Don't let the thinness fool you.
October 5, 2018
Okay I bought the cheaper opened box, because I figured no one would sell me bad diapers. The box was the shipping box so any distress came from my husband bringing it home (we can't have things shipped a to our house). The box may have been opened but it was taped back closed. The diapers inside had not been opened and were still in their plastic bags.
Now the diaper itself. It feels thinner than the Pampers Baby Dry that I bought at our local grocery store. I have two photos comparing the Pampers Baby Dry from the store, to Huggies and these Pampers Swaddlers bought off Amazon. The store bought Pampers do not have the wetness indicator but they do have Sesame Street characters. My kid is 1, he does not care about Sesame St. Since I use the Baby Dry for nighttime, the lack of a wetness indicator is not a deal breaker. The Swaddlers from Amazon are way thinner than the Baby Dry, but they have a wetness indicator and they have this interior liner that I really like. You can see the difference between the two in the photograph. The Swaddlers don't have any trademarked characters. I did manage to find some Swaddlers I bought from the grocery store that were at the bottom of my diaper bag and those have Sesame St characters. They also feel a smidge thicker than the ones off Amazon, but that could be because the ones from Amazon are fresh out of the box being smooshed against other diapers as opposed to a diaper that has been beat up a little over a month in a diaper bag. If having those characters are important to you then know these diapers don't have Big Bird.
These are more expensive than Huggies, and both versions of Pampers are a little bigger than Huggies. Apparently my baby has a big butt and I cannot lie. Pampers fit over his big old butt better than the Huggies. These are all size 5 as he's 23 lbs, but I'll be getting a size bigger of the Huggies because of his big bottom.
I haven't had any experiences of blow outs, but I think that's just luck.
