When it comes to diapers, we are a hybrid family. My babies are in disposables (typically the ones they send home from the hospital) until they are 1-2 months old, and then I switch them to cloth. I’m not fanatical about the cloth thing though; if I don’t feel like doing the laundry or we are traveling, I don’t hesitate to use disposables again.

Meredith wore cloth until the end of last year when we changed her back for several reasons: I was super pregnant and didn’t want to do laundry every day, the diapers she fit in were velcro and worn out, and most of her pants weren’t fitting her because of the added bulk. So now she is just going to be in disposables until she potty trains, which I hope is soon, but from the way things are going it will be another year. (Sigh.)

Liam switched to cloth about a month ago, and it’s going great so far, but I always make sure to have disposables on hand for him just in case. So we are pretty experienced with the whole diaper spectrum, is what I’m saying.

I recently got the chance to team up with H-E-B to try out their brand of baby diapers. This is a Texas store, I believe, and it’s awesome. We do probably 90% of our shopping there because their prices are the best, they always have great deals and extra services, and so far I have loved all of their brand-specific products that I’ve tried. I’m happy to say that their baby diapers are no different! I tried them out on Liam over the weekend to give myself a break from laundry, and as you can see he was quite content wearing them.

So here are a few things you should know about these diapers: they are super thin – the thinnest I’ve seen, so compared to cloth Liam’s butt seemed so small! And the side wings are extra long so you feel like your baby is really covered, which is great for those of us with chubby babies. :) They are soft and hypoallergenic, lined with vitamins and aloe, which is cool. And they work great overnight! No leaks from my little dude, and no blowouts either! That’s always a positive, right?

They are also more affordable than other options, which is why these are now our go-to brand of disposable diapers that we keep on hand as our cloth backup. So I’m wondering, if you have babies or toddlers what is your diaper philosophy? Are you passionate about one brand or another?

    I’m glad that blanket is getting so much use, it makes me smile whenever I see it pop up on here :)

    From Joanna Jones:

    I recently tried Target brand diapers and feel the same way! They’ve revamped them since we used them with Emersyn, and I am very impressed! Like you we run the spectrum of diapers too, usually using cloth but always having disposable on hand.

    From kapachino:

    Oh cool! Target used to be my favorite as well, but we are at HEB all the time anyway, and also Target is a dangerous place when you’re on a budget so I’m trying to stay away. :)

    I’ve been using the Costco brand with Dash. They are great!

    From Kara:

    I’ve never done cloth diapers, but we’ve always used Huggies.The only other brand we’ve tried is Pampers, but they have a strong “diaper” smell to them and it gave Isla a bit of a diaper rash, so I quickly switched back. I’m tempted to try the Costco brand one of these days since I hear they’re made by the same folks as Huggies but are quite a bit cheaper.

    Oh I don’t like the ones with a smell either! Luvs are like that too. These are fragrance-free. :)

    From Nora:

    This is going to sound SO weird but I’m so intrigued by other people’s diaper decisions! I have only had my bonus kidlets during potty training years so I know my way around a pull-up (surprisingly the Walgreens brand is my favorite, Target is runner up) but not much about diapers, the cloth diapering and etc.

    From kapachino:

    Don’t worry, I was totally fascinated by diaper choices before I had kids too. People get really passionate about it!!

    From yours truly, melissa:

    People really DO get super passionate about diaper choices. I keep Alice in disposable diapers, Huggies specifically, and they’ve been terrific. I considered cloth diapering for a nano-second but knew that my husband’s gross out factor would not handle those very well and didn’t want to be the sole parent rinsing them out! Plus working full time… and a million other convenience factors.
