When Little Boo was born, the nurses in the NICU covered his sweet little bottom in the tiniest little diaper I'd ever seen. Pampers Swaddlers was the diaper of choice at the hospital, and the Pampers family remained our diaper of choice throughout his diaper days. I will admit to trying other brands, both big name and store brands, but through all the stages, Pampers fit him best and gave the best protection. Other brands I found either sagged or leaked, or just didn't fit his body right. The initial idea of saving some money by buying cheaper diapers just resulted in me going through way more diapers. No money was saved in the end.
My best money-saving tip for buying diapers? Buy a brand you trust, and buy it in the biggest package available. The cost per diaper goes down considerably when you purchase a 156-count box instead of a 28-count bag. Of course, I don't recommend this strategy for your newborn to size 2 diapers - those little ones just grow too fast! If you do end up with an un-opened package of diapers your baby has outgrown, many stores will exchange them for a larger size package. Can't hurt to ask!
Little Boo is well beyond his diaper days now, but many of my fellow P&G Moms still have wee ones in Pampers. P&G sat down with four of them to create video interviews of their real life experiences with the diapers, potty training, and fun with their babies. You can view the videos on the Pampers YouTube channel, and I've included the links here for you:

Have a look and check out the advice these moms offer! I can tell you, watching these videos makes me a little melancholy for our own baby days.
