If you’ve been around a while, you already know that different diaper brands fit different babies differently. Each baby has their own unique shape and size, and each diaper brand fits just a little different also. One specific diaper brand won’t fit a tall skinny baby the same way it will fit a round big baby (I don't like to use the phrase fat babies).
But, as someone who handles different diaper brands all day long, I have some opinions about which diaper brands might be some of the first to try when you’ve got a ‘Chunky Monkey’ on your changing table.
Please know, these are my opinions. The best way to find the perfect diaper fit for your baby is to try them out. You won’t know how any diaper fits your baby until it is on their bottom.
Bambo Nature – these diapers generally run big and roomy. Watch their sizing, they are different than standard diaper sizes!
Huggies Little Movers – these diapers have elastic that is meant to move with baby and have some of the most thigh room
Pampers Cruisers – like their Huggies counterpart, they have elastic to move with baby and extra thigh room
Earth’s Best – these diapers look narrow, but that gives those chunky legs more room to move
Babyganics – another narrower diaper option that leaves more leg room
ABBY&FINN – yet another of the narrow diapers. Make sure you size up, this brand runs a little small
Luvs – a frequent customer recommendation. Mom’s say they have the biggest leg area
Seventh Generation – another customer recommendation
There are many factors to consider when deciding on a diaper brand, how eco-friendly it is, if it is hypoallergenic, has a wetness indicator or is fragrance-free. But the main deciding factor is how the diaper fits. And you won’t know that until you try it out.
