Diaper Brand Spotlight Series: Well Beginnings

With gazillions of different diaper brands out there, it’s hard to know which ones to buy for your baby. By doing your research and comparing the brands, you can narrow down the list of diapers you’d like to try. Here we’ve compiled the available information about Walgreens Well Beginnings Diapers in one convenient post for you.

Here is everything you ever wanted to know about Walgreens Well Beginnings diapers.

Any mistakes or inaccuracies in this post are my own, and I will gladly correct them with the right information, once I know about it. To find further information about Well Beginnings diapers, visit their website at www.walgreens.com.

Let’s start with my completely subjective thoughts about Walgreens Well Beginnings diapers. These diapers are trim and absorbent, they aren’t too “fluffy”. They also aren’t a very strong-smelling diaper.

Diaper Brand Spotlight Series: Well Beginnings Pinterest

Here’s the basics:

Well Beginnings diapers are an economical choice, with their regular prices currently running between $.14-$.30 per diaper, and sales often making the price less.

Well Beginnings diapers are made in the USA.

Well Beginnings diapers are sold in Walgreens stores and online.

 

What is actually in a Well Beginnings diaper? What are Well Beginnings diapers made of?

Well Beginnings diapers were recently reformulated and no longer contain aloe or "botanicals". The absorbent core is made of Cellulose (wood pulp fibers) and Sodium Polyacrylate Polymer (a Super Absorbent Polymer or SAP commonly found in diapers).

These diapers do not contain latex, aloe or perfumes.

Sizes newborn, size 1 and size 2 have a wetness indicator.

Well Beginnings also makes Training Pants in sizes 2T/3T and 3T/4T. Training pants are available in a boys package and a girls package. Training pants have designs that fade when wet.

 

Walgreens Well Beginnings sizing:

 Newborn Less than 10 pounds
Size 1 8-14 pounds
Size 2 12-18 pounds
Size 3 16-28 pounds
Size 4 22-37 pounds
Size 5 27+ pounds
Size 6 35+ pounds
2T/3T 18-34 pounds
3T/4T 38+ pounds

     

Just for giggles, some common misspellings for Well Beginnings are Well-Beginnings and Well Beginings.

Diaper Brand Spotlight Series: Luvs Ultra Leakguards
With gazillions of different diaper brands out there, it’s hard to know which ones to buy for your baby. By doing your research and comparing the brands, you can narrow down the list of diapers you’d like to try. Here we’ve compiled the available information about Luvs Ultra Leakguards diapers in one convenient post for you.
     
*Disclaimer: This post is in no way sponsored or endorsed by Luvs® brand. I’m just a mama who knows how to use her keyboard to find information. Any mistakes or inaccuracies in this post are my own, and I will gladly correct them with the right information, once I know about it. To find further information about Luvs diapers, visit their website at www.luvs.com.
     
Here is everything you ever wanted to know about Luvs diapers.
     
Let’s start with my completely subjective thoughts about Luvs diapers. Luvs are made by the same folks that brought you Pampers diapers. But Luvs cost less. I’d say these are ‘middle of the road’ in terms of trimness, between Pampers thin diapers and Huggies fluffy diapers. Luvs diapers also contain fragrance. In my opinion, they are the most fragrant diaper out there.

Here’s the basics:
Luvs diapers are manufactured by Procter & Gamble in the USA. Pampers diapers are also manufactured by P&G.
     
What isn’t in a Luvs diaper?
Luvs diapers do not contain dioxin. Their suppliers use an elemental chlorine-free process to purify the pulp fibers for their diapers, which does not create dioxin.
Luvs does not contain latex. Both Pampers and Luvs use spandex elastic instead of natural rubber latex.
       
Luvs diapers only makes Luvs diapers. No training pants, overnights, or other brands about it. Simple, basic and effective.
       
Luvs diapers do have an Ultra Leakguard Money Back Guarantee. If they leak, they will give you your money back, you just have to send in your receipt to them within 45 days. They will only do this once per person or household, though.

Luvs sizing:
 Newborn/Size 0 Up to 10 lbs.
Size 1 8-14 lbs.
Size 2 12-18 lbs.
Size 3 16-28 lbs.
Size 4 22-37 lbs.
Size 5 27 + lbs.
Size 6 35 + lbs.
         
Luvs also makes some of my favorite diaper commercials. Hand’s down, this is my favorite commercial. They go for the funny commercials over the sweet making-hormonal-moms-cry type of commercials. And I love them for that.
      
Just for giggles, some common misspellings for Luvs are Luv’s, Luve, Luves, Luve’s and Luv. 😂😂😂😂
    
And there you have it. Everything you ever wanted to know about Luvs diapers.
Diaper Dabbler carries 3-pack samples of Luvs Ultra Leakguards in size 1 and size 3.

Diaper Brand Spotlight Series: Pampers
With gazillions of different diaper brands out there, it’s hard to know which ones to buy for your baby. By doing your research and comparing the brands, you can narrow down the list of diapers you’d like to try. Here we’ve compiled the available information about Pampers Diapers in one convenient post for you.
       
Here is everything you ever wanted to know about Pampers diapers.
*Disclaimer: This post is in no way sponsored or endorsed by Pampers® brand. I’m just a mama who knows how to use her keyboard to find information. Any mistakes or inaccuracies in this post are my own, and I will gladly correct them with the right information, once I know about it. To find further information about Pampers diapers, visit their website at www.pampers.com.
            
Let’s start with my completely subjective thoughts about Pampers diapers. Pampers diapers are a very trim and thin diaper. They don’t look like they could soak up a lot, but they hold their own against other diapers. Pampers Swaddlers, Swaddlers Sensitive and Cruisers are their premium lines of diapers, while their Baby Dry diapers are their budget line. Comparing them side-by-side, you can feel the difference between the diapers. The Swaddlers are softer and feel “cushier”. Pampers brand diapers do contain fragrance.
     
Pampers Easy Ups Training Underwear are made for either Girls or Boys. Their styles have the same features, but different designs and more targeted absorbency depending on the gender.
       
Diaper Brand Spotlight Series: Pampers
      

Here’s the basics:
Pampers diapers are manufactured by Procter & Gamble in the USA. Luvs diapers are also manufactured by P & G. Pampers diapers were first introduced in 1961. Their website is www.pampers.com.

         
What is actually in a Pampers diaper? What are Pampers diapers made of?
Pampers diapers contain multiple layers including a top sheet with lotion, an absorption layer made from polyester fibers, and the distribution layer which contains the super-absorbent gel. Pampers diapers do contain pigments (not dyes) for the cute designs on the outside of the diapers. They also contain fragrance.
       
What isn’t in a Pampers diaper?
Well, a lot of things! Pampers boasts that their diapers do not contain BPA, dioxins, disperse dyes, elemental chlorine (they use an elemental chlorine-free process to purify the fibers in their diapers which the FDA believes to be a safe and dioxin-free method), ethanol and isopropyl (rubbing alcohol), natural rubber latex, lead and mercury, organotins, parabens, pesticide residues, phenol, Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC) or preservatives.
         
Pampers makes many versions of their diapers including: Pampers Swaddlers, Pampers Swaddlers Sensitive, Pampers Baby Dry, Pampers Cruisers, Pampers Swaddlers Overnights, and Pampers Easy Ups Training Underwear (for Girls or Boys).
       
Pampers sizing:
Preemie < 6 pounds
Newborn < 10 pounds
Size 1 8-14 pounds
Size 2 12-18 pounds
Size 3 16-28 pounds
Size 4 22-37 pounds
Size 5 >27 pounds
Size 6 >35 pounds
Size 7 >41 pounds
2T/3T 22-37 pounds (size 4)
3T/4T >27 pounds (size 5)
4T/5T >41 pounds (size 6)
     
It is interesting to note that the 2T/3T, 3T/4T, and 4T/5T sizes are CLOTHES sizes, and their diaper sizes compare to a size 4, size 5 and size 6 diaper.
    
Each different Pampers brand has a few different features, while some of the basics stay the same.

Diaper Brand Spotlight Series: Huggies

With gazillions of different diaper brands out there, it’s hard to know which ones to buy for your baby. By doing your research and comparing the brands, you can narrow down the list of diapers you’d like to try. Here I’ve compiled the available information about Huggies Diapers in one convenient post for you.

Here is everything you ever wanted to know about Huggies diapers.

 

*Disclamer: This post is in no way sponsored or endorsed by Huggies® brand. I'm just a mama who knows how to use her keyboard to find information. Any mistakes or inaccuracies in this post are my own, and I will gladly correct them with the right information, once I know about it. To find further information about Huggies diapers, visit their website at www.huggies.com.

 

We'll start with my completely subjective thoughts about Huggies diapers:
Huggies diapers are plush and absorbent. They won’t be called “trim” diapers. Little Snugglers and Little Movers are Huggies’ premium line, while their Snug & Dry is their “budget” line diaper. And comparing them side-by-side, it’s obvious. They look and feel different, but all do their main duty. Huggies is not an overly-perfumed diaper.

Huggies used to make a Pure & Natural diaper made with some organic cotton. This diaper was discontinued in 2015.

Pull-Ups are currently made for either Girls or Boys. Their styles have the same features, but different designs and more targeted absorbency depending on gender.

 

Diaper Brand Spotlight Series: Huggies Diapers

 

Here's the basics:         
Huggies brand diapers are manufactured by Kimberly-Clark Corporation, headquartered in Neenah, Wisconsin. Huggies diapers are manufactured in the USA at plants in Beech Island, South Carolina, Ogden, Utah and Paris, Texas. Huggies were first marketed to the public in 1978 to replace the Kimbies brand. Huggies website is www.huggies.com.

          
What is actually in a Huggies diaper? What are Huggies diapers made from?
“The inside absorbent padding on Huggies® diapers is made of a fluffy, paperlike material called wood cellulose fiber and a super-absorbent material called polyacrylate. Other materials used include polypropylene, polyester, and polyethylene -- all synthetic materials designed to enhance the fit of the diaper and help stop leaks. The elastic strands in all Huggies diapers are made of synthetic rubber for a snug but gentle fit for baby.”
“The fluffy, absorbent fibers used in United States Huggies diapers are made from wood pulp sourced from suppliers who practice sustainable forest management.”

Source: Huggies website.

             

Huggies makes many versions of their diapers including; Huggies Little Snugglers, Huggies Little Snugglers Plus (available at Costco), Huggies Little Movers, Huggies Little Movers Plus (available at Costco), Huggies Little Movers Diaper Pants, Huggies OverNights, Huggies Snug & Dry, Huggies Little Swimmers disposable swimpants, Huggies Pull-Ups for Boys and Huggies Pull-Ups for Girls.

 

 Huggies sizing:

Preemie

1-5 pounds

Newborn

6-9 pounds

Size 1

8-14 pounds

Size 2

12-18 pounds

Size 3

16-28 pounds

Size 4

22-37 pounds

Size 5

>27 pounds

Size 6

>35 pounds

2T/3T 18-34 pounds
3T/4T 32-40 pounds
4T/5T 38-50 pounds

 

Each different Huggies brand has different features, while some of the basics stay the same. All diapers fit babies. Some of them have a "great fit" and some have a "contoured fit", overall that means little when comparing them. I'm including the differences that are really differences and the features that mean something to parents.
