Pampers Pure Protection Review
With the first baby, she kept getting rashes with the normal pampers and huggies. Switching the the Pampers sensitive appeared to have help. On the second baby, she still got random rashes but less frequent than first baby. Switched to the Pure, and the rashes was rare. With the third baby, using the Pure was a no brainer and it’s confirmed maybe one rash in over a year and that might be related to food…
 
Absorbency: this can hold a ton of liquid for sure and several sessions and the thing can weigh like a brick! Maybe if ignoring too long it will overflow, but that’s a personal issue (Bad parent)!
 
Sensitive Skin: you are more likely to get a rash if you do not change the diapers, lol. But even with neglect, as most parents experience specially at night, the Pure brand has really helped with rashes. We don’t even dry it at all after we wipe and no issues.

Pampers Baby Dry Review
We generally use Huggies diapers because when my LO was younger she couldn’t wear Pampers (due to rashes) but we tried again now that she is in a size 6 (right before potty training goes into full effect) and low and behold she’s no longer allergic!
 
The difference between these and Huggies Snug n’ Dry are that the tabs don’t rip off the diaper and they seem to hold much better over night, the 3 channels really soak up everything and when you touch the diaper when it’s full it does not feel very wet. Also our diaper pail smells a LOT better. These diapers seem to contain the #2 smell, wile other diapers wrapped up tight just smell yuck! We will definitely be using PAMPERS till we’re out of diapers for sure!!!

Pampers Cruisers 360 Reviews
We LOVE these diapers. My little guy is huge (greater than 99%). He has chunky thighs and a belly. The tape sided diapers (all brands) were rubbing & chaffing him so bad. Then he discovered how to rip the tape off and get the diaper off! So at 13 months we switched him to these. We’ve been using them for almost 4 months and LOVE them. He can’t get them off! When he poo’s I just rope the sides and it comes off like a normal diaper. These babies hold a TON of liquid too. He never has leaks.

Pampers Swaddlers Overnight Reviews
I almost didn’t buy these based on reviews saying they are the same as regular pampers BUT as a scientist I remembered that the thing that creates the absorbency is in between the cloth layers. It sucks up the liquid which is why a wet diaper bulges and is so heavy. 
 
So I decided to try these and they are AMAZING! We use pampers swaddles during the day and he was peeing through them (well more they reached full capacity so his pee would sneak out the top since he sleeps on his stomach now)…he has not had a single leak with these! I know we are only 4 days in but that tells me they are without a doubt more absorbent than the regular ones. So Pampers is not trying to be sneaky and rebrand its normal diapers as overnight. I’m so glad I bought these and I highly recommend!!

Comparison of Pampers Diapers

a. Texture
Pampers Swaddlers are the softest out of the three, these diapers are designed with newborn and premature babies in mind.

b. Absorbency
Pampers Cruisers and Pampers Swaddlers have two layers of absorbency. Pampers Baby Dry diapers has three, making it the most absorbent out of the three.

c. Odor Protection
Cruisers and Swaddlers have a special baby-friendly aroma that helps keep bad odor. Baby Dry does not have this aroma. Swaddlers has a slight baby powder odor that some parents dislike.

d. Leak Guard Protection
Pampers Cruisers come with Dual Leak-Guard Barriers that gently seal around the legs and bottom to stop leaks where they happen most. It also features lock-away channels that absorb wetness and keep moisture away from the skin.

The legs of Baby Dry diapers are smooth and flexible. As a result, they fit on your baby’s legs perfectly, which prevents leaking.
a. Absorbency
While all three diapers provide 12-hour protection, they do so in various ways due to the absorption technology they use. Pampers Baby Dry has three layers of absorbency, while Pampers Pure has Absorb Away Liners.

b. Fragrance
Pampers Pure diapers are fragrance-free. Baby Dry is scented, with a note that the brand claims that they use a non-allergenic and non-irritating fragrance in low levels.

c. Design
Pampers Baby Dry diapers are Sesame Street themed. Pampers Pure, on the other hand, is unquestionably the winner in terms of design! Each pack contains a choice of prints that vary depending on the size you purchase.
Both are great for nighttime protection. 
Both have a wetness indicator and provides protection for up to 12 hours. 
 
Pampers Swaddlers Overnights is only available from sizes 3 through 6, whilst Baby Dry is available from newborn to size 6. 
 
Pampers Swaddlers Overnights appear to be a little more expensive than Baby Dry, which isn’t odd given that they’re just as effective as Baby Dry but are softer.

FAQ

Most newborns gain about 3 pounds during the first month and babies born with a higher birth weight tend to skip this diaper size altogether. Therefore, there’s no point stockpiling on size NB.

You can always start small. Try stockpiling no larger than size 1, just in case you don’t like the first brand you try.

Once you get a feel for fit, cost, brand, and size, go ahead and purchase more — up to an entire year’s worth or more of diapers. Keep in mind your own baby’s weight and rate of gain when planning. Never pay full price for diapers unless it’s an emergency (more on saving on diapers below).

Keep in mind that different brands may work better or worse for different babies, so be open to trying a few different diapers before you decide on the right ones for you. Sometimes a diaper that costs a little more is a better fit and works better, making it worth the extra money.

There are side effects to parabens, which can enter the body through the skin or ingested by way of food. Since it only takes 26 seconds for a chemical to be absorbed through the skin, and enter the bloodstream, it doesn’t take long for parabens to enter the body. Parabens are absorbed in the digestive system as well.
 
Parabens are known to cause the following health concerns..
 
– Endocrine Disruption: Parabens mimic estrogen in the body, potentially causing hormonal imbalance.  
 
– Cancer: Parabens mixed with other estrogenic chemicals can cause malignant melanoma to develop. A study also found a link betweenbreast cancer tumors and parabens putting even young babies at risk from an early age.
 
– Developmental and Reproductive Toxicity: Parabens tend to cause lower sperm production causing androgen disruption. It also causes hormonal imbalance in females because of its estrogenic effects in the body. Too much estrogen can cause fertility issues later on in life because it disrupts ovulation.
 
– Genotoxic: Exposure to parabens for pregnant women can affect fetal organs because of genotoxicity where parabens directly affect the DNA and chromosome cells in an unborn fetus.
