Pampers Baby Dry Diapers - Cheap And Excellent

After trying several types of diapers, including some Luvs, Pampers and Huggies, we settled on Pampers Baby Dry diapers. There are several reasons for this and we have used up about 3-4 228-count "Economy Plus" boxes of Pampers Baby Dry Diapers Size 2 and now switched to size 3.


These Baby Dry diapers perform really well. One issue I had with Luvs is on at least some of them, the Velcro-like closure tabs (or whatever they are called) wouldn't stay closed sometimes and sometimes would only stay closed if you closed them once, but if you opened and closed them again (to readjust the location), they wouldn't close. That was really frustrating. Plus they seemed less soft than these Pampers.

The Pampers Baby Dry Diapers Size 2 was generally in line with what weights they were recommended for (12-18 lbs). We started using them at about 12.5 lbs and continued until 15.5 lbs, when they started getting tight, so we switched to size 3 (recommended starting at 16 lbs). That size was a little large at 15.5, but worked well even then.

Leak protection was good with leak guards that run in up-down direction and a stretchable waist band. Still, I don't like to make the waist band too tight, ditto the leg areas, so there were some leaks, but I guess it is expected. The liquid absorbency was also very good and we tend not to have our child wear the same diaper for a long time regardless how much liquid is there. The rule is, any liquid = new diaper.

The packaging is convenient and the diapers are easy to stack to keep them handy on the changing table. The new diapers smell fine and feature Sesame Street characters on the outside, which kids of the target age obviously can't appreciate. But I guess parents do.

The inside of the diaper is soft and the leak guards aren't hard. We had no issues with irritation or diaper rash while using these diapers. We use them together with Pampers Wipes.


These diapers are some of the least expensive of Pampers diapers, especially when bought in the 228-count "economy plus" boxes. I joined "Amazon mom" program (even though I am technically an "Amazon dad") and with their "Subscribe and Save", I get them at 30% off with free Prime 2-day shipping.

Throw an occasional 20%-off coupon (applied off the original price) and the diapers become half-price of what they are listed online and also about half-price of what they are in B&M (brick and mortar) stores. About 0.09-0.10 a diaper (for size 2 and size 3 respectively) and no sales tax. A very good deal in my book for a good diaper.

Pros: Low price (if bought online), good quality, absorbency and closures.
Cons: Doubt size 2 can be used at close to 18 lbs.

Bottom Line

The Pampers Baby Dry diapers work very well and, in an "Economy Plus Pack" are very cheap. I highly recommend them.
