Great for newborn,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Huggies Pure & Natural Diapers, Size 1, 80 Count (Pack of 2) (Health and Beauty)We purchased two bags of newborn, 7th generation and Huggies pure & natural just to see which would be better before the baby arrived. Compared to 7th generation, Huggies P&N is softer, fit our 6lb baby better, and cord cut out is more accurate and spacious. The pull tabs are smaller to avoid skin contact (unlike 7th gen, which are pretty much full size) You can tell much more thoughts and experience went into Huggies' design. I guess this is the different between a pure diaper company vs "Generic Green" product company. From our experiences, both diapers absorbed well and have no leakage.
We also got some pampers swaddlers from our hospital. To be honest, they fit our LO the best. However, we had one leakage on them and we just can't stand the fragrance. We stacked them with 7th gen, and the next day, the 7th gen started to smell like pampers! That's how strong the stuff is! I sure don't want that on our newborn, 24x7! We still have an unopen pack sitting there for backup.
I didn't give 5 stars because I think they could be cheaper. Two things are not necessary on the diapers and I believe they just add cost (probably passed down to customers) One is the organic cotton. They are used in outer shell only, which means they never touch baby's skin, so what's the point? I rather see Chlorine free than Organic cotton outer shell. The other is the Winnie the pooh characters. Cute but totally not necessary, they are "swaddle" out anyways, only time you see them is when you change diapers... and I'm sure Huggies pay tons of license fee to Disney. I rather see generic design like pampers or no design like 7th gen.... and pass the savings to customers instead of passing the cost.

Hi, I wanted to help you. Saving money is the best!! Okay, for your next kid... use cloth diapers when they are 0-6 weeks old, at least. Maybe even 3-4 months. You wash a lot, but you will save so much money. When they are smaller, they need more diaper changes. Just get several cloth diapers on ebay. You can get real good ones on there from China for under 5.00 a piece. Just borax them 3-4 times before you ever use them on your kid. Then switch them over to huggies pure and natural. They won't notice the difference. If you want to really help them, don't use store bought wipes. Use wash cloths or soft cloths for their bottom. They will never fuss for a diaper change.

I agree with a lot of your points. I do like the organic cotton though, it's nice to have non-GMO cotton :) And buying on Amazon with subscribe & save and Prime is the cheapest I've seen... in the stores they are $20/pack and on Amazon you get 2 back for about $32... that's a pretty big savings and no hassle of coupons!
