These are my favorite diapers and I have tried almost every brand (not many of the super cheap brands but middle ground and up). I have been using them off on and for 10 years. I am picky about diapers... if I go to change my baby and her skin is unusually wet due to poor absorbency I wont use that diaper again ( I toss the whole pack). I am a mom of 3 and am a diehard swaddlers fan. With this one I did try a new diaper that wasn't out with the others but the softness and absorbency didnt meet swaddlers. Between my 3 kids I've tried at least 15 different diapers and these by far win. They are so soft, no obnoxious odor, quick absorbency, tabs dont pull off easily, have wetness indicator and dont leak.
