Disclosure: In return for writing about my honest thoughts about Pampers and sharing about their upcoming campaign, I received a package of wipes and a Babies R Us Giftcard. While some facts were provided by the pr company all opinions are 100% my own.
My husband always says it is worth paying extra for something that affects your daily life in a positive manner. I buy into this theory however when I started buying Pampers for my first (and only) baby it was solely because they were the only brand of diapers I had ever used for babies. Working as a NICU nurse for six years before taking some time off, I can tell you that I have used an ungodly number of diapers in my day. I knew that if Pampers were good enough to use on fragile little people they would be the best thing for my baby as well.

I will be honest, now that my boy is 22 months, we have deviated a bit to try other cheaper brands. We were even sent another brand of pull ups to try and blog about. I was so unsatisfied with those diapers that I declined writing the review at all (why write a totally negative post- no one likes a Debbie Downer). We have tried Target brand, Costco, and even Sams. Some of them worked ok and some of them I deemed "daytime diapers." Daytime diapers are the kind of diapers that work ok as long as you change your kid every couple hours. I then found myself buying Pampers (the good amazingly absorbent and soft diapers) for night time, trips, and longer excursions and then using the off brands when I knew I could change him often. While this may have been slightly more cost effective it added a whole other level of complication to our diaper changing lives. Alas, back to my husbands theory- spend a little extras on those things that just make your daily life easier (Pampers).
So now you know Pampers are my favorite but which ones to choose? Cruisers, swaddlers, easy ups? It can be kind of confusing. Pampers Swaddlers are my absolute favorite. They are incredibly soft AND absorbent. We used them until we simply could not find the sizes we needed at the places we shopped. I am excited to let you know that Babies R Us and Toys R Us now carry Pampers Swaddlers in sizes 0-5. While I have always found that Pampers Swaddlers excel at absorbing liquid, other new improvements have been made on the line. Pampers Swaddlers now feature an absorb-away lining, wetness indicator and new packaging and graphics.
From September 19-21 Babies”R”Us customers will receive a free $20 Babies“R”Us Gift Card with an in-store purchase of any two Pampers value boxes of diapers (78 ct. or higher).
