In baby stores, the choice of dia­pers today is huge. There are very bud­get options, and there are pre­mi­um prod­ucts. There are dia­pers for boys, there are for girls, and there are uni­ver­sal dia­pers, that is, suit­able for both.

In gen­er­al, in terms of dia­pers, mar­keters have done their best. We, while com­pil­ing the rat­ing of the best dia­pers for new­borns, tried to take into account those char­ac­ter­is­tics that reflect their qual­i­ty, com­fort for the new­born, as well as the issue of cost, which is impor­tant for moth­ers. We care­ful­ly stud­ied the reviews of par­ents about dif­fer­ent brands, their pros and cons.

It is worth not­ing that there are a lot of man­u­fac­tur­ers of dia­pers for new­borns. Pam­pers, from which it all start­ed, are always pop­u­lar. But recent­ly, many moth­ers give pref­er­ence to Japan­ese dia­pers, which are very wide­ly rep­re­sent­ed on the Russ­ian mar­ket. More­over, every year the lead­ing man­u­fac­tur­ers of dia­pers improve their lines and release new improved prod­ucts.

Top 10 most pop­u­lar dia­pers for new­borns.

one. Pam­pers Pre­mi­um Care

The founders of dia­pers — Pam­pers — remain, per­haps, the most pop­u­lar and in demand among moth­ers today. The brand has sev­er­al lines, there are bud­get prod­ucts, there are more expen­sive ones. Pre­mi­um Care is the most expen­sive and high-qual­i­ty line. For chil­dren of the first months of life, sizes “zero” — up to 1.5 kg, “first” — from 2 to 5 kg, “sec­ond” — from 3 to 6 kg, “third” — from 5 to 9 kg are suit­able. Pre­sent­ed both in small pack­ages of 20 pieces, and large — 114–160.

What do moms like
Moms note that the dia­pers are very thin and incred­i­bly soft inside. Com­fort­able stretchy sides. Due to the unique lay­er, the dia­per absorbs mois­ture well, as well as loose stools, does not leak. The man­u­fac­tur­er claims that the baby can stay dry for up to 12 hours. There is a spe­cial cutout for the navel, a mois­ture indi­ca­tor, a very com­fort­able fit.

2. Hug­gies Elite Soft

This is an inno­v­a­tive devel­op­ment of the com­pa­ny — a new super-soft lay­er “Tex­tor” has appeared in dia­pers. It has spe­cial pads that pro­vide soft­ness and com­fort to the skin of the new­born. For chil­dren of the first months of life, the “first” size is suit­able — up to 5 kg, the “sec­ond” — from 3 to 6 kg, the “third” is from 5 to 9 kg. Large pack­ages, for exam­ple, 176 pieces, are much more prof­itable to pur­chase than small ones.

What do moms like
There are a lot of pos­i­tive reviews of moth­ers about Hug­gies. They are sat­is­fied with the absorbent qual­i­ties, includ­ing loose stools. High sides around the legs, as well as an elas­tic inner pock­et, well pro­tect all places from leak­age. The dia­per is soft, thin, fits well, secure­ly fixed. There is a mois­ture indi­ca­tor, a cute design with Win­nie the Pooh.

3. Libero New­born

These dia­pers in the line of the pop­u­lar Swedish brand are designed specif­i­cal­ly for new­borns. They come in three sizes: “zero” — up to 2.5 kg, “one” — from 2.5 to 5 kg, and “two” — from 3 to 6 kg. Sold in packs of 24 to 94 pieces. Per­haps this is one of the most suc­cess­ful options for val­ue for mon­ey. The dia­pers are made of breath­able nat­ur­al mate­ri­als, mois­ture is well absorbed and even­ly dis­trib­uted through­out the dia­per. Cute design — each pack­age con­tains two types of dia­pers.

What do moms like
There is a cutout for the navel, so that the umbil­i­cal wound does not rub. There is no lotion impreg­na­tion, and there­fore the dia­pers do not have a smell that moth­ers do not always like. It also elim­i­nates the risk of aller­gies. The waist­band is elas­tic, the sides stretch, the elas­tic bands on the legs are soft — they do not press, do not rub. There is a fill­ing indi­ca­tor.

four. Mer­ries

Japan­ese brand of dia­pers, which is very fond of Russ­ian moth­ers and is very pop­u­lar. Despite the rather high cost, par­ents are will­ing to pay for the qual­i­ty of these dia­pers. They are made using spe­cial Japan­ese tech­nol­o­gy from three breath­able lay­ers. The size range for new­borns is as fol­lows: “XS” — from 0 to 3 kg, “first” — from 0 to 5 kg, “S” — from 4 to 8 kg, “M” — from 6 to 11 kg (in this cat­e­go­ry are pre­sent­ed both clas­sic dia­pers and panty dia­pers). You can also choose a small pack­age — 24 pieces, and a large one — 90–128 pieces.

What do moms like
Moms note the good absorbent prop­er­ties of dia­pers and their breatha­bil­i­ty, which is why the so-called “green­house effect” is not cre­at­ed. The inner wavy lay­er is very soft, pro­vides gen­tle con­tact with the skin of the new­born, absorbent — it absorbs well not only mois­ture, but also liq­uid stools, and the out­er lay­er retains liq­uid and removes warm stale air. The dia­per has an elas­tic band, there is a full­ness indi­ca­tor. In addi­tion, the dia­per is cov­ered with witch hazel extract, whose med­i­c­i­nal prop­er­ties have been known for a very long time, it pro­tects the baby’s skin from inflam­ma­tion and irri­ta­tion.

5. Moony

Anoth­er Japan­ese brand that has won the trust of Russ­ian moth­ers. Very soft dia­pers with an inner cot­ton sur­face that does not irri­tate the skin of the new­born. Moony uses super­ab­sorbents, due to which the absorbed mois­ture is con­vert­ed into a gel, does not get on the skin of the new­born, it remains dry. The size range is the same as that of oth­er man­u­fac­tur­ers, but unlike Mer­ries, there is no “XS” size up to 3 kg. The line starts with the size “NB” (New­born — new­born) — from 0 to 5 kg, but for small chil­dren they can be too big. Avail­able in both small and large pack­ages.

What do moms like
Moms note that Moony breathe well, absorb well, the baby’s skin remains dry. They fit quite snug­ly, so leaks are extreme­ly rare. And by the way, unlike oth­er Japan­ese dia­pers, it is Moony that has a cutout for the navel. There is also a fill­ing indi­ca­tor.

6. goon

Also a Japan­ese brand, wide­ly rep­re­sent­ed on the Russ­ian mar­ket. They are almost as good as the pre­vi­ous Moony and Mer­ries, but they are cheap­er. As for sizes, GooN has a sep­a­rate option for very tiny ones — “XXS” — from 2 to 3 kg. True, find­ing this size is not easy. Oth­er­wise, this is the size range, like oth­er Japan­ese dia­pers: for chil­dren in the first months of life, “NB” is from 0 to 5 kg, “S” is from 4 to 8 kg and “M” is from 6 to 11 kg.

What do moms like
On the sides and cuffs are very soft rub­ber bands, do not press and do not rub. Very soft and thin, com­fort­able fit, there is a fill­ing indi­ca­tor. The navel cutout is miss­ing. Accord­ing to the obser­va­tions of moth­ers, GooN lasts for less time than, for exam­ple, Mer­ries, so they may not always be suit­able for a night’s sleep.

7. Lovu­lar hot wind

This is a UK stamp. Dia­pers can also be attrib­uted to the pre­mi­um seg­ment both in terms of qual­i­ty and cost. While they are not as pop­u­lar as the brands we have described above, nev­er­the­less, these dia­pers also have a lot of fans. The pre­fix “Hot wind” in the name means that the dia­pers are cre­at­ed using the tech­nol­o­gy of pre-treat­ment of mate­ri­als with ultra-hot steam (200 degrees), due to which the fab­ric is straight­ened, the fibers are loos­ened, the dia­per becomes very ten­der. In addi­tion, not so long ago, the new Lovu­lar Hot wind ster­ile appeared in the Hot wind line — when they are cre­at­ed, ion­iz­ing radi­a­tion is used, the dia­per is as safe as pos­si­ble to use when heal­ing the umbil­i­cal wound. There are two sizes suit­able for new­borns — “XS” — from 2 to 5 kg, and “S” — from 0 to 6 kg or from 3 to 7 kg.

What do moms like
Moms note the excel­lent qual­i­ty of these Eng­lish dia­pers: very soft, like a feath­er, absorb well and hold mois­ture for a long time, they can be safe­ly used for a night’s sleep. The skin breathes, does not fade. Accord­ing to the obser­va­tions of moth­ers, Lovu­lar Hot wind dia­pers are small, and if the child has almost reached the upper lim­it of the size indi­cat­ed on the pack­age, it is bet­ter to take the next one. Anoth­er point: the fill­ing indi­ca­tor does not turn bright, like most oth­er dia­pers, but rather dis­ap­pears.

eight. Helen Harp­er Baby

Good and inex­pen­sive Bel­gian dia­pers. Accord­ing to the man­u­fac­tur­er, it pro­vides the new­born with dry­ness for up to 8 hours. The dia­pers have three absorbent lay­ers, the out­er lay­er is breath­able, thanks to which the stale air is well removed. The sides stretch, the dia­per sits quite tight­ly.

What do moms like
