i've tried a few.. i'll say pampers n huggies will b my best choice.. can try the cheaper version of pampers.. orangy red packet.. bout 19cents per piece.. though scented ( not very, cant really smell the scent), it's cutting is suitable for babies wib "solid" thighs.. lol.. but my gal abit extreme.. she every feeding also wanna change diaper.. then when changing, she laugh out loud somemore.. *pengz* she wears that for day time..
then night time.. she wear drypers, she can wear thru the night from bout 10pm to next morning 8am.. only leak twice ( usually this way for bout 1-2mths ).. cost bout 20cents per piece (offer price at ntuc.. $20+ for 2 packet of 54, or was it 58, cant rmb.. free drypantz, total 8 pcs, convenient for bringing out to use.. cuz cleaner n more hygenic mahz..)
Seems like huggies not so popular, but it stated that the huggies ultra is Clinically proven*:
To help prevent diaper rash so that baby’s skin will stay healthy. Actually i tried huggies ultra on my baby and really got no rashes even can last for 12 hours through the night.
As for mamy poko, also very good, just that sometimes, it got a smell like poo poo, and we always mistaken that my baby really pooo pooo.
If your baby is still a newborn & the umbilical cord has not dropped off yet, I would strongly recommend you use MamyPoko ... which has an inverted-you at the belly button position which would reduce chances of abrasion to the cord.
After my boys' cord has dropped off, we used Huggies Ultra & was pretty happy with the softness ... however, when my boys became chubbier, Huggies seemed a bit restrictive becoz of their smaller/tighter cut.
That's when we switched to Pampers Active ... & never looked back, due to both its comfort & performance.
Usually, a piece could cost as high as $0.40 ... but during their promotion which happens on a quarterly basis @ NTUC, Carrefour & Giants on a rotational basis, prices can go as low as $0.30 per piece. That's when you'd see us stocking up with the whole trolley full of Pampers Active.
I use Fitti Velcro (NB) but my boy boy quite big, so abit small for him, then buy PET PET (S) but still quite small for him too, so mix the 2 together to use for nite time, I find both not bery heavy duty as I change almost like 3hrs to 4hrs when my boy boy wake up for milk at nite, (morning use cloth diapers). I bought Nepia (S) for my boy for going out shopping, good and absorb, sometimes if my boy cranky at nite, I'll use Nepia, can tahan up to 5 to 6 hours if my boy never wake up for milk between that hours. I used G.oon samples before and they are also good so have just order 3 pack of S size since they are having promotion at $14.90 per pack.
My dear daughter wears DryPantz to bed and when we bring her out. I find it's quite good. When she was younger, we used Mamy Poko also. That's soft and comfy as well. Pampers is good but exp.
I have tried drypers, fitti, huggies, pampers n mamy poko...
I find that Mamy poko is the best...
can last for up to ten hours...
so far no issues about rashes or heatiness using Mamy Poko...
Anyone knows whr to get the cheapest Mamy Poko?
Now my dear son uses M size (66 pcs for $24 from NTUC)...If got sale, can get that for $21.45 at NTUC...
Anyone know where it's sold cheaper??
SO Mommy Poko is the blus one huh?
Or the Boys & Girls type?
What about the Mommy Poko Value?
Anyone tried that? My friend just gave me half a pack to try. Havent try it yet.
I use pet pet during the day and huggies ultra for nite.. Huggies ultra very good absorbancy, sometimes if dear son no poop can last 5 to 6 hours without changing, but more ex. Pet pet cheaper so use during daytime, esp since dear son is BF baby, poop all the time...
think pampers new born is good cos there is this indicator that tells you when to change the diapers.
mamy poko is good cos of the material, remember the fitting is bigger. the S size as compared to dryers S size is much bigger.
dryers not so good but its cheap
huggies the worst i think cos it leaks
fiti so so
CK is having promotion on Pampers Active, bought size M at $14.50.

Mamy Poko Value really cannot make it ...only ever used the Blue Mamy Poko, but after comparing their samples at the supermarket, I also came to the same conclusion as you ... becoz Mamy Poko Value has smaller cut, lesser materials & maybe, even inferior materials.Originally Posted by Catty
I love Huggies Dry Comfort! Never leaks... Very good for my dear daughter. We use it at night when she sleeps...
pampers active baby still works the best for my girl.
any promo around for size xl?
manage to buy a few packs at cold storage some weeks back 3 packs of 34 at $44+ ...cheap.
mostly at ntuc promo 3 packs around $54+
tried mamy poko for my girl but seems that the tape will start to cause cut her thighs after a while.
moreover it's pretty damp when i trying pressing and causes some diaper rash.
