Pampers vs Huggies: Differences & Similarities

1. Size
Sizing labels are available on Huggies and Pampers diapers to indicate when you need to size up.

However, when it comes to extended size, Pampers wins this category. Both brands have parallel sizes that range from newborn (under 10 pounds) to size 6 (35 pounds or more). But Pampers also offers a size 7 (41+ pounds) for bigger toddlers.

2. Material
If you’re concerned about the substances in your baby’s diaper, both Huggies and Pampers use quite similar materials. Both brands are paraben- and chlorine-free, as well as latex-free. However, because no single diaper will work for every baby in the same manner, if your baby develops a rash after switching to a new diaper, you should be aware that they may be allergic to that type of diaper and look into other possibilities.

7. Eco-Friendly Diapers, Pampers Pure vs Huggies Special Delivery

Huggies Special Delivery and Pampers Pure Protection diapers are quite similar. They both use some plant-based components, and Pampers Pure Protection is fantastic because it doesn’t use chlorine bleaching at all. When it comes to ecologically responsible methods, they are somewhat ahead of Huggies due to their use of renewable energy and recyclable packaging, but neither variety is biodegradable, therefore both will end up in landfills.







Pampers Pure 
Free of chlorine bleaching, fragrances, parabens. 
Wetness Indicator 
Plant-based materials
Up to 12-hour leak protection
Hypoallergenic 
Free of Latex 

Huggies Special Delivery
Free of elemental chlorine, fragrances, parabens.
Wetness Indicator
23% Plant-based materials
Up to 12-hour leak protection
Hypoallergenic

Reviews Pros and Cons from Amazon for both products:

Huggies Special Delivery Reviews
Huggies Diaper that you wanna hug!
Pros
– They are super soft, and you will know that as soon as you hold them in your hands.
– They are good for sensitive skin
– Variation of cute prints that comes in the box, so you don’t have to look at the same prints repeatedly.
– Leak protection, absorbency and comfort are top notch to say the least.
– Comes with pee indicator

Cons
– They are not biodegradable thus not as environmentally friendly as I would like in this price point.
– They are not for overnight diapers, left alone for a long period of time, these will leak.

Pampers Pure Protection Review
Pros:
– Great for sensitive skin (hypoallergenic)
– Super soft material

Cons:
– Some said not enough absorbent for the whole night
– Pricey


8. Overnight protection, Huggies Overnight vs Pampers Swaddler Overnight?

Although everyone’s experience is different. But most review that we found, Pampers overnights don’t hold as much as Huggies overnights. When baby peed, many mothers discovered that Pampers quickly filled up and were so packed and heavy that the diaper would curl, leaving the baby wet and uncomfortable. The Huggies diaper was able to prevent leaks and keep her infant drier than the Pampers brand because of its higher waist.

However, even Huggies has better absorption and prevents leaks than Pampers Overnight. Some mothers found that Pampers Overnight is more comfortable because their material is softer than Huggies Overnight.






Reviews Pros and Cons from Amazon for both products:

Huggies Overnites Reviews
Pros:
– Good diapers overall.
– Soft, absorbent, and enough leakproof
– Fragrance free, No alergy for my kid

Cons:
– Some said it is pricey (but still worth cause for overnight protection)

Pampers Swaddlers Overnight Reviews
Some said Swaddler Overnight has better absorbency for night protection than Pampers Swaddler. But some also said they are the same.
Pros:
– Great for Overnight Protection
– Soft

Cons:
– Pricey


9. Active Babies, Pampers Cruisers vs Huggies Little Movers
Pampers Cruisers and Huggies Little Movers are listed at “Amazon’s Best Sellers in Disposable Diapers”, Huggies Little Movers is at #7 spot, while Pampers Cruiser is at #14 spot. Both are designed for active babies because they are stretchable and flexible. Both also completed with a wetness indicator and since they are not really for newborns or younger babies, their size is available from Size 3 (16-26lb). 

a. Safety?
Both are well-known companies that have been around for a long time.

Pampers Cruisers diapers are hypoallergenic and devoid of parabens, ethanol/alcohol, latex, PVC, BPA, chlorine, and other chemicals.

The Huggies Little Movers diaper is also hypoallergenic, fragrance-free, lotion-free, paraben-free, and chlorine-free, as well as free of natural rubber latex.

b. Absorbency?
Lockaway Channels are another feature of Pampers Cruisers that promises to keep moisture away from your baby’s skin. It also distributes wetness properly throughout the diaper, preventing buildups that could lead to leaks or diaper blowouts.

Still, some users have reported that Pampers Cruisers leak at night.

Huggies Little Movers also provides 12-hour protection and absorbs moisture from your baby’s skin, ensuring that it remains dry and healthy. It also has the infamous Huggies back-pocketed waistband, which collects all the feces and gore and prevents leaks.

However, Huggies Little mover was also mentioned by some that they are great for daytime protection, but they aren’t recommended for nightly use.






Huggies Little Movers
Pros:
-Affordable
-Good design
-Works well with active movers

Cons:
-Some said can cause rashes

Pampers Cruisers
Pros:
– These diapers are so thin, but hold a lot.
– The patterns are cute.
– Good for sensitive skin, no rashes

Cons:
– Some complained about side straps tearing off easily


10. Conclusion – Our Take
If you’re looking for daytime diapers or for Active Baby, we suggest you choose Huggies Little Mover due to their great design that suitable for active movers. Little Movers baby diapers feature a contoured shape and SnugFit Waistband that helps eliminate gaps at the legs & waist. Double Grip Strips hold the diaper in place and help prevent sagging while crawling, walking & running.

Then, if your baby’s skin is really sensitive, we suggest you choose Pampers Pure Protection. This type of diapers is clinically proven hypoallergenic. Their exclusive, plant-based liner** is enriched with shea butter to help nourish and protect skin while our outercover is enhanced with premium cotton, making Pampers Pure Protection diapers irresistibly soft and breathable.

If you’re looking diapers for overnight protection, you can choose Huggies OverNites. Based on many reviews that we collect, this diaper’s absorption is great for overnight protection. Huggies Overnites are designed to help keep your baby sleeping longer. Huggies’ DryTouch Liner includes extra absorbency & locks away moisture for up to 12 hours of overnight protection.

However, every baby is unique and if you feel the diapers give rashes or are uncomfortable to your baby, you must change and find other diapers that fit with your baby.
