Diapers- Mom tested. Baby approved.

Department: kid stuff

Target diapers actually work!

I would post a photo of a diaper from Target or a box of diapers from Target but they don't sell them online (much to my annoyance) and I am too lazy (tired actually as a mother of a newborn) to get up and take a photo with my camera and then upload to blog.

Anyway with my first child I had this theory that since we went through so many diapers a day and since I work from home and could change her at her every whim that I would use store brand (what other store is there than Target?) diapers for all of her day wear and then high end brand at night when she goes for longer stretches. This ideas was genius until I tried Target diapers 3 years ago and found them to be utter crap. They held nothing, felt like crap and were craptastic.

Fast forward 3 years and I have a newborn. I remembered my theory and rushed that little red cart over to the diaper aisle. I purchased with hesitation and low and behold the diapers blow my mind. LOVE them. I think a mom must have been promoted to head store brand diaper engineer because they rock. They hold the pee pee and they feel just like huggies! My new baby pees like crazy and goes through about 12 diapers a day ( is this normal?) and they work like a charm. IF only I could get them online so I didn't have to leave the house so often!

The Target brand formulas aren't bad either. They pretty much match Enfamil but why is the powder more greasy to the touch? Someone please tell me.


  • I tried Target diapers when X-man was about 4 months old (so...a little over a year ago) and found the diapers to be terrible! They didn't stretch at all like Huggies (which is what I have stuck with) and they didn't seem as absorbent.

    But with Baby #2 on the way, I might have to try the Target diapers again hearing your review!

    And we did the Target formula, too, with great success, after X-man switched to formula!

  • The Target diapers didn't work when my son was a newborn, but now at size 6, they are a dream. So don't discount them all together, babies change.

    Enfamil seemed to be a more refined powder, but Target worked just as well. I don't remember the greasy feeling, though.

  • 12 diapers a day? Yikes! I just found out I'm pregnant with twins and have been wondering how many I'll go through. Think I need to start collecting them now! I'll surely give Target brand a try.

  • target diapers do rock!! with my 1st, now almost 5, I didn't care for them either. but with my now 3 year old, we loved them.

  • I've been using them on my toddler daughter for about 4 months now and have been very pleased. I too put them on her during the day, but use a high end brand at bedtime, or for extended outings away from home. We've only had one major caught up running errands between Home Depot, Lowes, and the Mall...the last time I got her out of the car seat she was SOAKED from her knees to mid chest. This would not have happened in her pampers. So basically, if you think you might have to push it (time wise), put on something more expensive. But at $10.59 for a large package you're still saving $$$ even if you don't use them every time.

  • I think the Target diapers work wonderfully! Both my son and daughter have used them successfully. Maybe it just depends on the age and the kid??

  • i love target diapers. i love that the per diaper cost is 10-14¢ each. that's even less than the costco brand! and they are the same thing. hate the wal-mart brand. they are cheapy and run small. hate huggies. hate luvs. i'm okay with pampers but hate the smell (esp after they are wet...yuck!) and that they are 20-25¢ each. the albertsons brand is the same as the target but cost more and have a girly design (i have a boy!). i wish they hadn't changed the diapers from the care bears. they seemed to lower quality when they switched to the bug and frog and butterfly with the multi-color dots. but i can't complain too much. love the target diapers!

  • I usually use White Cloud diapers from Wal-Mart, but the price recently went up. I have used Target brand diapers in the past and they were okay. I thought I'd try them again since they were on sale. However, they recently changed the design from Care Bears to Bugs and the quality changed as well. My daughter woke up soaked all the way up her back. Even though Target brand are cheaper, I'll be sticking with White Cloud from Wal-Mart.

  • I firt tried white cloud diapers after pampers and they were like wraping my baby in a paper towel, didn't hold anything, so it took me a wile and a crunch before i tried the target brand diapers, and i'm glad i did, i fell in love, they work great and are cheeper than pampers or even luvs, i'll never go back.

  • Target brand diapers are useless pieces of crap. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Pampers Swaddlers and Cruisers, but didn't love the price, so I thought I'd give Target diapers a try on a frugal whim one day..... Needless to say, I will never buy them again. My 9 month old wakes up with wet clothes more often than dry, and not once did he ever soak through a Pampers. They suck! Beware of Target brand diapers! They are so thin compared to my Pampers Cruisers, and they lack the stretchy sides as well. Plus, they don't have the baby powder scent of the Pampers either. They are definitely NOT worth the $$ saved. Boo Target brand!

  • had a son last October. Loved Pampers Swaddlers, but they were just way to expensive. We used the Parent's Choice Walmart brand diapers and they were okay, but they hit their limit after about 4 hours (which was the length my son goes between feedings and thus the length he sleeps-when he does sleep) so he woke up with wet clothes half the time. Tried Target brand after a friend suggested them and they work great!!

    My son is now sleeping 6 hours at night (or nightish, as he sometimes doesn't fall asleep until 1 to 2 am) and they make it through his entire sleep cycle without any problems.

    The Parent's Choice (walmart brand) ready made formula is great though. It compares well with Similac but is over a dollar cheaper. My son spits out the powdered formula so we have to use ready expensive.
