TTPM Announces Results of First Diaper Challenge

Parent panel puts 10 leading brands to the test comparing on six critical criteria.


Parents and caregivers confronted with the choice of more than 30 leading diaper brands in the 
U.S. may find themselves confused about which one is the best for their babies and toddlers.   
With diaper costs from birth to potty training hovering around $2000 per child, this represents 
one of the biggest baby expenses for which parents find very little guidance. 

Leading product review site TTPM® set out to make that process a little easier for consumers this
 spring as they fielded their first-ever TTPM Diaper Challenge. A panel of parents put 10 of the most 
popular brands head-to-head (or bum-to-bum) in a 30-day challenge to see which was best for their 
kids. More than 5,000 diapers were used over the course of a month. TTPM provided the diapers to
 the participants who rated the diapers on absorbency, odor control, fit/flexibility, comfort and overall 
quality, without respect to the price of diapers. 

Huggies Snugglers were the undisputed overall winner, capturing the top spot in four of the five 
categories tested. 

All diapers were rated by real families on a scale of 1-to-5 in each performance category . Brands 
sampled were: Bambo Nature, Babies “R” Us, Earth’s Best, Huggies Little Snugglers, Kirkland, Luvs, 
Pampers Cruisers, Parent’s Choice (Walmart), Seventh Generation, Up & Up (Target).  

“Parents research virtually every purchase they make for their children. That’s why they come to TTPM,” says Jim Silver CEO/Editor-in-Chief. “We realized that consumers are looking for direct comparisons among products, but 
there was no current comparison of diapers done with real families, so we married our expertise 
with product reviews to the practical experience of families to help consumers find the information 
they were lacking.” 

BEST OVERALL
The best overall performance with a 4.3 was from Huggies Little Snugglers that received high marks
on absorbency (4.8), odor (4.3), fit/flexibility (3.8), and comfort (4.8).  In fit/flexibility category, 
Kirkland, Costco’s brand, was rated highest at 4.6.  At $0.37 each, Huggies fell between the least 
expensive and most expensive diaper brand.   One reviewer said, “I have actually purchased these 
and have used them since the challenge.” Another commented, “We really like these diapers and 
actually switched to them.  The stripe indicator and overall quality were big selling points for us.”

BEST IN CATEGORIES
· Absorbency: Huggies Little Snugglers, Seventh Generation (4.6), Kirkland (4.2)
· Fit/Flexibility: Kirkland/Costco (4.6), Seventh Generation & Target’s Up & Up tied at 4.2
· Odor: Huggies Little Snugglers (4.3), Up & Up (4.2), Seventh Generation (4.0)
· Comfort: Huggies Little Snugglers (4.8), Up & Up (4.5), Kirkland (4.2)
· Quality: Huggies Little Snugglers (4.5), Up & Up (4.2), Kirkland (4.2)

A LOOK AT ECO- FRIENDLY

Although a selection of reviewers commented that eco-friendly was not an important criterion, 
eco-brand Seventh Generation was among the top three in absorbency, fit/flexibility and odor.  
The other two brands TTPM included in the comparative review were  Bambo Nature and  Earth’s 
Best.

I love love love her idea on how to make indoor snowballs with egg cartons. I am definitely going to have to try that with my kiddos since my smallest one has decided that it has to snow for Christmas.

What started out as a quick fix turned into a great idea. She loved her seat so much that she has now decided that her table has look cool too so being the smarty pants that she is, she tore her table!
