Why I Like Huggies

I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Mom Central for Huggies and Target. I received product samples to facilitate my review as well as a promotional item to thank me for my participation.

I buy a LOT of diapers.  For a year I had three kids in diapers.  Thankfully now it's "only" two, but that's still a lot of diapers.  One thing I've found in the last 7+ years is that I can depend on Huggies.  The Snug and Dry diapers have a SureFit* design for up to 12 hours of wear with a flexible waistband for extra comfort.  And they don't have that weird chemical fragrance scent associated with a lot of other brands.

I don't usually buy my diapers at Target, but considering my local warehouse membership store just stopped carrying the Snug and Dry diapers it was good timing to check out a new place.  

Pay careful attention to the price per diaper when you shop.  I discovered that buying the medium size box was actually cheaper than buying the large box.  So naturally I bought two (and had to ask a clerk to find the second one in the back).  When I got up to the register they also handed me a $10 gift card because I bought two.  Target often runs this promotion, but it's usually marked on the shelf.  This time it wasn't, but keep an eye out for it and you can get an even better price, actually comparable to the warehouse store.

The other thing I like about Huggies are the Natural Care Wipes.  Once again something I normally buy in bulk.  Wipes are great for multiple uses beyond just cleaning baby's soft skin.  Hand washing, wiping up spills, cleaning just about anything in the car when we're on a road trip.  I've even used them to wipe out my smartphone case when it got wine spilled on it at a wedding this summer.

I love that the Natural Care wipes don't have a strong smell (although the ones in store seem to have more smell than the warehouse store Huggies wipes) and are thick enough to use just one or two on a big job (yet once again the warehouse version is much stronger).

Apparently everyone else was on a wipes run too because the shelves at my Target were looking a little bare this week.  This could be a problem, especially if they are completely out of what you need "right now"!

So you can see that I have four kids and it's not always convenient to run out for diapers when you need them.  Target is launching a new subscription service for automatic shipments of diapers, wipes, and other household items that you might buy on a recurring basis. 

I usually stock up in advance because not even a subscription could help me if my girls have a bad week that requires a lot of diapers!  But I can definitely see how this would come in handy, particularly for things that I don't buy on a bi-weekly basis and might forget about the next time I made a Target run.  Bathroom cleaner anyone?

Check out Huggies on Facebook or Twitter and get your own Target coupon for the next time you need diapers. (Shh, I forgot to use that coupon, would have made my diapers even cheaper!  Oops, guess that's what happens when you're a busy mom!)

What kind of diapers and wipes do you use?  How do you like them?  Have you tried various brands?  Would you give Huggies a try if you haven't before? 


  1. We always bought the Huggies naturals wipes at Costco too, bought whatever diaper was on sale though. For something that just holds "waste" they sure are expensive

  2. It's been a while since my kiddos have been in diapers, but I love your tip about paying attention to the price per diaper. We did a mix of cloth diapers and disposable diapers for both kids. I remember being surprised at how the smaller boxes were actually cheaper sometimes than the larger ones!
