    Helped my girlfriend's sister with an experiment on my son's diapers tonight checking the absorbency. Liquid used was red kool-aid a tablespoon at a time. Diapers used were Huggies, Pampers, and Parent's Choice.

    Parent's Choice being the cheap brand I figured it would lose. Huggies and Pampers are about the same price, so I figured one would be great and the other not so great.

    On to the results.

    First leaks appeared:

    Huggies - 10 tablespoons
    Pampers - 13 tablespoons
    Parent's Choice - 18 tablespoons.

    The Parent's Choice brand feels like cardboard to me and doesn't seem to be as comfortable, but it didn't leak near as fast. Now if a parent actually lets their child sit in that much urine, that's another topic. But was useful information as I have a 8 month old son. Just thought I'd share.

    Never heard of 'Parent's Choice' nappies, are they an American brand? We use Pampers. We tried Huggies because we got a free pack but they just didn't fit right and leaked. Pampers all the way.

    On another note for any new parents. Breast feed for as long as possible. Breast fed nappies do not smell! As soon as you move onto formula milk expect a stinky house.

    Parent's choice is a generic brand in America. We tried them on our son and he broke out in a rash, probly from the irritating cardboard feel.

    I've found that it is far more important how the diaper fits the child than how much it will hold. We used Pampers with my son and they worked well, but they don't fit my daughter well. We have to use Luvs with her, anything else will leak because of the way the elastic fits around her legs.

    That red moderator banner color sure plays off your avatar colors well, OTD.

    Huggies or pampers for me!(well my daughter actually lol) screw the rest!

    I tried a few home brand and always came back to those 2.
    Obviously my girlfriend is alway looking up the flyers to get them in special.
    They come often very cheap for the big box at Maxi and co.
