Most of the parents are still wondering to find out the differences between the two. It is important to pick the right diaper’s brand for your baby. In this article, we will find out the differences between the absorbency of both diapers. 

Huggies Product Lines

When you have decided to purchase Huggies diapers you will find out lots of options. There are six different diapers that Huggies are selling. So let’s have a look at all these products. 

Huggies Diapers

  • Little Snugglers
  • It is designed for newborn infants. It is an ideal choice for newborns (up to 10lbs) and for preemies (up to 6 lbs). It is the best diaper in the market and offers an umbilical cord. It stops the diaper from rubbing and prevents the baby’s skin from infection. You will find out the wetness indicator on the front of the diaper and the interior contain a stay-dry and soft liner. 

  • Little Movers
  • It is clear by the name. It is for those who have outgrown snugglers and started to move. Huggies diapers offer SnugFit waistband that helps to proper fit active babies. They also offer leak lock technology that stops leakage before happening. 

  • Snug & Dry Diapers
  • These diapers offer leak lock feature that helps to absorb moisture and prevents leakage. Its SungFit waistband helps to prevent leaks for up to 12 hours. 

  • Overnight Diapers
  • A diaper change at night can be the most difficult thing. To keep bed sheets dry parents mostly pick overnight diapers. These diapers offer extra layers of absorbency so these diapers are thicker than the normal diapers. These diapers ensure your baby can sleep all night without a diaper change. 

  • Pull-Ups
  • It is an ideal choice when your child is getting potty trained. It will prevent accidents and your kid will have the freedom to use the toilet. There will be graphics on the front side of the diaper. When the diapers are wet the graphics will disappear. For potty training, kids can easily take it on and off. There are protection zones for both the girls and boys. Pull-Ups come in different sizes from 2T to 5T. 

    Pampers Product Lines 

    Like Huggies, pampers also offers various different products. Many products can be compared to those Huggies products. 


  • Swaddlers
  • It is an ideal choice for young babies and mostly used in the hospitals of the United States. These diapers are offered in XS (Up to 4 lbs) and preemie (up to 6 lbs). For delicate and sensitive skin it is claimed to be the softest diaper in the market. It helps to keep the baby’s skin fresh and dry. On the front side of diapers, there is a color-changing wetness indicator. 

  • Baby Dry
  • This product is effective for newborns, infants, and toddlers. These diapers offer 12 hours of leak protection as they contain three layers of absorbency. Pampers company does not offer overnight diapers, so the baby dry diapers are the best choice for night use. Sides of the diapers are snug and stretchy. 

  • Cruisers
  • These diapers are ideal for infants that are on the go. Once your baby starts to crawl and move cruisers become a handy choice. It will allow your baby to move easily. These diapers are lightweight so would not cause any issue for your kids while playing. 

  • Easy Ups
  • It is ideal for those toddlers who are getting potty trained. You can remove these pants like underwear or you can even tear off in case of accidents or emergency. On the front side, there is an indicator that will let parents know about the accident. They are available in different sizes from 2T to 5T. 

  • Underjams
  • These diapers are bedwetting products. It is ideal for kids up to 85 lbs. It is the best choice for those kids who are potty trained but struggle with their night potty routine. These are similar to easy ups but offer more absorbency than the easy ups. 

    What about the absorbency factor?

    The most important factor that predicts the success of any disposable diaper is the absorbency rate. Parents are using diapers to prevent leakage issues and keep their homes and clothes clean. Diapers with leakage issues have no value. Most of the diaper brands are using Super Absorbent Polymer called SAP. SAP has the ability to absorb 800 times than its own weight. 

    Both the brands will absorb the urine of your baby. But when it comes to comparison Pampers are the winners. They offer more absorbency than Huggies. Different tests have been performed that show that Huggies failed to score when it comes to absorbency. But one thing is for sure both the diapers are an ideal choice for your kids. Using Pampers the chances of rashes are fewer. 



    You can use easy ups and pull-ups for toddlers who are active and for potty training.
