Costco/Kirkland Diapers - Rebranded???

Does anyone know who Kirkland uses for their diapers? My kid does well in Huggies but will leak through pampers.

It used to be Huggies, 5-6 years ago. Not sure now.

They are 100% huggies. Most similar to little snuggliers.

I have used them for 2 boys now.

They may be made by "huggies" but definitely not the same level of quality. That said, they're not horrible, and definitely better than super el-cheapo brands.

Correct. Unless you need some right away and can't make it Costco. I will then buy a smaller pack at walmart to get me by.

Have you even taken them apart side by side? I did once do compare.

They are nearly identical in material and quality. There was one notable difference, but i can't even recall what it was now.

Yes, we have. They don't re-seal as well and the leg elastics don't seem to be designed the same. They seem equally absorbent though.

Are you sure it was a little snugglers you were comparing too? The elastics seemed the same to me on those.

Perhaps it was the "movers" compared too? They certainly have a tighter seal on the elastic, and are designed that way.

I don't remember which one it was, it was over 1.5 years ago. I just know that we tried them, they were fine, but not as good as the full Huggies/Pampers. We actually used Pampers normally since there seemed to be a lot less leaks with our boys when wearing them.

Ya probably one of the other styles. There are several, and all different in make up.

We never had good luck with pampers. Nothing but blowouts with boy #1. Never tried on boy #2. Funny how kids deal with diapers so differently.

Agreed, there doesn't seem to be a rhyme or reason to it.
