They fit really well so I don't think they are too small. I don't know what it is! LOL

I think it is weird how some diapers work well for some babies and not for others! There was no leaks yesterday! It was really really bad the one night she slept for 10 hours straight. She woke up soaking wet, all of her blankets were wet!

I'm going to see how the rest of the package goes! I do like the stretchy tabs though! Much better than before!

We have never had leaks in LUVS but Emma seeps threw the pampers i hate them(it feels moist on the outside) but we use to use them with DS and loved them for him.
Could be that they were just too small.

I LOVE the new streatchy tabs!!!Much easier fitting!!

Bummer!! The only time we had leaks with Luvs was when I tried them very early on (size 1's last fall). That was before they had the stretchy sides. Then he used to poop out the back. But since we've given them a second chance, there have been no leaks. I use Luvs during the day and put him in a Pampers overnight since he usually sleeps 12 hours and I'm hesitant to see how Luvs holds up to that.

Do you think the size could be causing the leaks? I remember you weren't sure about size 3 vs. size 4.

It amazes me how everyone is different. I LOVE the new luves. So much better with the new taps. Maddie leaked through huggies. Plus I like the price of luves better.

Have any of you Luvs users experienced leaks?????

She leaks in these things soooo bad!

Looks like it is back to Huggies!

I put on the luvs this morning and the 4s definitely fit her better than the Pampers do now...
We'll see what it looks like when I change her next...

Right now I'm a fan of the Huggies. Haven't tried the Pampers, but with the Luvs, size 3 is just too small and size 4 is too long. The Huggies size 3 are working for us.

I love my Huggies Supremes and the Huggies Overnights. Dylan is 21.4 pounds and wears a size 4.

My sister got Huggies on sale and uses them during the day, he also wears a 4 with them. To me, they don't seem to hold anything.

I just barely moved up to the huggies 4's this evening... and she has been wearing 4's pampers at grandmas house for a bit... I deffinitely like the way the huggies fit her now... I just got a sample of Luvs in the mail with the new stretchy tabs... (also the only reason I wasn't using them too) So I will be putting on one of those in the morning so I can see how they work on her, In my opinion I would go ahead andbuy the 4's it is better to have them be a little too big than soo small and then if you buy a pack of 3's and tyour LO goes into a growth spurt and is out of them in a few days then you don't have half a pack left over....

I haven't noticed Owen getting a rash from Luvs, but I wonder if maybe Sean is sensitive to whatever fragrance they add to Luvs? Its kinda strong, I think!

Owen has worn Huggies, Pampers, and Luvs. I'd say that Luvs and Pampers are comparable size-wise, and that Huggies run a bit smaller than those two. Right now he's outgrown the Huggies size 4, but is still in 4's for Pampers and Luvs with plenty of room. If Taylor is just out of the Huggies 3's, I'd say go with the Luv's 3's. We love the new Luvs with the stretchy tabs. They are great!!

I love LUVS! Julia is 18 lbs, Luvs size 3 fit great, and I can't see her growing out of them any time soon, I'd say for another 6 or more pounds. I have found them fairly true to the poundage on the box and the size three goes to 28lbs on the box.

I haven't used either in a while but back when we were in size 2, the huggies were definitely smaller so I'd go with the 4. Better to be a bit too big than too small.

I switched over to the Target diapers and we love those. Somebody gave us a bag of Pampers cruisers and I like the Target brand better. (size 3's)

I need your help!

We just ran out of all of the Huggies size 3 diapers. She has probably been wearing these for the past 6 months at least! I want to try the new Luvs with the stretch but I don't know what size is comparable. I think Huggies runs small don't they????

If I was buying Huggies again I would probably get the size 4's.

So what size in the Luvs should I get!
