When it comes to diapers, parents quickly discover that one size does not fit all. Humans have been using diapers of one sort or another for centuries, but it was only in the late 1940s and early 1950s that several mothers independently invented early versions of what we now know as disposable nappies. While cloth diapers are still in use and praised as an eco-friendlier option, most people opt for the convenience of a single-use product.
ChickAdvisor members praise Pampers diapers for everyday but reach for Huggies Little Swimmers at pool time. Other major brands in the doodoo-disposal industry include Luvs and Teddy's Choice (available at Real Canadian Superstore/Extra Foods).
