Diaper Review

When identifying the best disposable diapers, many factors come into play: Absorbency, fastener quality, fit, affordability and most importantly, resistance to leaks. While many parents swear by the more established brands such as Pampers, there are actually more affordable brands out there that are just as good, if not better, for your babies.

Here is a review of the diapers we have tried on Vera, by self-professed diaper expert Dr. Z. Daddy. We welcome feedback and reviews on other brands you have tried.



Brand: Nepia (6-12kg)
Price: 35 cents per piece
Rating: 5 out of 5 (highly recommended)
Review: Cloth-like material. Velcro-like fastener (good). Resistant to poo and pee leaks. High absorbency. Good value for money




Brand: EQ (6-12kg)
Price: 25 cents per piece
Rating: 4 out of 5 (Recommended)
Review: Cheaper version of Nepia. Plastic sticky-tape fastener (not as good). Cloth-like material not as soft as Nepia. Resistant to poo and pee leaks. High absorbency. Great value for money
Brand: Pampers New Born (<5kg)>Price: 50 cents per piece
Rating: 3 out of 5
Review: Soft cotton-like material. Good resistance to pee leaks but not poo leaks. Velcro fastener. Equipped with pee meter. Expensive since you have to change 7-8 times a day for newborns.

Brand: Pampers Baby Dry (4-8kg)
Price: 35 cents per piece
Rating: 4 out of 5
Review: Not as soft as Pampers new-born. Good Absorbency. Better resistance to poo leaks. Velcro fastener. Good value for money.


Brand: Drypers Baby Diapers (3-7kg)
Price: 20 cents per piece
Rating: 1 out of 5
Review: Poor resistance to pee and poo leaks. We stopped using after a few tries



Brand: Fitti Baby Diapers (5-11kg)
Price: 29 cents per piece
Rating: 1 out of 5
Review: Poor resistance to pee and poo leaks. We stopped using after one try.

Is Nepia a new brand?

It has been around for a few years. Relatively new compared to the other more established brands. You can get Nepia from NTUC Fairprice. For EQ, I have only seen it in Giant.

Thanks for your recommendation & samples of diapers. We have been using EQ (S size) for Matt (he's currently 4.3 kg) and we find it quite good too! =) We even bought some for our friend who has just delivered.
