by Editors of Peapods.com

by Contributors to Amazon.com
Our AssessmentAmazon.com is one of a parent's best resources for real-world reviews of diapers. Reviews are often quite detailed and even-handed. Cloth diapers tend to have fewer reviews than disposables. Prospective buyers should read carefully, since reviewers sometimes wrongly fault a product for bad experiences with a seller or shipping. Readers should also beware of very old reviews, which might discuss an older version of a product that has been updated.
by Contributors to Viewpoints.com
Our AssessmentReviews on Viewpoints.com are sometimes almost as detailed as those on Amazon.com. The website also has every reviewer rate diapers' ease of use, leak prevention, comfort and absorbency on a 5-point scale -- handy for parents who want to make a decision without wading through hundreds of reviews.

by Contributors to DiaperPin.com

It takes into account a diaper's average customer rating as well as a weighted average of positive reviews for each diaper. Reviews used in the rankings are limited to the past three years.
by Contributors to Buzzillions.com
Our AssessmentBuzzillions.com is another helpful owner review product site, and sometimes has more reviews for a particular product than Amazon.com. Reviews are not quite as detailed, but a helpful feature tallies each listed pro and con so prospective buyers don't have to comb through every review quite as thoroughly. The site includes reviews from BabiesRUs.com.
