As moms, we all want to take the very best care possible of our babies. We want to buy the best products available to pamper and comfort our children.
I’ll admit that when I had my first baby, I thought that meant only spending top dollar for the most expensive name-brand products. But now that I’ve had three babies, I understand that isn’t necessary.
After trying lots of different products over the years, I’ve realized that there are some great baby products available that are every bit as effective as the national brands, but for a much lower price – like Dollar General baby products.
To show you why I say that, I wanted to show comparisons of some of my favorite Dollar General baby products with a national brand version.
Check out the comparisons between Dollar General Baby and National Brand baby products:
Baby wipe size and thickness:
The wipes are the exact same size and are very similar in feel and softness.
Baby Wipes strength after scrubbing carpet 10 times:
Both wipes held up better than I thought they would. I was surprised to see that the first rip/pick was starting in the National Brand wipe.
Baby Powder texture and scent
Obviously, you’ll have to take my word on the scent, but it has the same light, pleasant baby powder scent I’m familiar with. Both powders felt silky and soft on my skin. I couldn’t tell any difference at all between the two brands.
Baby Diapers – absorbency and softness
The diapers both felt soft and had soft, flexible areas around the legs for a comfortable fit. To test absorbency, I poured 2 tablespoons of green water onto each diaper and observed. The water in both diapers ran downhill a little before beginning to soak in. As you can see in the picture, the green water in the national brand is still beading and sitting on top of the diaper several minutes after I poured it. It did eventually all soak in, but I was surprised that it took longer than the Dollar General brand, which soaked in quickly.
All of the Dollar General products performed just as well, if not better, than the national brand products! With the difference in prices, it just doesn’t make sense to spend only money on for the name.
