20 best baby diapers in Singapore 2020, with price comparison

Updated: Nov 9

Disposable baby diapers are an inescapable (and costly) part of parenthood. While there are admirable and environmentally-conscious parents who use reusable diapers, for most other parents (including ourselves) in Singapore, disposable diapers are a must-have for both baby girl and boy (until at least your child is potty-trained).


With so many baby diaper brands out there, it can get overwhelming for both first-time parents and those looking to switch brands. Essentially it comes down to comfort, absorptive capacity, skin sensitivity of baby, and cost.


In this post we give our picks on the 20 best baby diaper tapes in Singapore. At the end, based on the prices from all the merchants** here at loviya.com, we also provide a detailed price comparison of these 20 diaper tapes across different sizes. Hopefully these will help to make your selection much easier.

Best baby diapers in Singapore (in no particular order)


1. Bambo Nature

Produced by a family business in Denmark, Bambo Nature diapers are made using sustainable, eco-friendly processes. The diapers come with an absorbent core and three-layer design to ensure your child stay dry and clean, even through the night. In addition, the wetness indicator tells you when it’s time for a diaper change.

Arguably their biggest selling point is their label as a “green diaper”, with eco-friendly manufacturing processes and how it’s safe for your child. The company goes to great lengths to produce the diapers with as few chemicals and additives as possible, and Bambo Nature was the first baby diaper brand in the world certified with the Nordic Ecolabel. The back and inner linings of the diapers are made from bamboo, and the diapers are free of fragrances, parabens, chlorine, latex, PVC and many other potentially harmful chemicals.

Available in sizes Newborn to XL.

2. Drypers Touch

A more premium version compared to Drypers Wee Wee Dry, Drypers Touch diapers are developed using Pro Skin Technology. With an embossed soft layer and absorbent core, it can hold urine effectively and remain dry to the touch even after 12 hours, helping to prevent diaper rash. Parents have also commented that it feels more cottony and softer compared to Wee Wee Dry. For newborn size, it even comes with a special design to prevent rubbing against the newborn’s navel. It will be able to fit snugly to your child with the soft elastic tape at the back. One downside, though, is that it tends to get pretty heavy and thick with all the urine.


Available in sizes Newborn to XXL.


3. Drypers Wee Wee Dry

The new and improved Drypers Wee Wee Dry comes with a Singapore-exclusive version. With the SpeedyDRY Layer™, the new Drypers Wee Wee Dry helps keep your child clean and dry through rapid absorption. Even for poo, its Stool Lock System™ draws and locks it in, keeping your child’s skin dry.


Another new feature is the TummyFit Guide™, which makes diaper changing easier by guiding the tape to the ideal position (Best Fit or Good Fit), to ensure a good fit for your child for comfort and leakage prevention. This also serves as a sizing indicator to tell parents whether the current size is a good fit or it’s time to change to another size.


Similar to Drypers Touch, the Wee Wee Dry series is also designed to minimize contact and friction with a newborn’s navel. All in all, it’s an ideal diaper for daytime use.


Available in sizes Newborn to XXL.


4. Drypers Skinature

The latest Drypers range, Drypers Skinature is developed with Derma-Care Technology™, combining soft absorbent materials and a 3D-embossed top layer to absorb and distribute urine quickly and effectively. In particular, the 3D-embossed top layer is designed with deep air pockets to allow for more space, and hence airflow and breathability, between the diaper and your child’s skin. With its higher absorptive capacity, it’s definitely better for overnight use compared to Wee Wee Dry.


Another bonus is the elastic waistband which is 6x more stretchable than other diapers. This allows your child to stay in his/her diaper size for longer even as he/she grows, allowing you to save on some $$ upgrading to a larger size until it’s really necessary!

Drypers Skinature also tries to go down the eco-friendly and healthy path for your child. Not only is it fragrance and chlorine-free, but it’s also free from the EU26 Allergens.

Available in sizes Newborn to XL.

5. Goo.N Japan Version

Together with Merries and MamyPoko, Goo.N is one of the most popular Japanese diaper brands in Singapore. While not as readily available here, especially at baby fairs, Goo.N Japan Version (JV) diapers still boast superior softness, design and absorptive capacity, helping to keep your child’s skin dry and prevent diaper rash. The inner texture is infused with Vitamin E and comes in a unique 3D shape to reduce direct skin contact, while the embossed top layer and outer mesh quickly draws and locks urine away.


The elastic band and grip tape also allow the diaper to fit nicely around your child’s waist, helping to prevent leakage even as your child moves around. Even so, the durable grip tape is still soft enough not to scratch your child’s thigh.


While they can feel rather thick, Goo.N JV diapers are without doubt a long-lasting choice suitable for overnight use. What’s more, they even come with a deodorizing function, similar to the more specialized Goo.N Aromagic Pants.


Available in sizes Newborn to XL.

6. Huggies Gold

Huggies Gold diapers are clinically proven to prevent diaper rash, and their soft absorbent pad can hold urine for up to 12 hours. They not only provide 5-layer protection for your child’s skin through their Poo Away Liner pulling and locking away pee and poo, they are also made of hypoallergenic and pH-balanced material. As extra nourishment for your child’s skin, they also contain Vitamin E, aloe vera and chamomile.

The wetness indicator clearly tells parents when it’s time for a diaper change, with change of color from yellow to blue.

Though the cutting may be a little small, the soft stretchy tape allows you to adjust the fit based on your child’s size.

Available in sizes Newborn to XL.

7. Huggies Platinum Naturemade

Major paediatric hospitals in Singapore have used Huggies Platinum diapers for almost 10 years. Huggies Platinum is also the only major diaper series in Singapore to carry Justborn size for premature babies, though its availability is also limited nowadays.

The latest series in the Huggies family, Huggies Platinum Naturemade represents an effort by Huggies to develop more eco-friendly diapers, as well as provide your child with more benefits of Mother Nature, by using carefully selected natural materials. The lining material is made of natural fibre 100% sourced from Europe and contains Vitamin E from wheat germ oil. Moreover, harmful chemicals such as chlorine, heavy metals, dioxin and others are a strict no-no for this diaper.

All these do not come at the expense of the other important aspects for a diaper. The ZeroFeelTM technology, with 5mm thin material and strong 12-hour absorbency, helps your child to stay comfortable and dry for long periods.

Available in sizes Newborn to XL.

8. Huggies Silver

Huggies Silver diapers provides your child with dryness and leakage protection through the Rapid Absorb System, which has 1000 microholes to quickly absorb urine for up to 10 hours. Furthermore, the seams at the thigh area provide extra protection against leakage. The stretchable soft waistband and good breathability helps keep your child comfy, dry and happy, day and night.


As with other Huggies series, Huggies Silver diapers have been clinically proven to prevent diaper rash.


Available in sizes M to XXL.

9. Chikool Air

First launched in China in 2011, the Chikool diaper series has since become one of the most popular diapers in China, with the parent company being the largest exporter and manufacturer of baby diapers in China.

Chikool Air diapers boasts a unique U-shaped design, together with a breathable, soft outer cover with micro holes to expel the dampness from your child’s skin. Despite measuring just 0.2cm thin, it has a dual absorbent core of a transient absorption layer and a wetness retention layer, to quickly pull away and lock in urine. This, together with 3D dual side leak guards, helps provides parents with a fuss-free diapering experience.


Available in sizes S to XXL.

10. Merries

Merries is one of the most well-known and popular diaper brands in Singapore, with its diapers backed by continuous skin research. Compared to older versions, the new Merries diapers improves breathability by 40%, thanks to the new triple layer air through system allowing moisture and stuffiness to escape through the inner wavy surface, the middle absorbent layer and the outer breathable layer. The inner wavy surface, other than reducing contact with your child’s skin by half compared to older versions, also traps pee and poo to prevent them from dispersing, to allow for rapid absorption by the absorbent layer. All these, as you can imagine, make Merries diapers a leading choice for diaper rash prevention.


With side and back gathers to prevent leakage and the polymer material being able to absorb up to 200 – 300x of fluid relative to its weight, Merries diapers is one of the most reliable diapers for long-lasting or overnight use.


The Flexi-fit “W” shape also accommodates your child’s contours and movement without causing abrasions or red marks.


Available in sizes Newborn to XL.

11. Pampers Baby Dry

With Pampers being the very first disposable diaper series invented in 1950, it’s no wonder to many, it is synonymous with diapers, with “Pampers” and “diapers” used interchangeably.


Pampers Baby Dry was launched in 2014, and the ones sold in Singapore are made in Japan. One of the key pluses is its comfort factor, with very soft inner fabric and skin-friendly tape. That said, the tape adhesive is strong enough to prevent your child from unfastening the diaper by him/herself. Being thinner than other diapers, it also doesn’t come across as too bulky.


With the new Magic Gel™, it absorbs, distributes and locks in up to 7 wettings over a 12-hour period to provide parents with a peace of mind, especially overnight. The top-sheet also contains aloe vera to further soothe your child’s skin, together with all-round breathability.


Available in sizes Newborn to XXL.

12. Pampers Premium Care

Similar to Pampers Baby Dry, Pampers Premum Care diapers are made in Japan and one of the favourite diaper series in Japanese paediatric hospitals. The Absorb-Away Layer quicky draws away pee and runny poo, and the Magic Gel Channels then come in for even distribution. Compared to normal cotton, the Magic Gel can absorb 30x of its weight, and is developed using only natural materials.


While the waist cutting is on the high side to prevent leakage, the super soft material, skin-friendly lotion layer and breathable micropores more than make up for it and helps to provide your child with a high level of comfort and gentleness. The tapes, which are more stretchy than other diapers, also provide your child with a snug and fitting wrap to move freely and reduce the risk of the diaper coming loose.


Available in sizes Newborn to L.

13. PeeKaPoo

A new player to the disposable baby diaper scene in Singapore in 2018, PeeKaPoo diapers have nevertheless gained a loyal following, with more than 18,000 customers within its first year of launch.


Touted as the first 3rd Generation diapers in Asia, the key feature of PeeKaPoo diapers is the Permasorp Core with superior absorbency through 12 hours. Even though the material is thinner than other diapers, the Permasorp Core can absorb faster and lock in more urine while staying dry to the skin. For better breathability and durability, cotton is used as the main material instead of wood pulp, which can tend to breed bacteria. This is not only good for diaper rash prevention, but can also prevent the Permasorp Core from splitting apart and causing leakage.


In addition, barrier cuffs at the sides help prevent side leakage, and the extended diaper length helps prevent waistline leakage, especially if your child is lying chest down.


The broad and flexible waistband provides a comfortable fit for your child while allowing freedom of movement.


Available in sizes Newborn to XL.

14. Rascal + Friends

Rascal +Friends is a New Zealand brand that’s getting increasingly popular in Singapore, even though availability is currently rather limited with most of the diapers sold through Redmart.


The non-woven, 3D raised core absorbent layer provides a large area for drawing in and dispersing urine, while its unique deep pocketed design and high back waistband help to reduce the likelihood of overflow or leakage. All these for your child’s good night sleep!


Unlike the older version which did not come with a wetness indicator due to the brand’s no-dye policy, the new version does have such an indicator, now certified by OEKO-TEX to be free of harmful substances. Nevertheless, Rascal +Friends diapers are still one of the most eco-friendly and “healthy” diapers around, containing no chlorine, bleach, latex, lotions, fragrance and formaldehyde, and using only water-based inks for production. The diapers are even the first worldwide to be BioChecked Non Glyphosate certified to be free of herbicides.


The diapers also come with a breathable backsheet and soft leg cuffs that don’t cut into your child’s skin.

Available in sizes Newborn to M.

15. MamyPoko Air Fit

Voted No. 1 diaper choice by mothers in Japan for 3 consecutive years, MamyPoko Air Fit is the world’s first 3D curve fit diaper which hugs your child’s waistline gently to help prevent leakage, based on patented technology. The soft stretchable tape is made from non-woven fabric, with less pressure on your child’s tummy area. The inner lining is made of microfibre, with parents saying how it feels softer and does not leave any marks on baby’s skin even after a full day or night.


The breathable dry cover also comes with all-round air flow function, for effective air circulation through multiple angles. Many mummies have raved about how their child do not have a single episode of diaper rash or allergic reaction after wearing it, even for those with sensitive skin.


MamyPoko Air Fit also boasts excellent absorbency lasting 12 hours!


Available in sizes Newborn to XL.


16. MamyPoko Extra Dry

Rebranded as just MamyPoko Extra Dry from the previous Extra Dry Skin, it has retained and improved on what many loved about this diaper series.


The wavy top sheet that quickly absorbs urine and loose stool for up to 12 hours is combined with all-round air flow to reduce worries on diaper rash and dampness.


The waist area is made of ultra-fine non-woven material to reduce irritation on your child’s skin. For the Newborn and Small sizes, this series also takes special care of your little one, by using organic cotton for extra softness and a special notched waistline design to protect your baby’s navel.


Nevertheless, it can still feel quite bulky and protrudes out, especially if your child is wearing tight-fitting clothes.


Available in sizes Newborn to XXL.

17. PetPet

A leading diaper brand in Malaysia, PetPet diapers now come in a new improved series with better absorption and leakage protection.


The new 100% BluDry Zone maximizes urine absorption and distribution throughout the diaper to help keep your child’s skin dry for up to 10 hours. This time round, it has also paid special attention to leakage protection, with the extra long front and back design, extra wide waistband 15% higher leakguards providing all-round protection to help ensure you won’t have a mess to clean up.


Other features include improved breathability, and a useful sizing guide of “1”, “2” and “3” at the waist area to tell parents when it is time to upgrade to the next size for your child. A simple but effective way to tell when the diaper size may be getting a little uncomfortable for your child!

18. Applecrumby

Launched in 2012, Applecrumby is a Malaysian diaper brand which is 100% free from chlorine, phthalates, heavy metals, asbestos and fragrance. Its eco-conscious focus is also reflected in the diversity of its supply chain, with chlorine-free pulp from Finland, latex and toxic-free adhesive from Germany, as well as non-toxic absorbent polymer and back sheets from Korea.


Among other things, their 7-layer diaper technology comprises a top sheet made of dye-free, non-woven cotton, a triple-layer surge to distribute and lock in wetness to prevent backflow, as well as an absorbent core consisting of chlorine-free pulp and absorbent polymer. All these come together to help your child stay dry, clean, and diaper rash-free for up to 12 hours, with the diaper able to hold over 30x its weight in liquid. The high waist design and 15mm leak guards also help to prevent blowouts and leakages.

Bosomi Premium Real Cotton is a leading diaper brand from Korea first established in 1994. Compared to the previous version, the new Bosomi Premium Real Cotton diapers feature 100% USA cotton for the inner cover for a softer, fluffier texture. Though the cutting is smaller than other diaper brands such as Merries, the ultra slim fit design and double stretching cotton band still ensure that it fits comfortably for your child.


The 3-step absorption process provides rapid absorption and reduces smudges for up to 12 hours, while the safety guard and double-up leg band help to prevent leakage. Other than the 360-degree Air Cover which promotes air circulation and emits residual humidity, the diaper is also infused with natural lavender oil to soothe your child’s skin and keep it smelling fresh.


Available in sizes Newborn to XL.

Last but certainly not least, we have Genki Premium Soft diapers, another popular diaper brand from Japan. “Genki” loosely translates to being happy, healthy and energetic, and the Genki brand used to be called Do Re Mi.


While the Genki Premium Soft series is thicker than the previous version, the 3D ultra absorbent core, together with the dot-and-wave textured inner layer, helps to provide reliable absorbency for up to 12 hours, with different absorption processes for pee and poo.


Parents need not worry about leakage with the soft yet powerful side and back leak guards, with the elastic waistband providing a comfort fit for your child. Nor worry about diaper rash, with the 100% breathable outer cover.

Baby diaper price comparison in Singapore


Despite the different benefits and characteristics of each diaper, for many parents the price remains a major factor. The most common ways of calculating diaper price are by price per pack or price per piece, but this by itself is not sufficient to calculate the true cost of your diaper choice. Additional factors such as the poo frequency of your child and suitability/quality of the diaper also need to be considered.


For example, a more expensive diaper by price per piece may, in fact, turn out to be cheaper over a 24-hour cycle if it can last longer, or causes less/no diaper rash, such that it does not need to be changed so often, as compared to a cheaper price-per-piece diaper. Or, if your child has very high poo frequency such that it’s necessary to change diapers often, you may want to consider a cheaper price-per-piece option.


Ultimately it comes down to the specific, unique diapering circumstances of your child, and your budget. Nevertheless, we hope the price comparison table below would serve as useful reference for you in assessing the many different diaper brands out there.


NB: All the prices below are the lowest prices from loviya.com for the respective diaper, with the exception of Huggies Platinum Naturemade, Drypers Skinature, Rascal + Friends and Bosomi Premium Real Cotton (these 4 series are currently not yet in Loviya but we will be adding them very soon!)

There you have it! We hope this baby diaper guide will help you compare between the different diapers out there and find the most suitable one for your bundle of joy!
