What are the Ovia Family Awards?
Each year, we ask Ovia parents to nominate their best-loved products and brands and tell us why these picks made such an impact on their journey into parenthood.
We analyze thousands of votes, pieces of feedback, and thoughtful recommendations to determine which best-of-the-best, tried-and-true products are worthy of an Ovia Family Award. When you see our seal, you know what you’re buying was chosen by parents who’ve used it, trust it, and can genuinely recommend it to other growing families.
In this category, we’re giving awards for:
- Best Diaper Brand
- Best Baby Wipes
- Best Diaper Pail
- Best Diaper Bag Brand
For all our other winners, visit our Ovia Family Awards Hub.
*All products featured are independently selected. However, when you buy something through our retail links, we may earn an affiliate commission.
Best Diaper Brand: Pampers
“Pampers are amazing, I’ve tried pretty much every brand out there and they were the only ones that my son didn’t get a diaper rash from.”
One thing is for sure—all diapers are decidedly not created equal. Ovia parents had a lot to say about the importance of high-quality, affordable, leak-free diapers, and, over and over, Pampers came out on top!
As you can read in these testimonials, what stands out most about Pampers is how many parents trust these diapers over other brands.
“Hands down we have loved Pampers the best. They are soft, fit well, and we’ve had minimal accidents.”
They work consistently, which is really what you need most in a diaper. One bad leak can ruin the whole day.
Plus, the Pampers Club is a great added incentive to choose this brand of diapers. They’ve got a simple-to-use app that gives you cashback and rewards as you scan every box of diapers you buy.

Best Baby Wipes: Pampers
The same great reasons parents love Pampers diapers hold true for their wipes: consistently great performance at an affordable price.
“These wipes are great! I use Pampers Sensitive, but even when I’ve had to use the regular I’ve never had an issue with my sensitive kid!”
Shop Pampers wipesThey’re hypoallergenic with no parabens or perfumes. And as Pampers says, they’re “as mild as a washcloth and water.” They stand up to even the toughest messes without falling apart but still provide a gentle touch for sensitive skin.
“Pampers Sensitive and regular wipes are the best! Baby Poo like glue? Pampers! Baby splattered you with sweet potato? Pampers! Uh Oh – a mess in the car? Pampers! They work great and they are safe for my sensitive baby. They don’t shred and no lint.”
“Pampers Sensitive is our favorite brand. Fragrance free and mild, the right dampness, and strong texture for cleaning.”
Over and over, parents raved about how Pampers wipes are soft and gentle, yet still get the job done.
“Pampers sensitive skin wipes are the best. They are larger and softer than other wipes.”
These finalists may look familiar. The same brands that came close in our diapers category also got plenty of love for their wipes:
Best Diaper Pail: Diaper Genie
“The Diaper Genie is a must have! We love ours. Makes things so much easier and keeps the smell contained.”
Wishing for a solution to your family’s steady supply of stinky diapers? Consider it granted with the Playtex® Diaper Genie®. This diaper pail features built-in odor-controlling antimicrobial and double-air tight clamps to seal in dirty diaper odors completely.
Ovia parents loved how easy it is to contain dirty diapers in the Diaper Genie’s special bags and odor-proof lid.
“Holds a ton of diapers, very easy to change out the bags and the smell is nonexistent.”
“We use the Diaper Genie with the max fresh liners and that has made all the difference. Also, we keep separate bags for poopy diapers and they go directly outside to the trash.”
The sturdy pail can withstand the test of time (and toddlers). Dispose of diapers one-handed with the convenient foot pedal, and use the front-tilt bin and built-in bag cutter when the pail is full.
“Our diaper Genie is going through baby number 2 and it is holding up. We have had it for 3 plus years and it has been banged around a little (love toddlers). The lid still closes completely, the door-bits inside and outside still work like they should, and it’s easy to change the bags.”

Best Diaper Bag Brand: Eddie Bauer
“I looove my Eddie Bauer! It’s a neutral tone and backpack style so my hubby loves it too.”
When you venture out with your baby, a diaper bag is an absolute essential. We asked Ovia parents which bag stands out from the crowd and both moms and dads raved about Eddie Bauer’s convenient features and classic look.
With features like stroller loops, foldable changing pads, and insulated bottle holders, parents were smitten with Eddie Bauer’s on-the-go ease.
“We got the Eddie Bauer from Target and love it!”
The roomy construction and purposeful pockets were also big selling points for parents.
“I definitely loved my Eddie Bauer diaper bag. Lightweight and had tons of room and pockets.”
“I have an Eddie Bauer and Skip Hop. The Skip Hop has a bigger opening but the Eddie Bauer has more pockets to store things. Makes it easier to find.”
