Before DD was born we had a bunch of different brands of diapers from the baby shower. Buy a variety and see what works best. Now we use Target's Up and Up because they work well and are really affordable.

depends on how the baby is built.DD fits pampers great, and Huggies, up and up, and costco horribly.
Get a few small packs, figure out which ones you like best, then sign up for amazon mom and get auto delivery of the ones you want.
pampers swaddlers are awesome due to the blue stripe, letting you know if it' wet or not.
Like everyone else said. It really depends on the baby.
With DS#1, in the beginning we used Pampers but quickly switched to Huggies because they worked better.
So far with DS#2, Pampers Swaddlers are working the best. We tried the Wal-mart generic (I think it is Parent's Choice...I can't remember right now, someone had gifted them to us) and those didn't work at all. The Huggies did not work either. I had to change his clothes twice the other day because he soaked right through the Huggies.
Ditto PP- it's trial and error.
We prefer Pampers for DS. Up & Up and Huggies give his rashes. Luvs work okay but they make a really irritating noise (I know I'm weird...).
We used Pampers Swaddlers Sensitive from newborn through size 2. At size 3, we switched to Pampers Baby Dry. The Pampers Cruisers didn't fit him well in the legs at the time. Now we use either Pampers Baby Dry or Pampers Cruisers during the day (size 4) and Huggies Overnight Size 5 at night.
So much of it is just trial and error to find what you will like.
I used to use Huggies, but for Mason I had to switch to Pampers Sensitive. He really is sensitive and those diapers made a huge difference in his diaper rash occurences.
As cheap as I am and as much as I love coupons, I've never been able to use generic diapers (with the exception of pull up kind for toddlers) or generic formula for some reason. I'm just weird that way.
