Huggies is a well known and popular brand name for disposable diapers distributed through Kimberly-Clark. K-C sells a number of different diapers, but Huggies remains to be the brand name for the traditional diaper for babies.
Some other lines from Huggies include ‘Pull-Ups’ for toddlers, ‘GoodNites’ for nighttime protection for older kids, and ‘Little Swimmers’- a disposable diaper for swimming. Huggies were first introduced to the public in 1978, but underwent testing starting in 1968. Huggies is regularly competing with Pampers for the top spot for the sale of diapers.
The History of Huggies
Kimberly-Clark was launched in 1872 as a paper company, but quickly grew to be a supplier of a variety of consumer products. The company tried multiple times to bring a diaper company under their wing, but failed a couple times with brands that just did not meet customer’s needs or satisfaction.
In 1978, K-C began producing Huggies diapers, hoping to become a popular choice for parents that want affordable diapers. The diapers came in a variety of sizes and fit snugly around babies with elastic at the legs to help stop leaks from occurring. They were easy to use due to the disposable nature and many customers began flocking to K-C for Huggies.
In 1985, Huggies took leadership and were able to develop and produce different lines of diapers. The Huggies brand is now available in 80 countries all over the world and has remained to be the very best selling diaper brands in America since 1993.
Popular Products Distributed by Huggies
While many people think of diapers for young infants when it comes to Huggies, there are actually a number of lines that cater to children of different ages. The sizes vary greatly; N being for newborns up to 10 lbs, size 1 fitting infants weighing 8-14 lbs, and the largest size being 6 for toddlers 35+ lbs.
GoodNites are also available at larger sizes for pre-teens, teens, and autistic children. They are available in sizes S/M, L/XL. There are many different lines which Huggies has developed for unique reasons. The first being Little Snugglers Diapers, designed for newborn babies with some featuring Winnie the Pooh and Friends. They come in sizes Preemies, Newborn, 1, and 2.
After Little Snugglers, comes Little Movers for infants that are quickly growing in size. Next is Snug & Dry Diapers which helps protect even more against leakage. Overnites are extra absorbent to help against nighttime leaks. The last line introduced is Pure & Natural Diapers, introduced in 2009 and designed to be much more environmentally friendly diaper.
Checking out Retailers for Huggies
A big concern for customers is determining where to purchase Huggies for their child. While Huggies doesn’t have any retailers specifically for their products, their diapers are available at a wide array of retailers. You can find diapers from places such as Babys R Us, Target, Walmart, and an array of different stores. Huggies diapers can also be purchased online for even more convenience when trying to restock.
Looking out for Sales
Many people are interested in saving money on Huggies diapers, but are unsure of how to bring down the cost. A lot of people choose to look out for any sales that a retailer may be offering. Occasionally, a retailer will discount a certain line or size of Huggies to help make room for more diapers that are coming in.
Taking the time to look into the different stores can help a customer a lot when finding good prices and diapers for lower than they had originally been expecting. Sales can happen at random, so it is a good idea to be patient and wait for a retailer to offer discounted Huggies before going ahead and stocking up.
Finding Even More Huggies Discounts
Using coupons to purchase Huggies at a lower price is a great way for a parent to save money on diapers for their child. Many coupons for Huggies are available through coupon inserts in newspapers and supermarkets as well.
While these can help save money, it is not always consistent, meaning that an individual might have to spend more than they expected some weeks when they go ahead and replenish their supply. This is one of the reasons so many people are looking into the rewards program that Huggies has developed.
Customers can sign up for ‘Enjoy the Ride Rewards’ and begin getting discounts and free items in return for staying local to the brand. After purchasing diapers, an individual can enter in the code on the package and begin gaining points.
Not only does this help them save money on diapers, it also places them into Instant Win Games and Sweepstakes as well. The different rewards can help a customer get a lot of savings, while gaining Huggies some loyal customers.
