they were ok but needed changing quite a bit - dont hold all that much wee! No good for overnight!!! HTH

A friend of mine swore by them but I have never had the nerve to buy them because I once bought some cheapo nappies and couldn't use them at all - a complete waste of money.

Hmm think i'll stick to their normal ones then. Thanks for the help.

We used them when dd was insisting on a nappy for poos, and they were OK for that, but they felt rougher than the more expensive ones, and I don't know how comfortable they would have been for wearing longer than that. Although at that price it might be worth getting a pack just to try them and see how you find them.

There's still a packet of nappies sitting here with your name on it, btw ...

tried them for DD when she was 3 weeks old and it was a complete disaster : they wouldn't hold poo and wee and we had to change her much more often. She hated them and so did I !

No but the ones in the purple coloured packet are quite good. About £6 for a large pack (amount in pack depends on size of nappy used.)

I use them as night time nappies for dst, 3 1/2 before they were fully toilet trained though I used mainly pampers because I signed up on their website and got loads of vouchers sent over a period of two 1/2 years (for usually £2 off per pack.) Worth doing that if you need to save money.

I use the purple ones which are £3.50ish instead of Pampers £5.65ish.

Been using them for about 4 months now and they are very good imo. DS is 19 months now so not sure on how they are with little ones though

tesco cheap ones are alot better than the boots cheap ones. Boots cheap nappies are a waste of money. Just thought i would let you know.

Dont know about tescos, but i use boots brand cheapies at £1.82 a pack and they are great! they even fit my huge 2 year old. They are better than pampers in my estimation. They dont have cloth like fasteners and look cheap but boy do they hold pee.

bought some tesco pullups as were cheaper than huggies. but i dont like them. too plasticky, and dont hold much pee.

Tell you what is good at Tescos though, their kettles. they are only five quid and they are fantastic!!!
