To think the new Huggies Pure wipes are pretty rubbish compared to the old ones?

Just that...noticed the pack cover had changed, as had the number of wipes (56 vs 64) and the wipes themselves are very different, the liquid is full of froth and suds. The ingredients have changed considerably. I use about a pack a day so this is distressing me Grin

Oh no! I love these and need to buy more at the weekend.

You use a pack a day? Do to have newborn quads!?



JessicaRebeccaRabbit · 19/06/2015 18:41

:) haha. No, have two small ones, but also use them to clean the table, high chair, around the sink, anything at all! I have bought up a jumbo box of old ones, but seeing them less and less now...the new packs are more peach coloured than yellow, and smaller of course, but funnily enough same price.

YANBU, I just bought the new style ones & I'm not impressed!


DuchessofNorks · 19/06/2015 18:51

You're not wrong.

I have tried the huggies ones too, and they just fall apart!


DuchessofNorks · 19/06/2015 18:58

Whoots, I meant pampers version Blush


ShelaghTurner · 19/06/2015 20:20

Yes, they drive up the wall! Wiping faces with them leaves a trail of bubbles and I can't get one out of the packet without ripping a hole in it.


AmandaTanen · 19/06/2015 20:23

They are awful, my local lidl has some stock of the old ones on sale for 90p.

Reasons the UK is in landfill crisis: people using disposable baby wipes when a damp cloth would be perfectly adequate.

Yep they're horrible. Tesco ones for us.


AntiHop · 19/06/2015 20:49

A pack a day Shock why don't you use a damp cloth? Then you're sending less rubbish to landfill.

I use reuseable wipes from the £1 shop, get six in a pack, I bought blue for bum, pink for face and green for general wiping. So much easier and I know there are no chemicals etc.


Ummmmgogo · 19/06/2015 20:56

I hate the new huggies wipes they left soap on my babies skin. Can anyone recommend some good disposable wipes please? I have tried pampers and johnsons and I hated them even more than huggies!


LastOneDancing · 19/06/2015 21:01

I like the aldi wipes better than any others I've tried - huggies are vile and leave bits.

But yes, I'd get some cheap microfibre cloths for wiping down babies and highchairs! You'll save a fortune and they do a much better job IME.


TwiggyHeart · 19/06/2015 21:04

Essential Waitrose are cheap and good!


bonbonpixie · 19/06/2015 21:28

Water Wipes are good.


Gwenci · 19/06/2015 21:52

YA definitely NBU! I hate the new ones!! My DD squeezed soapy liquid all over the floor when she pulled loads out of the pack to wipe her doll with.

Though quite how my 21 month DD manages to get them out of the pack intact when I can't get the bloody things out whole is beyond me!

I miss the old wipes.

And I can't believe I just wrote that sentence in all seriousness. I need to get out more.


Pepperonipeteczar · 19/06/2015 22:02

I love the asda own fragranced ones in the polka dot packaging


dillite · 19/06/2015 22:03

I used to love Nature's whatever Natty something bio-degradable ones, when I still used wipes and nappies. Boots sell them. Not too soapy, never irritated my or my daughter's skin, no horrible perfume smell. Their nappies were the best as well.


SpendSpendSpend · 19/06/2015 22:06

Oh bloody hell i ve just bought 12 packs of the new design ones.

Thanks, glad I am not alone in my disappointment! Yep I do use cloths too, but travel loads so not too handy...anyhow had really just wanted to see if anyone else had noticed a difference so that has cleared it up.

Sobs. Just got a box of 12 from ocado and hadn't noticed. May be overinvested in wipes. Need to get out more.Grin


MissJoMarch · 19/06/2015 22:20

Aldi's sensative ones are AMAZING. Better than old Huggies and don't flare my daughters eczema


mumofboyo · 19/06/2015 22:24

Yanbu. The 1st thing I noticed was the awful smell - like sour milk Shock
They were the only wipes I'd found that didn't worsen ds' eczema and am now back onto trying other brands, pack by pack. The best so far are Tesco own brand but they're very thin and very, very wet.
