What nappies do you use for your babies?

Currently using aldi normal and premium nappies for my 7 week old. I find the size 1-2 really good and also recently discovered premium ones so have been using those too. After size 2 they’re shit.. Bought a pack for my toddler and they’re absolutely rubbish. She poos out of the nappies 🤢

Using pampers pull ups for my toddler, always used pampers with her. I haven’t really tried any other brands except Lidl.

What disposable nappies do you use and like?

I've been using Tesco and Sainsbury's this time round, both really good.

For DS I used pampers (tried every other brand but not were ever as good) once he was only wearing them at night I bought Lidl’s pull ups and never had an issue. For DD I've tried Asda but she was allergic, Lidl’s leaked and again pampers keep being the best. I’m going to give Aldi’s a try but she’s only in a size 2 so that might not help you as much.

Aldi - dd is almost 2 now. No issues outside the norm

Pampers from the day one and really happy with them.

Pampers or the rascal ones from Tesco, the nappy pants as she has never kept still long enough to put a proper nappy on.
My little girl has a reaction to any other nappies we’ve tried and I really didn’t get on with reusable nappies !!
I do find sometimes it’s a false sense of good value with cheaper nappies as they need changing more frequently or they leak.

First size I used pampers. From that I used Sainsbury’s. They are as good as pampers and less price

I found the aldi ones too bulky but Sainsbury’s is a lot thinner

We used huggies until they stopped producing for the UK, can get them at costco but they're so expensive and not worth it. Changed to pampers and they were great for 3 younger ones, they are quite pricey though. Over 32wk pregnant atm and got asda's little angels nappies for when she arrives. Have used theirs occasionally before and they were fine so hoping they'll be good for this one as they're much cheaper in the long run.

@AyyX we are using Aldo and now on 4+ with no issues. I was advised when my little one started pooping out of a nappy when she was smaller, to go up a size which I did and the problem stopped. I think there can be a cross over in sizes so technically you could fit 2 sizes, I'd go for the bigger size

Skyla01 · 26/06/2021 12:03

I use a mixture of Aldi, pampers and Tesco's (alongside reusables). All seem fine. No issues with size three Aldi which many people seem to have. FWIW I find less escaping poo with reusable nappies (I started using part time from around 10 weeks old).

Smartbottoms and TJs mainly.

ApplesandBananas21 · 26/06/2021 12:14

Little Angels from Asda or Nutmeg from Morrison's. Never had any problems

Hockeyboysmum · 26/06/2021 12:15

Rascal and friends from tesco or sainsburys own make

Babymamma192 · 26/06/2021 12:32

I use pampers for both my dds.

Tried the aldi ones once and they were awful!

eandz13 · 26/06/2021 12:35

Nutmeg (Morrison's), surprised how many like Pampers, I've always found them a bit naff for the price

ISaidDontLickTheBin · 26/06/2021 12:36

Always used to use Aldi nappies until first lockdown when we switched to shopping deliveries. Pampers are always fab (only when on offer though!) Asda are good but a bit bulkier than Pampers. Ocado own brand are nice also.

Letsallscreamatthesistene · 26/06/2021 13:08

Fred and Flo ones from Tesco. I used to use Pampers and then I realised the price difference.

ChocOrange1 · 26/06/2021 13:10

We mainly use reusables, which I love.
We use aldi ones for overnight and if we are away and its impractical e.g. camping. I do think they smell horrible when wet but I don't know if that's the aldi ones specifically or just disposables in general.

FizzingWhizzbee123 · 26/06/2021 13:22

Pampers for both kids. Tried other brands and just don’t like them.

DS2 was in Pampers Premium until he hit Size 4, and is now in the Active Fit range which is actually really good. I’m not keen on Baby Dry.

AyyX · 27/06/2021 00:28

I’ve always liked pampers too and got very used to it, Aldi’s and Lidl’s just don’t seem as good. Price difference is a lot though.

I remember using pampers nappy pants size 3 when my dd started rolling and never let me change/put a nappy on her. She was quite a chubby baby with chunky legs so I think I had her in that very young as it fit.

I always shop in Sainsbury’s for groceries and see quite a few people mention their own nappy brand so I might give it a try and see if it’s any good.

Kit and Kin. They are excellent, no leaks and so soft.

Itsnoteasyfeelingqueasy · 27/06/2021 10:30

I’ve used Sainsbury’s own from day one, now using their pull ups too and happy with them

Lira91 · 27/06/2021 11:26

I used sainsburys own brand for DS, I'd use them now for DD but we don't have one nearby. I use Asda's little angel brand now and they're just as good. I've never had any leaks with either of them and they absorb well too.

AutumnLeafDance · 27/06/2021 11:34

Bubblebubs Bamboo Delight fitted cloth nappies with Thirsties covers are absolutely fantastic. They are super absorbent and absolutely bombproof, last for years and multiple babies if you look after them and save of approximately 6000 disposable nappies per child from ending up in landfill.

Kit and Kin were awful. So many leaks.
