Which disposable nappies do you recommend?

Kit & Kin. Super soft. Not awful for the environment. Never leak.

we've used Aldi's Mamia nappies from day one and never had a problem. DD is 14 months now. Also me and DH have both worked in nurseries and had experience of every nappy going 😂 we both agreed Mamia were the best for us x

I would also recommend Kit and Kin.
We also use Mum & you nappies which come up slightly bigger which has been great for my chunky daughter. No leaks and they are supposed to be biodegradable. They are more expensive that supermarket brands but I buy a monthly subscription so much cheaper than buying the odd pack and they are delivered. No chemicals either.

Lidl. Never had an issue with them. I used Aldi for my other dc but no longer live close to one. I tried reusables, spending quite a lot of money today a Baba & Boo birth to potty kit. I don’t know if I got a dodgy batch, but they all leaked badly after less than 2 months of very careful use and they refunded me after inspecting them. Made me very wary of trying other reusables.

I mainly use reusable nappies and kit & Kin for long car journeys or if we're at a festival etc. I just can't abide by how long the ALDI nappies take to biodegrade. Up to 500 years...

Sainsbury’s or Aldi. Switched to Sainsburys at the start of lockdown because I was doing my food shopping there (rather than nipping to Aldi for baby products, veg and gin) and was really impressed.

Aldi were my favourite. Tescos next best. Hated Pampers, gave my son bad nappy rash.

CarrotCakeSupprise · 03/11/2020 14:39

Tesco's work well for us. We've tried Pampas as well but they're no better for literally three times the price.

I looked at the Kit and Kin nappies but apparently they don't biodegrade if you throw them away in a plastic bag and I'm not sure how you're supposed to avoid that.

IgorThalia · 03/11/2020 14:49

@carrotcakesurpprise I just chuck them in the wheelie bin as they are. Kit & Kin also sell biodegradable nappy sacks specifically for this reason Smile

Oneandabean · 03/11/2020 14:53

Aldi mamia are brilliant

CarrotCakeSupprise · 03/11/2020 14:59

@IgorThalia that sounds good! Our bin men won't take anything out of a bin bag unfortunately so wouldn't work for us, which is a shame because it's a great idea.

I think it depends on the baby. My personal favourite were Aldi and Tesco however Tesco have changed since DS used them.

Albgo · 03/11/2020 15:10

Completely depends on your budget. If you have the money, the nicest by far are Mum & You (M&Y). They are so soft and lovely. I can't afford them sadly, but am perfectly happy with Lidl and Tesco.
I preferred Lidl for newborn as they have a little cut out bit to stop the umbilical cord being covered.

Helenknowsbest · 03/11/2020 18:17

Definitely don't fall into the pampers trap, they also gave my son nappy rash and are really expensive. I've used lidl and aldi which are great but settled on lidl lipilu as its closest to where I live.

Queenbee95 · 03/11/2020 19:27

I hate pampers, both my boys ended up with bad rashes and leaking through.

Always used nutmeg as morrisons is my closest supermarket, I think they are great

ChampooPapi · 03/11/2020 19:45

I use reusable or eco for as many things as possible but degradable nappies unfortunately only degrade in the right environment, they need to be composted to actually degrade and are never 100 percent degradable, so the other 20/30 percent prevents them actually degrading often.

There been a lot of controversy about them, which is such a shame as the good intentions are there, but they arnt that great

Another vote for Lidl lupilu nappies.
