    Huggies definately, esp when you can get them for $30 a box. Toys R Us have them at the moment for $32 which is still a very good deal. Aldi's nappies gave my DD a really bad rash around her waist.

    Huggies are great and very absorbant, and even better when they are on sale! I'll always buy a box when theyre cheap. Otherwise, I buy the Coles brand as they seem to work just as well for us. I have used Snugglers but they didnt seem to soak up as much as the Huggies and Coles. I have also used the Babylove nappies, but they dont seem to fit on Claires bum very well. Woolies nappies seem a strange shape to me - like too wide or something.

    Thanks Sammi!!

    I generally like Huggies.. but am after something a little cheaper. Ive just bought Youll love Coles and they seem to be going pretty good. I think theyre actually just as good as huggies (they have the grip tabs also), but just arent as soft. I'll probably buy them when Huggies arent on sale.

    BTW Woolies have a Huggies special this week, 2 packs for $30.. which is equivelant to buying a box!

    With Aldi brand.. i used them once but wasnt too sure about them being unisexed? Do you think that makes a difference. I also found them quite hard to put on... like theyre not shaped around the legs?

    We use the You'll Love Coles ones all the time now. We used to use Huggies, but when they changed the shape of them we started to have issues. To me, the Coles ones are the same as what the Huggies used to be like & cheaper too.

    I think I've tried nearly every brand in the poll over the past 13 years of my nappy-changing life (have worked in a creche for 5 years in between my children and parents had to supply their own). Huggies are good but way too expensive and I found that the newborn size grips the very small babies skin too tightly around the legs (and I have scrawny babies too!). Aldi's Mamia brand are by far the best. I recommend them to everyone.

    we use huggies and woollies select.
    I only get the huggies when they are on sale, so for us they are good value as they rarely leak (and only when our heavy wetting DS splits them!).

    woollies select I would have voted for until this week, when more than half of the nappies from the box I bought recently have had the grip tabs break wither when I put them on, or while he's been wearing them, so I've only noticed when I've changed him.

    I forgot to add that I once had to buy another brand: Nature's babycare (from Coles) and i also found them to be very good and a bit more ethical/environmentally kind than Huggies.... it was only the price (cheaper) that keeps me with the Aldi brand.... if they were the same price i would use them more often (Nature's).

    ok i have tried heaps in my DS's short life.

    I have heaps of aldi nappies here that wont get used He is 6 kilos now and the 3-6 kilos nappies leak out of everywhere as they are too big i guess?

    We have never leaked out of huggies or baby love.

    We use babylove during the day and huggies at night. I buy the big boxes of baby love from big w and they are much cheaper

    I used Huggies for over a year, and loved them. Then tried Baby Love which also did the job well... but I would have to say that for price, the Mamia (Aldi ones) win hands down. To me they are very similar to Huggies, and better than BabyLove, and have never once leaked!
    I really, really, really don't like Snugglers. Their sizing is way too small, they have barely any padding/absorbancy, and they dont have a stretch waist - which I think is very important for bub's comfort.

    We use Aldi during the day and cant fault them...unless Chels has done a poo and then a wee..they tend to leak and get quite mess then (soz TMI).

    Huggies for overnight each and every time.

    Coles ones failed everytime i used them... hated them

    Woolies were the worst i have EVER used..

    I'm only a casual disposable nappy user, but have found that Huggies & You'll Love Coles nappies both do a fantastic job - but Huggies are just that little bit trimmer. BabyLove aren't too bad, and even tho the Woolies homebrand ones are a weird shape, they work quite well.
