    Thumbs up Good Nappy Brands

    Hey Everyone,

    I am currently using Huggies (el primo $$)... just wondering if anyone can suggest brands that are just as good but cheaper?

    Thanks,
    Nets

    Na I havent tried anything else Danni as I didnt want to waste my money tryng all the brands and then finding out they are no good..

    Sari's poos can be quite runny (or lots of it) so I need something that is still good enough to hold then in like Huggies do (most of the time).

    I used Snugglers with DD from around 6 months of age and I never had a problem but my SIL hates them. Everyones different I suppose.

    I tried the ecobots and I wasnt that impressed with them, they were ok but I wouldnt rush to buy another pack.

    I use Huggies for Charlotte but when Madison was in nappies she was in either huggies or Aldi. I don't lkie baby love, coles brand or snugglers.

    As other people have said everyone is different when choosing nappies.

    Aldis are the cheapest ones I have found and I LOVE THEM. I still use huggies at night though ..but I think Aldis would actually be ok at night as well.

    Tried Snugglers and found they smelt. Like Babylove but Aldis are cheaper and better anyway!.

    Well I tried Snuggler and Baby Love and the both leaked so I was a committed Huggies customer only. Then I tried Aldi and was very impressed - they were good for 12 hours through the night also. But in saying that...

    Question for Aldi customers - has anyone found that the quality changes?? The first packet I bought they were excellent, then the second one I bought the other day - he weed out of them every night he has had them on!! They are the same size, but they appear smaller - has anyone found this? NOT HAPPY! (So had to buy a packet of Huggies today...)

    just a thought have you tried looking up some of the nappy companies on line and asking for a sample pack. i know coles sell a trial pack of 3 nappies for around $1.50.

    when mine where younger i always used huggies - others were quite useless imo. as they get older i usually went between huggies, babylove, aldi, or coles brand - basically whatever was on special.

    I don't like huggies at all - they squish them up too much. I really like Snugglers and they are a good price.
    The Ecobots are great and I read somewhere that 70% of them breaks down really quickly in landfill.

    I switched from Huggies to Aldi and have never looked back. It cost about $16 for a pack of 50 which is really good. Jett wears them through the night as well and we have never had any leakage problems.
    I have had the same quality with my nappies, but they have changed to the 'new and imporved' so maybe they were an old batch??

    Are you part of a Mother's Group? I am a clothie user so no real advice, but the girls in my Mother's Group all bought a small pack of nappies each and then did swaps between them of the different brands of nappies. That way they all got to try out a heap of different brands and see what they liked.
    I know the 'You'll love Coles' nappies comes in a trial pack of 3 for $1.50... I did buy a pack as back-ups, I found them fantastic.
