Being a single mum on a budget, I am cost sensitive. So purchasing disposable nappies, I’ve been on the look out for cheap options. However, obviously it has to do the job, which means no leaks and mess … it needs to hold the dirty stuff in, and keep bub’s bottom reasonably fresh (no rashes etc).
When bub was younger, I was a little more sensitive to what materials etc, in case of rashes/allergies/chemicals … now bub is older, I’m a little less sensitive.
There is a mummies group of FB, where this question has been asked … with varying degrees of enthusiasm and experience.
Here is my two cents worth.
I buy Aldi’s nappies, for $11.50 (approx) a bag of 50, it’s hard to compete on price.
I was recently given two bags of huggies nappies (for girls – with 24 nappies in each pack) so thus this review. Btw, I couldn’t see or tell why it was girl specific
From one pack of huggies (i.e. 24 nappies) which we had bub’s poopie seeped out at least 5 to 6 times. The elastic, although much fancier than that on the Aldi’s, just didn’t seem to work. In terms of holding in wetness, it also didn’t compare. We had at least 3 nights where bub’s clothes were damp, and one night, the bed was also wet!
My view on Huggies vs Aldis, is Aldis wins hands down.
Would love to hear other’s thoughts and experience. Or just take the poll below.
