Apologies if this has been asked before. Just wondering if you are planning to use pampers or huggies for your babies? or perhaps something else I read about Huggies umbilicial nappies which have a little cut space for where the cord is but I think they might just be american. Anyone know anything about them? :thnk

Based on recommendations from family & friends we have gone with pampers and have not had any leaks so far. Until the stump fell off we folded down the top of the nappy without any issues.

I've heard my sister say she uses the Tesco Newborn nappies and they're really good.. Not so good for toddlers though!

Working in childcare I've changed many many nappies and definately Pampers seem to be the best! Others have to be changed more often, leak, and seem to cause nappy rash more often.

I used pampers newborn for few months which were great then tried the green pampers and thought they were really bad for leaks so moved onto huggies and no leaks. No that he's older were using Tesco and these are really good too.

We have used Huggies, Pampers and Tesco nappies and found them all to be the same! So going on that we now buy Tesco nappies, its about €10 for 88 nappies. But when DS starts moving around and crawling we'll probably switch to Pampers as I have heard Tesco ones arent great for movement. Just remember to fold down the front part until the cord drops off and for little boys always make sure their "little man" is pointing down!! Happy Nappying :o)ll

Pampers ALWAYS leaked for me, I found them useless. We are an Aldi nappy household here - 50 nappies for I think €7. They are bulkier than the Pampers, but (bad mother alert) if you end up leaving them on a bit longer they never burst, which I also found the pampers ones sometimes did.

I used Pampers until a few mths ago and decided to give the Aldi ones a go, my DS has very sensitive skin so was a little wary my only regret is I didn't do it sooner, you can get nearly 3 packs in Aldi for the price of one Pampers & he has no probs, we also tried the Lidl ones and no probs there either in fact my friend showed me an article one day & the Aldi ones come out second to pampers in a survey
