Post subject: Supermarket's own nappies
I read recently that a newborn can go through 12 nappies a day. This is my first pregnancy and it made me think of how expensive stocking up is going to be. I already have many packs of Pampers and Huggies ready for the little one's arrival but I noticed Asda'a own brand newborn nappies are £1.64 for 24 (same as Tesco, £1.99 for 24 at Boots).
Does anyone out there use supermarkets own nappies and would you say they are just as good as the other big brand nappies. Im just hoping to save an extra few pounds each week by getting some 'cheaper' ones.

hi i used to buy pampers or huggies wen my baby was born but as you say can get expnsive and its only just recenetley i got the tesco value nappies £1.48 for 20(a lot cheaper) and they work just fine now leaks no accidents with them. but my daughters 19 months now and dont have sensitive skin like a new born so i dont no wether they wud cause any problems for a new born.

I have tried Tesco's super dry, used them for a couple of days, but they seemed thicker than Pampers and swelled a lot more when wet. I made sure I put plenty of Sudocrem on when I used them.
Not harm in trying them though, every baby is different. I would always use pampers at night, with the extra sleep layer. Definitely makes a difference to my son.
If you are buying pampers the boxes are much better value, Asda do them for about £10.00(and if you have vouchers, can be even cheaper). I think larger Tesco's do them as well for a similar price.
Good luck with it all.

i always use sainsburys own brand about 7 quid for 70. i brought some pampers on special last week and whem my lil un woke up i noticed he had a club foot. the bleedi nappie had come right off. thankfully he didn,t do a poo! i thourght maybe i hadn,t put it on right but this happened again several times and they leak straight through and we change his bum pretty regular.
boots and superdrug own brand are very good as well. but as someone said b4 asdas aren,t the best.
own brand baby wipes are excellent value too!
