Post subject: Supermarket's own brands
Hi there.

Does anyone use any Supermarket own brand nappies? Pampers and Huggies are 3.99 for newborn packs but Asda and Tesco's own brand newborn packs are 1.64...that's a hell of a difference considering newborns can go through 12 a day!
Does anyone regularly use own brand nappies and would you say they were just as good as the big brand nappies?

Apparently lidl and Aldi make ones that are as good as pampers.

I had a voucher for a free pack from Lidl so i'll be comparing them to my pampers ones.

Mind you, i've used supermarket tampons once and they just weren't the same as Tampax. I can't think of anything else that's absorbent to compare!!!!

they might have changed now but i tryed the asda own band nappies with my daughter and i ound the silicone gel stuff kept coming out when the nappie was wet so you ended up changing them more often so false economy really. always used and will use again huggies..

i've been getting huggies on special offer from cosco and saving them up but i did buy one pack of asda own brand newborn size 1 in the small chance this boy turns out to be small!!!! Rolling Eyes i didn't want to buy huggies newborn 1 then not use them and my cousin said asda own brand were ok (i think they've improved them recently?). she said tesco own brand weren't that great and leaked a lot xxxx

I would agree.. LIDL nappies and Aldi nappies are without a shadow of a doubt the best on the market!! and half the price!!

Boots own brand leaked a LOT for us. Really bad - we also didn't get on that well with Huggies, but Pampers seem to work well, so we've ended up sticking with them. I think I'll give Lidl a go though based on these comments!!
