I'd like to vote for reuseables because it looks better but I've never used them so I can't. :O

I voted Tesco because I used Pampers and Huggies for the my first child feeling that supermarket's own brands couldn't possibly be as good (and being a brand snob), however when at 5 years of age she was still wearing a nappy at night I could no longer afford premium nappies and tried Tesco's... I was so impressed that I used them with DD2 too.

I've had Pampers since and don't like them at all, Huggies are good too but Tesco are excellent value, are comfortable and they work.

They do do a pull up. I only started using Tescos when mine were bigger so not sure how well they cope with newborn poo but they're fine for bigger botties :)

Have to say I'm a true Pampers chick ... and was the last time ... although I have heard really good comments re. Huggies and think when I'm buying them next I'll buy a small pack of Huggies to see how they are.

Clare I did try the pull ups once (by accident, bought the wrong ones) and they were fine but as DD2 is dry during the day I just use a normal nappy at night. Neither of mine have got on with pull ups, they treated them like nappies and weed in them :rolleyes:

I used a pck of huggies pull ups with DD2 (they were reduced lol) and they kept splitting down the sides so I had to put knicks on over them ?(

I love Huggies through and through! I usually buy them when they are on offer in Boots or in bulk from Costco and save a few quid then :))

With Lolly having such long legs the way that they are curved between the legs stops any rubbing. I tried tesco once in the newborn size but they were so bulky and not very flexible. My sister uses tesco though and loves them, its just we haven't got a tesco locally so it would be a pain to fetch them :))

While we're on the subject of nappies though, just wandering a little here, but has anyone mastered the art of getting one on whilst your baby is crawling away? I really am at my wits end here!!! I've tried singing (perhaps thats why she runs!) giving her toys to hold, silly faces - the works!! :D

I have used huggies since Libbys birth, did try a few pampers but they leaked everywhere , i was told that pampers are better for boys ( not entirely true me thinks) I get the huggies in bulk when they are on 3 4 2 in boots.

Libby does that twisting thing and crawls away before I can get the clean nappy on. Even if I have hold of her two legs in the air she still wriggles free Grrrrrrr humph.

We will have to devise a plan evil2

I've had leaks with both pampers and huggies, Tescos were great but we are getting on so well with reusables that there's no point buying any.

On a similar subject, I've heard of biodegradable nappy sacks, does anyone know where I can buy them? And also biodegradable/more eco friendly baby wipes?

Look forward to the tips for stopping babies disappearing whilst having their nappies changed, at the moment M just likes to put her feet in her dirty nappy :rolleyes:

Tushies does wiped and nappies... gel free 100% biodegradeable
the nolltex nappies are not as good as tushies

nappy sacks are still one more layer to degrade so it adds time on your nappie

I started with Pampers and think they are the best for us, no leaks no problems, even with runny doodoos, they have always been great for me. But I think they smell awful when wet, its disgusting.

I have since tried Huggies and am not keen, had two leaks from runny doodoos so far, cant wait to finish using them as its ruining the vests and babygrows.

I have Tescos ones to try, I have used one only and didnt notice the bulk but have noticed they are not as soft and flexible as the pampers and Huggies?????

I am stuggling at the moment to find one I am totally happy with, still searching!!

Megan is currently using Pampers, mainly because I had a load of £2 off vouchers which meant the new born ones were cheaper than Tesco own. Also use Huggies and Tesco own.

Have also tried Sainsbury's own but had some major leaks with those so gave up on them

Pampers by far are the best for us. I like the flex ones that just stretch & stretch, no probs at all, perfect fit, Tesco we do use sometimes they are ok, quite bulky thou, Huggies didn't like material & fit.

Pampers for us, there are always deals on them. She leaks through everyone I have ever tried boots, huggies, tesco, sainsbury I think it is because she poos very rarely so when she does the nappy can't cope :scared:

As for moving around M does keep still for nappy changes it the foot in the mouth manuover i can't get round!

I have tried all other makes to try to reduce the amount I pay for nappies but you can't beat Pampers as far as I am concerned so the no tax is great too.

I have to say I have never had a leak with huggies no matter whether a #1 or#2, except once like M24P, there was no nappy that could have held it all! Plus Dp hadn't pulled out the wing bit so there was no way it could have stayed in there! :rolleyes: And like Chilli says there is never an imprint on her bottom :))

Plus - you get triple advantage points on huggies at boots,and they have usually got some sort of offer on :))
