Thrifty Thursday – Nappies

When my daughter was in nappies, I was in the lucky situation not to have to worry too much about the cost of things. Although I would try and buy nappies on special or the big bulk box, I normally bought Pampers. Now that I am a SAHM, we have to keep a tight reins on our finances. To keep nappy costs down, I had to do a cost and quality comparison across various brands.  My son is wriggly and does lots of wees and some crazy poos so I cannot skimp on quality in favour of cost. Although Pampers are good, they are a bit expensive (even when on special). I was not at all impressed with Tesco’s own brand, Tesco Loves Baby. Boots own brand nappies, Boots Baby, also failed to impress. I have never tried Sainsbury’s own brand, Little Ones. 
 
I have priced the size 5 nappies as these are what my 20-month old has been wearing for the past few months.  
 
Here are my Top Three Nappy Brands:
 
1. ASDA Little Angels Comfort Dry
Size 5 Junior 11-25kg, 40 nappies per pack
£5.97/pack , two packets for £10
Asda Little Angels Nappies
 
2. LIDL Toujours
Junior, 11-25kg, 44 nappies per pack 
£4.69/pack
Lidl’s disposable Toujours nappies top the Mumsnet chart for the second year in a row!
 
3. ALDI Mamia
Size 5, Junior,11-25kg, 40 nappies per pack
£4.49/pack
Mamia Ultra Dry Junior Nappies - Size 5
All three nappies are good at protecting from leaks, but the Little Angels are definitely the thickest and best for night time sleeps. It has won awards, as have Toujours and Mamia. All three seem to be quite comfortable. My son has sensitive skin and none of the top three have given him or contributed to nappy rash. The Toujours nappies are the most cost-effective so sometimes I will get them and primarily use them for daytime usage. 
 
Hope this helps! Happy Nappy (changing)!

  1. Great post! We have always used Nature Baby as they’re compostable but the expense causes me great pain!! #ThriftyThursday

  2. It makes total sense to source a good quality cheaper alternative. I can’t wait until nappies are no longer apart of our life and we can have a little bit of spare cash!

  3. We have used all of those brands in the past. We just use to buy whatever ones had the best offer on, although we found that Huggies generally had the best deals. Thanks for linking up to #ThriftyThursday 🙂
