    Trail and error, each baby has individual needs and gets on better with differnt brands. I use pampers and tesco nappies, but getpampers when there on offer cos of the cost but I like tescos and both my kids ue them without major problems.

    I dislike huggies as I feel the fit is poor

    I've always used huggies, never had a problem with them. Pampers always leaked :wall: and so did asda nappies.

    Again i would say trial and error, i didn't like pampers personally. Often used tesco, i found morrisons ones leaked. at the moment im using ones from lidal, they are just under a fiver for 56 i think nappies, size 3 though. And i don't think one nappy is enough for a sample would need a few to see if you like them or not. Keep trying till your happy!

    I know this sounds silly but I didnt want to buy Huggies as I dont like winne the pooh and they have him printed on them *feels very silly for thinking this*
    My friend told me they caused really bad nappy rash with her little boy too. She swears by Aldi's own brand. Has anyone tried these? I think Im going to go with pampers new born for my hospital bag as I have a few £1 off coupons.

    I agree with this. I usually buy Tescos and Pampaers. I find Huggies don't fit that well and have no stetch. Asda do laek too. Pampers all the ay

    I prefer Huggies as they are so soft! :hug:
    But I used pampers on my eldest, huggies on my middle as she couldn't wear pampers, then pampers on my eldest boy....and now huggies for my baby!
    Then when they were older I used Asdas own....! So each baby is different.

    You are probably best off buying a few different brands to see which you find the best. I think it depends on the gender, size and shape of your baby as to how good each brand suits you. I use Pampers or Tesco's nappies most of the time. I think that Tesco nappies are really good and they never leak with Jake but I didn't like the Tesco newborn nappies as they are quite bulky and didn't seem like they would be very comfortable.

    I love the nappy threads, i always find people completely find the opposite of each other with fit and softness, weird! :rotfl:

    I personally hate pampers as they leak every time and are so hard, i find huggies are super and so stretchy. Isla was a chunky baby and i find people often like different brands for chubby / skinny babies and boy or girls can make a difference too when it comes to fit and leakages.

    I bet this baby will be no good in huggies, it seems to be an awkward toad so far!

    I used pampers when Shannon was newborn up to about the age of 2 and they were fantastic, never had a problem with them, good fit, good absorbancy etc.

    However, when she got bigger I found that pampers only went up to size 5+ and they started leaking so tried Huggies who do a size 6 and have found these equally brilliant. So i changed when she got older as my her needs changed.

    although wish i had tried some own brands, a friend of mine swears by boots own.

    hope this helps
