    I hate huggies, as soon as they are wet they seem to go all crystallised and hard !!
    I usually stick with pampers baby dry, find them brill for night time especially!

    I'm not keen on huggies either. Work ok for Charlotte but not for Tommy plus I find they're far too frilly on the leg. You spend ages untucking it when you're putting them on.

    If you're going for disposables I thought Pampers were ok, Sainsburys own brand were just as good. Asda's weren't bad although they went all crystally too. Ugh!

    BTW did you know that crystal stuff was banded in tampons years ago! :shock: Another good reason to turn to the cloth side. :rofl:

    Tried Huggies free sample packs - eg buy these nappies, get this change bag free and they were ok when Bethanie was first born. But have tried them again recently and they're no good, leaks all over the place.

    I have stuck to Pampers Baby Dry and they are definitely the best ones for us. I think it varies a lot with you baby though, you'll get to know whats best :)

    Since we're plugging nappies though, get Huggies Pure baby wipes, they're lovely. More expensive than some of the other wipes, but definitely worth the extra.

    They were fine on Charlie, and I liked them when she was a newborn. I now use Pampers.
    I love Tesco own, and Boots are good too.
    We didnt get on with Asda or Sainsburys own.

    I tried Huggies a couple of times but they leaked, we use Pampers Baby Dry and they're great.
    Also don't like huggies wipes I find they're like tissue paper as they rip easy and are a bugger to get out of the packet.

    Well I'm gonna go against the grain here - I always buy Huggies for Ky - Since he started crawling Pampers began to mark his legs and Huggies don't - They seem to fit him better.

    I must add though, he never has particularly soaking wet nappies, maybe you get the leakage problems when the nappies are particularly full?

    I personally like them. I've tried Boots own and thought they were rubbish. The sticky tags on them aren't very sticky.

    That makes sense, and im sure it's true for a lot of people but im funny about nappies, change them constantly and they still seem to leak.

    i used pampers when kacy was new born and they were great, but when they changed them to flexi they were rubbish cos she is skinny she does one wee or poo and it comes out the side, with huggies they seemed to fit her better round the legs.

    but for next one will be using pampers at first then it just depends.

    But defo love huggies

    I have tried pampers a few times and each night they have leaked without fail.
    Huggies have been quite good a nice fit.
    But the best i have found are Tescos and costco nappies.

    I use Tesco/pampers and I change Amelias bum on average every 1.5/2 hours. Obvioulsey not thorugh night that often

    Huggies are only crap if left on too long they dont have staying power of others.

    I love pampers (green packet,baby dry?) and Johnsons baby wipes.
