How can you find cheap nappies?
I asked our community of bargain hunters on Facebook for their expert advice on how to buy cheap nappies. From Aldi to Pampers, automated subscriptions on Amazon to special discounts at Boots, eco-disposables, cloth nappies and more, this is a collection of invaluable advice for parents from parents.
Unlike magazines paid by advertisers, brands pushing their own products, or price comparison sites which only list affiliated products, our community gives you unbiased advice to help you save. No ifs, just butts.
- Before we begin - there is a big debate about eco-disposable vs reusable vs disposable nappies. This article does not attempt to answer this but sticks to what we do best: finding the cheapest price.
Which nappy fits best?
When speaking with 25,000 parents it immediately becomes apparent every baby is different. There were a range of opinions as to which brand of nappy fitted, and answers varied within the family too.
- When my kids were little Aldi was the best - Pampers used to leak everywhere. Dannii Bentham
- I have to use Tesco nappies on my two year-old as Aldi nappies don't fit. Kate Bartlett
- With my first child, nothing except Pampers worked. All the rest leaked! With my second I found Aldi great. Carine Du Plessis
- All kids are so different e.g. my little boy was always a bigger baby. It was hard to find nappies that fit him correctly and that didn't leak. Christina Ibrahim
Where can I buy cheap nappies?
There was a near unanimous agreement that supermarket homebrands were preferred over more expensive brands such as Pampers and Huggies. When the latter was bought, it seemed more out of reluctance or special circumstance.
- I swear by Aldi nappies. For years I was buying Pampers and literally throwing money away. Steph O'Shea
Aldi's Mamia nappies cost £5.29 (sometimes £4.99). The Pampers equivalent is £10.
- I used Tesco's own brand nappies on my little ones. You can get 3 packs for £10 often which I think is a great deal. I tried Pampers which were good, Asda's own were not bad but not my first choice. Christina Ibrahim
- I use Lidl nappies, they do a great value box. Otherwise, Pampers are a good deal through an Amazon subscription (read more below). Ruth Simpson
- Aldi 1st size nappies are perfect and cheap. Ágnes Faludi
- Lidl... 44 nappies for £2.19. Amie Stevens
- Lidl own brand are fantastic. Cheap, absorbent and great for the skin. No hint of irritation or leaking. Georgia Laurie
- I have always gone back to Tesco nappies. Tried almost all the brands and never found one that is perfect. ASDA nappies have always given my kids a rash. Aldi never fitted properly and Pampers tend to leak. But the Tesco ones seem to cause less problens in our house. The thing that shocks me the most is how much they vary in price brand to brand! Natalie Anne Nicholl
- ASDA Little Angels have had some bad press lately (skin irritation)... but I have always used them and they are fab. So many nappies for your money and they don't leak. I have never had a problem. Samjonahtoby Hodgetts
- I have five children and my eldest four all wore Pampers. Having my fifth, I thought I would try the Aldi nappies which initially I loved, but as time went on I noticed that they leaked and also didn't always absorb very well which left my little girl with a sore bum. I've since tried Tesco nappies and I love them. Maria Feltham
- Back in the days when mine were babies, I did use pampers and huggies, and then Morrisons, now there is so much on offer, but my tip then was go for cheaper nappies from birth as you are constantly changing them anyway, after every feed etc as they make so much mess and use better quality when their nappies are more regular, but as gonna be a grandma soon, I'll prob be making use of shops own brand. Also depends on sensitivity of babies of course. Carey Lam
Parents move to branded products for training nappies
As your little one grows you'll progress to training nappies. For these our community seemed to move away from the discount supermarkets and more frequently purchase branded products. There seems to be more higher quality choice available:
- At first I used Aldi for nappies, then Pull-Ups for training nappies. Scott Moyles
Explaining training nappies to me in more detail, Carine Du Plessis said:
- With a training nappy you pull it down like knickers. It's for when they are a bit older. If I remember the good ones are Huggies - but it's unbelievably expensive.
Speaking of when kids are a bit older and move more, Abby Renton said:
- I would say Boots nappies are brilliant until your little one is crawling everywhere. Which, at that point, she was in Pampers nappy pants because they were easier. It's basically a Pull Up but they do them from Size 3s and it's just so much easier for me cause once I've got them through on her legs I'll just stand her up and slide them up her legs.
How to get cheap nappies at Boots
Special discounts and price glitches were revealed at Boots. A few parents explained why they preferred Boots nappies, and how you can save money there:
- I use Boots nappies. There is often 3 for £7 deal on, and you get your Advantage card points. Beth Brown
Beth also pointed out if you're member of the Boots Contact Lenses scheme you can get an extra 10% off all Boots own brand products.
- I get an extra 10% off as I'm in the contact lenses scheme.
Plus, if you order online you can often make use of triple points promotions and Boots offers free click and collect. Beth and Sarah Bradley pointed out that sometimes there are price glitches on nappies:
- A couple of times they have done the 3 for £7 nappy deal there has been a glitch and it discounts down to about £2 for 3 packs!
- I had a Boots voucher come through the post. I also had one loaded on my Advantage card and got nappies for less than £1.50.
- Boots are the best to be honest. Sadie-Liza Johnson
Boots offer free click & collect. You can often get triple Advantage points online.
How to get cheap Pampers from Amazon
If you're an Amazon Prime member you can get cheap Pampers. The online retailer offers large packs of nappies on their Subscribe & Save promotion.
This is both a great way to save money on nappies and to get them delivered to your home. No more clumsily carrying them home under each arm.
- We use Amazon Prime's Subscribe & Save option: we buy 200 odd nappies (Pampers) for £17 a month. Amalee Duquemin
- Most of the bigger Pampers size nappies are on Subscribe and Save with Amazon and are cheaper than anywhere else. Ágnes Faludi
Parents calculated that a month's supply of nappies from Aldi costs about £14-£15. With Pampers being £17 delivered with Subscribe & Save, it seems this may be a good Amazon deal.
How to get cheap eco-disposable nappies, reusables, Naty and cloth nappies
I think it's fair to say every parent wants to be environmentally friendly but the pain of washing re-usables and the cost of eco-disposables puts many off. However, here are some money saving tips to help you make that step:
- I use reusable nappies. There are loads on special offer when it is reusable nappy week (end of April every year). Also search for reusable nappy Facebook Groups. You can often get some for free. I do it due to chemicals in disposable nappies and it takes 500 years for a disposable ones to biodegrade unless its some of the eco-disposable nappies. A set of reusable training pants cost £15. Collette Brown
- I've used cloth nappies for three of mine. It works out much cheaper. I've tried a variety of brands, mio solo, bum genius, little lambs, etc and a variety of materials. Bamboo is one of my favourites: it was amazingly absorbant. I used cheap ones when newborn and moved up into birth to potty size once they were 2-3 months. Still loads of life in them now and look adorable on their bums. Gemma Cazarez
Avoid Marketing Tricks Like Disney Branded Nappies
Steph O'Shea pointed out branded nappies often use marketing tricks to dupe naive parents into spending more. For example, Disney themed nappies.
- Children don't see the nappies under their clothes anyhow but big brands try to use Disney characters to entice parents to buy. First time round parents are naive... I certainly was.
Extra Tips To Find Cheap Nappies
- Bum Deal is a nifty price comparison site for nappies. Created by a friend, Adam, it searches online supermarkets Tesco, ASDA, Sainsbury's, Waitrose, Ocado, Morrisons, ALDI and Boots. It compares home brands with premium brands including Huggies, Pampers and Bambo. However, you'll need to change the default setting to see the cheapest prices.
- Approved Food Deals - you can often find reduced-to-clear nappies on Approved Food, the online discount retailer.
- B&M Deals - one of the UK's largest discount retailer also stocks branded nappies. Sometimes there are large multi-buy offers which help you save money.
