Sizing problems again!
I bought a huge box of Huggies Infant 4-8kg with 192 nappies thinking that it will cover my baby all the way until she is 8kg but it is looking very unlikely now. This one also has sizing problems and at 3 months / 5.5kg it is looking pretty snug and tight on my baby. From time to time poo and urine leaked out and I find myself avoiding using it when she sleeps during the night. I can't wait to use up the remaining nappies and move on to other brands.
Has huggies down graded without us knowing??
I have been a huggies fan with all 4 of my children,top of the range nappies. Now i have had my 5th child i have seen a massive diffrence in the quality of their products. My child has horrible nappy rash ( yes i change them frequently) they do not absorb like they use to! Rubbish is what i say! Especially for the price! Have a screaming baby with looks like blisters on her bottom afer buy a new packet!
Great! Never leak!
Love the new Huggies Infant. Love that the new wide feature. We were using Huggies Newborn Ultimate previously, and there was always leak by the baby. Once the baby is old enough to use Infact, we switched and never had a leak after that. We are not using the Ultimate version, but it is good enough!
We've also used Huggies since birth without ever having an issue, that is until we decided to try the ultimate range. Yes they are comfortable looking but that's where it ends, they leak!! I too thought it was user error & made sure it was on snug but it didn't help. I don't even think it was leaking out the sides but rather through the 'luxurious' material itself!! Night times have become a nightmare havingbto change wet clothes, sleeping bag & all bed linen! Definitely won't be buying again!!!

Best nappy in the market
Have been using Huggies for my LO who is 3 months old now and couldn't find any other as good as Huggies. Its true that you need to take special care to make sure its snug, and if you do it right, its the best and baby sleeps throughout the night without any leaks specially in Huggies ultimate which is better than Ultra Dry in terms of sizing. Negative point is that they are a bit expensive.
I got given ultimate infant nappies. They worked really well when my daughter was a newborn, but for the infant size her bottom was just too big. I had to pull out the inner elastic to make sure it covered her bottom but inevitably it would always explode up her back or on the sides. I wouldn't buy these, even though the newborn ones worked really well.
WORST NAPPIES EVER!! LEAKAGE EVERYTIME
My baby is 6kg and 7 weeks old and we were using the infant 4 to 8kg nappies and they fitted fine, but leaked nearly every single nappy. We made sure we had the nappy fitted correctly especially being a boy.
Nappies were never full but always leaked, they would not absorb whatsoever (three boxes of them did this) although the newborn nappies we used before these were fine. We complained to huggies about this and the support was terrible.
They tried to blame us for either our child being too big for the nappies or that we were not fitting...them properly. This was not the case. We then sent off some of the nappies for testing, and after 3 weeks and loads of follow up calls they tried to say they did not recieve the samples. Then after arguing with them, they magically found them and advised me that there was nothing wrong with the nappies and to try the next size up. (Which I have tried from my friend and they are wayy to big). Ended up changing brands and the new nappies we use are the same size and have not leaked at all, and they are nearly half the price!!

Reliable, affordable and quality nappies
Have been using Huggies nappies since newborn size and we've now upgraded to infant size due to my baby's growth spurt. With the new design of the wider pocket, I noticed it allowed the wetness and poop to distribute evenly. For messier nappy changes, we have noticed it holds the urine and poop well (as long as the previous nappy was put on snuggly. It will leak if the nappy was not placed snug and loose. We also tried one less nappy change during the night and for our baby, it can hold at least four hours of a wet nappy before our infant deman...ds for a change (mind you, every child is different in the amount they urinate during the night). The wet nappy line indicators a great feature without having to completely remove clothing and disturb the baby's state (e.g sleeping, playing, etc). We have tried the ultimate infant nappy boxes and the extra softness, breathable and aloe vera/vitamin e is an added feature however for the ultimate you only get 72 nappies. Whereas the regular box of 96, has an extra 24 nappies so more cost-effective. We also have purchased the bulk 144 box during specials held by stores so overall, just buy the larger boxes to keep it affordable. As long as we continue to apply a nappy barrier cream at every nappy change we agree there's no difference between ultimate and regular box. Thus far, happy to continue using Huggies.
Dont Buy! They Leak every single time
My son is 9 months old, and im forever changing his nappy due to the poor quality! not to mention the amount of clothes i go thru for him. These nappies leak almost every single change, Its not just wet, his dirty nappy leaks as well! today alone i have changed his clothes 4 times, and im over it! They are way over priced for the quality you get. Definitely not buying anymore, im done...
The Only Nappy where you need training on to make it the most absorbent nappy on the market
Been using Huggies along with other brands (Newborn, Ultra-dry Boys 4-8kg Infant and Ultimate Boys 4-8kg Infant). This is one of the worst nappies to put on a baby if you don't get trained on it. If you think about it, how hard is it to put on a nappy? All other brands I have encountered (except for Snugglers which suffers the same issue) is a 3 step process. 1. Put the nappy under the baby, 2 Fold over, and 3. Fold the side tabs and stick it in front. If you follow these 3 steps without the additional 4 steps, you will guarantee a leak from Hu...ggies, even if it's the most absorbent nappy on the market. Now if you follow the next 4 steps, Huggies will be able to handle Poonamis like no other nappies can. (including Merries, Moony, Babylove, Mamia etc). Once you have done the 3 steps above, you need to do the following steps for Huggies nappy to actually do its job properly. So to repeat Step 1. Open Nappy and Place under baby (like all other nappies) Step 2. Fold nappy to the front - if you have a boy, point member down, so he doesn't pee on himself. Step 3. Fold the side tabs onto the front of the nappy.
Keeps baby sleeping for longer
I find it tricky to get huggies nappies to sit closely around the buttom without the obvious crease/fold.
That was why I started using other brands however my baby is approaching 4 months and still wakes up often so I switched back to huggies at night to see if it helps my baby sleep longer by keeping him feeling dry for longer. On the first night he slept for the longest since birth 2x4hrs!!
I find other nappies so much easier to put on so I hesitated giving it full stars but it gives me more sleep so that trumps all.
I use huggies at night, comfybots or aldi nappies for day.
So soft, and dry
These nappies are extremely the best, so soft for my baby, they are a good size, and fit her amazingly, my baby was went after a nap and i thought it would have annoyed her, but these nappies even after my baby has wet through, the nappies are dry as a bone. They have not ever caused a rash either.
Not for senstive babies.
I loved this product! Unfortunately our baby did not. At first I thought he just had a bad nappy rash but after going to the docs turned out to be an allergic reaction to some chemical in them. Rest assured this is only a problem if your baby is super sensitive but if they aren't I would totally recommend as they are some of the best nappies I've come across.
New design (mother to a 3 month old boy)
The new design feels very silky and luxurious, however they have a major flaw, they leak. At first I thought it was user error, and i would make sure that it was tight enough and put the sides out to stop it from leaking (even though I never had an issue with the previous design). But still leaked through all his clothes and night times become horrible with constant changes in bed sheets, clothes and nappies (with a screaming baby to toe). I still love the brand so Iam just going to go back to the older design and hopefully huggies fixes these issues.
Worse nappies out
Coming from a rural town, for some reason they are only stocking the ultimate in the boys toddler pull-ups, and newborns which I decided to start stocking up with the next one due soon. First week of using it my son had started developing this strange rash on his upper legs, we are having no problems yet with leakages as he close to be toilette trained. But not good enough huggies and I would like a replacement of both boxes for the old variety "which use have said the line is not getting cancelled" but it i very rare seeing them here I. The country.
leaking leaking leaking
Absolutely terrible. Every single nappy has leaked, sometimes the nappy doesn't even indicate he's peed because it's just gone straight out the side of his nappy. Need to bring 3 pairs of clothes if we go to the shops, I've changed his bed sheets every single day and sometimes twice through the night, extremley frustrated, we've gone through over 300 nappies in 17 days, and he is 17 days old. Going to use the rest as they were given to us by family, but once out will not be purchasing.
Rash on toddler
Always used Huggies with my kids. Grandkids now use them. New design of nappy and my Grandson has developed the worst rash which is really sore around the leg rims of the nappy. Disgusted Why never had problem before Not happy Jan Rash was so bad it blistered thought it was teething but didnt stop until changed brand
There are other better nappies in the market!
I bought Huggies infant (jumbo pack) nappies thinking that i am missing out on the best nappy for my baby. Turned out it was a mistake. They are small in size for my 5.3kg baby and also leaves mark around her waist as it is tight. Why bother buying expensive Huggies when there are better quality nappies for less price?
Why bother putting a huggies nappy on?
My son only weighs 3.5kgs so the newborn nappies should be the right size. We used them for 4 weeks with no problems until we got a 180 mega pack and every single nappy has leaked out while the nappy remains dry causing my baby to scream from his clothes, blankets, bedding, pram being soaked & making him cold. I have done 3 loads of laundry today from leaking nappies, why bother putting them on it would be much cheaper and do the same job as huggies newborn nappies. I change his nappy very regularly & have tried every sort of adjustment with no improvements and have now given up, this is the last thing a new mum needs on top off all the other things we have to do. I emailed huggies & will update on their response.
Steer clear! I thought they were meant to be reputable
At 6kg, baby was already too big for the nappy and it also leaked within 2 1/2 hrs of use. Soaked through 2 layers of clothes and 2 bedsheet layers. The front was all full and it leaked out the side as well. This is not what I expected from such a bug name. They aren't exactly budget priced either.
Questions & Answers
A wondering about the warning circulating on Facebook that these nappies leak chemicals and causes burning to the baby requiring hospital treatment?
It can happen to any brand of nappy. It has happened and shops have had recalls on them but it does not happen often. Just a bad batch
