Shocked how bad these are.
I've just had my first son and on his first lot of nappies I used a brand called "little ones" which we received from the baby shower, I had no issues with them after using the whole packet.
I then moved onto using the "Huggies Newborn" for the first time and from the first nappie poo leak out. The poo has only come out on that first nappy so benefit of the doubt I would say I may of put on incorrectly but there have been multiple times they have leaked through with wee onto all his clothes. Making the night changes much more dreadful having t...

I have been using huggies since my first born.been very satisfied with huggies for 17 years. But lately the new ones (now made in china). Are a huge disappointment. They sag, and then leak. Before huggies was value for money I would use 2-3 a day, but now I have to change immediately after my toddler poops. Because it might fall out due to sagging.very inconvenient. I actually did not want to buy huggies anymore when I found out they will be produced in China. But my partner bought them. So I just used them. Clearly I was right not to buy them in the first place. Why did they have to move the manufacturing to China....China....20 years of trust gone. Bye bye.
- Verified purchase
I wish I could give negative rating to this product. I paid 13.99$ for a 54 nappy pack size 2 huggies essentials while I pay 9.99$ for a 60 nappy pack size 2 Aldi brand. I thought although I am buying essentials variety, huggies brand would most definitely be better. Guess what I was wrong. Don’t buy this variety. It is a waste of anyone’s money. I have attached the image of the both branda together. Decide for yourselves!
Newborn Ultimates VERY poor quality
I bought these for my daughter's newborn son and she was also gifted some from friends. She has discovered that those still saying made in Australia are ok but if not they leak within 2.5 hours for a 1 week old baby. Not a good start for a new-time mum (and baby) with wet clothes and wet bedding multiple times in a day. She was questioning her own ability to put a nappy on the baby until she experimented with other brands and realised that it was only these Huggies Ultimates that leaked EVERY time. Hopefully Huggies realise that cheaping ou...t with overseas production and subsequent poor quality will ultimately (no pun intended !!) lose them more money than they are saving. My daughter will now NEVER buy Huggies again. She has already found that even homebrand newborn nappies are better than the "new and improved" Huggies. Corporate greed is likely to backfire on the company... What a shame... She is moving to Modern Cloth Nappies (MCNs) which will be better for baby, her budget and the environment.
Newborn baby. These nappies leak alllll the time. They leak from the mostly from the back and the sides, i just put a new nappy on my boy and lasted an entre 10mins. again leaking from back and sides causing me to change his entire outfit again... (rolling eyes).

A leaky disaster
My daughter leaked out of the news one size 1 range all the time and screamed like a banshee every time we had to change her entire outfit. I was going to give up on Huggies but it was suggested I try newborn size 2 because she is a big baby. She leaked out of those as well! I thought it may be the way I’m putting them on. I checked with a few people and it was correct. They leak when my husband puts them on too! Never again!

Constantly leaking and caused severe rashes
Huggies have recently changed their nappies. We were lucky enough to get a couple boxes of the old shape (which were great), but when we started using the new style we were extremely disappointed.
Our son got rashes instantly on his legs, and was leaking with every second nappy.
Safe to say we won't be buying any Huggies brand items from now on.

Not fit for purpose in spite of branding
I had recommendations to avoid these nappies. They are so poor at protecting against leaks that I currently have a 100% strike rate in changing baby clothes. This started from our newborn's very first waste ejection at the hospital and our use of Huggies after a competitor's one we purchased ran out. It's time consuming and laundry detergent wasting for such a poor product that I might as well use a 56L bin liner to cover the baby and would do a much better job. Unfortunately we have a whole large box worth given by good friends that we're stuck with.
My son constantly cries because his diaper and clothes are wet. This diaper is not very sturdy and doesn't keep anything dry. I have to change him tons of times causing me to go through more diapers than I need to which costs more money. I will be switching right back to the Pampers Brand. I should've never left them.
Worst nappies ever! Don't do it to yourself!
I never review things - ever, but these nappies are terrible. Bad fit, once baby is over 3kg and leak consistantly. I feel like huggies owes me an apology from all of the sleep I have lost in the last 24 hours from dealing with a screaming bubba who has woken soaked through after every pee. Going back to Aldi's, which are brilliant. Worst decision to buy a big box of huggies :-(
Rubbish Nappies - Don't fall for the marketing
Regardless of price these nappies are rubbish! I was happy to spend more if the nappy works well and made baby more comfortable. I fell for the marketing and thought these were more technologically advanced - so silly! My baby is of average size and weight with good thick newborn legs and they still leak almost every time- and not just from one place. So many unnecessary clothes changes and extra washing when compared to Aldi's newborn nappies. I never would have bought Aldi nappies if it wasn't for all the positive reviews but when your tired ...and sick of changing clothes unnecessarily you just want something that works well - you don't really care about the brand or price (of which Huggies are more expensive than most other brands we've tried anyway). Don't make the same mistake we did and buy a bulk buy box otherwise you will be throwing them away or trying to use them for other uses - they are no good as nappies! Wetness indicator has never worked once, leaves marks on babies body, leg seam cuts into his skin. Will never buy Huggies nappies again.
Leak often, only for small babies
I was given some Huggies Newborn nappies from a relative and a colleague plus I purchased 2 boxes of Huggies Newborn before the baby was born as they were on sale at Woolies - big mistake. My baby was born 4 kgs and Huggies Newborn nappies were too small for him lengthwise (and around his legs) even though they say up to 5kgs on the package. The nappies were too short for my bub so they leaked almost every time. I gave away the package I opened to a friend and exchanged the 2 boxes I bought at Woolies. I currently use Aldi Mamia newborn nappies and they never leaked!
These nappies were brilliant 3 years ago. Now all they do & are good for is increasing the size of my laundry loads. I don't think my newborn has done one pooh that hasn't resulted in an immediate bath. I'm planning to return the 3 unopened boxes that I have & start using the cheaper brands that actually do the job. A very disappointing Huggies experience.
Expensive & not worth it
Overpriced Nappies that Rely on their Previous Good Name to Sell
We used these for our daughter and were unimpressed so changed brands. When we had our son, our other brand did not make infant nappies so we went back to Huggies. We put the constant leaking down to him being a boy and put up with the numerous clothing changes due to wet and dirty leaks. One day we ran out of Huggies and had some sample packs from another brand. It was only when we used these and there was no more leaking that we realised that the problem was in the Huggies Nappy.
Unfortunately, people still hold Huggies in high regard fro...m their glory days and so buy them thinking that they are purchasing the best for their child. You only need to buy any inexpensive non name brand to realise that Huggies are no better than these - in our case, they were much worse. Cute pics They leak, they are overpriced, poor quality
Worse than home brand
I was given a couple of boxes of these when my son was born. Every change time I had to change his whole outfit as they leaked and blew out every time. I had to take six outfit changes with us every time we left the house. I did not know this was not normal until I ran out of nappies one day and happened to be at ALDI.
What a difference! If you think Huggies ridiculous prices equate to quality, think again, even some home brand nappies I was given performed better than the Huggies. I'm just glad I found out how bad they were before I wasted too much money on them.
Ridiculously overpriced, cheapest budget brands performed better
Changing the sheets twice a night, no thanks
We bought a box of huggies after using them in the hospital, but after four nights of wetting through I gave up! Really disappointing, and a waste of money. Switched to baby love and coles brand nappies and haven't changed the sheets once from being wet through. Makes me not want to buy any huggies brand items.
Changing the sheets twice in one night drove me nuts
Leaking was a nightmare
Prior to having our first daughter nearly everyone told me to buy these nappies as they were 'the best'. Right from the start I had Eenees reusable nappies but used the Huggies for whenever I went out. Everytime our daughter did a poo in these nappies I had a blowout - almost without fail. Always up her back and sometimes around the legs. I never had a leak up the back with the Eenees reusable, occasionally something small around the legs. I got to the point that I went away for a holiday and took all my reusable nappies and washed because the ...Huggies were useless. I have nothing good to say about them!! They seem to hold wee OK. If our daughter was wearing a Huggies when she did a poo it was a matter of pick her up, put her in the laundry sink and strip everything off and start over. Terrible.
