Have used Aldi nappies for my previous two kids but never the newborn ones. Tried recently for third child after using Huggies for first 5 weeks. Had no nappy rash with Huggies. Within a couple of days of using Aldi ones, my baby had developed bad nappy rash. Despite persistence for a few days with generous and frequent applications of Sudocream, the rash continued and didn't improve. Putting it down to Aldi ones being less absorbent. Will be going back to Huggies newborn.

Bought these on recommendation.
They are just plain bad. Wee constantly leaks, poor design allows for poor absorption. Wee moves from front to back and leaks from legs and top.
Purchased in February 2020.
about right for what you pay
We were told these nappies are better than the top brands but unfortunately that isn't the case at all.
They are thin which can cause leak issues. I've read a bit about Aldi changing the design, maybe thats the ones we have as work collegues used the aldi branded nappies for their kids (now in their teens) who originally recommended them.
i would potentially use them only during the day time as bubs nappy gets changed more frequently so absorpution / leak issues would be minimised otherwise stick brands that specialise within the industry.
nappy pattern and colour
These nappies have proven to be reliable and cost better value than most. My only complaint is the colour of the 5-8kg line. It is hideous! The yellow pattern on the nappies is an exact match for baby poo and looks like my baby girl is a mess! I would really like to see some thought go into a colour change by the manufacturer Otherwise I am very satisfied with no leakage and no skin irritation.
Cheap but effective! No leaks
We purchased these nappies before my son was born and when he arrived he was 2.67kg and the Aldi nappies looked much bigger than the Huggies ultimate so we used the Huggies first until he got a little bigger. We started trying the Aldi nappies when my son was about 6 weeks old and 3.32kg. We haven’t had any trouble with leakage - they fit him well and they keep even the biggest poo-nami in! Haha I would recommend them to everyone- I’m going to save so much money over time by buying these. The good thing is that I don’t have to wait for them to go on sale and buy in bulk either, just buy 28 at a time.
Purchased in June 2019 at Fairy Meadow for A$3.99.
Perfect and cheap!!
I've tried huggies and little one as well but aldi new born nappy is the best for my little boy. No rash, no leaking. Cheap but excellent! Just need to make sure the new born size is quite small, if your bub have leaking problem maybe need to go up one size.
Way too thin, non absorbent.
Wee totally leaked out, my baby was wet from belly to toes and it had only been half an hour since last nappy change. They were a good fit and nice and cheap but they're not very absorbent at all. I personally will be sticking to buggies during the night and baby love during the day.
I don't like them
I really wanted to like these nappies, as I had read and heard good things about them. Being a 1st time Mum I got a packet of Aldi nappies, Baby Love and Huggies to try. The Aldi nappies are massive on a 3.8kg newborn, compared to the other brands. I have also had leaks and find that moisture isn't absorbed into the nappy, so babys skin is wet when you change him. He gets changed regularly, so it's not a matter of poor hygiene, just, in my opinion, not a very absorbent nappy. For me, Huggies were the best, closely followed by Baby Love.
Good price but Beware reactions
Good price, good fit, Cant comment on leaks because I didn’t get to use hem long enough. tabs are more fiddly to undo than other brands. These caused red irritation in my LO after only a few hours, would have been terrible if I’d used them all night. Googling suggest this is relatively common. Guess it depends on your Bub.
Too big for our 3.4kg newborn
Tried thesefor our newborn after seeing they were recommended by Choice. We found the newborn size was much bigger than comparable brands (Huggies Ultimate, Tooshies, Comfy Bots). Will have to save them for when baby is a bit bigger. Otherwise appear to be a good product, no leaks or nappy rash.
For the price, you can't do better.
We tried several brands and yes the well-known H one was a very good brand but this was right up there (a very close second place). Factor in the price difference and it's a no-brainer. The big boxes are available from time to time and they are a bonus because they are even more cost-effective.
The best and cheapest
By far best quality nappies for quality and value.
Used so many newborn nappies with my son.
These were the only nappies not to soak thru.
No need to wait for a sale. Always a low everyday value price.
Did not have any leaks with thersr nappies.
Pros ...- cheap - great quality and value - nice design - no leaking - no need to wait for a sale - great fit - didn’t have any nappy rash or reactions to nappy. Cons - do smell like wee after awhile but a good cue to change - not environmentally friendly or biodegradable -can only buy at Aldi
- Supafit Newborn
- Verified purchase
Cheaper then other brand but not good as
May be good for others but doesn’t suit my newborn baby. Nappy stick to my baby’s bump which was terrible. Did not happend with other brand. I bought in bulk though will be ok but not good decision. Will suggest you to buy any products in smaller amount then try then buy in bulk.
Not the best product
Husband and I not impressed by these nappies, they smell (even when the nappies are changed regularly) they don't contain all of the urine as it should, and they leak , the only positive aspect is the price, unfortunately I had to buy other brand nappies which cost more and are more affective
Good for wees, no good for poos.
Good for wees as the materials is absorbent, no good for poos. Poo seems to leak to back as there is no pouch to catch poo from leaking. The huggies design has a pouch at the back to prevent leaks to the back. Hoping this brand with incorporate a pouch at the back of its nappy soon.
<4kg poor fit. >4kg very good fit. YMMV.
I initially bagged these nappies as they just didn't fit our son and had frequent blow-outs. Then he hit the 4kg mark and they were great - our preferred nappy (due to better fit/leakage reliability ) until he hit about 5.2kg when he graduated to the next Mamia size up (also very good).
They still feel a bit less absorbant than other brands but the little guy needs changing frequently enough to make that a non-issue for us.
I'll leave my initial review below for transparency's sake:
I wanted to like these more than I do, given the ...price and that they came recommended by several friends. Unfortunately the fit for our 3.9kg 2week old boy just isn't as good as the equivalent Huggies. I've found they absorb less (they get sopping/soak through) and leak more frequently.
Value for money but fit can be better
Experienced leaks especially for poo when bub was 1-3 weeks old but fit became better (less blowouts and leaks!) when bub starting filling out the nappy. Bigger than huggies newborn so it's good to use right before the Infant stage. Price can't be beat but I prefer Babylove for the fit.
Perfect fit and never leaks!
We were using both Mamia newborn and Huggies newborn when our baby girl was born. I love Mamia's design and it fits great on her. The water mark at the front helps identifying if the nappy was wet. It did not leaked once with Mamia comparing to the few accidents we had with Huggins newborn. The only downside was the red mark on baby's thighs when she was getting chubbier.
With very affordable pricing, we recommend Mamia newborn to other new parents.
I found these newborn nappies to be a fantastic price being so cheap and great quality I like how the yellow line turns blue when wet so you can see straight away if nappy is wet. They are the perfect size for a newborn and lasted from 2.5kgs I just folded the top over till my baby reached 4kgs
Great and cheap
We found these nappies at Aldi a bargain. They were so much cheaper than huggies, didnt leak, could hold a fair amount of pee in them, easier velcro tabs to use when your baby is kicking around and visually easier to reconise front and back with the illustrated characters. Cheapest nappies and well worth it.
Questions & Answers
I have opened 2 packets and there were only 26 nappies in each packet but the packaging says there is 28. Anyone counted the nappies before?
