Best value for money!
These are the best value nappies i have tried! Im not sure what others complained about but i have found these to be perfect for my little one. They fit good on her, the tabs havent broken and we havent ever had a leak (even at night!). Of course if you're willing to spend the big bucks huggies has the extra cute designs and probably a little better with absorbancy & fit but these do the job just great at half the cost (and without leaving crystal things like huggies). The design isnt even that bad either, they are quite neutral and simplistic ...with a little animal print on the tab - i think its good as the colours and designs dont beam through light coloured clothing like some other brands. I also tried mamia as others raved about it but they just didnt fit my baby as well and i found they really had a potent smell to them. Best bit is they're available at woolies so you can grab a pack just while grocery shopping instead of making special trips and they're so cheap you dont have to hunt around for them to be on special! Cheap; easily available; good fit for my baby; tabs are strong; never leaked for me Dont come in boxes
I used the "select newborn" nappies and every nappy used would leak so that each nappy change would also become an entire clothes change for my baby. Even at times, my son would be wet up his back and around his bottom while the nappy would have little wetness to it. Poor quality in absorbency.
Low absorbency nappies
I usually buy these in the walker size on special for around $20/box. I would not contemplate putting using these for any great length of time & especially not overnight, but they are a good day nappy. I only use Huggies at night & they are definitely my favourite nappy, but when we're just spending the day at home, I will use the Woolworths Select nappies. They are quite a bit thinner than Huggies, so when they are wet, you can really feel the difference. That being said, we have not had any leaks. They also seem slightly smaller in size than Huggies in terms of the waist measurement.
Absorbancy is slightly lacking.
I have found that this would have to be my nappy of choice, its nice a soft, price is great and leakage protection is good. Have had no problem with woolworths select nappies with either of my children.
reliable, inexpensive, good leakage protection and simple patern
no dip for belly button
Good price for day time use!
I think the pricing is great for the quality of these nappies. Generally, the absorbency is quite good for day time use / short period of time. I wouldn't use it for overnight though. The only problem I've noticed is that sometimes the wet poo might leak from the back (depending on the position of the baby). But overall, I love these nappies as they are cheap/affordable for day time use. It saves me lots of money for disposable nappies! Would recommend it to friends!
Great price (affordable) & good quality, great for day time use.
Somtimes the wet poo might leak a bit from the back (depends on the position of the baby).
I would recommed people give these nappies a go. They fit well, are absorbant, do not leak and are good value for money. They are also nowhere near as bulky as other brands of nappies, so your baby can move more freely.
These nappies fit my baby really well and allow her to move easily. Whilst I don't think they are quite as absorbant as other brands I have tried, I still think they are good value for money. I have never had any leaks from these nappies and they seem to hold number 2's well.
Not as absorbant as other brands.
These nappies did not seem to keep our darling daughter as dry as other brands. Over time she developed a mild nappy rash she had not had before and her skin seemed more damp when changing her than she had been in other brands. The fit was good and contained all but her biggest "poo-nami" which nothing has been able to contain. If there was no other choice I would get these again but for our daughters comfort I think it is worth a few extra dollars for a better option.
Very Good Price, snug fit
no elastic in waist, not breathable
Cheaper than Huggies, but I'd rather my baby be comfortable & me not have to clean up a mess. Caused extra washing as they always leaked with a dirty nappy.
Cheaper than other brands.
Leaked every time there was a dirty nappy. Didn't draw the moisture away so baby was left with a wet behind where as other brands tend to draw the moisture away from the skin.
These are affordable nappies but they don't feel as nice as some of the name brands. They seem to gape around the top in front unless put on very tight. I find that when put on tightly after a feed, when that feed has been processed the nappy gapes again. The tabs are great and stick well and they are come up quite high. I find they leak more often than other nappies and are difficult to put on. Reasonable option for the budget conscious on the whole.
Larger than other newborn nappies, quite absorbent
Don't fit very well, stiff and difficult to put on.
It worries me that it can cause such a reaction - no other brand has. What is it made from?? a shame as it seemed so great in terms of fit absorbancy
fit really well. absorb really well. great tabs.
EXTREME ALLERGEN - i don't know what is different about these to any other nappy but has caused extreme inflamtion for my child.
I am the fussiest person alive when it comes to my children and the products that I use, I have 2 boys and discovered Select nappies with my youngest, they were recommended to me by my cousin as he used them for his daughters, i was alittle apprehensive at first because its a "cheap" brand (i.e not huggies or treasures etc) but I gave them ago and am 100% happy with my choice.
I tried huggies i love them but not the price! treasures are useless! both my sons wet through them every time! grrrr and sometimes the tabs wouldnt stick properly!.
I change about 8 or more nappies a day and have been really thrilled with this nappy. I would buy this over Babylove any day. Huggies do have a superior absorbency and for that reason I use Huggies at night and for long car trips. As I prefer to change nappies frequently I have saved a lot of money using this nappy without any downside for me or bubs.
The price, extremely cheap when on sale (ie 14c per nappy). Good fit for my son. Love the high back, when on the back seems to sit higher than huggies. The grip tabs work really well too.
The nappy feels a bit lumpy when full. After a big wet poo there is still liquid that hasn't fully absorbed (but this isn't really a problem if you change the nappy straight away).
This brand was perfect for me and my son as we were on a low budget and the fact they were cheap and that you could buy them in bulk (box). I really like the grip tab i never had one that didnt work and i tryed the more expensive brands and found that they were not as good some would not grip and some would break off when i tryed to attach them to nappie. Overall i am very impressed with select nappies and am thankful that they worked and hope they dont ever change them as im planning on using them again.
Cheap and they were the best for me and my son
That they dont still come in the box and they dont have nappie-pants
These are great nappies and definitely have been my first choice for some time now. They are regularly on special where you can buy two boxes for $50 and work out about 34 cents a nappy. Very affordable but the best part is that these nappies are excellent quality. Only occasionally have a leak and that is normally overnight, but most of the time they are leak free and do the job. They also feel quite comfortable on and if you want to save money these are a great nappy to buy.
Often on special, hardly ever leak, do a great job, good quality.
I really like these nappies. I think just about the same quality as huggies and are definitely on par with the Aldi Mamia brand (although the Aldi brand work out to be cheaper when these are not on special). I use a combination of this brand and aldi nappies currently (because I can't always get to Aldi, but Woolies is just up the road). These nappies are generous in size, so although my baby has grown out of the huggies newborn, she is still well and truely fitting into the select newborn size. Highly recommended
Great protection against leaks. Minimal nappy rash. Good value for money.
Only available in woolworths.
