Would never go back
When I found these nappies everything changed! More absorbent that huggies or babylove. Lasts us longer because there’s more than a packet and half the price! Started using these when bub started in size 2 and he’s now size 6!
My baby had blisters because of these nappies!
I’m in complete shock how they can manufacture these nappies. We tried these and found within hours they caused a major rash and chaffed into a blister! How dare you!
Gave my little one nappy rash
We ran out of our usual Woolworths Little Ones nappies and was doing an onlines Coles order so I thought I would give these a try. Right out of the bag they looked poorly constructed. It was thin and flimsy. On the 2nd day my little one had a rash (she rarely ever gets rashes), the rash got worse despite more frequent changes and using Sudocream. By the end of the 2nd day I ditched the Coles. Back to our trusty Woolworths nappies!
Leak every single time, even if my child wets only once (10 months old so not like a big wee) and God forbid if you try to use these as night nappies.
Will end up costing you more in laundry and nappies (as they need changing every single wet, no matter how small)
Purchased for $10.00.
I will never buy these nappies again! Leakage every single night, they smell bad, and they don’t even fit properly.. Bought a size 6 for 2.5 yr old and the tabs are so short, and he’s not even chubby!
Changed, now leaks
Was using Cub nappy pants for ages, Suddenly I bought I pack and found that they were completely different and bam, leaking every night. I've had to go back to Huggies :( which is an obvious bigger expense but there is no way I can be bothered to deal with washing both kid and bed everyday, especially in winter! No way.
The WORST nappies I have ever used
Nappies leak every single night! Will never purchase again. I wanted to like these as they were a great price and are convenient to pick up while shopping but honestly they really are the worst we have tried. It is absolutely horrible to find your baby drenched in urine in the middle of a cold night all because of a cheap nasty nappy. Aldi nappies at the same price were actually really good and we have not had any leaks with these. Save yourself the trouble and do not buy these.
New changes are the worst.
I have alway used Cub nappies and have thought they were brilliant & I also try to shop for Australian made products. Recently, however, I noticed they have changed, a new colour and print on them, but purchased anyway as I still thought they’d be the same great nappies. I couldn’t have been more wrong, the nappies tabs are now so weak they come undone, they don’t fit around the legs at all now, and the absorbency is so poor that they leak straight onto the babies clothing! I have no idea who within the company approved these changes, but clearly not enough testing was done, these need pulling off the shelves. I’ve just read another review to say they are no longer made in Australia. What a shame.
Terrible nappy doesn't keep baby dry
Brought cubs size 2 for my 3 month old, terrible absorbancy. The nappy does not keep baby dry, went through twice as many nappies as usual. Would not recommend or buy again.
Poor quality unpleasant odour.
Have used these for some time but that was in the past. NO MORE. The quality has deteriorated and they smell of what seems like chemicals. When made in Australia they were good. Now they are made overseas and unfortunately not good at all. I will try Aldi because I have been told they have nappies made in Australia.
Purchased in March 2020 for $10.00.
New design is horrible
We always used cub nappies on our kids one nappy lasted a whole night without any leaks now after the design change we have leaks every night even if I do a nappy change in the middle of the night
So disappointed I know have to find a new brand of nappies or go cloth from now on
Change back to the old design!!
I’ve been using the cub nappies for over a year for both my toddler and baby, and had loved them. However, since the new design they are the worst!! They leak, cause rashes, sit awkwardly and just generally suck :( I’ve tried changing the size to see if that would help, but sadly not. It’s so disappointing as the ALDI nappies went the same way with their redesign and now I need to find another brand for both kids.
Junior nappies pull ups!!!
The new design for junior nappies pull ups is 100% terrible the worst ever. I have been purchasing these nappies for some time now and now they are the worst ones I have ever purchased for my son.
They leak an do not last all night like the old design did. They last about maybe 6-8 hrs. The sides of the new design are easy to rip apart an then you can't use them :/
Really not happy with the change of nappy!
Did you change it to save money on cost as the pull ups were fine before.
Purchased in March 2020 for $10.00.
Nappy Rash Inducing
If you're reading this and you have already bought these nappies, it is too late. If you're reading this and have yet to buy these nappies, turn back now. These nappies are honestly terrible. The only redeeming quality about these is the price and well, you get what you pay for.
Our 13 month old daughter got really bad nappy rash from these. Purchased them and within two days, severely bad nappy rash (which she has never had before, ever). It looked like she had been burned, disappointing that Coles continues to sell these horrendous nappies.
Bad skin reaction
I have used these for my son since he was born during the day. Never had a problem until the recent change! I opened the new pack yesterday, put the nappy on and changed him less than an hour later as he had done a poo and he has a severe skin reaction all over the back of his bum, all the way up into his privates. I will never purchase this product again!!
Bring back the old CUBS
During the night my baby now wakes up completely saturated from leakage. Never used to happen with previous style of CUBS. Tabs don’t stick well. Not as much give with elastic. Terrible terrible new style which causes mums and bubs unnecessarily, hassle and stress. Unpleasant to use by far.
Why did you change the nappies!!!
I tried so many different nappies for my baby boy, he’s a bit bigger for his age (6months) and cub were the best, I loved how they fit him and how they absorbed. The price was perfect
But you change the nappy and now they don’t fit him, tabs don’t stick... why would you change something that was so well received before!
I’ll be looking for a new brand that suits my boy better.
New design and material are terrible
Used to be so durable, now feel horrible, are less absorbent, don't fit like the original design did, and look old and saggy after a tiny wee. Tabs don't stick, sides don't stretch, nappy is thin and cheap and less nappies per pack! My son could last all night in an original, now wakes up with wet clothes. Doesn't absorb newborn poos either. Bad business decision. I will be changing brands.
Purchased in February 2020.
