      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Huggies sell up my local corner shop and my husband has bought them back a few times in an emergency. They always seem to leak. I have used the newborn Huggies and the size 3s. Both have poor absorbency and are very prone to leakage. My daughter's clothes have ended up almost ruined by stubborn yellow stains. I do not own a washing machine in our flat so I have to soak all of my daughter's soiled clothes in a sink full of water until my weekly wash day. When I use store brand nappies I do not have this problem. Only nappies I have had issues with are Pampers and Huggies! Save your money.

      A great nappy

      Huggies Newborn Nappies Firstly, I am quite surprised at the other reviews on this particular product a lot of them are only one or two stars. Personally I am glad I did not read these reviews before trying them for myself, with everything people have different views and I totally respect that but my experience of these nappies have been first class. My son was born on 21/10/2012 and he has been in a mixture of Pampers and Huggies wipes, my preferred brand is Huggies but it is touch and go whether we can get access to these nappies due to the location in which we live. Furthermore, I am upset at Huggies decision to stop sales of Huggies nappies in the UK from sometime this year, they are still going to be selling their brand wipes but not the nappies however, they will be continuing to sell them in the United States. It's a shame to see what I feel is a good product, disappear from our shelves completely. Anyway on to the actual product you can purchase these nappies in different pack sizes, which like many nappies is highly efficient as you can purchase how many you can afford/need at that particular time. I personally buy the economy packs which have the largest amount of nappies as not only does it work out cheaper but I have to bulk buy so it makes thinks easy for me than having to deal with lots of small packs. The nappies hold quite a bit of fluid so they are fine for them to go all night through without soaking my baby was an average weight at birth and by the second month sleeping the whole night through so I therefore did not want to disturb him. They only start to leak when you are edging closer to the upper weight boundary which is why they give specific weights, so I would not see this as a limitation to the product. The nappies themselves feel of good quality and have not affected my child's skin and he is prone to dry patches etc. They have a Disney motif on the front and the theme continues to the back where the size is also written. The nappies do not give off an offensive smell like some do when they are exposed to urine, so I definitely see this as an extreme positive. For the price of the nappies I think you are getting great value for your money, again as I said before depending on your need/budget there is a pack of nappies with the amount that you need available, more importantly in the UK (at the moment) these nappies are incredibly easy to source and feature in most if not all leading supermarkets and retailers of similar baby products. I don't have any negatives to say about these nappies only that I will miss the product when it is discontinued however, up until that point I will continue to use this product while I still can.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        They are unreliable and I wont use them again

        When I was pregnant with Jayden I spent a lot of the time stocking up on various necessities that I was going to use, mainly through free samples and also by using various coupons, a lot of the coupons I had ran out before Jayden was due so I decided that instead of wasting the coupons I would get all the stuff before he was born so I had it ready. One thing I stocked up quite a lot on was nappies especially as these work out as quite expensive. Now I didn't want to stock up on one type of nappy just in case there was a particular brand that he could not use so I actually ended up with a pile of various different types of nappies to try on him. One of the types I ended up with three packs of were Huggies Newborn Nappy, now I had no idea about this sort of thing before Jayden was born and I had no idea what was going to suit him, however these looked quite promising, they were suitable for newborn babies so seemed perfect for what I would be needing. Packaging The Huggies Newborn Nappies come wrapped in a cream coloured plastic which simply opens by tearing along one of the sides, the nappies are packed tightly into the plastic style bag so you do get quite a few nappies inside the small parcel shape. On the front and back of the packet are the words Huggies Newborn written at the top in bold purple and white writing, just underneath it states that they are made with organic cotton. Towards the left hand side of the packet is a picture of a nappy which demonstrates that there is a cut out part where the nappy covers the belly button, this is designed to allow it to heal properly. The only other information on the front and back of the packet is the amount of nappies in the packet and also the size of the baby they are aimed at, the rest of the front and back is taken up with a picture of a baby curled up and wearing a purple hat. To be honest I was a bit surprised at the lack of information about the nappies there was on the packaging, however there were various symbols to indicate that the nappies are leak proof, flexible, clinically tested and are approved by the British Skin Foundation. There is no other information on the packaging other than advertising other Huggies products. The Nappies When I got one of the nappies out of the packet I was already expecting them to be a bit on the big side, although Jayden was a decent weight at 7lb 3 he is quite a small baby, however all I have to do is wrap the tabs tightly around his middle and they are fine. The nappies are made of a soft cotton type material, they are white in colour with pastel green edges, the front of the nappy has a picture of Winnie the Pooh and a picture of a tree and a blue bird on the back, the pictures are unisex so could be used for girls and boys. The legs of the nappies are elasticised to help them fit securely and inside the nappy is a green strip which goes down each side front and back, this is designed to keep any mess inside the nappy, there are two little sticky tabs at the back which secure the nappy around your babies waist. I was quite surprised at how thin the nappies felt, obviously I didn't want anything too bulky but I was expecting something a bit thicker, the thinness of the nappy meant that they fitted well under any clothes I dressed him in and they were not bulky for him to wear but I was expecting something a bit thicker, however the main thing was they were absorbent and kept Jayden dry and comfortable. Sizes Huggies Newborn Nappies come in different sizes, all indicated by a number, I purchased size 1 which is the smallest size and suitable for babies weighing between 4 and 11lb, you can buy these nappies in a further two sizes, size 2 and size 3, I went for the smaller ones even though both sizes 1 and 2 cover Jaydens weight at 7lb 3, however despite him being a decent weight he is quite a small baby, most of his clothes are too big for him so I guessed that this would be the case when it came to nappies, although I didn't actually know this at the time of purchasing them it was more of a lucky guess. Price & Availability Huggies Newborn nappies are available from most supermarkets as well as various other shops such as Superdrug and Boots, however I purchased my packet of Huggies from my local Tesco, I purchased a packet of 27 nappies although I could have bought a larger packet. This size pack cost just £3.71, although I got mine cheaper with the use of a coupon, I also got one packet of these nappies with a Huggies starter pack, again I didn't pay for the starter pack as I had a coupon to get this for free. The price of these nappies seems to be pretty average compared to other brands. My Opinion I decided to give these nappies a try on Jayden especially as they had the cut out part for his belly button which hadn't quite healed up yet. When I put the nappy on him it did seem to fit quite well, the sticky tabs held it in place easily and the elasticised legs gave him more movement, and the material felt soft against his skin. The fact that the nappies were quite thin as I have said meant that they fitted well under his clothes and didn't seem too bulky between his legs, he seemed quite happy and comfortable in them. The first time I used the nappies I was pleased with them, they held the contents of his nappy well and the nappy remained in place despite him kicking his legs about. Because they seemed to work well I decided to carry on using them, however after that first nappy I became very disappointed with them, After a short amount of time of wearing another of the Huggies Newborn nappies I picked Jayden up and noticed that he felt rather wet on the back of his trousers, after removing them to investigate I noticed that the nappy had leaked meaning his vest and trousers were wet and needed changing, I didn't think too much of it and thought I probably hadn't fastened it quite right or as securely so I decided to give them another chance making sure I had definitely secured it properly. However just a short time after I noticed that the same thing had happened and Jayden had wet trousers, this time it had soaked up the back of his dungarees, rather fed up with the nappies I quickly removed it and replaced it with a different brand nappy and changed Jayden into yet another outfit. I have to say I was very disappointed with the Huggies Newborn Nappies I gave them several chances and each time they leaked, for me it just meant more washing every time the nappy leaked but mainly I was not pleased at the thought of Jayden being wet and uncomfortable all the time, needless to say I did not use the rest of the packet, I had a further two packets in my stock pile of nappies so I took them back to the shop and changed them for a different brand. I would definitely not recommend Huggies Newborn Nappies, whilst they appeared to be ok to start with and I liked the flexibility of them I did not like the fact that they leaked every time, a nappy is supposed to keep your baby dry and comfortable, this was certainly not the case with these, I certainly will not be buying these in the future.

          Cute nappies, shame they leak. Don't go there

          I really cannot believe that Huggies are the top selling disposable nappy; I used them for my first child back in 2006 and they were rubbish; leaky and expensive. I used them second time round this year and they were even more rubbish! I bought two packets of Newborn size (size 1, 4- 11lbs) when I was pregnant with my second baby, a boy. They had won the Mother and Baby Gold Awards 2010/2011, so I figured they must be pretty good. These nappies are £3.71 in Tesco (I found here the cheapest), but at the time they had a 3 for 2 offer, so I bought 3 packs of 27. I took these into the hospital with me, as i was planning on using these from birth, then switch to reusable nappies when he was a little older. Please note, I am not reviewing the Huggies that have the hole cut out for the umbilical stump; they had not come out at the time I had my son (July 2011). Initially like the nappies. They had a really cute Winnie the Pooh graphics, which were varied on each one. They fit my newborn son as well as any nappy would a newborn! I must say, they felt a little bit papery which gave me the impression they were a bit cheap; although this is not the case as nearly £4.00 a packet! They were very soft, however. Cuddling my newborn baby in a state of bliss, to my horror I found that he had a wet bottom. Even though he was only a few hours old, his first wee had soaked through his vest and babygro and onto me. Not a very happy mummy. I was in hospital a few days, and each time I changed his nappy he'd wee and the nappy would leak. I asked my husband to bring in Pampers, and lo and behold no problems. I was pretty disappointed with these nappies, needless to say. I had initially liked the fit and the ultra cute Pooh Bear design on them. But the leaks were a nightmare, and for the cost I wasn't going to buy any more!

          A good reliable secure nappy for a newborn

          I notice that there appears to be mixed feelings about Huggies nappies in comparison to other brands such as the well known Pampers, and so I decided to share my own experience of using Huggies newborn size 1 nappies. Like many other mothers, during pregnancy, you are inundated with vouchers and coupons offering you free or money off packs of nappies, and obviously anyone with a bit of sense would use these to stock up, and so my husband and I did. In fact, we actually have quite a range of both huggies and pampers nappies in various sizes. Huggies newborn size 1 nappies are aimed at babies between the weight of 4 - 11 lbs, and with my baby only just over the 8lb mark at the moment, I expect to be using these for some time yet, as they are still relatively big on her. These huggies newborn nappies come with a disney design at the front, that doesn't really make much difference to a newborn baby but is pretty to look at for the parents. More recent versions of this newborn nappy also come with a v shape design at the front to allow room for the umbilical cord and clamp that hangs down over that first 10 days or so. We found this a useful addition, as with the less recent version we were always trying to avoid the cord, but at the same time make sure the nappy was secure enough on our daughter. These nappies are very easy to use, and my husband and I can practically put on a nappy with our eyes shut now. Only once in all the packs we have used so far have we had a dud nappy, one where the sticky fastening was not actually sticky. Like most other nappies there is a little frill around the edge of the nappy to help absorb and avoid leakage, which should be pulled out. So far, in all the nappies we have went through of these huggies newborn, only once have we had some poo on her vest that got out of the nappy, and that was partly because she wriggles so much when you are trying to put on her nappy that it wasn't securely enough fastened - other than that we have had absolutely no leakage from these nappies whatsoever. As I said at the beginning, I bought both pampers and huggies in the newborn size, and I did use a few of the pampers. The problem I currently have with the pampers nappies is that despite them being designed for newborns as well, they are far too big for my daughter and the nappy practically hung off her, and we really didn't feel it was a good fit, and so stopped using these in the meantime. All in all, I understand that some people are not keen on huggies, but I have found them to be very reliable and easy to use so far. These nappies are still big on my newborn but are a secure enough fit to ensure there is no leakage. They are also very absorbent, and my newborn doesn't make any fuss if she has a wet nappy and so I can only assume that she is comfortable as the nappy absorbs the liquid well. I will continue to use Huggies as I have been very pleased so far.

            I would never recommend or use again

            I am mother to two small babies. One is 15 months and the other 4 months. With my first baby, I was unsure of which nappies to use and everyone gave me conflicting advice. I decided to try Huggies as I had loads of vouchers from the Bounty packs the midwife gives out. I also bought the Huggies Starter Kit at the Asda baby event because it was cheap and came with Disney socks. The Huggies nappies are cute, they have cute little characters on them so initially I was pleased. However, shortly after I started to use them I found that my daughter was wet. As a new mother I doubted myself but it happened quite a few times and I realised that the nappies were just not absorbent enough. Therefore I switched to another brand which gave me no problems. When I had my second baby, I received Huggies nappies as a gift and thought I would give it another go. I found the same problem and had to change my baby more often to stop her becoming wet.

              Avoid

              In late March, I gave birth to my lovely daughter, and throughout my pregnancy I was given many freebies, all designed, I'm sure, with the intent that I continue purchasing the product throughout my child's early years. One of these freebies was Huggies - just buy a pack of Huggies Newborn Size 1 and get a free Huggies Newborn Starter Set (wipes, a hat, and another box of nappies) for free. As the Huggies were around £3.50 I thought this a good deal. I also was given numerous individually wrapped Pampers size 1 in Bounty packs. When my daughter was born I initially used the Pampers nappies as their individual wrapping made them convenient for taking to the hospital, with the intention of moving onto my packs of Huggies when they ran out. I was very pleased with the Pampers, they were well fitting, watertight and suited my daughter well. Unfortunately I cannot say the same for the Huggies at all. Even though the newborn size is stated to be the correct one for her weight, I found that even when the tabs on the sides touched in the middle, there was far too much 'gape' around the waist (and therefore, she wasn't watertight when laid horizontally). This meant that during the few days we attempted to use them, there were numerous occasions that my poor daughter leaked all over herself, her clothes, her daddy and myself. Being covered in poo - not nice. I also found that they were no-where near as absorbent as the Pampers, meaning that urine especially seemed to sit much closer to the skin - so my daughter's bottom was red and constantly wet and wrinkled when using these nappies. In terms of looks, they aren't as visually appealing to me (they have a Winnie the Pooh design on the front, but it's rather faded, and a 'dimpled' pattern around the waist). The price in terms of it's competitors is fair, however even on offer, I cannot say I will ever buy them again as they just do not cut it in terms of reliability. Unfortunately I have about 30 of them left, and at the moment we are using them for 'short uses' - but we cannot rely on them for going out of the house, when we have guests, or for when we are dressing her in her best clothes. I cannot recommend these nappies whatsoever - they just don't do the job. My daughter doesn't do any more in her nappy than any other newborn but the Huggies nappies just don't cut the mustard. I cannot imagine any nappy being worse, to be honest, and wish that I'd tried one or two before ending up with 64 of them! Considering they are one of the brand leaders I can't see how a supermarket own brand would be any worse than these. Many of my friends also say the same of Huggies nappies, so I don't think it's just an individual case. Huggies Newborn... my advice is, try Pampers, they're far more reliable.

                A good nappy that does the job!

                I had my daughter 2 weeks ago and was given loads of nappies by family and friends. I had already decided before my daughter was born to use Pampers because the reviews on Huggies didn't fill me with confidence. As I had 6 packets of these I packed one in my hospital bag. The standard sized packet of this size Huggies contains 27 nappies and fits baby's weighing 2-5kg which is 4-11lbs. They cost around £3.75 in supermarkets and Boots, there are normally offers on though. These nappies are made from organic cotton and Huggies claim that they 'provide pure and gentle care for little bottoms they also have a breathable cover and a double action absorbent system draws wetness away from baby's delicate newborn skin and keeps it locked away' The nappies themselves have Winnie the Pooh graphics printed on the front and back. They also have a stretchy waistband and legs to contain leaks and provide flexibility. When my daughter was born she was 8lb and I found that these nappies were a little big for her. Considering they are from 4lb they were rather bulky, I had to fasten the tabs over each other to get them to fit securely on her waist. They were however really absorbent, as my daughter is breastfed her poos are really runny and these nappies contain that really well. The also have double protection around the leg area to prevent leaks. I haven't had any leaks yet and my daughter is a right wriggler. The nappies are made of really soft material and haven't irritated my daughters skin at all. The nappies also fasten really well, you can adjust the sticky tabs and they will restick really easily, which was ideal for me as she was my first I didn't have much experience of putting a nappy on before! I would give these nappies 4 out of 5 they are a lot bulkier than Pampers, but I would happily buy them again especially as my Bounty pack and Emma's diary have given me a load of vouchers for them.

                  Huggies seriously need to improve their nappies FAST

                  I'm not exaggerating when i say how bad these nappies are, i've tried so many brands from the cheapest of cheap supermarket brands right the way up to the top notch expensive make brands and Huggies are by far the worst. I received so many vouchers and Huggies freebies when i was pregnant with my son so i ended up with loads of these Huggies newborn nappies and what a load of rubbish they are. They leak so badly and get saturated really fast, much faster than any other brand of nappies. My son would sometimes only have them on an hour and he would feel soaked right through to his clothes. Asda's & Tesco's nappies work much better than these! Even if my baby did want to have a long sleep at night time he would have no chance with how often he needed to be changed when wearing these Huggies nappies. The only good thing i can find to say about these nappies is that they have a nice design on them ... big wow. I advise parents against buying Huggies, their quality is quite simply shocking for how popular a brand it is. A pack of 27 is almost £4, what an absolute rip off. I'd probably be better of wrapping toilet roll round my babys bum!

                  try them but don't buy loads like we did!

                  This is a review of Huggies Newborn nappies. Cost I purchased a few newborn packs whilst pregnant using various money off vouchers but when I started using these nappies I wished I hadn't. A pack of 27 costs around £3.50 before coupons, discount or special offers. Brand I had heard about Huggies, seen the adverts and believed them to be a decent brand. I wish I'd read the reviews on here because I totally agree with them... one word: leaky!! Leaky I noticed a few times my baby would get a wet spot on her side where the nappy leaked upwards. I've been changing her every 4 hours or more often if she cries so it's not like she is sat in a wet nappy for long. The wet sides meant a change of clothes too so it is a major factor when buying nappies to get non leaking ones! Presentation The Huggies were easy to put on the baby with the Velcro style tape on the sides easy to adhere and adjustable. The ones I got had a feint picture of Winnie the Pooh on them. Fit These were slightly awkward around the newborn's cord and clip. We had to fold them down to avoid rubbing but it was a little difficult, especially when the baby was wriggling around, making her nappy move. Material Huggies feel quite nice and soft. If it wasn't for the leaks I'd be happy to buy more but we seem to have had more success with Pampers. Future? I will probably try Huggies again in a bigger size when my baby is bigger to see if they fit better. Verdict I think every baby is different shape wise and you have to keep an open mind to nappy brand. My advice is to move on and try something else if the brand you're using isn't working for you. Huggies newborn are not for us and no further coupons will tempt me!

                    Make sure its secure!

                    As a first time mum I had no idea about nappies and which brand to opt for and there were a lot of opinions out there. When I was pregnant i received money off coupons for Huggies and also through the many baby clubs so each time I had a voucher I stocked up on a pack of nappies. My son is a long, thin baby who wriggles immensly when having a nappy changed and he also fills the nappy like a trooper with smelly runny poo and lots of wees! In the hospital I had taken Huggies Nappies in my changing bag and whilst there I received a Bounty pack with some pampers nappies so used them both. I had been warned that Huggies nappies didn't contain the smell of wee or poo and this had put some friends off them and also that they leaked, I decided to give them a try and see how I got on. During our time in hospital I got on well with the HUggies and having never changed a nappy before I seemed to be doing well but when we got home it all seemed to change and each time we put a nappy on him when he did anything it leaked! We decided to not use them and switched to the stock of Pampers that I had also stocked up on meaning that I had 5 packs of Huggies to use. Hubby point blank refused to use them as he was fed up of Alex sitting in his own waste when we were out in the pram and asleep so we couldn't tell of the situation he was in, so when I had some clothes to return to Asda I decided to take two packs of the nappies back and exchange them for another brand leaving me with just 2 full packs and the pack that was open. After a week we stopped using Huggies as they just didn't seem to suit Alex's bodyshape very well and they seemed a lot bulkier than the pampers which I didn't like especially as they didn't seem to contain the waste. The nappies are soft and contain plenty of stretch, the two tabs on either side are strong and we have never had them come unstuck which is a plus but sometimes I struggled to open the tab when fastening the nappy as they occasionally are a little too adhesive! What I like about the nappies is that they have a Winnie the pooh design and they are very soft with plenty of areas where there is extra stretch which is good for an active baby. The problem with the nappies as I mentioned before is that they really do not protect baby.....or so I thought, I realised I needed to use the nappies I had taken out of the packet before we could move onto Size 2 as Alex was a way off upgrading to the larger nappy. I decided I would use Huggies whilst at home so I could keep an eye on any accidents and spillages in the nappies and make sure Alex was changed pretty much straight away. One day it clicked to me why they were always leaking. With all nappies they have an internal frill which is meant to contain baby's poo and prevent it from leaking, when I had previously been putting these nappies on Alex the frill had been flat and not covering the bits it needed to thus causing the leak of poo. As soon as I made sure when I opened the nappy out that I stretched it and the frill went just inside his thighs we had no more leakages!! Success and the nappies soon got used without us having any little mishaps. Huggies are not my first choice and I still prefer Pampers for Alex they do not seem as rough at the fastenings as the Huggies Nappies do and they are definately not as bulky. Huggies do however give off an unpleasant chemical type smell when he does a wee and it really does not smell to pleasant and we always try to change him as soon as we can. I would definately say give Huggies a try if you haven't tried them you will either love them or hate them but find which brand suits you and try not to bulk buy until you know which brand you prefer.

                      Advantages

                      Disadvantages

                      I've had my opinions about Huggies changed, thanks to these new newborn nappies.

                      I've always been a Pampers mum and both of my older boys wore Pampers pretty much from birth until fully toilet trained, albeit dallying with other brands from time to time. My youngest son also started off in Pampers without any problems initially but I found that, once I moved him on to Size 2, they didn't really fit his body shape very well and almost every poo ended up leaking up his back! In frustration, I decided to give Huggies Newborn nappies another try to see if they would be a better fit. Fortunately, despite my previous negative experiences with Huggies, these Newborn nappies seemed to fit my son's proportions perfectly and offered a tight, but not uncomfortable, fit all around his bottom, back and limbs. I was pleased to find that these particular nappies didn't gape at all at the back which is where I was having the problems with the Pampers. With previous children I found the opposite to be true and Huggies used to leak both poo and wee at almost every change! I'm not sure whether this difference is simply down to differences in body shape and my boys' proportions, such as width and length or to more recent improvements in the performance of the nappy itself. Whatever the reasons, I've been pleasantly surprised and have now become a converted Huggies fan! I don't find the sticky tabs on these to be quite as stretchy as the Pampers New Baby brand but they stretch sufficiently to form a secure fit around my baby, without leaving any red marks or causing any irritation. I'm also pleased to confirm that these haven't caused any soreness or irritation around my little one's delicate little bottom, even during overnight use. The all-important factor is that the number of leaks has reduced dramatically as these are such a good fit! I think I've dealt with maybe two or three leaks over the past month which has been a huge improvement. The range certainly seems to have repackaged since I last tried Huggies. The packs now feature a beautiful picture of a naked newborn baby all curled up in the foetal position and come in sizes 1-3, so from birth up to a maximum of 20lbs. I have found that the size three's are not as widely available as the smaller sizes in my local supermarkets, although they are listed on both Tesco and the Boots website. The packaging also boasts how these are made with organic cotton which did confuse me a little as I wasn't expecting a standard brand to include organic material and thought this was a new premium eco-friendly variety. The nappies certainly come with a premium price tag. These don't seem to be on promotion as frequently as Pampers (certainly in Morrisons where I tend to shop) and I ended up paying the full price of £5.97 for just 35 nappies (size two) which is considerably more than I usually pay for Pampers on offer. In use, I can't tell any real difference in the feel or appearance of the nappy itself, other than the familiar Disney Winnie the Pooh images are considerably more muted than most of the bright, colourful images I've come to expect. I'm not sure why they've chosen these very pale images - perhaps to empathise the environmentally friendly organic materials? I can't imagine many newborn babies get over-stimulated by the pictures on their nappies! I didn't think I'd be persuaded to change nappy brand allegiance at this stage but my recent experiences with Huggies have certainly made me think again. I'd advise any parents to consider switching brands to Huggies, even if they've previously had a negative experience. I'll certainly continue to use Huggies in the future although I'm reluctant to pay the full price so I'll be looking out for offers.

                        Definately not worth the money

                        Most of my family have used Huggies nappies on their babies so when I was pregnant I went out and bought quite a few packs of these but wished I hadn't. I did not like these nappies at all but I did persist with using them for a few weeks. These nappies are an expensive brand so I though they would be very good quality but I found this not to be the case. These nappies feel very thin and papery and not at all soft which I found a bit strange for newborns as I wouldn't like that against my skin never mind a baby. The worst thing about these nappies is that they leaked all the time. I was changing my baby all the time but they still always seemed to leak so it made my baby uncomfortable and I had to keep changing his clothes even more often than usual. Also the fit of them was never any good they seemed very big when he was a newborn even though he was an average size of nearly 8 pounds but they never seemed to look like they would keep the contents inside them as there seemed to be lots of gaps. The only thing I really liked about them is that the design on them is nice as it is Winnie the Pooh and looks cute but apart from that there was nothing good about them. These nappies are no good and as they are more expensive than supermarket brands and are no better so definately not worth the money.

                          worth a go

                          Huggies Newborn Size One Nappies Before my daughter arrived I had bought several different types of nappies and as I had coupons with money off Huggies I decided to give them a try. I bought the size one as my daughter was small when she was first born. Size one is for babies from 2-5kg (4-11lbs). I always had heard that Pampers was better than Huggies though I still thought there was no harm in giving them a go. **WHAT IS THE PRODUCT** It is nappies that are produced by Huggies. They are designed for newborn babies and are disposable. So once you are finished using them you throw them away. The nappies are made from organic cotton so they are soft and gentle on your newborn's skin. This is important as a newborn's skin can get irritated very easily. **PACKAGING** The nappies come in a bag and are tightly wrapped. They are in the shape of a rectangle as they are squashed together. The bag is plastic and can be ripped open with your hands when necessary. The packaging is cream in colour and gives the impression that the products are natural and soft and fluffy. The Huggies logo is on the front in bright blue with a handprint above. There is a picture of a baby lying on what looks to be a soft towel looking content. The size of the nappies is inside a blue duck at the top right hand corner. **PRODUCT** These nappies are very cute as they have Winnie the Pooh on the front in nice natural colours (cream and green). It is neutral so they would suit a boy or a girl. To touch these nappies are soft on the outside and are perforated with different designs. The inside is equally as soft and you feel confident that it is soft against your baby's skin. They have stretchy bands at the side (which go around the legs) to try and stop leakage. These bands are pastel green. Along the back there is a stretchy band so you can securely attach them to your baby. **MY OPINION** These nappies cost £3.75 for a pack of 27 so that is roughly 14 pence per nappy. I feel that this is good value for money as I find these nappies are brilliant. I never get any leaks and they hold substantial amounts of liquid. It's the only nappy that I would put on at night time to keep my child dry. The nappy draws the liquid away from the baby's skin so I find that my daughter's skin doesn't get irritated when using these nappies. When I am using these nappies I don't have to clean clothes more often like I do with other brands as her clothes do not get soiled. My daughter is very fine and these nappies fit very snugly on her without marking her skin. This may be why they do not leak. They are a great fit all round. I find that the nappies are soft to touch and don't irate my daughters skin. This is great and even if they are wet they still don't cause any irritation. I feel that these are one of the best nappies that I have used and suit my daughter perfectly. They fit my daughter better than the Pampers do. I feel that they are a great price as they are good quality and they do their job very well. I wouldn't use any other nappy during the night as they work well if your child has to sleep wearing them and may not be changed during the night as they are sleeping through the night. I would recommend these to anyone as they have worked very well for my daughter. Maybe for different babies they may not work as well as they are a different shape. I feel they are definitely worth while trying out.

                            not very suitablke for my daughter but a nice gesture to give me money off vouchers!

                            When my daughter was first born i took the desicion to start using huggies nappies. The nappy was good at holding everything inside and not exploding and they had a cute design on the front. I then started noticing that after a few weeks the strip that goes round the back of the nappy which is in contact with my little girls back was not coming away so easy. I then picked up my daughter and looked on her back and noticed that the strip was practically glued to her back. I tried to ease it away from her skin but the more i pulled, the more it pulled on her skin. I had to wet the back of the nappy with water and slowly ease it of her back that way. I immediately stopped using the nappies anbd contacted huggies. I told them of the problems I was having. They replied back (not so speedily, approximately 3 months later!) and told me that they were gong to send me a voucher in the post. Then about 3 weeks later i recieved two vouchers for huggies products which entitled me to £6 off each. I then tried another pack of huggies nappies on my daughter and they were fine.
