Disadvantages: as good as more expensive brands
Having been buying the expensive brands of nappies whilst my son was small I was dubious whether I should down grade when I was trying to lower my shopping bills, however on consideration I decided I would give it a go. I started buying shop brand nappies and found them alright, but of a lower quality somewhat to that of the leading higher priced options on the market, but about a month ago we run out of nappies...ahhhh!!
I rushed to Aldi as that is my closest supermarket and had no option other than to purchase the own brand nappies called mamia. They come in a rather pleasant green plastic packaging with a toddler wearing the nappies printed on the front, much like the other brands available, and they don't look cheap at all, but I reserved judgement until they were actually given a proper test drive so to speak.
I was surprised that they are very good quality, in my opinion on par with the hugely more expensive brands that are on the market. They were £4.99 per packet of 42 which works out around 11.9p each which is fabulous value for money especially in these harsh economic times when the cost of everything is going up. I bought size 5 but there are other sizes available all at around the same price.
The nappies are quite thick to give a high level of absorbency, but they are not too thick so as to be uncomfortable for my little one running around, they have the usual elastic cuffs around the legs for added protection against leaks. They are lovely, soft and breathable so caused no irritation at all, the tabs to secure the nappy around the waist are Velcro style with elastic, stretchy sides for added comfort and ease of use and I found them extremely secure, I had no problems with the Velcro loosening after a while with the movement of my son and boy does he put them through their paces. Even clambering in the park caused no leak issues at all. The waist band is also a soft material and seemed snug and comfortable without having to be tight, and have cute colourful animal pictures around the front of the waistband which my son likes, making appreciative distraction when my son is not in a cooperative mood.
They also stand up to the challenge of keeping my sons bed dry throughout the night, as yet no leaks at all which is absolutely amazing.
Considering the considerable price difference between these and the leading brands on the market, I was incredibly impressed by the lack of difference in quality. My son has not had any issues with discomfort or irritation and I am now converted to these nappies and these will now be my nappies of choice.
The nappies were very absorbent and fitted extremely well and coped extremely well with the vigour's of my 2 year old. They have earned the Mother and baby award best disposable nappy 2010-2011 and silver practical parenting disposable nappy award and were also the LBP winner for their nappy award, so are very highly rated by many leading parenting sources.
I am considerably impressed with these nappies and would highly recommend these to anyone with a very active toddler as they are more than up to the job and are at a fantastic price.
