“ Brand: Asda / Type: Nappies „
Before having my first child I did a lot of research and happened to see an article that said Little Angels had been voted the best own brand nappies. So that really decided it for me and I purchased Asdas nappies for my youngest. I then also decided to buy these for my second child who is currently five months old.
The design is not that different from other nappies. The size of the nappy is printed on the back of the nappy in a coloured circle.
The tapes are strong and I have never experienced them coming undone or feeling insecure. The nappies appear to be comfortable and don't leave marks on my childrens legs or stomach. Unlike other nappies I have used from time to time they don't smell. Another supermarket own brand seem to have a very odd smell once the nappy is wet but with Little Angels I have never encountered a smell just from urine.
The one negative with these nappies are they have leaked if my children have done a particularly large poo. They always leak up the back. I always thought I would have had this problem regardless of the brand of nappy as it would be full so I assumed other nappies would have to leak as they would also be full but have since found this hasnt happened with other brands.
Luckily I only encountered leaky nappies when they were very young but I do feel this is a disappointing issue with the asda nappies but with plenty of positives like price, no horrible smell I accepted that as soon as there was movement I needed to run and get them changed to avoid any leaks. Occasionally I get caught out and don't realise they have pooed.
I will stick to these nappies as the price is too good and if i am careful I don't encounter the leaks.
When my daughter was born in 2010, as first time parents, we just went for the brand we heard the most about and straight away started buying Pampers nappies without even considering any other brands. It was when my daughter hit about 6 months that we noticed that my sister in law used Asda's Little Angels nappies and when we asked her what she thought of them she gave them a sparkling review.
Little Angels nappies can be bought priced at £2.57 for newborn size 0, £3.97 for the newborn 1-3 sizes and £5.97 for the comfort dry sizes 3-6. The amount of nappies in each pack is dependant on size;
size 0- 24 nappies
size 1- 44 nappies
size 2- 42 nappies
size 3- 30 nappies
size 3- 56 nappies
size 4- 48 nappies
size 4plus- 44 nappies
size 5- 40 nappies
size 5plus- 36 nappies
size 6- 26 nappies
The comfort dry range is usually in an offer for 2 packs for £10. The sizes are determined by weight which for the newborn range is up to 9kgs and the comfort dry is anything above that. Asda also do a 'first pants' range which I am currently using now that my daughter is out of nappies during the day but not at night yet so I will probably review these at a later date.
Little angels nappies are hypoallergenic. They have an 'ultra absorbent core' to prevent leaks and the material around the legs is stretchy which is also aimed to prevent leaks but I also find it means they are comfortable on my child's legs and not too tight, they are also able to use their legs more freely without the nappy being irritating- a must when your child first starts to crawl!
I am so pleased we chose to try these nappies, we've never looked back. It is clearly stated on the front of the packaging that these nappies are regularly tested against the leading brand and this you can tell. Moving from pampers onto these we found no difference. We've had no problems with leaks or nappy rash at all.
We recently had our second child and we didn't hesitate to buy him Little angels newborn nappies, he is 9 weeks old and so far we have no problems with these for him either.
I give these nappies 5 out of 5 and they are fully deserving, I have no complaints about the price and have nothing to moan about really!
A must try for any parent!
After always being a fan of Pampers, I was recommended by a friend to give these Asda nappies a go.
I was a bit dubious at first as I had tried many different brands and none had been as good as Pampers. When I purchased my first pack, my son was in size 3. There was 48 nappies in the pack priced at £5.97 or 2 packs for £10. I nearly always get the 2 packs for £10.
The pack is green and white (which I found similar to Pampers) with the Little Angels logo across the top.
The packet is easy to open, with perforated markings around the top and also an easy to carry handle. The nappies actually look very similar to pampers apart from the trademark "little angels" stamped onto the back of the nappies, I don't think you'd notice a difference otherwise. The have a white outside and a pale green tinge to the inside.
The legs are elastic ages for flexibility and they are dermatological my tested.
My baby wears these nappies for 12 hours every night and even after numerous bottles he's still yet to have a leaky nappy. They keep him completely dry and contain most of the odour. He has also never suffered from nappy rash since we have been using these nappies. The sticky tabs have a good hold and can be undone a couple of times before losing their stickiness, good if you need to check baby or put the tabs too low/high and need to readjust.
The thing I have noticed is they do have a slight chemical type smell to them. Whilst this is not too off putting it's not exactly pleasant and I've only noticed this odour when buying the cheaper nappies. Although it can't be smelt once the nappy is on.
In my opinion they are fantastic value for money and I would recommend them to all parents.
FIRST LOOK - We was wary at first about trying these nappies as we had no success with other stores own brands, but after hearing some good reviews we thought we would give them a go and I have to say they are the best. The packaging isn't that great to be honest and it's nothing special but they do the job.
PROS - They don't leak well we have found they don't anyway! We have tried expensive nappies, cheap nappies every nappy you can think of and had problems with all of them but not these. They fit lovely and I find they are really good through the night as well.
CONS - None
SUMMARY -I would recommend these nappies over huggies, pampers and any other store brand too. I would never go back to any others now as you really don't need to! Everyone I have spoken to who use these also say the same and the best thing is there good value for money too!
WHERE TO BUY / PRICE - Asda and they are £5.97
As a first time a was pretty naïve when it to buying nappies. We received a lot of freebies and samples, many of which were well known brands. We thought that with these being so well known and seemingly popular they must be therefore the best on the market.
However...... after running out of nappies on a mad Sunday afternoon we dashed to Asda. we couldn't find the right size in the branded nappies so we took a risk and brought the Asda's own brand, which at the time we on a fantastic offer of 2 packs for £10!! Needless to say we have never looked back.
- No leakages
- Kind to my sons skin
- Good range of sizes
- Good pack sizes
-The out side packaging have built in handles to easy to carry.
- The outside packaging is perforated to ease opening
- Strong tabs
- Only available to buy in Asda stores or online
- Fairly bland designs on the nappies, especially on the bigger sizes
In summary - I feel that these nappies are much superior to branded ones for the reasons listed above. They give much more value for money and I have not had any issues with them in the past 3 years.
I'd always been a fan of Pampers nappies and up until 6 months ago I would only use them until my very fussy friend recommended Asda's Little Angels.
Were currently using Little Angels size 4 nappies which each bag contains 48 nappies and these are nearly always on offer for 2 for £10 which works out only 10 pence per nappy. Where I was paying 18 pence per nappy for a leading brand which I believe is no better a product, other than has well known children's characters on!!
These nappies are hypoallergenic and dermatologically tested as well as being extremely absorbent. Since using these nappies I have not had one leakage and my little boy never suffers with nappy rash.
The design of the nappy is to have soft and stretchy leg cuffs allowing flexible movement of your child. Made of breathable material ideal for long nights without changing the nappy. The absorbent part is shaped to fit the couture of the body for comfort.
The picture design of the nappy is on a strip at the top which features a baby in various places - on a beach, walking, playing with toy and many more.
For me these nappies are as good as Pampers however saying that I am due my second child anytime now and I have brought Pampers Newborn. I will purchase some Little Angel newborn and see how I get on.
I would recommend anyone to try these nappies as I do feel they are value for money and at half the cost of leading brands worth a go.
We've been using Little Angels comfort dry nappies for the past two years. They come in a turquoise pack with a handle. The actual nappies inside are mainly white, with a picture border on the top and different coloured circles. The back is almost the same, but with 'Little Angels' written on the top, and the size of the nappy written in a turquoise box. We currently use a size 4 maxi, which come with 48 nappies in a pack. As with all nappies, the smaller the size of nappies, the more you get in the packet. At full price these cost £5.97 per packet, but so far I have always been able two packs for £10. The amount of nappies you get in a packet is a lot more than you get in any of the big branded packs for a similar price. I did manage to purchase a large box of Little Angels comfort dry nappies for about £10 from the Asda baby event once, but have never seen the boxes again.
Little Angels nappies are Hypoallergenic, which is one of the reasons we started using them in the first place. Previous to these, we had tried all the big named brands-Huggies in particular were causing my youngest daughter to have a rash-so my health visitor actually recommended these! Now we won't use any other brand besides Pampers (if they're in the sale) as we know that Little Angels have been designed with childrens sensitive skin in mind.
Compared to most other nappies, I find this brand of nappies a lot thicker- but without being too bulky. They have very stretchy sides, and a tab either side at the back, which you use to fasten the nappy at the front. With certain other brands I have found that the tabs have been weak when fastening, deeming the whole nappy useless when they break off. This has never been a problem with Little Angels.
Size wise, I think that Little Angels sizing is spot on. I find that the weight stated on the packets is the same size which I use on my children, which has not always been the case with other brands.
Little Angels comfort dry have been designed for babies and toddlers to use during the day or night. They are made out of material which allows babies and toddlers to be comfortable at night. The nappies are breathable, but have a high absorbency. With huggies nappies my children had so many accidents, with Little Angels the only times we have accidents are when the children are teething (but who doesn't!!).
I would definately recommend these nappies, I can't believe how little my children leak or get nappy rashes and I think these nappies are part of the reason.
I've been through quite a few brands of nappies in the last 17 months of being a mummy. The main reason being I cannot justify spending the prices leading brands such as pampers and huggies ask for. However i refuse to compromise on quality. As a result Ive had to deal with wet babygros , pooey back fiascos and many clothing stains! However I struck gold with little angels!
Before using them I used to purchase my nappies at Lidls- they were a similar brand of nappies that worked well but when I moved house I was no longer close to that shop so had to look elsewhere.
Little Angels are an Asda Brand. Their nappies go for around the £5 mark. I get the size 4 maxi pack and I get 48 nappies which compared to many other brands is great value. Comfort dry is actually designed more for night time so its very absorbent. I however find it useful for day and night.
The nappies are also hypoallergenic so will also do well for little ones who have senstive skin.
The design of the nappy is the usual standard tab ones. The front contains an illustrated strip at the top and different coloured circles. The back shows the "little angels" logo, the size nappy it is and more circles. Id say its pretty unisex- there are some "girly" colours used such as pink and purple but blue and green are also used.
Leakwise ive only had 2 leaks in the last 6 months. I think this is good considering my son has been known to go through 10 nappies a day (inherited his fathers metabolism no doubt). The leakages are more likely caused by me not securing the nappy anyhow.
Having used both pampers and huggies I'd definitly liken these to pampers and would say they are as good if not better than them.
