when first going to choose my little girls nappies asdas little angels where the ones most recommended by my friends and familys that are mums so i decided to give them a try. These nappies come in packs of 36 or you can buy a box that contains 72 (2packs). I have now been using these for 3 months and only have one bad thing to say about them, when my daughter was ill n had a off tummy i had to throw alot of her clothes away because these nappies just could not deal with the explosive diarrhea it would come stright up her back and ruin all her clothes. I am still using these nappies as they seem to brilliant to deal with normal stool no leakage wot so ever and also do a brilliant job through the night as well.
They are cheap to buy they work well in normal situations and they are recommended by alot of mums i know including my self.
Since the birth of our little one we have tried a few different brands of nappies in an attempt to save ourselves a few quid here and there. We worked out that it would cost us around £4 less per week to use the Asda branded nappies compared with using Pampers that we had been using.
A pack of 30 nappies will cost you around £3.97 which works out at 13.2p per nappy. Compared with Pampers I found that our little one was a little more red around the bottom which we could only put down to the moisture not being locked away just as well.
I also found that these nappies weren't quite as easy to put on as they weren't quite as good a fit. I felt they were a smaller size compared with the pampers. The Asda nappy also seemed to cause a bit of redness around the tops of the legs which I put down to the nappy not being quite as good a fit and rubbbing on our wee ones legs.
As with Pampers the bag and the front as fairly obvious. There is a little logo on the front which I found was a handy way of remembering which way round the nappy went, especially at 3am!
These are a decent alternative and are on a par to some of the other supermarket branded nappies we have tried but don't quite compare to Pampers in my opinion. Once our little one is a little older and their skin isn't as sensitive I would try the Asda nappy again. However, for newborns I would personally recommend sticking with Pampers.
I have always been a big fan of pampers nappies. These were all I ever used with my oldest boy and it was these I stocked up on for the arrival of our new addition. I would never previously have considered supermarkets own brand as I thought they would be of a far lower quality and not provide the same comfort for me little one but when my husband came back from Asda with their own Little Angels range rather than the pampers he had been sent for I had no option but to give them a go.
My first impression of the nappies when I opened the pack was that they seemed well made, but I was still sceptical as to how they would perform. So after bath time I dressed our daughter, placed one of the new nappies on her peachy bottom. The fit looked good, the velcro tabs looked strong enough and the eleastic around her legs was secure but not too tight. So now it was time for bed. To let you understand our little one goes to bed at 7pm and usually sleeps till about 8:30am and this length of time is a challenge for our regular premium brand, especially now she is 5 months old and beinging to beome more active. Fast forward to morning and I was pleasantly surprised to find that her babygrow was in fact still dry and the nappies hadn't leaked. If fact my little girl still seemed quite comfortable and happy. Needless to say I was now a convert to Asda's own brand. Not only do I feel the quality was far better than pampers the price was far more reasonable too. Especially since when we went it was 2 packs for £10, as opposed to Pampers 2 for £20.
We have now been using these nappies for about 1 month without any problems. She is in the size 4, and the fit on her is again better than the pampers. We have had no problems with nappy rash or the elastic cutting into her legs and the nappies, although very absorbant and no too think and bulky, allowing her to kick and move without the nappies getting in the way.
All in all a great product.
Asda's Little Angels Comfort Dry nappies retail at just under £6 for a pack of 40 size 5 nappies. Obviously you get more or less in a pack depending on the nappy size. They are often on sale for two packs for £10, which works out as 12.5p per nappy for my 2.5 year old, who wears size 5.
We have always used Pampers in the past - probably having been persuaded by their advertising that they are the least likely nappy to leak. When all you want in life is the best chance possible for a good night's sleep, you don't think much about cost!
However having tried the Asda nappies on a recent tightening of the belt exercise, I wish we'd been using them all along. They are soft and comfortable and seem to fit really well. Over the last month since we switched, my son has had no leaks at all. This is compared to the occasional leak at night we used to have with Pampers. They fit snugly around his legs and the tabs used to fasten them are equally as easy to use as those from other brands. They are covered in coloured spots and all have a little picture on the front- good for a distraction technique during the more stressful nappy changes.
The only disadvantage is a small one- they are slightly bulkier than Pampers but this doesn't seem to hinder my son's movements at all. He is always very quick to complain if he finds anything not to his liking!
In short - equally as good as the leading brand but better value. If only I'd started using them before.
Asda little angels comfort dry. I have just recently purchased these they are on offer at 2 packs of nappies (48's in size 4) for £10.
I used to use these nappies for my son and now my daughter is older (15m) i decided to go back to these for her. The design has changed since i last had them and is a spotty nappy with pictures around the tummy band. And little angels written across the back.
So the nappy.... It feels soft and is well elasticated around the legs. My daughter has had them on over night for 12 hours and been dry and had no soreness. The best thing i have found is the nappy doesnt hang when full as others do as this often leads to leaks in my experience. With Huggies my daughter leaks straight through the outside of the nappy over night and they hang really badly when she has had it on only for a short time. I find the design of these little angels nappies the same as pampers but softer. The design is simple yet nice as nappys go! The fit well although becareful with the sizing. These size 4's supposedly go up to 40lb. They are a snug fit on my daughter and she will be max 25lb!
I will be continuing to use these nappies and save myself a few pennies without causing problems problems for my LO!
When i had my first daughter 3 years ago I presumed I was doing the best for her by choosing the supposed best nappies and she was in Huggies or Pampers for the first few months of her life. When she was a few months old the Huggies began to leak on a night and she would wake up soaked through and when I saw the price Pampers were selling at I knew we would have to try some others.
I decided that I would try the supermarkets own brands, not the really cheap (value and smartprice) but the ones that are supposed to be the middle of the nappy brands. I tried both Asda and Tesco so I could see which was best and they are both as good as each other and certainly better than some premium brands.
Now 3 years later and on baby number 2, I have used Huggies and pampers on her when on offer but have mainly stuck with the supermarket brands and over the last couple of years Tescos prices have gone up more than Asdas meaning that the Asda nappies are now my preference.
These nappies are styled the same as all the others, they have little angels written across the back with the fastening tabs and a picture across the front with the tabs to tuck in, they have flexible sides for a better fit and are resealable. The nappies have pastel coloured spots all over it. The nappies have elasticated legs and fit perfectly on my daughter, she never has any nappy marks around the top of the leg or the stomach. These nappies have brilliant absorbance, mu daughter is in her nappy between 12 and 13 hours through the night and we have never had a morning where she has been soaked through or even damp and the moisture has been drawn away from her skin.
In the last 3 years these nappies have won silver in the mother and baby awards and were finalists in the practical parenting awards. I would highly recommend these nappies, my daughter is currently in size 3 nappies and due to Asda putting all their economy packs of nappies on 2 for £10 we get 120 nappies for £10 which can't be beaten anywhere without buying value brands. These are good value for money and you are not compromising on your babies comfort.
I have a 4 month old son and i think i have already tried every brand of nappy that there is! I've even tried all of the Supermarkets own brand Nappies just like this one so i can safely say i am very experienced when it comes to nappies! When you have young children, nappies are an essential and can be quite expensive, so it is a really good idea to test out different ones and find a brand that is affordable yet still works well.
The cheapest nappies are the Supermarkets own brand ones by a mile and i've been very impressed with them. Particularly Asda's own brand nappies which are called 'Little Angels' nappies. When i first bought the Asda nappies i thought they looked very plain and boring and they certainly had a no frills design and were just plain white. But they worked really well and were very absorbant even at night time when my son has them on for a long time and honestly just as good as the other expensive nappy brands, so i was willing to just accept the fact that they had a boring design. But then yesterday when i went to stock up on nappies in the Asda Baby Event sale that they have on at the moment, i noticed they have changed the design! They are now bright and colourful and even have 'Little Angels' written on them in big colourful letters, so these nappies now tick every box for me and i will certainly continue to buy them as it will save me a fortune.
I bought a box of 62 nappies for only £5 as that is their current price in Asda, i would highly reccomend these nappies if you are looking to save on your baby products.
Hi day before yesterday we buy first time asda little angels nappies and my 9 month old baby is very comfortable in these.These nappies are quite better then others.now m not bother about any brand b'coz now i find good product for my baby.These nappies not leaked not broke and the main thing long lasting.my second baby is on the way and i already decided that my next choice of nappies are LITTLE ANGELS AND IT IS ALSO IN MY BUDGET.really m so happy with these LITTLE ANGELS NAPPIES from ASDA.
Asda nappies are a great nappy I think, our little girl has had no problems in the 10 months she has been using them, and these really do the job great. We have used the branded ones and find these to not be as good at dealing with what is thrown at them; these do not turn into crystals either like some of the branded ones.
These stop any leakages from the side and back, nothing really seems to leak out of the nappy, these have been well designed and thought through. These have recently been revamped to be put into bigger packs, they used to be 3 packs for £10 now they are 2 packs for £10, not sure why but I am sure Asda will have done their research on this as this nappy has won many award in the past and I can see why.
These are good for bedtime, these do not leak through the nappy when these are tested when junior is sleeping, these hold up until the morning most times.
These have little pictures of children on the front with each nappy saying little angels on the rear, these are elasticised around the legs which is not too tight when all fitted. These are mainly white with some green detail, a good choice of neutral colour I find. These are tightly packed into their packs, first time we bought the little angel version we were amazed how they package these so snugly.
These tend to come in packs of 34 to 60 depending on the stage your son or daughter is at, obviously the smaller the baby the more nappies you get for your £10
The best supermarket brand out there in my eyes, does not leak easily, easy to put on, well packaged, great little prints on each individual nappy
I have wrote a lot of reviews on Nappies you may of noticed, that is because I must have tried most of the nappy brands available because I have never quite found one that suits my needs. If I am not happy with them and do not find them acceptable then how can I expect my baby to wear them?? I have now found two brands that I am convinced are God's gift to mothers!!
I purchace ASDA nappies once out of every 3 or 4 packs that I buy, the reason for this is that ASDA is not the most convenient place for me to shop and it is a wonder when I do get there and I can buy these.
I last bought these 1 week ago and was mystified when I was looking on the shelves and couldn't find them, it was then that I realised the whole packaging has changed to look more modern and also the pack sizes have changed. I usually buy size 4 and they have around 30 (something) nappies in them but now they have 44 and are priced at £5.97 (instead of £3.97 for the smaller packs) or 2 for £10.00! I am pleased to say that the nappies have not changed and are still of the same amazing quality that they always were!
The nappies themselves are stretchy and soft, with attractive colours and designs on the front and the logo Little Angels on the back.
I have found that these are one of the only brands of nappies that minimise odour and keep the skin dry. My daughter is becomin more and more active now nearly walking and so I purchaced the Active Fit of the range and I have to say that they are just that. As the weather is getting more and more clammy I regularly let my daughter crawl and attempt to walk around in just a nappy and as she moves her legs (or falls onto her bum!) I can see the nappies stretch to accomodate this with no pulling or snagging and even though they are stretching they still stay tight around the tops of the legs without rubbing or cutting in.
While using these nappies I can honestly say that I have never encountered any leakage, even now when she is eating food with large lumps in it (think macaroni cheese, spaghetti and sausages etc.), the food is coming out the exact way that it goes in and yet still there is no leakage!!
I have also never had a rip, tear or broken tab on these nappies and that is why I highly recommend them with 5*.
The nappies can be bought from ASDA Stores and online and the pack sizes vary depending on the nappy size but from what I can see the price stays the same £5.97 or two for £10.00 - Bargain!
When shopping for newborn Nappies, I tried Asda'a nappies as they were the only brand that had the size I needed else to be honest I wouldn't have even considered them! They were very good value for money at 3 packs for £10 which is considerably cheaper than the more popular brands! I wouldn't say they are the best but I also wouldn't say they are the worst! The design of the nappy is quite simple with a small picture on the front, they fitted my baby well, I did finds that you have to pull the sticky tags quite hard to secure the nappy which when you have a wriggly baby isn't ideal! We had a few instances when wee leaked out but this has happened more with Huggies nappies! Overall it is quite a good nappy which I would consider buying them if the normal nappies I use had sold out. I think a lot of the time if it has a supermarket name as the brand we can all be quite reluctant to buy but for the value of money it is very good.
For the purposes of this review I will be reviewing both Asda Little Angel New Arrival Nappies, size 2, and Asda Little Angels Comfort Dry, size 3. Following Pampers recent "improvements" I've tried a few others to find a new brand that works, I've used about half a packet of both over two and a half days.
Firstly the New Arrivals.
The packaging is bright yellow with a green banner across the bottom. The brand: Adsa Little Angels is written in grey in the top left of the packet. New Arrival is written in white edged in orange. In the green band it tells you the size, 2, and how many nappies are contained within the packet, 46, and the weight range this generally covers, 3-6 kg or 6-13lbs. There is a large picture of a blonde woman in a white vest holding an equally blonde baby in a nappy. Down the left hand side are three circles claiming that the nappies are: dermatologically tested & hypoallergenic, embossed topsheet helps to absorb soft poo and increased comfort with soft flexible sides. A star in the middle of the packet announces Mother and Baby award 2008/9 Gold Retailer of the Year. There is a little information on the sides about disposal, safety, refund policy and their donations to Tommy's although it does state that no money from this pack has been donated to charity. The rear of the pack is the same as the front it's just been rotated by 90 degrees.
Cost and Availability
These nappies cost just under £4 or were on a multi buy 3 packs for £10, they offered the same multi buy for Pampers so they cost the same as a "premium" brand. Being an Asda brand they are only available at Asda.
The nappies look similar to Pampers nappies. They are white with a band of yellow across the top, on the band are various pictures of cartoon babies. Inside also looks similar with a honeycomb type top sheet. The edges are elasticated.
It doesn't exactly feel soft but smooth inside, they aren't thick and bulky but aren't so thin that you'd doubt them. The tabs at the top that you use to fasten them are quite soft and flexible as stated.
As I said earlier I have been using these nappies for a couple of days now for my baby, who is now nearly six weeks old and weighs about 11lb 10oz. They have only leaked once in two days, as opposed to every nappy with Pampers. I find that my baby's skin isn't protected from the moisture though and is constantly wet when I go to change him and as a result he is starting with nappy rash only two days in. As a result of this I won't be using these nappies again.
Now onto the Comfort Dry.
The Packaging has a similar layout to the New Arrival nappies, the name is different, obviously. The colouring is sage green with a bright orange band. You only get 36 nappies in size three so you get ten more in the new arrival packs. The claims are the same except instead of claiming about the embossed top sheet they claim sleep dry technology. They also carry the Mother and Baby retailer of the year and also a silver star for the actual product: Best Disposable Nappy.
Cost and Availability
The Comfort Dry size 3 cost exactly the same as the New Baby, just under £4, although with ten less nappies I don't know why. Again they are only available at Asda.
The Nappies are mainly white but are bordered in light green, there are cartoon babies scattered all over the nappy. At the top on the front there is a band that looks like a scene from a lily pond or grass and sky etc, with a baby playing. On the rear in the middle of all the small cartoon babies is a larger baby dressed as a rabbit with a number 3, indicating the size.
Again the nappies feel smooth rather than soft. They are just the right thickness and have the same flexibility on the fastening tabs. The edges are elasticated.
I bought these nappies to use on my 16month old, who is small for his age and fairly skinny he is also teething so his pooh is a bit loose shall we say. The first day was fine, the next morning I went to get my son out of his cot to discover him playing with a small amount of pooh that had come out of the leg of his nappy, I was a bit disappointed as I'd just washed all his bedding and I'd had high hopes for the nappies but it hadn't exactly leaked majorly and luckily it was a sunny day so I could put the washing out. That evening my husband found him playing with something on the back step, once again a little had leaked out of the nappy. Unhappy but not being able to get out and get some more nappies last night I put my son to bed hoping for no leaks, I was woken by him crying at 3 this morning, this is unusual, once asleep he normally stays that way until at least 6am. I went in to find him covered in pooh, it was everywhere. Because it leaked while he was asleep and he moves a lot in his sleep, it had not only got on his legs, sheet and quilt but all over his body and because he'd stood up to shout me all over the sides of the cot. There was a lot of pooh and it was very loose but I'd still expect a nappy to cope with it. I had to shower him off, put him in bed with my husband, put all the bedding in the wash then scrub down the entire cot. This is not what you want to do at 3am. It disturbed our three year old son, who shares a room with my 16 month old, myself and my husband, luckily the baby had just slept off when my toddler woke up.
I'm aware that not all nappies suit every shape of baby, and my son is quite skinny but I don't expect pooh to come out of his nappy. And as for the new arrival nappies, nappy rash after two days doesn't say quality to me! I can only assume that my 16 month old's nappies didn't contain enough moisture to give him nappy rash. I will not be using either of these nappies again.
As a mother of two younguns I feel I know a thing or two about nappies now. Over the past four years I think I have tried most brands and for two of those years I even used real nappies (the arrival of number two and a severe lack of motivation put a stop to that unfortunately). Generally I like a bargain, and so I'll look for offers on the premium brands, but if the offers are not overly generous, I revert to a supermarket's own label of nappies which generally I've found to perform just as well.
Currently I am using Asda's Little Angels Comfort Dry nappies. My daughter is crawling, rolling over, pulling herself up and generally being very active at the moment but not quite walking and so her nappy is being given a good road test by day. By night she is also crawling, rolling over, pulling herself up and generally being very active plus very demanding on the milk, drinking far more than a good mother should really allow, and so her night-time nappy is also being given a good road test. The Asda nappies perform no better and no worse than premium brand nappies yet cost a fraction of the price. The first nappy I change in the morning is incredibly heavy - a sign of how much liquid it has adsorbed throughout the night, but thankfully we don't experience any leakage. The daytime nappies never get quite so heavy, but do get some serious bowel movements (the consequnce of her recommended five fruit and veg a day) and I find the leakage is no better or worse than the premium brands. The nappies never leak out the legs, but I do sometimes find some escape to the back of the nappy. If this didn't happen with the premium brand nappies then I could understand paying the premium price, but I'm fairly convinced now, that the nappies perform quite similarly and leak on a similar frequency (thankfully not too much).
The main difference I find with Asda nappies as compared to a brand like Pampers Active Fit, is the stretchiness of the nappy. Asda nappies are not quite so stretchy and supple. Having said this, the Asda nappies do have enough stretch to allow the comfort that baby requires and so I do not think this is a problem. Asda nappies also do not come with branded cartoons on them. Whilst it is nice to have Sesame Street or Winnie the Pooh on my daughter's nappy, and certainly this is the baby in vogue fashion, at the age of 1 she is yet to understand the significance of these brands, and the rather non-descript baby pictures on her nappy do her just fine! Hopefully her peers are not too judgemental yet about nappy fashion and she will not suffer any lasting damage from being made to wear non premium branded nappies! I'm hoping that the pennies saved now will help her much more when she's older, but time will tell.
The Asda nappies have a good amount of stretch around the waist for securing, and I've not had any problem with the tabs ripping off which can happen on some of the cheaper brands. The elasticated legs on the nappies also have a good amount of stretch and as my baby has average sized legs, we've experienced no leakage in that area.
The nappies are sold in a range of sizes from Newborn up to size 5. We are currently using size 4s (maxi), which have 32 in a pack which retails at £3.85. Asda seems to permanently run this product on promotion at 3 packs for £10 which works out at 10.4p per nappy which I think is excellent value for money.
5 dooyoo stars for me on this one.
Hope you liked my review and found it useful :-)
I do not have any small babies as my children are all grown up now and I am a grandma to a gorgeous little boy and he comes to stay sometimes and a few months ago, he came to stay just for the day and his mum had some nappies she had started using to save money and there were about 8 in her baby bag she carries everywhere with her for his needs.
So I asked her if I could take a couple of the nappies incase he ever did not have any here if he stayed unexpectedly and so I put a couple in a drawer, he did arrive one day and I did need those extra ones I had in the drawer, so I went to buy some for myself and was amazed how cheap they were for only £3.85p for 32 nappies from Asda I could not believe the price, my daughter told me they were cheap but did not say how much as she did not think I would be buying some for my home.
I saw them for 3 packs for £10 but I did not need all those so I just bought the single pack.
The size I bought was for a baby weight 15 to 40lb, and the nappy has a nice little liner inside to hold the water and they work perfectly and my grandson does not have nappy rash, they keep his skin nice and dry, they do not leak as I thought they would, they are very soft and stretch nice around his leg for his comfort. They do not tend to fall off when moving the body etc, they have a good grip around the waist also and do not leak, at nightime during the night, I have found they are perfect too as the sheets have still been dry and in the morning too.
They are easy disposable placed in a bag, but they are not recycable as with all nappies.
They are very basic but for the amount of nappies a baby or young child uses in a day these are perfect value and good quality. For the price of just £10 you can have almost 100 nappies stocked your cupboard or a drawer. They do not have any fancy photos on the packaging but it is why they are so cheap, but the packaging only gets thrown away anyway.
Try them for yourself and if you have more than one child in nappies as I did when mine were younger, you will save yourself a fortune.
I give them a 5 star.
I must say I like to try and save money in any area that I can. I have found that baby products are very expensive and think that some products are very over priced and poor value. I have found that nappies are one of the main things that cost a lot of money and you use so many in a week it is impossible to try and save some money. My eldest daughter is in the smart price nappies that are very cheap and very good but they only do them in one size which means I have to pay more for the youngest daughters.
While comparing prices in asda I noticed that asda do their own range of smaller nappies that are called little angels, they are only £1 to £2 cheaper than pampers and huggies and the special deal for 3 packs is £10 which is around £8 cheaper than the leading brands deals. I decided to pick up a pack to try them out.
My daughter is in a size 3 now but they do range these from newborn to size 5 which is good. They come in an easy open pack that has a perforated line that can be pulled open to get the nappies out. They are very similar to the leading brands in that they are dermatologically tested and hypoallergenic, they have increased comfort with soft flexible sides to allow your child to move more freely and they have sleep technology which means that they stay dry for longer through the night time, I like this because all my children are good sleepers and have 12 hours a night the last thing they need is broken sleep because they feel wet and uncomfortable.
My size 4 nappies that I recently bought have 32 nappies in a pack which last us almost a week. These are from 7 - 18 kg or 15 -40 lb, I am not sure of my daughters weight due to I have not taken her to be weighed for a while but the size 3's are getting too tight so I upped them. These have won a gold mother and baby award 200/09 for retailer of the year and a silver award for the mother and baby awards 2008/2009 for best disposable nappy. This has given me some peace of mind that they are very good for my child and will not harm her in any way.
There is some safety information on the side of the pack that states to keep the plastic packaging away from children due to it can cause suffocation. I tend to empty mine into a box and discard the packaging as soon as they are bought. There is also disposal information about how to discard of the nappy once used.
I have found these nappies do not leave my daughter smelling and soak in the wetness very well. She is very contented at sleep time and she has never suffered from nappy rash when using these. These are a material nappy that is very soft and stretches well around my daughter's legs and waist. There are no marks where the nappy has been when I have to remove it. I have also found that these nappies have never leaked and I have never seen the crystals come out of the nappy once it is too wet. They are easy to put on and the flexible straps are kept on the front of the nappy by a Velcro type fastening, this fastening doesn't loosen and is still hard for the child to open but very easy for me. Some nappies stick to the child's skin when removed and can be quite painful to remove but these are very gentile. I find my child is protected very well and has come to no harm using these. I think these a good value for money and better than the leading brands. I would advise parents to buy these rather than pampers or huggies a nd save a few pennies in doing so.
