      5/5

      We're closer to full time toilet using these days but recently I spotted 20 nappies in Morrisons for £1.50. Thinking they'd leak, be useless at night, fall apart when you put them on or all of the above I wasn't expecting much for my £1.50. We've almost exclusively used supermarket own brand nappies but hadn't ever bought the 'savers' or 'value' brands, deeming them too cheap for our needs so when the cheaper than cheap nappies from Morrisons did the trick I was surprised.

      Now the packaging in which these nappies come in? It's not glamorous, I can tell you. A white packet with 'Morrisons Savers Nappies', a cartoon picture of teddies and the number of nappies on the packet is about as far as the budget stretches for the design of the packet but I have to say that the outer plastic wrap of the packaging is greater than the second cheapest supermarket own brand nappies. The nappies are also kept in the packaging pretty tight which makes the first few difficult to pull out from the packet but that's a universal trend with nappy packets ;).

      So...on to the live action test. Like I said, I wasn't expecting much when I bought these nappies but I thought we'd give them a go as I was low on cash the day I had to re-stock on nappies. Well I was pleasantly surprised with these nappies! They are sturdy in the sense that don't easily fall apart at the closing tabs on either side, they fasten very snuggly and can be adjusted fairly easily. One comment I would make is that if you're planning on buying this variety of nappies: buy a size up. When I changed my son in the morning the nappy had held up very well; no leakages or spills.

      Again with the design; it is pretty simple with a few line drawn teddies on the front of the nappy. No frills, no fireworks but they get the job done.

      Price comparison time: These nappies are under £1.50 in a Morrisons near you with Tesco Value nappies (which are, in my view and experience, of a worse quality) are currently £1.97. For a pack of Huggies 'Step In Nappies' which come in a pack of 20 they are being sold on Tesco.com for £6.48! Now obviously that is a HUGE difference in price and as I find these nappies better than other supermarket value brands and no better than Huggies (which I have used) then it's not justifiable to spend £4.48 more on the same product with fancier packaging. Quite frankly I'm only motivated by quality and price but if you're one of these people who wants poop and pee catchers to look fancy (and who really cares as no one see's them anyway!) then you'll probably reach for the Huggies. Me, I'll stick to my Value nappies ;).

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        A good choice for a cheaper nappy

        I tend to use supermarket nappies most of the time as they are so much cheaper then most of the brands out there and just as good.

        Because of this I decided to give Morrisons a go. They are very clearly labelled with the size and weights of the baby on the front so there is no confusion as to what nappy size you should be buying.

        The nappies themselves do look a little bit cheaper then most as they have a paper like feel on the front. However that really does seem to be as far as the 'cheapness' goes. They have pictures of cute little animals on the front which is rather sweet, and they seem to be quite slim nappies which is great as they look more comfortable on your baby. The only problem with this is that the nappies don't seem to absorb as much and so you need to be changing your baby a bit more often which is slightly annoying.

        The nappies have the usual sides which stick down close or further apart depending on how tight you want the nappy. These are nice and secure and hold the nappy in place well. They also have the double frill around the legs which are elasticated and keep in any wee or poo and they do seem to be good at this.

        Overall I think they are of excellent quality and are around £2 cheaper then the brand nappies, easy choice I think!

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        A good value nappy that will do the job quite well.

        Well I think I have almost tried all of the supermarket nappies now and Morrisons is next for me to review. I have to say that I did not purchase the nappies they were a gift from a friend who did a lovely baby hamper for us and filled it with Morrisons Size 3 nappies they are classed as midi nappies and I am unsure of the exact retail price but believe them to be under £4 for a fairly large pack.

        The nappies seem pretty slimline and contain a peach and blue hippo on the front. The nappies to me are similar to the Tesco own brand except they don't feel as soft and seem less bulky. The nappies have adjustable velcro straps and have an extra tab to the front to give extra coverage.
        As with most nappies there is an elasticated skirt around the legs and to catch any leaks that may occur and I have to say that whilst using these nappies we had no leaks from wee or poo.

        I did find that when Alex filled the nappy there was a strong smell of urine after a night's sleep mainly because Alex pees so much! During the day however we found these nappies were more than capable of doing the job and doing the job well.
        The nappies are strong and durable and took quite a lot of tugging when I realised I had not put them quite in the right place. The fastening tabs are very strong and keep the nappy securely in place and if you have a wriggly baby like I do you can simply fasten the nappy quickly to hold it in place and then concentrate on refastening securely when you get the opportunity.
        I find that if I wait for Alex to calm down as he gets somewhat overexcited on his changing mat and the fact he is partially naked that he tends to spray all over the place unless I am quick!

        By the time I was using these nappies Alex had been switched onto Formula rather than breastmilk which meant his poo was more solid so I cannot comment on how absorbant they would be with runny breastmilk poos! I did find that sometimes the poo would be right at the top of the nappy but I would not necessarily say this is a fault of the nappy as it occured when I was using pampers too.
        The nappies certainly do not disguise the odour that came from a poo filled nappy so we found it easy to know when we needed to change him quickly.

        The nappies seem comfortable on Alex and do not seem to restrict him in any way and he is quite happy kicking his legs about whether he is in a chair or on his playmat. They keep him dry and clean which is one of the most important factors for me when picking which brand to go for.

        I am not brand loyal which basically means I will buy the best offer at the time and I do find that the supermarket brands are just as good as the leading brands such as Huggies and Pampers.

        When I started using these nappies Alex was just over 11lbs and the size 3 nappies should be good up to around 15lbs or so but check the pack for the exact sizes. There do tend to be offers on the nappies allowing you to benefit on a discount when you buy two packs.

        Overall I would recommend these nappies they do the job and my baby has never had any problems with them at all and if they happen to be the cheapest when I am stocking up then I will not hesitate in purchasing them.

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          great value for money

          My grandson is now a month old and before he was born we started stocking up with packs of various brands of nappies for newborns. I bought the Morrison's brand whilst shopping one week and they cost me £3.49 which was not a bad price to pay for a pack of 26 newborn nappies.

          The pack of newborn is a yellow plastic pack with an picture of a mother and baby on the front and it has the number 1 in a little green oblong on the front, this also says the weight which is 2-5kg or 4-11lbs.
          I thought it would be good to have a few packs from each brand to see which would be the best. My grandson was born at the beginning of November and weighed a whopping 9lbs 11 ounces which was a bit of a shock as we had been told he would be just above the average weight of a newborn, so we were expecting a 8lbs or just over baby.

          I look after my grandson one night each week to help out and although I'm was little out of practice having a baby to look after all night I soon got into the swing of things. Although it takes me a little longer to catch up on my sleep nowadays.
          I have all the baby things at my house for when I have my grandson over for the night so have my own stock of nappies.

          The morrisons newborn nappies are small and made from a kind of thin paper like outer with a cotton wool lining to catch the water or any soiling the baby might do.
          The legs are elasticated so that they can hug the legs to avoid leaks. On the front of each nappy is a little picture of two baby birds in the nest which is cute and they have a stretchy waistband and sticky fastenings.

          To use them you have to make sure the front of the nappy is facing you and pop the back of the nappy under the babies bottom, after cleaning the babies bottom and drying properly so they don't get nappy rash you can then fold the front up and towards the back of the nappy. Pull out the sticky fasteners which are on the back part of the nappy and then stick them on the front and it's secure.
          The baby is then free to go back to sleep after a good feed.

          These nappies have a breathable cover to let air get to the babies bottom so that there is less risk of the baby getting nappy rash. The wetness is absorded into the lining of the nappy whilst the top inside cover stays dry and the wet is not on the babies skin. Also helping to prevent nappy rash.

          After using these nappies I think that they are not too bad. At first I thought they were rubbish as once or twice during the day my grandson had wet clothes and had to be changed, but on closer examination it was my fault.
          These nappies have to be adjusted when used. You have to make sure the nappy is on tight enough around the back and waist of the baby and then run your finger around the legs of the the nappy to make sure the elasticated part is hugging the babies legs as any gaps will cause leaks and we all know that little boys are classic for pee-ing everywhere so as I hadn't got the nappy on tightly enough my grandson was able to wee out of one of the legs of the nappy and wet his baby grow.
          Once I had realised this was happening I made sure to tawe the time to see that the nappy was on properly and there were no more leaks.

          I rate these nappies as good value for money and for a new born baby that doesn't wriggle around a lot or move too much then they work well. The only thing is now, my grandson was such a big baby that after two weeks of being born he no longer fits in the newborn sizes. We have now had to go the next size up and they are still as good.

          I'm not sure what the size of nappies for older children would perforn like but for new born babies these are adequate. I am happy to recommend thenm to you.

            A good nappy at a decent price, it works for us.

            Morrisons nappies have seemed to get a mixed review on here, recently not too good. But I'd like to say I haven't had a problem with these nappies and would recommend them to anyone. Everyone has their own view and experience on brands of nappies so I always think its important to give them ago yourself they may just work for you. I always used Pampers with my first son and started with my second but then my friends were saying they were saving money on using supermarkets own brand. I don't begrudge spending that money on my children but why not spend it on something more fun for them.

            The morrisons nappies hold a fair amount and my children never leak through the night. Although they maybe aren't quite as thin as Pampers they aren't blunky and my childrens movement is fine while wearing one. They are fairly soft too touch, my son is two and wears one and he never complains about them being uncomfortable.

            Price wise they are good value for money and are about the same price as Tesco's. I usually buy the smaller packs as at the moment you can buy 3 packs for £10 so I can buy some for my 2 year old and some for my 9 month old. For size 5 you get 28 nappies and size 4 is 32 nappies. So it works out at nearly 11p a nappy.

            dont bother

            I generally try to save money where i can and when my little boy was 1 i decided to start trying out cheaper brands of nappies to save a few pennies so i went trying all the brands and when it came to morrisons i have to say i was very dissapointed the first noticeable thing was the fact that they dont hold a lot, when i went to bed the first night he was wearing them i noticed he was wet through and he had only been wearing them around 4 hours so that really wasnt good enough. So next i thought well iv brought them now i may aswell use them up so i used them for daytime and put him other ones on at night but after a few days my little 1 started coming out in rashes and sores so i immediately threw the lot away they are rough on skin and dont hold anything. they are truly awfull nappies

            not worth the money

            My grandmother decided to do a good turn for me the other week. When she went shopping she picked me up some nappies for my two children. I told her the sizes and the make to get for each child.

            When she bought them down to me she had bought morrisons own for I don't know what reason. Not to seem ungrateful I thanked her. I decided to use them and not take them back thinking they couldn't be that bad.

            When I got them out the packs they were very similar to huggies nappies with the patterend band round the top and a velcro attachment. They seemed thick to be able to catch the waste they are meant for. I cleaned my daughters down and put one on each of them ready for bed. The next morning when they got up I changed them. My oldest daughter had a rash all round the top of her leg and little spots on her bottom, my other daughter was very sore and almost weeping. I threw the whole pack of nappies away and fetched some more of a different brand.

            I have noticed that these nappies are almost the price as the leading brands at almost £4 and this is a rip off in my opinion. They are not cheap and they are not nice enough on delicate skin which they should be. I would not be using these again and would advise people to stay away from them there are nicer cheaper brands available.

            Would steer well clear

            I've been on a real mission recently to find cheaper alternatives to the premium brands of nappies I bought for my first daughter. When she was born, I was completely pulled in by their powerful marketing campaigns and believed Pampers was the best choice for my little bubba's bottom. 31/2 years down the line, and now on my second round of nappy buying with scrummy bubba no. 2, I have changed thousands of nappies and I dread to think how much money I have spent.

            Since my awakening to the fact that some of the lower priced nappies did the job just as well as Pampers, I have been more than happy to try any brand of nappy to try and find the one that provides the best quality at the best price. So far on my journey of discovery I have been pleasantly suprised by Tesco's and completely blown away by Lidl and their Cein nappies, however I have yet to encounter any real disappointments.....until now.

            I don't normally shop in Morrisons, but during a stay with my mum, I was running a little low on nappies and we popped into her usual supermarket. I was more than happy to give the Morrisons nappies a go and was curious how they would compare with some of the other brands I had tried. They were reasonably priced costing around £3.80 for a pack in the size I required for my little angel. I was confident in my ourchase and I had no worries or quibbles that the nappies would not be up to scratch.

            Next day, i was ready ti open up the new Morrison's nappies. As soon as I pulled the first nappy out, I immediatley thought the quality was not as good as I had been used to. The nappy felt really rough and had quite a harsh feel to it. The nappies I had used previously had always felt really soft to the touch and I had always been happy to place them against my babies sensitive skin, however I had the feeling that these would be quite scratchy and was concerned that the would irritate her skin.

            When I tried to put the nappy on my little one, I also had trouble getting it on properly, my little one is quite slim but this nappy seemed to be too tight in places and then gape in others. The sretchy bit around her leg also felt quite rough, I wasn't convinced that this nappy would do the job or be comformtable for her.

            Fast forward a couple of hours, and after a big drink of juice....we had minor leakage. It was only minor, but when I went to change her nappy, the babk of her dress was also a little damp. This continued to happen as I made way through the packet until I managed to get to Lidl and stock up on my favourite Cein nappies. The Morrison nappies have since become my 'emergency only' nappies.

            So to sum it up, these nappies just seemed to be poor qualities and failed to do the job in containing everything, I would certainly avoid buying again.

              Don't be fooled by these cheaper imitation nappies

              Since having my daughter 13 years ago I always used premium branded nappies and never considered buying cheaper brands of nappies. Since having my son just 20 months ago, we were given the usual free samples when you have a baby, which included a Huggies and a Pampers nappy and money off coupons for them. These are most the well known and are popular with most new parents. Also our family bought us some nappies and baby supplies so we were stocked up, and had a few different brands of nappies to try.

              We happened to have both Huggies and Pampers nappies; All in all I never got on well with the Huggies nappies with my son as they seemed to leak quite often which proved to be frustrating. So I decided to carry on using Pampers, newborns need to be changed more frequently and the content of the nappy is looser which means leaks can be expected. As they get older the nappy doesn't need to be change quite as often and the contents are more solid. So if the nappy fits well you shouldn't get any leaks.

              However changing an active infant can be trying, as they wriggle about and try to escape it is a bit of a race to get the nappy on. There was quite a few times where the 'tab' would rip clean off, and the quality of the nappies didn't seem as good as when I had my daughter. Also having two children means money is tighter so we started buying 'boots' own brand of nappies which I was pleasantly surprised with as they were just as good as the branded nappies.

              A couple of weeks ago we hadn't noticed that we were down to three nappies, so my partner had to race over to Morrisons before they closed and he came back with a pack of Morrisons own brand of nappies. I thought they would be just as good as the boots own brand and the price was not much different either (Approx £7 for 50 nappies - depending on size). On first looking at them they don't look or feel as good, they are not as soft and they look quite thin and flimsy. Every nappy has a picture or a whale on the front of the waistband, and a few pastel coloured shapes decorating the rest of the nappy.

              My son wears size 4+ nappies, when I opened one up I immediately noticed that they looked smaller than they should. When I come to change my son I found the waistband only just fitted him and the tabs were just over his hips the front of the waistband doesn't have much extra material to tuck around meaning the nappy doesn't look secure and I can see more of my son's hips and thighs than usual. The tabs stick easily and can be re-stuck if needed, they are similar to other Velcro tabs - so no complaints there, other than my son can now take them off with ease. The elastic around the back of the nappy is quite small and above is a good 1.5cm of extra material. The back of the nappy does not fit to the contour of my sons body, and I can easily pull it away from his little bottom and see inside even when put on tight. The elastic ruffles around the legs don't fit snugly either and there isn't much extra material around the ruffles and once the nappy is soiled it starts to sag soon after and the sides of the nappy around the legs become loose. The filling in the nappy is quite sparse and when my son is wearing it I can see areas around the top of the back and sides where it looks almost see-through! Once the nappy has been on for a couple of hours and it starts to get 'heavy' it sags to one side! This doesn't look attractive to say the least.

              I check my son's nappy regularly throughout the day and he is changed when needed up to 4 times during the day to keep him clean and dry. I find myself checking a lot more and changing him a lot more with these nappies and on several occasions his thighs have become damp from leaks.
              During the night I don't have as much of a problem with these, as he doesn't wet as much and he isn't much of a fidget.

              Overall I am very disappointed with the fit and performance of these nappies, they have to be the worst I have used and we have used a few brands and cheaper ones than these at times. These are very poor in design and very thin. Not being massively cheaper than premium brands and around the same price as other shops own brands these are a let down. I won't be buying these again!

                highly recommend them!

                When my daughter was born i hadn't even considered that there were other brands of nappies available other then Huggies and Pampers - these are the ones that you are shown all over the place in adverts even before considering to have a child!!

                So when i got my free samples when pregnant i thought i would give them both a go before choosing which brand to stick with.

                Well, i then discovered that supermarket's have their own nappies too and when i tried Morrisons they were amazing - i can't really tell the difference between them other then the price. The sizes are the same and the absorbancy. My daughter doesn't know any different!! There is however nappy snobery i think when i go to baby groups i have had comments a few times that she has a differnet brand of nappies on but in the long run it will save us loads for a product that is of the same quality. I do however feel that the supermarkets must make loads more from the branded products as they never advertise there own items and there are sometimes fine - if the nappies are ok what else is?

                  Anyone for a free half bag of (useless) nappies?

                  When my granddaughter came to stay for the weekend a couple of weeks ago I realised I needed to get a packet of nappies for her, when I went to Morrisons I was a little annoyed that as their Pampers were on special offer the shelves were bare of size 5 and a member of staff informed me there was none in the store room either. Huggies do not suit her body shape at all so I was forced to buy a pack of the Morrisons own brand Mover nappies, which are supposed to be the equivalent of Pampers Active Fit.

                  I say forced as my daughter and I only ever buy Pampers, not because we're brand snobs (well, my daughter is a little) but simply because they offer the best fit for my granddaughter and tend not to leak. I remember own brand nappies from ten or eleven years ago when my eldest granddaughter was a baby and they were awful plastic things back then, it was only due to lack of time which meant me buying these Morrisons nappies as I really didn't have time to stop anywhere else to hunt for Pampers.

                  The nappy has a nice appearance, to be honest I do think it looks cheaper than a Pampers nappy but it has an attractive material look outer and soft cotton core which is the part of the nappy that will rest against your baby's skin. It's obviously not cotton, I don't think anyway, but has that kind of feel to it. There is a cute picture of a cartoon lion on the nappy I have in front of me at the moment but there are different designs in the packet.

                  The fit of the nappy is good. For reference, my granddaughter has slim hips and a practically non-existent bottom with lovely chunky legs and the nappy fit her perfectly. My friends much chubbier grandson is the same age and when she visited last week with him she borrowed one of these nappies and let me tell you it was a real squeeze getting the nappy to close! The tabs are strong, none have pulled off in my hand and they stick to the waistband securely and comfortably for baby.

                  During the day these nappies are fine, they hold everything they should and don't leak at all. My granddaughter hates a wet or dirty nappy and is very quick to tell someone when she wants changing so in the daytime there is really no opportunity for the nappy to fail as it's not on her for often. During the night, well, forget it. Every single morning she'd wake up with a soaking wet baby grow which would really upset her, this also meant that her skin would become sore and red in the morning which is a major disadvantage with this nappy that I simply cannot live with it.

                  After the second night I had to go and buy a small packet of Pampers from my local shop to use for my granddaughters overnight nappy, which calmed down the irritation immensely. The following week when she was back at home she came down with a terrible case of the runs thanks to an emerging tooth, I thank the Lord that this didn't happen while she was at my house with the Morrisons nappies as I really don't think they would have coped!

                  I won't use these again quite simply because they are not kind enough to my granddaughters skin to justify the £1.50 saving, if I had had the choice I would never have picked them up and the way these nappies perform at night just proves me right. If these nappies suit your baby then good luck to you, the price difference between these and Pampers would certainly mount up over the month, it's just that they didn't suit my granddaughter and we're back to Pampers already with half a pack of Morrisons Movers up for grabs on Freecycle!

                    Advantages

                    Disadvantages

                    price compramises quality but useable if needed

                    as you can imagine (or feel maybe)n this recent "credit crunch" is really starting to bite. So in responce I decided to try a few home brand product's from my local supermarcket. One of the things I decided to try was Morrison's own brand nappies. I must admit it was on a whim so I didn't get chance to look at any reviews so was a little nervous as to whether I was in for any leaks.
                    My son will be two years old in December and is a real wriggle bum when getting changed. I find the easy option with nappies is pull ups as they are much quicker to put on and take off of a moving child, also as I will be potty training in the new year as well. I was pleasantly surprised to find a pack of Morrison's own brand pull up nappies at just £3.69, that is almost half the price of big brands like pampers and huggies. In this pack you get 22 that makes them 16.7 pence each. Pampers are £5.99 for 18 that's 33.2 pence each.

                    So with the cheap price I was sure I would have to sacrifice quality but decided it was worth a try at least. In a way I was right, the quality is lacking, however this is not in protection from leaks as I thought it would be but in shape and comfort. For the most part I have had few problems; the only time has been over night which is not surprising as the big brands also leak after ten hours. The compromise was as I say in the design and fit; they are very big and bulky and in no way shaped to fit snug. They are a little restricting for my little one, and the material around the waist is not as soft as other brands.

                    Having said the bad points I would still buy them again so have come to the conclusion they are fairly good for the money and are worth buying if it makes a big difference to you in these difficult financial times like it does for us.

                      Advantages

                      Disadvantages

                      A cheaper nappy for indoors.

                      Okay i have seen reviews on Morrisons Nappies for under 1 year olds, and seeing as i have just bought the nappy pants (size 5) i thought i would share my experience of using them with you all.

                      * Coming across the product

                      I was in Morrisons doing a bit of shopping (obviously) and was looking for some nappies for our Aimee. After a bit of searching i realised that the usual brand of Pampers pull ups where nowhere to be seen.

                      Due to the fact that my little angle can take of the more traditional velcro nappy off, i opted to look for the Morrisons home brand of pull ups.

                      * Packaging

                      Even with the outer packaging being an orange/peach these nappies blended in with the other nappies really well and took me a while to find, also the fact that they were at the other end of the racking and not with the other morrisons nappies may have had something to do with it.

                      On the front you have a red square at a slanted angle with Morrisons tots and a love heart. Under this you have Nappy pants in large with letters and in smaller text you have " specially designed for kids on the go" and in a big blue rectangle it states that the nappies are Size 5, 12 - 25 Kg / 27 - 55 Lbs and as absorbent as a nappy with the convenience of a pant.

                      On the back of the pack is a weight chart to make sure you get the right size, and a diagram of the nappy explaining the nappy itself, tear away sides, stretchy super fit, easy on and off.. ect. ect.

                      * The Nappy Itself

                      All i have to say is that i am glad i have a little girl, as these nappies look very frilly around the waist line, where they have pulled the elastic together and rather fluffy with a ruffled edge around the leg lines.

                      All around the nappy 2/3rds of away down you have pictures of animals. They don't look as good as Pampers but who really cares as there only going to get pooped in (hmnn ... okay maybe me). Aside from looks are they as good as Pampers....

                      To be honest with you i would say that i have noticed no difference.

                      As of late i have noticed that the pampers i was using leaked crysals over my babys bottom, and i don't seem to get this when using the Morrisons ones.

                      The fit does not seem to be as snug as Pampers as they Morrisons nappy does seem a little wider ( i will opt for a size down next time) but i have not noticed any major leakage with these nappies as i normally change Aimee as soon as she has pooped and on a regular basis.

                      I will add that when we was in the car her nappy did leak a little. I'm not sure if this was due to her seating position or the nappy itself . But i have not had any problems indoors.

                      Another think about the nappies is when on long journies in the car and you can't change babies bum. If they have been drinking lots of juice due to the warm weather, watch out for the sagging, due to the nappies elastic around the leg .... you will probably find the crotch around the knees somewhere.

                      After use you can just split the sides and you have a stip of plaster looking material at the back of the nappy which you can tape the nappy up with after folding it into a ball.

                      * Night Time

                      I have used these of a night time, and have found no problems with them if you change babies bum before going to bed and as soon as they get up in the morning.

                      * My overall thoughts

                      Okay they are not the most attractive nappy in the world but seeing as i only paid £3.98 for a packet of 20 nappies where i was paying nearly £6 for 22 of Pampers. It can't be too bad .

                      What i am also planing to do from now on is use the Morrisons brand indoors and use Pampers when going out ( just incase).

                      My biggest problem with the nappy is the look, as they do look quite girlie to me, which may bring on embarassment in future years to come for any little boys, when mummy is getting the family snaps out.

                      Overall 4 out of 5 stars. -1 for looks and -1 for elastic quality and finally +1 on again due to the fact they don't leak crystals.

                      Don't get me wrong they do the job. But i would still prefer to use Pampers if going out for the day or a wedding (if you get what i mean).

                      Thanks for reading all .... and be lucky.

                      Advantages

                      Disadvantages

                      If you are on a budget and want quality, buy these.

                      My son is 7 months old, but a little bit smaller than most babies his age. He currently wears size 2 nappies. I found some brands quite bad, they felt weird and kept leaking. I started shopping at morrisons about 3 months ago as I heard about how much it has improved since Safeway. I love "baby shopping" I could spend hundreds of pounds on just tins of food, if I see a tin he has not tried yet, it is in the trolley. I get to the nappy section and see all your well known brands that are supposed to be the best ones. I decide to buy Morrisons own as I dont have that much money. Gets home and put one on him, amazing!! They fit perfectly, look snuggly, have pretty pictures on (I like pretty things) and do not leak at all. I don't know why more mums and dads don't use these. I have told my friends who have babies about them. When you have a child, you have to start budgeting money, these will save you loads. I now buy in bulk and will not be going back to any other brand. Buy buy buy!!!

                        Advantages

                        Disadvantages

                        I have just bought Morrisons nappies by chance and what a great product. I wish I had found them sooner I would have saved a fortune. I have always had problems with nappy rash as my son has very sensitive skin and usually when he wakes up he is sore but since using Morrisons nappies that is no more. These nappies have a cloth like material for comfort and resealable tabs which is great if like my son he puts his belly out while getting changed. Also these nappies come in packs of 24 which is great value for £4.99 I think. Compared to other lead brand names I found that thee nappies were and still are great value for money. Another great plus with these nappies is they come in a variety of sizes fom mini (newborn) to extra large which is up to 66lb. My 3 year old son still wears them now as he has special needs and I found Morrisons nappies to be better than the ones supplied by the hospital for him as they did not leak even after a full day out without being changed. I have used many of the more expensive nappies and the more well known brands but I find Morrisons nappies to be one of the best I have tried. My children now use Morrisons nappies and since they have been using them Ive had no wet clothes or wet patches on my knee of a morning when they wake up. I find these nappies great and well worth the money. I would recomend them to any person who is looking for a dry day or night for there child.
