For my 5yo I used babylove nappies and never had a problem. I also used cosifits and target daytime nappies with no problem. At the time all these brands had little pictures that faded/ran as the nappy got wetter. This was a great help to me as a brand new mum.
This time I have had help in a different way. I received several boxes and a couple of bags of Huggies newborn nappies as gifts and I have not needed to buy nappies since my baby was born.
Due to this I became an avid Huggies Lover.... however I have found that as my baby grew out of Huggies newborn size nappies that she was not big enough to go into the next size available in the box (90 nappies) which is Crawler size.
There is an Infant size available in bags (48 nappies) but that works out so much more expensive.
New born size only fit my baby for two months but Infant Size should fit my baby for at least 6 months based on QLD gov's avg growth charts (during which time she will also start to fit into crawlers).
It is frustrating me so much that Huggies do not supply their Infant size nappies to any supermarket or discount variety stores, although they are aware that their is a demand for them, and they do supply Mums Happy Nappies who charge a whopping price of approx $45 compared to the $30-$35 price the supermarkets charge for the boxes of newborn and crawler sizes. (the increase in cost probably covers their "free" delivery.
I have recently found out that Babylove have acted on my needs and they have an infant size available in a jumbo box from Big W for around $30-$35.
I'm really stressed out about all this because although I swear I'd nevr use Huggies I have found them to be really good but I can't justify paying so much extra when BabyLove are available at the shops.
Has anyone else felt like this and if so what did you do?
