mamia comfy-up pants (review)

I have always been a brand snob and in the past wouldn’t  have dreamt of using anything other than Pampers or huggies nappies. I was having  a chat with a friend one day when we came to the subject of nappies and she told me that she had been buying mamia nappies from aldi’s for her daughter and was very impressed.

The next time i was in aldi I popped down to the nappy aisle and had a quick peep at their selection. priced at £3.49 for a packet of 22 nappies i was slightly dubious about how effective they would be but decided to give them a try anyway and im really glad that I did. They have  a cute picture of an elephant on the front with the back of the elephant on the back so that you know which way they should go on. My son really likes the elephant image and calls them his ele-pants (clever boy lol)

Some pull-ups can feel quite thick and i have found that they don’t offer much non-leak protection for over-night  wear. mamia pull-ups feel fairly thin and rayyan has never had any leakage problems even though he’s not 100% dry at night yet. They are really easy to pull up and even though rayyan has fairly chunky thighs he’s never had any problem comfort wise (believe me when i tell you he would let me know if he did 🙂 )  To remove you just need to tear the seams on the sides of the pull-ups and they come off really easily.

Taking into account the price and the effectiveness of these pull-ups im very impressed and now use these on a regular basis instead of my usual pull-ups

personal rating 10/10

Huggies pure and natural baby wipes.

I bought a few packets of huggies pure and natural baby wipes when they were on offer in tescos last week. I usually don’t purchase this brand as priced at £2.59 per 64pk when not on offer. i feel they are too expensive.

The packet is chunky and has a really cute picture of a little baby in a hat on the front. On opening the packet the wipes have  a gentle    scent which isn’t unpleasant but doesn’t stand out and each wipe has little images of teddies printed on it. My son loves these little teddies and calls huggies the “teddy wipes”

They are great for cleaning little hands and for wiping down furniture etc.. but not so great on cleaning little bottoms… The wipes are too thin and when taking them out of the packet you need 2 hands. As you grab one wipe the rest just keep on coming as well, unless you use your other hand to separate them, Which is far from ideal when you are changing a nappy! I have also noticed that if you don’t leave a wipe protruding from the packet they are really hard to get a grip of the next time you come to use them and more often than not they tear during use.

Summary.

Great for cleaning hands/faces but not so good for using during nappy changes.Not the best wipes on the market and I won’t personally be buying them again as I don’t feel they offer what I need. 5/10
