    This is very odd. The FAQs don't really tell the story. I wonder what's happened. As far as I was aware, they were selling well and giving Pampers a run for their money.

    Thanks OP - I was just about to post the same! I managed to get 2 Huggies giga boxes (160 nappies) in size 4 yesterday from Mothercare for £17.49 each (£34.98 in total) and free delivery. Amazon had the same deal.

    Obviously just not a profitable enough business line for them. Volume sales doesn't necessarily equal profitability.

    huggies tend to leak in my experience. And are generally known for it.

    Try aldi nappies I swear by them x

    Personally found both Huggies and Pampers to leak with my son (15wks) I regularly use Tescos nappies as they don't leak and are cheaper. Have used Aldi and found them to be better than the 2 big brands also.

    I recently tried Boots own brand ones and THERE IS ABSOLUTELY NO DIFFERENCE in them - apart from the boots ones have cows on and huggies have tigger! My son is a "funny shape" and EVERY other brand on nappies have leaked or not fit, i only bought the Boots ones as we live in the middle of nowhere and I was desperate - but pleasantly surprised! - Thankfully my son is pretty much ready for toilet training, just waiting until christmas is over and done with and he is back in his "normal" routines...

    Apparently, they will be concentrating on the pull ups instead.

    Im gutted just started trying for our 4th child and buggies have been the best nappies ever, never had any leaks or anything. Might have to start stocking up now.
    Is thankful to those who have shared their
    fortune with those less fortunate
    than themselves - you know who you are!
  • MummyMcQ
    Please don't take this personally! Obviously everyone has their own favourite brands for their children, can I suggest that for those who do prefer Huggies that this thread focuses on Huggies offers so that those who do want to buy them can locate the best deal? Rather than a debate on the best nappies - as all of us know its a bit of trial and error to locate the best nappy for your children! What works for one child does not always work for others.

    Tescos nappies are the only brand to actually split when I used them. Huggies all the way

    I used to use a variety of Pampers, Boots or Tesco's. I never really liked Huggies! I'll keep an eye out for discounted Huggies though for my sister who is expecting, thanks for the heads up!

    Not fair, I use these in all my nappy cakes as they're what people want. Any customers i've had said "Please don't use Pampers".
    £2014 in 2014 = £2089.52 - £14025.96 / £13694.07. The Other One: £12042.81£11540.91 Wine is like opera. You can enjoy it even if you don't understand it and too much can give you a headache the next day J

    re huggies
    I used all the main brands but found aldi nappies to be the best (and cheapest!) for both of my boys. They fitted well and never leaked, highly recommended
