Review: ASDA Little Angels Newborn nappies

Newborns need quite a lot of "equipment" and one necessity if definitely nappies. You will go through so many of them especially, as we found out, when breastfeeding.

With my first two we formula fed and found that we only had one poo a day. Fast forward to having O and breastfeeding I found that is is true what they say - a baby can poo after every feed!

So of course having a nappy you can trust is certainly worth searching for. We use a mixture of cloth nappies and disposable nappies and have been testing out some ASDA’s Little Angels Newborn and comparing them to other nappies that we have been using. The first, and I think one of the most important, thing that we noticed was how soft they are in comparison to other brands we have used this time round (Ocado and LIDLs). I actually can not stress just how much softer they are. I think this could be the reason that when we used these O was comfortable and when I used the other nappies he got nappy rash.

One of handy feature the nappies have, and one we used a lot when in the maternity unit and in the first week, was the wet indicator strip. With breastfeeding and O losing a lot of his birth weight by day 3 we had to really ensure that he was producing wet nappies and sometimes when very tiny you can't really tell if a nappy is wet or not but these strips to the worry out of all that. I wish we had this when we had F as we (us and the midwives) could never tell if he had produced a wet nappy or not some times.

These are great value for money (you can get a 70pk for £3) so when they do go through nappies like they are going out of fashion you don't have to worry so much about the cost.

The nappies have a secure flexi-fit which helps prevent leaks up babies back - and so far we have been close but never escaped out of these nappies when O has leaked out of other nappies.

They are designed with the umbilical cord in mind, with a contoured area to help prevent irritation. We still ended up folding it over a bit due to advice from the midwife but it certainly helped make it easier to avoid touching the cord.

The nappies also have a size-up guide that helps you work out when it is time to chose the next size of nappy.

We were sent some nappies for free for the purposes of this review. All opinion is mine and mine alone.
