Try Moltex they are better quality and sometimes are on the offer on Amazon. I have tried all eco nappies, Moltex are far the best.

Huggies nappies have always brought my children out in a rash however my middle son still uses their night time pull ups and they really are fantastic. I won't miss the nappies and i'm glad the pull-ups are staying, although I'm tempted to look at the Lidl ones, do they come in the older 9-15 size?

Sorely missing Huggies' nappies as they were a perfect fit for my babies. Found that most other nappies are more appropriate for children on the chunky side (think above 50th centile in weight with 75th or lower centile in height). Pampers are an absolute disaster for slender babies, and don't they just stink? The sensitivity of the skin is another issue. Sainsbury's own brand seem as near as I could find to Huggies' shape and quality for older toddlers, but the best solution has been to get out of nappies earlier.

Costco stock huggies and they are at wholesale price too. Well worth paying annual membership for...

If you want Huggies get the Sainsbury's own brand - they took over the production facility from Huggies.

I tried both Huggies and pampers with both my children but when my son developed eczema caused by detergents at 2 weeks old I started using Naty nappies. They are amazing. They may feel stiffer and uncomfortable compared to the usual brands but I assure you they are not. The hold wetness and soiling as well as normal brands and they don't look bulky on baby even when full. I get them cheaper than usual brands via amazon sub and save and save even more as a prime customer. Naty will also send a free size1 sample for you to try.

My daughter and myself as a grandmother have always bought huggies, we are finding them very difficult to get a hold of, I managed to buy some a few months from a small store, they were only small packets but I snapped them up,. Pampers are no where near the quality of Huggies and they do not keep baby dry. Please bring back huggies.

Grandma and daughter.

I managed to find huggies in the Gordens chemist in my town, but I'm assuming once they run out that's it. I've had to ration them so she's in pampers during the day and huggies only at night. She also soaks everything with pampers, we go through about 10 pampers per day to try and keep her dry, yet only one huggies keeps her dry all night!

I agree! There's an 11 year age gap between my girls and I only used huggies for my first because everything else leaked and now I am doing 2 washloads every day because they no longer exist! Every nappy brand I try leaks and not just a little bit, I'm talking about my 16 month old being absolutely wet through!! :(

I don't understand why huggies are being withdrawn. My wee boy always leeked through every other brand except huggies, now 7 years later my baby girl is doing exactly the same thing. You would think seven years was plenty of time to sort out these problems but obviously they didn't bother trying.

What do we want?
When do we want them?

I've tried Pampers simply dry, Pampers baby dry, Pampers active fit, Morrisons own, Aldi's own, Asdas little angels, Sainsburys own, and tescos own AND THEY ALL LEAK SO MUCH! I am sick to death of having to change my daughter 3 times in the day and once every night because she has leaked through her nappy! BRING BACK HUGGIES Pleeeeeeeeeassseee! :(

I have had enough of pampers nappies, never liked them when my dd was small, bring huggies back is all I say. Shop brand nappies are just as rubbish.

My daughter is 6 months and from day 1 we discovered pampers are not a patch on huggies, they just won't keep her dry all night. She has very sensitive skin so we are very limited as to what we can use, shop own nappies are completely out of question, also the huggies pure wipes are the only ones her skin can tolerate all the others including other sensitive brands make her bum bleed if we used them. Luckily there is a shop near us that still stocks huggies nappies at the min

Hi MsBubbles
I am not sure how old your children are but I agree with the pyjama pants. That being said I also used Lidl ones and have to say they are perfect and a lot cheaper. Try them and if you don't like them keep them for the odd emergency.

I'm gutted to see Huggies going but I learned this was happening months ago so have been stocking up on boxes the past couple of months lol. I personally hate pampers they always leak and really stink as soon as my girls did a little trickle of wee in them! Whatever happens I won't be using pampers that's for sure

To be fair they leak something awful ! ,i can't count the time i had to change my boy's clothes because the nappy leaked through ,they also leave some gelly beads when left overnight ,quite hard to rinse off. They re also quite hard on the waistband and not elastic which makes them a bit less comfortable than Pampers.

I used huggies up until they changed to the new dry lock system then i have to say they went down hill from there as it caused severe rashes on both my daughters. Pampers were only any good when my daughters were new tiny babies but as they got older pampers began to leak and then as i said the new dry lock just causes severe nappy rash so i have missed huggies since they changed so it wont make a difference to me if they go as i now have to buy supermarkets own because they are the only ones that don't irretate my baby. I hope that what i have heard in huggies wipes still being on sale is true because they are the only wipes i can use for my daughters.

I personally & a few people I've spoken to have said they prefer Huggies! I have found no fault with the nappies, it might be the way some people put the nappy on their child, it may not be on propperly!
