Well lets face it Huggies are not half as good as Pampers,they dont seem to absorb the wetness as well as pampers,so i will not miss them if they disappear off our shelves!

Huggies are useless for babies but their pyjama pants are the best on the market and I would miss them as the mother of two autistic children who use them during difficult periods.

Huggies are much better then pampers..where they are bulky and makes their bottoms look huge. I also mother to autistic child and these are the only ones that don't cause irritation. Shame they are going.

I disagree, for both my children pampers leaked all the time, i've used Huggies on both. If it wasnt for my youngests sudden allergic reaction at 10 months old to both Huggies & pampers i would too be missing huggies.

Now its Natys all the way :)

Pyjama Pants are not being withdrawn it is just the normal nappies

Wow so much opinions on nappies? Surely a nappies just a nappy? Honestly I buy what ever brand has a deal on that week, never noticed a difference to be honest, stick it on baby's butt, job done!

I think huggies are better in the small sizes (dont chafe the kids ,legs and has a part cut out for belly button clip) but prefer pampers as the kids get bigger.

Huggies are awful leaked an bulky pampers definitely the best alot of mum's must agree cause thier pulling huggies out of UK because they can't compete even with dramatically slashed prices mum's aren't buying them it's costing more to send them here than they are selling.

As far as I am aware, it's only the nappies that are being discontinued. The 'pyjama pants' and wipes will still be made :)

I maybe wrong, but I thought they were made in Hull, East Yorkshire ??

If parents used cloth some of the time , they would see the difference in money and in 'waste, try g nappy, a great new hybrid, I've used very nappy available ! Try it, it gets you thinking alternatively, don't be a slave to advertising/marketing, when babysitter couldn't work the nappies out , she invented a tea towel/ tesco bag combo ! It's only baby wee ( poo dropped in loo in paper liner ) 60 degree wash with your towels.

You obviously don't have children with sensitive skin. I have tried various other non-Huggies or Pampers brands from supermarkets and they always brought out my children in nappy rash. Huggies and Pampers were the only two brands not to cause this reaction. Even the very expensive Nature brand did the same. Other parents have told me the same story.

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!

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.

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'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

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.
