Girls I'm going to put something out there .... I used to be a devout Huggies nappy buyer and J&J wipes purchaser. I honestly never tried any other type of nappy and I was not prepared to sway. One day I sent my mum to get some Nappies and she picked up HOMEBRAND ones. My jaw hit the floor but I was completely out of nappies and had no choice but to use them. I was shocked to realise that for the first time my DS2 had no leaks. They didn't feel as crunchy as the Huggies and much to my disdain I was converted. After this I decided to give a cheaper brand of wipes a go. I bought the woolies select fragranced wipes. The scent is so nice I use them on myself. I have now converted many many brand snob friends because they've used my wipes and are amazed at just how great they are. They honestly exceed J & J in my opinion and although I was fuming inside when my mum brought those cheap nappies home she completely changed my view and my bank balance along the way
I still can't use homebrand toilet paper though and to be honest it doesn't stack up in many areas to me but I was pleasantly surprised with the nappies. We've still to this day over a year later never had a single leak. Although he only wears them at night now.
ETA- I used MCN on DS1 ... Had over 50 nappies for him ... Just didn't do out for DS2 do cost wasn't even a factor. They were actually just nicer in my opinion.
