I always stick to fragrance free for nappy changes. My preference is Johnsons. The huggies are ok but do rip easily.
I just buy cheaper wipes (not necessarily fragrance free) for hands, meals times etc. I am currently trying out the big w dymples fragrance free wipes (cheap) and so far so good too.
Like the others said I wouldn't stock up on too many nappies as different brands work at different stages. I've always used huggies overnight (boy) though but do find I need to move up a size way before he reaches the suggested weight on the box.

Depends what u mean by quality?
If u are after some that aren't packed full of chemicals then I like Gaia, pure organic and wotnot wipes.
Value for money then dymples from big w are good but I won't touch them anymore because of the ingredients.

I'd just buy a few different packets to see which you prefer. I tired Johnson and Johnson, Curash and Huggies - my preference is Huggies but they were all fine.

I bought a few different types of wipes & ended up loving the Curash ones. I buy them in a 10 pack now I think it is. I didn't want to buy many more because until I had the baby I didn't know if there would be any reaction or not to a particular type/brand.
I also had only bought 3 packets of nappies & got DH to go out & get more. I had heaps of friends who bought lots of newborn size when they were pregnant & their bub wasn't in them for long so they had a lot of spare nappies left over. We ended up having a tiny baby so we could've used them if we had bought more but I'd prefer it the way we did.

We made the mistake of stocking up on Huggies wipes only to find that bub reacted to them. Luckily I have a few friends also having babies this year so I have shared them.
For my bub we use WotNot naturals - buy online in bulk or the wipes supporting Red Nose

I've tried most wipes and like the pink curash ones the best, but also currently like the Coles Little Explorer ones. For nappies we use Huggies for the newborn stage, then go to comfy bots during the day and Huggies at night. It really is trial and error - grab one of each when they're on special and see what suits you and bub best

We have tried many different wipes over the years and recently discovered the Kirkland Brand from Costco.....best wipes ever!

We bought curash soap and fragrance free ones. DS was allergic. We tried others, and ended up using Water Wipes. It's 99.9% water and 0.1% fruit extract. No chemicals. The wipes are thick and quite large. They're the only ones he hasn't had a reaction to, and have been great quality. You can get them from Coles. Otherwise you can buy a bulk pack online, but I've never seen them in a shop in bulk.
