Aldi has a new premium nappy range!
Ever since Reuben was a newborn, I’ve sworn by Aldi’s Mamia range. Their wipes have always been so soft and gentle on his delicate, eczema-prone skin and their nappies have never failed us. He’s just turned 3 and isn’t quite potty trained yet so we still use their pull ups and love them! They’ve just added a new range to their nappies, giving all us mama’s a bit more choice when it comes to our babies and we’ve been asked to trial them out. The new range doesn’t include pull ups just yet so we’ve been trying out the nappies instead, and spoiler alert - we’ve loved them!
Aldi's Mamia range offers the same quality that you get from expensive products but at much more affordable prices. They make stocking up on nappies and wipes much more affordable during your weekly shop, as we all know how expensive food shopping can be! The new premium nappies are simply a new addition to the Mamia range, and not a replacement for the amazing selection that they already have. They're just adding more options for parents so that you're not forced to stick to a specific type of nappy. The new nappies are currently only available in selected stories across the Midlands, Yorkshire, North East & North West. If they sell well I'm sure this will expand in the near future!
Every baby is different and you'll often hear that parents use completely different brands simply down to what works well for their own babies skin. Having more options at Aldi means that you're more likely to find a nappy that works well for you and your baby too. The nappies currently come in newborn size up to a size 5 with the prices varying from as little as 99p to £3.19. This is amazing value, especially for a premium range.
We’ve spent the last week in Prague and it was my first trip abroad solo with Ru, so it’s safe to say I was dreading it a little. I’m so used to having my car and just being able to chuck everything and anything in it, without worrying about being able to carry it all by myself or having nowhere to change him - I just use my boot! It’s quite anxiety inducing not knowing where you’re going to be able to change your little one or if you’ll be able to find changing stations in a foreign country and airport waiting times can be so long. The new nappies came in ideal as it actually made changing times much easier being able to lay the nappy down on the mat and then lay him onto it rather than trying to wriggle him into a pair of pull up pants in cramped toilets.
The premium range has been created with extra comfort and protection in mind, something that's really important to us as Reuben has very dry and sensitive skin and often gets rashes around his nappy area. Now that he's 3, he has become a little fussy over what he finds comfortable and will always tell me if he doesn't like the feel of his nappy or an item of clothing I put him in. I've had no complaints from putting him in the premium range so far, in fact whilst we were away he got into the habit of jumping on the bed in our hotel room every evening in his nappy after he'd been washed, so they must be comfy!
As an active three year old, he needs nappies that are flexible enough to stretch as he runs wild without the leaks. The last thing I want is to be worrying about changing his clothes every 5 minutes, particularly whilst we were abroad and had a limited supply of spare clothes with us. Thankfully, the nappies worked wonderfully and we didn't have a single leak. I wasn't able to change his nappy as often during the airport or flight, as you know how small plane toilets are and let's not even get into passport control and security queues! Ru didn't have any issues being left in his nappies for a bit longer though, meaning that the premium range is living up to the claims of extra comfort and protection.
The new range comes with a wetness indicator which I think is so handy, not only for new parents with newborns, but Reuben has asthma and gets quite unwell every couple of weeks. When he's not feeling like himself and he's poorly, he won't eat or drink much and it's so dangerous for little ones to not have any wet nappies. Ru's doctor will always ask me if he's been having wet nappies and if it's just few and small amounts of wee it can be impossible to tell. The wetness indicator will give me much more peace of mind knowing that when he's poorly I can just check it to make sure he isn't completely dry!
Overall I think the new premium range to Mamia's collection is a great a addition and one that we will definitely be using from now on along with our much-loved pull ups from the original range. If you have little ones or are expecting, it's definitely worth trying out both ranges and giving yourself more options.
