Finding the right type of nappy will make life much easier. Bigger packs often give better value, but make sure it's a brand that suits you and your baby before making the investment.

Which nappy is right for your child?

4 7-18 15-40
5 11-25 24-55
Nappy pants 6 16+ 35+

(Baby and toddler nappies go from sizes 3 – size 5; Nappy pants go from size 3 – size 6.)

Newborn

You'll be changing your newborn's nappy regularly throughout the day and night, so it's important to find the right brand for you.

Ideal for:

Baby's first nappy.

Things to consider:

Newborn nappies are designed for your new baby's delicate skin. Look for wetness indicators that change colour to let you know when your baby needs changing.

Baby and toddler

Ideal for:

Active toddlers exploring their world.

Things to consider:

Older babies need their nappy changing five to eight times a day on average, although this varies. Once your little one is up on two feet, they need a nappy designed for a lively lifestyle. Elasticated legs and super-absorbency can make life easier and more comfortable.

Nappy pants

Ideal for:

Bigger boys and girls training to use the potty.

Things to consider:

Nappy pants are a great halfway between traditional nappies and real pants. Let your little ones take more control of their toilet training.
