Some of the first nappies we tried when Bear was born were ASDA Little Angels newborn ones, they were amazing on him & so easy to use, such great all rounders. There were no leaks or poo-namis either! (Well, he had a couple but he was newborn & they were to be expected ha!) We haven’t really used them since the size 2’s (people always want to buy nappies for us which usually happen to be other brands because of where they shop.) But we were recently given the chance to try out the newly designed & improved ASDA Little Angels Comfort & Protect Nappies* & (*Spoiler Alert*) it’s safe to say they have taken over from other nappies we were already using.
So yeah, first things first. Asda have totally re-designed their Little Angels range of nappies to these Comfort & Protect style. The nappies now have a lovely stretchy back which helps keep those poo-namis at bay and also ensures they fit comfortably for your babe. They also have elasticated bands around the legs. Providing up to 12 hours of dryness through the night is also an improvement they’ve made to ensure our babes sleep comfortably & soundly & no wet beds to change at 2am.
We had such a positive experience with these nappies, I honestly could not fault them one bit! (I’m gonna sound really preachy now but we actually LOVE the nappies & they have worked so well for Bear). Because he now sleeps straight through without waking (usually, this may sound different on twitter but honestly, it’s just such a shock to the system when he doesn’t) that we need nappies to stay dry for longer to help him have a good night’s sleep. He’s a major sleep crawler too (and rolls, he rarely stays in the same position whilst asleep) so something that is comfortable on him and enables him to move around is a bonus! He does get really stressed when he’s restricted, I had an awful time in hospital with him when he was born as he just DID NOT want to be swaddled & of course, that’s what the midwives did.
One thing I just HAVE to point out about these nappies is the indication for when you need to size up. I always become a little unsure when he’s in between sizes, whether that’s clothes or nappies, so having an indication really does help. Basically, on the front there is a blue patch (but it looks like its part of the design, good huh?!) with 4 white vertical lines and then there’s just white up to the flaps. So when you’re fastening the nappy, if the stickers seal in the blue section, you’re all good size-wise. If the stickers only stretch as far as the white section on the outside, it’s time to size up. SO CLEVER!
And how cute is the little elephant design on the front?! We use the nappies for night time and the first morning use and they’ve just worked so well. They’re also really lovely and thin and don’t feel plasticy one bit, they’re also not as noticeable as some other nappies we’ve tried which is good as I then know they won’t bother him while he’s climbing and destroying the house. I also haven’t noticed any unexplained nappy rash or red marks from the bands since we’ve started using them which is a huge bonus and I imagine every parent worries a little when a situation like that arises.
So I’ve been a little preachy here, and yes they were gifted to us, but we’re totally converted back to the brand (it helps we have 2 ASDA stores within walking distance too!) and they have just been such wonderful nappies. They price at £3.50 for a regular sized pack & £5.50 for a larger pack so really easy on the pocket too. I have bought them myself since we tried them out as we just really like them & they suit bear well, he’s not even fussed ha!
