Pampers Nappies: Where's Best To Buy Them Cheap?
By Anna Studman
We tracked the price of Pampers nappies over a year to find out where you can save money nappy shopping.
Pampers nappies are the most well-known in the UK, which is why for many new parents Pampers is their first choice when looking for a nappy for their newborn baby.
But Pampers is more expensive than own brands, and with a newborn powering through nappies – you'll be using between six and 12 a day to start with – changing your baby won't leave you with much spare change.
Thankfully, because supermarkets know parents buy a lot of Pampers, there are often Pampers offers to be had. But where should you shop to make sure your household budget isn’t blown by those frequent trips to the changing table if you're choosing Pampers?
We tracked the price of a 50 pack of Pampers Baby Dry Size 3 Midi nappies over the course of a year using the independent shopping website, MySupermarket.Our exclusive research could save you more than £16 a month, based on using eight of these nappies a day.
It reveals which store had the cheapest Pampers offers, and what the average prices were at each store – so you know where's best to shop, what's a decent price to pay for your Pampers and how much is too much.
Just like with other popular products, if you buy your nappies in bulk you will save. So we've also compared this size pack with the pack of 30 to see the price difference.
In addition, we've found that multibuy Pampers offers mean it's never worth buying an expensive full-priced pack, when you could get it for half the price.
