Lidl nappies are some of the cheapest on the market. Find out whether parents rate them highly and see how they compare with nappies from brands including Pampers and Aldi.
We asked thousands of UK parents to rate big-name nappy brands, including Lidl, on value for money, comfort, fit, ease of use and absorbency.
Of more than 3,000 parents surveyed in February 2018, around 8% had used Lidl nappies in the past year. This is far less than rival brand Aldi Mamia which had been used by 31% of parents in the past year.
We asked parents to score each nappy brand on five key nappy criteria: ease of use, value for money, fit, comfort and absorbency. We used these results to give star ratings out of five, alongside customer satisfaction scores.

How to save money on disposable nappies
Even if you're using a cheaper brand such as Lidl, disposable nappies work out more expensive than reusable nappies. Follow these tips to save money on disposable nappies:
- Buy larger packs to reduce costs. But be wary of bulk-buying too much in one size – especially for newborns and younger babies – as your baby may outgrow them sooner than you expect.
- Take advantage of special offers. If you're not loyal to one particular brand, special offers can really help you to save. The competition between nappy manufacturers is such that offers are often available. Subscription services such as Amazon Family offer up to 20% off nappies, including Pampers.
- Look out for free nappies and money-off nappy vouchers through baby clubs.
