No Date night? Nappy problems…

…It is Nappy Problems! 

We’ve all been (still are) there. The Nappy problems.

Problem in the sense that you have a bunch on the market but still, in the 1st year of your bundle of joy, you will spend a lot (of money and nappies).

So maybe Date Nights are going to be less and less, because the money is going to (majorly) Nappies.

RJ is 3 now, is starting potty training but still he wears now pull ups.

I have been searching and trying different brands that would make him feel comfortable and easy for him to pull down and up, and learn. Like everyone of us had been through.

But have you thought about researching it? Have you analyzed price vs quality? As a parent of a 3 year old, I starting to make sums of what I have been spending.

I actually like Aldi Mamia. I have trusted them since Rj was born, on their products, from nappies, pull ups, wipes, shampoo, baby food, etc.

I trust them, use them, tried them and my son and wallet supports this blog post!


Check these prices when I was shopping:


Right?? It’s a win win.

And here is the study that Aldi made regarding the Nappies problems which I thought I would share with you.

It makes you think…and look at your bank account.

83% of new parents missing out on Date Night following their new arrival.

49% of new parents say date-night is a thing of the past because budgets are tighter
New parents could save over £400 a year by implementing simple switches such as using own-brand nappies compared to the market leader

Having a baby is a life-changing event, not just emotionally, but financially and socially too.
With studies showing babies can cost as much as £11,498 in the first year, it’s no surprise mum and dad’s social life is often put on hold.

In fact, new research from Aldi Mamia has found that 78%1 of first-time parents have had fewer or no date-nights since baby arrived with nearly half (49%)  citing less money than before as the main reason.

With a newborn’s nappy needing to be changed up to 12 times a day, reviewing the nappies you are using is a simple way to start saving money.

At 14p per nappy, parent’s using the nation’s leading nappy brand could spend as much as £613.20 on nappies in the first year alone (£1.68 per day and £11.76 per week).

But, by swapping to Aldi Mamia there are huge savings to be made…

At less than 5p (4.6p) a nappy, Aldi Mamia parents are spending as little as 55p per day, £3.85 a week, £16.50 a month, and just £198 per year in comparison.  A huge yearly saving of £415.20, or £34.60 a month – enough to make sure Mum and Dad can afford a babysitter for a well-deserved night off!

Aldi Mamia’s nappies don’t just come with a great price tag, they’ve scooped Gold for four consecutive years at the Mother & Baby Awards in the Best Disposable Nappy category and were awarded 10 accolades at the Prima Baby Awards 2016, with the Newborn and Ultra Dry Nappies taking Gold in the nappy categories. And if that wasn’t enough the entire range of nappies has been endorsed by the Good Housekeeping Institute.

Julie Ashfield, Joint Managing Director of Corporate Buying at Aldi, said: “At Aldi, we’re committed to offering our customers quality products, at prices that simply won’t be beaten. Mamia’s award winning nappies are a perfect example of this. Costing a fraction of what competitors charge, parents can rest assured they are using the best quality nappies for their baby without paying premium prices. This means, a few extra pounds to spend on whatever you wish – perhaps a date for mum and dad!”


Have you thought about this? Did you made the swap? Let me know about it on the comments below.

Thank you to Aldi Mamia.
