Default Pampers nappies

Morning expats and mummy's.

We've been here a week now and run out of my trusty supply of pampers nappies. In true open minded ness ive bought huggies and put my 9 month old son into them. I didn't get on with their fit back in the uk but I'm prepared to try. However two nights later and two completely wet beds (my son in wet vest, babygrow, wet sleeping bag and soaked through to the mattress), I'm desperate to find out where I can by pampers baby dry.

Can anyone out there help?

Unfortunately Pampers aren't sold in shops - only from the website in Auckland! We've resorted to ordering them online as we were having similar problems (nappy rash being worse than it's ever been). Huggies just didn't work for us (in the uk or here) and Treasures are awful, imo.

The price of the Pampers is extortionate but then again all baby items are expensive here and we're happy to pay the extra for our daughter to be comfortable.

I've just recently tried baby love nappies, bought them in New World, and have found them to be really good plus they fit my little one better than huggies.

Treasures are best for night time, win hands down, I find huggies great for day time though... I have not long run out of big supply of pampers and to be honest now that I have fully adjusted it is no problem...

Treasures are really good for my little girl been wearing then from 10 months to 23 months now, they are bulkier than UK nappies and don't feel as soft but she has never complained about them (she would let me know) and I have never had any accidents with them other than when she has has poorly tummy. If you bulk buy them as well off tinternet sometimes it works out cheaper than the super markets. supposedly they are made in nz too so can't be bad.

I'm loving living in nz so far but boy is baby stuff way behind the uk! Mostly it's nappies I'm frustrated with but food is crap too. I'm not one of those 'make it all myself' mums I'm afraid - I did with no1 and she spat it back at me (literally), so no2 gets the odd thing we have mushed but mostly lives off jars. But they are sooooo expensive and the selections are bad. I feel bad for him. Being no2 though he is pretty chilled so isn't bothered I'm sure...... But poor thing. Is there a secret place I'm missing for baby needs or is it just a bit baffling here?

Welcome to NZ. The land of 'cooking from scratch', poor choice in microwave meals, frozen pizza's and baby food.

Having raised two kids here, cooking your own baby food is by far the best route. It's much cheaper and better for bubs. My wife cook up batches and put them into ice cube containers in the freezer. It was then easy as to prepare meals.

Its probably not what you want to hear, but as you have discovered choice is limited here.

Our local Pak & Save imports Pampers Nappies from the UK.

They don't last long on the shelves though so it helps to have an insider friend to give the head's up as to when they're back in stock ;-)

However, if we can't get Pampers, we'll resort to Treasures.
