If you’ve found nappies from Aldi are slightly less absorbent than they used to be, you’re not alone…
Easily some of the best value single-use nappies on the market, coming in at 5p each, Aldi nappies are normally loved among parents.
However, the award-winning nappies have been changed to be less absorbent according to some unhappy parents.
Some also claim they are actually now smaller leading to more leaks.
Aldi has denied that the new batch has less absorbency, and say they are proud of their product.
Despite this, one mum wrote on Facebook: “I use both 4 and 4+ for my twins but opened a packet of 4+ that I bought last week and they are different from what they normally are.
“The feeling is different (softer), the green is paler and most importantly they are smaller and less absorbent (as I found out this morning as my daughter was wet through and this has never happened) than they usually are.
“There also seems to be less stretch in the fasteners.
“You can also see in the second picture that if I match up the line of the green waistband at the back, the waistband is longer but the actual absorbent ‘nappy bit’ is significantly smaller.”
One mum explained she’s had to ‘move onto Tesco Fred and Flo nappies’ because her daughter was ‘soaking through’ since around ‘a month ago’.
The store defended their product saying: “As the UK’s largest own-label nappy brand, our customers buy over a billion award-winning Mamia nappies each year.
“We made some improvements to our nappies last year, including improving absorbency and ensuring a more even distribution of fluid to give a better fit and reduce sagging.
“We’re always grateful for customer feedback, which helps with future product development.”

Greggs launches new vegan sausage butty and vegan ham and cheese baguette
Good news for vegans
In some good news for vegans, Greggs has announced it will be launching a vegan sausage butty and a vegan ham and cheese baguette.
The bakery chain has introduced vegan products in the past, including the now iconic vegan sausage roll – which caused much debate among the public.
Greggs also has a vegan steak bake on the menu, which is set to be joined by the Vegan Ham and Cheeze Baguette and Vegan Sausage Breakfast Roll.
A Greggs spokesperson told Metro.co.uk: “Over the coming weeks we’ll be trialling our delicious Vegan Ham and Cheeze Baguette and Vegan Sausage Breakfast Roll in a very small number of shops, with a wider launch planned for later in the year.”
This means vegans will soon have the option to grab a vegan breakfast butty and a baguette for their dinner.
The new sausages will be made with Quorn mycoprotein, and the breakfast butty will set you back £1.90.
Meanwhile, the ham and cheeze baguette will set you back £2.95, and will be made with Quorn mycoprotein ‘ham’ and cheddar flavoured vegan cheese slices.
It’s not yet been confirmed which shops will initially trial these two new additions to the menu.
Fingers crossed they land in a Manchester branch soon!
