If, like me, you love a good bargain, then grabbing baby products in discount supermarket, Aldi, may be just the thing for you. The retailer has seen considerable growth over recent years and their products have won multiple awards and endorsements. Including, numerous Which Best Buys and Netmums Best Loved Supermarket of 2017. With babies being costly and the price of baby items mounting up, utilising Aldi’s baby products is a great way to save money on essential baby items.
Aldi’s nappies are an absolute bargain and I highly rate them. In the Mother & Baby Awards 2018, Aldi’s nappies, which are available in sizes newborn to 6, won gold in the Best Value Disposable Nappy category. They are also an absolute bargain when compared in price to big brands. A pack of 24 size 1 nappies currently sell for just 95p. We have had a couple of occasions where Little E’s nappy has leaked overnight and I always found that it was at this point we needed to go up to the next size.
When breastfeeding didn’t work out for me, we moved onto formula. Aldi’s Mamia formula is amazing value at just £7.29 for a 900g tub. Mums and dads may think that for the price Aldis formula must be inferior to leading brands, such as Cow & Gate and Aptimil, however, the infant formula industry is highly regulated by the UK government and manufacturers must adhere to strict regulations. Therefore, Aldi’s baby formula quality is as good as any other brand and my little one is thriving off it.
Baby bath and shampoo
Bath time is fun time in our house. Little one loves getting in the tub, surrounded by bubbles and rubber ducks. We previously used a leading brand of baby bath, but found it was a little rough on her skin. When we changed to Aldi’s Mamia bath, I was instantly impressed by it’s subtle fragrance, the amount of bubbles it made and how kind it was on my daughter’s skin. Their shampoo smells lovely too and lathers up and washes off well.
Aldi’s baby food range is, understandably, limited. However, the selection they do have is budget friendly, appears to be tasty, judging by the speed my daughter eats it at, and comes in attractive packaging. During our first few weeks of weaning, the first product we tried was Aldi’s Mamia porridge which was definitely one of Little E’s favourite foods. Since then, we’ve used their fruit pots, biscotti biscuits, apple rice cakes and tomato wheels, all of which have gone down a treat.
Aldi regularly hold a baby event where they sell a range of baby items at great prices. We picked up our high chair for less than £15 last year. And when our stroller broke,we grabbed an replacement from Aldi for just £30. They frequently have books for sale, too, and I’ve lost count of the number I’ve picked up all for less than a couple of pounds. We even picked up a great cot mobile for £15 just after Little E was born last year and she absolutely loves it.
With their great quality and low price, Aldi’s baby products are ideal for families looking to save cash on their baby expenses.
