Are Aldi’s Baby Products Any Good?

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.

Nappies

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.

Formula

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.

Baby food

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.

Baby Event

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.

  1. We have an aldi coming to our town. This was very helpful. It will be interesting to learn a new store but looking forward to their prices!

    1. We have so many popping up in our town at the moment. I hope you like their products too when they open.

  2. Babies are so expensive, so it’s great for new mums to know they are getting good value. Cheaper isn’t always better, but this useful review shows that quite often it’s just as good. Aldi are doing really well with their own brand products – I’ve seen a huge buzz about their candles and home fragrance, and also their beauty products. Glad you feel the same about the baby brand. #Blogstravaganza

    1. I agree that cheaper isn’t always better. I’ve tried some other own brand nappies and thought they were awful! But, I love Aldi’s stuff.

  3. I haven’t tried any of these products. Although my boys are a little older I’m sure that they’d appreciate the foaming bubble bath! Thanks for sharing with #Blogstravaganza 🙂 x

    1. I’m sure they would 🙂

  4. Brilliant post I will be sure to try their formula love their nappies definitely better than the leading brands which I have found leak a lot. I have yet to have one of Aldi’s nappies leak even with a poonami!! #DreamTeam

    1. I think their formula is really good. We’ve had a few leaks overnight, but when I went up a size, that stopped.

  5. i have always been a huge fan of aldi products and used their nappys years ago for my elsest and love their wipes #dreamteam

    1. I’m glad you like them too 🙂

  6. Popping back from #DreamTeam – and reminding myself to put the bubble bath on my shopping list! 😉
