Thread: Ordering Diapers in the UK

  1. #1

    Default Ordering Diapers in the UK

    Right, first a warning. I don't mean to sound bitchy or anything but every time there is a thread like this there is someone who says "Just go to Walmart and buy some" or some such. I do not want this. There is no Walmart here (though ASDA is part of the walmart family supposedly) and if there was a shop I could just go and buy from instead of ordering (except for boots - I'd rather not have padding then have what boots has to offer) I would already have done it. Trust me - not saying it will save us all a lot of time


    OK - this is the first time I've been living, more or less, on my own. As such I see it as my first chance ever to order diapers, been as when I was at home my Mum was NEVER out of the house for more than an hour inside delivery times for most sane companies. Being my first chance to I naturally want to but I am unsure. I am looking for advice on what to order, where to get it from and any general stuff I could probably find in the wiki XD

    I have a few requirements.

    1) Cheap - I am an impoverished penniless student

    2) Discrete - Just how discrete depends on the next point. I certainly don't want it advertising it's contents to anyone who casually glances. Depending on when it is delivered I might even not want it noticeable for someone who looks more closely. I have my own room and stuff - but it is still a shared flat.

    3) Good delivery - How postage works for parcels at my Uni is either you pick it up at the door of the flat when it comes or you collect if from the post office which involves an extra charge and a bloody steep hill. If it comes to the door when you aren't there someone else will probably leave it outside your door for all to see.


    When it comes to being in my flat I am around at the weekends, and on some Tuesdays from after 10:30 in the morning. I also have Wednesday afternoons if necessary. As you can see I have rather specific delivery hours so where ever I order from should be pretty consistent with delivery if possible. Weekend delivery is the best if it can be done. If not then I want a company with a good record for turning up when it says it will.


    So any good tips for cheap, discrete companies with reliable delivery. Or just other advice about ordering in general. The more info you have the better.

    Thanks all

    I'm sorry, I want to say Bambinos, but they're any thing but cheap. Even though they have very discrete, free, and reliable delivery, in the US, I'm not sure of there policy in the UK. Sorry I can't help you with this one.

    Dorset Nursing, everything is perfect and their customer service is great.

    Nothing to give away the contents, the dispatch note that is attached to the parcel does say Dorset Nursing Supplies but who really goes around looking at where things are from?

    I would recommend them 100% and they have Abena X-Plus Oh and it's next day delivery too.

    • Have a look on the links section, some of those are UK and compare to find the cheapest.
    • Amazon is starting to sell some pads too.
    • 90% of the time, the packages are discreet. The site should say.
    • Always check the Terms Of Service and Argeement.



    Hope this helps in some way.

    Just out of interest, do they use their own vans to deliver or do they use courier? From the website, I get the impression that it is their own vans :s

    They use CityLink (at least that's what they used for me). It arrived the day after I ordered it. However, no attepts had been made to make the parcel discrete. It cam in the original manufacturers box (Abena) with a shipping label that said 'Dorset Nursing Supplies'.

    Says on their website they have nothing on box to describe the product :s. I smell false advertising

    Mine came in the original Abena box, but they'd covered up anything that could identify what it was.. The only thing left was a M, which could mean anything.

    The dispatch note does say Dorset Nursing Supplies on it yes.

    You can also ask them to send them in plain boxes too if you wish and they will.

    I ordered 1 pack of X-Plus and they came in a CityLink bag so I guess you could also ask for that.

    They're really good with customer service too which is the most important

    I've used BlushingBuyer too, no problems with them either.

    Dorset do Saturday delivery, but you have to pay extra and contact them first.
