Thread: Obtaining Decent Diapers In The UK

    Default Obtaining Decent Diapers In The UK

    Hello all. Since Abena don't make the plastic backed X-Plus's in the UK any more, I've been finding sourcing and obtaining high quality, extremely absorbent diapers (nappies!) very tricky.

    I don't have a massive budget for premium DL diapers like the Cuddlz or to be able to order from US/Belgium. I'm not a massive fan of Tena or Molicare also.

    Can anyone suggest any high quality, super absorbent plastic-back diapers available in the UK?

    I'd like to add to this saying that although I really like the cuddlz brand they only seem to be good if all you want is to feel "little" with a cute print and plastic crinkly backing, out of the last 15 that I have worn recently 12 of them have leaked after about half the capacity than a lille supreme fit maxi would securely hold and at 14 for 10 compared to lille's 12 for 20 I can forego the plastic backing to get twice as many and more absorbent nappies.

    in UK I can vouch for incontinencechoice providing great service and prices for quality nappies, no plastic backed ones though.

    saveexpress is supposed to be really good and has a huge range and I believe they may still have the original abena's (they did have at least) and other plastic backed nappies. may need a german translator though as their built in one on the site only translates certain parts.

    As above, saveexpress.de is where I get mine from now. Just look for the magic word "folie" in the description for plastic-backed diapers. :-)

    What are the shipping times like from SaveExpress? Pricing seems pretty good, might have to try them out next time I need to stock up!

    I second saveexpress.de as the suggestion. Easy to get plastic backed X-pluses and they shipped them really quite quickly. The only downside is navigating a German website, but Google translate is your friend.

    I think it was about 3 or 4 days... I remember I was quite surprised as I thought it would take longer. I seem to remember there was online tracking, so I could confirm a day or two in advance when the parcel would arrive. And I was able to specify that the parcels could be left in the shed if I wasn't in. So, all in all, it was as easy and predictable as ordering from the UK (it just took slightly longer).

    They really need to get the site translated properly, though!
