For any Australians on here, catch.com.au is selling pampers size 8 from an Australian reseller/ importer. I’ve ordered some today to try out. Came in at $44 delivered for a 52 pack

That's good that you can get them down under.

I wish there was somewhere I could buy sleepy nights or some of your interesting variates of gendered Huggies.

I still find it strange that pampers aren't widely available in Australasia.

Many, many years ago Pampers came, they saw...and were conquered by Huggies.

I don't understand why Pampers would manufacture these diapers but then make them hard to find/buy.

Also, these "size 8" have a lower weight (37+lbs) than the size 7 cruisers (41+lbs) here in Canada. 🤨

Confused.

There very easy to find in the UK, every supermarket sells them.
Quite often they will have empty shelves by the end of the day so the demand is there.

The problem is, unlike the rest of the world, pampers never caught in Australia where Huggies are #1.
I guess it didnt make sense for them to import to aus them with little demand.

Here's my pseudoscientific size comparison between Pampers size 8 and the largest size of other nappies in Australia.

The contenders: Pampers size 8 (obviously...), Huggies Ultra Dry nappies for girls size 6 and BabyLove Cosifit nappies size 6.

Side by side out of the bag, the Huggies nappy is easily the cutest...but, to the point, all three nappies are about the same unopened.

Stretched out best I could, again very similar, although the Pampers nappy wasn't cooperative.

And as Buffalo Springfield didn't sing, for what it's worth here's a thickness comparison (top to bottom it's Pampers, Huggies, BabyLove):

How any of this would work with a real baby, well you'd need a real baby to work it out as they will stretch out when applied to a real, living, kicking human being. But purely out of the bag, the Pampers were a miss for me: thinner and not as soft, but they might well do the job they were intended to. I just can't go past how cute and soft the Huggies nappy is.
