Some of the items hitting the shelves include Lidl’s popular Lupily newborn nappies, which start from just 89p for a 24 pack. The nappies come with a clever indicator to say how wet the nappy is by changing colour. Now you will always know when the nappy should be changed.

Lidl’s budget rival Aldi boasts the Mamia range of baby products. The range is award-winning and it one of the UK’s leading Baby and Toddler brands for new parents.

In 2016, Aldi bagged a total of 16 gongs for nappies, baby-friendly laundry products, organic baby food and baby wipes.

Tony Baines, Joint Managing Director of Corporate Buying at Aldi, said: “We’re proud to be recognised as the number one retailer for baby and toddler products.

“At Aldi, we always strive to meet the needs of our consumers, enabling regular shoppers to get more of what they want for less.”

But Lildl can still stay proud, because their range has been awards the coveted Good Housekeeping Institute seal pf approval and has also been praised by testers from Mumsnet.

A representative of Lild, Josie Stone, said: “We’ve been delighted to received such rave reviews for our Lupilu range.

“The early years are the most important time for babies and new parents but also the most expensive, so it’s essential that parents don’t feel that they have to choose between excellent quality and an affordable price.”

Even though Lidl’s prices sound like a bargain, it is still worth remembering that some of these products may be available for less elsewhere. To make sure that you’re getting the best deal, it’s always worth checking prices online before heading out to the shops.

Only last week Tesco launched a sale on baby wipes, with some of the items on sale better than half price. It included popular baby brands such as Pampers, Huggies and Johnsons. Because the competition between nappy manufacturers is quite fierce, similar offers likes the ones from Tesco and Aldi are often available.

Parents you like to be savvy when it comes to the cash can use the appropriately named nappy comparison website ‘Bumdeal.co.uk’ to compare and find the latest deals and bargains depending on the brand and the nappy size.

The consumer information provider ‘Which?’ also advises mums and dads to buy the largest packs to reduce costs. But be wary of buying nappies in bulk as your baby might outgrow them quickly!
