6 things to look out for when buying your newborn's nappies

Section: Baby

When you have a newborn baby, you want to do everything to give them the best start in life and there are so many tips, advice, and methods that it can be overwhelming!

One thing you can cross off your list is choosing which newborn nappy to use. ASDA Little Angels have your baby’s interests at the heart of what they do and have designed their nappies to ensure baby is comfortable, safe, dry and happy.

Their dedicated newborn nappy range is complete with all the features and benefits you’d expect to ensure your precious arrival is as happy as can be.

1) Soft material

Newborn skin is super sensitive so you want a nappy that is soft against baby’s delicate skin.

ASDA Little Angels are made with feather-soft materials and are the first supermarket own-label nappy brand to be accredited by the Skin Health Alliance, so you know your little one is in safe hands.

2) Time-to-change wetness indicator

Newborns and new parents need their sleep, so you will want to avoid disturbing a sleeping baby at all costs.

A wetness indicator that changes from yellow to blue when wet allows you to check if the baby needs changing without removing their nappy, meaning you can leave them to sleep soundly.

3) Affordable

Nappies will need changing often when your baby is first born, so you’ll want a range that won’t break the bank.

ASDA Little Angels nappies start at only 89p per pack and affordable jumbo packs allow you to stock up for less.

4) Umbilical protection

For the first couple of weeks, your baby has added sensitivity around the umbilical cord.

Little Angels newborn nappies have a special contoured design to prevent umbilical irritation, ensuring they’re kind to baby’s tummy.

5) Elastic waist 

Newborns lie on their back for a lot of the time so runny poop can often creep up their back. All Little Angels nappies have super-stretchy waist elastic to help prevent a lot of mess!

6) Size-up guide

The main cause of dreaded leaks is being in the wrong size nappy, so you’ll want to be sure when it’s time to move to the next size so baby always gets the best protection.

ASDA Little Angels have a handy guide to help you identify when it’s time to go up a size – simply check that the sticky tabs still fasten in the coloured area and if they don’t then it’s time to size-up. Easy!

It's good to be prepared and that’s why it’s smart to buy in nappies before your little angel is born.

But because it’s impossible to know what size nappy your baby will need, ASDA is happy to refund or exchange any unopened bag of Little Angels newborn nappies. So that’s one less thing to worry about!

From nappies and wipes to moisturisers and bath time fun, ASDA Little Angels have everything your little one needs from bump to birth and beyond!
