We want disposable nappies to be comfortable for our babies and gentle on their skin, but most importantly we want them to be absorbent and to avoid leakages. Our nappies buying guide will help you work out what to look for, and how we test explains our testing rigour.

  • Did you know CHOICE tests more than just nappies? Check out our top 50 reviews

Need to know: Only products of each type (newborn, infant or crawler) can be directly compared with one another, so use our filter tool to sort by type.

Our test results will tell you which nappies:

  • quickly absorb liquid
  • leaked during our test
  • stay damp at the surface
  • have a strong velcro fastening to keep them secure.

Our interactive tool helps you sort by price per nappy, and our Recommended list will quickly tell you which brands came out on top.
