Supermarket chain Aldi has issued a statement over its award-winning nappies after complaints from parents.
Mums and dads have said they think the nappy design has been changed – with some saying the brand is no longer as absorbant as it once was.
But the claims of a change for the worse have been denied by the budget chain, reports Mirror Online.
One mum took to social media to report: “I use both 4 and 4+ for my twins but opened a packet of 4+ that I bought last week and they are different from what they normally are.
“The feeling is different (softer), the green is paler and most importantly they are smaller and less absorbent (as I found out this morning as my daughter was wet through and this has never happened) than they usually are.
“There also seems to be less stretch in the fasteners.
“You can also see in the second picture that if I match up the line of the green waistband at the back, the waistband is longer but the actual absorbent ‘nappy bit’ is significantly smaller.”
A second mother added: “I’ve used Aldi nappies on my daughter since birth never had any problem until about 1 month ago she was soaking through.”
An Aldi spokesman said: “As the UK’s largest own-label nappy brand, our customers buy over a billion award-winning Mamia nappies each year.
“We made some improvements to our nappies last year, including improving absorbency and ensuring a more even distribution of fluid to give a better fit and reduce sagging.
“We’re always grateful for customer feedback, which helps with future product development.”
