I only know of Nappyland - although have heard that ALDI nappies are quite good, nearly as good as Huggies but half the price. Also place like Baby Mode in Sunshine/Footscray have discounted nappies

Hi I have 2 in nappies as well and i am always on the quest for cheaper nappies. i have looked into quite a few of the discount places and they often dont seem all that much cheaper.
I have tried the ALDI nappies( i buy everything but nappies from ALDI so thought i would try so i didnt have to go elsewhere) They are not bad but i find that they release the little jelly crystals a bit when they are wet. Huggies and snugglers are still superior. But still they are not bad, better than the likes of babylove.
I find that if i look out for the specials and go wherever they are on sale it works out the same if not beter than the warehouse places. I always take my calculator so i can work out how much i am paying per nappy to see what pack is the best deal. It can get confusing to work out which ones are better because of all the different pack sizes, this is the only way to work out the cost comparisons.
Not a whole lot of help for what you asked lol but i hope i helped a little.

Hi Guys

I am new to this- stumbled across the EB site only a little while ago. I am due in the 1st week of  June.
Just wondering if the nappies you are talking about are disposies or cloth. It would be great to find somewhere who discount for bulk rather than having to buy them from the supermarket all the time.

In Dandenong there is a litle shop called the Baby and Nappy shop.

It's a couple of shops in from the corner of Dandenong/Frankston Rd and the Princes Hwy. Right next to Tint a car.

I buy Bulk packs in there of the "My Bear" nappies also sold by nappyland but much cheaper.

Newborn- $24 for 100.
Medium- $28 for 100.
Large- $34 for 100.

I'm not sure about prices for the larger sizes as my girls are small I've never bought above the Large size.

I also buy bulk packs of wipes 2 boxes for $7.00 from there.

I think the "My bear" nappies are great. They are MUCH better than Snugglers in my opinion that did nothing but leak for me and in a box of 108 I had about 12 I couldn't use they were faulty. Have yet to find a faulty "My Bear".

Good luck, you may not be near Dandenong but my advice is to find the little shops. This shop is run by lovely asian people and it's literally the size of my bathroom, but their prices are fantastic. They also do cheaper Huggies and snugglers, pull ups, little swimmers and seconds nappies.

Nappyland, Beach St Frankston, has the best deals.
Giggles nappies are cheap and great. DS is in XL up to 18kgs, 72 Nappies $15, and I have bought Newborns recently (to start stocking up), 112 Nappies for $15.
They also have ALL the other brands for cheap prices and other stuff too, wipes, baby stuff, Toilet paper, etc...
Good Luck

If you are after Babylove, they have a factory outlet on Lewis Road, Wantirna South.  I am told that they are cheap there.  I personally use ALDI and Snugglers, I find them pretty good.
