ASDA's Little Angels Nappies 

It’s crucial parents trust their nappy to keep their baby dry and to provide parents with the very best option, Asda Little Angels has redesigned and improved its Newborn, and Comfort and Protect nappy ranges, helping parents navigate ‘nappyland’ and keep babies happy in their nappies.

The newly designed nappies now feature SmartFloabsorbency, where multiple channels in the nappy absorb wetness, leading to a slimmer, more comfortable nappy. Available in stores and online now, the new design:

  • Distributes wetness more evenly for better comfort – no more sagging nappies!
  • Absorbs moisture quicker, for less leaks
  • Is slimmer in size, so little ones can keep on moving and wriggling in a less bulky nappy
  • Has an improved fit around the waist to keep everything inside

Not only are the nappies improved for little ones and their parents, there’s environmental benefits too – with slimmer nappies, plastic levels have been reduced by 40 tonnes, meaning there’s 148 fewer trucks on the road distributing the nappies.

The Doidy Cup and Bowl 


The Doidy Cup, with its small handles, has been scientifically designed with a unique slant that allows a young child to see the level of the liquid in the cup as they tilt to drink.  The Doidy Cup, which has been endorsed by Health Professionals including Doctors, Dentists, Midwives and Health Visitors for almost 70 years, helps to teach an infant to drink from the rim of an open cup rather than from a spout or teated bottle, which carries many benefits.  Indeed, health professionals promote the use of the Doidy Cup to help prevent premature tooth decay, poor feeding techniques and delayed speech development.  This unique weaning cup encourages good oral movements and helps to develop chewing skills through encouraging use of the jaw, tongue and mouth muscles. 

AVAILABILITY: in ASDA, Dunelm, John Lewis, JoJoMamanBebe, Ocado, Sainsbury’s, all good independent baby retailers and pharmacies as well as online from Amazon and the Doidy Cup website RRP from: £3.80
