    used pampers exclusively with ds#1 ... usually bought at watsons (silly and expensive, i know!!) we also stocked up while in Canada. Pampers there (US/CDN) fit FAR better (on my kids)

    now with twins at home and in nappies, we buy SEALER (think it's a taiwanese brand). (sorry, pampers just tooo expensive when you're doing it x2!!) Really pleased. no rashes, no leaks. You can get tehm at mannings. on the LESS expensive side ($60-$80 / pk)

    other than that we buy at a local pharmacy/dispensery. in the NT we have a big chain called Koon Sang Dispensery and another called BIRDS NEST ... i'm sure they must have similar on the island. ask a neighbor where the best/closest one is.

    Also, buy your wipes at the dispenseries too. We get the pampers senstive wipes for HK$16/pk and Johnson's for HK$18/pk. Watons & Mannings are well over HK$22. we also buy over 10 at a time. just make sure to check the expiry on the bottom. did get one that was 2yrs expired and DRY DRY DRY ... but just took it back, showed them and they gave me a new one.

    Sleuth is right about the difference in quality. I could not find the same pampers in Philippines. Bought the most expensive pampers thinking it would exceed or at least match the ones in HK, you would not believe how harsh the material was.

    And RebeccaMB, thanks for the tips about wipes!

    Wow what a great thread. The price of Pampers Sensitive Wipes at Wellcome is 33 HKD!! Please can someone post the name of a HK Island dispensary/pharmacy that would be cheaper? Thanks a zillion

    Snagito,

    There's a pharmacy down the road from us in Wah Fu. I go to the one on the 1/F near the Kumon Center. If you drive to Wah Fu you can park in the shopping complex under McDonalds.

    Wah Fu is a housing estate in Pok Fu Lam. Where abouts are you? Maybe we can recommend a pharmacy in yr neighborhood.

    There's a new pharmacy on Caine Rd across from Starbucks. Also a couple in Wanchai on Hennessy Rd.
