    Diapers-Best place to buy

    Hi,
    Just wondering if anyone can tell me where the cheapest place is to buy diapers (either pampers or huggies)?

    Also - Cannot find LARGE containers of vaseline to buy for baby - only small ones at B2B, Watsons etc.
    Any recommendations?

    The Chinese pharmacies usually have the best prices on diapers. They only take cash, so you're getting an extra 5% off for a cash sale.

    Have found the generic brands of Petroleum Jelly at Bonjour Cosmetics. They sometimes have large tubs, and the price is much cheaper than Watsons.

    Here's a list of locations

    I found buying through ParkNShop online cheaper than physically buying at ParkNShops.

    we either buy at mannings or local pharmacies. Supermarkets are most expensive.

    diapers

    Thanks to everyone for your input!
    Wondering if you can tell me though where I can find a local Chinese pharmacy? The one's I have been into do not seem to sell diapers.
    Hong Kong Island locations would be most helpful.
    Thank you!

    Keep in mind that the brand name doesn't mean the same diaper as back home. We use the store brand at Toys-R-Us. We tried Pampers here and they weren't the same as in the USA. As a matter of fact, Gateway has (had?) a big sign stating that there is a difference between the US and local Pampers.

    In my opinion the best place to buy nappies (diapers) is Europe.

    For some reason the huggies nappies in Europe are far superior to the ones produced in Asia. They sell the European ones sometimes in B2B but they are more expensive. I usually fill a suitcase full of nappies from Europe when we visit, which fortunetly is every few months.
