Changing Times

As Australia’s leading nappy brand, Huggies® has a longstanding history of serving the needs of Aussie parents. Based on extensive consumer research and feedback directly from parents, the brand understands times have changed and parenting is now more varied, costly and challenging than ever.

As a business we’ve focused on understanding the range of factors contributing to the current pressures faced by parents, so we can adapt to meet the needs of our consumers.

We’re excited to hear what parents across Australia will have to say about our reinvigorated range.”
