Any hints about whether it is best to bring disposable nappies to Bali or buy when required? If the price is OK in Bali, what brands and where to buy and how much would be appreciated.

I have a dim memory of someone posting a similar query long ago and the advice was to bring your own. But that may have been in the days before Carrefour and you can Google them re what they carry--but the time spent getting there (in between Sanur and Kuta) may be more trouble than it's worth and if imported, they won't be cheap.
The disposable nappies that you can buy in Hardys, Bintang or Carrefour that are "local" appear to be fine to me. They are cheap, and are in a protective sealed bag. I think they would be ok, you don't need to get imported ones or bring your own.
Carrefour is great for pretty much anything you need. They have all personal stuff and medical and cosmetics. They also do great food as only the french can. We usually spend the morning there, then buy lunch before we head back to the hotel. Pizza by the slice, chicken, salad, pies and great patisserie cakes.
I'm heading over next month and have been advised to take a qty of good Huggies nappies, apparently mama poko brand are the best there but Huggies are really expensive.
Can I ask you a question regarding your Apec card, I have a card too, do I have to pay the $25 fee for myself & bubs or just bub? Cheers
Your Apec card has a passport number on it so it only covers you. If your baby has her own passport it will be us$25 for her. If somehow bubs is on your passport then I believe she would get in free. Now there is no such thing as renewing an Apec card. You need to reapply. The fees are $200 plus $330 for your state chamber of Commerce or equivalent to authenticate your application; both non refundable. So $530 gets you free entry for 3 years. If you travelled overseas every 2 months for 3 years To Indo.and paid it would be $450. So is it worth having one?... don't think so. But you are able to do business and stay 60 days.
The APEC card is also good for expedited entry/exit at immigration (separate counters, just like diplomatic or airline staff) in covered areas. Well worth in in places like Hong Kong, where lineups--especially inbound--can seem endless....
Thanks for info :-) I've had it for a few years and travelling on NZ card which seems quite a bit cheaper than oz!! It's fantastic, ESP for getting through airports quickly.
