Huggies Pull Ups Night Time
Advantages: See her through the night
Sorry for so much talk of wee in this review ... this is a review of Huggies Pull Ups Night Time. Our daughter is 22 months old now and has been wearing pull up style nappies for ages, purely because she won't lie down for nappy changes so it is easier to use the pants style nappies and we have had less leakage with these as well. As a small baby we had far too many accidents with leaky Huggies so were not a fan of the brand but the pull up style seem to suit our active daughter now she is a bit older.
History of our usage to date
I started with Sainsbury's own pull ups as they seem to do the smallest style but after a few months they were leaky so we moved on to Pampers pull ups. I had more recently tried the Huggies pull ups with a degree of success alongside some potty training and so when I saw the night time versions I thought we would give them a try.
To date, we are averaging 2-3 potty wees a day. A complete fail on number twos so far but another progress is that my daughter is holding her wees in a bit in the night and has a big wee first thing in the morning when we get her up. That's not to say her nappy is in any way dry but she is holding a lot in, seemingly in anticipation of the potty visit.
A slight aside from the nappies I'm reviewing here: our potty is a mini toilet (the Smart Rewards one) that I have already reviewed. It's been a big help in getting her to wee on a potty but we have traditional style potties at both grandparents' houses and have had varying success with these.
Price and a lucky find
Back to the Huggies night time. I must admit that I bought all the stock Asda had as the largest size 6 were reduced to £1.54 which is a huge saving, although you only get ten in a packet. I can only assume they were changing the packaging or nearing some sort of sell by date as they are usually closer to £6 a pack (with deals if you buy two packs). You can recognise the night time packs as they are a purple plastic pack unlike the day ones which are pink (for girls). They have different colours for boys and girls too, presumably as the nappies are made up differently or at least have different pictures on them.
The nappies themselves are bright pink featuring Disney princesses on them and they have a few designs in each pack. My daughter loves looking at the pictures on them and oohs over them when we use them. She particularly loves the one with an owl on the back mainly because she does a mean impression of an owl noise!
The other features are a sort of light Velcro on the sides which enables easy undoing of the nappy (particularly if there is a poo inside!) but you can pull them off too. Another feature is that there is a pattern on the front of the pull up that fades and disappears when the nappy has urine inside. The nappy also puffs up so it's not that useful a feature but it makes them a little different from the other pull up nappies out there.
The idea is that they can pull up their nappies themselves when potty training. Our daughter can do the front but forgets it also needs hoicking up at the back too! Perhaps we are starting a little early with the pull ups but they are working for us so far and we are not pressuring our daughter, just celebrating her successes with the potty (and a sticker chart!).
To be honest, I have used the day time nappies and the night time nappies from the Huggies pull up range and I just can't tell you the difference between the nappies other than slightly different decorations on the nappies. The performance is consistent and they cope with the same amount of wees as content, going puffy when full. I do think at the normal price these nappies are really expensive and even two packs for £10 which is the normal offer on a size 6 is only equating to twenty nappies. The night time ones generally stay on 12 hours and so really do have to be good to cope with that amount of time.
We are still buying Pampers pull ups as well as the Huggies ones; I tend to work out the best price before stocking up. I definitely fell on a bargain with these and managed to buy three packs at the very low price. I would buy them again though but only if they are a reasonable price.
Summary: Good transisional nappy
