Huggies Pull Ups Night Time
Advantages: Great fun design and supper absorbent
Disadvantages: Price and lack of information on the pack
As I said I have a little girl she is 2 years old and has learnt the art of whipping off her nappy but has yet to
Learn the art of using a potty. Because of this I have now started to use pull ups instead of nappies and so far she has no interest in taking these off. Now I have to be honest I tend to buy pamper pull ups one because the have doras face on and two because of the cost. You will learn more about this later in my review.
Huggies pull ups come in 4 forms day time pull ups which also come in a pack for boys or a pack for girls and also night time pull ups which again come in a choice for boys and girls. Now first of all I think that the fact they do separate designs for boys and girls is great it shows that Huggies as a company has really but thought into the age group these will be used for and has taken into consideration that babies/children hit a certain age and all of a sudden they have their own mind. Can't that be a great stage? This review is for the Huggies night time pull up for girls.
Pampers pull ups on the shelf:
Now when you walk down the nappy aisle no one can say that Huggies pull ups don't jump out off the shelf at you. They come in bright standard nappy packaging, either blue pink or purple. The night time girls pull ups are a lovely shade of purple which then ties in with the fact that they are princess themed. On the front of the pack you have the Huggies pull up logo along with a little girl wearing the pull ups sat on a potty. This straight away shows you the design of the pull ups but I do have to say this picture does not do them justice. There is also a princess design along with different symbols. One shows the pull up size which you have a choice of 4,5 or 6 they do not do the plus sizes that you get from pampers (plus sizes are the sizes inbetween 2 whole sizes for example size 5+) there is also a symbols showing how many pull ups you get which can vary from 14 to 11 depending on size now this is not many pull ups. It also shows that they have extra absorbency and the fact that they are pull ups. There is also a picture showing you that there is a picture on the front of the pull up that will disappear when it needs to be changed
Huggies do not have a lot to say about this product apart from they are 'night time pull ups' and 'helps make potty training fun and easy' there's no indication of how long these are meant to last or even how they work which I personally think is lazy and not at all helpful. Yes you know you as buying pull ups but you have no idea what to expect. What little information has been given about this product is done so in pictures so as you can imagine there's only so much a picture can tell you. With all this in mind it seems as if this product has almost been aimed at the child. But I have to say I have never sen try child off down the nappies aisle on her own to pick up the supplies she may need. Yes it does make it look fun to a child but as a parent when buying products such as nappies and pull ups I need a bit more than fun.
The pull up it's self:
When removing these pull ups from the pack the first thing you notice is pink! Yes the whole pull up is a lovely shade of candy pink. There is a Disney princess on the front with a purple heart design inside a white heart ( this is the picture indicator) on the back is a picture to match the princess on the from. Each pull has 1 of 2 designs there is sleeping beauty which has a owl on the back with moons and stars and a heart indicator or there is Cinderella which has a shoe indicator with stars and butterflies on the back. As I said earlier on in the review the picture on the front does not do these pull ups justice they almost look too pretty to effectively be used as a nappy. My little one has learnt to tell me when the picture disappears and runs to the cupboard to choose which design she wants to use next. This defiantly adds a little stress free factors to nappy changes. When it comes to the fit I have a little bit of a problem with these as in other brands my little girl is a 5+ which is not an option with these. A 5 is a little snug a take a bit more of a pull to get them on but a 6 leaves gaps which in turn leaks. If you are using these for the first time and your little one is a plus size I would say go for the size down instead of the size up. Being snug does not cause my little one any restriction or discomfort at all and I have not had a single leaking accident. there are tabs at each side of the pull up to make taking it off easy but unlike other brands these have been designed to be resealed which I have not seen on any other pull up they almost have a Velcro design to them. This is a great idea because if your child does learn how to take them off they don't need to go straight in the bin. I also find this handy when taking a dry one off. Y little girl when putting her in the bath as it can be reused after. I tend to buy both types of these pull ups obviously for day and night use as a presume the night time ones have better holding ability. I have to presume this as its not states anywhere but there must be a reason why they have the 2 different types. A pull up I put on my little girl before I go to bed at about 11 will not have leaked at 7 the next morning no matter how much she drinks and even with the picture has disappeared. This is impressive and I like that I don't have to worry about accidents when I go to sleep at night and my little girl can wake up dry and happy in the morning. When taking the pull up off no matter how full the lining is never wet to touch so I am co didn't that they are not causing my little girl any discomfort in the night. I have also had no problems with these causing any sores.
Now comes price and availability this is where it really gets bad:
These can be bought in all supermarkets and online so they are easy to come across. But this is where t all goes wrong the price. The price of ONE pack of Huggies pull ups at normal price is about £5.48 yea £5.48 for 12 pull ups that's just under 46p a pack. To be completely honest this is sickening and I don't know anyone that could happily go into a store a buy these week in week out at this price a night time pack lasts about 6 days and I need just over 2 packs of day time pull ups to sat those 6 days so at full price that's £21.92 personally yes there are lovely but at they price they are not at all justify able. Especially when you can buy 2 boxes of pampers pull ups for £20 and them last 2 weeks. But it does get a little bit better. Obviously I do at time purchase these but defiantly not at this price. In tesco I find every couple of months they are half price at about £2.54 and when they are this price I do stock up and have cupboards full.
Would in recommend these?
They are a great design pull up and defiantly appeal to the child that will be wearing them. At half price they are a great buy but at half price you can't forget that they are just a glorified nappy and an overpriced one at that. So at full price no do. Of go out and buy these.
Because of their not on offer price and the lack of information on the pack about this product I have to give Huggies pull up 3 starts
Summary: Princess pull ups for your little princess but not to be purchased at princess prices
