Advantages: Helps a child learn to wear pants. Nice designs.
Disadvantages: Pricey if not on offer.
I am a person that always has an eye for a bargain and that continues with these Huggies pull ups. Last year Boots had a good offer on these and I also had been sent a money off coupon so i done an order online which worked out at about £1.30 a pack. Last month I finishing using my stock pile of these and am now buying them. Currently Asda have a baby and toddler event happening so a pack costs £2.75 which is also a good price. They are £5.99 in my local Coop which I find too expensive for a pack of 14 pull ups but recently I had completely run out and had no choice but to buy them at that price or get normal nappies but seeing as my daughter had been in them so much I didn't really want to convert her back to normal nappies.
I felt my daughter was ready for pull ups and to start the process of potty training as she would tell me as soon as her nappy was dirty or just whip the nappy off and put her peppa pig knickers on instead. I don't feel safe letting her wear them constantly so we make a deal and put pull ups on which are pretty pink with Disney characters on them.
These are available in sizes small 4 containing 16 pull ups, medium 5 containing 14 and large 6 with 12 in. I tend to use size 5 with 14 per pack.
These are Disney princess designed ones. There seem to be 2 different designs per pack and currently they have snow white on or a princess with a mouse. Something I only noticed recently which I find very useful is that at the front under the main picture there is a white area with an outline of either an apple or star on it, now when the pull up becomes wet the image fades away allowing you to see easily if it is wet rather then fondle with nappy feeling if it's wet. The fact they have Disney pictures on them is also a way to get children to want to wear them and enjoy wearing them.
Each pull up feels soft and is easy for toddlers to put on and take off again. The sides can be ripped off for easier removal with a kind of velcro style fastener on it so can be done back up again. My daughter tends to take them completely off when goes to sit on the potty rather then sit with them around her ankles but the potty is still work in progress as she has only used it once so far but two near misses lol.
I use these at night time also because she stays dry at night, these are quite thin but do hold quite a bit of soiling if you find yourself unable to change them or reach a toilet, but you can buy ones just for night times which I expect are thicker to hold more.
On the whole I like these as does my daughter, it also gives them another part of their independence being able to use these themselves.
I'd advice you to keep an eye out for promotions when buying these as the price is off putting but I do find them good quality and better then other make pull ups.
Summary: Comfy for child and helps them learn to wear pants whilst they are in potty learning stage.
