Pampers nappy range contains several different types of nappies after their newborn type to choose from. Generally the most expensive is 'Active fit' the cheapest being 'Simply dry' and these 'Baby dry' are inbetween but do offer a more comprehensive size range than the other 2 types. I have tried all 3, in fact I've tried most of Pampers, Huggies and Sainsbury's own nappies as many new parents do until they find one they like the most!
Pampers Baby Dry nappies advertise the slogan '12 hours of golden sleep' due to an extra layer that locks wetness away. To prevent nappy rash or babies waking during the night. As a new parent I thought all babies cried when their nappy needed changing? Apparently not as my daughter I think would not whimper if we didn't change her all day! before you call social services of course we would never do this, we were just surprised as new parents this was never the reason for her crying despite all the information you get saying if baby is crying check if they are thirsty, hungry, wet etc...are we just lucky? The reason I say this is if you do find your baby cries when their nappy is dirty these might be a good buy for you but as we don't have this issue there was no problem for these nappies to solve.
What they have solved along with the 'Simply dry' nappies is a case of nappy rash that 'Active fit' nappies started to give my daughter after they reduced the amount of padding in them (supposedly to make them easier for baby to move about in).
The nappies themselves are plain white with a printed colourful band across the top of the front and back of the nappy, it's looks like Dora the explorer but I can't be sure. They are very soft to the touch unlike the Simply dry nappies which are a little harsher. Stretchy in all the normal places, round the thighs and side sticky tabs. The absorbency is very good, hence cleared up said nappy rash. Also my daughter has never leaked out of these nappies but it is very rare for her to do this now since on solid food.
Sizes range available:
Size 2 for 3-6kg
Size 3 for 4-9kg
Size 4 for 7-18kg
Size 4+ for 9-20kg
Size 5 for 11-25kg
Size 6 for 16+kg
I always keep a pack of the next size up from what my daughter is currently in so when she is nearly out of a pack I try the next size just incase these fit better before buying her current size again.
I don't know why they do a size 4+ as I have mentioned in a previous review, my husband brought a size 4+ by mistake after I asked him to buy size 4, he didn't realise they do 2 size 4's. I made a similar mistake with these Baby dry nappies as the size 4 is called Maxi which I assumed they meant 4+, wrong they call size 4--Maxi and size 4+ is called simply 4+ maxi. I don't know why but it seems all nappy brands do this silly size 4+ instead of doing size 5,6,7 ?
Prices vary widely depending on where you purchase and what offers are on. Asda seems to have these on offer quite a bit at 2 boxes of 96 for approx £18 but they do come in smaller carry packs of 30 if this is to many but the price you pay per nappy goes from about 10p to 16p.
