My little girl hasn't long turned two and as of yet she is reluctant to use the potty. I am not going to force her I have simply put it away and we'll try again in a few months. Increasingly changing her nappy has become a nightmare, she won't lie down to have her bum done and it was getting difficult to pin down a wriggly toddler. I seen these in Asda for £10 a box when the baby event was on. My little girl is tall and very slim she is still in a size 4 so we get 75 in a box. They also do a size 4+ a size 5 and a size 6. You do get less of these in a box than other Pampers nappies so they do work out more expensive. The pants are designed to go on like a pant but to be as absorbent as a nappy. The pants claim to lock away wetness and keep your child dry for up to 12 hours. When I opened the box I was a little disappointed with the design of Dora the Explore, my daughter doesn't like Dora and I would have preferred a design more like the Baby Dry nappies which just have animals on them. They are brightly coloured and the back of the pant has a stripy design. At the back of the nappy there is also a little blue tab which when pulled extends so that you can roll up the nappy to dispose of it as they don't have tabs like normal nappies. The first time I used these it wasn't really clear which way they needed to go on, we figured it out eventually. The nappies have stretchy sides so they pull on easily. Once the pant was in place it looked comfortable. They were very slim looking and not too bulky, when my daughter was running around as toddlers do the pant seemed to be flexible and the sides stretched as she moved. I was a bit concerned about night time use as I wasn't sure these nappies would absorb as well as normal nappies. The first night we used these pants I was pleasantly surprised at how effective they were. They were just as absorbent as any other nappy. The pants are also easy to remove as you can simply tear the sides and remove as a normal nappy if you need to. For us these nappies are really practical at the moment, my daughter is happy to step into the pants and I don't have to physically restrain her to change her bum. Overall they are a good design and absorb well. My daughter hasn't suffered any irritation or nappy rash after using these pants. I would recommend these for toddlers on the go, they are very easy to use.
I have a 2 year old little girl and have Been using pamers pull ups for the last 6 months.nthis is due to my 2 year old now whipping of normal nappies but at the same time not being willing to use a potty. I have been using pampers throughout the stages of my little girls progression so at some point have tried and tested their full rang so their easy up pant was the next step for me. Packaging: The packaging itself is no different to any other nappy packaging and like all other brands they have been designed to be able to carry a protesting child under 1 arm and the box or pack of nappies in the other, whether this be the side handles in the box or the plastic carry handle on the top of the pack. The design itself of the packaging now clearly shows that your child will have DORA THE EXPLORA on their pull up which has been a massive selling point with my 2 year old. Pampers have used a bold red colour scheme for this particular product and I have noticed that it does stand out on the shop shelves compared to the paler products available. The nappy itself: Well I must start by saying that yes Dora face is on every single pull up which my 2 year old has to check every time it come to changing her and god help me if I haven't got the Dora ones so with me their is no option of just buying what's on offer because my little girl will not wear them. The fit of these pull ups is perfect my little girl is tall with no meat on the and the elasticated leg holes fit perfectly snug avoiding any leakes. On the back of the pull up you also have a sticky tab which allows you to roll the nappy up and stick it in place once use so if you do have a child that escapes you don't have a open dirty nappy lying around the floor. On each side of the easy up pants you have easy to release tabs which allow the pants to be taken off like a nappy which is handy when changing a smelly child. I have found that these easy up last forever!! I have never had a single accident with these and can confidently put my little one to bed at night knowing that she will wake up dry in the morning even if she has a drink in the night. Since using these my little one has also never experienced nappy rash and everytime I have take one of these pull ups off the surface is always completely dry no matter have heavy the pull up is. So I feel. Confident that she is not at any discomfort. Price and availability of pampers easy up pants: This product come in 3 sizes these include the box displayed, and economy pack and a small handy pack. So depending on which size you are buying depends on the price. But from my local tescos you can get a small handy pack for around £5 an economy pack for around £10 and a box for around £13 but there is also always offers on. These can be bought in any supermarket or stores such as, boots, super drug and wilkinsons also well as online. I have never experienced a problem with these easy up pants so I am giving them a 5 star rating
My little girl did really well at potty training. She mastered it at about two and a half and during the day she was brilliant. When it came to nighttime though, at that point, she wasn't quite ready to go through the night without a nappy as every morning she was still really quite wet. I didn't want to put a regular nappy on her though as I thought that would confuse her and make her think she wasn't quite potty trained so we bought her these pampers easy up nappies for night time. What I like about them is that they are just like knickers but with a bit of padding, ok, they look quite like a nappy but I like the fact that you just pull them up and down like you would a regular pair of pants. We call them night time nik nik's so my little girl feels as if she is a big girl wearing knickers and not a nappy. Some we had tried in the past came apart at the sides, sort of like a regular nappy would but these don't and I like that. BY the looks of them you can pull them apart at the side but then they wouldn't do up again like some nappies do. They have pictures of Dora the explorer on them at the moment and quite colourful, they are a bit bulky but a bit more slim line than a heavy nappy. The pants start at size 5 which is for sizes 24-40lbs. They are probably a tiny bit big for my little girl as she has quite a small waist but they pull up quite high and fit well like that. They are quite absorbent which is good. Apparently, according to the packaging they have an extra dry layer, super stretchy sides and anti-leak leg cuffs which all help to offer up to 12 hours of dryness. For the first couple of weeks of wearing them my little girl would still wee in them but they never leaked or made a mess in her pyjamas or bed. Now she has got used to them she is almost dry every night and now she is able to she actually goes to the loo on the toilet by herself by being able to pull these pants up and down. I definitely think they have given her the confidence she needs to go through the night without weeing. I think it's almost time to get rid of them now but they have been great. It's a good job though as they're quite expensive, a pack of 20 costs about £6 but hopefully you won't need them for long just like us.
I foster a 4yr old boy who has medical problems, he will wee on the potty if prompted but will go into a corner for a poo. I find these are not as good as Huggies pullups because the sides are not resealable which mean I have to take his shoes and trousers off to change him, whereas Huggies can be undone to put on then refastened
Pampers is a baby/toddler brand offering nappies, pull ups and wipes in various types to suit the need of parents and their budgets. *Product* Pampers Easy Up pants are the next stage up from normal nappies. These are designed to give children a bit more independance and unless the child has done a poo, these can be removed by sliding off like normal pants. Perfect for potty training stages. The Easy Up Pants come with an extra dry area to prevent leaks. The sides are stretchy to allow your child to freely move and as well as being pulled down, you can also tear the sides with ease and remove like a normal nappy. The nappies themselves have a white edging and a distinct purple and green theme. They also have Bob the Building various images on the front. The back also has an image and a little sticky tab for holding the nappy together once removed and ready to be disposed of. *Packaging* Easy Up nappies come in easily recognisable red plastic wrappers bearing the Pampers logo and Easy Up logo. The wrappers will also tell you the size and quantity and how to contact Pampers. If you purchase a box, the box is cardboard and red with the same information. The packs inside will be in plain white with red writing. *Sizes* Easy Up pants are designed for toddlers and therefore come in the following sizes and estimated weights : Size 4 (18-33lbs/8-15kg) Size 5 (26-40lbs/12-18kg) Size 6 (35lbs+/16kg+) *Availability and Price* Easy Up Pants can be bought from supermarkets and the likes of Boots. They are not as widely stocked as the Pampers Baby Dry or Active Fit. Sizes of packs vary from store to store and you can purchase value boxes making each nappy cheaper. I will list the current Boots prices to give you an idea but look out for special offers. My most recent box was £7.98 in Tesco for 52nappies in size5. Size 4 Carry Pack Qty 24/Size 5 Qty 22/Size 6 Qty 20 = £5.99 Size 4 Economy Pack Qty 46/Size 5 Qty 42/Size 6 Qty 38 = £8.98 Size 4 Jumbo Pack Qty 60/Size 5 Qty 56/Size 6 Qty 52 = £11.99 Size 4 Mega Pack Qty 90/Size 5 Qty 84 = £18.99 *My Opinion* When my son was born, I started with the most popular nappy range..Pampers. I trust this range and so do other parents. After a while, money became tighter and I switched from Pampers Baby Dry to Boots own nappies. Usually on offer, they worked out the best price per average nappy. My son has become rather independant of late, turning 2 afterall you would expect this. Trying to get him to lie down and get his nappy changed is sometimes a struggle. I searched for something more suitable in the Boots range to no avail..they don't do toddler pants but Pampers do. Now on average each nappy costs 20p so I choose to alternate as we could not afford these for every change. Boo has a habit of pulling his trousers off in bed and then you go in to check on him and the nappy is sitting on the floor and a rather smiley Boo is being a typical wee boy. No matter how many times I try to tell him it will fall off..he just laughs at me. When the nappy managed to stay on, he would wake up wet after 12hrs sleep. This was no good. The one time I tried the Easy Up pants, he was perfectly dry the next morning, So, normal nappies during the day and Easy Up pants at night seemed the best option. My son likes these as they have Bob the Builder images and he is one of his favourite characters. They are attractive and bright and look comfy but are they? Well the stretchy sides are perfect and my son can jump about and wriggle and they move with him yet keep him dry. Once he has deposited a wee into it, it locks away and keeps his botty dry and rash free. A no2 deposit is kept hidden and safe until changing. My son seems to know he is going to do one as he tells us "a poo mum" about 30mins before..quite weird really but at least we are prepared as he has never been wrong yet! Looking inside the nappy (a clean one of course lol) you see the extra protection layer which is green and white and resembles a sort of sanitary pad so you can understand how this keeps the kids dry. The pants are easy to slide up and aslong as you make sure (if it is a boy that is) that his package is tucked in safe, your child will be leak free and comfy all night. I really don't mind paying extra for a box of these once a month just for night time as we go through so many of the other ones with him taking them off, it ends up costing more. He seems more content in these at night. I recommend these to any parent and would urge you to look for the value box offers in supermarkets and get them cheaper. Thanks for reading :)
I have generally found most aspects of parenting to be much easier second time around but potty training my youngest son has been very slow going so far and much more difficult than I remember from the first time around. I've never been a great fan of the general concept of pull-up nappies, believing there are a just a marketing ploy to charge parents a premium for a pull-up nappy and also because I prefer to go straight into pants as they are much easier for little ones to comprehend when they are wet and have had an 'accident.' This approach worked with my oldest son but is less practical with a second child as activities such as undertaking the school run for older siblings and family outings are much more problematic and stressful with a little one in pants who is still prone to lots of accidents! This has meant that I've been using both pants (at home) and standard nappies (whilst out and about and at night) but I felt that this was confusing for my two year old son who would, for example, become upset at times when he was doing a wee in his nappy and it seemed to be giving him conflicting messages by telling him that was 'okay.' So, in spite of my initial reservations I have begun to use Pampers Easy Up nappy pants as an alternative to traditional style nappies in the hope that a consistent approach to potty training will be more effective. These are essentially still nappies with an absorbent layer which will absorb urine in the same way as a standard nappy. The key difference is that they can be pulled up and down in a way which mimicks wearing pants, meaning that they can be put on while the child is standing up. It also makes using the potty much easier as my son doesn't have to lay down to have his nappy taken off to then go and use the potty. It also makes those inevitable 'false alarms' when we encourage him to try and use the potty much more easier to cope with as the pull ups can, quite simply, be pulled up and down in a matter of seconds. The Easy Up 'pants' haven't been a miracle product for instant potty training, by any means though. My two year old does not see these as 'pants' and, quite rightly really, insists on calling them nappies. The biggest advantage for him as an increasingly independent toddler is how easily these pull up and down. He has surprised me by how quickly he has mastered the art of putting these on himself and can do this without any adult intervention (aside from making sure that all his 'equipment' is safely tucked away inside!) He finds putting these on much easier than he does pants because pants are floppier and he tends to get the leg holes confused and ends up with them all twisted and upside down. These pull ups are quite stiff and have a picture of Bob the Builder on the front so he is able to hold them correctly and manouevre himself into them without difficulty. He is extremely proud about doing this 'all by himself'! I chose a Pampers branded pull-up, over other possible ranges, as I've always had positive experiences with the Pampers brand and found them to make reliable and comfortable nappies which represent great value for money. I was pleasantly surprised by the standard cost of the Easy Up range as they were not actually that much expensive than the Pampers Baby Dry range that I generally use. A small pack of 22 Easy Up nappies in my son's size (5) generally costs around £5.98 which is pretty similar to the cost of Pampers Baby Dry. Generally speaking, buying in bulk works out even cheaper and I have found this particular brand to be frequently on some sort of promotion, although not as generous as the offers on standard Pampers. Obviously, performance is the biggest consideration over and above price. A nappy, pull-up or otherwise, is not providing good value for money if it is not able to fulfil its basic function! These are very well-deserving of the Pampers brand and reputation and have managed to contain any accidents that my son has had whilst wearing them without any incident. I was a little apprehensive about using these at night-time as they do seem to be marketed primarily for daytime use and active toddlers. Fortunately, despite sleeping for a good 11-12 hour stretch and having a full and active bladder through the night, these Easy Ups have performed just as well as regular Pampers and we have not experienced any leakages or discomfort from an over full nappy. My son does have sensitive skin but we have had no problems with spotty botties since switching to Easy Ups which is another bonus and the ease of pulling on and off has meant that has been no incidents of the waistband or leg parts causing any soreness or rubbing either. Having begun to use these pull ups, I have no intention of returning to standard nappies with a little one of this age. Ideally, we'll be nappy free completely soon - until the arrival of number three when the whole process will start over again! I would certainly be willing to use these from an earlier age next time around not necessarily just as an aid to potty training as they would be ideal for active toddlers who are reluctant to lay down for nappy changes. Having discovered just how reliable and easy to use these Easy Ups actually are, I am now a convert to this type of nappy. I just hope we won't be needing to use them for much longer!
Pampers Easy ups are a bit more expensive than standard nappies but I think that these and their Huggies equivalent are worth the extra pennies. If you buy the bigger packs or wait till they are on special offer they don't work out too much more. I find them to be just as absorbent as nappies, in fact I think they leak less because they fit so much better. They always look more comfortable too. Much easier to get on the baby or toddler than ordinary nappies. If it is just wet you can pull them down and off like knickers but when it's dirty the sides rip open so it can be removed like a nappy. The differences between Pampers Easy ups and Huggies Nappy pants and are: 1) the sides of the Pampers are more like knickers - very neat but once you've ripped them they are ruined whereas the sides on Huggies can be opened and closed as many times as you like without losing stickiness this is great for the times you rip open what you were expecting to be a dirty nappy to realise the baby just had wind!! Huggies are a bit less neat due to this and quite tempting to littlle fingers that like to undo things 2)The pictures; Pampers currently have Bob the builder on them. Huggies currently have Winnie the Pooh on them. 3)Sizing; Pampers come up slightly smaller Pampers Size 4 = 8 - 15kg / 18 - 33lbs, Huggies Size 4 = 9-16kg / 19-34lbs, Pampers Size 5 = 12 - 18kg / 26 - 40lbs, Huggies Size 5 = 14 - 18kg / 32 - 40lbs, 4)Tesco often sells the large value packs of Pampers (about 60 pants)but the biggest pack of Huggies they sell is a pack of about 38 5)Pampers Easy ups have a little tab on the back so when you take them off you roll them up and the sticking tab holds it tight. However sometimes they don't have the tab - maybe when you buy the big value packs - which I think is a bit cheeky of Pampers or maybe its just the occasional batch don't have them by mistake?? I'm not sure. My biggest reason for buying easy ups over nappies is for my little ones comfort. I have used easy ups for both of my daughters from the minute they are big enough to wear Size 4's and only wish they'd make even smaller sizes of these sort of nappies. I even use them at night and think they're as good as Baby Dry nappies.
I bought these as they were on special offer at boots, half price. I wish I hadn't wasted my money!!! They are useless!!! My daughter is still in nappies at night although she has been dry in the day for a few years. I usually buy the pull up pants from Aldi which are very good indeed. The main issue I have with these pull ups is that they leak. Yes, pretty much every night I tried these I had to change all the sheets in the morning as there was considerable leakage. This was not due to the nappy being particularly full either, just not a very good fit. The other issue I have is they rip really easily. My daughter does get up and go to the toilet in the night if she wakes up and the nappies rip at the side when she pulls them back up. I shall definitely be returning to Aldi for their Pull ups.
**What are they?** They are a pull-on version of regular nappies. They are designed for your hyperactive toddler who does not want to lie down for their nappy change. They have what is described as a 'unique extra-dry layer'. **Are they any good?** Well, we purchased these for half price in Boots and would not have bought them otherwise as they are much more expensive than regular tabbed nappies. We thought it would be a nice treat for our 9 month old son. He has not started walking yet but always enjoys standing at any given moment so we did not think it too soon to use them. And we were right! The elasticated side strips are easy to tear - this makes removing it as easy as taking off a tabbed variety and no need to pull them down and spread the mess. There is also a sticky tape section at the back of the 'pants' to seal in the soiled part in a similar way to when you fold round the tabs to make a little parcel - this makes disposing of them convenient. As my son is still a little unsteady on his feet, I found the best way to put one on was to put it around his feet whilst still lying down then to get him to stand before pulling it up. As these are so stretchy and naturally shaped, we found we were able to go a size down without risking him leaking - this meant his crotch area was not so bulky underneath clothing, putting my mind at rest for his comfort levels. There is a Bob the Builder design on them at present - although this is probably more entertaining for the adults! We got through an entire carry pack without any leaks, even overnight and his skin was never sore. So, whatever that extra-dry blue strip was, it certainly worked. He seemed to find it quite entertaining having to stand for his nappy change which was lovely to see - I think he is a bit disappointed that we have returned to the normal tabbed option again. N.B. I would not recommend these for potty-training as it would be difficult for the child to tell when they are wet with such an effective absorbent core. Considering they are made very similar to the tabbed variety, I find it a real shame that they cost so much, I would certainly buy them more often if a quid less in price. £5.98 for 28 size 4 nappies is a rip-off - this is my only gripe about the product.
As we were potty training our daughter, I always said I was never going to buy pull up pants as I thought they defeated the object of training children if they still had some kind of nappy on. A few months later, they are a regular in my house, but not for the reason you may think. Our daughter is fully potty trained through the day, but there is no way she is ready to be nappy less at night time yet. When my last pack of nappies were coming to an end, I wondered what we would do, as I didn't really want to buy more if we were to encourage her to get up for a wee in the night if she needed to. Once a nappy has been removed then the sticky tabs lose their effect, so pull ups were our next option. After explaining to our daughter that these were her new "big girl" pants for night time, she looked suitably impressed. She knew she could pull them up and down herself if needed which is a great bonus I have realised when trying to gain bladder control in children. The pull up pants from Pampers has a Bob the Builder theme running through them. There is no distinguishing between girls and boys like Huggies do, but short of adding extra padding in the areas that distinguish the girls from the boys, the only difference is the masculine design. Our daughter thinks Bob the Builder is cool so we are ok there. Each pull up looks much like a swimming nappy, already formed to look like a pair of padded pants, but still flattened well like a nappy. Each leg hole is designed the same as a nappy, with ruffled edges to prevent leaks and spillages. I always knew that pull ups weren't meant to have as much usage as a nappy can have, as they are not designed for this purpose, but I have to say I was impressed at the amount of urine these pants can take. The first night we put our daughter in one, I fully expected to get up in the morning, and her bed would be wet. She didn't always have a full nappy in the morning, but rarely was it far from full. Thankfully the pull ups have always held the urine through the night and she has never woken uncomfortable from the experience. I notice that if the pants are vaguely wet in the morning then it will still be intact, but if it's too wet then it sags and falls off the bottom area very quickly. These aren't designed for heavy usage so something to keep in mind depending on your child's bladder. What I think we have gained from using pull up pants at night time is the fact that our daughter has more independence now and she can get up when she's in bed for a wee if she needs one (and usually does). We are hoping this will lead to her having dry pull ups in the morning before long and then we can gradually phase them out. I have been impressed with the product as a whole and am glad I thought about using them again before totally dismissing them. I'm still not sure I would use them for day to day potty training but I can see the benefits, especially if you're travelling about a lot. Generally these pull ups come in a packet of 22 for £5.98. Even worse value for money than a normal packet of nappies, but at one a night these packets will last three weeks so still a saving against nappies.
I have to admit, I usually just buy supermarket own brand nappies and pull ups, but yesterday in Tesco these were BOGOF, which worked out cheaper so into the trolley they went. I have a 3 year old who is toilet trained but still wears pull ups at night for now and usually they are only slightly damp in the morning. I also have a 2 year old who wears his all the time but needs pull ups as he likes to try the toilet and potty from time to time so has to be able to pull them up and down. My first impression of these was that they seem awfully small. I buy size 5 which does both my boys fine, however the Pampers ones are definitely smaller than the supermarket ones I usually buy. They are also slightly thinner, but I assumed this was just because they are designed from better, more absorbant material. These pull ups currently come with a Bob the Builder design, not that I am bothered what's on them! They look well made and seem soft and comfortable. I suppose overnight was not the best time to try them out! My eldest woke up early this morning complaining of being wet, which never happens with out usually pull ups. I suppose these aren't really designed for overnight use, but even during the day I am finding I have to change my youngest a lot more often. One of these is getting soggy and bogged down within a few hours as opposed to an easy 4 or 5 hours with the Tesco ones I'm used to. I won't be putting my sons in these overnight again and won;t buy them again once they are used up.
My eldest was potty trained during the day before she was two and at night about a month after she was two. I had refused to get drawn into using pull ups or easy ups (not sure what they were called then). I thought that they would feel like nappies so it would confuse her so I stayed away from them and potty training was quite simple, in fact it was easy! My youngest was different there was no way she was ready to get rid of the nappies before she was two. As I was increasing my hours at work at the end of September I wanted her potty trained for nursery - not that it would be a problem for them, it was just how I felt she would be about 3 weeks off 2 and a half when she started. So as I had previously kept the nappy off to see how she found it I realised that it was not going to be quite so easy second time round. I still didn't think these pull up things should be used to potty train but I realised I had to try something different this time round so against my better judgement I bought some pampers easy up pants. As I got one out of the pack I noticed they had a picture of Bob the Builder on, I opened it out and thought it seemed thinner than a normal nappy, there was elastic around the leg holes and stretchy thin sides that can be easily ripped off. i decided to tell my daughter that we were getting rid of her nappies and getting grown up nappies and if she needed a wee she needed to tell me and we could quickly pull them down. She seemed really excited about this and told her daddy and older sister what was going to happen - but it didn't. In the end I picked a day when potty training was starting properly so the easy ups went on when she sat in her chair and ate or when it was sleep time. As they were only being used for a short time during the day there wasn't any leaks and at first she saved it up for when these went on so they seemed pretty good there. My daughter did ask for her grown up nappies to be put on at other times but they never were. I think she liked the fact that Bob the Builder were on them. At night there were never any leaks and they were a lot easier to put on than normal nappies as my daughter could just step into them. After a few days these were only used at night and when she firsts goes to bed she likes to read some books for 10 minutes or so. The potty goes in her room and she can quite easily pull them down when she needs to go and pull them back. So she does feel grown up and knows they are a bit like knickers. In the morning I just rip the sides to take them off so I don't have to take her pyjamas fully off. They are always dry and she shouts me early morning or even in the middle of the night if she wants the toilet so she doesn't see them as a nappy (at 4 in the morning i wish she would!) A pack of 20 juniors from Tesco costs £5.98 which is expensive if you were going to use them as normal nappies. A box of 52 costs £11.98. Sometimes you can get them cheaper when they have an offer on. Would I recommend easy ups - In a way I would I think they make the child feel more grown up and they are better at bedtime if they are potty trained in the day but you don't want to take chances at night. They are expensive so I wouldn't use them before I was going to try and potty train and personally I would only use them for potty training if they needed help and wasn't already telling you they had done or needed a wee etc
My little bundle of joy is just over 2 years old now, and although I think she's almost ready for potty training she's not quite there yet. Unfortunately, she has got to the stage where she really hates being made to lie down and have her nappy changed, so we decided it was time to give pull-up nappies a try instead of the traditional style with tabs. We do still use ordinary nappies at night (partly because they seem just a tiny bit more reliable, and partly because we bought in bulk and have loads left!), but we now always use Pampers Easy-up pants during the day. These nappies/pants (whatever you want to call them!) fit well and, although we've had a couple of leaks since starting to use them, I'd say the absorbency and reliability is pretty much comparable with other nappies we've used - you just have to make sure to change them when they need changing! They are well designed to appeal to toddlers, with pictures of Bob the Builder characters on. It's certainly a lot easier to get a struggling toddler into these, and one of the main reasons we're continuing to buy them is that our daughter absolutely loves them. She's really proud of her 'nappy-pants'/'Bob pants'/'builder pants' as she calls them, and gets all excited when it's time to put them on. I feel they will make the early stages of potty training easier too, as they are very easy to pull down and up (this MAY be a disadvantage if your child is prone to taking their own nappy and/or trousers off, however!). I'd defintely recommend trying these if your child is starting to resist ordinary nappies but isn't ready to go into ordinary underwear yet.
I am a reluctant convert to Pampers Easy Up Pants, and now use them with great success. My son, Amos, has just turned 2, and after 2 years as a cloth nappy addict i really did not want to change to a disposable nappy but was unsatisfied with the alternatives in cloth. Approaching his 2nd birthday it took us by surprise that he was showing more and more interest in using the loo, to copy his elder siblings, although he was in no way ready to go straight into big boy pants (which is what we have always done in the past at 2 1/2 years). I really did not want to like these - they are a wasteful product, bad for the environment and terribly expensive, but both my husband and I (and little Amos) have been very happy. They are soooo absorbant - we have not had any leaks with these at all, and will easily last overnight 7pm until 7am. They are also very slim fitting (although bulk out when wet), so give a feel of real pants. The elastic is very soft, and not too tight, so no red marks around the waste for a little one, and this makes them very easy to pull up and down for a stint on the potty as when required! The down side of this easy up and down function is that Amos has been known to pull his trousers and pants down in more innapropriate places, and has occasionally whipped the nappy off at bedtime and so wet his bed! I now need to make sure he wears a vest to bed under his pyjamas, and check on him 30 minutes after bed time to check he hasn't thrown his nappy away! I am yet to make up my mind if they help or hinder the potty training process, as we are still in the process of doing it at the moment. One part of me thinks they are a great thing, as AMos can wear them like pants, and slowly get used to going to the loo whilst wearing something to absorb any accidents, however, because they are so absorbant he does not feel wet, so may get lazy, as there is no real need to get to the loo. Only time will tell with that one though - and my carpets will certainly be saved until then! The design is nice enough, a bit boring, but i am used to wonderfully funky cloth nappies, and of course this does not affect the function of the Easy Up Pant. The really are not very pretty to look at though! All in all, they are great, i like them far more than i thought i would, and hopefully they will be a fantastic potty training tool!
The older she gets the more of a monkey she gets. Scarlet Ela may only be almost 16 months old but she is a right little madam on times and can certainly have almighty temper tantrums. These tantrums often happen when she is having her nappy changed and getting dressed making these times more and more difficult. For the last 15 months I have used various Nappies trying to get the best ones to suit her and have always settled for Pampers Active Fit. Now though it was time to try something which would make changing times abit easier. A friend suggested pull ups for me and has used them with her son since he was about a year old. I thought I had nothing to lose so on my weekly Morrisons trip I picked up a packet. I paid £13.00 for two packs of 62 as they were on offer this paticular week as they do seem quite expensive. Mu Mum usually picks up Scarlets Nappies from Asda for me with two boxes for £18.00 but I was running out before her next Asda shopping trip. I started using them the next day. Oh my gosh which way around do they go? If I can't master this there is no way my partner is going to be able to. I put them on, took them off, turned them round and tried again. Which ever way they went it just did not look at all right. Poor Scarlet has a major buldge in her jeans now because I am sure Mummy still has them on backwards. I know I am a first time Mum but surely I can't be that stupid! Right I thought which ever way around they go they look the same so on went her trousers and off she went to play. Any builder would be proud of the saggy builders bum she has in these pull ups. I laughed out loud when I saw her waddling around the room with her little peachy bum hanging out (even tho she hadn't had a wee in them yet). Maybe it was because I had put them on wrong that this is happening. So I turned them around but again she had the ultimate builders bum. It seems like I spent all day pulling them up for her. When she did finally have a wee the Nappy was down around her ankles. We did not have any leaks when having a wee but when it come to changing a dirty Nappy I knew these definatly weren't for us. It was just everywhere. As the nappy was hanging so low it just all slipped out the side and all over her trousers and down her legs. Poor Scarlet baby. I had to strip her off and bath the poor monkey. I thought these Easy ups would have been fantastic as they are produced by Pampers, a very reputable company and we already use Active fit which we find amazing even if she sleeps a twelve hour night. There was no way I was going to try her through the night in these easy ups. I was hoping that they would also be able to prepair her for potty training and getting used to pulling up pants but I gave the rest of the pack to my friend who loves them, I couldn't even imagine trying to use them again when she is ready to potty train as I wouldn't recommend them. We only tried them for a day and went straight back to Active Fit.
