Advantages: OK for newborn
Disadvantages: Useless for older baby / toddler
Having 3 children under the age of 5 I (they!) have got through a lot of nappies over the last few years. With my first children , twin girls, I have to say that I automatically assumed that Pampers would be the way to go, in fairness largely because they were the only brand I had heard of. The smaller sized nappies were OK, but as the girls grew larger and more active I found that they leaked quite a bit. Because of that, I switched to the much cheaper Tesco nappies, and was quite happy with those. I continued to use Tesco nappies for my youngest, now nearly two, and have had no problems with those. However, hubby bought some Pampers the other week by mistake, and they are worse than before, if anything. Youngest is a prodigious milk drinker ( and therefore wee-er!), and the Pampers nappies were absolutely useless, leaks everywhere, and 2 interrupted nights with a wet through toddler before we could get back to Tesco for a cheaper, but better version! So I would say that Pampers are OK for a newborn, but definitely buy a different brand as your baby gets a bit more active.
Summary: Pamapers were OK for our very young babies, but leaked really badly as soon as they got more active.
