Advantages: Great for sensitive skin
Disadvantages: They often leak!
Having given birth to my daughter 10 weeks ago, I have recently had a crash course in the world of nappies.
There are a number of different brands out on the supermarket shelves, however I decided to try Pampers first. The reason behind this was that I had heard that Pampers were the leading market brand, and further more their packaging boasted that they were voted 'the leading brand by mums' All very impressive.
I was also drawn to the attractive green packaging which made it clear that ''new baby nappies were available. I was able to choose the right pack by looking at the weight measurments. For a new baby, you can get 3 sizes - 1 (2 - 5 kg) 2 (3 - 6 kg) 3 (4 - 7 kg). This was made clear on the packaging.
The features of Pampers New Baby nappies are numerous.
The packaging boasted of ' super-absorbent technology.' In real life terms what this means is that pampers nappies have been specifically designed to absorb soft poo instantly, and they claim to be the best on the market at doing this.
Did the nappies work for my baby?
The nappies had adjustable fastenings which stuck down well and kept the nappy securely in place.
In addition they were soft on her skin, and the stretchy sides left room for flexibility.
Pamper's newborn nappies have Allergy UK seal of approval, and are therefore good for sensitive baby skin, and my daughter never had a single nappy rash when using them.
HOWEVER! Unfortunately, these nappies reguarly leaked! I have heard that pampers have attempted of late to make their nappies more slimline and have therefore taken the bulkiness out of them. I found that they got very heavy when my daughter urinated and had to be changed quite often, and if she had a poo, often it would leak through the sides of the nappy and onto her clothes, even if I fastened the nappy securely!
As a result after using several packets of Pampers nappies, I switched brands. So far I have used Huggies and Boots own brand nappies, and I have to say I find these nappies to be less leaky than Pampers. I was surprised by this as I thought that Pampers would have been far superior but it seems not.
Prices vary from store to store from around £5.98 to £7.99 approximately.
Your best bet is to look for special offers in places like Tesco and Boots where they often do 2 for 1 deals.
Would I recommend?
Not particuarly unless your baby has extremely sensitive skin and needs an allergy resistant nappy.
I would instead advise mums to try out a cheaper brand of nappy as they seem to do the same job and have less leakage!
Where to get more information?
Summary: Not worth the extra money, choose a cheaper brand
