Little price - big leak!

My little girl is currently 2 and is till in nappies. Sonce birth I have only used pampers. I am a neonatal nurse and they have never failed me at work so knew they wouldn't with my precious bundle. As she is now two I thought I would try something a little cheaper to see if they worked as well.
I paid £7.22 for 44 nappies which worked out at 16p per nappy not bad in comparison to pampers which are £9.99 for 42 nappies working out at 24p per nappy so a saving of 8p per nappy. As they say 'every little helps'. I was rather chuffed with my small but needed saving, I could not wait to get home and try them out.
**** The product****
A nappy to most people is just a nappy, to some mums a nappy is the difference between changing your child every four hours, sore bottoms and sleepless nights - to dry bottoms, long lasting and no soreness. Personally I do not like to have to regularly change as we tend to go out for long periods of time (obviously if she has had a bowel motion I change her immediately but for urine with the pampers it tends to absorb it well and you dont need to change too urgently). Our little girl never really suffers soreness (other than when teething) and has slept through since she was six months so we have not changed over night for well over a year.
The nappies come in a polythene bag that I cut open as I could not see an easy rip on it, they have a cotton feel to them and i feel they could be degradable. They claim to have an ultra absorbent core to prevent leaks and encourage little ones to have free movement.
The Nappies cost 16p per nappy and with this lost cost I could not complain too much. She never got sore whilst wearing these nappies.
Here are my problems. Firstly, I got throught the pack a lot quicker than when I have purchased pampers, there have been no changes in her drinking or bowel motions so i wondered why and then I thought about it. I only used 3-4 nappies per day with pampers, however with little ones I was getting through 5 or more per day as they didnt seem to hold her urine aswell and quite often leaked. I also found her srying one night and she was in a pool of urine which was very unpleaseant for all involved inparticular her!
Leaking bacame a regular problem having not been used to looking at the watch and constantly feeling to see how wet she was I had to check all the time through fear of having a complete outfit change.
If I had a friend that was struggling for money I would suggest she work out how may nappies she is using and whether it was financially viable purchasing these nappies. I think they probably do save a little bit of moneybut it does depends how many you use a day.
I personally will not be pircasing them again as the pampers pack lasted me over two weeks and these lasted me two weeks on the dot. I had more washing to do and a night of broken sleep not good for a working mum.
I have given these nappies a three star which I believe to be generous and honest!
thank you for reading Charlie
Summary: Would not purchase again due to the regular changing and leaking.
