“ Brand: Pampers / Type: Nappies „
* Prices may differ from that shown
As any parent will know, your little ones change very quickly from the day they are born. One thing that will always remain constant will be your nappy usage! Before having my daughter, I must admit that I thought a nappy was a nappy surely? It wasn't until we began using different varieties that we realised that nappies differ greatly in their quality.
My daughter weighed an impressive 7lb 12oz (large to us as we were told the whole way through my pregnancy that she was going to be a small baby!!) so she fitted into Pampers New Baby size One nappies. Pampers New Baby size One nappies are suitable for babies within the weight range of 5-11lbs. As you can see the nappies cover quite a wide size range and to be honest, they were a little on the large size on my daughter to start with but because Pampers have a strong and stretchy tab at the size, they ensure that there are no leakages and the nappy fits snugly to your baby's bottom.
The nappy shape seems more than suitable for a newborn baby although with Molly being on the smaller side of the weight range, they did tend to come up quite high on her body in the first few weeks. Pampers do not feature a cut-out area for the cord but I found that you could simply fold down the top of the nappy to ensure that the cord got some fresh air and didn't get caught up within the nappy.
Molly is breastfed which means that her bowel movements can be quite runny. Pampers have been specially designed to absorb the consistency of newborn poo and I have to say that so far, they haven't disappointed. Without being too graphic, the liquid part of her stools is drawn into the absorbent part of her nappy and away from her tender little bottom ensuring that it does not irritate her skin.
I have very sensitive skin and one thing we were worried about was Molly having the same problems but so far, she still has perfect skin and I think that part of this must be down to the excellent quality nappies that Pampers design.
Pampers New Baby are one of the more expensive brands on the market but in my opinion they are more than worth it. I have also tried Morrison's own and Tescos own nappies and although we haven't had any problems with either brand, I have to say that you can really feel the difference in quality. Pampers nappies feel soft and flexible whereas the other brands feel quite rigid in comparison.
Price wise, I have found that the price of Pampers really does vary from supermarket to supermarket. Currently at Tescos, they have various special offers on the Pampers and combined with vouchers that I manage to hunt down online, it really does help to bring the cost of the nappies down. At the moment, a pack of 32 nappies is £5 on special offer making each nappy around 15p.
In my opinion, Pampers may cost more than other brands but they are more than worth it. And that comes from someone who is forever looking at ways of saving money. My only piece of advice would be to compare prices between stores as the special offers really help to bring the overall cost down.
Ask anyone to name a nappy brand and they'll probably say Pampers. They are one of the most well known brands on the market but are they actually as good as they claim to be? Whenever you see adverts made by Pampers they always rave about how comfortable they are and how well they fit and are leak proof but I don't think that this is entirely true.
Pampers New Baby are the smallest sized nappy Pampers make which are readily available. They are for babies sized 4-11lbs but I would dispute that! My baby was 6lb when born and the nappy completely covered her, it was so big it had to be folded in half and still looked far too big for her! If she was just 4lb I doubt that it would be fitted at all!
They are easy to fit, they fasten and secure just the same way as other disposable nappies by pulling the sticky tabs over around the legs to secure in place. They are pretty flexible so as your baby grows you can not pull them quite as far and they will still be secured in place.
They are semi-leak proof. I would say that when your baby is right in the middle range of the weight- so around 8lbs the nappies are fine, they don't leak at all unless you don't put them on correctly! once your baby starts to be more like 9-11lbs then be sure to expect lots of accidents. When my daughter weighed 9lbs I could be sure that 90% of the time the nappy would leak which would lead to all sorts of messy situations so much so that my wife ended up not really wanting to go out of the house knowing that we were due a messy nappy!
The nappy does seem to be very absorbent, it held a lot of liquid over night without ever leaking, it just appears to be the other side of things that the nappy wouldn't keep in!
The nappy seems to have a smell to it, a strange plastic-type smell which isn't very pleasant but it isn't too over powering, you can't really smell it through your baby's clothes.
They fitted quite well around her body and never gave any nappy rash which we were relieved about. They have a softer feel to them than the huggies nappies we tried and seemed to fit quite nicely around her legs and tummy. We never experienced a problem with them falling down or twisting out of place so they were very good for that side of things.
Pampers are readily available in so many shops, supermarkets, baby stores, chemists and online. They vary in price depending upon the place and the offer. They come in packs of 28 and 54. A packet of 54 retail at £6.99 from Boots.
I think that they are quite good value for money as they do cost similar to that of HUggies which is probably their biggest rival. It just frustrates me though that they can charge high amounts compared to supermarket own brands when they do cause little accidents and the sizing guide is only very vague, my daughter was only small yet she couldn't get in the nappies still at 11lb nor would they fit her properly until she was 7lb!
I would recommend these in terms of comfort, they definitely looked like they fitted nicely arond her legs and never left any marks on her skin. They also have a well designed packet that opens in a particular way so it's easy to get your nappies out without them all tumbling out or without you having to struggle to get them out mid-change.
I would be a bit careful about the fit though and be prepared for some leakages as your baby starts to reach the top end of this weight!
So finding out that huggies were no longer selling in the UK i was gutted. With the arrival of my new baby only a few months away i had relatives stashing up on huggies nappies for me. Unfortunately all the smaller sizes were sold out so ive got them in 3, 4, 4+ etc. i had no choice but to purchase pampers for new baby.
I was so against pampers because with my first child i found them useless. Their sizing seemed inaccurate to me and because of this they were either leaking or leaving marks on baby's legs.
It seems to me that different nappies just suit different babies because for me, this time around, pampers are perfect!
I love pampers and wont look back now.
Currently we are on new baby size 2 which suits weight 3-6kg. I assume we will be moving on to size 3 soon.
The sizing seems accurate and whilst slightly out of weight range theres no leaking or tightness. The material they are made from is quite soft so good for baby.
'New wetness indicator' this is so handy when baby is very small and youre not sure whether or not they need changing. There is a vertical yellow strip down the front of the nappy which turns blue when wet. The strip goes right the way round so you can judge just how wet the nappy is.
'Unique absorb away layer' this is largely ideal for new baby number twos. There just seems to be layers upon layers of protection.
'New ultra soft' this i have already mentioned. It is almost fluffy feeling and doesnt have that cold texture which most brands do.
These nappies are ultra stretchy which create a snug feeling from front to back for baby.
They feature a lightly coloured picture on the front of unisex colours of green, yellow and orange. This is situated at the top of the nappy. A variety of different pictures are used. The size of the nappy is also indicated on the front.
I usually purchase these nappies in my local asda for £10 for a box of 74 however sometimes they do have offers on which make them a bit cheaper.
I cannot recommend these nappies enough. Although pampers and I didnt get off to the best start i couldn't praise them enough now.
We decided that we would start with the Pampers brand as it was one we are familiar with and although a little more expensive we have found after trialling some other brands we have always come back to these Pampers nappies.
Pampers are more expensive and I have found that they generally work out at around 20p per nappy, compared with around 13p for some of the supermarket own brands. This means that it probably costs in the region of £4 extra per week to use the Pampers brand, a saving not to be sniffed at. This is based on using around 8 nappies per day.
The fit is far superior with these nappies. The tabs are more elasticated than other brands we have tried and the front and the back of the nappy is blindingly obvious. For someone who hadn't changed many nappies before this was quite useful in the beginning. As I said before the fit seems to be superior, with other nappies we have tried our child seems to get quite red on the inside of the leg and I think this was due to the other nappies rubbing in side of the legs. As a new born skin is so sensitive we felt it was important for the extra pennies to go back to the pampers to avoid irritating the skin.
These nappies are also super absorbent. There is a mesh type material inside the nappy which seems to lock away a lot of the dirt in the nappy keeping it away from your child's skin as much as possible. There is also a line on the nappy which changes colour when the nappy is soiled. This is a nice little addition to the nappy I thought especially in the very early days when the nappies weren't particularly heavy when wet.
These nappies, although more expensive, are certainly the favourite brand in my house out of all the brands we have tried so far and I would recommend these for fit, ease of use and comfort to baby to any new parent.
Before Freya was born it was decided that she would be using Pampers therefore quite a few packs of these New baby nappies from Pampers were bought before she was born and there are packs of them at everyones houses.
The nappies come in three sizes - 1, 2 and 3. This should be sufficient for all new babies because the size 3 nappies fit up to 15lb babies. You can get the nappies in various pack sizes, we have a lot of the 45 packs around because they were on offer before Freya was born. The RRP for these is £6.99, a box of 74 is £11.99 and you can also get a smaller carry pack of 23 nappies for £3.99.
The nappies are good for newborns because they absorb the babies waste. As any parent will know babies have a lot of soft poo to begin with and the material and design of these nappies makes it easy to absorb this. There is also a line which goes from yellow to blue when your baby has used the nappy.
The nappies are white in colour and have a nice design around the top of the nappy. Designs vary but all are predominantly yellow in colour so they are perfect for both boys and girls. The nappy has a simple design and it is done up using two velcro style stickers, one each side.
I find it really easy to get these nappys on Freya, they unfold easily and the stickers stick on really well. The nappy fits well and it never gapes or pulls anywhere on Freya. Freya is still in size 1 of the nappies which is for 4 to 11lb babies. She is currently around 9lbs (she was 8lb 3oz about 10 days ago so this is an estimated guess) and they are just beginning to look a bit like she could do with going up to the next size.
The nappies are kind to Freya's skin and although she has had some soreness and redness she has never had a bad nappy rash and she doesnt need cream on every time she is changed.
I find that the nappies absorb wee really well and they have never leaked. However, poo does sometimes escape the nappy and therefore gets onto her clothes. This isnt a problem 95% of the time because babies of Freyas age (4 weeks today!) dont tend to produce too much waste but if she does have a particularly bad nappy you can be sure she might end up with a dirty babygro.
The nappies fit Freya well and have done since she was born when she weighed 6lbs 15oz. At around 9lbs we are beginning to think about moving onto the next size but they are not too tight yet. She can move her legs about with ease and the nappies never restrict her. They absorb well most of the time and we wouldnt try an alternative brand because Freya finds these comfortable and they dont irritate her skin. They are a premium nappy with a high price tag (15-17p per nappy depending on pack size) but they can almost always be found on some sort of offer somewhere.
After being hugely disappointed by the performance of Huggies newborn nappies I was looking for a nappy that wouldn't leak.
I brought Pampers New Baby size 2 mini economy pack of 62 nappies when they were on offer at Tesco,at the moment they are retailing at a normal price of £9.98 but whenever they are on offer I would advise to stock up.
They come in a yellow and green vacuum packed carry pack and as soon as you pick it up from it's weight you wouldn't think that there would be so many nappies as they are in it.The size is for 3-6 kg and my son being of average weight used these up until he was 2 and a half months old.
Now for the performance,well these nappies are a lot better at keeping my son dry especially as I now do not have to get up in the middle of the night to change him as the Huggies nappies would not last through the night.I liked the fact that they are so soft to touch reassuring me that my son would be comfortable in it.These nappies do not bulge too much either when that need changing and once removed you immediately notice the difference as my son's skin was actually dry.
The only negative point would be that they are more expensive than other brands but then I believe the price is justified when considering the added benefits and quality you are paying for.
When Jayden was in the Special Care Unit for a week, to a certain extent they provided some of the equipment you needed, however they did like you to bring in your own nappies, however if you did run out they had a supply of them there that you could use, the brand that they used were Pampers New Baby. As well as using these in hospital we also had several packets of these nappies at home as we had stocked up on nappies leading up to Jayden's birth. I was pleased to give these a try in hospital before opening the packets I had, however I was extremely impressed with them and have since purchased a few more packets of these.
The Pampers New Baby nappies come in a plastic type wrapper, the front of the packet is half green with the Pampers logo at the top and "New Baby" written in the centre in a yellow oval, the right hand side of the front of the packet is taken up with a picture of a mother and her baby. The only other information on the front of the packet is the size of the nappies, the amount in a packet and the words "Dry Max" written in the middle in a blue circle. All of the main product information is on the pack of the packet, this is half green and half yellow. In the centre of the packet is a picture of a nappy stretched out, there are then small notes written around it pointing to different parts of the nappy explaining what they are, there is also a small sentence at the top of the packets explaining the Dry Max writing on the front of the packet. The packet has a clear plastic handle on top of it so you can easily carry them, the packet fits tightly around the nappies inside making it compact and easy to store.
The Pampers New Baby nappies are plain white with a yellow strip around the waist, on this yellow strip is a cute picture of 2 ducks and a baby Elephant, there is also a small Pampers logo, the design on the front of the nappies is definitely unisex. The nappies are made from breathable and soft cotton this is ideal for your baby's skin and makes them much more comfortable to wear and as the back of the packet states the inside of the nappy is specifically designed to absorb soft poop. The legs of the nappy are stretchy making them a good fit and also means that the nappy can move with your baby without them leaking. The Pampers New Baby nappies fasten in the same way that most nappies do, there is a small yellow tab either side of the nappy which sticks to the waistband, the sides are super stretchy and these tabs can be overlapped and stuck so that the nappy will fit a small baby, when we first put these on Jayden we did actually have to overlap the tabs just so that they would fit him, however they can also be fastened in the regular way to fit slightly bigger baby's, the tabs can actually stick to any part of the strip around the waist so they are designed to fit baby's of all sizes.
Price & availability
Pampers New Baby nappies are available in most supermarkets as well as shops such as Superdrug and Boots, we purchased our Pampers New Baby nappies from our local Tesco. The packet of 27 nappies that we purchased cost us just £3.00, we also had coupons for this product as well so we got them even cheaper. The Pampers New Baby nappies do come in larger packets, obviously these are slightly more expensive however they are still reasonably priced. Generally I would say that the Pampers New Baby nappies are excellent value for money, the amount of time a packet lasts varies however they are quite reasonable to buy.
Pampers New Baby nappies come in a variety of sizes which are all indicated by a number and refer to you baby's weight
* Size 1 - Newborn 4 - 11lbs
* Size 2 - Mini
* Size 3 - Midi
As I have said I was extremely impressed with these nappies after using them on Jayden in hospital, I have used them on and off now since he was born and every time I have been pleased with them. I particularly like the way you can pull them tightly around your baby's waist, this was especially handy for me as Jayden is a small baby, the next size down nappies would have been to small for him, although these ones were a little bit big, I could easily pull them tight around his waist and they securely fastened and stayed in place. The other thing I liked about these nappies and one of the most important is that they do no leak, they are described as being super absorbent and they definitely are, so far we have not had the nappies leak at all, also when I remove Jayden's nappy his skin never feels wet, any moisture is absorbed into the nappy and away from his skin helping to prevent nappy rash. These nappies are very good value for money, they are reasonably priced, for me they were even cheaper as we have coupons for this product. I will definitely continue to use this product and would recommend it to anyone to try on their baby, these nappies really are of an excellent quality.
If you have read my review regarding Huggies newborn nappies, you would have seen that I switched to Pampers New Baby nappies sharpish after constantly experiencing leaks.
The ones that I purchased are called Pampers New Baby Total Care Newborn. I purchased them in a big bag (54 in total) and paid £5.50 in Tesco. The New Baby range comes in 3 sizes; 1 (2-5 kg), 2 (3- 6kg) and 3 (4- 7 kg). For my new baby, I bought size 1.
I fell in love with these nappies in an instant. They have a super cute baby elephant design to the front in sizes 1 and 2, then when you get to 3, the design is also to the rear. The nappies are so, so soft which is great for delicate baby skin. The sides are super stretchy; very handy when you need to adjust the nappy according to the size of your fast growing baby. They also have adjustable fastening which don't lose their stickiness, so if you do it up incorrectly the first time, you needn't worry.
When reading about the nappy, I found out that they are the only newborn nappy with the Allergy UK seal of approval, which reassured me that they would be kind to sensitive baby skin.
I had no leaks at all whilst using these nappies. I do use reusable nappies now, but would have no problems recommending these nappies to friends or family. I also use the Pampers economy nappies.
This review is for Pampers New Baby Dry Max nappies; I think they might be different to the total care ones pictured above but I'm not sure how! I am reviewing the size 1 nappies which are for babies weighing between 4-11lbs.
Before my baby was born (he came along on August 1st :)), I had bought quite a few varieties of nappies in preparation when I saw them on offer in the supermarkets' baby events and I had quite a few packs of Pampers. Pampers is a tried and tested, trusted brand and so I was in full confidence that baby and I would get on well with the brand, although I was aware that Pampers nappies are more pricey than supermarkets' own brands. So, when my baby boy was born, we were able to test them out!
The nappies are tiny in the first size but they look quite big on my 7lb 1oz newborn. They feature a cute picture of a baby elephant on the front and have a small number 1 on the front, helping you see what size they are once out of the packet. They have yellow tabs which seem to stick with more of a velcro fastening than a self adhesive fastening which is so much better as I found if you get cream on the self adhesive tabs they don't stick and also, I have found it necessary to reposition the tabs to get the best fit on my wriggly baby and they don't lose any sticking power which is great.
The nappies feature a Dry Max technology which consists of the material used in the nappy being soft and breathable like cotton, super absorbing technology specifically designed to absorb soft newborn poo as well as urine, super stretchy sides to allow a snug fit and an overlapping fastening for smaller babies and a regular fastening for bigger babies. I have yet to figure out how the two fastenings work, on closer inspection of the nappy it only seems to fasten one way and the snugness of the fit depends on how tight/loose you fasten the nappy!
The nappies come in packs of varying sizes. I have packs of 27, 54 and 88 and come at various prices, often there are offers on in the supermarkets. For example in Asda at the moment, a pack of 88 costs £10 but you could buy 2 54 packs for £10 which would be a better deal.
So, how do they perform? Well, so far so good! Once we managed to get the nappy on properly, making sure that the frills around the legs were sticking out and not folded inwards and making sure that the tabs were stuck down pointing down at an angle (we found this works really well to create a better fit!), we have had very few leaks. We've not had any pooey leaks I hasten to add, just wet leaks. The nappies are very absorbent and absorb wee very well and they do seem to take the moisture out of the poo. My son's skin hasn't become sore with nappy rash at all yet and his skin is generally kept quite dry unless he's got a particularly soggy nappy in which case his skin looks a bit wrinkled and waterlogged bless him. A bit of free bum time sorts this out though!
Pampers so far are my favourite brand and as long as I stock up when there are special offers on, they don't become too expensive. It's worth paying a little more for the quality anyway I feel for my boy's delicate bumberini!
After using only huggies nappys with my oldest son, i was planning on doing the same with my new baby so when i was out shopping with my friend for my hospital bag contents i decided i would do the same for my second child, until my friend who had recently given birth told me that she used these as not only were they cheaper then the new born huggies, she also found them to be kinder to her babies skin.
So i decided to give them a try, i can honestly say they are the best new born nappies i've ever used i've never had a leakage and find them to usually be slightly cheaper then other leading brand nappies in my local super markets.
It's also handy that they now come with a little plastic handle at the top of the packet too, so makes it easier to push pram and carry nappies to checkout!
When I was pregnant with my daughter (only three months ago, why does it feel like a lifetime!?), one of the questions I was asked was 'Huggies or Pampers'?. There are lots of different nappy options out there but as these two are the brand leaders, I think it is assumed we'd be using one or the other (cloth nappies hardly being practical in a second floor apartment!)
At first we went for Huggies Nappies, as we'd been given about two packs for free with the various gift sets you get given as an expectant mother. But we soon found these were unsuitable for our daughter - they just weren't absorbent enough. As she is a breastfed baby her poo is a bit more watery and she leaked terribly through these nappies - when she was only about a week old, she leaked poo all down my husband's T-Shirt and I think this was the turning point to change brands!
So we went for Pampers New Baby Size 1. These nappies have been absolutely brilliant for our daughter and we've stuck with them ever since. The first size is suitable for new babies 4 - 11 lbs (there is a micro version for smaller or premature babies). They're really cute nappies, as they have a bright picture on the front with a little baby elephant (like on the packet picture, above). The tabs are very easy to use, they're yellow and grip very well onto the front of the nappy.
Even with the mammoth amount of pee and poo my little one manages to produce, we've never ever had a leak. The inner mesh keeps her bum dry, and the padded absorbent core holds loads of mess - my daughter has started sleeping for five hour stretches at night, and the nappy copes well with this, though it is heavy when we change her!
The next sizes up are 2 (6 - 13lbs) and 3 (9 - 15lbs), after that you move out of New Baby territory, and onto regular size 4 nappies. Due to the fact my daughter grows fast I never bulk buy too many nappies. We can use a box in a week - it depends on the size of the nappy as to the amount you get in the box, you get 108 in Size 1 and Size 3 and 124 in Size 2. It works out cheaper to get a box when you get them on offer in the supermarket - they can hover between £9 and £10 on sale which is excellent (or you can use Amazon's subscribe and save option to save a little and get them right to your door). My daughter is on size 3 now and is only just 12 weeks tomorrow, obviously each baby is different, so if you are expecting, I'd just buy one pack of size one until you know what you're getting, baby size wise, then send out hubby or friend to get a box of the ones you need. This saves any waste.
I have managed to get through the nappy stages with maybe only five of each previous size left over which is great. The only nappies we had left over in bulk were the Huggies ones.
So, in the 'great nappies wars' I can only report that the winners were, by a country mile, Pampers. They're cute, they're easy to put on, they cope admirably well with newborn 'doings' and we trust them, which is important when you're going somewhere where you really need nappy reliability. We carry a change of clothes in our change bag, just in case, and have only had to use it once since switching to Pampers - and that's when our daughter was sick over herself - her bum was dry and happy!
So, I can't give these nappies anything other than five out of five stars as they're great value for money and so right for us.
I had my daughter 2 weeks ago and I had already decided to use Pampers months before after reading the reviews on here. I picked up several boxes of size 1 from Asda during the baby event which was 90 nappies for £10. These are normally on offer though I check on my supermarket.com before buying them.
As I was given several packs of Huggies I took those in my hospital bag, I had to stay in hospital a few days longer though and the nappies they supplied were Pampers which I started using instead of Huggies to see what the difference was. These size 1 nappies fit babies who weigh 4-11 lbs or 2-5kg. These nappies have Pampers 'dry max' technology and 'dual absorb core' which locks away wetness. Pampers also state these nappies are made from a soft and breathable material.
As I stated in my review for Huggies size 1 when my daughter was born she was 8lb. The Huggies nappies were really big and bulky on her, theses nappies were a much better fit, even though the weight range was the same. The nappies themselves have pictures printed on the front and the size and Pampers logo. The material is really soft and flexible. Like Huggies these nappies have double security around the leg area to prevent leaks. The waistband is really flexible and the nappies have resealable tabs that you can overlap to fit your baby.
My daughter is breastfed so have several poos a day which are really runny and sometimes messy. These nappies do an excellent job of containing the poo. They are also a lot less bulky than Huggies even when wet. I haven't had any leaks so far they have kept my daughter dry overnight even though she wiggles and moves the whole night long. The only thing I have noticed with these nappies is when my daughter does poo you the nappy changes colour in certain areas. Having said that these are still my preferred choice.
I would recommend these to all new parents, they are definately worth paying the extra for. They are really absorbent and prevent leaks. They also have a great fit and are really flexible. The material is soft and hasn't irritated my daughters skin at all.
I have been using these nappies for two weeks now, my baby is three weeks old. For the first week whilst in hospital i used a supermarket brand.
I changed the brand just because these were on offer in Asda at the time of two boxes for £20. This was for 160 nappies.
When he was on the other brand from newborn he did have bad nappy rash. This cleared up once I changed to pampers and I believe this to be because they seemed more absorbent than the supermarket brand. This meant his skin was not in contact with as much dampness as before.
With these nappies I have only had one problem with leakage and that was more to the fact that he had been wriggling so much i had not secured the nappy properly.
I did find though that the size 1 though were at little big on my baby when he was weighing under eight pounds. Now that he has gained weight the fit is a lot more secure on him.
The prices vary from place to place but larger retailers like supermarkets and Boots very often have multiple purchase deals.
Pampers new baby total care nappies
I bought Pampers whilst pregnant to prepare for our new baby and to take advantage whilst they were on offer at the supermarket. It's a brand I often seen advertised on the TV and one that gets good feedback when you speak to other parents so I went with the tried and tested route.
These nappies look tiny when you first see them but you soon get used to it. It's not long before they are in the next size so best not to go mad and buy too many (like I did!).
They are decorated with a cute little elephant and the pampers logo. The nappies are easy to use and have tape on the sides for fixing in place.
The nappies so far have been kind to my baby's skin and absorb liquids well. We've had no leakages so far with Pampers thank goodness!
On the pack, the size one nappies fit babies that weigh between 4-11 pounds. That covers the weight of the majorities of babies when born and it just depends then on how quickly they put weight on before they are in the next size up, so it can be hard to judge how many you'll need.
I do feel a little guilty about the landfill that is created with nappies, but clearly I'm not guilty enough to go about having reusables.
Buying in bulk is often cheaper and I paid £10 for a box of 80 nappies. At the rate we're getting through them we need to buy in bulk, believe me! It's worth waiting (if you can) and buying when the supermarket has offers on.
There's no doubt that Pampers are a premium nappy and I've been happy so far with their performance. Price wise, I wish they were a little cheaper but you could have probably guessed that one!
I'm happy with this brand and will continue to buy it through the larger sizes. The capacity to keep in a few wees during the night is good, no leaks so far. We have experienced the odd leak with poo but this is more down to the volume factor, possibly too much information but our baby tends to do one poo a week at the moment and when she does go, it's massive! I can't fault this nappy for that really as it would challenge the capacity of any nappy.
You want the best for your baby and therfore when my son was born, i thought that all the best branded products would undoubtedly be the best.
I started collecting nappies thoughout my pregnacy from Huggies, to Asda little angels and the above PAMPERS NEW BABY TOTAL CARE NAPPIES which i am going to review.
As you can see the packaging is very distinctive with the Pampers green and a pale yellow to signify newborn babies. On the front of the packagin it staes the size of the nappy and also the weight of the baby that would be suitable for it to fit. There is also a picture of a very smiley woman holding a very smiley baby wearing a Pampers nappy signifying that the product is great for both mum and baby.
As you would expect, the nappies are on the more expensive end of the disposable type and retail at around £3.80 for 27 nappies and with a newborn, this is not going to last you very long, hehe.
The nappies thamselves are easy on the eye predominently white in colour, giving the illusion of cleanliness, and have a cute little band avross the top of the front of the nappy where the 'stickies' are attached.
When puting these nappies on baby, they are very pliable and soft both on the outside and what touches babies shin, and the edging that runs around babies groin is quite stretchy and therefor easy to put on giving room for those kicking legs!
The nappies tend to hold agood amount of urine and faeces and i have to say that it was very rare that my son got a sore bottom from wearing these nappies.
One criticism i have with these nappies, and i may be the only one who thinks this, but despite the nappies holding well and being comforatable, i could always smell wee with them. Every nappy that my son would wear, i would be able to smell urine before even undoing the nappy. I do feel that Pampers havent quite sussed the 'odour eating' element of these nappies.
Overall i think these are good nappies although not my favorite, especially for the price. They are not cheap and for the money paid, i dont expect to smell wee.
These are very widely available and Pampers even have their own website that will tell you all about the nappies and give other advice about babies and their upbringings.
Pampers New Baby with Total Care is made specifically to absorb not only pee but also a newborn?s soft poo better than ever before.
