As a mum I am always looking how to save money and get the best for my family, and there is not a more obvious choice that Pampers when it comes to nappies. Well, after buying a months supply of these I can assure you that I will not be buying them again. I normally like to do a positive sandwhich but i am afraid this time I will start with my singular positive and thats where it will end before a list of disadvantages. As its baby event time in one shop or another these were on offer, and yes they were cheap, too good to be true springs to mind. Now, from this box, I had two bags, from the first bag there was a few nappies at that when I put them on my little one the fastener came off, now I thought this would have been the end of it with a few faulty ones, but it got worse. The one thing a nappy is supposed to do, especially with them being called Simply dry, is to keep my baby dry, well the first day I used these I went out with him, and had to change the full outfit he was wearing every hour and a half as they leaked. I have learnt my lesson now and only try new nappies around the house. Before I even started the second packet I returned all the unused and faulty ones to Tesco. I can only hope this was a faulty batch, as I still use other Pamper products, but will never use Simply dry again.
Baby B is a a toddler now and getting into all sorts of trouble and so it's really important that her nappy fits well and still keeps her from having little accidents. When she was immobile we didn't really notice the difference between nappy brands, it was only once she started to walk and climb up stairs and things that we realised that nappies can vary greatly between brands and this can result in lots of accidents which can be avoided.
The Pampers Simply Dry packet is bright orange, there is no escaping from this when you look for it on the shelf at the supermarket, it definitely jumps off the shelf at you which is probably the reason why we bought it as we saw they were they right size for Baby b and decided to give them a go.
The packet is plastic which you can rip into but there is a tear trip which makes it easier to get into the packet. The nappies are then packed tightly on top of each other. When you are trying to get them out usually it's quite difficult to get the first one out as they're so densely packed but I like this, at least you know you get your money's worth instead of when you get a packet of crisps and you're mainly paying for air!
The packet has a little handle at the top a bit like in some loo roll packets which makes it easy to carry around but isn't exactly essential. The picture of the baby on the front looks very cute and he looks very happy as though suggesting that if your baby wore these nappies they too would be happy!
The size of nappy is displayed clearly on the front- size 4 maxi which is bigger than size 4 but not as big as size 5- 7-18kg so a very large range of weight.
Inside the packet are the nappies which are white and have little pictures on the front. The pictures have various animals on them- an orange cat, a purple monkey, a brown dog and a blue rabbit. These are only little but it always makes Baby B laugh when she looks at them and tries to make the noises that they make.
They are quite soft to touch both on the inside and the outside which I was surprised about as some nappies can be quite rough on the outside which can then irritate delicate skin when they expand.
The nappies are easy to put on with the tabs being very sticky so keeping them in place is easy. They fit nicely around the legs and tummy with there being plenty of space for you to adjust the tabs if you need to as the day goes on and your baby's tummy expands! They don't rub as your baby walks and they don't seem to effect walking in anyway.
When Baby B wears these she seems perfectly happy and comfortable and doesn't pull at her nappy or look uncomfortable so i can only assume that she is quite happy wearing them.
Do they work?
Yes they certainly do! These nappies are designed to channel the urine away from the skin and to absorb into the nappy channels instead of sitting against baby's delicate skin and it definitely works. Whenever I change Baby B's nappy her skin is often almost dry despite her nappy being full which I haven't come across before with other nappies. This then helps her skin to remain in as good condition as possible which is important with her as she has extremely sensitive skin which often results in terrible nappy rash and even thrush so finding a nappy which helps to channel away the urine is extremely important.
Baby B is a sleeper, a proper lazy baby who will sleep for 16 hours during the night and these nappies usually manage to keep everything in. We have probably had about 2 leaks in the last 6 months which is very good going and I don't think any other nappy has lived up to this before. When Baby B is active and crawling and climbing on top of things she also doesn't experience little leaks as this nappy is flexible so will move with her and stop her from being able to climb or fall down and get moved aside as she does move.
After wearing this nappy I have never seen any rings around her legs or near her tummy so it looks as though they don't rub even when they expand as urine is absorbed so this is really important as it would not be comfortable for her if they did begin to get tight.
These nappies are really very good and effective. We have tried various other brands and have been pleased with many but these are the ones that we tend to stick to as we know that they work well and are comfortable against Baby B's very sensitive skin.
The little pictures on the front of the nappies make them look cute and appealing to babies which is nice, we make nappy changing time fun by looking at the animals and doing impressions which always creates a laugh or two! They definitely hold in the urine and anything else with only a few leaks happening throughout the 6 months that we have used these. They are soft against the skin as the material is soft to touch and not at all rough which is very important as babies have very gentle skin so need material which is soft to touch. I do think that they live up to what they say they do as Baby B's skin is often quite dry despite having a wet nappy on so the absorbing abilities of this nappy works very well.
I am pleased with these nappies and we will continue to use them. They are cheaper to buy in bulk so look out for offers but they are good value for money as they work very well and don't cause any leaks or discomfort. They're available to buy from supermarkets and chemists and other similar stores.
When my twins grew out of the Pampers newborn range I started trying their other nappies to see which ones my girls got on with. Initially this was just the active fit and baby dry but when I saw that Pampers did a budget nappy I thought I would give them a try. I'd been buying own brand nappies to use when I knew the nappy wouldn't be on long and these Simply Dry ones were cheaper.
These Simply Dry nappies come in orange plastic carry packs and boxes which makes them stand out from the other nappies in the Pampers range. As a general rule the larger the nappy the smaller the number of nappies in the pack. All the plastic packs are easy to open with well marked perforations on the side. The packs clearly show the size of the nappy and the weight range that size covers. The box of size 4 nappies that I buy contains 80 nappies.
These nappies are not as absorbent as other Pampers but as the budget product of the range they aren't bad. I tend to put these nappies on first thing in the morning as I normally have to do another nappy change within a couple of hours. The nappies tend to bulge quite quickly but I have never had any leakages from them.
The elastic and velcro fastenings on these nappies is of the same quality as the more expensive Pampers and they feel soft and fit my girls nicely.
The nappies have small pictures on the front of animals, duck, rabbit, etc. They also have the number of the nappy size printed on them, 3, 4 or 5.
The starting weight for these nappies is 9lb (4kg) and goes up to 55lb (25kg)
Price and availability
I usually stock up on nappies when Tesco have their baby events or clubcard voucher exchange on baby products. Prices do vary and you need to do a lot of comparing to get the best deal. The size 4 I currently use are £11 for a box of 80 at Tesco and Sainsburys, they are slightly cheaper at Asda costing £10. Pampers Simply Dry are widely available from stockists of baby products.
Would I recommend?
Yes, I have been very happy with the performance of these Simply Dry nappies from Pampers. They are a budget nappy and so aren't as good as the more expensive nappies, they are however good for the price.
I've used these nappies for the past couple of months because I was finding that the supermarket own brands weren't suiting my baby as much as they were previously. The baby-dry pampers (the range up from these simply dry ones) are fantastic but can work out to be very expensive when at full price - these simply dry ones were billed as a cheaper but just as effective nappy range by pampers when they came out.
I agree on the whole that they are just as effective as their dearer counterparts - my baby wears them all of the time, even at night when she is asleep for 12 hours and very rarely do we have any accidents or leakages from them, even in this overnight period. The feel of them aren't quite as good as the baby dry, I don't think they're as soft and perhaps aren't as flexible but I've not found them to cause any nappy rash on my baby so I'm happy to continue using them. The Velcro fastening easily fastens back down whenever you want to check it and find it's ok to keep on.
I find these nappies a happy medium between the cheaper supermarket ones that seem to leak all the time for us now that our baby is over 6 months and the expensive brand names like pampers baby dry that can wear a hole in your pocket when using constantly - I think we found simply dry to be around £2.50 less per pack for the economy size than the original baby dry pampers. In my view the baby dry ones are not worth this much more per pack - these are definitely worth trying before settling for the more expensive ones in their range. It's got me thinking how much money I must have saved over the last few months by making such a small change.
I bought these nappies when my son was in size 5 and they were on special offer in Sainsbury's. Like many previous reviewers, I thought that being pampers they would be of a certain quality at the very least. As they were on offer at 2 for £12, I ended up buying two packs of 45 odd which worked out at less than 10p a nappy (which is my golden rule when trying to work out if the nappy deal is good value).
On first impressions the nappies seemed very good. They are as thin as most other pampers varieties and have the same cute pictures on the front, as well as a good strip where the tabs attach when you put the nappy on. I thought I had stumbled across a gem. That is until I used them on my son while we were on holiday in France.
I first not iced that the nappies became quite see through when he had done a wee, they seemed to bulk up quite a bit and look like they would tear through to the absorbent gel quite easily. Being quite thin material I also found that you could smell as soon as he had done a wee which I don't find normally.
Towards the end of our week away, I began to twig that he had had nappy rash for the last few days and it could be down to the nappies not keeping the moisture away fro his skin. Even with my normal bepanthen nappy rash cream, as soon as he used one of those nappies again, he became quite sore.
As There weren't many other options on our remote campsite we persevred with the nappies and set off to come home, involving a seven hour car journey. As the packet states that the nappies have the same 12 hour dryness of normal pampers I thought it should be no problem just to change him once during the journey. Think again! About an hour from home he started crying and becoming quite fidgety, it turned out the nappy had leaked substantially, thankfully only wee though! We ended up having to cover his car seat in towels and change him by the roadside to make the last leg of the journey. Not ideal.
I have now managed to use up the last if the nappies for short periods when we are going to be at home, however it has made me wary of straying from nappies I have tried and tested previously (which is quite a lot!). Next time I want a bargain I would go for supermarket own brands as although they don't have the thinness and look of pampers, they keep my son dry and his bottom happy!
- Why I Bought -
I first bought Pampers Simply Dry nappies for my son when there was a 3 for 2 baby event at Boots. I have always found Pampers to be very good quality but the nappies are very expensive. I noticed that the Simply Dry nappies were a little cheaper per nappy than other Pampers nappies so I thought I would give them a try.
- The Simply Dry Nappy -
This range caters for babies to toddlers with size 3 through to size 5 (4Kg-25Kg). They are designed to have the dryness you would expect from Pampers nappies but at a more affordable price (so they know their other ranges are too expensive?!). You can buy them in a small carry pack, a large pack or a jumbo box. Usually the bigger the pack the better value but with certain promotions this isn't always the case so it's worth working out the cost per nappy. It's also worth mentioning that as the size of the nappy increases you get fewer per pack.
The nappy itself is white in colour and has a turquoise and yellow band with an animal character on each one. They are reasonably attractive but not quite as nice looking as the Active Fit or Baby Dry nappies. It feels quite soft to touch both inside and out so I think my son is comfortable wearing them but they aren't quite as soft as the other Pampers nappies. They are quite slim compared to some other nappies but again not as slim as other Pampers nappies. They bulk up quite a lot when full of urine. They are very absorbent and I was quite surprised by how much they can hold. So far over the last six months or so we haven't had any leaks. They feel quite stretchy and give quite a nice fit but not quite as good as the Active Fit nappies. The white tabs are quite good quality, secure well and can easily be re-stuck if it needs to be adjusted. The leg holes are stretchy so they accommodate a range of leg sizes. My son is very active with his crawling and pulling himself up and these nappies cope rather well with this and don't hold him back in any way. Also he has never had any skin irritation caused by wearing these. We usually use these for day time use alongside the Active Fit nappies but they do also perform well at night. Over all I would say the quality is good but in every area I think it doesn't quite match up to the Active Fit and Baby Dry nappies
- Price and Availability -
Pamper Simply Dry nappies are available from all the main supermarkets as well as at Boots, Superdrug and Amazon. I tend to buy mine in Boots when they have a 3 for 2 baby event, or Sainsbury's or Tesco when they have an offer. I also usually use vouchers if I have any. I don't think I have ever paid full price but I probably would if I couldn't find any offers. I tend to buy these if they have a good offer compared to the Active Fit and Baby Dry nappies. The standard prices for the size 4s my son wears are £4.50 for 26 nappies, £7.29 for 50 nappies, or £9.85 for 80 nappies.
- Would I Recommend? -
I would definitely recommend Pamper Simply Dry nappies as they are good quality and we have had no issues with them at all. I don't think they are as high quality as other Pampers nappies but I feel the more reasonable price compensates for this.
When I was pregnant with my daughter I found nappy buying quite daunting as there is a whole range of nappies from different manufacturers but they all claim to do the same thing. I am not particularly loyal to any brand as I tend to buy what is on offer but do tend to go between Huggies and Pampers simply because I find these fit my daughter the best although Huggies were not great when she was a newborn. Nappies are a regular purchase and buying when on offer is definitely the best way of getting value for money.
On a recent shopping trip we knew we had to stock up and headed to the baby aisle which is where we seem to spend the majority of the shopping trip trying to weight up the best offers, lets face it there are always offers on nappies! In the end we purchased Pampers Simply Dry as it was buy one get one free on all packs. I hadn't used the Pampers Simply Dry before simply because I hadn't give them much thought as we'd always bought a different variety.
The Pampers Simply Dry is Pampers economy range, according to Pampers they understand that having a baby can be expensive so this is their cheaper alternative to a nappy to help save those pennies. However, they do claim that despite them being cheaper they will still provide the dryness your baby needs to there is no need to compromise. The one thing all of us as parents want when we have a baby in nappies is for them to be as comfortable as possible and as long as the Simply Dry nappies keep my daughter dry then I'm happy!
The nappies come wrapped in bright orange packaging which apart from featuring the green/yellow Pampers logo it also features an image of a baby wearing the nappy together with the product name and of course it also features the size of the nappy. You really cannot miss these nappies when on the shelf as the packaging is so bold but compared to the other Pampers nappies the packaging does look a little cheap which I guess is one area where Pampers can save the money to offer the nappies are lower prices.
The nappies themselves are completely white in colour and around the front at the top of the nappy there is a strip of bright colour featuring an image of a cartoon, the images vary throughout the pack but the bright, splash of colour certainly livens up what otherwise would be very boring and plain looking nappies! When I opened my first pack I was surprised at how thick the nappies were as I was expecting them to be slightly thinner as they are cheaper but when I opened them up there was plenty of padding and of course they had Pamper's "Extra-Dry Layer" which keeps the baby drier for longer.
My daughter is still incredibly petite and still fits in size 3 nappies but I was impressed that even the size 3 nappies compared to another brand of nappies I was using the Simply Dry nappies were a decent size. The Simply Dry nappies fit my daughter like a glove, they are not too big and definitely not too small and best of all they fit her around the waist perfectly. The nappies have the little frills which do need to be flicked out around the thigh to help keep any accident in and the tabs which go from back to front have enough give in them to hold the nappy securely and carefully in place. Despite them being quite thick once they are opened and on my daughter they are not at all bulky which is nice.
I have just finished my second pack of Pampers Simply Dry Nappies and I will definitely be buying them again. Each and every nappy kept my daughter dry and comfortable throughout the day (she doesn't wear them to bed as she wears a different nappy but I really can't complain about them. There were no leaks, no accidents which was great. They also don't swell too much which is good as I know this can make babies uncomfortable but the Simply Dry nappies did what they promise which was to keep my baby dry and they did. I would definitely recommend them apart from doing what they claim it is nice to save a little especially on a product which is bought regularly. 5 stars from me.

I have mentioned in previous reviews that I mostly use reusable nappies with my four month old daughter and find they work very well, however when there is a spell of bad weather and it is hard to get these washable nappies dry I go back to disposables. I also always use disposables at night, as although the reusables seem to keep my daughter dry and happy, I don't know if they would keep her this way all night, whereas I know the disposables would.
Like most mums to be I received numerous promotions from the likes of Pampers and Huggies in regards to nappies and so have virtually bought and tried all the main brands of nappies. My daughter, in the last month, has started to wear size 3 nappies, and it is then that these simply dry nappies come into play, as they start at size 3, and go up to size 5. Initially when I bought these nappies, I got them on 3 for 2 in Boots and couldn't quite understand why they were cheaper than the likes of pampers active fit, however later I heard other mums say that these were cheaper for a reason, because they didn't always keep their little ones dry as the product claims to.
The simply range from Pampers which include wipes are bright orange in colour and a pack of size 3 nappies with 32 in the pack currently retail at around £4.50, although they are often on offer. These nappies are supposed to come with an extra dry layer to ensure baby is kept dry.
Having previously worked my way through a pack of Pampers Baby Dry, when I opened this pack of Simply Dry, I immediately thought the nappies looked a lot thinner and cheaper, and I was quite concerned as I had stocked up whilst the 3 for 2 offer was on in boots. However, I know my little girl is only four months old, and therefore maybe not as heavy a wetter as some older babies, but I find that this nappy will keep her dry for almost 8 hours at night, and even when she wakes in the morning she doesn't appear to be fussed or annoyed by it. In fact she wakes up smiling, so it certainly must keep her dry for those 8 hours, which is all I want from a nappy. Also, I am now almost at the end of this pack and never once has her nappy leaked which is also a pretty important factor for a nappy!
So all in all, as long as a nappy keeps my daughter dry without any leaks and leaves her comfortable then this is all I want from a nappy. THe fact that these Simply Dry nappies are a cheaper version of the likes of Pampers Baby Dry or Active fit, suits me even better, and nappies that I would certainly buy again. Why spend more when the cheaper version does the same job?!
I think these nappies are great! My son is in reusable nappies during the day, but leaks at night whilst using these, therefore we wanted a cheap packet of nappies to see us through the night, long car journeys and for the odd emergency during the day.
I bought these from Tesco for about £7. I chose these over other brands because for every packet sold, they donate a tetanus vaccine to babies and children abroad in third world countries. They were also the cheapest of the Pampers brand.
I use these nappies for my baby at night, and have on occasion used them during the day. I can honestly say I have had no problems at all with them. OK, they do feel a little cheaper than the Active Fit and all the other Pampers nappies, but that is because they are! I think the fit is brilliant, and I have never encountered any leaks. My son does not get sore from using these, and if he was going to, I'm sure he would have by now as he wears them for about 6 hours at night. They don't smell when he wees in them, as I have found some other Pampers types do.
I like the design of the nappy; good old Sesame Street! As I have said previously, they fit really well, and the elasticated sides are not too tight or too loose; just right.
Aside from the fact that they are not environmentally friendly, I cannot find fault with these nappies.
These nappies are the cheaper Pampers nappies and they are cheaper for a reason. The nappies look cheaper than their other ones they are white with a small strip across the top with pictures on. They are quite soft to feel and are padded.
The main problem I have with these nappies is they tend to leak, this is especially a problem at nightime, the bedding gets wet. I have also noticed that the nappies tend to split at night when they get heavy which leaves small glue type dots everywhere and they are quite difficult to get off the baby. The first time this happened I was alarmed as I didn't know where they had come from however after looking online it appears other people have also had this problem.
These nappies are not reliable and I find they don't keep their shape at all in the changing bag and become squashed. They are cheaper, but they are a waste of money in my opinion I would always spend a little extra for a lot more quality.
My daughter has recently outgrown Pampers New Baby nappies the next choice available for her were Pampers Baby Dry of Pampers Simply Dry. I had read mixed reviews on Simply Dry but decided to try them for myself as they were a lot cheaper than the Baby Dry version. I bought size 3 for my daughter which go from 4-9kg which is 9-20lb, a Jumbo box cost £9 in Asda which contains 96 nappies. You can also get size 4 and 5 for the same price but you get slightly fewer nappies in the larger sizes.
Pampers advertise these nappies as having revolutionary new Dry Max technology with 20% less bulk
as well as super-stretchy sides which adjust as your baby moves. These nappies are said to be Pampers quality at a budget price.
When I took a nappy from the packet they looked the same as the New Baby nappies, they had the same soft feel. The nappies feature Sesame Street characters. The nappy fitted my daughter really well, the leg cuffs were extra stretchy and had a double cuff for extra protection. The tabs around the waist can be restuck too which is great if you have a wriggly baby. The waist also have extendable tabs to accomodate your growing baby as well as being stretchy to allow your baby to move in comfort.
I have been using these for about 3 weeks now. I haven't had any leaks, my daughter is breastfed so her poo's are runny but so far so good they have contained the messiest of poo's! They haven't irritated my daughters skin. I would definately buy these again, they offer Pampers protection at a reduced price, I may consider using the Active Fit when my daughter can crawl but for now these nappies do the job!
When it comes to nappies I have to say I like to give anything a go. When our son had outgrown his new baby nappies we needed to move onto midi nappies and there were so many to choose from but when I saw a large pack in Asda for just £4 I decided to try these first.
Pampers are a reputable brand of nappies so I was expecting these to be reliable and good value for money. I found that the simply dry range fell in line with own brand supermarket nappies and when I got home and opened the pack I noticed they were not as soft but still quite slimline.
The nappies themselves still have velcro tabs and stretch sides but not as stretchy as other variants of pampers nappies and I found that when I pulled the tabs to fasten they did pull off on the odd ocassion.
Using the nappies I found them to be fine there were no leakage issues but there was a strong odour as soon as our baby had gone to the toilet which we found difficult to mask. The nappies were bulky when filled and I went through a lot more of these compared to other brands/variants/
The simply dry range come in 3 sizes, 3,4,5.
I found these nappies were fine for use during the day but I do find that at night I prefer to use a more reliable nappy such as the baby dry or the active fit nappy as these bulk out very quickly and our son seemed to get a nappy rash each time these nappies were used.
The nappys did keep him dry but not for long periods of time and we found that every time we went out he had to be changed even if we were only out for a short shopping trip.
I have only purchased one pack of these nappies and I will not be purchasing them again as I think the supermarket own brands are much better than these the packaging makes them look like value priced nappies but really these do not offer value for money they are simply awful.
When I saw these nappies on an offer at my local supermarket that made them cheaper than the supermarkets own brand I thought i'd give them a try. Another bonus was that they are on the brands list that when you spend £10 you get £5 back in vouchers over the internet. Being Pampers I expected they would be a really good nappy.
The simply dry range comes in three sizes, 3, 4 and 5 which suits babies from about 9lbs to 55lbs. The advertising of these nappies is "trusted Pampers dryness at an affordable price" These nappies come in jumbo pack which have between 96 and 68 nappies for around £13, carry packs which have between 32 and 22 for £4.50 and economy packs which have between 60 and 44 for about £7.50.
These nappies seem quite thin and flimsy when taken from the pack, they go on the same as any other nappy although if you don't press the tabs down quite alot i've found they do slip loosening the nappy which obviously could cause some messy circumstances. When they are on properly they do absorb all my daughter produces and she doesn't feel wet after 12 hours which is good. Although absorbant when my daughter has a wee the nappy expands that far that it looks like she must have been in the nappy for hours as if the crystals used expand more than in other nappies.
I can't really believe that these are supposed to be a premium brand, they feel cheap and I am often checking to make sure the nappy is still sealed as my daughters at the age where she is wriggling around, once what I have is gone I won't be buying them again.
I believe i have tried every brand of disposable nappy on the market, ranging from Huggies and Pampers to the shops own brand. I tried the Simply dry range when my little boy was in size 3 nappies, expecting because they where pampers nappies they would be decent quality. Boy was i wrong!
* Cheap, give access to a decent brand at a smaller cost
*They leak easily, without sounding too disgusting every time my son did a 'poo' the nappy would leak. Also when he had a pee they often leaked too.
* Thin material
* You can feel the hard absorbent crystals through the material
* Plain Design
* Not much support between the thigh area of the nappy to avoid leakage
* Sticky tabs aren't that stretchy and often rip off
* Nor that cheap really when you compare the price to that of a big multipack box, for £10 i can go to stores like Asda or Netto and buy a big box of 100 nappies anyway in another decent brand.
As you may of figured out buy now i definitely wouldn't recommend these nappies, infact i wouldn't recommend any nappy in the Pampers range!
Ok- so the headline probably gives away how I feel about these nappies- but I will explain in a bit more detail.
I have always fluctuated between huggies and pampers nappies and tens to go for whatever is on offer at the supermarket. I don't think I'm particularly fussy and my daughter had never had a problem with either. For some reason I have never tried supermarket own brand (maybe I'm a nappy snob).
Anyway I was thrilled when pampers brought out this cheaper brand as I thought there's no way pampers will make these without using all the knowledge they have about decent nappies. Apparently I was wrong.
First of all, I personally find the orange packaging a bit off putting. I'm not sure why as they till have the requisite images of cute babies- but I do think that they scream cheap (and I used to be a nappy snob!)
However, my issue with these nappies is simply the fact that they don't work; the absorbancy is terrible and they leak everywhere. After my daughter's first night in simply dry I had to change and wash the bedding AND air the mattress because she was absolutely soaking. I put this down to some kind of coincidence and carried on using the nappies, but after a couple of days of her having wet patches on her trousers and tights and another night of soaked bedding I realised how much more frequently these nappies need changing if you want to keep your children comfortable and dry!
The other thing I found was that on two occasions when putting the nappy on I pulled the sticky tag off the nappy, making it unusable. I have never done this before with other nappies so am concluding that even the glue they use to stick the tags on is of poorer quality. If you include the ones you break, and the fact you have to change twice as often then they are probably not such good value- as you just use more!
I was so annoyed about the whole experience that I did actually complain to pampers who sent me a £4 voucher- which I DID NOT spend on baby dry.
I have used these nappies once since then- as they were all the shops had. I had to buy them in a size up from what my daughter usually has and to be honet they weren't as bad. So if you have no choice and you have to buy them then I would try to purchase a size bigger than you need.
