this are very good nappies

Mamatoboojunior Mon 24-Jun-13 17:04:37

I was testing the size 4 on my 7 month old.

1)I am a fan of pampers baby-dry nappies and have been since my son was born but I have recently started to use supermarket own brand nappies during the day just to keep the cost down. I will however continue to use them exclusively at night. Overall I think the baby-dry nappies are the most superior available on the market and my son seems very comfortable in them.

2)They excel for dryness and leakage protection.

3)I feel that for the way that I use them i.e. 1 per night, then I get value for money but, as above, I have had to start using own brand nappies during the day in order to keep my costs down.

4)Yes I would always recommend baby-dry nappies and most people I associate with use them already.

I tested the size 3 on my 7 month old.

Q1 I have always preferred Pampers Baby dry as nappy of choice for both of my children, but cheaper own brand nappies had tempted me away from Pampers. Testing them on my 7 month old I was suprised to find they felt so much softer and less plasticky feeling than other own brand nappies I was currently using. Much less rustling noise made as DS crawled too. Will definitley use them again.

Q2 Even after 12 hours of wear overnight the nappy still feels dry to the touch, good to know that DS is kept dry and comfortable all night, own brand nappies occassionally leaked, but no leakages so far with Pampers. The only leakage we have had is a runny poo, but not much can keep those ones in!

Q3 Yes I have to agree Pampers costs slightly more than other nappies, but I think they are worth it and don't feel I need to change DS so often as the nappy copes well containing the liquid. I always search around for the best offers and somewhere usually has Pampers on offer, very good price when on offer.

Q4 Yes would happily recommend Pampers Baby dry to others, my sister has been converted as she is so impressed with the quality and her opinion is that they smell much nicer!

Q1 What was your overall impression of Pampers Baby-Dry nappies? Would you use them again? If so, why? If not, why not?
I have used Pampers nappies for both of my children, so was previously using baby dry before testing the new Baby dry nappies.
Overall impression was good , my children have never had any leaks with Pampers - both the old style or the new ones.
One thing I would point out is that I felt the new style Baby Dry seemed to be a lot "fuller" in the morning - this may be due to the fact the new style nappy does seem thinner than the old style. Regardless of how full the nappy was, there were still no leaks which is great.

Q2 How did they compare with other nappies you've used in terms of dryness and leakage protection?
I can't really compare to other brands, as Pampers is the only one I have used.

Q3 We've included some info on how much Pampers Baby-Dry nappies cost below - do you think that they're good value for money or not? Why?
I do think Pampers are more expensive than most other brands, but their quality and the fact that they don't leak means I am happy to pay the extra.

Q4 If it came up in conversation, would you recommend Pampers Baby-Dry nappies to other parents? If so, why? If not, why not?
Yes, Pampers are the only nappy I have / would recommend.

Baileysagain Thu 20-Jun-13 23:05:03

Q1 what was your overall impression of Pampers Baby-Dry nappies? Would you use them again? If so why? If not, why not?

I thought they were excellent and now buy them all the time. I like the look and feel of them, they fit well and don't leak.

Q2 How did they compare with other nappies you've used in terms of dryness and leakage protection?

These were far superior to any other nappy I have ever tried for dryness and leakage.

Q3 we've included some info of how much Pampers Baby-Dry nappies cost below - do you think they are good value for money or not? Why?

They are more expensive but they are a better product and I use them day and night.

Q4 if it came up in conversation would you recommend Pampers Baby-Dry nappies to other parents? If so, why? If not, why not?

I would definitely recommend them, they are the first nappy I have used which actually keeps my son dry all night.

SpecialJK Thu 20-Jun-13 16:04:28

Q1 What was your overall impression of Pampers Baby-Dry nappies? Would you use them again? If so, why? If not, why not?

I like baby-dry. Soft feel and fit well. Also, they don't seem to cut into my LO down the sides of the legs which is great

Q2 How did they compare with other nappies you've used in terms of dryness and leakage protection?

Best for night-time nappy. Wouldn't consider using anything else for overnight that can absorb as much

Q3 We've included some info on how much Pampers Baby-Dry nappies cost below - do you think that they're good value for money or not? Why?

I think they are definitely more expensive, I wouldn't use for daytime use, but think it's worthwhile for a good night's sleep!

Q4 If it came up in conversation, would you recommend Pampers Baby-Dry nappies to other parents? If so, why? If not, why not?

I would recommend for night-time use

Ovens1980 Mon 17-Jun-13 16:28:14

Q1 What was your overall impression of Pampers Baby-Dry nappies? Would you use them again? If so, why? If not, why not?

I was very impressed with Pampers Baby-Dry nappies. I feel they are a perfect fit for my little man. I love the way they seem to hug his bum without being big and bulky in his trousers.

Q2 How did they compare with other nappies you've used in terms of dryness and leakage protection?

I have been through every nappie there is in order to find one that doesn't leak or wake up my baby in the night and Baby-Dry is the only one that does both. I have tried changing nappies but the twice i have done this I have had the same result, a crying baby through out the night which isn't good now I am back at work. They are also the only nappy i have found not to leak around the legs which is great in terms or changing outfits throughout the day.

Q3 We've included some info on how much Pampers Baby-Dry nappies cost below - do you think that they're good value for money or not? Why? I think they are great value and for this reason I buy the Giga pack. I know that way I wont run out.

Q4 If it came up in conversation, would you recommend Pampers Baby-Dry nappies to other parents? If so, why? If not, why not?

A few of my friends and now expecting and they only nappy I would and do recommend is Pampers. They are the best fit, clear indication when wet, no leaks and they keep my baby dry all night and he has slept through from 8 weeks.

Like I've said before i have tried most if not all nappies out there and baby-dry by far are the best. The only down side is they do have a funny smell when wet but that i can live with for all the other pros!

Dry, comfy leak free baby! one very happy mummy!

Hi forgot to add my baby girl is 8 1/2 months and was using size 4 shes big for her age

Kittyblueit Mon 17-Jun-13 09:23:52

Q1 I will always use Pampers babydry as I trust that they work and have never had a leak with these.

Q2 I think they are much better than other brands. I have had leask with others but none with these.

Q3 I do think they are good value for money within the nappy market place and they do work. However I so think they could be cheaper.

Q4 I would and do recommend these to my friends simply beacause they work.

With my first baby I started out thinking I would only use washable nappies, however by my third I am convinced that his skin is better off with these nappies.

frostsu Sun 16-Jun-13 21:09:43

Oh dear- I missed the question part..
Q1) what was my overall impression? Great nappy, kept my son dry all night, no leaks
Q2)no leaks
Q3) good value, cheaper nappies can leak and aren't worth if
Q4) would I recommend? Yes.

frostsu Sun 16-Jun-13 20:52:31

Good nappies. My baby rarely sleeps through the night as he is teething but the nappies are always contained and keep him dry all night. Worth paying more for.

Q1 What was your overall impression of Pampers Baby-Dry nappies? Would you use them again? If so, why? If not, why not? Yes definitely, they were very soft, thin compared to the Asda ones I usually use, and worked very well.

Q2 How did they compare with other nappies you've used in terms of dryness and leakage protection?
The best I've used - no leakage at all.

Q3 We've included some info on how much Pampers Baby-Dry nappies cost below - do you think that they're good value for money or not? Why?
They are good value for money because they're a good product, but it's still difficult to justify when supermarket ones do a good job and are significantly cheaper.

Q4 If it came up in conversation, would you recommend Pampers Baby-Dry nappies to other parents? If so, why? If not, why not? Yes definitely, for the above reasons.

Hi there! I tested out size 4 Pampers Baby-Dry nappies on my youngest 8month old DS. I have three DS's and the eldest two are 8 & 6 yrs old so it has been a while since I have had to think about nappies so its been good to assess how they have improved over the years!

Q1 What was your overall impression of Pampers Baby-Dry nappies?
Would you use them again? If so, why? If not, why not?
A1 - Overall, I think they are very good quality, nice and soft and not too bulky. Quality material is clearly used. My DS is a very big boy and whilst he probably could have done with a 4.5 size, they still kept him very dry at night. My only complaint is that on first inspection of some, and tbe way the are folded, sometimes the leg elastic stuck to the inside of the nappy which tore the lining. Also, on two occasions the sticky tab came off. Both of which rendered the nappy unusable which I found such a waste.

Q2 How did they compare with other nappies you've used in terms of dryness and leakage protection?
A2 - they compare very well and in fact, with my other DS's I used to prefer another very well known brand beginning with H!!! However, these have now improved to such a degree I now prefer Pampers for dryness guaranteed.

Q3 We've included some info on how much Pampers Baby-Dry nappies cost below - do you think that they're good value for money or not? Why?
A3 - They are actually quite expensive compared to other brands for the amount you get in the packs but the money off vouchers I get sent frequently ensure the costs are affordable.

Q4 If it came up in conversation, would you recommend Pampers Baby-Dry nappies to other parents? If so, why? If not, why not?
A4 - Yes I would recommend Pampers Baby Dry. I would just like to see the issues I outline above addressed.

Many thanks for allowing me to take part in the survey smile

DP76 Fri 14-Jun-13 20:30:30

Tested on DD 15months size 4 - they were good.

Q1 What was your overall impression of Pampers Baby-Dry nappies? Would you use them again? If so, why? If not, why not?

No leaks, reliable & soft.
Yes I would buy them again.

Q2 How did they compare with other nappies you've used in terms of dryness and leakage protection?

Best for leakage and protection.

Q3 We've included some info on how much Pampers Baby-Dry nappies cost below - do you think that they're good value for money or not? Why?

They are expensive compared to other brands, will buy when on offer.

Q4 If it came up in conversation, would you recommend Pampers Baby-Dry nappies to other parents? If so, why? If not, why not?

Yes, expensive, but worth paying more for something that works well.

kezjoben Fri 14-Jun-13 18:40:23

Pampers Baby-dry size 3 nappies are my favorite within the Pampers range although occasionally they do not keep my little boy dry for 12 hours a few mornings a week when I get him up he has leaked! no nappy I have tried helps! so maybe he just wees a lot!
I always buy pampers regardless of this and most of the time they are on offer at supermarkets and are good value for money.

I would give my honest opinion to other parents about leakage etc

Greedypiggy Fri 14-Jun-13 15:55:52

Q1 What was your overall impression of Pampers Baby-Dry nappies? Would you use them again? If so, why? If not, why not?
Overall impression was good, they were quite thin as opposed to other brands, so quite comfortable I reckon. Would definitely use them again.

Q2 How did they compare with other nappies you've used in terms of dryness and leakage protection?
They were wet to touch in the morning but there was no leakage overnight.

Q3 We've included some info on how much Pampers Baby-Dry nappies cost below - do you think that they're good value for money or not? Why?
I think they are a bit expensive as compared to some of the other brands, but would definitely buy them again as I found them quite good.

Q4 If it came up in conversation, would you recommend Pampers Baby-Dry nappies to other parents? If so, why? If not, why not?
I would definitely recommend them, as I am quite impressed in terms of thickness and leakage protection.

I used size 4 on my 21 month old.

Q1 What was your overall impression of Pampers Baby-Dry nappies? Would you use them again? If so, why? If not, why not?

Very good. I would use them again, certainly for during the night

Q2 How did they compare with other nappies you've used in terms of dryness and leakage protection?

I use Aldi nappies and I would say they compare more favourably. The dryness at night time (on waking) is much better with pampers than Aldi own

Q3 We've included some info on how much Pampers Baby-Dry nappies cost below - do you think that they're good value for money or not? Why?

I aim to pay no more than 0.10p a nappy. As such, they can be good value for money if buying in bulk and if you are not using as many nappies in a 24 hour period

Q4 If it came up in conversation, would you recommend Pampers Baby-Dry nappies to other parents? If so, why? If not, why not?

Yes I would recommend. In particular for night time dryness

Emmysmum2010 Fri 14-Jun-13 11:20:56

Overall I wasnt impressed. My son doesn't sleep through the night so I do a nappy change during tge night anyway however these didn't even last to the half night point we are used too. I wouldn't use again.

They were no where near as good as the usual brand I buy.

They are on the higher end of the price scale but for nappies that work I wouldn't mind paying that price.

Im afraid to say I couldn't recommend.

We tried size 4

fayummummy Fri 14-Jun-13 10:17:55

Q1 What was your overall impression of Pampers Baby-Dry nappies? Would you use them again? If so, why? If not, why not?
DS' nursery uses Baby-Dry whereas I use Active Fit so I wanted to see if there was any advantage to me using Baby-Dry instead. I also used Baby-Dry once or twice when he was newborn and I don't know if it's just a perception (false?) but they just still seem less generous than the Active Fit and DS always seems to have red weals from where they're tight against his legs (and he's not particularly chubby). They are slimline when unused, but so are the Active Fit. I particularly dislike the way that when they're full of wee they bulk up into a big lump in the front. The the Active Fit somehow seem to spread it more evenly across the nappy, if you see what I mean. So ultimately I wouldn't use them again but Pampers still have me as a customer!

Q2 How did they compare with other nappies you've used in terms of dryness and leakage protection?
We had no problems with leaks but I've always used Pampers Active Fit since the early day disasters with supermarket own brand nappies made me think buying anything else was a false economy. (Huggies also never seemed to work for boys and always leaked hugely).

Q3 We've included some info on how much Pampers Baby-Dry nappies cost below - do you think that they're good value for money or not? Why?
They are really expensive but see above re false economy. I remember being told that 10p per nappy was a good rule of thumb for newborn but I gave up on the economics after too many poo-stained vests. Ultimately with nappies you're over a barrel price-wise, it's a bit of a non-choice. Price and quality-wise I would buy Aldi nappies without hesitation if we had one close to us and the saving wasn't wiped out by the petrol cost (I've been told that they're made by Pampers anyway, not sure if that's true).

Q4 If it came up in conversation, would you recommend Pampers Baby-Dry nappies to other parents? If so, why? If not, why not?
No, because I still, on balance prefer the Active Fit ones. They just seem to fit DS better and because he's such a wriggler, there's no advantage for me in changing to Baby-Dry as the Active Fit have never leaked either. At the moment we're moving on to Easy-Up pants anyway because I haven't got half an hour to chase DS round the room with a conventional nappy!

Tried out pampers baby dry size 3 for my 3 month old son.

Q1 What was your overall impression of Pampers Baby-Dry nappies? Would you use them again? If so, why? If not, why not?
I thought they were good, definitely kept his bottom drier than huggies and tescos own. He's had allergic reactions to nappies in the past but these were fine.

Q2 How did they compare with other nappies you've used in terms of dryness and leakage protection?
Better then both huggies and tesco for dryness. Still relative frequent pooh leaks but no worse than huggies/ tesco.

Q3 We've included some info on how much Pampers Baby-Dry nappies cost below - do you think that they're good value for money or not? Why? Hard to say as number of nappies per pack not included in the info.

Q4 If it came up in conversation, would you recommend Pampers Baby-Dry nappies to other parents? If so, why? If not, why not?
Yes I would. I think they've improved his stubborn nappy rash and they seem more comfortable.

Can87 Thu 13-Jun-13 22:22:58

Oo and sorry i tested the size 3 on my little boy who is 3 1/2 months

Can87 Thu 13-Jun-13 22:19:36

Q1. I really liked these nappies, they are by far the best ones i have used for night time on my little boy. They don't quite last the full 12 hours but i would say they keep him dry for about 10 hours, which is far longer than any others we have tried.

Q2 As above they seem to keep my son dry and we have very few leakages, we may get the odd few if he sleeps longer than 10 hours but this doesn't generally happen at the moment.

Q3 These nappies arnt the cheapest, but you do get what you pay for. I now buy these for night use, but use a cheaper brand during the day when be is changed more often anyways. I would be more tempted to buy them to use all the time if they were slightly cheaper.

Q4 I would recommend these nappies, and have on a few occasions. The price puts me off buying them all of the time, but they are worth the money to insure no leaks through the night

natty1981 Thu 13-Jun-13 21:40:55

I tested the baby dry size 3 nappies on my 8 month old who weighs 15lbs

I really like these nappies, they are not bulky and feel soft. As a mum to a baby who is a tummy sleeper, I was having problems with other branded and supermarket own brand nappies leaking at the top, the baby dry have kept him leak free all night. I will definitely be buying them again just for the peace of mind that my baby will be dry overnight.

I think the price of the Baby Dry nappies are expensive, compared to the supermarket own brand nappies, but I tend to wait until they are on offer and then stock up on them. Inevitably though, if my baby stays dry and leak free overnight then I would be happy paying the full price of the nappies.

I would always recommend Pampers to other parents, I have used the New Baby, Baby Dry and Active Fit nappies and never had a problem with them and I've found that they fit really well and they are soft so don't leave red marks on his legs like some other brand nappies do.

Birdies Thu 13-Jun-13 21:37:42

My baby girl is 5 months. We tested the size 3 nappies.

Q1 What was your overall impression of Pampers Baby-Dry nappies? Would you use them again? If so, why? If not, why not?

Yes I am definitely buying them again. I liked how thin they felt compared to other types of nappies (both pampers and other brands)

Q2 How did they compare with other nappies you've used in terms of dryness and leakage protection?

Similar I think.

Q3 We've included some info on how much Pampers Baby-Dry nappies cost below - do you think that they're good value for money or not? Why?

Same answer as above - yes if use fewer nappies as more absorbent, save money on washing as fewer leaks

Q4 If it came up in conversation, would you recommend Pampers Baby-Dry nappies to other parents? If so, why? If not, why not?

I would, mainly because of the thinness compared to other brands. I feel like my baby has more freedom to move and kick her legs about.
