When I first had Thomas, we tried a variety of different nappies to see which were best for us. We wanted quick absorption of liquids, no leakage and a comfortable fit. After intensive testing, we discovered that Thomas got nappy rash in most brands apart from Pampers as the others did not soak the urine up quick enough. We have not looked back since. Thomas has been Pampers every day up until two months ago when we potty trained him. Daniel has been in Pampers since the day he was born too and I have not tried another nappy on him as I know Pampers are the best for us.
I knew Pampers nappies were good but I did not know how good until I took the #Britainsdriestnappy test. We were sent a pack of Active Fit nappies in size 3 + to review and do the test with. To do the test, I had to:
Pour 150ml (equivalent to 3 baby wee’s) of water onto the nappy in the middle where the baby bottom usually is
Wait 1 minute and 30 seconds
Then put a piece of kitchen roll on top and press gently. No wetness should appear on the kitchen roll. The nappy should have absorbed it all.
I then cut the nappy in half with scissors so I could see all the micro pearls inside that had absorbed the water.
I have always been impressed with Pampers and are now even more impressed than what I was before since seeing how the nappies actually work. I have about another two years worth of nappy purchasing ahead of me before Daniel is potty trained and I know I will keep on buying Pampers until that point.
Disclosure: I was sent a pack of nappies for the purposes of this test and review. All opinions are my own. I was not required to write a positive review.
