Overall impression thinner the other nappies and bit awkward to get on but once used to them quite simple to use
As I have never used a type of pull up before I was unsure of hoe my little girl would get on with their but she seems to prefer them to normal nappies I would deferently reccomend these to some abd I believe they are good value for money my little girl also liked the picture on the front

I tested size 5 on my 22 mth boy.

Its the 1st time i have tried pampers easy up pants.
He has no idea who dora & diego are! 'Cars' and tractors is what he is into at the moment.
Overall impression of these nappy's were good.
A lively boy needs a quick change so handy when I'm out and about.
He did have a leak on a couple of the nights and also on a car journey.
Great for introducing them to potty training. Could be a coincidence but he now tells me when he does something in his 'big boy pants'!!
Would recommend them to family & friends! A little pricey to use all the time but definitely worth having a pack handy at home for that last minute change when heading out the door.

Roxychik Tue 13-Aug-13 08:12:10

I used these on my son 18 mths.
Q1. I would use these again as we are just starting potty training & he can now pull them up & down.
Q2. Easy up pants were not easy at first for him but can do this now by himself. I feel they are fab for what I want while I am at home but when out & about at this stage I prefer pampers baby dry.
Q3. Never used any easy up pants before.
Q4. Would tell other parents about these as fab for potty training.
Q5. When my baby was born I used huggies nappys but they leaked so quickly changed to pampers baby dry & never had any leaks to date so I rate them the best in my book. Getting to the next stage of potty training I will be using these easy up pants as they are fab for my boy to pull up & down himself. He doesn't know who Dora is so maybe putting something generic on there like trains or tractors that don't date would be better. Value for money if they do the job good they are definitely worth the extra pennies.
Keep up the good work pampers!!

DS is 2 and a half and we used size 5.
Q1 What was your overall impression of Pampers Easy Up Pants? Would
you use them again? If so, why? If not, why not?
I liked them and DS liked them as I think he felt more grown up stepping into them rather than being put in a nappy.
Q2 Did you find Pampers Easy Up Pants convenient and easy to use or not?
Yes, easy to get on and off.
Q3 Have you ever used similarly designed nappies before with any of your
children? If so, how did Pampers Easy Up Pants compare?
We have used other pull ups a couple of times when we were round a friends house and we'd run out of nappies, she had some pull ups left over from her child, the Pampers felt softer and looked less bulky.
Q4 If it came up in conversation, would you recommend Pampers Easy Up Pants to other parents? If so, why? If not, why not?
Yes, I would tell them that DS liked them and they were worth a try, each child is different and nappies fit differently on them but well worth trying first.
Q5 We've included some info on how much Pampers Easy Up Pants cost
below - do you think that they're good value for money or not? Why?
I think they are a little more expensive than they should be but not completely unreasonable.

chlogmum1 Tue 13-Aug-13 16:03:25

ive been impressed with my pack of 'easy ups'. Easy to use and although they are a bit awkward to pull up, theyre absorbing is spot on as always with any pampers product!

badgerandbunny Tue 13-Aug-13 21:29:21

Q1 I've used these before and thought they were a great transition to potty training with my eldest so I was keen to use again. However this pack kept tearing at the sides when they weren't meant to so I'm now unsure whether to continue to use or try a different brand.
Q2, Q3, Q4 - same answer as 1 above

Q5 I find them a bit expensive but they have a value for potty training as you can reuse them if there's no little accidents. However if they keep ripping almost as soon as they're put on then they're far too expensive!!

LongTailedTit Tue 13-Aug-13 22:42:34

2 years old, size 4.

Q1 I liked the nice slim fit, DS seemed very comfortable in them and didn't try to push them down. No leaks of either kind, and no red marks from tight areas like DS sometimes gets from a wriggled-in nappy.
If we decide to use pull-ups, we will give these another go.
Would prefer not to have characters on them tho - got nagged for 'Dora pants', would rather they were plain or patterned.

Q2 Easy to put on, but a bit annoying to take off - need two hands to tear the sides away, so no hands free to pin toddler down!
Also, found it tricky to tie the nappy up with the sticky tab, would've been really annoying if out of the house.

Q3 No, this was our first Pull-Up usage.

Q4 Probably! Nice slim fit, keep the yuck inside, so did their job well.

Q5 Not cheap, but good value in that they do their job well - having not tried a cheaper version I don't know if they would perform as well.

Q1 What was your overall impression of Pampers Easy Up Pants? Would
you use them again? If so, why? If not, why not?

Yea they were a little tricky to get on to start with as I had never used that style before but once we got the hang of it it was all good smile

Q2 Did you find Pampers Easy Up Pants convenient and easy to use or not?

very much so, the style is easy to use but took a bit of mastering between me and my daughter to start with.

Q3 Have you ever used similarly designed nappies before with any of your
children? If so, how did Pampers Easy Up Pants compare?

No never this is a first.

Q4 If it came up in conversation, would you recommend Pampers Easy Up
Pants to other parents? If so, why? If not, why not?

yes I would, the price is ok, little high for me but still do able

Q5 We've included some info on how much Pampers Easy Up Pants cost
below - do you think that they're good value for money or not? Why?

not if your buying small packs no but worth it to buy a bigger pack defiantly.

Bexyleacook Wed 14-Aug-13 19:45:10

Q1 Overall I like the pants but I did find them bulky compared to huggies. They were good for nights tho.
Q2 The pants were each to use and fitted well.
Q3 I have tried Tesco own, Morrison's own and huggies pull ups. The pampers were good but bulky which was a shame.
Q4 I would recommend them
Q5 The pants are good value for money especially if you can get them on offer. The price is very similar to other makes.

17 month son, Size 5 nappies

Q1 What was your overall impression of Pampers Easy Up Pants? Would
you use them again? If so, why? If not, why not?
Really liked them. Easy to put on and not bulky, so son can walk well with it on.

Q2 Did you find Pampers Easy Up Pants convenient and easy to use or not?
Yes really great to use. Son won't keep still for nappy changes at all, so much easier to get him to do it all stood up with these nappies.

Q3 Have you ever used similarly designed nappies before with any of your
children? If so, how did Pampers Easy Up Pants compare?
Have used other supermarket own brand pull-ups. Pampers are far nicer all round really, and work a lot better.

Q4 If it came up in conversation, would you recommend Pampers Easy Up
Pants to other parents? If so, why? If not, why not?
If it came up in conversation then yes. Would just explain how good I have found them.

Q5 We've included some info on how much Pampers Easy Up Pants cost
below - do you think that they're good value for money or not? Why?
Yes definitely. I had been drawn to the supermarket own brand pull ups previous because they are cheaper, but actually I get through less pamper easy up pants because they are so much nicer.

ninaOs Sat 17-Aug-13 14:21:55

21 month son, Size 5 nappies

Q1 What was your overall impression of Pampers Easy Up Pants? Would
you use them again? If so, why? If not, why not?
I liked them. Easy to put on, my son can walk well with it on.

Q2 Did you find Pampers Easy Up Pants convenient and easy to use or not?
Yes really great to use. You use them like pant, gut to use baby to pants.

Q3 Have you ever used similarly designed nappies before with any of your
children? If so, how did Pampers Easy Up Pants compare?
Have used other supermarket own brand pull-ups and huggies. Pampers are trusted mark for me and no leaking.

Q4 If it came up in conversation, would you recommend Pampers Easy Up
Pants to other parents? If so, why? If not, why not?
if they thing to start potty straining they are great. They are look nice an no leaking- most important.

Q5 We've included some info on how much Pampers Easy Up Pants cost
below - do you think that they're good value for money or not? Why?
Yes definitely.

northerngoldilocks Sun 18-Aug-13 21:05:36

I used these on my son who is 27 months. We tried pampers size 5.

Q1 What was your overall impression of Pampers Easy Up Pants? Would
you use them again? If so, why? If not, why not?
Overall these pants were pretty good. I wouldn't use them again unless they were significantly reduced on special offer (see comments below on pricing)
Q2 Did you find Pampers Easy Up Pants convenient and easy to use or not?
Pull ups generally seem too hard for toddlers to pull up and down on their own and pampers were no exception to this. The supermarket own brands we used had velcro on them and these were easier to take off for wees (potty training) than others
Q3 Have you ever used similarly designed nappies before with any of your
children? If so, how did Pampers Easy Up Pants compare?
Similar performance. Pampers are the only ones with cartoon characters but as my son has no idea who they are they're not a selling point.

Q4 If it came up in conversation, would you recommend Pampers Easy Up
Pants to other parents? If so, why? If not, why not?
no - i don't believe they're more useful than nappies and theyre' more expensive.
Q5 We've included some info on how much Pampers Easy Up Pants cost
below - do you think that they're good value for money or not? Why?

Definitely not good value for money at more than twice the cost of supermarket own brand ones. Can't really work out what you get for the extra cash.

lindsey3uk Mon 19-Aug-13 20:24:43

We tested size 6 easy ups for my 2 1/2 year old son who has only just started potty training due to issues with constipation which have delayed us trying to potty train him.

Q1 What was your overall impression of Pampers Easy Up Pants? Would
you use them again? If so, why? If not, why not?

I LOVED THEM AND SO DIS MY SON, THEY WERE EASY TO USE AND KEPT HIM DRY BUT ALSO ENCOURAGED HIM TO TELL ME WHEN HE NEEDED TO GO. I SAW SUCH A DIFFERENCE IN HIM WHILST WEARING THESE NAPPIES. I HAVE ALREADY BROUGHT MORE.

Q2 Did you find Pampers Easy Up Pants convenient and easy to use or not?

I FOUND THEM EASY TO USE ALTHOUGH THEY COULD DO WITH BEING A BIT STRONGER AS THE SIDES RIP REALLY EASY WHILST TRYING TO VET THEM ON A 2 YR OLD WHO IS TRYING TO GET AWAY.

Q3 Have you ever used similarly designed nappies before with any of your
children? If so, how did Pampers Easy Up Pants compare?

I HAVE NEVER USED ANU BEFORE

Q4 If it came up in conversation, would you recommend Pampers Easy Up
Pants to other parents? If so, why? If not, why not?

ABSOLUTELY BECAUSE I THINK THEY ARE DESIGNED BRILLIANTLY AND ANYONE THINKING ABOUT POTTY TRAINING SHOULD TRY THEM.

Q5 We've included some info on how much Pampers Easy Up Pants cost
below - do you think that they're good value for money or not? Why?

WHILST I DID REALLY LIKE THE NAPPIES I THINK THEY ARE QUITE EXPENSIVE. OF COURSE YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR AND I DO THINK THEY ARE WORTH IT BUT MAY BE UNAFFORDABLE FOR SOME PEOPLE.

Pants to other parents? If so, why? If not, why not?
Yes - good for night time as high absorbency compared to huggies.

Q5 We've included some info on how much Pampers Easy Up Pants cost
below - do you think that they're good value for money or not? Why?
a little expensive when not on offer. best to wait for Boots or Tesco 3 for 2 offers.

Q5 We've included some info on how much Pampers Easy Up Pants cost
below - do you think that they're good value for money or not? Why?
I think all nappies are overpriced, but I'd rather pay a little bit more for good quality than have a grumpy uncomfortable toddler with nappy rash.

sorry, DS age 2, size 6 nappies blush

*Q1 What was your overall impression of Pampers Easy Up Pants? Would
you use them again? If so, why? If not, why not?*

When they arrived I was impressed, however they where far too big for my ds. I tried them today and they do fit better. Although it was left on long enough to see how they are for a few hours. When my ds is older I may consider using them however, I didn't like the 'design' on them.

Q2 Did you find Pampers Easy Up Pants convenient and easy to use or not?

With a very active ds it can sometimes be hard to change nappies, however with these nappies it was very quick to put them on. However when taking them off I found the sticky tape at the back to clse them a bit useless.

Q3 Have you ever used similarly designed nappies before with any of your children? If so, how did Pampers Easy Up Pants compare?

No I have never used pull up nappies on my ds before.

Q4 If it came up in conversation, would you recommend Pampers Easy Up Pants to other parents? If so, why? If not, why not?

Yes I think I would recommend these nappies, from my limited usage (no my ds) I have no complaints on the nappies.

*Q5 We've included some info on how much Pampers Easy Up Pants cost
below - do you think that they're good value for money or not? Why?*

No, I really don't think pampers are good value or money. I usually use a supermarket own brand as they are cost effective. When pampers are on offer I do sometimes buy them however its not too often that they can beat supermarket own brand prices.

cherrycherry41 Fri 23-Aug-13 21:33:01

DD is 11 months, we tried the size 4.
Q1 What was your overall impression of Pampers Easy Up Pants? Would
you use them again? If so, why? If not, why not?
I would use them again when DD begins to potty train and can put them on herself. I found them small in size and not great for poo's but until DD can control her bowels i dont think we will be using these.

Q2 Did you find Pampers Easy Up Pants convenient and easy to use or not?
They were easy to put on as DD is very wriggly and likes to stand. Getting them off was a bit of faff especially when she had had a poo.

Q3 Have you ever used similarly designed nappies before with any of your
children? If so, how did Pampers Easy Up Pants compare?
No

Q4 If it came up in conversation, would you recommend Pampers Easy Up
Pants to other parents? If so, why? If not, why not?
To parents potty training i would but otherwise no, i dont see much point.

Q5 We've included some info on how much Pampers Easy Up Pants cost
below - do you think that they're good value for money or not? Why?
Very expensive in my opinion but i suppose when potty training children can mix it up between wearing pant and pull ups so you wouldnt go through loads a day.

Belmo Sat 24-Aug-13 21:53:58

DD 22 months tried size 5.

*Q1 What was your overall impression of Pampers Easy Up Pants? Would
you use them again? If so, why? If not, why not?*

Overall I thought they were great quality, reliable but a faff to use. Found them a bit awkward to pull up - fit DD perfectly when on but she has very fat thighs and hates standing still so getting them on was a pain, and need to lie down to change a poo so prefer nappies. Wouldn't use them again soon but I can imagine they are useful at night with a potty trained child so may reconsider.

Q2 Did you find Pampers Easy Up Pants convenient and easy to use or not?

As above, found them a complete hassle tbh, but that may be more the fault of the toddler than the nappy.

*Q3 Have you ever used similarly designed nappies before with any of your
children? If so, how did Pampers Easy Up Pants compare?*

I once bought Sainburys pull-ups by accident and hated them, Pampers definitely better quality.

*Q4 If it came up in conversation, would you recommend Pampers Easy Up
Pants to other parents? If so, why? If not, why not?*

I would - I thought they were comfy, nice and slim, went 12 hours overnight with no leaks.

*Q5 We've included some info on how much Pampers Easy Up Pants cost
below - do you think that they're good value for money or not? Why?*

I don't think they are terrible value for money but its alot more than we pay for nappies at the moment (asda).

talesfromastayathomemum Tue 27-Aug-13 14:00:32

Q1 What was your overall impression of Pampers Easy Up Pants? Would
you use them again? If so, why? If not, why not?

I would not use Easy up pants again as I feel that they confused my son, he just thought they were nappies

Q2 Did you find Pampers Easy Up Pants convenient and easy to use or not?

Changing a messy number 2 was not so easy using Easy Up Pants

Q3 Have you ever used similarly designed nappies before with any of your
children? If so, how did Pampers Easy Up Pants compare?

I have never used this type of product before

Q4 If it came up in conversation, would you recommend Pampers Easy Up
Pants to other parents? If so, why? If not, why not?

I would not recommend them as I feel they slow down the potty training process and confuse the child

Q5 We've included some info on how much Pampers Easy Up Pants cost
below - do you think that they're good value for money or not? Why?

They seem to be a similar price to other pampers products but compared to supermarkets own brand nappies they are much more expensive

I did introduce the idea to my son of Easy Up Pants and tried them on for a few days however he did not understand the difference between those and normal nappies and did his business in them anyway. We also went out in them one day and he had filled the pants up in just a few hours so much that they fell down and took his trousers with them(much to the amusement of DH and I). In the end I potty trained my two year old son in 2/3 days without the use of Easy Up Pants, we just spent the first day or two barricaded in the kitchen with lots to drink and kept him naked from the waist down, by the end of that week he was dry at night and we managed a full day trip out without accident.

The nappies are great to encourage potty training whilst giving the assurance of a nappy. Would certainly recommend them to mums.
