I tried size 3 for my 6mo DD - in retrospect, I think she had a growth spurt and went up a size just about when I signed up!

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

Nice and soft, still very slim for the extra absorbency, sweet designs. They definitely are the most absorbent nappy I've found - they didn't keep DD dry for the 12 hours but I think that's because she feeds more at night than in the day confused and so wees a lot at night as a result. Even taking that into account, the Pampers kept her dry for 8 hours or more. I will be buying them, so I'll try the size 4s and see if that helps. When she leaked (because the nappy was soaked) it was at the leg.

I do find the smell of Pampers quite odd though - sort of fishy. It reminds me of all the chemicals in there, which I find a bit alarming. try to give DD lots of no nappy time in the day and would like to see the big disposable brands raising awareness of how beneficial this is.

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

The most absorbent I've found, definitely. As with all nappies, once they're soaked, the baby's skin feels wet.

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?

As far as I can see, Pampers are about 25% more expensive than the supermarket alternative, but I use probably 1/3 to a half as many. So on balance, yes, good value based on the choice I have. We don't live near an Aldi, and I hear that their much cheaper nappies perform really well. If we did, I would definitely try those!

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 them, because from the beginning with DD I've been an advocate of not changing her in the night unless she's pooed or is very wet. A dry disposable is the best way to disturb your LO as little as possible.

rootypig Tue 07-May-13 13:46:05

oh - not that you asked! - I'm not keen on the tagline "golden sleep". I find it a bit odd, because it's reminiscent of golden shower! confused

I tried newborn size 3 on my 3 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?

Can't really fault them. My baby has never had any sort of nappy rash and I don't use cream. Okay so occasionally explosive poos do leave but I'm not sure anything would keep those in!! Yes I'll use them again as although I've not tried many other brands, I think if it ain't broke then don't fix it!

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

As mentioned above some explosive poos to do leak at the back but I'm not one for doing nappies up really tight, and nothing else I've doing keeps the worst poos in place either. Never had wet leakage with my baby.

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?

In comparison to some own brand names, ie supermarket own, they are expensive but I always buy them when they are on offer and they are such an essential part of daily life with a baby it's the quality that's most important.

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.

Marking my place as I got mine this morning.

MrsDisneyPrincess Tue 07-May-13 13:57:37

I tried size 3 nappies. These compared well to the other brands I have used in the past and kept my son dry through the night.

I would recommend them to others and would use them again although I would shop around for offers.

nikki121985 Tue 07-May-13 14:04:02

Hi, i sampled baby dry size 3 on my 20 week old son

Q1. Overall i found that the Pampers were a snug fit on my son, not as bulky as some other brands, they seem to be the only major brand nappies that i can find that do not leak around the hips. I have found that they keep my little boy dry through the night therefore not needing a nappy change at midnight, i did find however that with leaving him in nappies overnight he did experience a rash around his groin although over the course of the day this seems to resolve itself.

Q2. I did find that the pampers do keep my little boy much dryer that other nappies, he did not experience the leaking first thing in the morning around his hip.

Q3. For the amount of nappies you get in a pack i do find pampers quite expensive compared to other nappies, maybe if there were a few more in a pack then i would rate them better on pack size, however for protection i find that they are excellent value for money.

Q4. I would definitely recommend pampers to a friend, I already have on social networking sites.

placemarking as we've been using them over the weekend but DP has done the morning nappy change when he's been off work smile

Marking place, DD's arrived this morning.

emmavikki Tue 07-May-13 14:23:01

My Daughter is 17 months and I tested size 4.

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

Overall the nappies were great, really impressed with the absorbency they kept her dry all night. They fit great. My daughter can be a struggler at nappy changes and have found that some brands rip easily making the nappy unusable, this has not happened with Pampers.

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

Because of the absorbency and good fit there has been no leakage as I have found with some other brands. Also there do not cause her any discomfort or redness because they keep all the wet locked away.

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 very good value, as the quality is much better than other brands.

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 these nappies, I have tried most brands for my 3 children, but always come back to Pampers for the quality and reliability.

BAUagent Tue 07-May-13 14:27:09

I used size 3 on my 7 month old daughter.

Q1
I found the nappies to be slim line and pretty, I'm sure my dd appreciated this smile I do think they are the best that I've found to use with dd - they are good quality and very reliable and I would definitely use them again.

Q2
The nappies very rarely leak, and when they do it tends to be due to positioning i.e. out of the leg. They last for a long time, tend to keep dd dry and comfortable through the night. In the morning she does tend to be quite wet, but the fact she sleeps through indicates that she doesn't feel too uncomfortable so the absorption is clearly good.

Q3
They are pricey - but I tend to think they are better quality than other brands. I also feel that I use less pampers than other lower quality brands that have less absorption/odour control.

Q4
Yes, I would, and I have done.

Marking place after receiving the nappies and no email.

I tried size 3 for my 6 month old daughter.

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

I found them to be a good fit with plenty of stretch to them. I would use them again because they offered very good protection for my baby.

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

They coped really well with leaks- I don't think we've had any! They kept my baby dry all night and she seemed comfortable in them for long periods of time.

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, they seem costly at first glance but I didn't need to change my baby as much therefore the pack lasted me longer.

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 because they are good value for money and keep baby dry for long periods of time.

joloucam Tue 07-May-13 14:39:36

Having tested the pampers baby dry nappies I feel they're great compared to Huggies and supermarket own brands! The 12 hour dry night promise is true and even after a full nights sleep my daughter is still relatively dry in the morning.
I will be moving to these nappies permanently after using pampers new baby for 7 months and would recommend them to friends if they asked my opinion. All in all a great nappy, slightly pricier than own brands but definitely worth the extra money!

jasmine31 Tue 07-May-13 14:43:15

I tried these nappies with my daughter who is 8 months old (size 4).

Q1 I thought Pamper's baby-dry were very good and will continue to use them. They seem to keep moisture away from the skin very well and my baby stays comfortable during the night.

Q2 Pamper's Baby-Dry keeps my baby drier for longer and we very rarely have any leaks (only when she sleeps for over 12 hours at night.)

Q3 The nappies do seem expensive compared to other brands but I feel it is worth the money to have a dry, happy baby plus less washing to do as fewer leaks onto clothing.

Q4 Yes I would recommend Pampers Baby-Dry

CabbageLooking Tue 07-May-13 14:46:09

Q1 What was your overall impression of Pampers Baby-Dry nappies? Would you use them again? If so, why? If not, why not?
Overall - a good nappy. No leakage and feels like it is probably pretty comfy. On one occasion found that the tabs wouldn't unstick and that led to a ripped and thus unuseable nappy but this was only once. It may be complete coincidence, but since using the Baby Dry nappies, my DS has had mild nappy rash for the first time. This may not have anything to do with the nappies but is worth noting.

Q2 How did they compare with other nappies you've used in terms of dryness and leakage protection?
Seemed to hold liquids well; a couple of times poo did escape slightly out of the side which may have been more to do with me not putting it on properly (I have a very wriggly baby). Generally I use Boots own brand which are also fine and I haven't found them to leak either.

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?
While the price seems ok I am generally seduced by offers so while I wouldn't say I will not buy them again, I would be more likely to buy them if they were reduced or in a two-for-one deal.

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, seem comfy enough but tags can be a bit sticky. However they stay in place well despite my very active DS doing his best to wriggle out of them!

shaktar Tue 07-May-13 14:48:48

I tried these for my 10 month old daughter -size 4.

I thought they were really great quality and kept my little one dry all night, however they did have a v weird chemical smell which I got used to but thought was a little off putting.

I would definitely use them again but it is hard to justify the cost unless on offer - whilst they are undeniably better quality than supermarket own, I'm not sure they are that much better in order to justify paying full price.

Price withstanding, I would definitely recommend to others though

Thurlow Tue 07-May-13 14:58:41

Q1
They feel soft and comfortable compared to the brand we regularly use. The side tab did pull off once, when I was trying to tug it in to place underneath a wriggly toddler, which I was surprised by. They hold in the pee smell well. I would use them again if DD started to get nappy rash during the night, as they seem softer and more absorbant that our current brand; however, as our current brand aren't causing any problems I can't see the need to pay more.

Q2
Very dry, no leakage at all, good fit around the waist and legs. Better than some 'top' brands we have used before, but the fit is about the same as our current brand.

Q3
They are value for money if you are having problems with nighttime leaking, nappy rash etc - but they're not if you aren't having problems. Without any special offers on they are still about 8p a nappy more expensive than our current brand, which would work out as roughly £2.50-£3 a week more expensive. That's over £100 a year. Obviously I'd pay that if I needed to, but not just for a brand name.

Q4
I'd recommend them over other big name brands as they seem better, and I'd recommend them to anyone who said they were struggling to find a very absorbant nappy. I would also be worried that own brand nappies might be more irritating for very small babies. But for older babies and toddlers, I don't think I would recommend them. I'd be recommending the own brand we use.

Jamescatherine Tue 07-May-13 15:00:51

I have been using pampers baby dry since my little one was 4 and a half months.
I was using another brand but which were fine when baby was s
Waking for night time feeds. The problem started when James started to sleep the full night. As a first time mother I used to wake a few times a night and check in on him but was finding I would have to wake him because his baby grow would be damp from
Wee.

Then I started using baby dry and no problems. Baby sleeps 8 to 7 and is dry as a bone when he wakes. I have to say they are brilliant

While they are a little more expensive then other brands knowing that your baby is dry for the full night is brilliant

I would definitely recommend them to a friend

MadMonkeys Tue 07-May-13 15:00:54

DD2 is 7mo, 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?

Great, yes I would use again, no leaks all night.

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

Excellent, only ones that don't leak through the night.

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?

Yes, but mainly because I buy them when they are on offer and comparable in price with supermarkets own brand.

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, because they really do work for 12 hours overnight.

Radrotee Tue 07-May-13 15:07:34

I have tried size 3 pampers baby-dry on my 5 months old baby

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

They are lovely, thin and slim, nice designs, the absorbency was great, it kept her dry through the 8 hours night sleep, she wakes up for a feed, so i change her by then. Haven't kept it on her 12 hours though!

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

They hold the wee pretty well, no leakage at all. It only leaked poop once from the side, but most probably it was me not putting it perfectly right. I only tried huggies couple of times, it was Ok. But i like the pampers better, their designs, their smell, their soft texture on baby skin. But in term of dryness and leakage they are pretty the same

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 especially when they are on offer on most supermarkets, they sometimes go into around 0.1 for a nappy!

Q4

Yeah i would definitely recommend. They are RELIABLE

TheBakeryQueen Tue 07-May-13 15:15:39

I tested the size 4 nappies on my 8 month old and I have to say, I was very impressed with the results.

They seem thinner & softer, more flexible, than the supermarket brand that I usually use.

My 8mth old is still feeding up to 3 times during the night and it's hit & miss as to whether the supermarket brand I currently use (asda) leaks or not. I was impressed that with the pampers baby dry there was no leakage!

I would recommend them for the reasons above.

I would say that they are decent value for money but supermarket brands quite a bit cheaper.

I'd buy them but just use them for overnight as cheaper brands fine for during the day.

I would recommend them as a good, soft, non leaky nappy smile

Nervousfirsttimer Tue 07-May-13 15:16:28

1) I was impressed with them, kept my 9 month old leak free so in terms of quality, happy to use again

2) they seemed to keep all the wetness away from my baby's skin - no wake ups or leaks but he never poops overnight so can only comment on wee holding!

3)they are expensive compared to other brands

4)happy to recommend as a quality product, not a cheap option though!

Nervousfirsttimer Tue 07-May-13 15:16:51

Oh a size 4 tried

nyssa87 Tue 07-May-13 15:45:13

used on a baby boy 4 month size 3

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

I liked them a lot, they were very thin and easy to use.

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

These nappies by far are the most absorbent nappy i have tried and i have tried a LOT!!!!

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?

yes pampers can be expensive but i think you use less in the long run.

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.

Jacqueline13 Tue 07-May-13 16:01:19

I have tested the Size 3 nappies on my gorgeous little 7 month old daughter.

My overall impression was that they are fabulous...I have been using them for a while, having chosen them over other brands and supermarket brands too.

They are softer and more flexible than other ones and they don't seem as bulky when they are dry or wet. I use them as night-time nappies (and use Active-fit during the day). This has been great as on some occasions my little girl decides it's OK for mummy to have a rest and she'll sleep through the night. With these nappies I know that she'll be comfortable all night and I won't be covering her in rash cream all the next day!

I have had some leakages...of the number two variety...but to be fair I don't think anything would have kept it in! We are weaning and she loves trying lots of different things...she just adores dried apricots...but they have an adverse effect in the nappy department! ;)
But, for the main part we never have any other leakages, which we have had with other brands.

I think they are great value for money as they do exactly what they say they will...keep her dry for 12 hours and keep the moisture locked away from her skin. We have had no problems, touch wood, with nappy rash...except when she's been teething, but even then it's minimal and I really feel that Pampers is helping keep it so.

Of course it would be great if they were cheaper...but then it's a price I'm willing to pay to keep her bottom soft and comfortable.

I would definitely recommend them to other parents...I'm not even sure I'd wait for it to come up in conversation! ;)

MrsMarigold Tue 07-May-13 16:29:50

I tested size 3 for my seven and a half month daughter.

Q1
Yes, I will use them all the time now. I like them because they are very thin and soft and don't feel plasticky but I'm not so keen on the slightly chemical smell and her bottom still got a little red (she is very prone to nappy rash). Although I do like the eco-credentials of Naty's and they smell better

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

They kept her skin dry through the night and there was no leakage I prefer them to other nappies I recently got some supermarket own brand and Boots nappies which left her very damp.

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?
Yes, they are thinner and kept her drier.

Q4 Yes I would recommend them because they are good and widely available.

suty1 Tue 07-May-13 16:33:22

Used size 4 for 5 month old. I use real nappies during the day but a disposable at night as he sleeps 12hrs and is a heavy wetter! I currently use aldi own nappies. Have dry nights with both nappies, pampers do seem dryer to the touch so presumably dryer on babies bum. They do have a strange smell, no rashes I don't use cream. Will buy if on offer and would recommend to people. The only other point is they seem to gather alot and hang down around groin area presume from weight of full nappy.

Danniq Tue 07-May-13 16:34:50

I tested the size 4 nappies on my 7 month old.

The nappies were absoulty brilliant! I would definatly use them again. It kept him try through 8 hours sleep.

They are much better than all other nappies that i have tried, other nappies were not as flexible, dry or as soft.

I think pampers are brilliant value for nappies, they may not be as cheap as the supermarket brands, but i prefer spend that extra money on a brand i turst and no will keep my baby comfortable and dry.

I would recommend pampers to other parents, i cannot fault them.

Holfin Tue 07-May-13 16:43:52

Testing Size 3 on my 7 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?
Yes, easy to put on baby and he seems to find them comfortable. Nice unobtrusive design and stay fastened well.

Q2 How did they compare with other nappies you've used in terms of dryness and leakage protection?
They are the best in terms of leakage by some way. I find dryness on a par with most other brands.

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? Yes - although they are a bit more expensive than some other brands I think they are worth it as baby makes less washing through less leakages.

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 - very happy with Pampers

bondette Tue 07-May-13 16:54:22

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 quite good, my little girl didn't leek at all but she did av some miner nappy rash. Over all tho I found them good. 9/10

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

I found them good my little girl didn't leek at all aprt from when he did a big number 2 it come up her back and out the nappy tht way but I find with her all nappys r the same.

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?

The prize is OK, its not to much BUT could do with being a little cheeper.

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

Nicknamefail Tue 07-May-13 16:54:39

Q1
I liked them. No leaks- the most important thing! They were easy to put on and not bulky.

Q2
They leak less than other brands. Overnight my daughter has defeated most other brands. The level if dryness is good.

Q3
Slightly more expensive but I would pay this to avoid washing the cot sheets everyday

Q4
I would recommend due to the lack of leaks.

gabrychasc Tue 07-May-13 16:58:05

Pampers Baby-Dry diapers are great, son Pucia is suchutka and without irritation, super-absorbent, recommend to all baby.

Caitycat Tue 07-May-13 17:20:00

DD is 8 months old and we tried size 4

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

I really liked them, they are slim and more absorbant than any other I have tried. DD has had a tummy upset so presented a range of different fillings and they have dealt with almost all, a bit of leakage around the legs with particularly explosive diarrhoea but otherwise very good. DD did get nappy rash in them but I think this was due to the illness rather than the nappies as it cleared up and she is still using them without any recurrence.

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

I have only tried pampers and boots before, they are much better than both pampers activefit and boots own brand, I use them during the day as well as at night as I haven't found anything else that really keeps her dry.

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 more expensive than many other types but I am prepared to pay more for something that really keeps her dry

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, the only nappies that really keep her dry

Lora1982 Tue 07-May-13 17:21:51

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

very plasticy feeling on the outside, i like the design i.e the extra frills to keep in leaks and i like the pattern on the nappies themselves. but the smell in the morning is disgusting, really strong smell of wee/chemicals. after these have gone i wont be buying them to use over night. I mainly use reuseable nappies, so i only use disposables at night or out on long journeys. i may buy them if i need to for daytime use but not overnight, just because of that smell. reminds me of poor uncared for babies who are left in their nappies for hours on end.

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

they were excellent, no leaks. I would say the performed as well as my current favourites.. mamia from Aldi

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?

the pricing is good when i look at the list here, but when next to others in a supermarket they are more expensive and i would only purchase with a coupon or if they were 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?

possibly not, because of the smell. the big selling point for these disposables is the 12 hour night use thing, but I'd rather not leave my baby in it because the smell makes me feel like he's festering in wee. he may well be dry for those 12 hours but he smells, the poor soul!

oops! 17wks (4 months) size 3midi.

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

very plasticy feeling on the outside, i like the design i.e the extra frills to keep in leaks and i like the pattern on the nappies themselves. but the smell in the morning is disgusting, really strong smell of wee/chemicals. after these have gone i wont be buying them to use over night. I mainly use reuseable nappies, so i only use disposables at night or out on long journeys. i may buy them if i need to for daytime use but not overnight, just because of that smell. reminds me of poor uncared for babies who are left in their nappies for hours on end.

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

they were excellent, no leaks. I would say the performed as well as my current favourites.. mamia from Aldi

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?

the pricing is good when i look at the list here, but when next to others in a supermarket they are more expensive and i would only purchase with a coupon or if they were 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?

When I signed up for the trial pack we were using Pampers Active fits overnight but have since moved to cloth full time. We have used the trial pack and were impressed with the absorbancy, shape and comfort of them. We won't be using them again but it was nice to see the difference between the Active Fits and Baby-Dry. I think overall we do prefer the Active fits though so if we go back to disposables we'll prob stick with the Active Fits

They worked very well overnight and we didn't have to change my little boy until morning. We luckily had no leaks 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?

I think that the Baby-Dry nappies are excellent value for money but like most mums out there I wouldn't pay those prices, instead I'd stock up during baby events when they are on sale and just leave them in my garage until they fit ;)

If it came up in conversation I defiantly would recommend Pampers Baby-Dry nappies. The Pampers brand no matter which type of nappy are a very reliable brand that I have got on very well with since having my little boy.

Thank you to the MNHQ for picking me to review this product, which I received for free. This review is in my own words and reflects my true opinion.

I'm testing the size 3 on my 10 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?
Nice soft, non-bulky nappy. Good fit, although as with all Pampers nappies, they gape at the back. The flexi tab makes nappy changes easier and the extra attachment flap also helps to prevent chafing from the sticky tab - a great design feature.
I always use Pampers but prefer Active Fit as I find them a little softer.

Q2 How did they compare with other nappies you've used in terms of dryness and leakage protection?
My baby had a growth spurt between ordering the nappies and receiving them so size 3 was a little too small. This is why I think I had 3 leakages (wee only), as I didn't secure the nappy too tightly. Otherwise the nappy kept my baby nice and dry, and moisture was locked away after 8-10 hours 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?
They are good value for money, particularly when bought on offer, and when one considers how soft they are compared to cheaper brands.

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 this product, although Pampers Active fit is still my first choice as they are a little softer.

CaptainHetty Tue 07-May-13 17:39:29

My daughter is 7 months, we're testing Size 4 nappies.

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

We've used them before, and will continue to do so. I started our daughter in reusable nappies with every intention of carrying on until potty training; but I couldn't find a brand or type that suited her at all. We tried a supermarket own brand and were greeted with poonamis every.single.morning. Since moving to Simply Dry and now Baby Dry, we've only had one or two leakage issues. They're also considerably less bulky than some others and look more comfortable on her.

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

They're the best I've tried. We've not had any night-time leaks, and as I said above, one or two of the stinky variety; and those were mostly because she was sat in a bumbo when she did her business.

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?

Considering I'm washing considerably less clothes and ruining less vests since changing, I'd say the extra you pay for Pampers over supermarket own brands make the price worth it.

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 relay my experiences with them and suggest they're worth a try, yes.

delasi Tue 07-May-13 17:39:34

Q1 What was your overall impression of Pampers Baby-Dry nappies? Would you use them again? If so, why? If not, why not?
They are the best nappies that I have used so far. They work well during the day and can cope with our very wriggly and bouncy DS but can also manage 12+ hours whilst DS is asleep. I will continue to use them as I haven't found any other nappies as reliable. Less importantly, I like the green dot pattern on them and the little images (stars, hearts etc) of which there seem to be a variety in the pack. They are also quite thin. In comparison I tried some supermarket-own brand nappies which came highly recommended, but they were quite bulky (and very plain! Again not that important but obviously made an impression on me...).

Q2 How did they compare with other nappies you've used in terms of dryness and leakage protection?
Much drier. Only ones not to leak during the night - including compared with other Pampers lines. They also don't leak during the day and can hold plenty of poop - we've had other brands not hold up unfortunately. However on the one occasion that DS pooped during the night - highly unusual for him, was going through teething and had very runny poop, and he will not wake up any earlier if it happens so we are not woken to change him - we did end up with leakage. I don't think I would have found any other brand better though, based on previous experience. And fortunately it wasn't a big leak - again, compared with previous experience we got off lightly there.

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?
Yes - they are cheaper than some other brands and other Pampers lines and the per nappy price when you buy the large packs (like the Jumbo box), especially if they're on offer, is very reasonable in my opinion. I've used some slightly cheaper supermarket-own brands but I had to change the nappies much more regularly during the day and they didn't last at night so it turned out to be a false economy.

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, because of the above reasons largely. I think that they are a good price and the best quality I have come across, and can deal with pretty much anything a baby has to offer them! I also think that some of the other cheaper brands that claim to be better than 'the leading brand' are a false economy, based on our experience with them and compared with Pampers Baby Dry.

delasi Tue 07-May-13 17:43:12

Well, forgot to add...

DS is 20wks/nearly 5mo and we tried the size 3.

Lukasmummy Tue 07-May-13 17:49:25

I tried out a size 4 on my 18 month old daughter

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 always used Pampers nappies with all my kids, starting from the premature baby ones and right up to pull ups (although I will say that my 3.5 year old seems to prefer the other pullups because the Pampers ones always slide down thanks to him being so tall and skinny). I have tried numerous other brands but I always go back to Pampers. These ones are really good, although they feel a lot more like the active fit ones than the Baby Dry I am used to. I often buy her active fit for the day and baby dry for night because she is always wriggly and climbing.

Q2 How did they compare with other nappies you've used in terms of dryness and leakage protection?
They are awesome, my daughter has always had very wet nappies after an hour or two, Pampers are really the only brand that don't require me to change multiple outfits due to leakage or just saturation.

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 always seem to have coupons for Pampers nappies either from stores or from Pampers, they are always on offer everywhere but usually I purchase them in bulk from Boots. I think they are great value for money, but considering that I haven't found any other brand of nappy that my daughter doesn't react badly with, to me they are worth the slightly higher cost and I am always happy to pay it.

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 frequently recommend Pampers nappies to friends and family who are expecting.

iclaudius Tue 07-May-13 17:58:53

1. Nice cottony feel - not bulky although not as thin and elasticy as active fit
2. Compared well with others - in terms of dryness and non leakage they were second to none...much better than active fit. I've enjoyed baby naty nappies before but soon gone off them after finding they leaked and also caused nappy rash after any prolonged use.
3. Nappies in the uk are not cheap. I like the idea of the bigger boxes but i for one have never even seen or heard of giga box...i have no idea where to access these nice big cheaper boxes so generally end up paying a premium for smaller packs.

4. I would definitely recommend pampers baby dry over and above all other brands. I am currently expecting my eighth baby and have used baby dry with them all

iclaudius Tue 07-May-13 17:59:47

i trialled size 4 with my 14 month old son

CalamityJ Tue 07-May-13 18:00:08

9 weeks size 3

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

Pretty good and will step up to these once she's sleeping longer through the night. Better than the newborn ones so once those have run out we'll switch to these.

Q2 How did they compare with other nappies you've used in terms of dryness and leakage protection? Better than newborn for leakage but just changed her after only 5 day time hours and the nappy and her were soaking.

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?

Pretty good value but could be better in terms of needing fewer because they would keep her drier for longer.

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 probably would and have mentioned this test to a couple of them. They're better than newborn so would recommend once they're out of size 1 then to start considering these. I think they over egg the pudding with the 12 hours claim as my DD was soaking after 5 hours but given she won't be sleeping for 12 hours any time soon it's not a deal breaker.

suty1 Tue 07-May-13 18:04:01

Tested size 4 on 5 month old. Use real nappies during the day but disposable at night as he sleeps 12hrs and us a heavy wetter. Keeps him dry for 12hrs fit ok just hangs heavy between legs when wet. Will buy when offers on as expensive otherwise compared to aldi own that I buy. Would recommend to other people as do what they say they do, just an issue of cost.

km479 Tue 07-May-13 18:46:35

10 months, size 4.

1. Excellent nappy. Very absorbent and no leaks despite use overnight.

2. Much better - I've tried most brands but pampers unbeatable for absorbency IMO

3. Great value as you need to change less frequently. Plus they are usually on offer somewhere!

4. Yes absolutely. No hesitation

Sgtsmiths Tue 07-May-13 19:07:38

Trying size 4 with 18mo boy

Q1 overall very impressed - would def use again. Son seemed very happy, no probs over 12 hour night use

Q2 no leaks at all, seemed to keep bottom dry - no issues with any soreness overnight which have had with other brands

Q3 due to them being more expensive I'd look to use at night time, but use cheaper brand / style in day when we're changing more frequently. Or would only buy if on special offer

Q4 yes, would recommend as we have not had problems and seem t be able to rely on them. Baby very happy and no leaks / soreness which we've had in the past

WeOnlyPlannedTheFirst Tue 07-May-13 19:22:23

I'm using size 3 on my 4 month old boy/girl twins.

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

Mostly I'm impressed with these nappies. We have had no overnight wee leakage but unfortunately ds has had diarrhoea this week so when he "exploded" at 5.30am after being in the nappy about 7.5 hours there was some poop leakage out of one leg. Weve had another couple of leaky diarrhoea issues but it may just be isolated and due to ds not being well. Dd hasnt had a single leak. Although I generally change their nappies after each feed I often choose babydry for a day out so that if we don't find a convenient babychange area I don't have to worry about them being in the same nappy for longer than the usual 3-4 hours. I will definitely chose babydry again and always for overnight. I often use them in the day but may opt for a cheaper supermarket own brand when we're just staying home as it can get very expensive with 2 babies especially as my toddler is still in nappies too.

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

I think for dryness they are unbeatable. A thicker softer nappy is good for soft baby poo but I think babydry are a great all-rounder.

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 they are good value because they do the job and are reliable. They are more expensive than many other brands though and nappies are an area I would look to save money in if things were a bit tight. Having said that I'd probably still use them overnight but use something else in the day.

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 them because I have used them trouble free for almost 2 years now and with 3 children. They seem to fit my children well but aren't big and bulky. I also believe my children are more comfy in them overnight as a wet nappy doesn't disturb or wake them even though it may be absolutely sodden come morning.

HelloKittyHannah Tue 07-May-13 19:24:43

My son is 3 1/2 months old and we tested the size 3 nappies. He weighs about 13.5lbs.

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

Overall I was happy with the performance of the nappies. I haven't had any issues with wee leaks even after he's been in it all night. They are much nicer to use than all the other brands I've tried. Much softer, thinner and stretchier in the leg giving an overall impression of greater comfort for baby. They also don't smell quite as bad as a lot of the other brands.
My only complaint is that they offer no protection whatsoever from breastfed baby poo! It doesn't matter how tight I do them up, it just explodes straight up the back. Ever since my first son was born nearly 9 years ago I've preferred Pampers to any other brand, however I have been steering clear this time around because of the poo explosions. I never had this problem with my previous 2 boys when they used Pampers, maybe my youngest just explodes with extra force?! I feel a bit of extra stretch in the waist band would possibly help combat this.
Now my son has started sleeping through the night more I'd happily use Baby Dry over night, but for daytime protection I'll keep looking for a better nappy.

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

For dryness and protection from wee leaks I can't fault them. Compared to other brands my son needs changing far less frequently and they don't stink as soon as they're wet unlike some other brands.

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 pricey however cheaper nappies are often false economy. Supermarket brands often need changing in the middle of the night which interrupts baby's sleep whereas I can trsut Baby Dry to last through until morning.

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'd happily recommend Pampers Baby Dry to other Mums. They're great for nighttime use.

threesypeesy Tue 07-May-13 19:31:48

Q1 What was your overall impression of Pampers Baby-Dry nappies? Would you use them again? If so, why? If not, why not?
I Love them they kept my daughter dry all night saving me from her usual 4am change. They fit snuggly at the waist and hips where we usually struggle to find any other brand that fit as well and that do not have bulging at the bum
Q2 How did they compare with other nappies you've used in terms of dryness and leakage protection?
We experienced no leakage from them at all and usually dd has a problem with leakage from the thigh area as it can be difficult to find another brand that is shaped aswell to fit. She showed no signs of irritation or redness from nappy when she had been wet or in the morning which is fab.

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 for money given the standard and reputation of the brand. I have no problem in paying above the cost of other nappies to receive such good quality and protection for my daughter

*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 definitely recommend them to anyone as a great wearing/fitting nappy from a reputable brand that does exactly what it says it does.

FMJ1000 Tue 07-May-13 19:31:58

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

As a user of Pampers New Baby, I was keen to see if Baby Dry performed better. I would use the Baby Dry again but I do find the strong chemical smell off-putting and seeing as there are other brands that perform just as well without the smell, my recommendation would be mixed. They are slightly less bulky than some nappies which is positive but the sizes are less generous than other brands.

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

Great dryness and hardly any leaks. Our little one sleeps ten hours and he's still comfortable in the morning when he wakes.

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?

Pampers are generally more expensive per unit. However as they have good absorbency, they last longer when baby just riddled. Regular offers however in supermarkets means they come up the same price as other cheaper brands. Do your homework to save money!

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 discuss all of the above! I like the Pampers brand but the strong chemical smell does put me off, especially when taking my son out in public!

FMJ1000 Tue 07-May-13 19:34:02

Oops, he's 9 weeks old, 13lb and wears size 3!

Piemother Tue 07-May-13 19:36:35

Just marking my place so I can find the thread again. Starting the trial tomorrow grin

Roseland Tue 07-May-13 19:36:59

I used Size 4 on our 19 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?

I really like them - we would definitely use again

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

Very well - they are definitely the best.

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?

Yes, they are not much more expensive (particularly with all the offers) and you get value for money as they are so 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?

Yes - they really keep baby dry and that is the most important thing.

mamaLou13 Tue 07-May-13 19:37:03

Please state the age of your baby/child and the size of nappy you were trying in your response.
I tried these size 3 nappies on my 11 week old dd.

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

I quite liked these nappies they kept my baby's bottom dry and were nice and soft in contrast to Huggies which i found quite stiff. The only thing i was not very keen on were the designs but then that really isn't much of an issue.

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

They were one of the best for keeping in the giant poo's but as another poster said with some there is no nappy that could keep it all in. The only problem i had was that after a few wee's some of the tiny crystals came out into the nappy onto baby's bottom so i was not impressed with that.

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 a bit on the pricey side if i am honest as i think sonesupermarket brands are just as good and with the state of the economy at the moment people are swaying more towards a product where they cam make a saving whilst not compromising quality too much.

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 think i would but i would also say that they are a little pricey.

workingmumto1 Tue 07-May-13 19:59:37

I have tried the Pampers Baby-Dry nappies size 4 with my 11.5 months old DD.

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

They are slim and seem thin. They seem to be comfortable for my DD to wear - she's walking, running, climbing etc. and we haven't had a leak yet. They did gap at the top around the tummy area no matter how snug they are done up. I would use them again, because they didn't leak and DD found them comfortable - but I do prefer the pull-up type nappy as they are easier to put on DD when she is so active!

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

DD has only leaked with the Boots and Sainsbury's own brand nappies. The Tesco brand hasn't leaked so far and neither did these. The Pampers Baby-Dry seem to bulge more than the Tesco brand but the pampers did seem to hold poo in better - no discolouration around the sides!

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 a bit more expensive but they are good value for money in that they don't leak even when DD is climbing the furniture or running up and down the garden smile I would probably wait until they were on offer then buy them. Having said that, I can't find the bigger packs in my local stores and having to keep buying the smaller packs is off-putting because of the comparative cost.

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 because they do what they claim, but I would warn them that they are an expensive to buy even if they do not leak.
If my DD does a poo, I am going to change the nappy - regardless of whether the nappy leaked or not. It's good that they last the night though - sleep is so important (for me and DH as well as DD!)

hytheliz Tue 07-May-13 20:00:22

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

I usually use Pampers Baby Dry and I will continue using them after testing them for this product test. They are a good quality product that does what it says, keeps my baby dry and happy!

Q2 How did they compare with other nappies you've used in terms of dryness and leakage protection?
I've come to rely on Pampers because they reliably keep my baby dry and have never experienced a leak.

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 would prefer them to be cheaper and more comparable to all the generic brands.

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 them because they seem to be good quality and I can count on them to keep my baby dry and happy.

Julieackland1985 Tue 07-May-13 20:04:15

1) Overall impression is that these nappies are quite good, they kept my 3 month old dry all night. They are very slim and have a cute design. They do not however with stand poop and my daughter has had several explosions. They also have an unpleasant chemical smell.
2) The nappies are very good for( wee ) dryness compared to other brands.
3) these are good value for money as I often do not need to change my lo in the night. Meaning I get to sleep a little longer.
4) I would recommend these for dryness but sadly I will still be looking for a nappy that can with stand poop and that do not have the chemical smell

We used these for DS3, he's 6 months and we used size 3.

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

I really like the design, they are compact enough and slim line to store and transport easily and neatly, they fit well and are flexible enough for DS as he's beginning to get to grips with getting around.
They keep him dry and he does wee an awful lot at night (he's a big evening feeder!) they hold thief shape well and don't fall apart. His skin has been kept soft and he hasn't got sore or red.

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

We use Pampers anyway and haven't really encountered any problems with leaking (unless its a position error on our part) but even still you can certainly see a difference with the amount of liquid these absorb.

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, DS is a real struggle to get to sleep as it is, keeping him dry and comfortable is one challenge in itself and knowing you can rely on a nappy to do that is one job sorted, I can't put a price on that plus I'm not having to use tons of nappies due to leaking so a pack lasts a while.

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 and I have to friends and family that have had babies, someone was using a supermarket brand and her DD was leaking in the night so I recommended Pampers to her and she's had good results.

Bearmonkeysmum Tue 07-May-13 20:29:57

I used size 4 on my 10mth old.

Q1- I was very happy with these nappies, a good fit on my chunky build ds & kept him dry & comfy through the night (about 11 hours).

Q2- Pampers are the only nappies I've found that do not leak when ds where's them.

Q3- I do think they are a little expensive & whilst I do think they are a superior product I tend to bulk buy when on offer & utilise coupons to bring the price closer to the other brands available.

Q4- I'd happily reccommend them, very comfy on little ones, excellent fit, great at keeping the wet away from skin & very very few leaks.

Rubypluslottie Tue 07-May-13 20:35:50

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 the baby-dry nappies as they did not leek. They were very slim and felt soft to touch.

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

I have always been a pampers fan and these nappies did not disappoint as they kept my daughter fast asleep all night as she did not wake up with a wet nappy. They were very absorbent.

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?

Yes I believe they are very good value for money as when you work out that you won't be needing as many nappies as you normally would as they are more absorbent. In fact I think I will actually end up saving money!

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 highly recommend them to any parent, family with little ones as they are so good and help enable a baby to sleep through the night without waking up due to a wet nappy.

I tried size 4 on DD who is 2y (27months) and almost 11kg.

Q1 What was your overall impression of Pampers Baby-Dry nappies? Would you use them again? If so, why? If not, why not?
I liked them. I like the feel - they're not as stiff as some other nappies and feel softer. I also thought they looked nice. They were effective and didn't cause any rashes/reactions. I'd use them again.

Q2 How did they compare with other nappies you've used in terms of dryness and leakage protection?
They were at least as good as any other nappy we've tried. I thin they kept DD's skin drer and we had fewer leaks. They seem to have a good capacity.

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?
Given the improved performance, I think they're reasonabl value for money. I'd try to buy them on promotion.

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. They suited DD very well. Good quality, but not cheap.

I tested Size 4 on my 6 month old DD

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

Nice and soft. Quite a strong chemical smell. They didn't leak and kept her dry all night. Her skin didn't feel clammy and no problem with nappy rash. I would use them again as I found them nice on her skin and they moved well with her, not puckering or wrinkling and they didn't restrict her movement as much as other brands

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

They are definitely the best for not leaking and keeping her dry all night

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 good value for money but expensive and I would probably choose own brand first

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. They are good for keeping baby dry but I would warn about the cost.

Carry Pack - £6.49
Economy Pack - £9.99
Jumbo Box - £12.99
Mega Box - £17.49
Giga Box - £22.99

I tested size 4 nappies on my 7 month old son.

1) Great nappies would use them again. My son didn't have a red bum which he sometimes gets from other brands of nappies.

2) I found pampers baby dry nappies much better than other brands of nappies for softness and they don't leak as easily as other nappies. My sons often wakes through the night with a leaky nappy with other brands this rarely happens with pampers baby dry nappies.

3) They are more expensive than store own brands however they are a more superior nappy therefore get what you pay for.

4) Yes I would recommend pampers baby dry nappies as they are my number one choice in nappies for my baby.

Jane0304 Tue 07-May-13 21:02:43

I used size 4 nappies on my 11 month old little boy.

Q1) My overall impression of Pampers Baby Dry nappies is, as it always has been, GREAT!!! I have used them on all 3 of my children, interspersed with cheaper, other brands, but always gone back to Pampers.
Q2) I think, over the years I must have used every brand of nappy on the market, but for sheer quality, I always end up back with Pampers. I never have any leakage issues, they always fit beautifully on boys and girls and are soft on the skin for baby.
Q3) Considering the quality of the nappies, I would say they are great value for money. They have saved me a fortune in washing leaked on clothing and bedding over the years, not to mention the fact that I don't have to change a wet cot in the middle of the night half asleep!!! Priceless in my book!!
Q4) I always recommend Pampers to my friends with first babies. Those who are on subsequent children already know!!

lindaflinda76 Tue 07-May-13 21:17:10

Baby age 4 months, tried size 3. .

Q1 What was your overall impression of Pampers Baby-Dry nappies? Would you use them again? If so, why? If not, why not?
I love these and wouldn't use anything else for nighttime.

Q2 How did they compare with other nappies you've used in terms of dryness and leakage protection?
They are the best in terms of wee soaking-uppage; I think breastfed baby poo tends to easily squish out the top sometimes, but our boy never poos at night anymore so these are perfect for nights. I never change him at night anymore and he hardly ever leaks.

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 don't even care, I'd pay any price!

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!

buckley1983 Tue 07-May-13 21:26:38

I used the Size 3 Pampers Baby-Dry on my son who is 15 weeks old.

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

The packaging is neat, compact & easy to open. The nappies themselves are very slim, soft to touch, easy to put on baby & he seemed very comfortable when wearing them. I would be happy to use them again.

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

Very absorbent - particularly for such a lightweight nappy. No leaks so far & he has been wearing them throughout the night without any problems or irritation to the skin.

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 more expensive than other similar products, but promotions are often available so I tend to stock up at these times. Ultimately, I am prepared to pay more for an effective product. I feel I can rely on Pampers Baby-Dry to keep my baby comfortable & dry & this is more important to me than price.

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

Without doubt! Pampers Baby-Dry nappies are a great all-rounder & are well worth the extra money.

imawigglyworm Tue 07-May-13 21:38:20

Size 4 tested
Q1 What was your overall impression of Pampers Baby-Dry nappies? Would you use them again? If so, why? If not, why not?

They looked nice, with a fun design and didnt look too bulky. Even when wet they werent as 'bulky' as other nappies can be and my son didnt get nappy rash while weraing them. I would definately use again as definately the best nappy that ive tried.

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

They were very absorbant even after being worn for a full night. And they withstand a good battering from my DS who is constantly on the go and putting his hands down his nappy constantly blush they stay firmly done up so no leaks or accidents.

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 happily pay the price for them as they are definately worth it. Also some supermarkets do great deals when buying them in the larger boxed packs.

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

Pampers is the only nappy that I personally recommend as all others i've tried dont compare.

Angle1234 Tue 07-May-13 21:48:21

Tested size 4
I liked pampers they keep my baby dry and held a lot xx yes i would use them again they kept my girl dry to reduce nappy rash so thats important to me.
I think compared to others they held a lot more they felt just as soft as others no leak so far!, only one but no nappy would of survived that!,
They were soft and i liked the patten .
Compared to others they were more expensive that would put me off buying. The amount to pay an wetness indicatetor would be good. I would recommend them but the price is a bit steep compared to others you get more nappies for your money as some other nappies are just as good.

Paperbag Tue 07-May-13 21:58:32

5 month old, 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?

Good nappies, slim, good protection against leaks. Would use again, definitely.

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

Much better than Huggies and keep baby dry for most of the night (unless she's had lots of overnight milk).

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 a little expensive compared to some other brands - but they work well. So, good value for money as you don't need to use as many!

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, for comfort and protection against leaks. They also haven't caused any nappy rash even when the nappy is on all night.

J9bevan Tue 07-May-13 22:05:39

I got size 3 for my 3month old

Q1) I was very happy they kept her dry and happy all night leak free and dry when I changed her so I'm happy

Q2) I use little angles and pampers new baby compared to both these they where just as good if not better.

Q3) They cost the same (about) as the pampers new born so I would only use them in my nappy bag and over night and use the cheaper ones in the day.

Q4) I would recommend them to friends (not as the cheap option)

Emmaw9 Tue 07-May-13 22:16:20

Baby is 5 months old and tested size 3.

1- impressed with quality of nappy. Kept baby dry with no leaks for 11 hours and nappy stayed secure. Good design.

2- Other brands of nappies tend to leak from the front with wetness or from the sides with poo. Pampers keep baby dry in the morning and no explosions on clothes!

3- Compared with cheaper brand they can look pricey on the shelves. But, when you use the cheaper brands you realise why they are priced like they are. I think pampers are good value for money as you get that better quality of nappy

4- Would definetly recommend these nappies, nice dry baby in the morning with no leakages.

OddFrog Tue 07-May-13 22:21:15

I tried size 3 for my 5 month old DD.

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

They are a great shape for her chunky legs and keep everything in. No leaks even with an epic Poonami in the early hours - so after nearly a whole night of wee in there too. Very impressed. We'll keep using them at night, definitely.

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

Better for leak protection. A bit if an odd smell thought. Chemically.

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?

Comparible with other brands and a great bargain if you can catch a supermarket deal. I do buy on price, so a bit cheaper would swing it for me.

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. They work for us. I like them.

I also tried baby dry size 6 for my 3.6 yo DS for nights only and they hold toddler sized wee very well without clumping or leaking and he said they were comfy and he really liked that he didn't smell so much after he took it off in the morning. I had to convince him he still had to wash! (Hope we don't need them much longer...)

KatyaPLVS Tue 07-May-13 22:41:09

I received them today, size 4

Tried nappies on Dd age 9 months, we tried size 4.

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

Definitely would use again, reliable nappies with a good close fit.

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

I found the pampers much more reliably leakproof than others I've tried. Dd can be relied upon to test leakproofness to the limit!

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 they're good value for money, they keep dd dry for longer using fewer nappies. so I find them more economical than others.

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 all the above reasons. I find them the best all round nappies.

wilson81 Tue 07-May-13 23:11:45

I tested size 4 nappies for my 8 month son.

The nappies were great during the day whether my son rolled about or rushed around in his walker. No leaks and he was happy to stay in them for a few hours. However at night they seemed to leak but I think this is due to the fact he rolls over and sleeps on his tummy, however this has happened with every nappy I have tried, but this didn't seem to bother him and he remained asleep throughout the night.
I would definitely use pampers baby dry again for night time because as I previously said they are the best I have so far found for night time use but am quite happy with cheaper brands during the day.

Pampers baby dry do cost a lot more than shop branded nappies which is another reason why I will only use them during the night, especially since I've discovered Lidl nappies are only £4.69 for 50 and are brilliant for daytime wear.

I have already discussed pampers baby dry with a group of mums i regularly meet with. I have told them what I have discovered as above and have found mixed reviews regarding all nappy brands.

Loopylibra Wed 08-May-13 00:05:53

I tested size 4 nappies on my 6 mth old

Q1
Very impressed by them, fab absorbency lovely fit and more appropriate for my LO age compared to new baby range. Definitely would use them again

Q2
I have used new baby range for majority of time but did try out Huggies when my LO was few weeks old and would say that baby dry definitely got more protection than both so have moved til baby dry range from now

Q3
I typically buy when they are on offer but do feel that they are good value for money given the quality and protection that you receive

Q4
Definitely would recommend baby dry as it has reduced leakage drastically and looks secure and comfortable for my LO

MAsMum Wed 08-May-13 05:51:27

Please state the age of your baby/child and the size of nappy you were trying in your response.

16 weeks (16lbs1oz) Size 3

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 impressed. Yes, as there was no chemical smell and they were thin but still absorbent.

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

They were a lot more effective.

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 more expensive than own brand nappies but as they don't leak they represent good value for money.

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 as they are thin but absorbent.

NotSoNervous Wed 08-May-13 08:26:44

Marking my places. Just got ours so need to try them for a couple of nights first

gyinnit Wed 08-May-13 09:17:20

My son is 11 months old and tried the size 4 nappies.

Q1 They are a great nappy which has never leaked with this baby anyway. My eldest preferred Huggies, which leaked with my youngest. It is baby specific I guess. I would definitely use them again, they do the job and keep my baby dry, particularly at night. I haven't bought specific active nappies for him, but these seem to do the trick for active babies as well.

Q2 The leakage protection was great - he had quite a few loose stools due to teething while trying these nappies and never once was there any leakage.

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?
Yes, any nappy that prevents leaks and keeps my baby's skin dry is definitely value for money!

Q4 Yes, I would recommend it for the reasons stated above. He's never had a problem waking up due to wet or leaking nappies, and he's been sleeping 12 hours since he was 3 months old. smile

weenwee Wed 08-May-13 09:19:04

Hrm.

My child is 27 months, we tried size 4.

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

We would not get them again, and here's why: The chemical burn my poor kid got on his genitals was horrifying. sad

I'm a huge fan of Pampers, using their ActiveFits for night-time, so when Pampers came out with BabyDry, I was so excited! I ripped open the package as soon as it arrived yesterday afternoon, and....oh my God, the stench of chemicals was awful. I had to put the nappies outside in a hamper so my living room didn't stink. After they breathed for about an hour, I decided to test one on my son prior to his night-time nappy, and I'm so glad I did! Within an hour, he peed, and immediately grabbed his crotch in pain. By the time I got the nappy off him, his whole pubic area was bright red and inflamed. I'm not sure what extra chemicals they packed in this nappy to make it so slim and absorbant, but my son reacted violently to it. angry

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

They didn't leak, but we sure didn't give them another chance!

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 seem fine, cost wise.

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. The super-chemical smell plus burn means we could not in good faith recommend them. I would instead point people to Pampers ActiveFit.

Boggler Wed 08-May-13 10:13:51

Q1 What was your overall impression of Pampers Baby-Dry nappies? Would you use them again? If so, why? If not, why not?
at first I was very pleased with the nappies, I usually buy Pampers Active Fit which are a lot more expensive so the Baby Dry seemed to compare well.

Q2 How did they compare with other nappies you've used in terms of dryness and leakage protection?
the level of dryness seemed fine not brilliant but perfectly acceptable. There were no leakage issues and they were strongly tested.

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?
the price is fine and if you get them on offer they compare well to supermarket own brand prices.

Q4 If it came up in conversation, would you recommend Pampers Baby-Dry nappies to other parents? If so, why? If not, why not?
whilst I was very pleased with the nappies at first, after using them for 3 days I noticed that my baby had really sore red genitals, it looked like a burn! I have never seen anything like this and my baby has never had so much as a nappy rash when we were using the Active Fit. The redness was very sore looking and after switching back to Actve Fit the rawness disappeared. I can only conclude that the red sore areas were caused by the nappies and for that reason I would never recommend them to another parent. Whatever chemical is in them it's not good for babies. sad

cakesareyummy Wed 08-May-13 10:23:06

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 like them more than any other nappy on the market. I've tried a few with my daughter because of problems with leaking that I didn't have with my son! I would definitely use them again as they do not seem to leak up the side and they definitely last all night.

Q2 How did they compare with other nappies you've used in terms of dryness and leakage protection?
Much better. Less leakage and reasonably dry.

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 very similar in price to other nappies and they are usually on offer in the supermarket so I think they are priced acceptably although more expensive than a lot of own brand nappies which would put a lot of people off. Especially when little babies poo every nappy and you need to change them a lot. Better value once the poos become less frequent!

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 because I have found them the best for not leaking.

Elloeise Wed 08-May-13 10:40:22

I used size 4 nappies on my 6 mth old.

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

Slim fit, seemed comfortable at first however when I took it off in the morning my son was very sore at the front where the elastic had rubbed. I much prefer active fit.

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

They kept him dry, however so do active fit.

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 cheaper , but personally I would not choose them over a more expensive, comfortable reliable nappy.

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 not as they made my son sore and I feel that I would need a different type of nappy during the day.

Size 4 tested on 15 month old DD2

Q1
Overall impression was they were nice and small, not bulky. Nice sticky tabs and worked well. Would use them again.

Q2
No leaks at all, even when DH put the nappy on and he can be a bit random even after 5 years! Held the overnight wee bulk in very well. Usually even though the nappies haven't exactly leaked, there is a vague feeling of pyjama dampness in the mornings but so far not with these.

Q3
Yes, good value, using fewer of them also.

Q4
Yes I would based on this. I had abandoned them with DD1 as they seemed to have changed for the worse but I'm impressed with these so far.

geetz Wed 08-May-13 11:15:54

Tested on 17 month old,size 4.

Q1:- Nappies looked very slim compared to others and soft to touch.

Q2:- Always use pampers for night times as the only brand which doesn't leak over night for us.Baby doesn't have a wet bum when changing as some nappies aren't as absorbent.

Q3:- They are expensive,compared to other brands,but I'm prepared to pay more for a quality nappies.

Q4:- I would definitely reccomend pampers to others.

Size 3, five month old

Q1

I liked the nappies, I thought the might be too big but the fitted well, a little loose around the legs but it didn't cause any problems. They don't seem to 'bulge' as much as other nappies when they have been on all night. I would use them again, if on offer.

Q2

I've not had any leakage problems, as said above they don't bulge so much.

Q3

Even with the £1 off coupon they are still 3p more than the tesco equivalent so unfortunately I won't be using them again.

Q4

If someone was having problems with other nappies yes I would.

shelley72 Wed 08-May-13 11:34:42

Please state the age of your baby/child and the size of nappy you were trying in your response
DD is very nearly 3 and still in a Size 4 nappy.

Q1 What was your overall impression of Pampers Baby-Dry nappies? Would you use them again? If so, why? If not, why not?
Have always used pampers and have noticed that they have changed recently. They did seem quite slimline so was worried how absorbent they would be. Pattern was quite cute and they had a nice snug fit (she's not huge anyway). No leakages, even overnight. Would definitely use again.

Q2 How did they compare with other nappies you've used in terms of dryness and leakage protection?
Much better. Have used Naturecare and Huggies before when on offer / have run out on holiday. Always go back to pampers.

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 do seem more expensive than own brand nappies but then they work more effectively IME!

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, they contain leakages well. Would recommend, especially if they were on offer at the time.

emily80 Wed 08-May-13 11:38:17

My son is 18 months old and I've been trying the size 4 with him.

1) I like them very much, they are very soft and thin so seem really comfy, but are also really absorbant. I love the design on them too. I'd definitely be happy to use them again.

2) They've performed brilliantly and kept my son really dry with no leaks, although other nappies I've used - Huggies Super Dry and Aldi Mamia ones - generally perform really well too. I think the Pampers are thinner than either of these though.

3) I do think they're quite pricey - I would only buy them on offer. We've recently had a new Aldi open near us and their nappies are fantastic and far cheaper than these, so I would buy them in preference, based purely on value for money.

4) Yes I would as they perform really well, but I do think they're quite expensive at full price.

mrumru22 Wed 08-May-13 12:51:17

I tried Pamper Baby Dry size 3 on my 15 weeks 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?

The nappies were great product, very slim and soft, which moved well with the baby.

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

Pampers Baby Dry keeps my son drier longer, no leaks.

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 more expensive then other nappies, but they have excellent quality. Usually i can find great offer price for Pamper Baby Dry in Boots or Tesco.

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 Pamper Baby Dry nappies to other Mums. Really great product, high quality.

georgyporgie Wed 08-May-13 13:06:52

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

I liked the design and the fact that they are so slim (recently got a free pack of Sainsbury's "baby dry" and these reminded me of the style of sanitary protection in Judy Blume books- thick uncomfortable pads! DS hated them) first off. Have been using Pampers New Baby prior to this, and thought they were fantastic and was slightly apprehensive about moving on to the non new baby ones. These were excellent. No wetness, clamminess, redness and ds happily snoozes away in them for a 12 hour stretch.

Despite being able to tell that he's piddled a lot by the morning (i.e. the front of the nappy is like a big sponge) this doesn't get through to his clothes or him so I think these are brilliant. Would definitely use them again. Also easy to put on with just the right stickiness!

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

By far the best. Have previously been given some huggies, Aldi, Tesco & Sainsburys when I've run out at baby groups (forward planning is an area I need to work on, obviously) and found them utterly rubbish with leaking through onto clothes, dampness and shart escape.

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, for the reasons above, but I would only buy them in bulk and during a baby event as otherwise they are very expensive.

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

Absolutely. For the reasons above. Funnily enough, my mum still extols the virtues of Pampers from when I was in nappies so they've always been good it seems!

georgyporgie Wed 08-May-13 13:08:27

Oh, and it was the size 4 nappies on my 7 month old (who is about 20lbs now I think mental note to go to HV to get him weighed )..

My little girl is 12 weeks and I tried size 3.

Q1. Very good, kept my baby dry through the night. Have bought some as we're on offer when I needed to restock.

Q2. Have used pampers new baby and the do leave babies skin dryer. Not had a poop in them yet so not sure if they'll leak.

Q3. They are most expensive, but I bulk buy when there's an offer on as you always need nappies.

Q4. I would recommend, and know other mums who do use these

robbie1972 Wed 08-May-13 13:18:29

I tried size 4 for my 9 month old son which were quite snug as he is a big boy!

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

Nice and soft, with lovely designs. They definitely are the most absorbent nappy I've found - they kept him dry all night and in the day and as I buy Pampers anyway I thoroughly recommend them! Very reliable. Funny smell like others have said but you can live with that.

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

The most absorbent I've found, definitely. Have used supermarket own brands and they have leaked sad

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?

Yes, good value versus supermarket own brands definitely. You get good deals on Pampers in Asda.

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 them without a doubt. Good value for money, no leakages, comfy and reliable. 100% love them!

HappyAsEyeAm Wed 08-May-13 13:45:56

Please state the age of your baby/child and the size of nappy you were trying in your response

I tried size 4 nappies for my 12 month old boy.

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

Nice and soft, snug, and not at all bulky. Very easy to do up and re-adjust. They seem to suit my baby's shape. No nappy rash at all. I am very pleased with the product.

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

Great - no leaks for wee, and only leaked poo a tiny bit when he'd had an enormous one whilst in a sitting position. No complaints at all, and loads better than other brands.

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?

Although they aren't cheap compared to other brands, they are very reliable and I am happy to pay extra for this.

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 always recommend Pampers because they're slim fitting clothes fit over them easily), rarely leak, are easy to do up and adjust and are very reliable.

TheWitch22 Wed 08-May-13 13:46:21

Tested Size 4 Nappies.
Very impressed with them being leak free and flexible, cuts down on the washing as not as many wet clothing, would definitely use again.
Although they are fairly expensive, they do not have to be changed as often as the cheaper ones, so work out good value for money.
Have already recommended them to friends.

Aoifeos Wed 08-May-13 13:46:22

Received My size 4 pampers nappies. I have found they are lovely and soft. The size is a little bit more generous then other size 4 nappies that i have used recently. My son kept leaking during the night but this did not happy wth the pampers baby dry nappies. Great product smile

PleaseDontEatMyShoe Wed 08-May-13 14:05:21

Testing size 4 with 11mo DS

Q1 What was your overall impression of Pampers Baby-Dry nappies? Would you use them again? If so, why? If not, why not?
-Very slim nappy, designs are sweet, and I liked the extra frill bit around the legs-great for slightly skinny, very active DS! I'll be switching over the Baby-Dry now for day and night-we've not had a leak since we started using the test pack, and he seems very comfortable wearing them (if he gets a loose fitting nappy, he'll helpfully try to undo the tabs for me hmm)

Q2 How did they compare with other nappies you've used in terms of dryness and leakage protection?
-Absolutely brilliant-even coped with a 24 tummy bug, not a single leak that I'm sure would have defeated another nappy!

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 more expensive, but so much easier-no night changes needed (except with the tummy bug, obv) and no changes of clothes during the day. Also don't get that awful sagging look if he wees and we don't notice straight away.

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, would def recommend if they were having issues with leaks/baby had an upset tummy/were looking to do without a night change

Thank you!

AnnaKn Wed 08-May-13 15:06:56

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 impressed with them. They are soft and flexible. Im going use them all the time.
Q2 How did they compare with other nappies you've used in terms of dryness and leakage protection?
Better than other nappies. Prize is good. They keep my baby dry during the night and she doesnt have to wake up at night time without reason.
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?
Prize is ok but other brands are a lot cheaper. But I like that they are so many promotions with pampers what makes it more interesting. They are more expensive but it is worth it bacause when my baby is happy Im happy too.
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, of course I will recommend them as a great, comfortable, soft and dry nappies. Im already doing it!!!

JeanBillie Wed 08-May-13 15:22:18

We tried size 4 on my dd.

1. Overall impression - good fit, cute design. I do think they're a little 'puffier' than the Pampers Active Fit that we usually use.

2. No problems with leakage. My DD sleeps 12-14 hours a night <stealth boast, but true!> so they were heavy in the morning but she has a dry bottom.

3. Cost - I always think Pampers are more expensive than other brands. But at one stage we tried a supermarket own brand and she got nappy rash... I don't know of it was a coincidence but I stick with Pampers just in case.

4. If it came up in conversation I see no reason not to recommend Pampers Baby- Dry. smile

I used these on my DD 7 1/2 months old, size 3.

Q1 What was your overall impression of Pampers Baby-Dry nappies? Would you use them again? If so, why? If not, why not?
Overall, I am very impressed. I thought Pampers were not usually very absorbent and felt damp on the outside but they weren't. So obviously, very pleased.
My previous experience of Pampers has been using the newborn sizes and not felt they were very good at all. So by the time my DC were a couple of months old (and I'd used up the ones I had bought) I had moved over to other more reliable brands.

Q2 How did they compare with other nappies you've used in terms of dryness and leakage protection?
Dryness, very good. I usually use Asda, Aldi or Tesco nappies and they were just as good. I have found no problems with leaks, but then I no longer have that problem anyway.

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 find they are more expensive than the nappies I use and they aren't superior enough for me to spend the extra money on them.
If I had a problem with the supermarket brands I would use Pampers.

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, if they could afford the extra expense I would. They are far thinner when they first go on than other brands so this makes me think they must be more effective. But then thicker nappies don't seem to bother my DC.

rcs19 Wed 08-May-13 15:38:40

I tried size 3 with my 4 month old. I was very impressed with them. They fit snugly and are less bulky than the own brand nappies I've tried. They also seem more flexible so I'd imagine they are more comfortable to wear. I'm pleased with their absorbency and this means less leaks. In terms of price, buying in bulk makes them comparable with own brand nappies. I would recommend these.

sandysmum Wed 08-May-13 16:13:02

I am using size 4 for DD who is just 1 year old

Q1. The nappies are thinner than the Sainsburys' ones I currently use. The design is nicer on the Pampers. They hold up well overnight for 12 hours and I feel I can rely on them . However if they are a bit wet during the day then they do seem to leak when DD has a poo than the Sainsburys ones ( I am obviously changing her straight away but there can be a mess quite quickly).
Q2. They are better with dryness on her skin, but leak more.
Q3. I think they are good value for money, when they are on offer. Otherwise I would stick with my current ones in the daytime and use Pampers for night.
Q4. I would recommend them to parents, for night time as they are better for keeping babies' skin drier.

PS I bought Pampers when on holiday in the USA and they were better and had a nicer design.

brucefiona Wed 08-May-13 16:21:54

I tested the size 3 on my twenty week old little girl.
1. I was very impressed with them they kept her skin nice and dry and didn't leak
2. They seem lighter and softer than the other brands an the fasteners were really good .

3. I think they are worth the money and I will be buying them in future.

4. My daughter still feeds in the night and his is the only brand that I have tried that doesn't leak on her clothes and her bottom was still dry.

5. I have raved about these to all f my friends.
6. I will be using them o day and night

Stujobohm Wed 08-May-13 16:27:39

I tried size 4 on my 6 month old.
I was impressed with them they kept my LO dry through the night.
I would recommened these as they do keep your little ones dry.
The only negative thing is the price, they are a lot more expensive than other nappies, even when on offer.

zinja Wed 08-May-13 16:28:19

Hi

Q1 My first impression was they were a nice soft material with cute pictures but more importantly when I placed them on my baby they had a wonderful high back which i think makes a huge difference especially at night. Baby slept very comfortably through the whole night and even though she woke up with a full nappy she had no discomfort and was happy babbling away untill hunger took over. For these reasons I would definitely use Pampers Baby Dry again.

Q2 There is no comparision to store brand nappies in my opinon Pampers Baby dry are a much softer nappy and can comfortably hold more than other brands. I especially found with a no 2 there was no leakage and the higher back prevented any leaks onto her clothes.

Q3 Pampers baby Dry are more expensive but I find I use less of them than store brands. I do think the bigger boxes are better value and will be keeping an eye out for special offers.

Q4 I would definitely recommend these nappies for quality comfort and for enabling baby to have a full nights sleep without discomfort plus again I have to say the higher back is a huge benefit.

Pinkyorkbunny Wed 08-May-13 16:42:51

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 absolutely brilliant!! I was a bit sceptical at first because they were so thin. My daughter's bottom was so dry (even after a 13 hour sleep)! I love them so much I think they should be called baby-bone-dry grin. They were a great fit and stretchy allowing plenty of movement for the little one. I don't think I will be using any other brand from now on and will be sticking with these. It's taken ages to find a good nappy like this.

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

I think they are the best yet! It will take a lot of persuading from other companies to make me switch back now. I had no leaks at all grin from poos or wees

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 that they are expensive compared to the other brands but in my honest opinion are worth every penny! It probably works out just as good because I didn't seem to have to change my baby as often.

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

It has come up in conversation with my friends and I have recommended these wink. Baby- Bone -Dry nappies just impressed me so much

Pinkyorkbunny Wed 08-May-13 16:49:57

PS They were used on my 8 month old daughter (16.5lbs) grin

Pinkyorkbunny Wed 08-May-13 16:53:13

I was also using size 4!

jessica789 Wed 08-May-13 16:58:20

I tried size 4 on my 14 month old.

Q1. I love the soft feel of Pampers, and they are very slim. Also easy to put on a wriggly baby. Will definitely be using them again. The only thing I don't like about them is the chemically smell - it does make me worry a bit about how safe they are for a baby's skin.

Q2. I think they are the best nappies for absorbancy and fit = no leaks. They compare favourably to cheaper supermarket brands.

Q3. Although expensive, I do feel they are worth the extra money as I'm likely to use one less a day as they less prone to leaks. Although sometimes I will save Pampers for the night time nappy and use cheaper supermarket nappies during the day.

Q4. I would recommend them as the most reliable/comfortable disposable nappy.

Beanypip Wed 08-May-13 17:17:50

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

They look good and they are not too thick, they take in a lot of wee during the night and didnt leak at all, daughters skin wasnt red or sore. They are not too bulky under the clothes either. Yes i would use them again

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

I have used other well known brands before and supermarket brands and they both leaked pampers are the only ones that didnt leak.

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 dont think they are any more expensive than others and are always on offer in supermarkets. And they a worth it as they dont leak

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 always recommend pampers as i feel they are the best nappies. The baby dry are good for my daughter as she doesnt move around but not sure what they are like for babies who are always on the move.

Beanypip Wed 08-May-13 17:18:58

Woops forgot this bit. They were used on my 14 month old (18lb 8oz) size 4

LifesAHappySong Wed 08-May-13 17:32:26

I used the size 3 on my 11 week old daughter.

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

The nappies are reliable at protecting from leaks but still feel soft - i wouldn't want to use a plasticky feeling nappy on a small baby. I would definitely use them again as they seem better quality and there are less leaks than other brands.

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

Really good, they very rarely leak overnight which is a massive plus.

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, as others have said, they cost more but you use less and they are more reliable.

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 as they really help to limit the number of daytime outfit changes and night time wake ups. As a mum of a toddler and small baby this is invaluable!

ItsallisnowaFeegle Wed 08-May-13 17:33:16

Also marking my place. My DP's just come from work and has collected our pack from the sorting office.

I used size 3 on my 4 month old 14lb DS.

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

Very slim compared to other brands that I've tried and much more flexible. The design was cute and the tabs gripped well. The nappies kept my baby dry for 12 hours and did not leak. When I changed the first nappy of the morning his skin was becoming slightly damp but it had been on 12 hours by then. I found Pampers provided very good protection against leaks, offered long-term dryness and minimised the smell of urine given the amount contained.
I would definitely use Pampers again and would not use any other brand at night.

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

I found Pampers to be the best nappies I have used in terms of dryness and leakage protection. I have experienced urine and poo leaks with ASDA and Aldi and poo leaks with Huggies but neither with Pampers. Although I have used other nappies in the day previously I have found that I ended up having to change his clothes much more often due to leaks.

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?

Although Pampers are more expensive than the alternative brands I do think that they offer good value for money. They provide my baby with a full nights dryness and mean that I do not need to disturb him by changing him in the night and reduce the amount of washing I need to do through leaking onto clothes.

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 Pampers to others. I think that they help my baby to sleep longer at night and prevent his skin from becoming irritated by keeping the urine away from his skin for longer than other brands I have tried.

ilovepicnmix Wed 08-May-13 19:05:06

I tested since 4 for my 10 month old boy.
1. Overall impression was great. They fit him very well. Other brands struggle to get round his, rather large, belly. No leaks overnight. I would use them again but only for nighttime due to price. Other cheaper nappies do the job during the day but not at night.
2. Really good. They are the only ones I trust not to leak at night.
3. They are expensive but im happy to pay for nighttime use only. I wouldnt buy them alone as cheaper brands are good enough for daytime.
4. I would recommend them.

givemeaboost Wed 08-May-13 20:23:10

I had size 4 for dd 2.9

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

Slim design, keep dd dry for full 12hrs at night

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

Ive used pampers for 9 yrs through my dcs, out of every brand I have ever used it is by far the most absorbent

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?

Yes I definitely think of buying pampers as buying a superior nappy which performs well rather than a marginally cheaper brand which i have to change 2-3times as much, that’s a false economy and costs me more in the long run

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 them, never had problems with them in the 9+yrs ive used them, only ever time i did there was one pack the tabs kept falling off, rang pampers, the customer service was very good and i was sent some vouchers to compensate

dogindisguise Wed 08-May-13 20:29:10

Tried them with DD aged 4 months - size 3

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

They do 12 hours at night with no leaks so very pleased with them in that respect.

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

I don't remember any other disposable nappy leaking but they do seem to hold a lot of wee. They sometimes smell a bit in the morning.

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 haven't done all the sums but i expect they are more expensive than bulk buying a cheaper brand.

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

Yes I would although I mainly use cloth nappies in the day

I tried these nappies in size 4 on DS aged 7 months.

Q1 Overall impression is positive - these are slim and absorbent, they did not leak, I had terrible trouble with Huggies leaking and I had to change my sons wet clothes all the time so I had switched to Asda's Little Angels which I am very happy with.

Q2
These are great, meant I didn't have a soaking wet baby and sleeping bag in the morning, no need to change his nappy during the night unless it had been soiled.

Q3
These are more expensive than supermarket own brand so I would buy these when they are on special offer.

Q4
Yes I would recommend these nappies

gavandlou Wed 08-May-13 20:54:40

I tried Size 3 on my 3 month old
Q1
My overall impression was that the Baby Dry nappies were really good, no leakage, used throughout the day and night, stretchy fastenings on the side allow to make tighter or looser on your baby. Nice design.

Q2
I've tried another supermarket brand and these leaked when my baby wore them, also I found they didn't hold as much wee as the Baby Dry. I like the Baby Dry nappies as they have much more stretchiness than other nappies.

Q3
I think the Mega-Box and Giga-Box are value for money, but the carry packs seem costly and not appealing

Q4
I would definitely recommend Pampers Baby Dry to other mums as a good quality nappy available on the market.

mrsannekins Wed 08-May-13 21:10:55

Tried size 4 on DD (16 months)

1) Pampers are my preferred brand, DD has expensive tastes and is prone to a rashy bum, and pampers seem to keep it at bay quite nicely.

2) No problems with leakage, DD continues to sleep well through the night with them, and they seem to be resisting her attempts to pull them down like big girl pants.

3) Although on paper, they do appear more expensive than other brands, I think they are more economical in the long run. I also try and buy the big boxes when they are on offer in the supermarket baby events which keeps the cost down. Plus DD gets the boxes to play with.

4) I'm definitely a pampers mum, everyone gets to hear about how happy we are with them!

Thanks for letting us try them x

StormPie Wed 08-May-13 21:24:07

Size 4 tried and my son is 20 months (but has a slim waist!)

Q1
I thought they were very lightweight, strong and easy to put on the baby

Q2
Well they didn't leak which was a surprise because last time I used them they did leak at night, so I'm a bit flummoxed to tell you the truth! I do definitely prefer the feel of them to supermarket own brand ones because they are less bulky out of the packet.

Q3
More expensive, but I think if you shop around you can probably get them for about the same price as own brand ones and to be honest, if they are the best for the job a small price difference wouldn't put me off.

Q4
I just don't know! I think I need to use them a bit longer (a month or so) because my results with them have been so mixed prior to this trial.

I tested size 4 nappies on my 14-month-old.

Q1
I was impressed with the nappies - no leaks of wee or poo, and dry-feeling skin when the nappy was removed in the morning. I would use them again, in particular if they were on offer (but I tend to buy nappies during baby events etc anyway and stock up - can always exchange unopened packs for a larger sized nappy later if necessary). No noticeable nappy rash.

Q2
The Pampers nappies were better than other nappies that I have tried. I would now continue to use Pampers at night now (unless of course my son changes size/shape and the fit isn't so good) because other brands that I habitually buy aren't as reliable.

Q3
Pampers are more expensive than other brands and I do try to buy the cheapest nappies that we are comfortable with - but with fewer leaks I think it's worth paying a bit extra for them - and as mentioned earlier I buy them when they are on offer.

Q4
I would absolutely recommend the nappies to other parents. They might not work for everyone but I think they are definitely worth trying.

Valbuster85 Wed 08-May-13 22:04:46

I tested the size 4 pampers nappies on my 4 month old son. I am extremely pleased with the results. I originally used Huggies as they are cheaper etc.

Pampers are more flexible and do not leak. They also fit much better as I have a big boy and any other brand I have tried in this size just don't deem as good quality.

There are cheaper alternatives but in the long run, better quality and last longer.

SamraLee Wed 08-May-13 22:07:59

Q1 I thought the nappies worked well. They contained everything and were great for the whole night. They are thinner and less bulky which is important to me as my daughter is starting to walk and move around a lot. As an added bonus, I find this to be the most adorable nappy, so bright and colorful.

Q2 I haven't noticed any difference as far as leaking, my daughter has very rarely had a leaky nappy even though I've used different kinds/brands of nappies.

Q3 I think they are competitively priced for the quality you are getting.

Q4 I would definately recommend these nappies. They are excellent at keeping my baby girl dry. They are soft and she can move around in them. They are also so cute. I also think they are a good price. Something I thought was really good about these nappies is that my daughter is teething (both of her top teeth) right now and her nappy rash is much less severe than it was previously (both of her bottom teeth) and I think these nappies have helped with it.

Timyd Wed 08-May-13 22:16:36

I tried size 4 on my son.
Well we had some problem with leakage as mostly his poop was running out from the nappy but maybe it is because he is teething at the moment.For the wee was perfect.It is an expensive nappy but I will buy buy a few packs when there is some offers on.
Happy to recommend to other mums.

PolkaDotCups Wed 08-May-13 23:56:41

My DD is just under 8 months old and just under 18lbs. We are trying size 4.

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

My first impression was that they were smaller than other size 4 nappies, including other Pampers. They are nice and thin though which I really like, especially when stocking up my changing bag as it made it less bulky. On a superficial note they were the cutest nappies I've used too. My husband has made up rhymes for the characters!

Overall we've had no leaks which is good, especially as she is quite active and kicks around a lot at night.

If all nappies were priced the same I would choose these every time based on look, fit and performance.

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

Very well. We had no leaks with them. I've used Aldi, Tesco, Asda, Huggies, Sainsburys nappies in the past and have sometimes found her back was damp where she kicks her feet up a lot but haven't had that issue with these (or the Sainsburys own brand ones).

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 can work out a lot more expensive and I tend to try and buy at 14p a nappy or less. You've not put a unit price down so it is hard to judge on the information given. I will buy these when there is an offer as I do prefer them (and some cheap ones like the Asda ones I'll avoid on performance issues, the Asda ones leaked horribly for me). However I'm not sure they warrant the price difference that there is currently.

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, on performance I think they are very good. As mentioned I especially like that they aren't bulky. I'd probably only recommend when I had seen an offer about for them though. I think the Pampers ones in the orange packaging are equally good and these are cheaper.

PapsyRabbit Thu 09-May-13 01:23:49

Baby boy 4months 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?

I am very impressed with pampers baby dry they are very stretchy, cute unisex design, super absorbent and stays fairly thin when wet. In the last 2 weeks the nappy has leaked poo twice at the leg but then my son is very active and always kicking his legs, I have found that the nappy is very absorbent and allows me to leave my baby to sleep soundly until morning, they have not given my son any sort of nappy rash dispute him being left in the nappy all night and it leaves his skin feeling dry even when soaked. I have always used pampers and am so happy with these nappies I will continue to use them.

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

They were fantastic, I've always used pampers apart from the odd free sample. I was very pleased with the dryness and leakage 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?

I think the cost is very reasonable, especially when you don't have to disturb your little ones sleep to change their nappy all 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?

Definitely! It doesn't have to come up in convocation I've already been telling my friends to try them! I've also changed my monthly amazon subscription to receive a giga box of these nappies now!

Using the nappies on ds2 aged 17 months, size 4.

First impressions are they are soft and quite thin, with nice, bright pictures

I'm not particularly brand loyal, and find they compare ok with others we've used. So far they haven't leaked. I do think they have a bit of a smell when they are quite full though, but I've only noticed this so far first thing in the morning.

The prices are a bit hard to work out as you don't say how many are in each sized pack (I know out also depends on the size of the nappy). I know generally Pampers are expensive, but BabyDry are cheaper than the ActiveFit. I think the price its ok, and you do get a reliable nappy.

If it came up in conversation, I probably would recommend them (but my friends generally have no children, or older children, so we don't talk about nappies).

FattyMcChubster Thu 09-May-13 07:34:09

My dd is 11 months and I tried size 4.

My overall impressions were good. I liked the nappies and I would use them again as they kept baby dry, felt soft on her skin and I had confidence in them.

They felt a lot softer than other nappies I have tried. They protected well against leaks even through the night. Through the day they kept baby feeling dry it was only after 12 hours sleep her skin seemed a little damp but no redness or rash. We had no leaks.

I don't think they're value for money unfortunately. I love pampers and if they're on offer I will buy them but otherwise I'd go for aldi. The aldi are not as soft but perform almost as well and are half price and when you're a SAHM, thats a lot of money!

I would always recommend pampers for the quality of the nappy, just not the price.

The designs are cute but I wouldn't mind them being a little less bright, I hate seeing her nappy through her clothes especially now it's summer and clothes are lighter.
The designs all seem quite 'boyish' too.

Bigos Thu 09-May-13 07:52:30

Q1
I thought they were great. I used size 3s on my DD2 (4months). There was on poonami incident where a tiny bit of poo got out the side and leaked onto her vest, but that was it. The rest of the time she was dry and comfortable and I never had to change her during the night, nor did she get nappy rash.
Q2
I always use Pampers so know they're really reliable. On the odd occasion I've bought cheaper brands I've always regretted it as end up having to do more frequent changes.
Q3
Yes they are more expensive but the reliability makes it worth the premium. With 2 DCs under 2 I no longer have the time/inclination to check out which supermarket has a deal on; I now get them delivered monthly from Amazon which takes out all the hassle.
Q4
Yes definitely.

Ombanker Thu 09-May-13 09:04:45

Please state the age of your baby/child and the size of nappy you were trying in your response.
Baby is coming up to four months old and tried 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?
Thinner than the usual brand and type of nappies used (Pampers New Baby). Appealing design. Good fit - felt slightly more flexible around the legs than New Baby, although this could be because they are a thinner design. No adverse skin reactions and the slight chemical smell on opening the packet disappeared quite quickly.

Q2 How did they compare with other nappies you've used in terms of dryness and leakage protection?
The New Baby ones have a wetness indicator and I thought I'd miss this, but it's easy to tell that there's been an event with Baby-Dry as the nappy itself feels squishy. No leakage problems thus far - Baby tested this last night with a nine hour sleep stretch with no problems. New Baby, by contrast, would probably have held up but would have caused Baby to wake up due to the discomfort of a full nappy.

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?
Costwise these are the same as New Baby for the size tested so no significant change for me. I do think they are good value for money - they work as advertised, the design is quite nice and most importantly, my baby is comfortable and happy.

Q4 If it came up in conversation, would you recommend Pampers Baby-Dry nappies to other parents? If so, why? If not, why not?
Absolutely. They may be more expensive than a supermarket's own brand but you are paying for a better quality and more reliable nappy.

yummymummy051011 Thu 09-May-13 09:16:59

Q1 What was your overall impression of Pampers Baby-Dry nappies?

Pampers are a brilliant nappy. Fab night-time protection. Will use pampers again and again. Very happy customer

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

They are in a different league to similar nappies. I have tried all of them and never found a better nappy than Pampers

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?

Yes very good value for money. Can't beat quality

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. Pampers all the way smile

loreire Thu 09-May-13 09:53:15

I used size 3 on my 6 month old son, pampers baby dry have been great i find them very absorbant as opposed to huggies which are like cardboard but i only use them during the day.....
I also use pampers if i am going out shopping or know i will be out for a few hours as i know they wont leak, i will be sticking to pampers from now on as i am so happy with the protection no changing in the night and still dry in the morning....the only thing is the outside of the nappy does get very damp even with one or 2 wee's it can feel very full.
I have never paid full price for pampers there is always a special on in one of the supermarkets so i do think they are fab value while on special, full price is a bit much for boxes over 30 euro in tesco!!

loreire Thu 09-May-13 10:16:37

would recommend these nappies to everyone....
Also wonder if pampers would think of boy/girl nappies??
gender spacific nappies are great as boys need more front protection and girls require more in the lower section of the nappy.
Huggies do this in australia (no pampers in oz) and it works great!

Glitterfairys Thu 09-May-13 10:23:25

I tried Pampers size 3 with my 19 week old ds and was very impressed. They are a better quality and have a softer feel to them and not like a carrier bag feel that some nappies have.
There has been no leakage whatsoever and that includes the 12 hour overnight test . Other supermarket brands I have tried there is no way that he would of still been dry 12 hours later so Pampers Is great for that as I didn't need to disturb ds to change his nappy in night .
I don't think they are overly expensive for nappies , I don't mind paying more of it ensures baby is kept dry at night .
I would definitely recommend as a great nappy and I will continue to use them in the future .

wutheringalice Thu 09-May-13 10:44:41

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

We've used Pampers pretty much solidly since D was born six months ago. I've always been happy with them and, even when we were given other brands of nappies, we've always gone back to Pampers!

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

They do seem to do the job much better than other brands we've tried- even when trying other brands, we've used Pampers at night. They just work much better over a longer period of time. Now that D is getting more active, they seem to be coping with that quite well too!

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?
We tend to buy big boxes, so that we get the best value possible. But overall, yes, I think they are worth the money!

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- quite simply, they have worked the best for us and continue to do so!

Bobyn Thu 09-May-13 11:12:40

I tried size 3 and my baby is 13 weeks old.

Q1 What was your overall impression of Pampers Baby-Dry nappies?
I thought this were flexible and soft and thought they would be comfortable for my baby. They were also quite thin which I liked so she can move her legs freely in them.

Q2 How did they compare with other nappies you've used in terms of dryness and leakage protection?
They were absorbent and didn't leak once. They didn't cause any rashes and seemed to keep her bottom dry all day and night. At night she's in them for 12 hours so we were impressed.

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?
The costs seem high in comparison to supermarket nappies but I think the prices are worth it for the quality. Especially if they are bought when there is an offer on them.

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 think they are a good nappy and I would definitely use them again and recommend to other Mums.

Samichuboo Thu 09-May-13 12:06:38

Q1
We tried the size 4 on our 11m DD. She is quiet tall so fitted length wise but would have to pull them up high to fit properly around the leg, otherwise we were happy with them and they did the job.

Q2
Unfortunately DD had a poorly tummy at time of testing, i dont think any more detail then that is neccessary! Nappies kept her dry all night but were unable to contain any explosions!

Q3
Cost is reasonable although supermarket brands tend to be cheaper, but when they are on offer they can be good value. We also use reusable nappies, so during the tummy it was much more practical and easier to use disposables.

Q4
I would recomend them to other parents as they kept DD bottom dry all night, they seemed comfortable as she was able to crawl and climb around at ease.

Lindaconran Thu 09-May-13 12:07:44

Q1 Pampers Baby Dry are they only nappies I use for my 7 month old... have tried all other brands and types and have found that these are the only ones that keep him dry during the night and they don't leak.

Q2 There is no comparison when it comes to dryness and leak protection.... they keep him completely dry from when he goes to bed at 7pm and he doesn't get changed again till 7-8am. I have been using them for months and they have never leaked.

Q3 I think that compared to some other own brand nappies they are more expensive, but they are worth it. They are not too expensive, and I find that most supermarkets tend to have the big boxes on special offer most of the time and this makes them very affordable.

Q4 Yes I would definatley recommend them... they are by far the best nappy on the market.

elpth Thu 09-May-13 12:22:22

Tried size 3 on my four month old daughter.

Q1 What was your overall impression of Pampers Baby-Dry nappies? Would you use them again? If so, why? If not, why not?
Overall good impression and impressed with how much they hold. However this seems to be due to the chemicals used in them to lock away the wet and they really smell. Plus I wonder what that level of chemical is doing to my baby's bum.

Q2 How did they compare with other nappies you've used in terms of dryness and leakage protection?
Very well. There is frequent leakage of poo but that seems to be common with pre weaned babies in all disposables.

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've only bought them in large boxes on "2 for" deals and wouldn't want to pay full price as they are very pricey.

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 had them recommended to me and if I continue to use disposables, I will probably continue to use and recommend them. However, I am looking into using reusables as I think these are better for my baby, better for the environment and cheaper. I also hear that reusables actually contain poo explosions so I'm optimistic!

MrsTaylor1 Thu 09-May-13 12:22:42

So far i am finding Pampers Baby Dry a really great nappy for my baby, he wriggles such a lot and although i was trying him with the active fit style of Pampers i'm finding the absorbency of Baby Dry much better, he sleeps throughfrom anywhere between 10/11pm to 8/9am the next morning, the nappy to me feels full but it doesn't bother him.
I will carry on using them as i have them to be the best nappy used on him so far for absorbency and fit

MrsTaylor1 Thu 09-May-13 12:23:58

Tried size 3 on my 9 and a half month old son, that size because he was 10 weeks premature so is a lot smaller than the majority of his peers

Hayleyford17 Thu 09-May-13 12:53:33

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 tested size 3 Pampers baby-dry nappies on my 4 month old little girl. She is my first child so have tried all different nappies to find the best. I will deffinatly be sticking to these nappies in the future. They are very comforable & soft and have great absorbancy especially as she is teething and sleeping on average 12 hours per night.

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

They compare very well with other brands as others have leaked in the past which is of great annoyance when out and about. I dont have to worry with Pampers baby-dry.

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 Pampers baby-dry are good value for money. They might be a little dearer than other brands but are better for protection. They look and feel nicer than other brands. I would rather pay a little more for a better product.

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 deffinatley recommend these nappies to other parents as they are overall better value for money

PaddingtonsMarmalade Thu 09-May-13 13:37:46

Size 4 nappies
DS is 21 months - probably about to go up a size

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

I would use these again especially for overnight use. I will try to use Pampers all the time anyway as I trust them the most and neither of my kids have ever reacted to them or had bad nappy rash. Sometimes though I will have to buy cheaper supermarket brands but I will only use Pampers at night. I haven't found any other nappy that doesn't leak when on all night so it's just another way of tryng to get more sleep. I think they well designed, slim, not garish designs and smell fine, hold together well when full, easy to pack n changing bags and easy to find in the shops.

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

They are the best for dryness and leakage protection that I've ever used and have had kids in nappies now for 6 years and been happy to try other brands.

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're good for when you really need the leakage protecton - at night. But there are cheaper (the Pampers Simply Dry I think are v good value for money) - the cheaper ones though are sometimes much thicker and I think less comfortable for kids so I try not to use those.

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

Definitely would recommend Pampers and have done to family members/friends who've had babies after me.

mum2our4 Thu 09-May-13 13:40:37

My baby is 6mths old and I tried 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?

I loved the nappies. The nappies have a great feel to them, no plastic feel like some other nappies, and the designs are cute. They are not bulky and were great at keeping baby dry through the night. Overall these are my favourite nappies so far and I will continue to use them and would definitely recommend to other parents.

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

I think the nappies are great at keeping baby dry but I did experience some leaking. I have not found a nappy yet that can withstand breastfed baby poo all the time. When they did leak it was out of the leg, which was surprising because they always seemed snug around the leg sometimes leaving some markings. Again, these were still better than other nappies I have tried.

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?

Overall Pampers do seem to cost more than other nappies but the feel of the nappy and the long lasting dryness is worth paying a little more for.

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 these to other parents.

MummyKnight Thu 09-May-13 13:44:43

I used size 3 nappies on my 6 month old
Q1. I am really impressed with these nappies, they keep her dry and comfortable all night long. I will definitely be using again, in fact I've just brought a box of 124!! If I could make one improvement though it would be to add a wetness indicator like on the new baby nappies, this would benefit my daughters daddy and nanny who sometimes aren't sure if she's wet or not because they don't change her as often as I do.

Q2. They are much better than other nappies I've tried, nice and soft, keep her dry all night and contain almost all poo's (except for the most explosive ones but I doubt anything could contain them!)

Q3. I think they are good value for such good quality, even better when they are on special offer.

Q4. I would definitely recommend these to others, they are without a doubt the best nappies we have tried and we've tried a lot!!

Starsintheskyxx Thu 09-May-13 13:44:57

DS is 7 months old and we used size 4.

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. They kept DS dry for the 13 hours he sleeps for at night. Very good quality.

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

He has leaked through the night with another brand and stayed completely dry and leak free for the whole night with Pampers.

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?

Pampers are more expensive than other brands especially supermarket own brands but I think you are paying for the quality so I am happy to pay the price highlighted above to know that he will stay dry and comfortable through the 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?

Yes I would for sure. Its peace of mind and a peaceful nights sleep for everyone!

Florin Thu 09-May-13 13:50:02

I tried the size 4 nappies on my very chunky 10 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?
I thought they fitted well, kept my baby dry even though he sleeps for 13 hours a night he wasn't damp at all. Not bulky and pretty designs

Q2 How did they compare with other nappies you've used in terms of dryness and leakage protection?
Good driest I have found and no leaks

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?
Yes because they last a long time so you use less of them. I am happy to pay a premium for nappies I can trust, I really hate risking 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?
Yes because they are great nappies and good for my baby

NoRoomForMeInMyBed Thu 09-May-13 13:50:44

Q1 What was your overall impression of Pampers Baby-Dry nappies? Would you use them again? If so, why? If not, why not?
They are good quality, well packed and not too bad for excess packaging. (not sure why the extra plastic wrap is needed in the multi packs) I would definitly use them again! They smell natural and feel soft and comfortable to touch.

Q2 How did they compare with other nappies you've used in terms of dryness and leakage protection? For boys the boys have never leaked in pampers, but my girl leaks at the front when she sleeps on her tummy. I have trialled a bigger size and so far she has not leaked at all so thats good. She is still in the weight range for the smaller size.

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 if you think of the washing and aggro you would get with a lesser brand. With the boys they never leaked in pampers so it was peace of mind that I wouldnt have to get up and change bedding at night (we are cosleepers so it means changing the WHOLE bed...)

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 definitly for the peace of mind factor. Other brands feel different, Huggies feel like kitchen roll on the skin for example, Pampers are truly baby soft!

Sorry forgot to say my baby is a small 11 month old and we tried size 4 nappies.

abigailw Thu 09-May-13 14:09:34

Q1 I would be happy to use Pampers baby dry again
Q2 Pampers baby dry are a far more superior nappy to other brands we have tried. Although Im not sure whether its the current nappy batch or a requirement to go to another size as our daughter has just started to leak through
Q3 Given that Pampers baby dry have been the best for nighttime dryness this outweighs the higher price. I would prefer the nappy price to be 10p each and alwasy look for others to get the best deal when buying in conjunction with baby events
Q4 I would recommend Pampers baby dry

Please state the age of your baby/child and the size of nappy you were trying in your response.

I tried size three on my four and a half 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?

Overall I'm very impressed. I would use them again.

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

They feel good, softer and more flexible than some other brands. They keep him dry for a long time even overnight and only leak with a major explosion. I'd expect any nappy to leak under those circumstances. I've also used active fit on my older child which were much less reliable.

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 good value because I use less of them and I don't worry about them leaking or causing nappy rash. One less thing to worry about.

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 but I am a bit confused by the different new born options on offer. I'm not sure why there are the new baby ones as well as the baby dry ones in the same sizes??

iclaudius Thu 09-May-13 15:16:01

I was just looking at them really intently and looking at the dots on the front - I think they look quite tacky ... A nice smooth white cotton looking front world be nicer on my opinion. There's enough going on above it with animals etc so I'd definitely leave it plain

horseylady Thu 09-May-13 15:39:10

DS 6 months old, size 3 nappies tried

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, ds woke up with no leaks and his skin was dry to touch when the nappy was removed. He was also able to move around quite happily in them and there was no sign of any redness or soreness.There was no concern that if he would wake up wet in the night. I would definately use them again.

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

I have had issues with other brands leaking and not lasting as long as pampers during the day. Other nappies do no seem quite so absorbant. I would use no other nappy 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 slightly more expensive than other nappies, but knowing they work means I would continue to use them. Plus there are generally offers on the nappies as well, so I tend to buy in bulk.

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 and do recommend these nappies to other people. His skin has never been damp using these nappies and they have never leaked while using them.

Please state the age of your baby/child and the size of nappy you were trying in your response. 20 weeks old size 3

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

very impressed they are even better than before ill be looking out for deals to buy these in future rather that simply dry and cheeky bums. They keep my daughter much drier and therefore more comfortable, she often fusses for a change quickly after doing a wee but doesn't at all in pampers baby dry.

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

dryness is fantastic. she's never leaked but these do seem a far neater fit.

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?Q

they aren't the cheapest option but the overall quality of the fit and dryness therefore her comfort makes them well worth paying that few pounds extra.

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

highly recommend them as my daughters far happier in them i don't have to use as many she sleeps longer and the fits good.

Aldan Thu 09-May-13 16:18:00

DS is 9 weeks and we used a size 3 nappy

1. We had 2 accidents in them where they didn't contain the poo, maybe because he's only 9 weeks and is breast fed. But we haven't had any accidents with new baby nappies. Probably wont use them again for a while.

2. As stated above they were the worst we have used for containing poo but just urine they were good.

3. Comparable cost with others pampers so yes decent value.

4. I wouldn't recommend them to mums with babies of DSs age.

I tried size 4 and the nappies had a lovely fit and were nice and slim, no leaks at all in fact an all round great product, the design was also very cute.
My only criticism is they are a little bit on the expensive side.

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

I would use them again, my son is a heavy wetter and we had no leaks at all, he stayed dry and comfortable at all times. The fit was great and they were lovely and slim which made it easier for him to move around.

Q2 How did they compare with other nappies you've used in terms of dryness and leakage protection?
I can't fault them, my son was perfectly dry at all times an no leaks whatsoever.

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 must admit as much as I love them they are a little bit expensive, especially as I have tried other nappies that are cheaper that have been just as 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 based on performance but as I said... a little bit pricey in an economy where we are having to make every penny count.

i have tried size 4 nappies for my nine old month son
i was very impressed with them. my son goes to sleep at nine and doesnt wake till ten the next day and the nappy would be full when he wakes but never leaked. they were able to hold alot. i find them exspensive but always seem to be on offer in one of the stores at different times but are well worth paying the extra money for a dry baby.
i would recommend to anybody having a new baby definetly.

MrsAmberRose Thu 09-May-13 16:57:22

Please state the age of your baby/child and the size of nappy you were trying in your response.

My baby is 4 months old and we tried 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?

Very good. Both me and DD very happy. I will definitely be buying again.

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

I was really impressed. Changing my baby's nappy in the night wakes her up but with the baby dry nappies I found she stayed dry overnight which makes a huge difference to her sleeping patterns. Other nappies leak halfway through the night so can't be left.

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?

Yes because you only need one nappy for an extended period so the pack lasts much longer than normal nappies.

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 have already recommended!

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

these nappies in my opinion are the best out there. they kept my son's skin dry even with a full nappy. i would most definitely use them again

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

these surpassed the current one i used. cos they left wetness on his skin and sometimes burst. he does drink alot of water

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?it is. not much difference

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 yes, it is super dry.

Sebsdebs1 Thu 09-May-13 17:23:43

I tried the size 4 on my 7 month old daughter and was very impressed

Q1
Would definitely use again - great product!
Q2
Haven't had a leak so really good compared to other brands
However I do change my baby's nappy quite often.

Q3
Nappies in general are stupidly expensive however I do find these good value and definitely good for my sanity as a type of insurance against leakages.
Q4
Would definitely recommend as I have found them very effective.

2blessed Thu 09-May-13 17:42:56

I tested the size 3 nappies on my 4 month old DS.

1) I was impressed with these nappies. Leakage only tended to happen after serious poo-nami's. I would use them again for sure. They are lightweight but seem to be very absorbent and do not cause any irritation to my DS' skin.

2) I've only used two other types of nappies in addition to baby dry and baby dry was not the brand that I had to abandon a box half way through a packet of 68 due to their ineffectiveness at keeping DS dry!

3) They are good value. Yes, slightly more expensive than other brands but worth it in my opinion for the dryness. It means less stained clothing which works for me!

4) I would recommend this product to other parents/carers.

Michfell Thu 09-May-13 17:51:16

I tried the size 3 baby dry nappies for my 18 week old.

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

My little girl has been going through the night for a while now and the only thing that will wake her is a wet uncomfortable nappy ! She slept the whole 11 hours last night and I must say they are very absorbent the best I have tried yet and we have tried loads of different brands.

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

As I said on previous question we have tried a lot of different brands and none compare to the quality of this nappy the extra layer really makes a difference and very soft for baby's skin.

Q3 We've included some info on how much Pampers Baby-Dry nappies cost - are they good value for money?

Even though they are slightly more expensive than what I pay at the moment I wouldn't hesitate in buying them as they as they are the best nappy I have tried but I'll keep an eye out for a bargain on them on the baby events in the supermarkets :-)

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

Yes I would highly recommend them, I know a few other mums in our baby group who are always complaining about certain nappies causing baby nappy rash or leakage of the nappy so I can now tell them about this product.

mummytoMalachi Thu 09-May-13 18:08:12

I tried size 4 on my 21mth old son.

I love pampers, I have always used Pampers after trying other brands and having serious leaks due to a poor fit.

I used Acti-fit and now Pull ups during the day and the Baby Dry for nighttime. I believe they are the reason he rarely has nappy rash and have become a nappy snob! I believe any nappy which keeps my son happy and healthy is value for money.

I am happy to keep using them and often recommend them.

Thank you for the free samples

Tillyamy Thu 09-May-13 18:17:40

I used size 4 nappies on my 7 month old boy.

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 pampers - i already use them as my son's nighttime nappy as i know he wont leak and he wont get nappy rash. I will carry on using them for nighttime but they are a little expensive to use for daytime nappies which are changed more frequently

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

They kept my son's bum dry for 12 hours and i haven't had any leakages.

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?

The nappies are a little on the expensive side but i will continue to use them at nighttime when i need my son's bum to be protected against wetness and the leakage protection is excellent.

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 them... if you can afford them! they are just a little bit too expensive for me to use as a daytime nappy.

I tried the size 4 nappies on my 20 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?

Over all, they look pretty (nice images on them) and they worked well, but I didn't like the way they felt. However strange this sounds, they felt plasticy (sp?) to me. They also felt a little gritty to me.

I would use them again, but they wouldn't be my first choice because of the way they felt.

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

Fantastic! They were brilliant. My son drinks loads and we often have a hit-or-miss moment in the morning because of the long night time. This hasn't been the case with these nappies. It was brilliant!

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'd say they were about right to be honest. I think they are really good nappies and i'm happy to use them, but I wouldn't pay anything more for them.

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 think I would, especially if they have a baby like mine! Constantly drinking smile I would tell them about how it feels. I was telling a friend about it feeling plasticy and she agreed, but it wouldn't be a consideration for her.

My lo is 6mnths and wears size 3

Q1 What was your overall impression of Pampers Baby-Dry nappies? Would you use them again? If so, why? If not, why not?
Amazing! Ive used pampers baby dry since my daughter was 3wks (as thats when she started sleeping through the night) with previous other brands they wouldnt last. Ive never had a pampers baby dry leak. My daughter at the moment goes from 7pm till 9am and the nappy dosent leak she also sometimes wakes up has a poop and it still contains everything.

Q2 How did they compare with other nappies you've used in terms of dryness and leakage protection?
As I stated above there is no comparison. I used a variety of brands when my daughter started sleeping through, most of which leaked and I had to change half way through the night. However ive never had this issue with pampers.

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 always buy the jumbo multi packs when they are on offer at either tesco or asda. Normally 2 for £20. The two boxes last a few months and buy that time there usually another offer on. As for the full price it wouldnt bother me paying it as its for a product that works!

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

My sister is law is due to have a baby and I raved about your pampers baby dry. This is her 3rd child and had previously used pampers although back when she used them they used to leak. I told her about ellie and never having a leak abd shes gona give them another go. I would defo recommend them to anyone.

Rachel2303 Thu 09-May-13 19:29:06

I've been testing the size 3 on my 5 month old LB.
Quite impressed with them,had no major leaks overnight yet.
His skin still feels dry in the morning even when the nappy's been really full!
I've tried lots of other brands,own name nappies,pampers simply dry,asda little angels,also mania, these ones are effective but quite expensive in comparison.
Would recommend as a product that does what it's supposed to do,however I do feel they are overpriced.

flutterbynight Thu 09-May-13 19:30:46

I've been trying the size 4 nappies on DS who is 6 months.

I liked the baby-dry nappies, they had an attractive design and didn't smell chemically like some others I have used. I would use them again as there were no leakages using them for 12 hours overnight which is impressive, though we did have a couple of poo leaks when using them in the day.

The nappies compared favourably with others I have used for leakage protection overnight but less well for keeping poos within the bounds of the nappy. I also noticed that when using them overnight for 12 hours they were quite damp next to DS' skin, but that is still preferable to leaking out over babygro/sleeping bag and disturbing his sleep.

I think the baby-dry nappies are reasonable value for money but would probably try to buy them on offer, or in bulk and would perhaps stick to using them for nighttime and simply-dry for daytime as I haven't had the poo leakage issues with simply-dry (but this may just be a poo-heavy week and not a real reflection on the nappies!)

If it came up in conversation I would recommend Pampers baby-dry nappies to other parents as I think they offer a good level of protection against leakages at night and that isn't always easy to come by in a nappy. I also like the design and feel of the nappy - it seems softer than some others I have used and doesn't have a chemically smell.

Aldi mamia! Lol.predictive txt...

missorinoco Thu 09-May-13 20:09:28

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

Liked the nappy. Material not scratchy, DC likes the tiger on it. I would use them again.

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

No problems with leakage and skin dry. DC is a heavy wetter, and on occasion when he wakes the nappy is heavy, but this one hasn't leaked.

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?

Difficult. I haven't tried a huge variety of cheaper brands, the ones I have I have disliked as the tabs rip easily, wasting the nappy, or the leaked. I haven't tried brands like Aldi, so it is a small comparison. The value for me is that I buy nappies in bulk from Boots online, which is better value, free delivery and Boots points. I would therefore buy these again, but mainly planned in bulk due to cost.

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.

Judyandherdreamofhorses Thu 09-May-13 20:15:26

I've been using size 4 with my 10 month old DS

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

Felt much softer and less papery than the supermarket ones I'd just been using. Sweet designs. Nice and slim fitting. They didn't leak over night and baby's skin wasn't wet in the morning. He's prone to nappy rash - these don't seem to be making it either worse or better.

I'll definitely be using them again, until they stop keeping him dry I suppose.

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

I found that Pampers Active Fit in size 3 leaked overnight, but once I moved into size 4 (Pampers and supermarket own brand), we had no leakages.

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?

Obviously I'd rather they were cheaper! I'll be buying them though, as I do like them a lot more than the supermarket ones. They feel so much nicer, even on my hands, so must feel nicer on the baby's bottom. I will look for money-off vouchers and supermarket discounts though.

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 say that I'd used and liked them. I suppose that's a recommendation. I don't really try to influence others' choices in consumer products though.

The 'golden sleep' claim/ suggestion means nothing to me. My baby wakes frequently, every night. It is never due to a wet nappy and these nappies have made no difference. I didn't expect them to, so am not disappointed.

gilliancd Thu 09-May-13 20:15:44

I tried the size 4 nappies and overall impression was good, they kept my daughter dry and happy. They compare well to other nappies ( except a certain supermarkets which always leak) but I usually use pampers simply dry, and to be honest unless they were on offer I would not pay more for the baby dry nappies as I can't see much difference in the performance.
I would recommend baby dry nappies to other mums, though I'm not sure they are the best value for money.

Willyn Thu 09-May-13 20:21:42

I used size 4 on my 11 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? - I'm very happy with them. We had been using asda's own nappies which were fine but these are much softer and less bulky in comparison. We will be using them again.

Q2 How did they compare with other nappies you've used in terms of dryness and leakage protection? - We had tried pampers active fit previously but I don't find they are sufficiently absorbent, particularly with poo which seems always to spill up the back (sorry!). My son's skin has always been dry each time I've changed his nappy with the pampers baby dry and we've not had any nappy rash either which had been a problem with the asda nappies.

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 very expensive and not good value for money unless they are on offer (having said that ive just bought a mega pack which was on offer) My son tends to have several dirty nappies a day so unlike other mums we can't reduce our nappy usage to improve cost-effectiveness even though the baby-dry nappies are more absorbent as I obviously wont leave him with a dirty nappy on.

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 - they are soft, kind to baby's delicate skin, very absorbent and don't smell too chemically. I would always recommend shopping around to get them on offer though!

Cassie80 Thu 09-May-13 20:27:06

Q1 What was your overall impression of Pampers Baby-Dry nappies? Would you use them again? If so, why? If not, why not?
Love them...tried another brand with both my sons as newborns....only for a day each, was sick of the clothes changes due to leakage! I trust baby dry 99% of the time! 1% no nappy could hold!

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

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....but I'd shop about and bulk buy so I can afford them!

Q4 If it came up in conversation, would you recommend Pampers Baby-Dry nappies to other parents? If so, why? If not, why not?
Defiantly! They feel softer than any other brand and yet still do an amazing job!

KirstieAllsop Thu 09-May-13 20:33:35

Q1 What was your overall impression of Pampers Baby-Dry nappies? Would you use them again? If so, why? If not, why not?
Thin and soft. Nice designs. Quite absorbent. Would use again, they seem quite comfortable for my son.

Q2 How did they compare with other nappies you've used in terms of dryness and leakage protection?
They were fine. No leaks.

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?
Not as cheap as supermarket brands obviously, but the quality does seem better so if you are willing to pay a bit more then they are worth it.

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, especially as night time nappies as they seem to hold quite a lot of wee.

SomethingAboutNothing Thu 09-May-13 20:35:26

I sampled the size 4 nappies on my 8 month old son.

Q1 Overall impression is good, they are nice and soft and don't feel cheap. Pictures on them are fine. I would use them again.

Q2 the nappies are by far the best I have used for dryness.

Q3 I don't think the prices are particularly good value, however I am prepared to pay them for the quality of the product. I also tend to stock up when they are on offer.

Q4 Yes I would recommend Pampers Baby-Dry nappies.

annapiechura Thu 09-May-13 20:43:48

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: really nice design, soft feel, like the flaps and fasteners.
Definitely will be using them again. Keep my baby dry all night. My 4 month old goes sleep at 18:30pm and waking up dry until 6 am. I am sure they could even last longer than 12 hours. Like them also because the moisture dissipates through whole nappy and not make it bulky in just one place.

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

Because It is my first baby I have always stick to Pampers brand as I believe it is the best. I have been given few Huggies nappies and did not like them at all. Pampers in my Opinion are far much better then Huggies in terms of everything, especially dryness and leakage protection. I don't not have to change them that often and overall design is much better which make much better fit for your baby.

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 dearer than other nappies but I believe you are paying for the quality you are getting. And as few people mentioned before, you do not need to change them that often and they snug fit.

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

Definitely will recommend them as I believe they are really good, reliable keep your baby dry all night, and also have perfect fit. No need to wake up your baby to change a nappy and worrying that its wet. Also I have always have been using Pampers and my baby newer ever had any nappy rash.

My Baby is 4,2 months old and I use Pampers Baby dry size 3 and Pampers active fit size 3 .

c00k1e Thu 09-May-13 20:51:26

I used size 4, little girl is 9 months old.

1) I was very impressed with them. Very soft and seemed to have a lot of flexibility so were comfortable. You could tell they were good quality. I would use them again.

2) No leaks to report of. Held everything in no wee leaks at all. Lasted 12 hours no problem.

3) Are expensive but then again I do believe it is worth it as nappies seem very high quality.

4) Yes, I would recommend to others.

JodieJones Thu 09-May-13 20:54:05

I have used the size 4 nappies on my 6 month old son. I have had no leaks and have found them really soft and a comfortable fit. I will buy these again, especially when on offer!!

tinapower Thu 09-May-13 21:02:01

Q1 What was your overall impression of Pampers Baby-Dry nappies? Would you use them again? If so, why? If not, why not?
I find pampers baby dry nappies overall very good, compared to other brands of nappies, there is less leaks and very snuggly fitted to baby

Q2 How did they compare with other nappies you've used in terms of dryness and leakage protection?
I have used one other brand of nappies on my baby and I found there nappies very hard not soft to touch, they leaked, baby wasnt happy in them

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?
the cost of the nappies do seem more expensive then others but they last longer

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 always recommend pampers to any new mothers, they kept the baby drier for long
I was picked by MNHQ to review this product, which I received for free. This review is in my own words and reflects my true opinion

cannaethink Thu 09-May-13 21:25:09

DS2 is 13 months. Testing the size 4 nappies.

Q1. I like that they are thin and quite flexible. Others can be a bit rigid and stiff and don't look like they'd be in anyway comfortable. I will continue to use them as I've found them to be the most reliable nappy.

Q2. Definitely the best for leak protection. I don't think there's ever been a daytime leak. DS is a tummy sleeper which proves too much for other brands I've tried. We do still have the odd leak though at night, always from the top. I actually usually use size 5 for him at night as that generally solves that!

Q3. I find them not too bad value. They are more expensive but then I use less as they are better. Also, I felt like I could waste a lot of money trying out loads of different brands until I found one I was happy with but cheaper.

Q4. I have recommended them before and will continue to because they are reliable and seem the most comfortable for DS.

6months size 3

Q1 What was your overall impression of Pampers Baby-Dry nappies? Would you use them again? If so, why? If not, why not?
They're brilliant, no leaks, stretchy so move with him as he's always on the move but with these there's no marks from his nappies anymore. Def use them again if they were always on offer like baby events

Q2 How did they compare with other nappies you've used in terms of dryness and leakage protection?
Perfect, no leaks except the occasional big poop

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?
Have used Asda little angels and they Almost compare but for half the price

Munxx Thu 09-May-13 21:47:13

Size 4 on my 8 mo son

They are nice and soft, easy to use and much softer than other brands.
They are better than our usual brand in terms of dryness and leakage protection, and also in the morning after 12 hours in the nappy I can't smell any urine which is a big plus as we cosleep.
Price is fine, would recommend and buy them (when on offer!)

youmaycallmeSSP Thu 09-May-13 21:53:00

I tried size 4 for my 6 month-old DD.

- Overall, I like them because they kept DD dry but that's about it. I've always used them overnight with my older child and have had some leaks but I think that's par for the course with boys as they wee in odd directions. I didn't have any wee leaks with DD but had to change her clothes every time she did a poo. They have also left very sore-looking red lines on the upper insides of her thighs. For those two reasons, I won't be buying them again.

- I usually use cloth nappies during the day and Huggies overnight (and have a year's supply of Huggies stocked up for this purpose...). The Pampers were better than the cloth nappies at holding wee but useless at holding poo. They were not such a good fit as the Huggies around DD's legs.

- As a convert to cloth nappies, I do now find the cost of any disposable nappies rather eye-watering. I have always used Pampers for my older DS though and have been happy to pay a premium for a branded nappy that worked well for him. I wouldn't buy Pampers at any price for DD as they just don't work for her.

- I would recommend other parents giving Pampers Baby Dry a go because they do last all night.

Laurah2013 Thu 09-May-13 22:07:04

So i have been using the size 4 on our 12 month old.

I have to say how impressed i am with the nappy, they kept my little one dry from 7pm through 8am, thats an amazing 13 hours with no leaks. When we changed the nappy in the morning, my littleones skin remained dry so the nappy had held the wee away from the skin.
The nappies are thin (not bulky) and provide a comfortable fit on our little one. The stretch is in all the right areas to fit like a glove.

We have had issues with some brands in the past not keeping baby dry all night so it is a comfort to know that this doesnt seem to be an issue with Pampers Baby Dry.

Although they are expensive in comparison to some supermarket own brands, they do seem to be frequently on offer. Discounts or Multibuys etc, so i think i would wait until they were on offer and then stock up.

These are certainly a nappy i will be recommending.

Dizzy22 Thu 09-May-13 22:12:15

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 overly impressed with Pampers Baby-Dry nappies, they looked fab, nice and slim, cute friendly design, soft to touch and the highest absorbency Ive seen from a nappy. After testing these nappies, i would not look at another brand.

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

They are fab, i think we had one leakage from the leg (from an explosive poop) but apart from that we had no other leakages and my boy wee's like a trooper. I found i didn't need to change him as often meaning i saved money on nappies, nappy bags, wipes etc. When using supermarkets own or other brands i found myself having to change my boy every 2 hours if not more. Pampers baby-dry have certainly kept him happy, no signs of a nappy rash or sore bottom either.

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 managed to get 2 boxes of 92 nappies (184 nappies in total) for £20.00 in Asda, so at just 11p (ish) a nappy i think this is pretty good value, considering they last a lot longer than any other brand we have tried. I can get away without changing him throughout the night now unless he poops of course :O)

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 have already recommended them to fellow mums and they are also now using them through out the day and night due to their effectiveness. I would recommend these nappies to all mums i know without hesitation :O)

Thank you Pampers xx

I tried size 4 on my 2yo who is just within the weight range for that size.

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 they were a good fit, not too hard or thick. They were absorbent and we suffered no leaks smile I certainly do plan to use them again.

Q2 How did they compare with other nappies you've used in terms of dryness and leakage protection?
They compare very well - no problems here, smile
That said I do firmly believe different shaped babies suit different brands - DD1 and DD2 have suited opposing brands.

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 not the cheapest but in my eyes they do represent value for money - they do absorb well /keep the babies comfy and as far as I am aware do not contain any/so much in the way of chemicals as some less expensive brands. I trust them.

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 them , as I cannot think of any negatives or any reason not to.

I used size 4 for my 10 month old.

I liked the nappies, they felt very dry to the touch and his skin was very dry indeed. I didn't last the full 12 hours though as my little one doesn't sleep for 12 hours. I changed it after 8 hours usually. I think he would have gone longer and he definitely didn't wake because he was wet. I like that they're not big and bulky. Pampers do have a really distinctive smell (compared to other brands) when wet, it's really chemical smelling, and this is no different to active fit etc in that regard. I find it slightly off-putting and I'm not happy to leave the little one playing with a dry nappy at change time if they happen to swipe one from the changing table.

I was a pretty clueless first time mum and kind of just stuck with active fit, until a friend recomended baby dry at night - I would be happy to pass that advice on - they're great.

Someone up thread mentioned they hated the tag line "golden sleep" - me too, it's slightly odd.

I think they are a little expensive compared to other brands, but to be honest, to avoid a wet baby and a damp or dirty bed in the middle of the night, it's a price worth paying. I usually stock up when they're on offer. Someone once said that nappies are priced to be on offer most of the time - if so, its really annoying, I'm not loyal to a supermarket, and with home delivery I just buy from whomever discounts.

LillyofWinchester Thu 09-May-13 22:52:31

Size 3 trialled with my 4 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?

- slim, not bulky, good design
- comfy for baby and rarely leak
- last a long time overnight (usually have to change him abou 4/5am but he does feed a lot overnight)
- even though they are more expensive they are good value as they work well
- my baby is a lot more active with his legs when he doesn't have a nappy on so I wish these allowed more movement from baby. I'm going to try the active fit ones for daytime to see if I like them
- I think it would be good to have the tips for using nappies which I saw on the link in this thread printed on the packaging.
- never had any problems with nappy rash while using them which is the biggest plus for me

Q2 How did they compare with other nappies you've used in terms of dryness and leakage protection?
- I have only tried huggies newborn and tesco own, these are much better than tescos as they don't leak and feel more absorbent.
- when I run out of this size I'm going to try kiddicare nappies as have heard good things about them.
- best nappies I've tried for overnight use. I wouldn't trust the tescos ones 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?
- I think they are when bought in bulk as you don't need to use as many or wash as many changes of clothes.
- if I only wanted to buy as small packet of nappies I'd buy a cheaper brand

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 of I thought the parent could afford them, I would also mention trying Aldi and kiddicare ones based on recommendations from others.

ifindoubtnamechange Thu 09-May-13 23:05:41

I had size 4 of these for my DD (22months).

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 happy with these. I will contniue to use them. They kept DD dry overnight.

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

These were the best I've used. I was delighted that they contained leaky poop!

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 aren't the cheapest but I found I had to change them less often, so I feel that works out well.

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. They are the best I've tried for dryness and protection against leaking. Also DD had less nappy rash than she has had with some other brands, I think they must absorb urine quickly.

bundlebundle Fri 10-May-13 09:06:13

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

I would Not use these again, there was a funny smell, my baby had a leak on one occasion after 3-4 hours and they made him sore.

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

I currently use a supermarket's own brand nappy and I would say the brand I use was in fact better at protecting my son. He was drier & has not had a leak in them, unlike the pampers.

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?

No I don't think they are good value, they are expensive and do not offer the protection I would expect when spending this sort of money.

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 I would not recommend, price being a major factor, in this day and age it is all about getting a quality product for a low price.
They made my baby sore and there was a funny odour that came from them which I did not like.
Although this may differ for other babies, I would not recommend something I was not prepared to use my self.

amz12 Fri 10-May-13 11:59:55

Tested the size 3 on my 7 months baby.

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 pretty impressed with them, they did a good job of keeping my baby dry over the night, and would therefore use them again.

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

For dryness over the night they are definitely one of the best if not the best but other brands, especially supermarket own brands are just as good during the daytime.

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?

Compared to other brands they are expensive, so would never buy them unless 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?

I would recommend it to other parents because it does a good job.

Lilliana Fri 10-May-13 12:23:23

My DD is 5 months and we have been testing 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?

I liked the design, they felt nice and they seem to fit my DD well. They were thinner than I expected and don't seem to have the chemical smell that I have had when using other pampers nappies.

Yes I would use them again - I was a big fan of huggies but they are no longer and this trial has changed my mind about pampers!

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

We haven't had any leaks but not tried them with a poo yet! (have been using them overnight) Her bottom does feel damp when I take it off but she is not waking up in the morning and immediately crying for a nappy change which is what she had been doing with other brands so that is great. Also she seems to settle better when she has a late night wake (ie if she woke from 5 onwards with other nappies she was difficult to settle but with the pampers baby dry she settles back quickly- I'm guessing because she is more comfortable)

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?

Would probably buy when on offer but as I use less pampers then own brand nappies I guess they work out about the same price per day.

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 - comfort, fit, dryness, lack of leaks smile

Thanks for letting me try these

firawla Fri 10-May-13 12:24:22

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

yes would use them again. I always liked pampers baby dry. sometimes we go to super market brands to save money but if money's no object I always go for pampers baby dry, since i had my 1st one in nappies now using on my 3rd

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

i find them very reliable especially for over night

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 not bad. supermarket can be better value but these are a little better, so just depends how much you are concerned about cost at the time

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 and i have in the past, recommended them to others as the best brand, because my friends who have their 1st babies always ask me this stuff

did the review and survey too

ItsallisnowaFeegle Fri 10-May-13 12:40:30

My baby is 5 months old and we're testing the size 3 Pampers Baby-Dry

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

My overall impression of Pampers Baby-Dry nappies is that they are lovely and soft, very thin and have very cute designs on.

I requested the size 3 nappies and in hindsight, wish I'd requested the size 4 nappies, however, despite this I've been extremely impressed with the performance of the nappies and have had no leaks through the night.

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

I don't usually buy Pampers Baby-Dry, or any of the other Pampers nappies available. *I usually buy Asda Little Angels nappies as they are much cheaper and perform well, however, we do have the occasional night-time leak and they aren't as soft or as 'cute' as the Pampers Baby-Dry nappies.

Both Pampers Baby-Dry nappies and my usual brand perform well in terms of dryness.

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?

Pampers Baby-Dry nappies cost quite a bit more than my usual brand, but that's to be expected for a branded product.

I believe I would need to use Pampers Baby-Dry nappies for a longer test period to decide whether or not they would be more economical for long-term use, as I don't think I could make a fair judgement on the use of one pack.

I have decided to buy size 4 Pampers Baby-Dry nappies for use when this pack runs out as I am interested to see if the larger size would perform even better.

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 Pampers Baby-Dry nappies as an excellent 'overnight' nappy.

adagio Fri 10-May-13 12:42:36

Baby Girl Age almost 5 months, size 3

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

Nice design, lovely and soft and very absorbent, will definitely use again particularly overnight. Due to softness, no red bits/chaffing on the top of the legs

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

Excellent absorption, no leaks here (even with wet poo which tended to come out the top/back of all other nappies including Pampers New born)

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 technically good value, as due to the absorbency they can 'last' longer between changes, however in terms of initial outlay they feel more expensive than supermarket own brands. Personally, I will definitely use overnight without fail, or for days out, but will probably continue to mix with cheaper supermarket own brands for days when I know I am close to home so its easy to handle changes/leaks as the need arises.

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

Absolutely. They are a good fit, very absorbent and seldom leak and IMO slightly 'large' for the size i.e. fit a good range of baby sizes. Some of the supermarkets come up small.

As a previous poster has commented, I am not convinced by the 'golden sleep' strap line though! Makes me think of wee and golden showers too...

TaperJeanGirl Fri 10-May-13 12:43:53

Just got ours today, will be trying them later!

abi2790 Fri 10-May-13 13:49:49

I used Size 4 on my 5 month old. I already use Pampers Baby Dry on him and have always been pleased with them.

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

Baby Dry work really well for both me and my baby. They definitely stay dry overnight which helps my son (and me, of course) get more sleep overnight. Also, I find Pampers Baby Dry to be much more stretchy than other nappy brands which gives my son the space to be his normal wriggly self. I will definitely be using Baby Dry again.

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

In the past, especially when my son was much younger, I found that other nappy brands would leak very easily even when he hadn't had the nappy on for very long. This meant that he went through lots of clothes. However, since we've been using Baby Dry we don't tend to have this problem.

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 that Baby Dry are quite expensive but it is money worth paying if the nappies don't leak.

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 Pampers Baby-Dry to other mums as they have worked really well for me and my son.

Hi, My daughter is 2 and we used the size 4 nappies. I love them and we will definitely use them again. She remained comfortable and dry between changes and they lasted well all night too. She is a very active toddler and the stretchy bits on the legs meant she could run about as much as she wanted comfortably and without being encumbered by her nappy and without it rubbing. These are my main brand anyway, so yes, I will use them again. They compare well to other brands but to be honest I've only ever really used Pampers - I had a brief stint with Huggies when she was quite small but I found they leaked. They are pretty expensive, especially compared to supermarket own brands, but we tend to buy them when they are on offer, in the large multi-packs when the supermarkets have their baby events so they work out good value. I would definitely recommend them to my friends, yes.

dragonb Fri 10-May-13 14:24:19

I trialed size 3 on my 19 week old

I have mostly always used pampers on all four of my daughters, and have never had any problems.
These nappies i found to be thinner on my daughter which seemed to suit her better, she also seemed dryer in the morning compared to the older version of these, especially as she still feeds at night quite a bit.
Yes they are a bit more expensive but would rather pay that than have a grumpy daughter in the morning cause she had leaked.
I would more than happily recommend these nappies to other mums.

Kittenprincess2002 Fri 10-May-13 15:22:19

I have been testing the size 4 nappies on my 9 month old boy:

Q1 My overall impression of Pampers Baby Dry nappies is that they are very good. They are lightweight and soft compared to other brands. I would definately use them again.

Q2 Pampers Baby Dry were much better on leakage than other brands. I tried other brands and ended up having to change a leaky nappy night after night and this never happened with the Baby Dry nappies. So far I have not had a leaky nappy. Very impressed.

Q3 I think Pampers Baby Dry are good value for money. Having used other brands the prices are not that dissimilar, however, Pampers seem to be better at keeping baby dry, especially at night. They are often on offer in supermarkets when buying a large quantity.

Q4 I would definately recommend Pampers Baby Dry to my friends. There are many other brands out there but these ones have been the best so far in my opinion.

toughday Fri 10-May-13 15:41:38

I tested the size 3 on my 15 week old. I was already using a mixture of baby dry and new baby on him and have never had any real issues.

Q1. What was your overall impression of Pampers Baby-Dry nappies? Would you use them again? If so, why? If not, why not?
Ds is still feeding through the night and he is dry in the morning with no leaks. I will probably keep using them.

Q2 How did they compare with other nappies you've used in terms of dryness and leakage protection?
Very little leaks and containment was excellent with the breastfed poo, normally a bit escapes onto the vest but I haven't found it so far with these.

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 nappies especially with how few comes in the carry pack. I would only buy them when on special 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 I would as they are reliable.

kirstysmith01 Fri 10-May-13 15:47:10

i've tried the size 3 on my 7 month little girl and i have to say they are great. so much better than the brands that i have tried, they are lovely and thin and have such great absorbancey that i don't have to worry about changing her bum in the night as we've had not leaks i will be using them from now on as the are reliable and no more expencive than other brands and ive already recommended them to some other mums i know.

Crocodilehunter Fri 10-May-13 16:06:59

My LO is 25 weeks old and we've been trying the size 4 nappies.

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 using these nappies, the design is cute and neat!
i find that they hold wetness really well and have dabbed a paper towel on the nappies after taking it off and not much liquid transfers to the towel at all, that said I prefer to use them at night when DS is not sleeping as he only has wet nappies at night!

DS has very runny poos and not one brand of nappy i have tried has ever stopped poo leakage fully, the Pampers active fit do this job best for me but Pampers baby-dry is a close runner up!

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

As i said, for wet nappies, Pampers baby dry is fantastic not once have i had a problem with leakage and at night DS goes from 7PM till 7:30AM with no nappy changes he ends up with a heavy nappy but a dry bottom these beat any other nappies i have tried in this area

For soiled nappies i find Pampers active fit better than Pampers baby dry, neither stop poo leakage fully but active fit make it that little bit less messy (other brands have failed in this area more so than pampers) That said I preferred baby dry nappies for overnight, active fit nappies aren't necessarily the best all-rounder

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?

There are always offers on pampers nappies, i hardly ever have to buy at full price so i do kind of begrudge these full price examples! That said i would still buy them at full price because they do the job so well.

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 reccomend these nappies to other parents because they have worked so well for me! I couldnt (with confidence) leave my baby for 12 hours without changing him in any other brand of nappy

gruber Fri 10-May-13 16:31:25

Testing on DS, 3.5 months/15 weeks. Size 4.

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

Really good, contained both wee & poo well, even a huge poo in the morning when it was sodden. No leakage at all. Definitely would use again for reliability as much as anything - I know that DS will be comfortable, won't wake up wet and the nappy won't cause a 3am nappy /clothes/grobag change situation.

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

Very impressed- better than the supermarket own brand we had been using which leaked & left DS wet up to his armpit. No nappy rash at all, even after 12 hours! I felt confident leaving DS in his nappy all night, especially as he sometimes sleeps through now, it's such a relief to know the nappy won't leak. Because we are rarely in disposables (cloth by day, which don't leak) it's even more important to get the right fit/leakage protection as we only get through 1pack every 3-4 weeks.

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?

Well. They are expensive, but at 1/night (we are mostly in reusables by day) they aren't too bad. For me it's the reliability- its a false economy if you get through 2 or 3 supermarket ones per 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?

Yes definitely. Because they are a good fit on my super-long, chunky DS, don't leak and don't give him nappy rash even when he's in it 10pm-8am.

Amma2010 Fri 10-May-13 16:47:49

Thank you for giving me the opportunity to test the nappies. I got size 4 nappies for my son who’s 6 months old.

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 happy with the nappies as they were soft and not bulky. Loved the pictures on the nappies too.
Yes, I’d definitely use them again. They were able to contain my son’s massive explosions which is a plus as previously I have had to change his clothes which were covered in poo that had leaked.

Q2 How did they compare with other nappies you've used in terms of dryness and leakage protection?
Definitely superior. I’m so happy that as long as I change my baby’s nappy immediately after an explosion there aren’t any leakages. This is a great plus. The nappies also keep him drier for longer.

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?
In my opinion though they might seem pricier than some other nappies these are good quality. You get what you pay for. Given the benefits I believe they are worth the price especially if one can buy them 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, I’ll recommend it as they have managed to keep my son drier for longer and there’s more protection against leakages&#61514;

Anypants Fri 10-May-13 16:51:28

I tested size 3 on my 11 week old.

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 that they were as good a quality as I have come to expect from Pampers, having previously used their newborn range. They have a nice design and offer a good fit. My only qualm would be the slight chemical smell when you open the packet, although I couldn't smell it when DD was wearing them.

Q2 How did they compare with other nappies you've used in terms of dryness and leakage protection?
Much better than the supermarket own brand that I was using - she tends to save up her poo over the course of a few days and lets it all go when i'm least expecting it so I need a nappy that can contain the explosion, and it did! Her bum was nice and dry the rest of the time but she didn't last the full 12 hours without needing to be changed.

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 more expensive than my normal brand and but if they were on offer i.e. 3 for 2, I would stock up. You do get what you pay for though so I think they are priced correctly.

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 - they seem to perform as well as they claim to.

kazzymidd Fri 10-May-13 17:04:13

I tried my free pack of 30 pampers baby dry size 4 and they was fantastic no soreness or leaking shall be buying in future

Droflove Fri 10-May-13 17:22:32

Q1 Really good impression of the product. The nappies I had been using sometimes leaked and I thought this was inevitable but the pampers ones can literally stay on all night, 7pm to 7am and although they would break your toe the weight of them in the morning, they don't seem to leak.

Q2 Really good dryness and leak free even after a whole night. The gel fills up the whole way around but still doesn't leak. I found huggies and my cheap but nice and soft kiddicare ones do leak. The former horribly, the later only on occasion. But the pampers are now my favourite.

Q3 I personally am always looking to pay for nappies at approximately 10p/nappy. I dont know how many are in the boxes indicated on this thread!!!!! but I suspect the unit cost is a lot higher. So I will probably be constantly looking for a deal on the pampers. I would not be happy to pay the full price.

Q4 Yes, definitely. I would be saying though that they are far more expensive than other decent enough ones out there.

PastaBeeandCheese Fri 10-May-13 17:24:57

I tried these with my 18 month old DD who had the size 4's.

1/ what was your overall impression? Would you use them again?

I thought they were great. I use Pampers baby dry anyway and Pampers newborn before that so was curious to see if they have really been improved as I've always been really happy with them anyway. I have to say these are an improvement. DD sleeps for 12 hours at night and these nappies are well up to the job and her skin is still dry in the morning.

I will definitely use them again.

2/ How did they compare with other nappies?

I haven't ever tried another brand at home but nursery provide nappies and occasionally use Huggies or Kiddicare. I don't like them. They feel all 'papery' and stiff. They do the job but I'm not sure they'd last the night and my impression is they wouldn't be as comfy.

3/ Do you think they are good value for money?

Yes, they are expensive but in this instance you get what you pay for so I think the price is fair.

4/ Would you recommend these nappies?

Yes, definitely.

Thank you for the free nappies Pampers!

PastaBeeandCheese Fri 10-May-13 17:30:27

Ooo, I wanted to add that in terms of value I don't like the way the number of nappies in the pack decreases as you go up the sizes. Seems a bit mean to me.

grannyagedmummy Fri 10-May-13 19:50:53

Please state the age of your baby/child and the size of nappy you were trying in your response.

Baby aged 14 months

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

I really liked them. They felt lovely and soft to touch which made me feel happy putting them in. Will definately use them again as they didnt leak, didnt feel damp on the outside when thy had been in for 12 hours and kept my little boys skin dry

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

They were better in terms of keeping baby's bum dry and no leakage smile)

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?

Although they are slightly more expensive I haven't used as many as I can leave them on longer so they work out 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 I would recommend as they keep baby's bum dry, work out about the same as other brands or cheaper as you don't have to change as often and are soft against the skin.

My DS is 6 months old, weighs 17lbs 10ozs & wears a size 4

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

They are nice and lightweight and very slim given the - definitely are the most absorbent nappy I've found. overnight they don't keep DS dry for the full 12 hours but I think that's because he has a large feed just before bed, so needs changing after roughly 4 hours but then goes straight through from 10:30pm to 7am. So, the Pampers keep him dry for 8 hours or more. He has never leaked.

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

The most absorbent I've found, definitely. Unless absolutely sodden, DS skin is protected and rarely does the skin feel wet.

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?

Pampers are about 25% more expensive than some other alternatives but given the absorbency & fact skin isn't react when wet is worth the extra. I would like to see more offers though, especially on jumbo packs.

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 them, because from the beginning with DS I've not changed him in the night unless he's passed a stool or the nappy is sodden.

pinkem Fri 10-May-13 20:59:34

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

Before testing I thought the Baby-Dry were the 'basic version' of pampers! 'New Baby' and 'Active Fit' seemed like they did/do more! Very impressed, comfy, no leaks so far.

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

I've used Huggies and New Baby pampers before; Huggies leaked and just didn't seem to fit! Both New Baby and Baby Dry have had a good fit and are reliable.

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?

Pampers seem expensive next to other brands however I normally buy in bulk when an offer comes up. I would prefer to pay more for something I know I can rely on.

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. They have not let me down up to now.

Testing size 4 nappies on 13 month old DD

Q1 What was your overall impression of Pampers Baby-Dry nappies? Would you use them again? If so, why? If not, why not?
Lovely nappies. Soft material and a nice design. Not too bulky considering the absorbency. The only down side is the slightly chemical smell.

Q2 How did they compare with other nappies you've used in terms of dryness and leakage protection?
They are great, no leakages so far and they have been tested!

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 wouldn't buy them at full price as I shop around and stock up during baby events. The full rrp is too high in my opinion.

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. Baby is kept dry whilst wearing the nappy. No leakages and no rashes. Very good and reliable nappy.

LoganMummy Fri 10-May-13 21:59:47

1. Overall impression is a fairly decent nappy but for fit for my DS I prefer the Simply Dry - the fit at the back just wasn't as snug.
I would use them again but they wouldn't be my first choice.

2. Compared to other nappies they were good, seem to hold a lot more wetness but my DS had a huge nappy after about nine hours in bed which woke him up so not the whole 12 hours I had hoped for.

3. Cost. As mentioned above the Simply Dry seem to work better for us so in terms of value for money, no I don't think these nappies provide great value for money.

4. Yes, I would suggest friends try them as different nappies suit different babies.

I tested the size 4 with my two year-old son.

janey234 Fri 10-May-13 22:20:46

I used the size 3 nappies on my 11 week old son
my little boy has really sensitive skin and is prone to nappy rash so i am very very careful about what products I use for him i recently changed to these nappies and honestly would not use anything else, absolutely unbeatable for night time use, lovely soft feel against my baby's skin, no leaks at all, fantastic fit and they are so absorbent they don't even feel wet when changing in the morning.
they do seem a little expensive but honestly the value and piece of mind they provide over night is worth it. I would definitely recommend for night time use to friends

sarahbanshee Fri 10-May-13 22:40:41

I tested size 4 nappies on my 12 month old.

Q1 I think these are excellent nappies - slim, very absorbent, no problems at all with leaks. I have used Active Fit before but found these just as good and would use them again.

Q2 These were as good as any nappy we've tried for holding wetness and stopping leaks.

Q3 I think they are expensive compared with other brands but they seem to be a very good nappy so are good value nonetheless.

Q4 I would recommend them to other parents.

DS is 17 months old, and we trialled the Size 4 nappies.

Q1 What was your overall impression of Pampers Baby-Dry nappies? Would you use them again? If so, why? If not, why not?
Absolutely brilliant. We've been using cheaper options for a while now so it was a pleasant change to have a nappy that fits well and is nice and soft. The size 4 is nice and roomy. There is no chemical smell to them, which I find with the Active Fit nappies.

As with another reviewer, I did find that one of the tabs pulled off one of the nappies without a great deal of force - this was always an issue with Pampers, and I do wish they would fix it.

I would use Baby-Dry again, though. I really do like them, and I feel that they are the best on the market for overnight protection in particular.

Q2 How did they compare with other nappies you've used in terms of dryness and leakage protection?
Really well. They never leak wee and I feel 100% confident in them lasting overnight. Even in the morning the nappy never looks overfull, whereas other nappies you can see the dampness through them and they often look full to bursting.

We have been having a lot of horrid watery teething nappies and I do find that on occasion the wetness from the poo seeps through at the legs - but this is no different to any other nappy.

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?
Yes and no - I find it difficult to say! They're at the top end of the spectrum cost-wise, but they're also very, very reliable. For a baby who is a heavy wetter, for sensitive bums etc then I think they're worth it. They are also usually on offer in most shops, which helps bring the cost down.

I generally would use a cheaper nappy during the day because we are trying to save money, but ideally a Baby-Dry overnight because I know I trust them. If money were no object I would use them regularly.

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 - they're a brand and a product I know I can trust. They do exactly what they say they do.

umiaisha Fri 10-May-13 22:50:16

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

I tried out size 4 on my 2 year old. Great quality, great fit and no leaks.

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

Find that Pampers are the only nappies that don't leak, found the same with the trial nappies.

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?

Very good value for money.

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

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

I really liked them. They seemed thinner than other nappies, cute designs and really effective against leaks.

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

They performed better. I either buy Pampers, Boots or Tesco and previously DS2 (15 months) would get leaks when he pooed. No leakage with these at all. I also noticed his bottom seemed much drier when I changed a wet nappy (including overnight very wet ones).

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?

The pack size prices aren't much use to me as I never know how many are in a pack - when I buy based on price I always check the cost per nappy on the shelf label instead. I would assume these are more expensive than Tesco or Boots but they were very effective so yes good value for money.

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 because of the lack of leakage and the thinness (is that a word?!) You have to cart so much around with one or two small children that thinner nappies do help.

DoTheStrand Sat 11-May-13 01:01:12

Sorry meant to say I tried size 4 on my 15 month old.

kellou22 Sat 11-May-13 08:00:02

I tried size 4 on my 6 month old son
Q1... I would use them again they did keep leakage at bay on a nite the only leakage which has escaped have been my sons explosive poos but I've tried different nappies and nothing manages to keep those in. Overall a good quality nappy

Q2..... No leakage over nite so happy

Q3..... Not bad value for money a little expensive but I guess u get what you pay for supermarket brands are cheaper but not as good in quality

Q4..... I would recommend them as I feel there a good quality nappy

Fannydewdrop Sat 11-May-13 10:08:48

I tried size 4 for my 6 month old

My overall impression was they do exactly what it says on the pack, they kept my little one dry all night and would defiantly use them again.

I've use Huggies and sainsburys own and I found that I had to change baby more often as they didn't hold as much, were very bulky and didn't keep her dry

I do find pampers quite expensive compare to other brands and i try to buy them when the supermarkets have them on offer which is most of the time, but for keeping baby dry they are good value for money.

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 defiantly recommend pampers baby dry to other mums

yogaJo Sat 11-May-13 10:50:22

Baby aged 15 months size 4 nappies

Overall impression are they are well made and definitely kept my DS dry for 12 hours and more.

They were much better than other brands I have used at night.

They can be good value for money when on offer but are not expensive than supermarket brands at normal price.

I would definitely recommend pampers baby dry to other mums as they give great protection with very few leaks. A tried and tested brand you can rely on.

vnmh Sat 11-May-13 11:43:09

1. Very impressed with the quality & how thin they were & soft, so lovely & comfortable on my boy's skin.
2. I have been using another well known brand but my son started waking in the night having soaked though his nappy, vest & sleepsuit! Using Pampers, not only was he not wet in the morning but his skin bone dry.
As little one is teething, we get the 'teething nappies' which are not pleasant but made all the better by the faact that none of it leaks out of the legs or up his back as with the previous brand.
3. They are one of the most expensive nappies available but you really cannot fault them as they more than worth the money! Also it's great when you can pick up the jumbo or mega boxes when on promotion in the supermarkets :-)
4. I would recommended these nappies 100% because they keep baby dry & secure. Happy baby = Happy Mummy! :-))

minnie78 Sat 11-May-13 15:55:47

I have been using the size 3 Pampers on my 4 month old DD.

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 the overall look of Pampers nappies, they seem quite thin in comparison to others eg Huggies which are a bit thick. They did the job in terms of keeping my DD dry – I haven’t been able to test the 12 hour dryness as my DD doesn’t sleep through yet but there were no leaks after wearing for about 9 hours. There have been some leaks with poo around the leg holes but this may well have been the case with other nappies too with my DD’s explosive poos! I already use Pampers baby dry for my older DC’s nighttime nappies and will continue to use them for all my DC’s.

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

I have used both Huggies and Aldi Mamia nappies with my DD and with both of these on occasion she has woken up leaking and wet in the night however this hasn’t happened with Pampers so I think they are definitely superior in terms of keeping baby dry at night.

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 when the Pampers nappies are full price then they work out more expensive than other brands and do seem too expensive. However when they are on offer (which they usually are) then I think they are worth buying against other brands for the peace of mind that you won’t need to be changing babies clothes in the middle of the night due to 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?

Yes I would recommend them in particular for their reliability of keeping baby dry and comfortable overnight in comparison to other brands.

fourmonthstogo Sat 11-May-13 16:01:58

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

I think that they are really good. No leaks, fit DD well. I tried size 4, and she is 2 and weighs 13kilo. Would def use again.

I use cloth nappies during the day but use disposables at night - sleep is much too precious for both me and DD to be changing wet nappies at night - this combination of nappies works well for us. In fact we nearly always use pampers anyway at night and find them very reliable.

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

They are obviously more absorbant than cloth nappies, and I don't feel that I have to worry about leaks with them. I have previously had a couple of leaks with pampers but only after a full night when she had a lot of milk to drink (and to be honest more like 13/14 hours of wear, so not unexpected!) I had no problems at all with this pack.

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 as they are so reliable - but I must admit I tend to try and find them on offer somewhere, which they normally are. Not to bang the cloth nappy drum, but resuable nappies are better value in my view both financially and environmentally.

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, and I have done.

Panzee Sat 11-May-13 16:05:44

I am not an official tester but recently changed to Pampers after Huggies pulled out.
Just one question- what is that smell? When a nappy is new on it is atrocious.

Smicha Sat 11-May-13 16:08:32

I tried size 4 on my 7 month old DS.

Q1 What was your overall impression of Pampers Baby-Dry nappies? Would you use them again? If so, why? If not, why not?
Really happy with them for overnight use. DS has worn them for up to 12 hours without leakage most nights. I do think, however, that I would use a size up from the size I'm using during the day as that gives extra absorbency and guarantees a leak-free night. Yes I would use them again as I haven't found another nappy which offers such good night time wear.

Q2 How did they compare with other nappies you've used in terms of dryness and leakage protection?
They are much better than other nappies I've used. Even though they are full and heavy by morning, DS's skin is still dry. I have used other nappies which have given him nappy rash by allowing his skin to get wet 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? They are a lot more expensive than supermarket brands and don't provide amazing value for money in comparison, although they are better at keeping baby dry so I suppose in reality you will have fewer overnight nappy changes. I only ever stock up on Pampers when they are on offer though, so I wouldn't pay full price for a pack.

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. If parents are struggling with leakages through the night, the overnight protection, in my experience, can't be beaten.

Piemother Sat 11-May-13 16:22:45

1. Overall impression is that they are better than when I had dd1 when they leaked and caused nappy rash. They feel soft and comfy and I have noticed they are better elasticated than other nappies I use so they fit well. They leak but I've not yet used a nappy that doesn't with bf baby poo! No wee leaks whatsoever grin

Piemother Sat 11-May-13 16:26:24

3 and 4-
I like that you can buy them in bulk a bit cheaper that's more useful. I think they are a similar price in supermarkets to the naty nappies I was using but more expensive than the sainsburys little ones I have recently swapped to but prob more expensive than aldi.

To friends I would say they are ok, not so amazing that I can see why they are so popular bit they are so soft and comfy and stretchy which others arnt that I've tried grin

On the whole I liked them much more than when I had dd1 3 years ago.

ELH1 Sat 11-May-13 17:30:40

My son is 3 months old and we used size 3.

Q1. My overall impression is they were good. Nice design, nice and soft. Did what they say they do.

Q2. We didn't have any wet leaks, which we have had with other brands. This includes up to about 10 hours (not left it longer than that).
We have had several leaks of poo up the back and out the leg. The poos were pretty big and sometimes explosive so they may have leaked whatever we were using!

Q3. They are expensive compared to other brands, and when you are getting through about 8-10 a day it soon adds up.

Q4. I would recommend them as a good quality product. Although expensive.

mummy81 Sat 11-May-13 19:29:58

My child is 23 months, we used size 4.

Q1 What was your overall impression of Pampers Baby-Dry nappies? Would you use them again? If so, why? If not, why not? They weren't bulky at all and they fit really well. Baby liked the pictures. I do find them to have a chemical smell to them when full.

Q2 How did they compare with other nappies you've used in terms of dryness and leakage protection? I've only ever used reusable nappies or huggies. Can't fault the nappies in terms of dryness. Held my toddlers overnight wee fine.

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 find papers to be expensive, but Id probably buy in bulk 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 I would because I was pleasantly surprised with how compact they are and how much they held.

pinny1978 Sat 11-May-13 20:09:09

size 4, 11 months old.

1. I liked the pampers baby dry nappies, they were thin, flexible and soft, appeared much better quality than my usual own brand nappy and easily relied upon for overnight use.
2.daughters bottom appeared as dry as usual after a long nights sleep
3.cost of nappies is a problem for me- I am not denying they are improved quality but can I justify the price when we can get away with a cheaper option? I often wait for a special offer and use sparingly
4. I would recommend pampers baby dry to others despite the price because quality is so good. I would however mention the cost and suggest they look out for special offers to make them more affordable.

TaperJeanGirl Sat 11-May-13 21:57:01

We tried size 4, and my baby is 23 months old.

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

I liked the thiness of them, nice designs, and allowed for free movement for my climbing/dancing/running toddler, I would def use them again, and i'd recommend them.

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

I use pampers from time to time, but these are much much better at preventing leaks, my daughter has a habit of drinking LOTS of water (in place of a dummy/thumb) and with other nappies she often leaks out of them in under an hour, I have real trouble with her clothes/carseats/buggy/bedding getting soaked, these nappies last a good 4 hours on her without leaking which is as good as we have ever had, and I imagine would last much much longer on a child without my daughters habit

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 more expensive than our normal supermarket brand, but, well worth it, she seems much happier in them as well, as with her normal nappies she just takes them off as soon as theyre wet, which is all the time!

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 def recommend them, especially for during the night and days out as they really are the best I have tried in terms of leaks.

YeahThatsTheBadger Sat 11-May-13 22:12:50

Size 4 on my 10 month old.

Q1. Liked them. Slimmer than own brand alternative but very absorbent. Do not like the smell. No other nappy brand smells like it. Wouldn't use them again because it's more expensive than the own brand nappies and the smell puts me off as it makes me wonder what sort of chemicals are in them.

Q2. I had used these before when DS3 still fed once or twice in the night because the own brand nappies leaked but pampers baby dry never leaked.

Q3. Yes, if you buy the larger packs but as the own brand nappies work for DS3, and are cheaper, I don't think they are great value.

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 them if their babies nappies were leaking, especially during the night, but otherwise I would probably suggest they stick to own brands.

jes73 Sat 11-May-13 22:13:49

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

I would use Pampers Baby Dry again for my child as it keeps her dry. And it is very good quality. No nappy rash or anything. I did find a strange smell when I first opened the pack but that seemed to disappear once I had it opened. They fit really well.

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

They do keep dry but I have to say I find the Pampers Active Fit keeps drier.
Compared to other brands they have a really good fit so there is no leakage.

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?

Yes, they are good value for money because you don't need to change very frequently and it keeps dry for long.

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 because I love the Pampers brand. The texture is soft and I love the side tabs that prevent leakage. I have recently used a store brand just to try it out and it caused a bad nappy rash so I quickly shifted back to the brand I swear by - Pampers.

lg 11 months tried size 4

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 been using huggies and was looking for a new brand to swap across to. my lg was teething which means lots of dirty nappies and waking in the night. this nappies stood the test not leaking and comfortable for a 12 hours sleep.my lg sleeps 8pm-8am

Q2 How did they compare with other nappies you've used in terms of dryness and leakage protection?
I found the nappies didn't leak any more that other brands I had tried, the nappies were soft and felt nice against her skin and didn't course any redness or nappy rash which meant a good night sleep as well as protection when she was crawling and pulling herself up.

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?
can be a bit expensive but I tend to purchase in volume and on deals. I use vouchers and keep an eye out for deals.
I will pay for quality in nappies and tend to stick to the brand I trust.

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 pampers as a brand you could trust as the nappies meant a good night leak free night which is so important especially when our babies are teething or ill

ChimeForChange Sat 11-May-13 22:20:02

My daughter is 14 months and we tried size 4.

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 ok, I didn't think they stood out massively or had any amazing qualities that other nappies don't have.
I would only buy if I had vouchers or were on a good offer.

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

I'm surprised at how good others found them!
I usually get Asda Little Angels and I still think they're better.
These pampers are much better than sainsburys own though - they're awful.
I found that these pampers it soggy really quickly and DD was always damp at nappy changes.

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're average price - I wouldn't say they are 'great' value

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 wouldn't recommend as the best to get - I think they got too soggy too quickly and DD was always damp with them

I'm going to add my comments soon - poor DD has had a sickness bug and its a real struggle to get her to drink anything so they're not getting a proper test at the moment. sad

ThePskettiIncident Sat 11-May-13 22:47:33

Good level of dryness and no leakage. Lasted 12 hours but unsurprisingly huge and heavy nappy in the morning!

My only quibble is the price. Lidl nappies are still the best price and provide all the same benefits (except they are slightly less soft) and cost 30% less than pampers.

As a disposable these nappies are ok at wee containment they do keep the baby dry for 12 hours but their poo containment is quite frankly poo. I have to change him every time hevdoes anything more than a small amount.

The price point I think is expensive and seems to be more than other pampers nappies.

I don't think I will be using them again as they don't contain the poo and they smell really strongly of chemicals. Back to cloth nappies for me.

PolkaDotCups Sun 12-May-13 05:43:23

I already posted some feedback but wanted to update that tonight we did have a leaky one. My DD was unusually crying at 5am (she normally does sleep through) and when I changed her, her lower back was damp and the vest was wet. She was thrashing about raising her legs at 90 degrees and then bringing them down on the mattress with a bang. Repeatedly. I don't think any nappy with a fresh wee would have contained the leakage.

I have still found them fantastically dry the rest of te time!

ChunkyPickle Sun 12-May-13 07:24:06

DS, 2.10 used size 4s (he's about 15 kilos/93cm tall)

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

They're nice - they're soft, thin, don't smell of horrible perfume, and I think this is the first time DS has ever commented on the animals on the front of a nappy. I usually use the cheaper orange Pampers Simply Dry though, and I don't see a significant difference between them (could say the same of the other types in the range - I'm never really sure what's supposed to be different) so I would only buy these if there were no Simply Dry and they were on offer to take them down to a similar price

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

Just fine - we don't have a trouble with leaks (not since he was a tiny baby) - even with complete sloshers (it's a technical term), and the same here. I was slightly surprised because the premium ones normally have elasticated backs, where as these ones don't (like simply dry) but it didn't make any difference - nothing escaped.

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?

Not really - as I said above I don't get what's so great about the more expensive ranges vs. the Simply Dry, so I only buy them if they're on offer down to the same price, or I need a smaller packet to leave around MILs or something similar.

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 Pampers in general, Baby-Dry no more than any other Pampers.

Andcake Sun 12-May-13 08:55:26

I've been trying these on my 8.5 month old ds

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

Bit of a chemical smell, but ds was dry all night but since we night weaned him we have not had any leaks any way. Dry feel next to skin the next morning. I wouldn't use them again but mostly as we aren't having leaks with our usual brand. When ds was feeding a lot at night we used the usual pampers active fit just at night. I'm not sure if they really had less leaks or it was just a believe that a branded product may be better. But back then I probably would have bought a pack just for night time. I'm not a fan of lots of branding and pictures on baby nappies but this wasn't too offensive.

Q2 How did they compare with other nappies you've used in terms of dryness and leakage protection?
Dryness a little better. Only nappy we ever had loads of leaks in was boots on brand.

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?

Seem too expensive for the extra quality. I use just for bums which are great as I get boxes delivered to home and they rarely leak.

Q4 If it came up in conversation, would you recommend Pampers Baby-Dry nappies to other parents? If so, why? If not, why not?
Probably just as a night time safety belt in the early days. But actually now days I just tell everyone about kiddicare and just for bums.

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

Good - no leaks. Nice pictures smile

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

I have used various other brands and rarely have any leaks anyway, however we have had none at all since using Pampers Baby Dry.

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?

The Economy pack for £9.99 seemed good value, in fact I bought a pack from co-op, as this seemed like the best deal in the store. However they didn't seem to sell any of the larger pack so not sure how these compare (as you don't say how many nappies are in each pack). Normally I try to buy nappies in bulk online, and will tend to buy whichever brand has a special 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, if someone specifically asked about Pampers

doh, forgot to say DD is 4 and a half months and wears size 3

KatyaPLVS Sun 12-May-13 10:56:28

I tried size 4 and my baby is 7 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?
The others size 4 I used are bulky, but Pampers Baby-Dry is not, which is a really good point, the only think is the smell. There have a nice design and are soft, but more importantly kept my baby dry all night.
But some poos leave the nappy. I would use them again, I like Pampers, mainly because they are soft and not bulky, even though they are not cheap.
Q2 How did they compare with other nappies you've used in terms of dryness and leakage protection? They are more absorbent and keep dry.
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?
The are more expensive that the supermarked brands, maybe if they go a little cheaper they would be a very good value for money, but saying that with the promotions, it is possible to get them a good price.

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 them, because they do what they said, they are not bulky, they are soft and the design is really good.

bluevanessa Sun 12-May-13 12:44:54

I tried size 3 of pampers baby-dry nappies for my 6 week old DS.

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 surprised at how thin these nappies are but they did as they described and kept my DS dry for the 12 hours. I would use again as I felt they are aiding me to help my DS to start sleeping through the night.

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

I did feel the 12 hours was just a bit long in the nappy as his skin felt damp and tacky when I changed him. His clothing and bedding was dry. The nappy also felt a bit tight in the morning with being full, even tho he has only just gone into size 3 nappies. I would use them again because it saved me on having to put the light on to change him and after his feed get him back to sleep faster, as he was less disturbed during the night and hopefully start sleeping through the night.

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 good value as I would change my DS about twice in the night and with these I didn't have to, so it has saved me on 2 nappies per night that I would use with any other brand or type.

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 these nappies as they do keep baby dry over night and save on extra washing and cost of nappies that you would use with other brands, the only thing I would say is that the 12 hours is a maximum time you should leave on the baby.

HannahLI Sun 12-May-13 13:09:05

My baby is a 13 month old boy and he tried the size 4.

Q1 I really like Pampers as a brand and I like the Baby - dry nappies and they worked really well. However we usually use pampers active fit and I didn't like them as much because they were not as thin as I would have liked and I wasn't sold on the material. On saying that I did like them, my son wore them for 14 hours overnight and although very full he was still dry which is impressive. I like the fun characters on design and I liked the stretchy sticky tabs too as they helped the fit.

Q2 They worked really well for dryness and no leaks at all, I cant use any other brand than pampers and these baby dry lived up to my expectations. The only thing I would say is you have to fold it out before putting it on baby and sometimes the inside sticks to itself which if you don't realise and check can cause problems particularly if it was a novice friend changing!

Q3 I think they are excellent value because I use 1 nappy to every 3 supermarket. On facevalue they seem more expensive but when you factor in how many I really use because of the great dryness they are great value.

Q4 I would recommend and in fact I have to another mum at a mums and tots group. I do like baby-dry but I still love the active fit more!

lindsaymccaughey Sun 12-May-13 15:02:02

1) very impressed with pampers and would definitely use them again as they were a good snug fit for my son and not bulky like other brands.

2) had no leaks during the day or night

3) yes they're a bit more expensive but I think its worth paying a little bit extra for a more reliable nappy. Or you can just stock up when on offer

4) I would recommend pampers baby dry to friends

RedKites Sun 12-May-13 15:29:23

Q1 What was your overall impression of Pampers Baby-Dry nappies? Would you use them again? If so, why? If not, why not?
When I first saw them I was impressed by how slim they were, and they feel softer than other nappies we have used before. Given this, I imagine they would be more comfortable for the baby. We have only been using them at night, for the last week so I haven't reached my final conclusion yet, but I have been impressed with them, and imagine I might buy them again.

Q2 How did they compare with other nappies you've used in terms of dryness and leakage protection?
We haven't had any leaks, and DS2 has worn them for 10-12 hours each night. He doesn't normally leak in our usual brand, but probably does once or twice most weeks, so these do look like they are working better.

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?
We normally use Active Fit, so these are pretty much equivalent in price. Like with Active Fit I would probably only buy when they are on special offer, but I suspect that like Active Fit you can normally find them on offer somewhere. And I have never seen the 'Mega' or 'Giga' packs but might look into where you can buy them!

Q4 If it came up in conversation, would you recommend Pampers Baby-Dry nappies to other parents? If so, why? If not, why not?
If anyone asked me about them, I would say that I have had a positive experience of them. And if someone I knew was having issues with nappies leaking, particularly overnight, I would certainly recommend giving Baby Dry nappies a try.

RedKites Sun 12-May-13 15:30:46

Forgot to say, but I have been using size 4 nappies with DS2, 6mo.

My son is 9 months old and we tested the size 4. First time mum.

Q1 What was your overall impression of Pampers Baby-Dry nappies? Would you use them again?
I would use them for night time sleeps only. I like the Pampers Baby-Dry a lot. But they're not so great for holding poo and they just don't seem to fit as nicely as Pampers Active Fit.

Q2 How did they compare with other nappies you've used in terms of dryness and leakage protection?
We usually use Pampers Active Fit, but since our son has decided he likes sleeping on his front, the Active Fit nappies have leaked. The first night we tried Pampers Baby Dry, Eli slept through! 12 hours! Coincidence or not, he was comfortable - and no leakage!

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?
We're subscribed to the Amazon Family delivery for our Active Fit nappies. We generally get x2 boxes of 84 nappies for around £18. That's usually cheaper than buying at Sainsbury's (or whatever other supermarket) even during offer times! Baby Dry look at being a similar price. As we're going to continue just using them during the night I'd probably look for Baby Dry on offer in Boots etc (so I get my double points!). I wouldn't think it was worth getting an Amazon subscription as Eli will probably grow before they're all used up!

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 certainly recommend Pampers Baby Dry nappies; especially for overnight. I've already told several of my friends who had a few leakages recently. With the baby's now sleeping longer, you need a reliable nappy so people are happy to pay a little extra for a reputable brand of nappy.

DontWannaBeObamasElf Sun 12-May-13 17:53:28

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

Quite thin which is great for fitting several in the nappy bag for a long day out. The designs are very cute, compensates for what I see when I open. The nappy! These are our staple nappies so I will continue to use these until potty training. In all the time we've used Pampers (my daughter is 6 months old) we've had a handful of leaks, mostly caused by the nappy not been fastened tight enough.

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

Much better, my daughter also seems much more comfortable than from when we were using the New Baby nappies. She will have a nappy on for 12 hours through the night and even when she ends up upside down in her bed from wriggling around the nappy is always secure.

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 would say so, in our case we get what we pay for. The packs last us a good 2 weeks.

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 definitely would. They are very secure and we have had a minimal amount of leaks. There has been the odd poo explosion but not surprising at the force my little one can push them out in.

I was picked by MNHQ to review this product, which I received for free. This review is in my own words and reflects my true opinion.

DontWannaBeObamasElf Sun 12-May-13 17:55:20

Forgot to add that we tried size 3 nappies.

Piemother Sun 12-May-13 17:57:20

Oops we had size 3 on 6 month old dd. I agree they are dinky and I fit 3 in a tiny handbag grin

bearcub1 Sun 12-May-13 18:18:08

1 Overall impression is exactly what I would have expected from pampers. Nappies are thin (in a good way) Packagaged tightly in the wrapping, good design. The quality is really high, but exactly what I would have expected from them. Kept baby dry overnight. A few leaks from dirty nappies (6 month old ebf baby, so runny bf poo) but no more or less than usual brand of nappies (Aldi own)
I would use them again, but only when they are on offer.

2 I think leakage and stain protection is exactly the same as usual brand I usually use.

3 I usually use Aldi nappies. They are bulkier than pampers. For value I think Aldi are better value. They performed exactly the same. I buy other branded products if they are on offer or I have a coupon (ideally both!grin) I wouldn't switch brand to pampers exclusively, unless I had lots of money to do so.

4 pampers are the leading brand. I would recommend them and use them solely if the price was as competitive as supermarket brand/Aldi.

Thank you for letting my baby try them out! Love a free nappy gringringrin

jacobsmammy Sun 12-May-13 18:26:37

Q1 What was your overall impression of Pampers Baby-Dry nappies? Would you use them again? If so, why? If not, why not?
i loved these nappies,, and would defo use pampers again!

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

Q4 If it came up in conversation, would you recommend Pampers Baby-Dry nappies to other parents? If so, why? If not, why not?
wu happly recommend this product, had no leaks, lovely and soft and very reliable x

TheOtherHelenMumsnet (MNHQ) Sun 12-May-13 18:56:01

Just adding feedback from HarshaVarsani:
"The nappies are good for keeping urine away from my baby's bottom but to be honest Pampers active fit do the same job. My baby doesn't poo at night so not sure how well these nappies are for that. The nappies are very colourful and stretchy so they adapt well to my baby's bottom and waist. I would recommend them to other mums."

onutza Sun 12-May-13 19:11:31

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

Nice design, soft and kept my baby dry over night! I would definitely use them again. my baby feels comfortable and have good absorbency.

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

No leakage at all, and my baby's skin was kept dried all the time when he weared these nappies.

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?

As quality yes, they are good value for money!

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 wolud recommend to other parents, because they are good quality, keeps baby's skin dry and have good absorbency compared with other nappies.

Puckle Sun 12-May-13 19:35:50

Size 3 on my 11 month old son (DS2)

1). A great nappy that didn't feel bulky, was soft, fitted well around the leg area and felt very soft. I've always used the slightly move expensive Pampers Activfit but will be buying these in the future, especially as we had no poo leaks which has been a problem with the Activfit nappies (for us). Tried a few of the different supermarket own brands with DS1 and think the extra cost if the Pampers is well worth it! Also really like the simple, 'unbranded' characters on the nappies.

2). No leaks ( up back or legs) and didn't seem to have that very strong wet nappy smell in the morning. DS's skin did feel a bit 'damp' when changing his nappies but I've noticed this with all nappies we've tried. Pampers are arguably the best in terms of skin only feeling damp instead of wet.

3). Definitely good value for money! Not only did we use less of them but there were no clothes ( or bed linen) to wash thanks to a leak!

4). Would definitely recommend them!

Featherbag Sun 12-May-13 19:41:45

My DS is 19mo and I was trying size 4.

Q1 - my overall impression was that they are great for daytime, but for my DS not so good at night. He usually sleeps 12 hours straight, but woke early soaked through. I normally use Pampers Active Fit for night time and supermarket own brand during the day, and can't see any benefit of Baby Dry over either of these.

Q2 - think I've covered this question above. When they leaked it tended to be out of the top of the nappy so DS had a wet tummy.

Q3 - I don't think they're good value for money compared with Active Fit, which cost the same but leak less. During the day I tend to use Aldi or Asda nappies which suit me and DS just fine, so there would be no added value for me in switching to Baby Dry.

Q4 - I don't think I would, although I have recommended Active Fit to others.

Wibblytummy Sun 12-May-13 19:42:40

Q1
Yes, I'd use them again. They have been a great option for a night time nappy. In comparison to some of the other nappies my DS has had (even the active fit pampers nappies) he wakes up with a much less bulky and heavy nappy even though he is a big wetter at night. They also were great for long car journeys and as we've moved house during the trial it was great to know he was in a solid reliable dry nappy amongst all the chaos.

Q2
We've had one leak since trying them out but wouldn't hold this against the nappy. The dryness is much better than other disposable nappies we've tried.

Q3
I do find the prices quite expensive and on a budget weekly food shop I could be inclined to go for the cheaper alternatives that I know work.

Q4
I would, probably not on my own accord but if someone was mentioning their child was a heavy night wetter and they needed a reliable overnight nappy I would definitely recommend these.

Thanks so much for the trial pack, it was greatly appreciated!

Wibblytummy Sun 12-May-13 19:44:19

P.S We also loved the design on the nappy. Dora is not a big favourite in this house and DS always said "No Dora" but happily came and pointed out the animals he wanted to wear on his nappy at change time.

Pumble Sun 12-May-13 19:58:49

Size 3 on my 5 month DD2

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

Kept her dry all night with no leaks or wet patches. Given she is sleeping 12 hours, the last thing I want is leaking nappies waking her up. She doesn't poo overnight so don't know what they are like at containing it!

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

The only other nappies I have used overnight are new baby nappies and I would say these keep DD2 much drier.

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 would try to buy the nappies when they were on offer or I had vouchers but if this wasn't the case, I would still buy them as I think they are so reliable.

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, and have done so.

Nigglenaggle Sun 12-May-13 20:08:54

Tried the size 4s on my son who is 15months old and around 13kg

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

Absolutely we'll probably stick with these or the active fit for the duration now. DC has very sensitive skin and its the only nappy we've tried where his skin looks normal - no redness or itchiness.

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

At the start we used cheap disposables and eco-nappies - almost useless with regard to preventing leaks. We were cloth nappy fans for a long time and they were great as far as leaks went, but as he grew and they got tighter the nappy rash flourished - he was getting ulcers, not good. Tescos own brand have come the closest, but sometimes in the morning they were damp to the touch and his skin would be red and itchy. We have moved to the pampers active fit and to be honest they are almost as good as the baby dry. The active fit fit better, and the baby dry feel dryer in the morning, but haven't had leaks with either and his skin looks great now. Pampers is the only type of nappy that has ticked all the boxes.

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?

Well worth paying the extra for, especially if you have a child with sensitive skin. The quality is just better - the nappy comes off bone dry in the morning.

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

Absolutely - think I've said it all above really.

Pampers Baby Dry:
Carry Pack - £6.49
Economy Pack - £9.99
Jumbo Box - £12.99
Mega Box - £17.49
Giga Box - £22.99

TheMouseDancing Sun 12-May-13 20:19:41

Q1 What was your overall impression of Pampers Baby-Dry nappies? Would you use them again? If so, why? If not, why not?
very happy with these nappies, they are nice and slim and fit my dd well. Pampers are the only brand I use. I have previously tried other brands but found that my dd had nappy rash with these so went back to pampers.

Q2 How did they compare with other nappies you've used in terms of dryness and leakage protection?
They are very good at keeping my dd dry throught the night, there has only been a few occasions where she has slept for 12 hours and done lots of wees where there has been some slight leekage and her bottom has been a bit damp, but overall she is usually dry at her first nappy change in the morning.

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 the nappies are quite expensive compared to other brands so I tend to wait until they are on offer in the supermarket to reduce costs.

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 pampers, they keep my dd dry and free from nappy rash and I dont have to wake her to change her nappy during the night.

Bigspring Sun 12-May-13 20:32:13

My baby is 9 months had size 3

Very impressed with the nappies, would definitly use again.... No leaks and great overnight, also feel good unlike some cheaper nappies

Never use Huggies or boots own as tend to get leakage where as pampers I didn't.

The price is quite high so because of that I'd only buy them when on offer.

Yes would recommend

Ellellie Sun 12-May-13 20:32:19

14 month old DS in size 4

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

Nice handy size pack, nice and compact. The nappies are slimmer than you expect too. I would use them again.

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

Unbeatable! I've tried other brands and overnight they really come into their own, we have never (touch wood) had a leak over night from pampers.

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 don't leak! It's easy to be drawn into the false economy of baby items but paying in the middle for pampers makes all the difference.

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 indeed, if it came up in conversation, as they are the only nappy that haven't leaked overnight.

mamij Sun 12-May-13 20:45:00

Tested size 4 on my 18 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?

It feels soft against my baby's skin compared to Huggies, which feels "plasticky". I've always used Pampers but started using Huggies and supermarket brands because of the cost. But the other brands can't beat Pampers in terms of softness or absorbency.

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

They kept my baby lovely and dry. No clamminess or nappy rash here! I've never found them to leak for wees, but they did when my LO had a tummy bug (mainly up her back, but not through the legs)/

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?

Slightly more expensive than other brands, but good value when they are on offer. Also, have to change my LO less frequently because of the great absorbency, so this balances out the cost.

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

Definitely! Feels lovely against my LO's skin, nice design, and no nappy rash! Plus, they didn't leak, even overnight and sometimes for a whole day when we've been out and about, and too busy/can't find a convenient place to change!

blondiep14 Sun 12-May-13 20:48:02

Testing size 4 on 7 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?
Overall impression is that they are brilliant.
I always come back to Pampers, especially for babies under 18 months or so.

Q2 How did they compare with other nappies you've used in terms of dryness and leakage protection?
They're much drier, don't leak and don't get 'full' and cold like some cheaper nappies.

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.
First glance they seem more expensive but one supermarket usually has an offer on if you shop around.
Cheaper nappies need changing more often.

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. They don't leak and are very effective.

I have a 6 month old DS who wears the size 4 nappies. He weighs about 20-25lbs.

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 usually use Pampers so wanted to see if they could be better and they haven't disappointed. I would definitely use these again as they kept my baby drier for longer. The extra layer obviously works. Was impressed that even though they do have an extra layer they don't seem any thicker than the original Pampers nappies.

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

I've tried a lot of other nappies on the market (including Huggies, Sainsburys, Boots, Tesco, Aldi, etc) and Pampers beats them all hands down for me. I've got a very wriggly baby so I need to know that his nappy isn't going to wriggle off him! The fitting around his legs and tummy is very good so leaks very rarely happen. Dryness as well is also really good, even after a full nights sleep (10-12 hours) it's like he's only been wearing it a couple of hours.

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 admit Pampers Baby-Dry certainly aren't the cheapest nappies but when I was using other nappies I found I had to change my baby more often. With Pampers I use fewer nappies per day and so in effect it kind of works out cheaper (if that makes sense!) and who wouldn't want to spend less time changing nappies grin

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 Pampers Baby-Dry to other parents. A happy botty means a happy baby smile

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

I tried size 3 nappies for my 14 week old - I wasn't impressed with them go be honest, I found I was changing them frequently as his bum always felt squishy and they seemed to sag. They also smelt quite strongly. I tried them over night - I don't usually change nappies in the night - but in the mornings he felt damp, not leaked straight through wet patches but the whole bottom area was lightly damp. To be fair, his bottom felt dry so he wasn't lying in wet and he didn't get any nappy rash etc. I wouldn't buy them again.

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

I find Aldi nappies are good and use them during the day normally, and use a pampers baby dry over night. I prefer the baby dry that I was using before, although they are a size 2 so maybe that makes a difference. We had a couple of poonami episodes that werent contained, but I am yet to find a nappy that doesn't explode when he poos.

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 very expensive compared to Aldi nappies and as I'm changing them as frequently they don't come out on top in value for money.

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 wouldn't, but I would recommend pampers newborn baby dry.

Size 4 on my 2.2 yr old DS

Q1
Overall impression - good. Stay in place on my active toddler day and night.

Q2
Excellent absorbency, DS stays dry overnight 12+hrs. Better than supermarket own brands that I have tried.

Q3
Due to their good absorbency, I do think they provide good value for money as you don't need to use as many.

Q4
Yes, I would recommend them and will continue to use them on my DS.

We tested size 4 on our 12 month old baby.

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

We are big fans of Pampers in our household and have used them on all three of my children. I prefer the 'baby-dry' pampers to the other types e.g. active fit because they seem to absorb more and keep baby drier.

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

Pampers always come up best for us in terms of both dryness and leakage protection. Other nappies end up being a false economy as we end up with leaks and then more washing so I don't think it is worth getting cheaper brands. With Pampers we still have the occasional leak e.g. if there is a poop explosion then it is tough for any nappy to hold it all in.

Occasional leaks in the morning if nappy gets really full of wee too.

However, just using the next size up at nighttime seems to solve this problem.

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?

Yes - because they stop me having to wash clothes / bedding constantly with leaks as I have to if we ever use another brand. Nappies are pricey anyway - but it is worth getting the best ones and for us pampers is the best!

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 have never had a problem with pampers and have been using them over 3 children over the course of 9 years. I also love the one pack one vaccine initiative too as they are helping others.

janey223 Sun 12-May-13 21:06:38

I tested size 4 for my 16m old DS, I thought they weren't going to fit after outgrowing another brand and in other brands he needs size 5 for bedtime absorbency.

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 surprised they were so good (not sure why, I used to use then)! DS would always leak through size 4 and had to go to 5 for bedtime, in 4 nights he leaked slightly this morning after his morning bottle. They even survived DS' extra bedtime bottle for the past 2 days.

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

Very good, we've had one small leak in 4 days which is good for him as he is a wee machine. DS normally wears 'easy ups' in the daytime and has been relatively well behaved getting them on.

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 have been needing less nappies than usual, only about 4 compared to normally using 6. I'd never thought about this before so if bought on offer they would be good value but I'd still find them expensive otherwise as at full price a normal pack is about 9.99 compared to supermarket brands who are often 2 for £10.

Saying that they are a nappy I used to keep for bedtime use, not sure why I stopped.

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 them, especially for bedtime, they do feel nicer than other brands and are the most absorbent but they do still smell!!!

Mimmi78 Sun 12-May-13 21:20:05

Tried size 4 on my 7 month old boy.
1) Good quality, we have had lots of issues with leaking nappies on our boy, wakes him up and requires a whole baby clothing and bed change, thus disturning his sleep. This was leak free and quiet night (at last!)
2) above says it all, first dry sheet ans bed clothes night in a long time. The elasticated edging contained a particularly wet poop!
3) The cost is ok, they are dearer than some of the other brands I have used from Aldi, Lidl & Sainsbury. The real comparison is against Boots own brand baby dry, which are around £12 for 100 I think at the moment. I feel like the cheaper brands have been a false economy for me as I need to change him more and the leakage issues at night do more than use nappies, tries my patience!! Maybe I would use these when I know he is sleeping and the value brand in the day when he is changed often enough to prevent leakage!
4) Would happily recommend for those who are not seeking a value brand & require real leak protection

WannaSplitAPineapple Sun 12-May-13 21:39:11

Please state the age of your baby/child and the size of nappy you were trying in your response.
tried size 3 on 10 month old DS. I struggle to find nappies to fit DS as he is average height for his age but very skinny so most nappies are too big on the waist. These fit very well.

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 and I would continue to use them as I know they don't leak and I'm not worried about DS being in the same nappy I overnight

Q2 How did they compare with other nappies you've used in terms of dryness and leakage protection?
DS has had a bug recently and I tried 7 different nappies! These were the only ones that didn't leak! Out of the 7 nappies there were 4 different brands including one other pampers.

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?
having tried cheaper and more expensive nappies I always return to these as not only do I have to change them less frequently due to the dryness but the less leaks means less washing of DS's clothes. Taking all that into account they are certainly the best value.

Q4 If it came up in conversation, would you recommend Pampers Baby-Dry nappies to other parents? If so, why? If not, why not?
After the week of nappy explosions I have had I certainly will recommend Pampers Baby Dry. For me they are the best fit and best value.

Meringue33 Sun 12-May-13 21:45:47

Please state the age of your baby/child and the size of nappy you were trying in your response.

4 months - size 3

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

Like others say, vg. Fit well and do not leak wee. Only thing that worries me is the blue chemicals. I use them at night time but not during the day as I worry (probably irrationally) that the chemicals may be bad for my baby. I've read stuff online about disposable nappies causing infertility in boy babies which wories me.

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

Best so far. Does not protect from massive poos however, but I'm not sure that would be possible. If Pampers could design a nappy that stopped two day poos from leaking, that would change my life!!

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?

Reasonable, still think nappies are expensive though.

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.

Cherrybright Sun 12-May-13 21:49:17

Q1 What was your overall impression of Pampers Baby-Dry nappies? Would you use them again? If so, why? If not, why not?
I liked them, they have cute designs on the front, they are soft, not bulky and feel well made. They dont smell as bad as some other pampers I used last week. I would use them again if on offer, they are better than cheap supermarket ones.

Q2 How did they compare with other nappies you've used in terms of dryness and leakage protection?
We have had quite a few dry nights, and lots of dry days. Last night Dd woke crying as her nappy was so full, and it became uncomfortable. She has had poo explode out of them once and 1 slight leakage. I think this is around the same amount as using pampers simply dry nappies the previous week.
Any other nappies we have used are not as abdorbant as these two. We had no rashes with baby dry.

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 quite expensive- but they are good quality. If they were not on offer as much and I didnt get coupons I would probably only buy them for night time.

Q4 If it came up in conversation, would you recommend Pampers Baby-Dry nappies to other parents? If so, why? If not, why not?
Im not sure, I think pampers nappies are good in general, and I would recomend pampers as a brand, especially now huggies are not for sale. but baby dry didnt keep my dd any dryer, and didnt give her 12 hours sleep last night, so I couldn't recommend them 100% as the best.

Cherrybright Sun 12-May-13 21:50:28

Forgot to add
Tried size 4 age 19 months

SuiGeneris Sun 12-May-13 21:55:29

Q1- how did I find them?
Very good but no different to the Baby-Dry I have been using for the past three years. Not sure what is new about them.

Q2-comparison with existing nappies

I use Pampers Baby Dry and Actuve Fit (depending on which I have to hand. The test nappies seem no different from the existing BDs.

Will return with the second half...

Klaga Sun 12-May-13 21:59:25

I tested the size 4 nappies on my 10 month boy and I have to say, I was not very impressed.They have a specific smell when wet and occasionally leak.
The good thing is that they are thinn, soft and very flexible.

I'm not shure with recommending them. Beffore i test this pampers i was using pampers simpley dry and there was no leakage and no streange smell! I will stay with simpley dry with my boy.

We tried the size 4 nappies on my DD aged 18 months

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

The first night we tried them she had a leak and I had to change her at half four in the morning so was not very impressed but didn't write review after the first try, thought we better give it a bit longer. Since then we have had no more leaks thankfully.

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

The last brand we used we were happy with and never really had leaks unless it was a heavy overnight nappy or an explosive teething one! I do feel the skin can be wet after a nappy has been on 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?
Competitively priced for other branded nappies but supermarkets own brands tend to be cheaper.

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

I probably would because despite our first mishap they have been reliable since.

mrsB256 Sun 12-May-13 22:36:37

We tried a size 3 for our 12wk old little boy smile

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

We'd definitely use them again. They don't feel cheap compared to some nappies & didn't seem to have that nappy 'rustle' under his clothes as we've found with some we've tried smile We've also been really impressed with them in terms of dryness and their ability to contain a poonami!

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

They seem to keep the wetness away from the skin for longer than other nappies but I'm not sure it'd make 12hrs as we have the occasional leak sad Never out of the legs but just from the top of the nappy, on his side. It does however seem to contain a poonami pretty well although there are some that there's no stopping!

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 definitely think they're good value for money, particularly when they're on offer somewhere or you have a voucher or both, & certainly better value for bigger packs! I seem to use less nappies with these than with other brands which evens out the fact they're slightly more expensive.

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'd definitely reccomend them to other parents too. We've not had any real problems (other than the occasional leak as mentioned above) & the price isn't that high when you factor in the reduced number of nappies we use smile

Tottyandmarchpane Sun 12-May-13 22:50:21

Q1 What was your overall impression of Pampers Baby-Dry nappies? Would you use them again? If so, why? If not, why not? Nice, not too bulky, kept my 10 month old dry all night. I would definitely use them again.

Q2 How did they compare with other nappies you've used in terms of dryness and leakage protection? Pampers Active Fit is the only other nappy I have found (and therefore use regularly) which keeps my DD dry all night and even this leaks sometimes so I thought they compared very favourably.

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? Seem to be priced about the same as other nappies so average value for money!

Q4 If it came up in conversation, would you recommend Pampers Baby-Dry nappies to other parents? If so, why? If not, why not? Definitely would recommend as onlY one of two types of nappy that kept my baby dry all night

Tottyandmarchpane Sun 12-May-13 22:51:28

Forgot to add that baby is 10 months old and I tried size 4.

Pauline73 Sun 12-May-13 22:56:07

I tested the size 4 on my 16 month old.

Q1 - I did like them. I used to use pampers baby dry on my son but had stopped using them with my daughter as I had found that they leaked a lot round the tummy area when I used them overnight. That said, the nappies are the thinnest and softest that I have used. I wanted to take part in the trial to see if they had improved. I am glad to say that they seemed to last through the night (about 10.5 hours) for us. I would use them again as although I have preferred using "Huggies" with daughter, since these are no longer being produced then I think that pampers is the only other real option, all other nappies I have tried seem hard and stiff in comparison and don't hold as much wee.

Q2 - I prefer Huggies for leak and wetness protection but since these are no longer being produced then Pampers is definitely my favourite brand. I don't think that the own brands can compete in terms of softness or leak protection or longevity between changes.

Q3 - I think Pampers are more expensive but since I don't have to change them so often then I do think they offer value for money.

Q4 - happy to recommend and have done so.
