Sorry me and my butter fingers! That should have read they (Pampers) have NO problem handing out money.

i can't believe i missed this thread. been using pampers on 5wo dd along with reusables and she has the most horrendous nappy rash. i thought it was the reusables so increased the amount of pampers i was using from just night time to most of the day as well.

well! no wonder her rash isn't getting better if its the pampers causing chemical type burns!!shock

i shall never buy pampers again. poor dds bum, back to reusables and own brand nappies i think!smile

Well I never, I have a 14 week old and have been using Pampers, firstly New Baby and now Active Fit. We frequently end up with poo leaks from the sides and up the back. My son is not discreet, so the moment I hear it I'm rushing to change him to try and stop this covering his clothes/cot/car seat. I assumed this was totally normal (I am a naive first time Mum obviously) but after reading this I see that it is the nappy design; I will give the Tescos ones a go I think.

I used pampers for 6 months but in the last month the baby dry nappies have been rubbish. we have had so many leaks during the night, I'm fed up of changing sheets, babygros and sleeping bags in the middle of the night. I switched to the Tesco nappies but the same thing happened again last night. I don't know what to do, any ideas? Thanks

Dd used pampers until she grew out of the newborn size. Then they changed the design of the nappies and they leaked all over her. We were up at least twice each night changing soaking wet sheets and baby gros.
The new pampers design is rubbish. Apparently the company says that babies do not wet the back of their nappies. UTTER RUBBISH. Dd always wets the back of her nappies.
We switched to huggies dry and natural fits, which both are excellent and do not leak. We are now trying reusables to cut back on the environmental impact of discarding disposables and also to save money.
I am surprised that pampers have not switched back to the previous design. They must be losing a fortune. So many families are unhappy with their products.

we had all these problems with pampers active fit so we changed to boots own active stretch but they didnt blow me away.

so we tried sainsburys active ones ( also in a purple pack) and they seem great. thick and reliable, the sticky tabs are great too, alot more adhesive than others ive used.and of course theyre cheaper than pampers.

I saw the pampers on offer in morrisons the other day. two of the large packs (60 odd) for £10. obviously not selling as well as they'd like!!

Another vote for Lidl's Toujours brand - they were great, and CHEAP! Used them for ds without complaint, and will be using them for dd when she arrives.

The new pampers don't work well for us either and we've also had a spate of the tabs coming off the babydry ones. The tabs on Tesco's own brand weren't very sticky and DS had a very sore bum with them. With hindsight this may have also had something to do with teething, but not fully convinced. Our best experience recently has been with Sainsbury's own brand and I'd recommend them totally.

Why oh why can't people just leave a good thing alone???

IMoveTheStars Mon 23-Aug-10 12:46:50

Yep, another vote for Toujours, they fit really well and haven't had a leak since switching to them overnight (which we had with Tesco and Pampers) and not more nappy rash (which DS got really badly with huggies and pampers active fit)

Have used Pampers on my toddler for 1 1/2 years with no problem and now suddenly the Baby Dry with 'sleep layer' is causing an awful rash - so bad that there was blood in the nappy - there were open sores within a couple of hours of wearing them. No more pampers!!

Just don't change to Huggies!

They aren't going to be selling nappies in the UK very soon, think it's in the next couple of months.

Zombie thread...

Crap! I didn't even notice.

Oldladypillow Mon 17-Dec-12 00:41:20

I don't usually have pampers but was given some for dd2 who is only a few weeks old. I did notice they feel leak after a v short time I was surprised. I usually buy nature baby Eco nappies - much more reliable and cheaper.
I triedAldi nappies. V cheap and non leaky but they smell awful when you take them off like the baby bum has been sealed in which is a bit rank
