Nice and soft, fit great. Good absorbency and price point.

She was very happy to wear these day or night

1. Which Nutmeg nappies or pants did you test and how well did the nappies perform in terms of overall fit, leakage during day or night, and the skin dryness around the nappy area?

I tested Nutmeg Ultra Dry Pants size 5 on DD, 19 months. The fit was comfy but a little narrow on the bum for DD and so would often ride up at one side or other. Despite this we had no leakage day or night. No dryness to report.

2. What did you like about the Nutmeg nappies?

I liked the look of them and their reliability in terms of no leaks.

3. How did your child feel wearing the Nutmeg nappies?

DD seemed very happy in them.

4. If you could change or improve anything about the Nutmeg nappies, what would that be and why?

I’d make the fit wider for DD’s squidgy bum.

5. Would you recommend the Nutmeg nappies to others

Yes I would.

1. Which Nutmeg nappies or pants did you test and how well did the nappies perform in terms of overall fit, leakage during day or night, and the skin dryness around the nappy area?

We tested size 6 nappies. Got was lovely and snug, loved the feel of the nappies, very soft, comfortable material. Had some Leakage at night from the whole nappy, it also expanded hugely at night. Skin dryness was good, no rash in nappy area at all

2. What did you like about the Nutmeg nappies?

Material and fit. Very soft

3. How did your child feel wearing the Nutmeg nappies?

She was very happy to wear these, no complaints

4. If you could change or improve anything about the Nutmeg nappies, what would that be and why?

They seemed to expand to quite big with only a small amount of liquid/urine. Wouldn't necessarily put me off buying as I do change her regularly through the day, but her bottom half was damp sometimes on a morning

5. Would you recommend the Nutmeg nappies to others?

Yes, as a nappy for during the day

LighthouseLass Wed 19-Aug-20 15:59:50

1. Which Nutmeg nappies or pants did you test and how well did the nappies perform in terms of overall fit, leakage during day or night, and the skin dryness around the nappy area?

Size 5 pants. They were a good overall fit and I was happy with skin dryness. We did have a leak one day, so not 100%, but probably any range of nappies leaks sometimes.

2. What did you like about the Nutmeg nappies?

They feel nice and soft, not plasticky, and are stretchy. They seem comfortable.

3. How did your child feel wearing the Nutmeg nappies?

They can't talk yet, so I'm not sure! There didn't seem to be any problems.

Nice and soft, good fit and like the turtle picture

More pics than just turtles

5. Would you recommend the Nutmeg nappies to others?

Yes

Gin4thewin Wed 19-Aug-20 16:00:57

nappies fit really well, tabs didnt slip down and no leaks. Not being aware of what the price is per pack, i would certainly buy if on par price wise with 'little angels' or lidls/Aldis.

beansonbread Wed 19-Aug-20 16:01:10

1. Which Nutmeg nappies or pants did you test and how well did the nappies perform in terms of overall fit, leakage during day or night, and the skin dryness around the nappy area?

I tested Nutmeg Ultra Dry nappies size 6 on DS who has just turned 2. I experienced no leakage at all and his skin stayed dry. They fit well but often slipped inwards on his bum so could do with being wider in that area.

2. What did you like about the Nutmeg nappies?

I liked the fact they didn’t leak. They also felt and smelt pleasant when taking them out the packet.

3. How did your child feel wearing the Nutmeg nappies?

DS seemed ok in them but due to the lack over width over his bum he did pull at this area quite a few times through the day.

4. If you could change or improve anything about the Nutmeg nappies, what would that be and why?

The bum area needs to be wider and the design on the nappy could be brighter. DS likes the bright colours on other brands as well as looking out for different patterns/pictures at each many change - he missed that with the Nutmeg nappies.

5. Would you recommend the Nutmeg nappies to others

Yes I think I would, most likely for smaller children than my DS.

1. Which Nutmeg nappies or pants did you test and how well did the nappies perform in terms of overall fit, leakage during day or night, and the skin dryness around the nappy area?
We tested the nappy pants in a size 4
I compared them to my usual pampers premium pants and these felt equally soft and had a similar all round stretch which I liked. The only difference was that they were shorter on the waistband so found that they rolled down.
DD's skin was always dry so no issues there.
We had two incidences with leaking, once during the night and once during the day after less than two hours wear.

2. What did you like about the Nutmeg nappies?
Soft, stretchy, easy removal and a sticky tab on the back for disposal

3. How did your child feel wearing the Nutmeg nappies?
She seemed happy

4. If you could change or improve anything about the Nutmeg nappies, what would that be and why?
Higher waistband and better absorbency

5. Would you recommend the Nutmeg nappies to others?
No, due to leaking

1. Which Nutmeg nappies or pants did you test and how well did the nappies perform in terms of overall fit, leakage during day or night, and the skin dryness around the nappy area?
- I tested the Size 4 Nappy Pants on my 18 month old daughter. I found the fit perfect on my DD, they were quite slim which is what I liked.

2. What did you like about the Nutmeg nappies?
- I liked the physical appearance of them, nice and light colours so they do not show underneath clothing. Alongside that, I really liked the fit.

3. How did your child feel wearing the Nutmeg nappies?
- She was happy in them, no soreness or rashes. No leaks overnight either!

4. If you could change or improve anything about the Nutmeg nappies, what would that be and why?
- I found them quite hard to rip, which is both a good and bad thing! Good because DD can’t do it but bad when I was in a rush. I would perhaps make that slightly easier.

5. Would you recommend the Nutmeg nappies to others?
- Yes of course, they didn’t leak, look appealing and did the job. Thank you Nutmeg!

The softness and fit. They felt very secure

Nothing really. There was one occasion which he felt slightly damp but I think he’d just done a big wee

5. Would you recommend the Nutmeg nappies to others?
Yes

Hercwasonaroll Wed 19-Aug-20 16:03:36

1. Which Nutmeg nappies or pants did you test and how well did the nappies perform in terms of overall fit, leakage during day or night, and the skin dryness around the nappy area?

Ultra dry nappies size 3. They were fine during the day, unfortunately we have had 2 overnight leaks. We previously used morrisons nappies and this has never happened before.

2. What did you like about the Nutmeg nappies?
Very thin feeling when in, not at all bulky.

3. How did your child feel wearing the Nutmeg nappies?
They can't speak but seemed OK!

4. If you could change or improve anything about the Nutmeg nappies, what would that be and why?
They could have been more absorbent overnight. Possibly this was due to the design or sleep position of my lo as they were dry at the back but leaked through the front.

5. Would you recommend the Nutmeg nappies to others?

Sadly not for overnight. We currently use morrisons nappies however and have had no leaks.

Which Nutmeg nappies or pants did you test and how well did the nappies perform in terms of overall fit, leakage during day or night, and the skin dryness around the nappy area?
I tested size 2 newborn nappies. The nappies performed well with no leakage and skin was dry.

2. What did you like about the Nutmeg nappies?
I like the softness of them. Not too stiff like other brands

3. How did your child feel wearing the Nutmeg nappies?
Child couldn’t tell me but seemed happy and looked comfortable

4. If you could change or improve anything about the Nutmeg nappies, what would that be and why?
The sizing didn’t match other brands. They could do with being wider around the waistband for the size 2 we tried to match other brands

5. Would you recommend the Nutmeg nappies to others?
Yes

NwStStJt Wed 19-Aug-20 16:05:01

1. I tested the size 4 baby dry nappies on my 11 month old son. They fit perfectly, no leakage day or night and my son suffers from eczema but no skin concerns at all wearing these.

2. I really liked the cute design on the nappies and in particular it stating front and back which is simple but with a wriggly baby that doesn’t like to stay still for nappy changes it’s great to quickly glance and see if you have it the correct way around!
The material was soft and thin not bulky.

3. My child seemed very comfortable wearing these nappies.

4. No changes for me personally as I had no issues with these nappies.

5. I would definitely recommend these nappies especially as an alternative to anyone using any other supermarket brand nappies like myself.

1. Which Nutmeg nappies or pants did you test and how well did the nappies perform in terms of overall fit, leakage during day or night, and the skin dryness around the nappy area?
We tried the Nutmeg ultra dry size 4 nappies. They fit pretty well but gaped slightly at the back. However we had no leakage, day or night. There was also no dryness.
2. What did you like about the Nutmeg nappies?
These nappies were super soft. I also like that the front and back are clearly labelled which made changing easy when you're overtired 😂
3. How did your child feel wearing the Nutmeg nappies?
She seemed perfectly happy and comfortable.
4. If you could change or improve anything about the Nutmeg nappies, what would that be and why?
I think these were slightly less absorbant that other nappies. Also the design was a bit boring in comparison to other nappies but obviously this isn't as important as performance!
5. Would you recommend the Nutmeg nappies to others?
Definitely! Especially if the price is reasonable.

Softness and dryness.

Happy, no different to usual brand.

Softer than other brands, reasonable price

1. Which Nutmeg nappies or pants did you test and how well did the nappies perform in terms of overall fit, leakage during day or night, and the skin dryness around the nappy area?

We tested size 5 pants. These were great overnight 12+ hours, no leakage. However during the day they didn't work well for us at all. We needed multiple clothing changes a day after wee leaks.
Her skin was dry though. No soreness. They seemed to fit her ok so can't work out why they were great at nighttime, less so during the day.

2. What did you like about the Nutmeg nappies?

They were so soft. Much softer than the usual brand so can imagine they felt very comfortable. And super stretchy and looked comfortable.

3. How did your child feel wearing the Nutmeg nappies?

No difference in her compared to regular brand.

4. If you could change or improve anything about the Nutmeg nappies, what would that be and why?

Just the leaking during the day. But I don't know why that was to know what to change.

5. Would you recommend the Nutmeg nappies to others?

Torn here. Probably not due to the leaks during the day. But for nighttime they were great.

Thanks for letting us test them. smile

StuntNun Wed 19-Aug-20 16:07:29

1. Which Nutmeg nappies or pants did you test and how well did the nappies perform in terms of overall fit, leakage during day or night, and the skin dryness around the nappy area?
Size 6 pants. They fit perfectly - my child is quite skinny but they stayed up fine. We didn't have any leakages during the test which is good news because we have had leakages with other brands in the past. He didn't have any issues with skin dryness but he never has really.

2. What did you like about the Nutmeg nappies?
The design was appealing to my son. They were easy to put on and take off and he could pull them up and down himself if he wanted to use the toilet while wearing them.

3. How did your child feel wearing the Nutmeg nappies?
He liked having a new type of "night pants" to try and he said he liked the design because it looked like a cloud.

4. If you could change or improve anything about the Nutmeg nappies, what would that be and why?
It would be nice if there were two different designs in the pack. Sometimes my son likes to do eeny meeny miny moe to choose his clothing.

5. Would you recommend the Nutmeg nappies to others?
Yes they were effective and seem to be comparable in price to other supermarket own brands.

Sleeplessnights1234 Wed 19-Aug-20 16:07:48

I had requested the pants but nappies were delivered.

1. Which Nutmeg nappies or pants did you test and how well did the nappies perform in terms of overall fit, leakage during day or night, and the skin dryness around the nappy area?

Size 6 nappies. Didn't do well for overnight and gave him a rash (he has sensitive skin)

2. What did you like about the Nutmeg nappies?

Seemed soft

3. How did your child feel wearing the Nutmeg nappies?

Seemed happy but came out in rash

4. If you could change or improve anything about the Nutmeg nappies, what would that be and why?

5. Would you recommend the Nutmeg nappies to others?

No

1. Which Nutmeg nappies or pants did you test and how well did the nappies perform in terms of overall fit, leakage during day or night, and the skin dryness around the nappy area?

We used the pants for my 6 yr old for nighttime. I was really impressed with these! They fitted well, no leaks at all and she stayed dry all night.

2. What did you like about the Nutmeg nappies? I liked how they were slightly more snug than other brands. There was no gaping anywhere.

3. How did your child feel wearing the Nutmeg nappies? These were an absolute hit. DD has sensory issues so texture and fit is important. If something isn't "right" she can't wear it. Unlike some of the other supermarket own brands these are lovely and soft.

4. If you could change or improve anything about the Nutmeg nappies, what would that be and why? DD said she would like to have dinosaurs on the nappies please grin

5. Would you recommend the Nutmeg nappies to others? Definitely! We like them so much we will be swapping to this brand.
