My daughter is 11'weeks tomorrow and we are using Pampers 'new baby' size 2 nappies. When should we use 'simply dry' or 'baby dry' I think they both start from size 3 but at around 11lb I think they could be ok for my baby? Do they keep baby drier? What's the differnece. She sleeps well at night and wondered if a nappy that doesn't need changing as much would help her sleep even better?!

We use active fit for the day and baby dry for the night.

We found that we moved on when DS wouldn't physically fit into the new born nappies any more.

With the baby dry napies we've found we don't have to do a change until 5-6 in the morning, but cos we still feed at 3-5 we might as well do a change when we feed.

we used the new baby ones until she grew out of them (they are brilliant for that newborn stick poo!) and then moved to active fit for during the day and baby dry at night.

The babydry ones are brilliant. I can put DD in one at bedtime and don't need to change her until she wakes in the morning. I have also been known to pop her in one when we are going somewhere where changing her is a problem as they have extra absorbency.

We only use Simply Dry in the day and pull ups at night. Heard some bad reports from friends about the green stuff reacting to skin in the Baby Dry!

as others said, use the newborn ones as long as you can (they are SO soft and lovely) then baby dry. Active fit aren't really necessary until they are moving about and even then the BD ones are fine. I find the active fit ones are too thin if he has lots of wees and then he gets leaks.

Oh drat, I picked up some active fit today to try (lo is 7 months and not crawling yet, I just thought they may be less bulky and more comfy) and she's wearing one now in bed - hope it doesn't leak everywhere, it did seem thin compared to the ones I normally use (Tesco's).

Oh gawd, fingers crossed! lol

i use active fit at night and have not had any problems with leakage. Nappy goes on after bath at 7.15 ish and doesn't get changed till next morning about 8ish (unless he's done a poo).

It's mostly about finding the right fit/style/absorbency for your child so I'd suggest getting a packet of each (and also trying the supermarket brands) and see how you go.

We use reusables anyway, but have disposables for when we're places where it's tricky to change her. I've always liked Tesco nappies but Asda have been great too. We tend to have leakage of Pampers overnight so they don't suit DD.

That's reassuring Morph, will see how we go tonight! x

how did it go? I also think it can vary depending on whether you have a boy or a girl. I have a boy.

She was fine, and she was in it longer too as we had a lie in, well over 12 hours, so she obviously didn't feel uncomfortable either

noteaforme My baby is 10 weeks old (12lb ish) and we're using Pampers new baby, just gone up to size 3 as size 2 kept leaking poo up her back where they don't come up high enough.

I was told Pampers New baby were better for absorbing breastfed babies very liquid poo, which is why I'm still using them as opposed to Pampers baby dry.

I don't think I'll move away from them until I start weaning her.

pampers new baby are great but unfortunately size 3 only goes up to 15lb, whereas the size 3 in baby dry and active fit go up to 20lb
