#PampersDayOut: Putting new Pampers Baby-Dry Pants to the test

To get the highest seal of approval for the new Baby-Dry Pants, Pampers took a group of Mumsnetters and their DC on the 12 Hours of Happiness Challenge. 

See how Pampers Baby-Dry Pants fared in the video below...

Armed with new Baby-Dry Pants, which provide up to 12 hours of dryness, a group of mums and their little ones were taken on an exciting journey - and tackled the everyday challenges of keeping DC comfortable, dry and happy all day.  

Starting the day with a packed train journey from London Paddington Station, Mumsnetters and Pampers travelled to the Cotswolds, where they enjoyed a fantastic day of uninterrupted fun. The excited DC were quickly off exploring the park; enjoying a ride on the park's train, visiting the free-roaming lemurs and playing in an adventure playground - meaning the pants were definitely put through their paces!


What are your changing challenges?

The mums (thankfully) weren't challenged with nightmare nappy changes during their #PampersDayOut - but for many parents, limited changing facilities can make or break an outing. 

Pampers recently asked 1,000 parents* about the nappy changing challenges they've faced in the past - here's what they said:

  • 25% have been tempted to cancel a trip for fear of a lack of changing facilities
  • 36% admitted to heading for the exit due to a wet nappy incident
  • 71% said that finding somewhere to change their baby was either quite or very stressful
  • Over 50% said that the most challenging situations were outdoor or adventure parks

"We've had lots of nightmare changing situations. Once we took our daughter to the Imperial War Museum and had to change her under the Spitfire - it wasn't easy!" Vicki

"We're usually caught out at places with poor facilities - or a huge queue - so we have to just get down on the bathroom floor and get it done. A baby with a wet or smelly nappy isn't nice for anyone." Lesley-Ann

Introducing new Pampers Baby-Dry Pants

Nowadays, pants aren't just for toilet training - new Pampers Baby-Dry Pants provide the reliable dryness that your child needs, in an easy-to-change format. They feature Micro PearlsTM which absorb up to 30 times their weight, and lock wetness away for up to 12 hours of dryness - no other pant is drier.

They're so easy to pull on and take off that nappy changing is a breeze - even when you're out and about. Whether your DC refuses to stop for a change or they're a wriggler on the changing mat, new Pampers Baby-Dry Pants mean you won't have to compromise on dryness for convenience.


Here's what the mums had to say...

"He likes to explore and that's what he should be doing as a little baby, experiencing new things and exploring the world without interruption." Adele M

"I love to see DD playing uninterruptedly as she's able to enjoy being carefree and happy, which is so important for every baby." Naomi

"It's the best feeling when they're happy and not being disturbed by wetness." Lesley-Anne

"Being able to change him on-the-go - or wherever he is playing - makes me feel much more relaxed and not like a nagging mum!" Jacqueline


Tips for enjoying uninterrupted play from Pampers expert Dr Ellie Cannon

1. As the winter nights draw in and temperatures drop it's not always as easy to enjoy outdoor play - but don't be put off! Just wrap up warm and go enjoy it.

2. When it comes to playtime, there are no rules - sometimes the simplest games and props make for the best fun. Try using old present boxes for some imaginary play - they could be spaceships, or sleighs.

3. Playtime should be fun for both parent and baby - if you're in the kitchen, why not invite your little one to join your saucepan-banging orchestra.

4. Changing time doesn't have to mean an end to playtime. Pampers Baby-Dry Pants provide up to 12 hours of dryness and are so quick and easy to change that your little one can enjoy uninterrupted happiness.
