This review is specifically for the newborn sizes (swaddlers, I think?)
I am normally a huggies person, but I think these ones outdo huggies 10 times over in the newborn stakes.
They are so soft, and gentle feeling, they are heaps more "trim", and the legs are perfectly shaped for their little legs. I find huggies pushes their legs apart so far!
They are perfectly absorbent, no poosplosions.
I find they aren't as good at "odour control" but that's more an issue with toddlers.
Even though they are quite expensive, I would never use any other sposie on my newborns :)
These are THE best nappies.
Much better than Huggies and absorbing moisture, lightweight and have a great design.
The stretchy band around the stomach allows the baby to move around without becoming uncomfortable or the nappy too tight when sitting.
I, along with my sisters, we raised on these, and now I see why!
I had a premmie baby so finding nappies small enough was a challenge.
Pampers Swaddlers come in 2 sizes, N and 1. N was the perfect size for my 2kg premmie and he lasted in them up until 4kg. He was then in the 1 and these will take him up until he's about 6kg.
They aren't bulky so fit well under clothes, the sticky tabs are good for "fixes" as they are multiple sticks and have cute baby sesame street characters on them as well. They kept bubs well dry and even explosions didn't escape the sides.
Highly recommend these, especially for premmie babies. The only downside I found was that they weren't available in all stores, but I shop at coles 99% of the time so it didn't bother me too much.
We tried these among many brands when we first brought our son home.
Overall they didn't work for us.
Positives - soft feel, nice fragrance (like marshmallows), cute designs
Negatives - not sure if we just had a faulty pack but the nappy was often stick to itself and so in opening up for use you would have to tear it, also had many leakages with these.
We got these on a website for an amazing price.
Fantastic for during the day we have no issues they are less bulky and look great under clothes. Cute designs also.
Only con is that they tend to leak during the evening so we use a different brand for nightime use.
Love these nappies. First used them when they were on sale at Cheap and Chips and continue to buy them from Coles when on sale.
Stretchy tabs, not too thick so DD doesn't have a huge bum in them. Have never had a leak or explosion.
They even last all night on the rare occasion she sleeps through.
They do feel "plasticky" when you first use them, but the part touching bub is really soft and has never cause a rash here.
Worth a try, for sure!
I started using Pampers disposable nappies when they became available in my local Coles, when DD was about 14 months old. I'd read a lot of reviews before then, and when they were finally available to buy I jumped at the chance to try some. Since then i have never looked back! They are so much slimmer and more absorbent than any other disposables I've tried, and when they are full they don't go all hard and bulky in between the legs. My DD's clothes used to be damp in the morning after wearing other disposables at night, but not with Pampers! I've since started using them from birth with my DS, and the newborn Swaddlers are also fantastic. it's great that u can buy 1 size up from newborn too, so u don't have that huge jump to the next size when they grow out of the newborn size. I have never paid full price for Pampers, and I like that they have the convenience sizes on special for a great price too, instead of just the boxes. I can fit loads more of them in my nappy bag too, because they are so thin.
Probably the only con is that they don't sell the nappy-pants or training pants in-store. However they can be purchased online from a couple of different sites. They are also great!
Pampers seem to be just as good as Huggies but I still use Huggies more because Pampers aren't as widely available and do not have the good specials.
The best thing about Pampers is the slim fit. It is hard to believe they can be so absorbant when they are so thin.
Pampers (cruisers) are great - they dont leak and are lighter than huggies which ive found reduces the chances of nappy rash. They are currently on sale at big W 100 nappies for $30 which is a great price. Ive tried huggies and baby love as well but theyre just not as good as the pampers cruisers!
After three kids and a very wide variety of nappies. I use cloth at home during the day and disposables at night and when away from home. I have never had the erge to try another brand since Pampers came into our lives.
They are very slim and hold better than huggies in my opinion. They have great characters on them, not over the top and suited to both genders. They do have a scent but I don't mind it you can only smell it when you first put them on.
I think they have the best fit with an extra long tab on the front side. My boy is in size 3 and he is two, (10 kg). Great value!!! Never had a leak or even a near leak.
I have used these nappies after Babylove kept leaking at night. have also used Huggies, Snugglers and Woolworths Select.
I would say these nappies are the european huggies. They fit the same, absorb the same, possibly better. Definately cheaper!
Will definately be using these exclusively once my current huggies stock runs out.
Only nusiance is they are currently only sold by coles so they have a price monopoly. hoping more shops will stock them soon so there is a bit of competition.
