Reliable all-round quality
on 19 June 2013
Ordering 140 nappies gives you four plastic packs of 35 nappies each, in a cardboard box. I find this very convenient, as you can store the individual packs much more easily than you can store a large box. The waste doesn't seem too excessive, as disposable nappies go.
Generally Active Fit are very good, high quality nappies. They're very absorbent, and they don't leave red marks. They rarely leak and our daughter seems to find them comfortable. They're very slim, and pack very neatly into a nappy bag. The fastenings are more stretchy than some other nappies, which is a good thing, and they seem to fasten well and can be restuck when necessary, without ripping the nappy itself as sometimes happens with other brands.
Our daughter also likes elephants, so the occasional pointing-at-the-elephant-on-her-nappy moment is quite sweet.
Having talked to other parents, how well the Active Fit works seems to depend on the shape of your baby. It fits ours well, but there is a something of an air vent at the back- not normally a problem, unless she's lying down after a particularly bad nappy, at which point the danger is that the nappy's contents are free to rise up the baby's back somewhat. Because of this, I'd probably say that for us, Pamper's Baby Dry just slightly has the edge over the Active Fit, but your experience may vary.
