This review is from: Pampers New Baby Size 2 (Mini) Monthly Pack - 240 Nappies (Personal Care)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Before receiving this pack I had never used Pampers before, I had used Huggies (no longer manufactured in the UK) and three different supermarket own brand nappies - which I'd been quite happy with. I had been put off using Pampers because of reviews I'd read which complained that they had an overly chemical smell.
I received 6 packs of 40 size 2 nappies (making the 240) and when I first opened them up I wasn't too impressed - they seemed to be much thinner than the nappies I was using and I wasn't sure that they'd be that good.
However, I've been more than pleasantly surprised. They didn't seem to have a stronger chemical smell than any of the other nappies I've used. Though thinner than other nappies, they seem to absorb both wee and poo very well and probably better than other nappies I've used. The wetness indicator is great, especially at night as it means I haven't had to take the nappy off to see if it's wet - I can just look at the front of the nappy to see if the strip has changed colour. The waistband of the nappies is nice and wide which I think makes them a more comfortable fit and I like the different pictures used on the front of the nappies. I am seriously considering having a small supply of Pampers to use at night.
The but... part of the review comes in on the price. I don't think I can actually afford to switch to Pampers. I think the design and the quality of the product is there and if I had more money I'd almost definitely change brands. But with supermarket own brands being so much cheaper I'd have to be using considerably more own brand nappies in comparison before I could justify a change to Pampers. I would also be cautious about buying 240 nappies when your baby is getting close to going up to the next size as you could easily find yourself with a lot of leftover nappies.
