What is your pet hate as a parent? One of mine has to be the SAGGY NAPPY. There’s nothing worse than noticing your child running around with a big saggy nappy hanging down from under their dress, or pushing down their leggings with its weight. I’m not sure why it gets to me so much but I know I’m not alone!
Luckily, Pampers feel the same and have come up with a very clever new range of nappies that fight the sag, their new Pampers Active Fit nappies. We’ve been lucky enough to be sent a pack to try and share our thoughts with all you lovely people.
Let’s cover the technical bit first, the science, if you will, behind the Pampers Active Fit nappies.
We got to do a fun little demo, which made me feel a little bit like I was on Blue Peter, to show how the Pampers Active Fit nappies work.
We did a little video to go along with this post, where you can see the demo live in action:
One of the things we noticed first, and couldn’t get over, is how thin and light the Pampers Active Fit nappies are. They are definitely the thinnest, and lightest, nappies I’ve ever come across. This must, naturally, mean that they are more comfortable for your baby because they have less ‘bulkiness’ around their bot bot (as Little I likes to call it) area.
We were also impressed by the micropods. They are incredibly clever and lock away wetness very effectively so your baby feels drier for longer. They absorb the wetness through channels that then distribute the wetness evenly throughout the nappy, meaning the nappy doesn’t collect all the wetness in one area and begin to sag.
Little I looked very comfortable in her Pampers Active Fit nappy. The three way fit meant that the nappy stretches at the waist, legs and bottom so she was free to strut her stuff and dance and jump around, to her hearts content.
We were using the Aldi Mamia nappies previously and although we got on with them fine, there is a marked difference between them and the Pampers Active Fit nappies. You can tell the difference in quality quite easily. We have never had a leak with the Aldi Mamia nappies but they do tend to sag around the bum area. Little I is hyper aware of ‘wee wees’ and ‘poo poos’, as we are almost ready to start potty training, so I’m sure the Pampers Premium Protection™ Active Fit nappies will help her feel more comfortable.
Overall we are very impressed and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend the Pampers Active Fit nappies to other parents and friends. Pampers already has a great reputation behind its name but with all the supermarket brands stepping up their game, it’s still good to get a real life recommendation from another mum. They definitely get our seal of approval. And, of course, any nappy that means more room for dancing, shaking, running and jumping is a winner in our eyes.
Pampers Premium Protection Active Fit nappies are available in sizes 3, 3+, 4, 4+, 5, 5+ and 6. They have an RPP of £14 for a 62 pack and are available at all leading retailers.
