Best nappy - wish they were stocked at Coles/Woolies!I find these nappies amazing!
Firstly, they are super absorbent - my 10 month old wears them for 12 hours overnight and we've never had a leakage. Been using them since he was 2 months old.
Secondly, they are super soft on my sons sensitive skin. The only other nappy that lasts overnight is huggies but they give my son super red markings around his legs - no issues with the pampers as they are super soft. Thirdly, they are so light and thin - easy to pack in day bag and not at all bulky on my boy.
I was skeptical at first when i was given a... Read morepack as a gift; i didn't use them until one night when I couldn't get to the store to pick up the usual huggies. Gave one a go and haven't looked back! Super absorbant, super soft for sensitive skin, thin and lightweight, seasame street characters and smells nice too! Hard to source - usually have to wait for Groupon or Mumgo to have a sale - Otherwise very expensive to order through the Pampers websit.
Worst nappy ever!With two bugs I have gone through a fair few nappies on the quest for "effective but cheap", so when I saw a deal for these nappies at an unbelievably cheap price, I snapped them up. Unbelievably cheap is right. They gave my 7 month old girl horrible nappy rash including a weeping red sore, are so thin that they leaked & lasted a ridiculously shortened amount of time before needing to be replaced. Poor form Pampers, no wonder they were practically giving them away.
Everything at you would expect in a quality nappy
Worst nappy ever!First time I buy them and I'm shocked!! First time in 11 months that my baby gets a nappy rash. Besides they leak, they get very heavy when wet. I have to change my baby every 3 hours. I had always bought Huggies but they're very expensive, now I regret because I bought 3 bulks.
No leakage!!!While on holiday in the UK I started to use Pampers instead of Huggies and I was amazed at the quality of these nappies. My son is an extremely heavy wetter who sleeps 12-14 hours at night so I needed a nappy that I could be sure wouldn't leak. I was so excited when I returned to find I could buy these nappies at Coles but that is no longer the case so instead I bulk buy them from Dealsdirect.com and I get them for around 22c a nappy (Size 5).
No leakage, Extremely slim fit, high back
Not easily available in Australian stores
Favourite nappy by farI have been using Huggies since my now 6 month old son was a newborn & automatically decided they were the best type of nappy on the shelves because of the marketing/packaging & sterotyping amoungst Australian consumers/Mothers & health care professionals.
After finding chafe on bubbies inner thighs from the rough outer, red marks on his legs because of tight leg elastic & him having a red rash on his upper thigh from the constant rubbing of the sticky tabs on Huggies I was on a mission & began trialing almost EVERY nappy avaliable to see … Read more · 1if i could find something that was a better fit while being super absorbent... but had no luck. (My son would even break out in a rash from the cheaper brands sometimes) I decided to give Pampers a try.. If these were awful i had decided i would stay loyal to Huggies & stop my search for 'the perfect nappy'. After using them on my son for the first time i was very skeptical, they smell nice (kind of like baby powder), have nice stretchy side panels & feel super soft on the inside and outside, but because they are so thin didn't trust them - I didn't think they would hold up well over night. (12 hours) I decided to do a water test before putting one on my boy over night (Save myself changing & washing the sheets/clothes etc if they were bad) & this was my finding... I weighed each nappy before i began the test - Huggies toddler size & Pampers cruisers maxi dry size 4. Pampers: 25grams Huggies: 42grams I then poured one cup - 250mls of water in each nappy & let it sit for 3minutes. I then held the back of my hand on the nappy along with a bit of paper & gave it a bit of a rub for about 10seconds & waved it in the air to see how wet it was & weighed the nappies again also. Huggies: 286g after 250ml water. Finding: The back of my hand was very damp/moist & the nappy was damp to the touch.. the paper was splotched with damp patches. It was also quite damp on the out side of the nappy. Pampers: 252g after 250ml water. Finding: The back of my hand was almost 100% dry, a tiny bit of moisture, but you wouldn't know at all unless you were focusing really hard & being picky, the piece of paper was dry also. The nappy was dry to the touch, although the outer cover of the nappy was damp. This was such a fun little experiment & i'm really glad i compared nappies! Huggies retail for: $33 for a box of 81 Toddler size - widely avaliable Pampers retail for: $30 for a box of 100 Toddler (I find them to be between Toddler/walker Huggies.. size (Size 4) and can only be found at Coles. I hope this helps other Mums break the 'nappy sterotype' while saving some money & keeping baby comfie! Things i love about Pampers! - The amazingly soft outer cover!! = No more inner thigh rashes for Kees! - The SUPER thin aspect of the nappy, It must be so much more comfy then a thick padded nappy - The really flexable/stretchy side panels, it allows Kees to roll about & play freely while avoiding rough tabs irritating his leg & leaving a rash - The fact that it is crazily absorbent & still leaves baby 100% dry! - The fun sesame street designs, great for both boys & girls. The one thing i was a bit skeptical about was the fact it didn't have back elastic like Huggies, but i think its worth the switch! :) Everything!! The price, absorbency, stretchy side panels, designs, double leg elastic, smell, softness, how thin it is.. Its an amazing nappy for such a great price! Nothing at all! I couldn't fault them even if i tried!
Pampers CruisersIt's too bad that Coles no longer carry Pampers Cruisers, apart from Huggies, they are my favourite nappy brand. Unlike Huggies, Pampers are super thin which is great for hot summer days. And they are very affordable as well, equating to about 30 cents per nappy for Size 4. Although thin, they last through the night unless the kid drinks a lot of water prior to sleeping.
Thin, super-absorbent, affordable.
This is our night time nappyWe use these at night time, they are a great fit even with no stretchy elastic waistband.
So thin but super absorbent
The reason we don't use these during the day is because when they get wet the nappy sags down alot as it carries soo much ! Huggies carry just as much but doesn't sag - maybe due to its elastic waistband
Reasonable price, thin, super absorbent, cute design
No elastic waistband therefore it sags
Worst nappies ever!!!I bought these from coles when they were on special thinking because there normally more expensive than huggies than bound to be fantastic!
Wrong!!I have to change my daughter every hour and a half and even within 25 minutes of the new nappy her wee and poo leaked right through her pants.
Everything! expensive! waste of money! have to change every hour or so! dont bother buying them if you want absorbancy...you'll be changing the sheets every night.
Cheap, absorbent AND thin-look!My first choice for day nappies! The most noticeable thing is how thin Cruisers are when they're dry; they look better under fitted clothes and take up less room in the nappy bag. Their thinness doesn't affect their absorbency though and they contain a full load well. When wet, they don't go lumpy, just squishy. They don't have a stretchy waist band but they're still a good fit. I find they do fit well around the legs and are easy to re- adjust should you need to. They're not THE most absorbent for overnight use, but their low cost and appearance are a more than adequate trade-off.
Low-cost and thin looking with good absorbency
Not available in a size for <7kgs
TerribleI will never use this brand again. They leak no matter how often I changed them.It was a complete waste of money,time and effort as I spent quite a lot of my week washing bed linen and clothes. I was scared of leaving the house with these nappies on my daughter as I could not depend on them to hold any liquid.
There was nothing that I liked about them apart from the cute designs.
They were paperthin,leaked within a very small amount of time and as a result I used three times the number of nappies that I would normally use. Also they left me with a huge amount of washing since everytime they leaked I had beds and clothes that needed to be replaced.
TerribleThe worst nappy I have ever used.
Tried them today for the first time. I'm going back to huggies and sorbies, no matter how good a sale coles is having on cruisers.I've got to wash some very damp clothes!
The fit is good.
They leak very badly after no time on at all.
TerribleI thought they where the worst nappy i have ever purchased. They where on special so i thought that would be wonderful to purchase them since i'd heard so many good things about them but when i got them home i was very dissapointed. The nappy was only half there. The back half of the nappy didn't have any lining at all in it, so when my son did a large amount of wees they would leak. I couldnt allow him to wear them at night because he simply wouldn't sleep with such a wet bed.
Coles returned them no worries. They where on special.
only half the nappy was there, no back lining, means wouldn't hold much, poos went up into no lined part, absorbant lining started to come off after a few hours.
My favourite disposable nappyI started using them because they were cheaper than the leading brand, but since then, I am so happy with them, its all we have used since. I have recommended them to others as they are great value, much trimmer fitting than others, very absorbent & well fitting. My bub wears one overnight for 12 hours straight & they hold up well.
price, fit, comfort and absorbency.
has a bit of a chemical smell which can be a little off putting. I always open the new pack and stack the nappies in bub's stacker, so the smell dissipates
Pleasantly surprisedI saw these come up on a scoopon or one of those voucher sites and was going to try and didn't. I have been using cloth nappies (gorgeous absorbent ones much diff to the old cotton squares, but still don't last like biggie and disposables, but that's been fine). I hate the waste of disposables, and was looking for some to use when I saw these on special at Coles
I saw it said they were 20% thinner, but man they must have been thin before! I had some Huggies at home and planned on using them overnight, had put one of these on after a bath, ... Read moreand when hubby decided to put hubs to bed I didn't get to change him. To my surprise it lasted with no leaks. I am always amazed at how minimal it seems even when it's time for a change. I don't know if I would buy if not on special but I plan on buying another box if Coles still have them on special. My son is 18months and starting to tt so hopefully I won't need too many more anyway, but atleast if I'm not usin my cloth, I'm addin much less to waste. I can easily add a cover if needed. I do love the super thin nappy for under clothes and would recommend you try. I am really not sure how some say they leak every hr or two? Oh and one last thing, I always feel when I take it off, and he truly does feel dry. I used Huggies on my other two, and have never thought any compare. These are different but definitely comparable. Cheers! Min waste if you have to use a disposable. Super thin and baby feels dry Only at Coles and exp if paying full price.
Will buy againI bought these to try, as I thought $30 for 100 nappies wasn't too bad. I had been impressed with Huggies but think the Pampers Cruisers are a fierce competitor! Although they are thin, the absorbancy it great (deceiving). They don't take up much room in the nappy bag and even better in the rubbish bin after use. Ultimately they are a better choice than other disposables as far as reducing land fill goes.
Thin, reducing waste. Good absorbancy. Light, soft and comfy for bub.
Can only find at Coles. The fragrant scent is quite strong.
