#BritainsDriestNappy trial with Pampers Active Fit – Review

According to Pampers not many mums think about how dry their baby’s nappy is on the inside and why this matters – though I have to say I would think surely that’s the most important thing?!  If the nappy feels dry on the inside you’re going to have a happy baby right?  That’s one of the main reasons I have always been a Pampers mum.  I’ve tried different brands and I’ve dabbled with cloth but in the end I always find myself reaching for the Pampers.  I trust they won’t leak and I know that Amy will be dry and comfortable – what more could I ask?

I haven’t used Pampers Active Fit nappies on Amy before, she has not long since stopped wearing the New Baby ones and moved to Baby Dry so I was keen to see if they were much different from when I had used them on Ben and Chloe.

It was actually really difficult to get a decent picture of Amy in the nappy as she wouldn’t stay still which I guess means they really do live up to their name!  The little lady was certainly happy & comfortable in her Pampers Active Fit nappy!

trial is asking you to test out the superior dryness of Pampers Active Fit for yourself – to prove exactly why the dryness of you baby’s nappy is so important and make you think twice before reaching for a lesser brand.

So – I took the #BritainsDriestNappy challenge . . .

The first step is to pour 150ml of water onto nappy (this is the same as around 2 – 3 wees) and is a surprisingly large amount of liquid.

How much can a pampers nappy absorb?
Once you’ve poured all the water on to the nappy you need to set a timer for 90 seconds (which goes really quickly!)
Once the time is up take a piece of kitchen roll and gently press it onto the nappy (to simulate the weight of your baby)
Check it out – not a single drop of moisture on the kitchen roll, just dents where I’ve pressed down!  I really didn’t believe it would be that good!
I’ve always known Pampers Active Fit were good but I was genuinely surprised shocked by the results of this test.  Even touching the nappy with my bare hands you can hardly feel a thing.  Dave was really impressed too.

    My daughter was left with burns from an active fit nappy it was awful to hear how many parents have had similar issues and not realise the chemicals inside these nappies are actually illegal in Tampons. Whilst it's great they keep wetness from baby surely some wetness helps a child learn preparing for potty training?

      That's not good to hear – I've used Pampers for years and never had any problems at all with them.
      I agree a little wetness is good when it comes to potty training however at the moment Amy is just 10 months old so I'm more worried about her being dry and comfortable 🙂 x

    Great test! We've always used Papers with the Little Man – never tried Baby Dry – but I'd never thought to test them like this. Now that he's almost two he's growing out of them though and I'm gutted!! Love your surprised face at the end, made me chuckle 😉 #TriedTested
