Review: Mummy Confessions (See Mumma Morrison's review here)
For each of the nappies in this review, both Amanda and Fi trialled them with their sons (for their profiles and an idea of how the nappies sat with each child, read Amanda’s Profile HERE)
How does it fit?
The fit was good and everything seemed to fit ok. It was very thin and moved with baby well. It seemed to contour to his legs and waist quite well.
How long does it last?
It lasted fairly well through the day as I would normally change nappies. So, usually every 4 or so hours. It lasted through my baby’s night as well. So, he wore it from 8-8 and no issues with leaks. It did seem pretty full, but no wetness.
Is it good during the day time and overnight?
It performed very well in the day time, and decently at night time. It held a fair bit. I only had one wet leak with it. I did have one near leg leak with a soiled nappy.
What is the value like? Is it worth the cost?
It is the most expensive of the Pampers, but tends around the mid-to-high range for cost overall. If you are looking for a good performing but also thin nappy, this is it.
Is it easy to put on and take off?
Very easy to take off and put on. The tabs held well and weren’t too hard to manage for use.
Are they easy to dispose of?
Easy to dispose, and the tabs held well for closing the nappy and containing mess.
Summary of the Pampers Active Fit Nappies
Overall, I wasn’t expecting too much from this nappy, because the back didn’t seem reinforced enough, especially in the back. I was shocked that it held so much! It is surprisingly thin, which is why I was so taken back by how well this nappy did. The characters on it are cute, and the fit is good all around. It probably fit the best of the three Pampers nappies as well, making it much less likely to leak. If you are after a thin nappy that does the job, this is a nappy to check out. They have samples available for purchase on their website.
