Which? has recently tested five new disposable nappy brands, including Pampers, Boots and Kit & Kin.
But how good are these nappies at absorbing liquid, locking in wetness and preventing leaks?
Two of them scored highly enough to earn Best Buy status, while one of them rated so poorly that we've assigned it a Don't Buy.
|Brand||Price per Pack||Nappies per Pack||Price per Nappy||Weight Range (lb)|
|Boots Baby Super-Dry||£3.50||30||£0.12||7-18|
|Kit & Kin Eco||£6.40||34||£0.19||9-14|
|Morrisons Nutmeg Ultra Dry||£2.69||48||£0.06||7-18|
|Naty by Nature Eco||£7.00||26||£0.27||7-18|
Boots promise day and night dryness for active babies, but not all own-brand disposable nappies are created equal. Some are good value for money while others are great at keeping your baby dry and comfortable. The 'holy grail' for a parent is finding one that does all these things to a reasonable level and at a price that won't break the bank.
These eco nappies are made with plant-based materials and wood pulp. While the use of eco-friendly materials is commendable, how will they perform versus other nappies when we check absorption, leakage and breathability?
Morrisons Nutmeg Baby Ultra Dry carries four more nappies and are more than half the price of Pampers, helping to drop the cost per nappy down to just 6p.
Naty by Nature's eco nappies had the lowest pack size of the bunch and the highest cost. The nappies are made with sustainable plant-based materials and feature no oil-based plastics on your baby's skin.
Pampers disposable nappies are tried and tested favourites with parents and the Baby Dry range is designed to offer your baby protection from leaks and discomfort with a flexible fit, adjustable waistband and strong leg cuff.
