Pampers Active Fit Nappies #britainsdriestnappy

We recently trialled some Pampers Active Fit nappies as part of Britain's Driest Nappy trial.

What did we think?

What was your overall impression of Pampers Active Fit?
I was surprised how thin they were, they are a lots less bulky than usual ones, Boots Baby. They are a bit over 'decorated' for my liking, they have gender neutral pictures on front and back. Some of tapes were fiddly and unstuck or stuck in wrong place. They smell horrible  when the get wet, it's like an overpowering almond aroma. 

How did Pampers Active Fit perform through the day and at night time?
Little Lady has been potty trained through day for a while now, since Easter, but as we have been through a lot of change recently, house move, separation, etc., we have been using nappies again. I found they held a reasonable amount, but obviously, she is changed more during day. To be honest, I didn't expect much from them at night, surely they were too thin, but they mostly stayed dry. We did have a couple of nights where we had leaks, but only in the morning, just before changing, so not #britainsdriestnappy for us. Once they were wet, they were bulging, pulling down, and looked really uncomfortable.
Would you use them again? If so, why? If not, why not?
They were less bulky so looked better under clothes, but too expensive compared to my usual brand (Boots Baby), I don't feel the benefit in daytime is great enough to justify the extra cost. Definitely wouldn't use for night times, not worth the hassle of extra washing.
If it came up in conversation, would you recommend Pampers Active Fit to other parents for dryness and fit?
After Huggies stopped making nappies to focus on Pull Ups, I tried a few different brands, including the existing Pamper's range, which I wasn't satisfied with, so I was interested to try these and see if they really had improved. They haven't really, better for daytime, still not great at night, so I would recommend others first, but maybe these for daytime.

As for us, we're off to Boots to stock up on own brand nappies.
