The third obvious difference is the size. The Asda and Pampers nappies are roughly the same size, the MoliCare is both longer and wider, meaning that it will comfortably fit a larger child.
Due to my location Pampers Micro Nappies are not available everywhere. I bought managed to buy mine in Boots or £3.33 for a pack of 24 (they only come in a pack of 24) but my mother bought some in Mothercare for £4.49 (24). It is definitely worth shopping around for, I know online Amazon sell them and so do Ebay.
When my daughter was born she only weighed 5oz 11lbs so was on the tiny side. Because she went straight in to SCBU (special care unit) for just under 2 days they immediately put her into Pampers Micro nappies as she was so little. As I had packed size 1 new baby nappies thinking that is all I would need I ordered my other half to go to Boots to buy quite a few packs as I knew she would need them in hospital and then at home for when we were discharged. Cambridge Addenbrookes had changed their policy on providing all nappies, cotton wool etc earlier on in the year so we gave a full pack back as even though we had only used a few nappies, we thought it was a nice thing to do.
We've tried a number of different types of nappy for our little baby son who is now 13 weeks old. We began with the Pampers newborn nappies which were great but did tend to leak a little too often for our liking. I was fortunate enough to receive a pack of 72 pampers baby dry nappies from a survey website to trial and I was excited to try them out. On opening the packet I was impressed with the patterning on the nappies. They have little green polka dots all over them and the pattern makes them look like frilly little pants which is very cute. On the front across the elasticated band there is a cute picture of a baby farmyard animal and the number denoting the size of the nappy. On the back across the elasticated band is a little lamb gambolling about which looks very sweet! The nappy has green coloured adhesive tabs and the inside of the nappy is green in colour also. They are very attractive nappies and are perfect for little boys. As I don't have a girl, I don't know how well I would feel the colour would suit a girl, but at the end of the day, a nappy is a nappy and serves the same purpose for a baby no matter what gender!
The only trouble with the nappy having pictures on the front and back is that they can easily be put on the wrong way round if you're not concentrating properly!
Inside the nappy is the absorbent core and elasticated parts which go round the tops of the legs, helping to contain whatever the baby decides to fill the nappy with!!! I find these nappies very absorbent and are great overnight; we have had no leaks with them so far, providing they are put on properly! The adhesive tabs have a sticky part and a part which 'velcros' onto the nappy itself, allowing you to reposition and restick if necessary.
These nappies are great at keeping the moisture away from baby's skin. So far, my son has not experienced any soreness or nappy rash and I do feel that the quality of Pampers' nappies helps with this.
The nappies are available in packs of varying sizes. The most recent pack I bought was a pack of 80 size 3 nappies and they were on offer in Morrisons - £9 for the pack instead of £11.99. It's always worth looking out for special offers and baby events when buying nappies an then buying in bulk as there are good savings to be made! I will stick with Pampers Baby Dry for the forseeable future, simply due to their absorbency and the cute design, I love them!!
