When do I change to nappy pants?

You think you’re a dab hand at changing nappies, then suddenly your tot decides they won’t take change times lying down…

Whereas before you could charm them with a silly face or song,  you now find yourself needing “octopus” arms as you wrestle jingling a toy (for distraction) with trying to keep your rocking, rolling and wriggling babe still for long enough to change their nappy!

Sound familiar? Then it could be time for a change – to nappy pants!

What are nappy pants?

Unlike regular nappies that you secure with tapes at the side, nappy pants have an all-round waistband so you can pull them up and down like underwear, with the added advantage of tear off sides for quick and simple changes.

You can even do stand-up nappy changes – perfect for when your little wriggler is on the move.

When’s the right time to make the change?

This really does depend on you and your baby. Some little tearaways get active at as young as 6 months, while for others it could be 12 months. When nappy times become a struggle, it’s probably the right time to try out nappy pants.

Nappy pants give your tot the freedom to wriggle, roll, crawl and walk freely. They can also help your child get used to underwear and are handy for potty training older toddlers.

Are they as absorbent as regular nappies?
