They are super soft, with a specially shaped core to keep new arrival's comfortable and dry as well as stretch anti-leak leg cuffs for around-the-clock comfort.

Would you recommend this to other mums?

Dawn: Yes definitely. I love the design on them. The safari animals are lovely, they are nice and bright and my daughter loves them. The nappies themselves are not too bulky, I find some quite puffy so they take up a lot of room in changing bag. These nappies seem quite ‘slimline’ but it doesn’t affect its job! The nappies don’t have a lingering smell even after 12 hours overnight.

Lucy: I would recommend this product to another mum. They are easy to use and fantastic in the nappy bag as they do not take up too much space. However, I would warn mothers about the possible chance of more nappy changes needed during the day. The main feature I am impressed with is the size guides on the tabs.

Steve: I would recommend this product to friends because it is available at a reasonable price and was of comparable quality to more expensive brands. My son didn't experience any nappy rash so seemed fairly comfortable and there was less leakage than some other brands.

How did this product make your life easier?

Henny: The nappy is colourful with fun characters on. I often let my daughter play with a nappy whilst I’m changing her to prevent her from rolling about. I believe an eye-catching design helps keep her attention. The nappy hasn’t leaked which is perfect and it has performed well overnight. I tested the size 4 and the weight range that this size caters for is good. My daughter is on the smaller end of the scale, however, the nappy still fit well and became my go-to nappy for through the night.

Hollie: The nappy is quick and easy to fasten and stays secure throughout its use. We had no leakages, even overnight.

Laura: This is a great nappy that does what I expect of it. It stays in place and fits well whilst my daughter gets more and more active meaning fewer leaks and more time for me to enjoy playing with her. Knowing it is less prone to leaking than other nappies gives me confidence when out that there won't be any accidents. They are nice and compact when folded making it easy to fit them into my bag.

Would you choose this product to win?

Dawn: Yes I would. I have had a really positive experience with these nappies. I had not tried them before as I don’t shop in Morrison’s but now will make a point to go to one to use these nappies. I find it a big plus that they did not leak. The thickness of them helps them to fit in my travel changing bag which can only hold a few nappies at a time and even just that extra one can make a big difference.

Lucy: No I would not. I have encountered better products on the market. The main feature that stood out on these nappies was the size guide striping on the front of these nappies. However, it is not enough to sway me to a permanent switch to the nutmeg nappies.

Steve: I would not choose this product over options. I find reusable nappies keep my son dry overnight far more easily than any disposable. The nappy was OK for a disposable, but I would prefer the more economically and environmentally friendly option of reusable nappies.

What changes would you make to this product?

Melanie: The sticky tape could be made a little less sticky. Sometimes it needed quite a pull to open it to fasten them. This could help especially with changing little wrigglers who are can be difficult.

Henny: I would include the addition of a wetness indicator on the nappy to make it easier for parents to tell if it needs changing. The sticky tabs that secure the nappy around the front are tricky to release (you have to pull at them quite hard) and it would be helpful if this was made easier. If it was made of a biodegradable material that would be a fantastic improvement for the future too. Although the nappy is nice and eye-catching, the purple colour scheme may put off some parents/kids.

Hollie: The nappies were a little bulky. I would prefer it if they were a little lighter.
