Your little one can now have some fun in the water with Pampers' swim-inspired Splashers Swim Nappies. The highlights of these nappies include their 360 degrees stretchy waistband, a guaranteed quick and easy removal with their easy-tear sides and a comfortable fit whether they're wet or dry. 

How did this product make your life easier?

Hannah: As much as I love swimming with my baby, getting them prepared and changed can often be challenging and time-consuming and therefore anything that makes this easier is very welcome. These swim nappies are very easy to use as they have an elasticated waist and pull up design making it very easy to fit my very active and crawling 8-month-old boy. They have a very cute design with an animated back pocket making it easy to tell the difference between the front and the back. They could also be removed quickly by tearing them off if needed. I had no spillages at all when using these which was hugely appreciated!

Tina: The swim nappies make using a public pool very convenient. They can be easily worn underneath a swimsuit or trunks. They are very thin and not bulky. The fact that they are pants makes putting them on a wiggly baby very easy. The design is cute but would not influence my purchase decision. They seem to be comfortable for the baby to wear.

Curstain: The fit is great and unlike the Velcro type joining the nappy together like other brands, this fits more like a regular pull up nappy. It means they are very easy to get on and off. The fit is also great around the leg area where other swim nappies have a tendency to leak in this area I found that the elastic on this nappy around the leg meant it contained any mess much better than other brands.

Would you recommend this to other mums?

Emily: I would, and have, recommended pampers swim nappies to friends. I like the sea design, and the feel of the nappy is very soft and feels like it would be gentle on my daughter's skin. There is a large amount of absorbent padding that gives me confidence in the function of the nappy. My daughter has never had a poo whilst wearing one so I can't specifically say how well it works when needed, but at least I have confidence in it.

Kasia: Yes, they seem good quality and value for money when compared to other swim pants. Obviously they are hygienic to use in a pool, seem to be a comfortable and affordable price. The design is very cool, with the sun with sunglasses and colourful stripes, it makes you think of the beach and sun even if using them in winter.

Naazneen: I have recommended this product to other mums. Most of the mums I see in the swimming pool use splashers. The main reasons why I recommend it are because they are comfortable, they have a good design, they're a good fit. All of this translates to the most important reason - confidence! The worst thing is feeling defeated by a poo leak in the pool and being the reason everyone has to vacate the pool. 

Would you choose this product to win?

Shuang: Yes I would. I find the quality of the product is much better than some other swimming nappies in the market. It is made from a material that is very soft and comfy, and it didn't cause any irritation to my baby. It fits very well and serves the purpose brilliantly. As a swimming nappy, I think it's one of the best in the market.

Sejal: This is an excellent product. They're extremely easy to use, they're comfortable and my baby seems happy in them. We have never had a leak and it is therefore very hygienic. They seem a popular choice amongst our swimming class participants. I would absolutely choose this product because I would not feel happy to risk trying others.

Emily: Yes, I would choose this product over the other swim nappy I'm currently using, because I've not had problems of the sides unsticking with the Pampers splasher nappy which I'd had with the other nappy. The design is also more interesting to look at. The quality feels better, and I don't mind the prices, as we only use one swim nappy a week.

What changes would you make to this product?

Hannah: This was a good all-round swim nappy but as with all disposable nappies, I have a concern over the long term global impact of using them on a regular basis. Would it be possible to introduce something more biodegradable that would degrade over a much shorter period of time but still maintain the excellent properties of this nappy?

Tina: It’s not very clear which way is the front and back so we had to try a few times. I would make this more obvious. When taking the nappy off, there is no obvious way to roll it up so we had to use a nappy bag instead. We use biodegradable nappy bags but otherwise, this would have been even more added plastic.

Naazneen: As I have already alluded to, the only downfall of this product is the fact that it is single-use. I feel if a part of it was reusable or recyclable it would make it far more appealing to a wider audience. The impact of disposable nappies on the environment can’t be denied anymore and we need to start being more responsible. Unfortunately, we all still value convenience - myself included.
