How did this product make your life easier?  

Amy: The Nutmeg Ultra Dry nappies are very good quality for the price and very absorbent. The tabs are adjustable, which is a very useful feature when you have a wriggling baby, but also very secure. These nappies also performed well at night and left my baby feeling dry to the touch. Protection “for up to 12HRS” is advertised on the packaging, the longest I kept my baby in one was around nine hours over night. These nappies are dermatologically tested but I did notice my baby had nappy rash a couple of times, however, this didn’t last long and overall she seemed quite comfortable in them.

Danielle: After being sent the Nutmeg ultra dry nappies, I was keen to try them out specifically overnight as that is where I had experienced leaks from other brands. These nappies lasted well during the night. I changed my daughters nappy around 10pm and we had no leaks during the time she was asleep until 7 a.m. Fine for during the day when out and about. 

Kimberly: I had been using Aldi Mamia nappies and was shocked (in a really good way) when we tested these. They were a good size and super fit. They provided brilliant protection and absorbency whilst being nice and slim and not too bulky which can make my toddler's clothes look bulky. They were worn overnight with no issues and my little boys sensitive skin was well protected, not causing any reaction or rash. They also came up bigger in size/longer in the body, which was great as my little boy is tall and they came higher up his back and stomach.

Would you recommend this to other parents?  

Amy: I would recommend the Nutmeg Ultra Dry disposable nappies, the overall quality is great and they are good value for money. The cartoon tiger on the front is a cute and gender-neutral design. The nappies were easy to put on and I really appreciated that the tabs could be re-adjusted. They certainly are absorbent, thanks to the advertised “fast-absorbing core”, but are not bulky like some absorbent disposables and I didn’t experience any leaks at all.

Danielle: I would definitely recommend these nappies to a friend, especially if she was looking for a great nappy for use during the night. They kept my little one dry and that is the main feature of why I would choose ultra-dry again. She did not experience any discomfort while wearing them, giving extra comfort around the waist band and they were of a pretty design. They were easy to put on my little one and then fold away when used.

Kimberly: The design was simple and sleeker than other nappies I have tried. So much so, I have swapped my usual brand after testing these. I would absolutely recommend them as they came up a bigger fit than some others we had used, coming further up my little boys tummy, great for non-leakage at the back. They were snug and looked good under his clothes whilst performing really well, with a fantastic absorbency and were very easy to use.

Would you choose this product above all others on the market?  

Amy: I do prefer washable nappies overall as they are better for the environment but I do use disposable nappies when travelling or staying away from home. I would use the Nutmeg Ultra Dry nappies again as they certainly were very absorbent and were easy to put on my baby. Having used a more expensive brand as well, in comparison I found that the Nutmeg nappies actually fitted better and were much better value for money.

Danielle: I think this nappy makes an excellent choice for an ultra dry nappy. It provided my child with a great night of sleep because she wasn’t damp and we didn’t experience any leaks when we used them. Easy to pop in the change bag with a nice design for any child. I think this product should win above all others on the market because of the great benefits: dry night, comfort waistband, comfortable leg cuffs to stop leaks. A great product.

Kimberly: I think the size and price point of these nappies are its selling point. They aren’t as short-bodied as some other nappies on the market we have tried. They are also really reasonably priced compared to some of the bigger brands and performed as well, if not better.

What changes would you make to this product?

Amy: I was happy overall with these nappies, they performed well and the design on the front is cute. If I could change one thing, however, I would’ve preferred them to have a wee indicator strip. The nappies were so absorbent it wasn’t always easy to tell if my baby needed changing and I have found this to be a useful feature on other disposable nappies.

Danielle: I wouldn’t change anything about this product. It does what it says on the packaging which is ultimately why I would purchase this product. It has a nice, simple design, up to 12 hours dryness which is what will aid a good night’s sleep for parents and their young ones and an adjustable waistband that gives comfort during the day and night. I think this product is a genuinely great one and I have since purchased more.

Kimberly: I would perhaps change the printed design to something more modern, perhaps a tribal theme or monochrome or different to animals to make them stand out from others.
