SNUGGLERS NAPPIES PHOTO AND REVIEW
Snugglers Nappies have some cute prints on them, however on first glance at the packaging I thought there would be a variety of different prints inside the pack, as per the pictures on the packaging, but each pack only has one design in it. In my case mine had the 'Cheeky Monkey' print on them, cute but I was a bit disappointed about this as my baby is a girl and this print is predominantly blue - I would have loved to have put the bright polka dot print one's on her, or the cute ladybug print as featured on the packaging because that's what prompted me to buy them. If I dress her in a short dress and she has a brightly coloured nappy underneath I don't neccessarily feel the need to put a nappy cover on over them too. The problem with these is you can't tell what print design is going to be inside the package you buy, until you've bought it and opened it. It would be much better if they had some of each design inside the one packet, like Huggies Nappy-Pants do.
These nappies are a little bit on the stiffer side when compared to some other nappy brands, though they do appear to be softer than Huggies Ultra Dry Nappies they are otherwise quite similar to them (except they don't have the band of stretch fabric at the back).
The main problems I have with these Snugglers Nappies is, firstly, there is next to no stretch in them at all around the waist area at front or back. Picture yourself wearing underwear that is like this - they're just not going to sit right. When you put them on your baby when baby is laying down it can look like you've got a good fit, but when baby sits up they can dig in at the tummy, and there is no stretch in them to allow for when baby moves - I've got a baby who loves moving around! I want her to feel comfortable while doing so. Only the side tabs have a minute amount of stretch in them; not enough to do anything (Like allow for extra movement).
Secondly, the side tabs (hard velcro-like peice like on Huggies Ultra Dry Nappies) caused red marks at the top of my baby's legs from digging into, or rubbing against them, when she was sitting up. This was even though I fussed around trying to get the tabs in the perfect spot when I was putting the nappy her. It could be due to the lack of stretch near the tabs. Or because it's hard to find the ideal tab position so they don't dig in or scratch baby's skin due to the shape of them. Huggies Ultra Dry Nappies have very similar tabs and they also do the same thing, even with a stretchy back. That's why I'm not a fan of these nappies, or this style of side tab.
