Toddler’s love to explore. Fact. And there’s no better mini explorer than my own inquisitive boy.
I’m not complaining as it’s actually amazing to see some of the things he gets up to on a day-to-day basis, if there’s one thing he’s taught me it’s that if I’m going to keep him out of harms way I need to be one step ahead of him every time. Everything they ever warn you about, when it comes to the potential dangers while raising children has been proven true by my climbing, jumping, danger loving escape artist.
And as much as it would be easier to find ways to slow him down or inhibit his adventurous drive, as a parent I should be encouraging development. Like when he’s using those gross motor skills to navigating the route from the floor to the table or encouraging him to push plastic shapes through a shape sorter (and not the plug sockets!)
If done safely and under my watchful eye, then I see no problem in a little risk taking.
So a huge saggy nappy is not something he needs when trying out all the above. It’s these exact avoidable situations which will hamper an active session as it hangs down annoyingly, dangling down to his knees if not changed after every little wee. I tried out a new Pampers Active fit on him to see if it helped one afternoon but before I tested out just how effective they were for my little Indianna Jones, I carried out a little investigation into how they worked.
Seeing how quickly the moisture absorbing pods soaked up a 150 ml of water (about the equivalent of a couple of wees) and as you can see from the demo video I shot it was almost instant. cotton wool top layer acts like a buffer between the pods and left only a very slight damp feeling which decreased with over time. I compared it to my usual one which was a lot wetter to touch and almost twice the size!
So fuelled on cheese, apple, raisins and bread, a half a sippy cup of water, a long morning nap and a good dose of fresh air, it was time to see where my boy and his Pampers Active Fit took him, was he going to sag or swag?
