One Active Toddler Thanks To Pampers Active Fit

One Active Toddler Thanks To Pampers Active Fit

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.

Living Arrows at 18 months, capturing a photo of your child every week.

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?

Watch the video and you’ll see,


I’m working with BritMums and Pampers testing Active Fit nappies with new no-sag technology. I have been compensated for my time. All editorial and opinions are my own. Visit today for more information. 

Just a normal day for a lively toddler and how choosing the right nappies is essential

    Toddlers can be so fast! It’s amazing, no wonder we’re always tired as parents! You’re right of course, nappies tend to get in their way and it’s good to find a product that helps keep them nice and active. We’ve been out of the toddler stage for quite some time now though so remembering what my daughter was like is a bit of a blur. She was fast though! Ran before she knew how to sit still!

      the speed at which this one goes is actually quite impressive! (although not great when he’s pegging it out of the front door with me screaming after him.

    Love the vlog – especially the hoover riding – we will have to try that one! But I can’t see your demo as it says it’s private! We had great fun testing our nappies out too! #SagGoneGrooveOn

      thank you so much for letting me know! I’ve just switched it to public. theres no hoover riding n this one but its interesting to see how the Pampers nappies work

    We have always been pampers fans in our house, for both my girls we never had a nappy leak overnight. My youngest is 17 months and runs and runs, these look like they are even better than the active fit ones we use. x

      He’s certainly not having any trouble being held back in these pampers!

    You should work in PR!
    I’ve never seen such an amusing nappy review video. The music is ace!

    • 22nd February 2016 / 7:38 pm

      Bless you, that’s so sweet to say. This really does sum up an average day for us!

    Swag of course! We have used Pampers and Huggies before but I think we prefer Pampers. I think the fit is more comfortable and not a prone to sagging.

      With your style Ana only as swag and a swish would do!

    We were always a cotton nappy family, unless we were out on an extended trip in which case pampers always came to the rescue. 🙂

    • 23rd February 2016 / 10:49 am

      we do a bit of mix and match with cloth and disposable too. like you, Pampers are our day out / holiday choice and we use them at night now too.

    Sounds like you have a very bright toddler. Your description reminded me of my youngest son now 10 and still full-on activity wise. Commenting for myself and on behalf of BritMums and thanking you for taking part.

      Thanks Kate, i have high hope that he’ll be a great sports star. All that energy has to be put to good use somewhere!

    Great post – we are all done with nappies thank goodness! I have to say that Pampers are the best ones out there. Kaz x

      I was quite surprised by the inner workings of a Pampers nappy. I’ve never had the incentive to cut up a nappy and see how it works until now!

  9. 23rd February 2016 / 1:54 pm

    Haha! I have a climber too. She’s just turned one and only just walking but can already scale all the living room furniture. I think she’ll be as active as yours very quickly.

    The nappies do actually look really impressive. Sucked up all that liquid so quickly and held up to all that climbing! ????

    • 23rd February 2016 / 1:55 pm

      Not sure why all the question marks at the end!

    • 23rd February 2016 / 8:43 pm

      Its amazing how quickly they pick it up isn’t it. my son went from walking to climbing in no time at all. Nothing is safe in the house!

  10. 23rd February 2016 / 6:25 pm

    Awe that was so cute! I remember the potty training days well … He’s definitely got Swag lol xx

    We used pampers for Monkey from the age of about 3 months onwards, switching to active fit when he was mobile. Although that was a while ago they were brilliant then. I will trying out their new technology when our little one arrives in May x
