01.Introduction

Disposable-nappies

User trial of 11 disposable nappies priced from $0.25 to $0.47 per nappy

We asked our trialists to assess:

  • Leakage and dryness
  • Shifting of the nappy material
  • The effectiveness of the nappy fasteners
  • The size of the nappy
  • Each nappy brand overall and tell us how likely they would be to buy it.

Please note: this information was current as of February 2007 but is still a useful guide to today's market. For more recent information, see our Disposable nappies review 2010.


Almost 100 volunteers and their babies trialled disposable nappies, each rating 10 'daytime' nappies from seven different brands.

CHOICE tests are different. We buy the products we test — no freebies from manufacturers. Companies can't buy ads on our site and our work is funded by people like you.

Findings:

One nappy brand was far and away the favourite with our trialists and their babies.
