What is the CHOICE Expert Rating

CHOICE Expert rating

This is the product's overall performance score, based on key tests conducted by our industry experts in the CHOICE labs.

We recommend nappies in all categories that score at least 80% overall and at least 70% for absorbency, rewet, velcro strength and leakage. 

CHOICE Expert Rating View more details.

This overall score is made up of absorbency (40%), leakage (30%), rewet (20%) and velcro strength scores (10%). Note: Only nappies within each type are directly comparable to one another, so use our filter tool to sort by type (newborn, infant, crawler etc).

Absorbency score View more details.

Using synthetic urine, gushes of the liquid are dosed into the centre of the nappy using a pump. For newborn nappies each gush is 30mL, for infant nappies it's 40mL, for crawler nappies it's 50mL, for toddler nappies it's 55mL, for walker nappies it's 60mL and for junior nappies it's 65mL. This simulates a child wearing the nappy overnight. We measure the amount of time it takes for the liquid to disappear. This is repeated three times with a five-minute gap between each gush. The total time taken for all four gushes to be absorbed is the absorption speed.

This is a visual assessment where we check if any leaks come out the side of the nappy.

Rewet score View more details.

Five minutes after the last gush from the absorption test, six pre-weighed dry filter papers are placed on the wet nappy and held down for 30 seconds. The filter paper is then removed and weighed. Ideally, the filter paper should remain relatively dry.
