I am a big advocate of Made in Nigeria goods especially in these hard times we are now in. However I have also found that when big brands start producing in Nigeria or for Nigerians the quality is not that good as if to say you guys are not worth the best and I find that highly irritating. Diapers are very important to a mum because you want the best , you want something that won’t be bulky , something that will stay dry because dealing with diaper rash is a traumatising experience for any mum and if you are into cute things you also want it to look cute.
When I had Kunmi I tried the Nigerian Pampers and I was highly disappointed, it was never dry and it used to swell up like crazy so his diapers will always sag like he had been wearing it for days and it just was not going to work for me even if it was cheaper because it meant he was never really dry and he would have diaper rash and it was bad.
So when I heard Tiwa Savage was the new Pampers ambassador I was disappointed , I mean I am all for making money but if you are going to be telling millions of Nigeria mums to buy a product at least endorse a good product.

While I was busy thinking these thoughts I got an email asking me to review Pampers and before I could say No (like they knew I would be hesitant) they told me they had improved it and its a completely new product (Diaper) so because of that I decided I might as well give it a try.
They sent me a months supply of diapers for size 3 which is for babies that weigh 4-9kg, the pack has 10 diapers in it, the actual look of the diapers are nice , they have nice cartoon like designs on it so its nice to look at which I really like. The diapers are not heavy to start with so it was quite easy for Ire to wiggle and move around in them. I also noticed that the new pampers stretches which is great because you can make the diapers as tight or as loose as you want it either way you can get a comfortable fit for the baby.
The pampers also have Super Gel technology which is supposed to lock away the moisture so even if baby pees or poo’s the pampers are supposed to stay dry and as we all know how much I am terrified of Nappy Rash I find keeping baby dry very very extremely important. To test this out I wore pampers for Ire at night just before bed and I can say I was pleasantly surprised the Pampers did stay dry and they didn’t bulk up as much as the Old Pampers used to.

We have been using the diapers for a little over 2 weeks now and no Nappy rash! Over all I would say I am impressed by the new product, it so much better than it used to be and its a step in the right direction. Its gets the thumbs up from me! Dry Diapers! Happy Baby!
