Theres A New Nappy In Town!

Did you know that babies spend around half their time asleep? Those precious hours aren’t just important for their mood, but they also have a positive impact on their development, too. So as a mum to a newborn I am really excited that Pampers are launching a brand new innovation and upgrade to UK parents’ #1 nappy choice and introducing 3 Absorbing Channels!

New Pampers Baby-Dry feature a revolutionary nappy design with 3 Absorbing Channels and unique Micro Pearls™ that distribute wetness more evenly and lock it away for up to 12 hours. This means less big heavy wet nappies in the morning so little ones can wake up smiling.

UK parents agree that these really are something special! New Pampers Baby-Dry has been recommended by a whooping 88% of UK parents *. New Pampers Baby-Dry have also been BritMums Bloggers Approved, Mumsnet Rated, Mother & Baby Tried and Tested and 90% of Netmums mums would recommend New Pampers Baby-Dry. So with New Pampers Baby-Dry working as hard as possible, little ones can finally say goodbye to a heavy wet nappy and hello to a dry night’s sleep!

Starfish, Skylark, Sloth, Owl or Meerkat?

To celebrate the launch of New Pampers Baby-Dry, Pampers are working with baby sleep expert Jo Tantum – who is a member of the Pampers Love, Sleep and Play panel and has 25 years’ experience helping hundreds of families to achieve a peaceful night’s sleep. The type of lady most of us parents would like to know! Jo has cleverly identified these 5 sleep typologies to help parents understand their baby’s sleep habits and needs better. I think we can count ourselves as one of the lucky ones with a little Sloth on our hands. Read on to see if your little one is a Starfish, Skylark, Sloth, Owl or Meerkat sleeper and let me know using #PampersBabyDry



This is when your baby sleeps in the same position, on their back with legs and arms out. They also wake up often and regularly, but they don’t go back to sleep easily after you intervene with a sleep prop – which they need to get to sleep!

Jo’s Tip: A muslin square, knotted in the middle. Tuck it down your top before giving it to baby so it smells of you and comforts them. Also, try to teach your baby to fall asleep on their own gently. Start in the day, at nap times, watching for tired signs, then settle them for a sleep in their room.



These are the babies that wake up early in the morning, singing and shouting, and refuse to go back to sleep whatever you try!

Jo’s Tip: Wave sounds. This can be a sleep App or sound machine. Keep it on continually while baby is asleep, so when they come into a light sleep phase it soothes them back to sleep. Total blackout is also key – remember that babies can’t tell the time! They don’t know it’s 5am! If your baby wakes up early, try to respond to them as though it’s still night, rather than creating a habit of early waking.



These little ones love sleep and can sleep anywhere and everywhere – lucky you! But what happens when they wake up? You will know it’s going to be for a growth or developmental spurt or they are teething or not well.

Jo’s Tip: Increase feeding time by 5 minutes, if breast feeding and by 30ml if bottle feeding. If your baby is close to 6 months old, they may need weaning.



This is when your baby goes to bed late and then wakes up in the night. They’re wide awake for long periods and can’t get back to sleep!

Jo’s Tip: A Sleep Fest! Allow your baby to sleep for 3 hours during the day to reset their internal clock. Babies need lots of sleep and it’s a myth that if you don’t give them naps, they will be so tired that they’ll sleep through the night.



They stand up, move around trying to get comfortable all night and they don’t want to sleep. They’re late to bed and early to rise.

Jo’s Tip: Wind Down Time. Try bath-story-feed to establish a calming bedtime routine. Your baby is overtired and so they will thrash around trying to get comfortable just like we do. They will have lots of energy around bedtime and early in the morning, as their bodies and minds are overstimulated.

    These sound good, I’m sure Poppy will be a real wriggler before too long. At the moment we have to try and wedge her a bit so she can’t get stuck or roll over and not get back! #marvmondays

    We use Pampers Baby Dry for overnight nappies to try and stop me having to change a soaked baby and bed in the early hours……. it works about 80% of the time which is better than the cheaper brands I used before! Worth the price I’d say! He doesn’t seem to fit into any of those catagories though – his sleep changes daily haha #marvmondays

    We love Pampers Baby Dry, they’re much better than other brands I’ve tried! My little boy doesn’t fit in any of those sleep categories, I would love it if he was a bit more sloth like though!! #marvmondays #KCACOLS

    We used Pampers loads when Lewis was first born and always found them excellent. The only reason we switched was the price was just a little too high whilst on maternity leave. I’m definitely going to grab a free sample to try the new version out though! Lewis is definitely a skylark. He’ll sleep through the night but wakes up at 5am and will chat away to himself for ages until I go into him where he’s all smiles and ready to play! Mummy not so much! #MarvMondays

    I will be giving these a try, I hate it when my little one wakes up with a heavy nappy. It must be so uncomfortable for her.
