Yesterday I got some Abena M4's delivered as I heard they're pretty good and there's a review on adisc somewhere also confirming this.However when I tried one on for the first time I found some problems.The biggest issue for me was the tapes and fitting.
When I first put one on they fit really nice and they're comfy but after a while of walking around the home the nappy became more and more loose around the hip and started sliding down.This meant I had to keep re-fastening them which meant they would stay in place for a while longer but then after a very short while they would lose their fitting again and start sliding down my hips.I could barely walk from my sitting room to my bedroom before they had practically slid down my leg.The constant re-fastening also meant the tapes were losing their stick.I don't know why they would fit snug at first but then after a short while they become too slack.I suspect its to do with the construction material as they're not plastic backed.The only way I can get them to stay in place is if I wear trousers or trakkies over them to hold them up.
The absorbency is very good though, but after wetting them in bed last night, when I got up the tapes on one side bust and the nappy sagged to one side.This never happened with my tena slip maxis.Also after a heavy wetting, although it didn't leak the absorbancy padding became a bit lumpy and out of shape.Again I never had this issue with my Tena slips which very sadly are going cloth backed.
Has anybody else here had similar issues with this brand of nappy's?.I'm surprised to be having such issues with a brand that has such good reviews.
I wasn't really writing this as a review, I just wanted to know others experience of this nappy brand.
