It was all a bad idea from the start :( - I went into the shop and there was about 3 girls stood in the nappy isle, but I wasn't going to be put off I had gone to the shop for a reason - So I simply ignored them and picked up what I wanted and started walking away.. Well as soon as they saw what I'd picked up with the big 8-15 years written on it they started giggling amongst themselves.. I ignored them, but I must have gone about 100 shades of red.

Anyway, finally I get them home and examine them.. They're very very thin, not as stretchy and overall not a very nice nappy! - The first thing I noticed when I took one out of the packet was the smell, you know, the smell of Pampers! - That's a plus about them.

They also appear to be alot crinklier than the previous Drynites, good or bad, you decide!!

I'm wearing one right now and it's comfortable, but I'm standing in the tub when I wet it because I doubt it's going to hold much at all.

Interesting that they smell like pampers. I would get them just for that. I'm jealous. However they look a lot like the goodnites.

have they gone back to the original sizing or are they still on the too-small-to-be-any-use trim-fit size?

too-small-to-be-any-use trim-fit size!!!

I've thrown mine away, waste I know but meh! - Recently I've been using Tena Slip Maxi and I guess I'm comparing Drynites to Tena too much..

The only good thing about the DN's is the Pampers smell and crinklyness I guess.

Hahaha about the mugs they put on the bag!
Hahaha

It's weird to see a 15 years old boy on a bag of diaper.

I'm surprised you don't like them, actually. There's not that much to like, but drynites are enjoyable nonetheless. Even if it's just for their smell, simplicity, target market and accessibility.. You can get them in any old supermarket, while getting most other kinds of nappies in Europe requires either going to a large pharmacy or ordering them online.

I would agree they're not very useful. But it's a pull-up diaper, what more do you wish for.

Dang. That does suck. Did Goodnites change again again? I thought they just recently redid them. Hmm. Interesting.

I'm sorry to hear about your situation. I how you are able to get some real diapers asap.

Hmm, to be honest the new drynites with the blue waistband 'are' bigger then the previous ones, no doubt about it. only about 1/2 to 1 inch either side.

Though i have heard that the ones in the US have now been changed and are slightly smaller again :S.

Why i don't know lol.

Hmm. Maybe they are tying to save money. The bad economy could be affecting them too.
