Hey all just wondering if anyone here has tried either the pampers easy ups size 8 or the Fred and flo easy ups size 8?

First time I've come across them and my experience with baby easy ups they always seem a fair bit smaller than there equivalent weight in tape versions albeit I am lucky enough to still have a slim waist and can still fit most product lines size 6 they just sit low and usually use mamia size 7 and pampers size 8.

I have tried Pampers size 8 pants. They actually fit me and hold a decent amount. I too have a slim waist.

I'm going to try and fit some time to get them in today I fit size 7 and 8 well so hopefully they are close to a 7 😁
 
I've tried the Size 8 Pampers pull-ups. Lets just say that I definitely need to hit the gym soon...

I think I must have undone my ability to squeeze into the Tesco size 8 by starting back at the gym, my thighs have pumped up to the point I only have 1 pair of jeans I can still get over them.
The pullups where hit or miss before when it came to them ripping while getting them on but I've got no chance now, the pampers size 8 nappy pants ripped every time and would barely get above my knees, but the Tesco ones I could actually wear for a short time.
 
So this is a slight tangent from the OP, and I speak as a non-parent so I think I'm probably missing something, but....
What is the point of nappy pants? Are they simple Pull-Ups in smaller sizes, with more absorbency?

From a changing point of view - I get the tear away sides make removal easier, but then surely the wearer has to have shoes, trousers etc removed to get the new pants on. So what's the actual advantage over a nappy?

Or is it just to start the "big kid" feeling soon, and encourage using the potty, which obviously IS easier.

What am I missing?!

I probably should've said "lose weight" for clarity :ROFLMAO:

But yeah, that's my experience with Pampers Size 8 pull-ups. It's a 50/50 chance of getting them on without tearing. And they don't even absorb as well as the normal Size 8 Baby-Drys.

Interesting that you had better luck (in the past) with the Tesco pull-ups. Might try those next time.

Yeah same experience here. If I'm quite careful and take it slow, I can just barely get these on. But even then, they usually split halfway up one side. Once they're on though, they tend to hold OK. I can fit comfortably into Drynites and even Ninjamas to a lesser degree, but these are just ever so slightly too small. All that said, for my body type (slim waist, relatively thin thighs), I do think they're currently the best-fitting nappy pant available in the UK right now.

They're diapers, not training pants, just in a pant form (the absorbency is better than a pull-up, and more like that of a diaper). I guess a lot of kids get to an age where they don't like to lay down for wet changes, so a stand-up change using these would be easier, though you're correct, if the child has on shoes and pants, you'd need to strip them down to put a new one on. I guess I could have seen the advantages from time to time when my kids were smaller to using those, but not frequently enough that I would have used them all the time.
We did use Huggies Little Movers back when those were a thing with my oldest when he still needed the protection of a diaper but we were trying to encourage him to use the potty, thinking that he could pull them up and down. It didn't work, lol.

Just picked up the pampers size 8 pants, first they went on straight away no issues ripping apart but was rather tight and sit a little lower than the nappie version. Then I moved 😅 one side ripped half way up lol it's still on but not sure how long for will look into Tesco's version when a I get a min to pop to there supper store just out of town
 
So I've been wearing one since lunch time a good 6hrs, I don't wet as I'm DL so carnt comment on what they hold. It's lasted the afternoon and some how the sides haven't managed to rip all the way up but they have ripped up with only a normal tab size left holding.

I have taken some photos the normal nappie is still a tiny bit larger in size with a slightly wide profile to it but I'm glad I've tried now I had such a urge to see this lol.
