Review: Merries Diapers

When I was pregnant with Blake, I decided that I will breastfeed her and use cloth diapers, because you know, its “cheaper” and “earth friendly”. When my baby was born, all it took was one incident and I’m back to using disposables. 😛 Please don’t hate me for doing so. It’s just not working for me. And I am lucky that Blake doesn’t have any reaction to diapers. I never had nappy problems even when she was still a baby. (Except for that one time that we waited too long before changing her nappies).

Now that she’s a toddler, I’m still happy with the current brand that we use. BUT then we were introduced to:

Merries Diapers: Japan’s No. 1 diaper brand

I immediately fell in love with this product. The inside lining is made of cotton! Not plastic. COTTON.

So how does it fare compared to the popular brand? Let’s see:

Full nappy. Fresh from baby’s bum and very full in the morning!

The nappy was so full but no leakage. CHECK! To show you how good this brand is, I used the tissue test like so:

press facial tissue on a very wet nappy


 And LOOK!!

It didn’t get soaked at all! Sure there were wet spots but that’s just moisture. Baby’s bottom is very much dry! With the popular brand, I’ve had incidents where I woke up to a soaked baby and a very wet spot on the bed. 

One thing more I  like about Merries is that it doesn’t really stink of pee. Probably because of the cotton. And it has wetness indicators so you won’t have to guess if you need to change nappies. I definitely recommend this product! Sure, it’s a bit pricey but I didn’t have to change a lot too. It’s still value for money.
