As they are getting ready to move from nappies to the potty, these pull-up pants are easy (and quick) to take off, but still offer comfort and protect against leaks, if they occur. Here is our list of the best pull-up potty training nappies on the market:


1. Pampers Baby-Dry Pants, 15p per nappy, MFM Joint Gold Award Winner

Changing your busy toddler’s nappy can prove impossible if they are having so much fun and refusing to stay still! So these gold award-winning, pants-style nappies from Pampers are an ideal solution for busy mums to quickly pull them up and on and even more easily removed – simply tear the sides.


Super absorbent, these nappies will keep your little one dry, with breathable material to allow for their delicate skin to breathe and stretchy sides panels and leg cuffs so that they are comfortable and gentle on your child’s skin.Our judging mums and dads, and their children, found these nappies reliable and well-fitting.

Another firm favourite with our judges, Pampers Active-Fit Pants provide a great fit and promise up to 12 hours of dryness. 

They have 3 absorbing channels that help distribute wetness, and they are super easy to pull up and down. Their sides can be torn to remove them very quickly. So whether you’re using them to combat toddler wriggling, or to help with potty training, they are very practical.

What our MadeForMums Awards judges say about Pampers Active-Fit Pants:

3. Asda Little Angels First Pants featuring Peppa Pig, £3.87, MFM Silver Award Winner

These pull-up pants by Asda promise up to 12 hours of protection thanks to some unique features, so it’s no surprise that they won our MFM silver award for pants style nappies this year. 

They’re easy for little ones to pull up themselves, to help them on the road to potty learning. They have a soft elasticated waist, leg cuffs and sides to protect against leaks, but they’re also soft and have even been awarded a dermatological accreditation by the Skin Health Alliance.

The trademarked “aqua lock” layers keep baby’s skin dry to reduce rashes and irritation, and the colourful character designs are a hit with kids.
