  • Good value for money, good overall performance


  • Rough papery feel, poor night-time performance for babies that end up on tummy

Boots super dry nappies fit snuggly and offer leak-free performance and good absorbency in the day, but aren’t always 100% reliable at night.


If you use disposable nappies, avoiding the bigger names in favour of an own-brand can really save you money, particularly if you have more than one child in nappies. So, who better to turn to than a tried-and-trusted Boots, with its super dry nappies?

Why we love it

As a twin mum with 6-month-old babies I’m always looking for ways to cut down the nappy bill, but when I’ve tried own-brand nappies in the past, I’ve often been disappointed by their performance in comparison to the big-name brand I normally use.

A bit of research on the internet found mixed opinions about Boots super dry nappies, but at 6p less per nappy than Pampers Baby Dry they offer much better value for money.

Boots super dry nappies are unisex in design with sweet yellow pictures on them and they were easy to fit and change. There are two re-sealable tapes on each side so you can easily adjust the nappy to fit. I tested size 3 nappies, for babies weighing 4-9kg, and they fitted snugly and securely on my twin boys, who both weigh around 8kg.

In the day time the Boots super dry nappies performed just as well as my usual Pampers and the absorbent core ensured that my babies’ bottoms remained dry and rash free. We didn’t have any leakages despite putting them through their paces as my twins are just beginning to eat solid food.

What to watch out for

I found the Boots super dry nappies had a bit of a rough, papery feel. The twins seemed comfortable enough, but this difference would put me off buying them again.

At night Boots super dry nappies performed perfectly on Zach, who sleeps on his back, but Jonah, who sleeps on his tummy, woke up with a soaked front every day that he wore these nappies.

Who are Boots super dry nappies best for?

Mums on a budget with babies who can’t roll onto their tummies at night.


MadeForMums verdict

The overall performance of Boots super dry nappies is good in terms of being absorbent and leak-free, and they offer good value for money. However, they do have a slightly papery feel of them and only give a good night-time performance for babies that stay asleep on their backs.
