Tesco Super Fit Nappies have been revamped and relaunched in July 2010 to offer a slimmer, but equally absorbent, nappy.

Tesco is right about one thing: the nappy is the most important piece of baby kit to get right. After all, there’s very little else your baby wears 24/7 until potty training gets underway.

The Tesco Super Fit nappies do the essential job of absorbing your baby’s wee and poo but the ‘innovative technology’ that is supposed to make them slimmer and lighter than your average nappy doesn’t have me convinced.

The label promises an improved,  slimmer, better fit for your baby. The idea is there’ll be less bulk between the legs for active babies, allowing for better freedom of movement and comfort. My 15-month-old baby Edith is their target baby – active and adventurous. But each time I put a Superfit nappy on her I couldn’t help but feel they were more tank-like than feather-light.

Prices range from £3.99 for a Carry Pack of 32 midi size to £6.49 for an Economy Pack of 40 Junior Plus size.

What we love

Yes, Tesco Super Fit Nappies are super absorbent, which is an essential quality for a baby who sleeps through the night.

The images on the nappies are super cute – lions, monkeys, elephants and hippos – and add in a small way to nappy changes being fun and even educational.

All up, it’s a reasonable performance for a budget nappy.

What to watch out for

There’s nothing fundamentally wrong with Tesco Super Fit Nappies. They do the job well, but they just don’t live up to their promise of being less bulky. There seemed to be a bigger wodge of nappy between the legs than many other nappy brands. Because of this, I felt they weren’t really the right choice for summer nappies. There just seemed to be too much of them, despite being the right size for my daughter.

Who are Tesco Super Fit Nappies best for?

MadeForMums verdict

The marketing of the Tesco Super Fit Nappies boasts about a hi-tech innovative design, and while they do avoid leaks and absorb well, they’re not the slim, light nappies you might think they’ll be. If you’re after a nappy that offers a decent price and a decent performance, these are worth considering – just don’t base your decision on the hope of a slimline nappy.
