Which is the best pull-up nappy when you're potty training your toddler or just need a nappy that makes changing your baby quick and easy? We asked goodtoknow mums to test 5 of the most popular pull-up nappies to help you decide on the nappy for the job.

As soon as your baby can stand on their own two feet it gets harder to change their nappy because all they want to do is to keep moving. Pull-up nappies can make changing your little wriggler quicker and feel like less of a battle. Plus, they're easy for your toddler to pull up and down while they're potty training - just like real pants.

We asked 5 lovely goodtoknow mums to test 5 of the most popular pull-up nappies out on their toddlers and score them out of 5 for comfort, skin care and absorbency during day and night-time use, to help you decide on the best pull-up nappy for your little one. Our mums have also scored each pull-up nappy on its value for money too, because there's no point in splashing out on a nappy that doesn't do its job.

The nappies we tested are:

  • Pampers Easy Up pants - £6.49 (carry pack price)

  • Huggies Step-in nappies - £6.48 (carry pack price)

  • Boots easy on pants - £4.99 (carry pack price)

  • Tesco Everyday Value pants - £2.99 (carry pack price)

Pampers Easy Up pants

Pampers says its Easy Up pants promise unbeatable dryness and they come with tearable sides to make changing your baby easier. goodtoknow mum Elizabeth Wrag joined our testing panel to try out Pampers Easy Up pants on her 20-month-old son, Harry. Elizabeth scored the nappies out of 5 for...

Night-time use: 5/5

Absorbency of wee: 5/5

Containing poo: 5/5

Value for money: 4/5

Elizabeth said: 'Pampers Easy Up pants suited Harry's needs as they were soft against his skin and allowed him to walk around freely, without being restrictive or bulky.

'I didn't experience any leakages with these nappies overnight or with any soiled nappies and they were also really easy to put on and take off. The nappies are good quality and good value for money too.'

Would you use this nappy again? 'I have been won over by Pampers Easy Up pants and would definitely use them again and recommend them to my friends. They were great when put to the test for 10 hours' night-time wear! And Harry seemed perfectly happy wearing them as he was free to run around and play as usual. He also noticed the Bob the Builder design on the front, which made nappy changing more fun for him.'

Huggies Step-in nappies

Huggies says its Step-in nappies are super-stretchy and still have full nappy absorbency to help keep your baby dry and happy too. goodtoknow mum Claire Darragh joined our testing panel to try out Huggies Step-in nappies on her 21-month-old son, Luka. Claire scored the nappies out of 5 for...

Claire said: 'Huggies Step-in nappies appeared to be comfy for Luka and we had no leaks. He also loved the Winnie the Pooh and Tigger design, which made nappy changes less difficult.

'The nappies also had great absorbency and were a great fit and really easy to take off with the side fastenings - they could even be fastened again if needed.'

Would you use this nappy again? 'Yes, Huggies Step-in nappies were nice and comfy and the fun design made my little one (and mammy) happy!'

Boots easy on pants

Best pull up nappy

Boots says its easy on pants are stretchy and protect your toddler from leaks with its super-absorbent core. goodtoknow mum Claire Darragh joined out testing panel to try out Boots easy on pants on her 21-month-old son, Luka. Claire scored the nappies out of 5 for...

Comfort: 4/5

Skin care: 4/5

Day time use: 3/5

Night-time use: 4/5

Absorbency of wee: 4/5

Containing poo: 1/5

Value for money: 3/5

Overall pull up nappy score: 23/35

Claire said: 'Generally Boots easy on pants were great, but on a couple of occasions poo came out of the nappy, resulting in soiled clothes - which was uncomfortable for the little one and meant lots of scrubbing and washing for me. The elasticated inside pant bit perhaps needs to be a better fit to stop things escaping.

'And nappy changes were an absolute nightmare if Luca had done a number 2 as it would fall out as I pulled the nappy off, so I'd have to have him standing up to get it off, but then try and lay him back down, trying not to let the dirt go everywhere, which wasn't easy when Luca was squirming and wanted to run off and play.'

Would you use this nappy again? 'No, because of the style of the nappy. I found that they weren't easy to get on and off and are not the most practical nappies if your baby does a number 2 - unless there's a special method of taking them off cleanly, which I haven't figured out. With normal nappies you can adjust them as you wish. With these pull-on type nappies you are unable to do this.'

Tesco Everyday Value pants

Best pull up nappy

Tesco says its Everyday Value pants are developed by baby care experts. goodtoknow mum and Family channel editor, Jennifer Bounsall, joined our testing panel to try out Tesco Everyday Value pants on her 18-month-old son, Samuel. Jenny scored the nappies out of 5 for...

Comfort: 4/5

Skin care: 3/5

Day time use: 2/5

Night-time use: 4/5

Absorbency of wee: 3/5

Containing poo: 4/5

Value for money: 3/5

Overall pull up nappy score: 23/35

Jenny said: 'Tesco Everyday Value pants look really basic and don't have any design whatsoever, but they were very soft, stretchy and fitted Samuel better than I thought they would. I was also pleased to find they didn't leak, even during the night.

'The only thing that put me off was that the nappy got very heavy, very quickly and fell down after a few hours.'

Would you use again? 'I'd keep these nappies on standby in case I ran out of my favourite pull-up nappy. However, I'd have to change Samuel twice as often as I usually do, to avoid the nappy falling down - so these nappies actually aren't as cost effective as they might seem. I'd prefer to buy a pull-up nappy that lasts longer.'
