Parents Make Simple Nappies Mistake

If you’re a mum or dad to little ones, you might think you’re well versed in disposable nappies. However, it has emerged countless parents have been getting a simple thing wrong. It’s because the plus symbol on nappy packs, which parents thought meant the nappy was just a bit bigger, indicates added absorbency, not size!  For example, 4+ isn’t a step up between size four and five. Who knew? Not many, apparently!

As The Sun reports, Supermarkets such as Sainsbury’s and Asda already explain this essential simple rule on their websites. Asda states: “If you’ve seen two nappies with the same number, but one has a plus symbol (+) next to it, then it simply means that this nappy has added absorbency. This makes it ideal for night-time use, for babies who drink a lot or for babies that have larger bladders. The nappies are still the same size as each other.”

As the Mirror reports, mum-of-two Nicci shared a Facebook post saying: "Who knew this? I always thought the plus ones went up higher on the back." And she got a huge reaction from mums who'd always thought the same thing.

Were you mistaken by the nappy symbol like so many others? Let us know over on our Facebook and Twitter.
