Think Belgium, think chocolates, waffles (haha!), beer and other delectable indulgences. Diapers? Not so much.
I was pleasantly surprised to test out Nateen, Belgian-made diaper line for babies. In the course of researching on the brand, I learnt the company has been in the business for the past 20 years and is no newcomer in the market. Which would explain the high quality, almost lush feel of the diaper. I kid you not, it felt premium.
My kid has been using the same brand since birth and I have always liked its thin yet absorbent qualities. Nateen was definitely bulkier in comparison though its softness and dry surface probably made up for it. The leg cuff protection was definitely more comprehensive, which also meant she could go about on her monkey ways and I didn’t have to worry too much about leakages.
Babies are in diapers for the first few years of their infant lives and it’s important for us to find the best fit – high absorbency, comfortable and lasting wear – to make sure they don’t get nappy rash and the inconvenience of changing diapers too many times! We used about 1.5 cups of coloured water to show how absorbent the Nateen diaper is and we are so impressed by how much water it can hold! @absorbanateendiapers is giving away 1 set of baby diapers worth S$46.80.

Its bulkiness however, did make it uncomfortable for my kid during full load as the diaper was hanging off her bum. It just meant I had to be more religious about diaper changes. The wetness indicator is most useful, and frankly, this feature should be hygiene across all diaper brands.
I liked that Nateen Diapers is free from many of the big no-nos such as chlorine, fragrance and is hypoallergenic. My kid has sensitive skin so she’s the ultimate litmus test for skin irritant properties. In this respect, Nateen passed with flying colours and is definitely a brand to consider if price is not a big consideration as this brand is definitely not cheap.
Nateen is available on turbo-med.com.
