How to Choose Diapers for your Newborn Baby?
With babies, diapers come! The first and foremost thing a baby needs after coming into the world is a diaper. When it comes to babies, as a parent or a caregiver you cannot compromise on your baby’s well-being.
Since diapers have a huge role to play in a baby’s health, here is a complete guide that will guide you on how to choose diapers for your newborn baby. Let’s get started:
Do Some Research: We are sure you would be reading a lot of books in order to provide the best care to the baby who is yet to arrive. One more research that you need to do is on diapers. Look for the renowned brands or the ones with the best reviews. Or rather choose the eco-friendly ones and pick from a variety including cloth diapers, disposable ones, and biodegradable diapers. Choose what type you think is the best for the baby.
Diaper’s Material: Make sure the diaper is soft on the baby’s skin and offers ample breathability in order to protect your baby from rashes. Biodegradable diapers are the best option when it comes to materials. Biodegradable diapers are made of pure cotton, vitamin E and other natural materials rather than chemicals—which makes them outshine regular diapers.
Absorbance Quality: One of the most important factors to look for in a diaper is its absorbance quality. A diaper with poor absorbance can lead to problems like chafing, rashes, and even infections in babies. Make sure you choose a diaper that has been tested for its absorbency levels, so it is totally safe for your baby’s skin causing zero allergic reaction or health issues.
Fastening Style: Every diaper has a different fastening style like velcro, grips, adhesive, or pins. You better watch some videos or read tutorials because fastening a diaper needs to be quick. That is only possible if your chosen diaper has a fastening style that is easy and doable for you.
Wetness Indicator: Baby pampers have come a long way and now you can have smart diapers for your baby that come with a wetness indicator. The diapers have lines on them that change their color once the diaper gets filled. This way parents don’t have to worry and check the diaper every hour or so. Not many brands offer this feature so you better look out for the ones that do if you want a regular diaper.
Budget-Friendly: With many options on the market, you must make a cost estimate beforehand. A newborn baby needs an average of 4-5 diapers a day before they get potty-trained, so each baby consumes up to 5000 diapers. Rest is maths! Biodegradable diapers are not only earth-friendly but also budget-friendly.
Diapers are essential for the baby and must be chosen with great care. However, by choosing a planet-friendly diaper option, you not only save the baby’s skin but also the world your baby will live in.
