Diapers Are A Mom’s Best Friend

Posted on: September 1, 2012


Disposable v/s Cloth Diapers

Diapers are a mom’s best friend, undoubtedly. Once the baby born, most hospitals will put disposable diapers on your baby! So, it’s okay to use it right after birth! Each day, a baby needs to change diapers between 8 to 12 times (average). It’s really a personal decision- but disposable diapers- are absolutely fine on a newborns skin. In my experience the best disposable diapers in India are as follows:

  1. Pampers New Baby – Victor Mills was an American chemical engineer who, while working for the Procter & Gamble Co., revolutionized child care with the invention of the disposable diaper. He began work on that product in the 1950s, using his grandchildren as test subjects. Today, Pampers are found around the world. Available in a variety of sizes, shapes and colors, Pampers are sold wherever diapers are sold.
  2. Evy Baby New Born
  3. Pigeon Small
  4. Wipro Small
  5. Huggies New Baby – Owned by the 140-year-old Wisconsin company Kimberly-Clark, Huggies are distributed in 150 countries. Varieties include newborn to toddler diapers, overnites, jean diapers, swimmers, baby wipes, and diapers for bed wetters, among others. Available everywhere diapers are sold.
  6. Mamy Poko Pants ( easy for babies who  can stand up – 1 year onwards)

Many parents prefer to buy large packs of Diapers, depending on their budgets and suitability to child. For the first few days, buy small packs of diapers and see which one suits your baby’s skin the best in terms of absorbance, rash, bulkiness and leak-proof material.

Diapers available at Mums N Munchkins are Pigeon, Evy Baby and Pampers Active Baby. Best Price for Diapers 10% off on All Diapers in Gurgaon.

Features to look out for in diapers –

Wetness indicator – Some diapers, such as Pampers Swaddlers Sensitive, have a wetness indicator that lets you know your baby needs a change.

Cutout (for newborns) – Newborn sizes of many brands of disposable diapers have a curved front or cutout to avoid irritating the still-healing navel area. Some parents just fold a regular diaper down until the area fully heals.

Stretch sides – These sides help the diaper to do a better job of molding to a baby’s body, which can help stop leaks. Diapers with stretch sides can be more comfortable, too. This feature is found on disposable diapers and on waterproof cloth diaper covers and all-in-one cloth diaper styles.

Diaper Rash

Babies  who wear diapers may experience skin irritation, commonly referred to as diaper rash, due to contact with fecal matter, as feces contains urease which catalyzes the conversion of the urea in urine to ammonia which can irritate the skin and can cause painful redness. The best diaper rash creams have the highest amount of zinc oxide in them. The higher the ingredient of zinc oxide, the better it is at protecting the baby’s skin from allergies and rashes. Other method is to simply use Vaseline petroleum jelly to your baby’s bottom before you put her in diapers. The jelly acts as a barrier between the skin and diaper, thus preventing the rash.

Best Diaper Rash Creams Available

  1. Sudocream
  2. Desitin
  3. Mothercare Nappy Rash Cream
  4. Chicco Diaper Rash Cream
  5. Pigeon Diaper Rash Cream
  6. Himalaya Diaper Rash Cream

Cloth Diapers

Other way to prevent diaper rash is to put the baby in cloth diapers though it increases the work load for the mother. Cloth diapers can be much less expensive than disposables.  After paying the initial cost, you’ll save huge money by reusing cloth diapers again and again.

Various Types of Cloth Diapers are Tinycare’s Square Nappies, U-Shaped with cord, Triangle Nappies, Nappies with outer plastic inner cloth, with valcro etc. You can also choose diapers with inserts (cloth pads or disposable pads added to increase absorbency), waterproof covers to lock in moisture, and/or flushable liners that help to contain the mess. Liners eliminate the need to rinse cloth diapers before depositing them in a diaper pail.
