Making sure that you pick the right one can cause frustration and a bit of desperation. To help, we wanted to make sure that the criteria we used to pick our list used the things you would want to consider before buying. Our criteria included:
While the price you pay for your child’s diapers is very important, choosing to not go cheap on diapers may be your best option. The more you pay may provide your with a better quality diaper that holds up to even the biggest messes while choosing to spend less on store brand diapers could come back to bite you if your little one has a blowout. And yes, they do happen.
Making sure that the diapers you choose fit your little one can save you a diaper that sags when wet or dirty. A properly fit diaper should fit snugly around their legs and around their waist. With almost all disposable diapers, adjusting using the adhesive tabs is easy so that the diaper isn’t too tight on their little body.
When you first get to the diaper aisle, you’ll likely notice these little numbers on each box and package. This number indicates the size of the diaper your child will wear. These can start from premie all the way to size 7, which is determined by the weight of your child.
Benefits of a disposable diapers
Part of the benefit that comes with using disposable diapers in right in the name. They’re disposable. While this is likely the biggest benefit of using disposable diapers, it is far from the only one. Other benefits include:
Being out with the family at dinner or at a family party can be a bad place to have to try and clean a cloth diaper, dry it and put it back on your child. Obviously, you could bring more, or you could bring multiple diapers that you don’t have to wash, you can just throw away when you’re all done cleaning up your little bundle of joy.
Easy to change
Changing a disposable diaper can take no more than a couple of minutes, depending on the mess. Being able to do this quickly can be very practical and very easy to get used to doing, so changing your little one’s diaper when you’re out shopping doesn’t have to be the big hassle you may think it is.
A baby’s skin can be very sensitive to the fabrics and materials that touch their skin. Diapers are not immune to this as some diapers can contain chemicals that may cause a reaction to their skin. To combat this, manufacturers have started making hypoallergenic diapers to help. Be careful though. As this isn’t regulated by any agency, some manufacturers can claim they are hypoallergenic when they aren’t.
