Best Buy Products: Diapers
Did you know that a single baby can go through between 2, 500 to 3, 000 diapers in a year?
As such, it’s important for parents to stock up on diapers. Many parents are tempted to buy in bulk, but with so many different brands out there it’s recommended that you try a few different types of diapers first to find out which ones you and your baby might prefer. After all, your child will be wearing their diapers almost 24/7 for the first few years of their lives, so it’s important to look for a diaper that they’d feel comfortable wearing.
Types of diapers
Cloth diapers, lampin, reusuable diapers… these are diapers that are designed to be washed rather than being thrown away after they’re used. Since you’re not sending them to the landfill, they’re more environmentally friendly compared to disposable diapers. In addition, they help you save money in the long run – especially if you use them for more than one child.
Apart from that, cloth diapers usually feel more comfortable for your child compared to disposable diapers. Since they’re made from natural, breathable fibers, babies who wear them are less likely to suffer from diaper rash.
On the other hand, cloth diapers also involve a lot more work since you need to wash and dry them between uses. If you’re using cloth diapers, it’s recommended to have somewhere between 20 to 30 of them so that you’ll always have some on hand. This means that cloth diapers can be rather inconvenient if you’re out and about since you’ll have to carry the dirty diapers around with you.
While perhaps not as environmentally friendly as reusable diapers, disposable diapers are popular because they can be tossed as soon as they get dirty – no need to clean up that smelly poo! Fortunately, diaper manufacturers been trying to become more environmentally friendly over the last few years.
Disposable diapers come in many different sizes, making them suitable for all stages of your baby’s life. They’re great for any parents who are traveling or on the go since you don’t need to worry about keeping or washing them afterwards. In addition, you can also find special diapers meant specifically for overnight use.
What you should look for when buying diapers
One advantage that disposable diapers have over reusable cloth diapers is that they tend to be more absorbent. A good diaper should be able to hold urine without leaking or making your baby feel uncomfortable. Try out a few brands before making a final decision on what kind of diapers to stock up since the absorbancy levels can vary from brand to brand.
It’s already been noted that your baby will be spending the vast majority of their first few years with a diaper on. While cloth diapers tend to be more comfortable, some disposable brands can feel very itchy on the inside, which can (literally) drive your baby to tears. Look for softer, more comfortable brands that your baby won’t mind wearing.
A good diaper will fit snugly enough to prevent leaking, but will not be so tight that your baby feels uncomfortable. Diapers come in a variety of sizes that are designed to accommodate babies of a particular weight range, but the exact fit can vary depending on what brand you use. You might learn that while the label says that the diaper is suitable for your child it may not be a perfect fit. Try out a few brands before deciding to buy your supplies in bulk.
Once you’ve found the diaper brand you like, here are a few simple tips to help you get the most bang out of your buck.
- Don’t bother buying too many diapers of the same size. Remember, your baby is growing every day. There’s no point wasting money on boxes of diapers if they’re going to become too small to fit in a few weeks.
- Empty that trash can regularly. After all, no one likes to deal with the bad smell! It might also be a good idea to invest in a diaper pail – they help to reduce the odor of used diapers
- Get a diaper bag. It’s always good to have a few extra diapers on hand, especially if you’re taking the baby out somewhere. There are many kinds of diaper bags out there, so look for one that works for you
