Reusable diapers are usually made of cotton fabric of the appropriate size and shape. Classic disposable diapers consist of at least three layers.
The layer adjacent to the body consists of a soft non-woven material that lets moisture inside, while it remains dry. The inner layer consists of pressed cellulose mixed with adsorbent granules.
It absorbs and retains moisture inside, turning it into a gel. Between the outer coating and the adsorbent film is attached, which protects the diaper from leaking.
In addition, the diaper has internal rezinochki on the sides, rear and bottom edge, as well as a belt adjacent to the body. The diaper is fastened on the front of the clasps.
All materials from which diapers are made are hypoallergenic and safe for the child. Still, baby’s skin contact with dry granules of the adsorbent or gel particles (this sometimes happens if the diaper has not changed for a long time and is already full) is undesirable, and getting the filler in the mouth is dangerous – it can lead to vomiting.
That is why all the layers of the diaper are securely interconnected. Opening a diaper without scissors is quite difficult, and yet you should take precautions.
Make sure that the crumb did not play with the diaper and did not take it in his mouth.
To size. When choosing a size, focus primarily on the weight of the child.
When buying, choose the most accurate size. Too big a diaper will sit loosely, too small – squeeze in the waist.
For premature babies with very small weight, you need to buy the smallest size (2-5 kg), since there are no special diapers for such children.
“Technical” characteristics are determined by the needs of the baby, which change as it grows and develops. For a newborn whose skin is extremely sensitive, the main factors are comfort and softness.
Of great importance is the quality of the inner layer of the diaper, which is in constant contact with the ass of the baby. Diapers for older children who are actively moving and starting to sit, in addition to softness and tenderness, must also have the ability to absorb quickly and easily.
Today, most manufacturers offer diapers and reusable sticky clasps. This means that if you need to undress the baby if you see that the diaper is still dry, you can safely use it again.
While a diaper with disposable clasps would have to be thrown away: when unzipped, they are easily torn. In addition, most modern diapers have an improved inner layer.
New additional layer absorbs moisture faster and in greater quantities. She does not get on the skin of the baby, even when the crumb puts pressure with its weight on the diaper.
The so-called “breathing” diapers are also produced, the outer layer of which contains microscopic pores that can pass air to the baby’s skin and allow the passage of refracted air from the diaper to the outside. In this case, moisture is safely stored in the inner layer of the diaper.
Some diapers are available in several types: for boys, for girls and universal. They differ from each other in the location of the absorbent layer. In models of diapers for girls, the absorbing adsorbent layer is located in the central part and behind, and in models for boys it is shifted to the stomach.
Today, unisex diapers are the most popular, in which the absorbing layer is evenly distributed throughout the entire absorption zone.
- Diapers should be changed regularly: after each feeding, sometimes between feedings, with each chair and always in the evening before bedtime, to prevent diaper rash.
- Do not judge diapers only by packaging, try two or three brands. Often the price – an indicator of quality. Cheap diapers of little-known brands should be left for an emergency.
- With regard to the form, manufacturers have recently increasingly become inclined to the diaper panties. Not so long ago, they were intended only for children who already walk on their own, and they only need a diaper just in case. Now, diapers, shorts are available for children from 9 months. The fact is that their groove has a cutout fitted to the baby’s movements, and they are also thinner and lighter.
