Myths and truth about diapers

Myth: Diapers provoke diaper rash and irritation.

Our grandmothers are best aware of these manifestations – in the days of gauze triangles, this problem was very common. This is because it was not always possible to change the tissue device in time, so the skin of the toddler got inflamed with depressing periodicity. But even now, with the advent of diapers, babies are not insured against diaper rash and irritation.

First, modern models have a limited service life and they also need to be changed on time. Secondly, the composition of some diapers include fragrances that can cause irritation.

In the latter case, simply select another manufacturer.

Myth: Diapers hinder the proper development of hip joints.

In fact, everything is exactly the opposite: the position of the hips in diapers is very physiological for babies, but only if the model is matched in size.

Myth: Diapers increase the risk of infertility in boys.

The conventional wisdom that, due to overheating of the genital organs (figuratively speaking, due to the “greenhouse effect” of the diaper), the activity of spermatozoa decreases, in this case it is groundless. In infancy, male sex cells are not formed.

The choice of the diaper depends on the weight of the baby. In total there are 5 sizes: for newborns (about 3.5 kg), S (up to 5 kg), M (up to 7 kg), L (up to 9 kg) and super L (from 9 kg). Reputable manufacturers also take into account the stage of development of the child.

So, for newborns, they came up with models of more dense tissues that support well the immature muscles. For the crumbs who learn to sit, diapers with high waists are designed. “Straight-fitting” kids are offered models of softer materials, with a low waist and elastic band (velcro will quickly become unusable).

Cosmetics with diapers

Diaper rash and irritation on the skin of a child is easier to prevent than to cure. First, the baby’s ass is cleaned with wet wipes with plant extracts and without the addition of alcohol, which dries the skin.

Then powder is applied. The “right” powder should be distributed evenly, without forming lumps – this is a sign of good quality. At the last stage, use a protective cream.

It eliminates the effects of caustic components of urine and feces, if the overflowing diaper does not succeed in changing in time. Apply the product in two ways: either on the skin, paying attention to the problem areas and inguinal region, or directly on the diaper, or rather on those parts of it that fit snugly to the body.

Less and less

Up to 3 months, until the baby’s skin is completely delicate and quickly inflamed, any diapers should be changed in 3-4 hours regardless of the degree of their filling. Later, the interval increases to 5-6 hours.

And only after six months is allowed to wait for the overflow of the old diaper, and only then put on a fresh one.

If the crumb is constantly in the diaper, you can miss the moment, suitable for training to the pot. To avoid this, from one and a half years should wear a “device” only for walks, and at home do without insurance.

Then the useful skill will be mastered without problems.
