Every woman with the appearance of a baby in her life is given a thought on how to create maximum comfort for this tiny little man. In these thoughts, the choice of personal hygiene of the child also plays a significant role. I also doubted for a long time: do I use diapers or suffer from gauze diapers?
But from my own experience, I want to say that it makes no sense to spend sleepless nights, a lot of hours doing laundry with Marlechek (since it is better to wash a baby at first manually). Today, the arsenal of diapers of various brands is very diverse. And each mother will be able to find the brand and type of diaper, which is ideal for her baby.
It is difficult to use marlechki at this stage, because a baby often pees and poops quite fluidly. And the baby needs a cheerful and rested mother, and not exhausted by endless washes.
In the hospital, as a rule, diapers for newborns (1 or 2 sizes) are taken, such models often have a special navel cutout. It is important that the diaper fits snugly to the body, otherwise not to avoid minor troubles. But also strongly to compress the gum should not, the air must circulate.
If your child responds normally to diapers, his skin is clean and there is no diaper rash, then you can safely give them preference and enjoy life. It happens that reddenings appear on certain brands of diapers or fragrances used in them. Then you just need to change the view, well, in the afternoon, perhaps, to look like with or without marleks. This should be done so that the priest breathes and dries a little in order to avoid new irritations.
When I used gauze diapers, and it was in summer, the main rule here is to change gauzes often. You should not allow your child to sit for a long time in wet gauze diapers, as this may also contribute to the appearance of irritation and hypothermia baby.
After changing the diaper (whether it is a diaper or gauze), you need to undermine the child using baby soap, cream – as needed. And for some time, leave it naked, so that the skin is well dried and rested from the diapers. If, nevertheless, irritation already exists, then personally my son was well helped by such treatment: ointment Sudocrem or Bepanten and as much as possible air baths.
If you do not care about wet puddles on the floor, then you can generally leave your baby naked for the whole day. This prospect did not please me, so I could send him to walk naked only to our yard (we have a private house). And at home I tried to wear at least panties.
While the son did not walk and lay quietly, I laid the disposable diaper diaper in the stroller or his crib, leaving him naked. It was a real salvation on hot summer days. After all, it is terrible to imagine how hard it is for them in the heat, being packed in diapers!
I personally liked the use of diapers of such brands as Pampers, Haggis and Libero. In each of these brands there are budget models and more expensive ones. My advice to you is not to save on them, it is better to immediately buy diapers from more natural materials than to treat the rashes.
No one can say for sure what is best for a child: diapers, gauze, or remain naked. At this point, every mother should decide for herself, focusing on her child and on the sensitivity of his skin, as well as her financial capabilities.
I can only say that in the presence of funds you can now find any diapers, even for the most capricious skin. If you follow the rules for changing diapers, properly hygiene your baby and often arrange air baths for him, then there will be no problems with using diapers. And the time spent washing endless ladies, it is better to take to relax with your favorite book and a cup of fragrant tea in their hands.
