How to choose diapers for newborns

As a rule, in order to find the best diaper for their baby, mothers try different brands, compare and opt for the most successful one in their opinion.

The size
It is important to choose the right diaper size for the newborn. He should not be small — in this case he can press, rub. If the diaper, on the contrary, is large, then even if you tighten it quite tightly with Velcro, it will fly off, leak, the baby will be clearly uncomfortable. The packages always indicate the upper and lower weight limits. Focus on them. But if, say, your baby weighs almost 5 kg, then it is better to take the size not up to 5 kg, but, for example, from 4 to 8 kg.

Absorbency
One of the main characteristics of a diaper is its absorbency and ability to retain moisture well. You can evaluate how well he copes with this task in the following way. It is necessary to pour a glass of water on the diaper, while it should be stretched and slightly tilted. Then blot the diaper with a napkin and evaluate how quickly and well it absorbed water, whether the surface remained dry.

Fullness
It is important that after absorbing moisture, which is usually converted into gel, it does not stray into lumps, but is evenly distributed throughout the diaper. To appreciate this point, shake a well-filled diaper and see if the gel has strayed into lumps.

Material
The materials from which the diapers are made should be very soft, delicate, the parts of the diaper adjacent to the skin of the newborn should be made of natural materials, not to cause allergies. Remember that the skin of the baby is very sensitive, and any gross effect is not acceptable.

Back
Pay attention to the back — it should be quite high so that the diaper does not leak.

Price
An important point, since there are a lot of diapers needed, they are spent quickly, spending on them as a result is very noticeable. If the budget does not allow you to use premium diapers, choose more budget options. Now there are a lot of manufacturers of these products on the market, the competition is great, and, indeed, there are many options of very good quality at a relatively inexpensive price. You can also save by purchasing large packages, so it’s cheaper.
