It is not easy to decide whether to use cloth or Disposable Baby Diapers, as they both have their own advantages and disadvantages. However, you can decide yourself once you see what both types are offering. Here are some pros and cons of cloth diapers vs disposable diapers.
A diaper is one of the most important essentials for a baby. There are different varieties to choose from and you may have to do a bit of trial and error before you round up on the one suitable for your little one. Surveys show that about 80% of parents prefer disposable diapers owing to the huge convenience.
Choosing the best diaper for your baby
As with many baby items, you may want to buy a few different diaper brands at first to see which work best for your cutie. Once you know your favorite, consider signing up for a subscription delivery service to take advantage of the substantial discounts they offer.
Here are a few additional factors to consider when shopping for baby diapers:
- Reusable and adjustable tabs: These are great when you’re trying to quickly peek to see if the baby is wet. They can also help you get the best fit.
- Wetness indicator: These are lines that change colors when the baby is wet. They’re handy to have, especially in those first few weeks when you’re still learning baby’s cues.
- Pocketed waistband: These pockets on the back panel of the diaper help keep poop contained. If you routinely have issues with blowouts, they can be a lifesaver.
- Fragrance: As mentioned above, a light scent can help mask unpleasant smells, though some parents would rather go without it.
- Impact on the environment: Eco-minded parents may choose a diaper made in the most earth-friendly way possible.
- Diaper size: Correct diaper fit is important for baby’s comfort — too tight, and the elasticized leg openings can irritate her skin, but one that’s too large can lead to leaks. Always follow the size guidelines printed on the diaper packaging.
The benefits of baby diapers:
Parents are using Disposable Baby Diapers every day all over the world. Since these Disposable Baby Diapers were invented in the 1930s, they have constantly improved. Long gone are the days of plastic outer pants, ill-fitting terry cloth inners, and constantly wet skin for babies and infants. Today’s BonBon disposable diapers are light, compact, very absorbent, prevent leaks, and easy to use.
For babies and toddlers this means they:
Are comfortable to wear due to the softness, lightness, and ‘breathability’ of the materials used.
Keep the skin drier and, as a result, healthier. Skin and infant health medical experts have confirmed these benefitsSee report on skin health and hygiene benefits of absorbent hygiene products and wipes.
Are better at reducing the transmission of infectious diseases as fecal containment is reduced so that there is less risk of the spread of bacteria.
Disposable baby diapers are the definition of convenience. Not only do they go on easily, but as long as you’re using the right size, they’re pretty much guaranteed to fit, which means fewer leaks. Today’s diapers are so absorbent that babies can often sleep through the night even when they’re wet without feeling discomfort. They’re also easy to use when traveling since you just toss them when you’re done.
That leads us to one of the biggest cons, the aforementioned space disposable diapers take up in landfills. They also cost more over time than cloth diapers.
How to Choose the Best Diaper for Your Baby?
The following are the important aspects you have to take care of while choosing a diaper for your lovely newborn:
- Type of Diapers:
- Tape Diapers
Suitable for newborns whose umbilical cords have not fallen off yet since parents can adjust the tape under the baby’s navel conveniently as desired. At present, the design of diapers for newborns includes a soft-touch surface suitable for the sensitive skin of the baby, as well as a special curved waistband design. Parents can be confident that the baby’s navel area is well protected from friction.
For babies who are not very active yet, mostly breastfeeding and sleeping, the use of tape disposable diapers is easier because they cannot sit or stand. It is ideal to put the diaper on as the baby lies on its back and lift up the baby’s bottom.
It is suitable for babies up to 6 months because during this age, especially during the 1st month, the baby will often defecate 2-3 times a day or several times a day. Babies defecate very often in the first 2-3 weeks after birth, and will gradually reduce the frequency of defecation when they reach the age of 3 months. Therefore, the use of tape diapers is appropriate.
- Pant Diapers
When the baby is 6 months old, they often flip over onto their stomachs, rolling and crawling. They do not stay still at all 😂. This means that it becomes difficult to put them on their backs to put on tape diapers. So, during this age, putting on and removing pant diapers is easier and more convenient. You can put your baby in any position and it does not require the baby’s legs to be pulled up.
Pant diapers have an elastic band around the waist and around the legs, which are soft and flexible. Therefore, they fit comfortably with the baby’s waist. Without a tape strip, parents do not have to worry that the little ones will remove the tape due to their movements. Pant diapers ensure that the baby can move with agility, ready to learn new things. There is no need to worry about leakage.
In case you have to bring your little ones along to activities outside the home, finding the right place for changing diapers may not be easy. Pant diapers are easy to put on and take off. It is a good choice for when you are on the go.
The inside of the diaper is filled with Super Absorbent Polymers(SAP) and fluff made from wood pulp and wheat/corn materials. The fluff distributes the fluid throughout the diaper and the SAP absorbs the fluid and locks it away. Every BonBon diaper has SAP. In terms of absorption, BonBon diapers at par with its market competitions.
The diaper cover’s weight suggests the proper size for a better fit, you should also consider your baby’s body shape.
For instance, Medium size diapers are for babies weighing between 7-12 Kg. Another point to note is if you find a diaper leaking, first check whether the diaper is drenched. If not, ensure that it is properly worn. If you again find it leaking, you might have to go a size down as the present size doesn’t fit snuggly. More than often diaper leak happens because the diaper worn is oversized and not undersized.
Diapers are slowly becoming a necessity for babies and hence BonBon has come up with BonBon Disposable baby diaper Standard. It is the most affordable diaper variant in the market. It has up to 12 hours of absorption for your child’s comfortable and peaceful sleep. It has an Easy to Wear and Remove Function in order to keep your child cheerful and happy all the time, in turn keeping you happy.
