Being a first time mom brings with it a lot of joy as well as anxiety. Motherhood is the greatest as well as the hardest thing. Mom wants to do the best for her child.
We come across questions regarding the usage of diaper everyday and I want to share few of my tried and tested hacks.
My child was born in winters and was a premie with several complications... I was strictly told to prevent him from catching cough and cold. So cloth nappies was not at in scene for me. So, I tried few diapers, nappies and found out the best way to make my baby wear diaper all day.
So, at first let me tell you about different types of diapers I tried.
1- cloth nappies(langot) which we use regularly at home.
2- Disposable diapers
3- Cloth diapers( some of the well known brands here are Superbottoms and bum berry)
4- Nappy pads which can be sticked to normal cloth nappy and used.
The question which comes almost everyday is- Can we make our baby wear diaper 24 hours?
I would say yes you can if you take proper care else baby will have to suffer. In the beginning it's very tiring for moms so, what can you do is use cloth diapers or nappy pads during the day time. And disposable diaper during the night time.; This way there will be very less chance of rashes and baby will remain dry the whole day.
What are the precautions to be taken?
1- No matter you use a nappy pad or cloth diaper or disposable one...change diaper every 4 hours and just after the baby poops.
2- You can apply a thin film of petroleum jelly while changing diapers to be on the safer side.
3- Give diaper free time too. What I follow is I give diaper free time after massage in the morning till the baby baths. And during the evening too after massage. Use a changing sheet to protect your bed from getting wet and you are done.
4- Always wash hands after you change the diapers to prevent infections.
5- If you have a baby boy there can be chances of leaking while using nappy pads or cloth diapers. So better to adjust the boy thing when you make the baby wear diaper. #HappyDiapering .
