Hello, I am in great confusion! My in-laws tell me that diapers can cause thinning of waist in babies! Is there any scientific truth or reason behind it?


Diaper wearing at most can cause diaper rashes, if they are not changed frequently. thinning of waist is something I'm listening for the first time. it's a myth, just make sure you do not make ur baby wear diapers for very long ( maybe only at night before sleeping), change them often, n give diaper free time too.

am too hearing this first time! nothing like that dear... but give baby diaper free time for his own comfort and health...

Prithvi Balaji

no such things... this is just to avoid using it. my son will be 1 soon and since his birth he is on diapers and no such thing happened neither diaper rash as u have to generously use coconut oil or vasaline Before putting on diapers and no rashes will be formed.

No dear it's a myth only but yes diaper can develop rashes if you make it kid wear all d time
