Just like motherhood is an oxymoron most of the time, newborns are miniature oxymorons of their own. On one hand, babies are the cutest, cuddliest humans you ever did see. On the other side of the oxymoron, they’re snotty, stinky messes wreaking havoc in between diaper changes. But diaper changes don’t need to be a disaster every time. In fact, the type of diaper you use for your baby can make all the difference. Here are three factors you should consider when choosing the best diaper for your little one.
When it comes to diapers, comfort matters. Your baby deserves diapers made from only the safest and softest materials to prevent irritation. Whether you choose disposable diapers or cloth ones, look for diapers made with minimal use of chlorine, latex, perfumes and dyes to make sure your baby only wears the comfiest and safest diapers.
Additionally, not all diapers use the same design, and different designs will fit your baby in different ways. For a happier baby, choose a diaper that hugs your little one in all the right places.
Not all diapers are created equal, and some are more eco-friendly than others. When purchasing diapers for your newborn consider the environmental impact of your choice. Cloth diapers are considerably more eco-friendly because they contain a lower level of raw materials and harmful chemicals than disposable diapers. In addition, used disposable diapers fill up landfills faster and can take hundreds of years to biodegrade. You can make a big difference in small ways, so keep Mother Earth in mind when picking out diapers for your little one.
Parenthood is expensive--and diapers are no exception to these necessary financial considerations. Whether you choose cloth or disposable diapers, be sure your diaper pick is not only made with high-quality materials but is also sold at a reasonable price. Quality materials and affordable prices don’t have to be mutually exclusive. The right diaper for you and your baby is out there--we promise!
We’re warning you--it’s dirty business becoming a mom. But if there is one thing we know for sure, it’s that motherhood is more than worth it--every snotty nose and diaper change considered.
