Buying The Best Diapers For Your Baby

1) Get the size right

Before you get to the brands, you need to know which diaper size is best for your child or toddler.  Diapers come in different sizes from 0 to 6, and each brand will offer some features. Here are some key differentiation:

  • Newborn diapers: For babies that still have their umbilical stumps, look for diapers that fold down so the waistband that  the diaper doesn’t irritate the wound.
  • Overnight diapers: These are extra-absorbent diapers that last up to 12 hours at a time, reducing the need for night-time changes.
  • Diapers for sensitive skin: For babies who break out with nappy rash easily, you may need to buy diapers for sensitive skin, such as the Japanese GOO or Mamypoko diapers.
  • Pull-up pants: For older babies, this is the diaper you can use to start potty-training.


2) Spot Diaper problems

In assessing the best diaper brand, you should look out for the following problems:

  • If the diaper leave red marks or heat rash along legs or waist, that means your baby is not comfortable in it.
  • Leaks of urine or poo, there is obviously a lack of leak prevention design.
  • If the diaper needs frequent changing, more than what you deem necessary, then the diaper has some absorbency issue.
  • If you child is constantly having nappy rash, that means your child could be sensitive to the pampers or it doesn’t give room for the pores to breath.

If you experience any of the above, you should try changing to a different brand.


3) Do NOT buy in bulk

Many parents tend to buy things in bulk to save some cash. However, some things are not worth the economies of scale. Newborn babies grow very fast, so don’t buy too many diapers in small sizes. A single pack for size 0 is enough for many babies before they switch to size 1. Size 2 or M size is when you can start buying in bulk for savings.

5 Things you never knew about your baby!

By Adeline Woo

As parents, sometimes we tend to overlook the simplest things in life. When we have a new born, one would think we pay more attention to our child but here are 5 things that we never realize!


1) Babies take more breaths than adults. 

If any parent out there realized this, kudos to you! However, there is no need to worry because according to Orgeon’s Health and Science University, a baby’s normal breathing rate is about 40 times per a minute while us adults only breath between 12 and 20 times a minute.


2) Newborn Babies don’t shed tears.

You’d probably go, what nonsense is this? But it’s true! If you observe a newborn closely when he/she is crying, you’d realize that there are no tears. Why? Although the tear ducts and glands are working, they produce just enough tears to lubricate and protect your baby’s eyes. But you’ll soon realize that those teardrops will start to flow between 1 and 3 months.

3) Babies can Crawl as soon as they are Born. 

We’re not pulling your leg here! In 1987 the Karolinska Institute in Sweden compiled the findings of  their study on the “Breast Crawl”. When the baby was dried and laid on a mother’s chest immediately after birth they were able to find her chest for feeding within an hour. Pretty impressive don’t you think?

4) Newborns Recognize Mom’s Voice At Birth

I’m sure every mum is pleasantly pleased upon reading this! When a baby is born, their hearing isn’t a 100% up to par yet because the middle ear is still full of fluid which tends to impair the hearing somewhat. The one sound they are able to recognize is the sound of mama’s voice. They respond to this sound above all others.

5) All Newborns Are Nearsighted 

This might explain why all newborn babies like to grab things and bring it up to their face! Newborn babies are very nearsighted and their vision only allows them to see people and objects at their clearest when they are within 8 to 12 inches away.
