How to choose the right diaper size
Choosing the right diaper size can help you avoid leakage and skin irritation, and it may sound a lot easier than it actually is. All babies are different sizes – if your child is between two sizes, if your child is long and thin, consider the smaller size, if your child is short and thick, consider the larger size size.
But first things first: any good diaper should be extremely absorbent to keep urine and feces away from the skin and into the core of the diaper as quickly as possible to minimize the risk of irritation and diaper rash. A good diaper should also be breathable; aside from bath time and changing circumstances, your baby’s skin will be wrapped in the diaper almost 24 hours a day.
Let’s go step by step – how to choose the right size bamboo diapers for a newborn?
First-time parents often buy too many diapers out of excitement before a new family member arrives—and understandably so. But diapers can easily become too large or too small. Therefore, we recommend that you only buy a pack of diapers before your baby arrives, or better yet, try to find samples of different sizes based on your baby’s expected weight – keep in mind that the expected size and weight of your baby may be Not actually correct.
If you find a sample, you can test different sizes of diapers at the hospital, and then the father or grandparent can buy the right size before going home. Typically, newborns weighing about 7-8 pounds start out in diapers. 2 (7-13lbs), this size is usually recommended for new mothers with term babies. Diaper size 1 is suitable for weights 4.5-9 lbs.
How should diapers be worn to reduce the chance of leaking urine?
Before using a diaper, make sure the leak protector inside the diaper is upright. Sometimes you need to straighten the diaper before using it. Also, make sure to pull the leg cuffs away from the child’s legs and bottom. Bonus tip: If your child is a boy, make sure his penis is facing down before closing the diaper (this also applies to pants!). Otherwise, he may pee from the top or the side.
Place the diaper under the baby, fold the front to the bottom of the stomach and close. The diaper should fit around the waist and be relatively tight – as a rule of thumb, you can check your waist for finger room when placing the diaper.
When should I go one size up?
Are you leaking urine even though diapers should be the right size for your baby’s weight? One of the most common causes of leaks is a diaper that is too small. As mentioned, babies come in different sizes and there really is no one-size-fits-all; if you experience repeated leaks, even if the diaper size should be correct according to the chart and kilograms, try increasing the size, but the diaper should not be too loose. As with many other things in parenting, finding the right diaper and the right size is a “try-as-you-go” experience.
What should I do if the diaper leaks at night?
We always recommend using open diapers instead of pants for your baby or toddler at night as these can be adjusted to provide a tighter fit for ideal nighttime protection. However, your child may also be in between the two sizes, or your child may drink too much before bed. If your child is very thirsty at bedtime, the best thing to do may be to change diapers at night, as each diaper can only hold a certain amount of urine. You can also use a protective mattress. Disposable mattresses feature sealed edges for optimum leak protection and breathable material to minimise the risk of skin irritation. They also come with tape so you can easily attach them to the bed under the sheets.
Mattresses are also great for when your child reaches potty training age. At this point, diaper pants are a great alternative to traditional diapers, as children can pull them up and down on their own like regular underwear as they learn to use the toilet. Pants can’t be tightened with an elastic waistband like an open diaper, so it’s important to find a size that provides a comfortable fit and adequate absorption. Use the size guide on the package or try different sizes to find the right size.
Experienced parents know that it is almost impossible to avoid leaks 100% of the time. You almost always have the “in-between” moment when your child is in between two sizes, or you just put on the wrong diaper by mistake. However, if you follow these tips, you will most likely experience fewer leaks.
