How to Purchase The Right Baby Nappies?

Selecting the appropriate nappy for your baby is akin to solving a puzzle where every piece contributes to a harmonious picture. Let's delve into some essential considerations that can guide you towards the best choice for your baby's unique needs.

• Material: The fabric that comes in contact with your baby's skin should be soft, gentle and hypoallergenic to avoid causing irritation. Nappies made from natural fibres or boasting a soft, cotton-like cover can provide a gentle touch against your little one's delicate skin.

• Size and fit: A snug, but not too tight, fit is vital for preventing leaks and ensuring your baby's comfort. Nappy sizes are usually based on weight ranges, so having an idea of your baby's current weight will assist in selecting the right size. Look for nappies that offer flexible waistbands and leg cuffs that adapt to your baby's movements without constriction.

• Leak protection: On the note of leg cuffs, always ensure these fit snugly but comfortably around your baby's thighs. They guard against leaks, particularly from liquid stools in newborns or when the nappy is heavily saturated. Leg cuffs are also termed as ruffles or frills. Trying out different brands and models may help you find the best fit for your baby.

• Absorbency: Your baby's nappy should provide excellent absorbency to keep your little one's skin dry and comfortable. Check for nappies with multi-layer absorbency cores or those containing super absorbent polymers, which lock away wetness from the baby's skin efficiently.

• Wetness Indicator: A wetness indicator, usually a line or a pattern that changes colour when the nappy is wet, can be a helpful feature for parents, particularly for newborns. It can help you gauge when it's time to change the nappy, ensuring your baby remains in a clean and comfortable nappy as much as possible.

• Breathability: Breathable nappies allow air to circulate, reducing the risk of overheating and helping to prevent diaper rash and baby eczema, also referred to as diaper dermatitis. This is especially so if bub is clad in newborn pyjamas or sleepsuits. Look for nappies with breathable outer covers or those marked as "air-dry."

• Eco-friendliness: If environmental impact is a key consideration for you, opt for eco-friendly baby nappies. These are typically made from sustainable or biodegradable materials and are designed to have a lesser impact on the environment. Alternatively, you may choose cloth diapers over disposable ones.

At Mothercare Singapore, we offer a variety of nappies that cater to these factors, allowing you to select the most suitable ones for your baby. From newborn baby nappies to those designed for growing infants, our online range meets diverse needs and preferences.

Frequently Asked Questions About Baby Nappies

How many nappies does a baby need?

On average, a newborn baby might use up to 8 to 10 disposable nappies a day. As they grow older, the number may decrease to around 6 to 8 nappies daily. It's always a good idea to have a few extra on hand for emergencies, such as when bub is unwell. Remember, changing nappies frequently is key to maintaining good nappy hygiene, which helps prevent nappy rash and keeps your baby comfortable.

What is the difference between a nappy and a diaper?

Nappy and diaper refer to the same item – a type of underwear that allows the baby to defecate or urinate without soiling their outer clothing. The term "nappy" is commonly used in the UK and Singapore, while "diaper" is more commonly used in the US.

How long do babies wear newborn nappies?

Newborn nappies, including cloth diapers and disposables, usually fit babies up to about 4 to 5 kg. Once your baby exceeds this weight or if you notice the nappies are fitting too snugly, it's time to move up to the next size. This usually happens when your baby is between 1 to 3 months old, but it can vary as every baby grows at their own pace.
