“Congratulations on your new Baby!Hey, which diaper are you using?”
A common question with hundreds of opinions.
There are more than 30 different brands of diapers, from store brands to compostable diapers – and that doesn't even delve into cloth diapers. For each of my children, I did my research. Surely there had to be one “best” diaper, right? Wrong. There are people that love one brand while others hate it. What worked for my first leaked on my second. On website after website, forum and after forum, the consensus always ended up being “trial and error” And the “best diaper” for one mom’s ecological priorities may not be the “best diaper” for another mom’s economical priorities. The solution is a diaper variety pack, where there would be more trial, less error.
So, how do you find the diaper that not only fits your baby but also your lifestyle? There are a lot of things to consider:
• Material – How does the diaper feel? How breathable is it? Some are soft and cloth-like, others feel like a paper bag or feel and sound like plastic.
• Leak Protection – All diapers claim to have leak protection, but how well? How does the diaper fit around Baby’s waist and legs? Are you finding yourself changing outfits as often as you change diapers?
• Cost – Diapers range from $0.12-$0.38 per diaper, depending on quantity, size, etc. A newborn may go through 140+ diapers in just the first two weeks – worth it for the right diaper, but a huge waste for the wrong ones!
• Ingredients – Some diapers contain chlorine, perfume, phthalates, lotions, latex, optical brighteners, and/or PVC, while others are compostable, contain renewable materials, or are plastic free. Some chemicals may cause rashes on Baby’s sensitive skin.
I could go on and on with features and options each brand boasts, but none of it matters unless it fits. It needs to fit My unique baby and fit MY individual priorities. Diaper Variety packs allow anyone to trial a variety of diaper brands for the cost of a single pack of diapers.
