Key Takeaways:

When we are about to become parents, many things are on our minds. Suddenly, we become pros at researching and googling everything. Everything we buy for our babies has to be the best and perfect. A few things, like burp cloths, comfortable clothes, diapers, etc., are needed in large quantities and must be chosen carefully.

When buying cloth diapers, many factors must be considered to ensure that your little one is happy, comfortable, dry, and miles away from diaper rashes. So, for all your diapering dilemmas, here is a guide to help you choose the best for your baby.

Making the First Diaper Decision

It would be best if you first decided whether to go for a disposable diaper or a reusable cloth diaper.

When to consider cloth diapers?

1. Saving Money: Cloth diapers can be cost-effective for parents, especially on a tight budget. While the initial investment might seem higher than disposable diapers, baby cloth diapers can be used multiple times, saving you money in the long run. This is particularly beneficial if you plan on using diapers for an extended period, such as until your child is around 3 years old or until they're fully potty trained.

2. Eco-Friendly: Cloth diapers are an environmentally friendly choice because they can be washed and reused multiple times. Reusable diapers can significantly reduce the amount of waste sent to landfills. This option is ideal for sustainability-conscious parents who want to minimise their ecological footprint.

3. Gentle on Skin: Reusable cloth diapers are typically made from soft, breathable materials that are gentle on a baby's delicate skin. They are less likely to contain harsh chemicals or irritants that can cause allergic reactions or skin irritation. Additionally, newborn baby diapers allow for better airflow, which can help prevent diaper rash and keep your baby's skin healthy.

When to Choose Disposable Diapers:

1. Travelling: Disposable diapers are convenient for parents who travel for an extended period and may need access to laundry facilities. They are convenient to use on the go and can be easily disposed of after use, making them a practical choice for travel. If you still want to consider newborn baby diapers, go for SuperBottoms Waterproof Diaper Bag made from waterproof or water-resistant material to keep moisture from leaking out and potentially damaging other items in your luggage.

2. Busy or Sick Caregivers: There are times when caregivers, whether parents or other family members, may be overwhelmed with other responsibilities or unwell themselves. Managing the additional laundry that cloth diapers require may be challenging in such situations. Disposable diapers offer a temporary solution, providing caregivers with a convenient and easy-to-use option until they can resume using cloth diapers.

Understanding Diaper Sizes:

The sizing of reusable diapers is sometimes more complicated to understand than decoding a cryptic message. How many cloth diapers do I need for newborns? Which size should I go for? These are some questions parents wonder about before making the diaper purchasing decision. But luckily, with cloth diapers, sizing is simpler than you might imagine.

Just like clothes, cloth diapers also have sizes. Generally, cloth diapers for newborns are sized based on the child's weight. However, cloth diapers such as SuperBottoms Newborn UNO fit from newborn to 7 KGS, and SuperBottoms Freesize UNO from 7 to 17 KGS.

Here's a size guide to estimate how many diapers you'll need

1. Newborn babies - Babies grow fast during the initial months. Thus, investing in too many diapers is not a great idea. At this age, a combination of Newborn Diapers, Dry Feel Langot, and Padded Underwear for some diaper-free time is ideal. Depending on your newborn's pee and poop pattern, you need between 8 - 12 diapers.

2. Freesize for kids up to 17 kg - 16 diapers are all you need. From 7 kg (around 6 months) to the age they are potty trained and off diapers, 16 Freesize UNO is enough.

Other Considerations Before Buying Newborn Diapers:

Other Considerations Before Buying Newborn Diapers or Infant Diapers. Before you end up spending a fortune only to realise this is not what you wanted or suits you or your baby's needs, here are a few things you should consider.

1. Features of the diaper - Once you have decided to use baby cloth diapers, you should compare the features of different options available to see which one best suits your needs and your baby's size and weight.

2. Poo and pee habits of your baby - Every baby has a unique poop and pee pattern. For example, some are heavy wetter, while some are not. Depending on their poop and pee habits, you will need to look for baby cloth diapers and Booster Pads that will last for a duration according to their pee/poo patterns.

3. Your Budget - Depending on your baby's pee/poo habits and laundry schedule, you must decide how many diapers your baby will need. Diapers don't necessarily make a hole in the pockets of parents. With the best cloth diapers in India, like SuperBottoms UNO, you only need 16 to last through your baby's diapering years.

4. Your baby's skin sensitivity - Some babies have sensitive skin and pre-existing conditions such as eczema or dermatitis. In such cases, disposable diapers loaded with harmful chemicals can aggravate the condition and cause rashes. In such a scenario, you should use CPSIA-certified baby cloth diapers such as SuperBottoms UNO Cloth Diapers.

5. Absorbance - Good newborn baby diapers would not start sagging or make the baby feel uncomfortable or wet within no time of wearing them. Look for the best cloth diapers in India with good absorbance and an inner feel dry layer that keeps the baby dry and happy.

6. Stretchability and fit - Finding the right size of cotton diapers to fit your baby is essential. But cotton diapers are adjustable and do not need to be replaced repeatedly to upgrade the size.

7. Convenience and time - Sometimes, the situation might temporarily demand a non-washable diaper. For example, if the caregiver is sick and cannot do laundry for a few days, choosing a safe and chemical-free disposable diaper might be needed.

Q1: Are cloth diapers cheaper than disposable diapers in the long run?

Ans: Yes, cloth diapers can be cheaper in the long run, especially if you reuse them for multiple children or until your child is potty trained. While the initial investment may be higher, the ongoing cost of purchasing disposable diapers increases over time.

Q2: Are cloth diapers challenging to clean?

Ans: Modern cloth diapers are designed to be easy to clean. Most cloth diapers can be washed in a washing machine with a gentle detergent and dried either in a dryer or on a clothesline. A diaper sprayer or liner can help simplify cleaning, especially for solid waste.

Q3: Do cloth diapers leak more than disposable diapers?

Ans: Cloth diapers can prevent leaks more effectively than disposable diapers when adequately fitted and changed regularly. Choosing the right size and style of cloth diaper and proper absorbency inserts can help minimise leaks.
