Diapers are something that your baby requires and should be on your checklist because managing and cleaning their urine and poop is a major worry when you have a newborn at home.

As the first mom, you'll surely experience the anxiety of waking up late and discovering your baby is in his or her last diaper. A baby can wet up to ten diapers every day, thus you may quickly run out of diapers.

As a result, you must always run to a local store to restock your stock. This hassle is not when you are using cloth diapers for your baby as these can last about 10-12 hrs for most average to heavy wetting babies when used along with the booster pad giving the new mom all the comfort she deserves post-pregnancy.

Getting Started with Cloth Diapers

Cloth diapers are a great replacement for modern disposable diapers in terms of function. Baby cloth diapers have an advantage over disposable diapers as they are completely washable and thus reusable.

You will not be sending hundreds, if not thousands, of diapers to landfills, which would be harmful to the environment. Cloth diapers have a significant financial benefit for families. An initial investment of 10 to 20 diapers and a few thousand rupees will last you for the duration of your baby's diapering.

Not only that, but once you've finished cloth diapering, you can save them for the next baby or give them to friends who have a baby to the diaper. Cloth diapers can even be given to other families, allowing you to recoup some of your initial investment.



How Do Cloth Diapers Work

Cloth diapers are entirely made of cloth, which provides absorbency as well as waterproofing. Reusable diapers have an absorbent core made of fibers like microfiber, organic cotton, and bamboo.

These fibers can hold a significant amount of liquid, allowing for multiple 'pee' sessions. As a result, unlike traditional langots or nappies, you do not need to change them frequently.

SuperBottoms free size UNO is made of organic cotton. It is soft and gentle on your baby's skin. When used in combination with the booster pad, its waterproof outer layer allows the diaper to last 10-12 hours for most average to heavy-wetting babies. If your baby is a heavy wetter, you can add a very heavy wetter booster pad for extra absorption.

Things To Consider Before Buying Cloth Diapers for Baby in India

Many new parents in India are making conscious decisions for their babies and the environment, such as switching from disposable diapers to cloth diapers. But how many of us here are still undecided about which one to choose?

A good starting point, however, is to understand the various types of cloth diapers that are available in the market, as well as the things to consider before buying baby diapers in India.

1. Maintain a Stash
Washing and caring for cloth diapers may appear to be difficult for a new parent, but we assure you that it is simply a matter of getting used to it.

Soiled cloth diapers for baby should be rinsed to remove any urine/poop deposits and stored (until laundry day) in a cool, dry place away from heat and moisture. A damp cloth can encourage the growth of fungus, which can damage cloth diapers. Click here for some cloth diaper-washing tips.

Consider washing the free-size UNO with SuperBottoms cloth diaper detergent, which allows you to give a diaper machine and hand washes, making the time-consuming process of washing a diaper seem like a piece of cake.

2. Diaper Free Times
One of the major advantages of cloth diapers is that babies understand the concept of wetness, and when they are ready to hold pee and communicate the urge, they know it faster and better than disposable diapers.

Allow the child diaper-free time and allow them to be free in the comfy baby langot which keeps the child dry and also helps them with their potty training process.

However it will take some time and work, but a cloth-diaper-wearing child will usually understand the process of potty training sooner than a disposable-diaper-wearing child (in most cases.)



3. Don’t use Fabric Softeners
Cloth diapers and fabric softeners do not mix. These fabric softeners may shorten the life of the diaper. Fabric softeners should be avoided if you want to extend the life of your baby diapers.

4. Consider Fabric Lining
Babies have sensitive skin that needs a gentle touch. When purchasing a diaper, the fabric and lining are important factors to consider.
Cloth diapers are lightweight and breathable. It allows air to pass through to your baby's skin, preventing irritation, rashes, and infections.

5. Number of Baby Diapers
It all depends on whether you buy fixed-size washable diapers or ones with adjustable straps. With fixed sizes, it's best to buy 12-16 at a time because you'll need larger-sized cloth diapers every few months, just like SuperBottoms free size UNO, which grows with your baby, so don't stock up on one size.

However, with adjustable cloth diapers, you can buy 5 or 6 pairs at a time and gradually adjust the size of the waistband, saving money on diapers.

You can even opt for diaper pants for your baby while providing them some diaper-free time. It includes pajama and padded underwear and can hold up to one pee.



KEY TAKEAWAYS

1. Why Cloth Diapers: A newborn baby requires more diapers than an older baby. As a result, if you continue to use cloth diapers, you could end up saving a lot of money.
2. Gentle on Skin: Cloth diapers are extremely gentle on a baby's skin in India, regardless of the weather.
3. The Right Material: Cloth diapers include non-natural components that improve overall functionality, such as velcro, snap buttons, and a waterproofing polyurethane layer.
