Hi, I'm a first-time mom-to-be and I'm wondering if there are any specific recommendations for diapering during different stages of my baby's development. I want to make sure that my baby is always comfortable and that I'm getting the most out of every diapering session. What are some things I should keep in mind when diapering a newborn versus an infant or a toddler? Are there any particular products or brands that I should be using or avoiding? Any tips or tricks would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
As a mom of a 15-month-old, I can share my experience with diapering during different stages. For newborns, I found that using disposable diapers with a cut-out for the umbilical cord stump were the most comfortable and practical. I also made sure to change my baby's diaper frequently to prevent diaper rash.
During infancy, I switched to using cloth diapers with inserts. This was more cost-effective in the long run and also better for the environment. I also found that using diaper liners helped with cleanup, especially when my baby started eating solid foods.
Now that my little one is in toddlerhood, I still use cloth diapers but have upgraded to a more sturdy brand that can handle a lot of movement and activity. I also make sure to use a good diaper cream at every diaper change to prevent any diaper rash.
Overall, my biggest tip would be to always stay on top of diaper changes, no matter the stage. And to not be afraid to experiment with different brands and products until you find what works best for you and your baby.
