The best diapers for your baby: how to choose them and the nine most valued brands

During the first three years of the baby’s life, diapers are a basic necessity, sometimes even longer depending on the child, and if we also count the night diapers.

It is estimated that a baby will need, on average, 4,860 disposable diapers until he is ready to stop using them and go to the bathroom alone. That, if we take into account that he will use eight diapers a day until four months and five a day until thirty months, although of course it is an average, since it is impossible to calculate it exactly.

We will talk about how to choose the best diaper for your baby and which are the brands most valued by parents according to their experiences, as well as the prices of each one.

How to choose the best diaper

When choosing the best diaper for the baby, comfort, absorption and a good price is the perfect formula.

First of all, the diaper must respect the baby’s delicate skin . It has to be soft, made with materials without dangerous chemical substances and have an optimal absorption of liquids for several hours, taking into account the hours of sleep. What we want is that our baby remains dry and his skin does not suffer from irritations.

Likewise, it has to be able to absorb the liquid poop of the first months.

In addition, it must be flexible and ergonomic to adapt to the baby’s body, and its movements when it begins to crawl and walk, without causing leaks or leaks. Leg elastics should fit but not squeeze, or cause friction chafing.

It must also have a strong closure that prevents the diaper from coming off when the baby moves, or from being able to take it off.

We have prepared a list of the brands most valued by parents , highlighting the advantages and disadvantages of each one. It is not a ranking, as the best diaper for some parents is not the best for others. If one child does well, another may do poorly.

One of the most transcendental decisions that are made in the incipient role of father and mother, when the baby is still in the womb, is deciding the name of your son or daughter. Trying to imagine what it will be like, discarding all those that you don't like or that remind you of someone you don't like (because let's not deny it, it's something we all do), and reaching consensus is not an easy job.
