Nappies are a big part of any new mum’s world. So what's the low down on disposables?
Disposables are single-use nappies that you simply throw in the bin when you change your baby, then you reach for a fresh one and start again.
Disposables have come on leaps and bounds in the last few years and now many brands boast super slim designs, with impressive absorbency and leak-free qualities. What ever your baby's age, or stage, there is a nappy for you from those that fot newborn, day-old babies to pull-on toddlers nappies that help with potty training.
Designed specially for the first few weeks of your little one’s life, these nappies are slim fitting and easy to secure, even on a squirming newborn.
Most newborn nappies will have a high back, double leg cuffs and a special absorbent core to contain the soft, runny poo that’s associated with your tiny baby’s developing digestive system.
Suitable from when your baby is small through to early toddlerhood, these nappies also have impressive absorbency and leak-free qualities. Emphasis is on dryness, with most brands offering through-the-night dryness and skin protection for your little one’s bottom. Sizes are numbered and relate to your baby's weight.
Designed for older babies who are up on their feet and on the move, these nappies are still absorbent but allow for more flexibility. They also have super strong grips to keep them in place when your tot’s exploring. Manufacturer's often use 'active fit' to describe these nappies.
With similar features to a normal disposable, these nappies are kinder to the environment as they are partly made from renewable materials.
