The Pampers brand is an all-time fave among parents all over the globe. It’s a familiar name and is known for the comfort it offers. The Swaddlers, just like other Pampers diapers, come with a wetness indicator that lets you know when your child may need a change.

  • The material is soft and very comfortable to the skin; it also fits well even to smaller babies.

The History Of Diapers

It was only in the 40s that real disposable diapers became available on the market, and boy, what a luxury they were that only a select few could afford back in the days. And yes, that means that people had to deal with baby poop in other ways for thousands of years prior to the invention of the modern-day nappy.

The revolution was started in 1946 by Marion Donovan, a housewife and a mother of two, who, after being frustrated by the monotonous task of changing her younger child’s soiled cloth diaper, sewed their shower curtain at home to come up with a waterproof diaper cover. A year later, another woman, this time a Scottish housewife named Valerie Hunter Gordon, began developing a two-part disposable nappy made from old parachutes and cotton wool.

Unlike Donovan, however, Gordon was able to have her invention patented successfully, and the rest was history. Throughout the 80s and 90s, the design of diapers continued to improve, becoming softer and lighter and integrating more absorbent fabric and attractive designs.

Here’s a short video describing the history of disposable diapers, as well as how they are made:

Things To Consider In Choosing A Disposable Diaper

Now that we know how disposable diapers came to be, it’s time for us to look at some of the things to consider before deciding which brand to pick.

  • Avoid choosing a brand just because it’s popular or only because your friends are using it, too. Think about your baby’s needs and yours. What’s your bottom line for picking a particular brand over others? Is it health? Is it the environment? Is it the cost?
  • Do not buy in bulk until you have tried and tested a particular diaper for a period and are satisfied with its fit and performance.
  • Wait to purchase your baby’s first diapers until you have known his weight. In most cases, you’ll only need a few packages for weights up to 10 lb.
  • If you’re ordering diapers online, consider the delivery schedule. Time it so that it arrives at your doorstep even before you get home from the hospital.
  • Absorbency is the most crucial trait of any diaper. Choose a brand that exceeds in this particular area.
  • Find a diaper with not only outstanding absorbency, but also material that’s soft on baby’s skin.
  • The securing tabs should have rounded and soft corners and need to stay in place despite your baby’s movements.
  • Find a good fit for your child. You may or may not perfect this the first time, but that’s okay. Not all diapers are equal in fit, even if they belong in the same weight category. This is usually because of the material the diaper is made of. Softer diapers conform to the body nicely, while stiffer diapers leave gaps that result to leaks.
  • Consider a diaper that’s chlorine-free, dye-free, and fragrance-free. The more chemical found in the diaper, the higher the chances your baby may develop rashes, especially if he has allergies or sensitivities.
  • Pricing does not always influence the quality of a diaper. It’s possible to get a box of environmentally friendly diapers for the same price as regular diapers.
