Free Advice Before Buying Baby Diapers

Oct 18,2022 | Acebabe

 Free advice before purchasing baby diapers could be very useful, which can save your time and money at the same time. There are so many diaper brands, so many novice parents are blind when it comes to buying the right diapers.

Diapers are for baby's close-fitting use. Improper diapers may cause urine leakage or damage to the baby's skin. In severe cases, it may cause various diseases such as diaper rash. Therefore, fathers and mothers should choose carefully before purchasing diapers. What aspects should you pay attention to? You will get some useful tips after reading the whole blog. 

How much do you know about baby diapers?

The core and key technology of diapers is "core body". From the technical level, the diaper core has experienced three revolutions so far. We won't do too much description about traditional diapers here, this article will focus on modern diapers. 

Product Structure Schematic Diagram

The general structure of the diaper is shown in the figure above. How do these parts work? I am listing their main functions.

Dry Surface (PLA Spunlace): First intake and skin contact & Separate body from wet fluff pad. Contribution to dryness and softness.

Flap Elastic: Urine stopper on both sides for side leakage protection.

Breathable Film: Relate to outer dampness and gender specific graphic.

Hoop Loop: Fastening board.

Non-woven outer layer: Soft and cloth-like feel.

Barrier Sheet: Wrap absorbent core fully to prevent SAM/Fluff migration to liner and relate fluff pad integrity by helping less fluff bunching.

Absorbent Core: Contribute overall core flexibility by SAP ratio SAM.

Knowing the structure and principle of diapers which helps you choose diapers better. From the above-mentioned principles of diaper construction, we can see several factors that affect diapers—material, softness, air permeability, water absorption, absorbent core, elastic waist, etc.

How to choose the safe and soft diapers?

Since baby's skin is delicate and sensitive, the material of the diaper is crucial. 

Now the most materials used for the surface layer of diapers on the market are non-woven fabrics, and the most commonly used are hot air non-woven fabrics and spunbond non-woven fabrics, among which hot air non-woven fabrics have better performance. Breathable non-woven fabrics can improve the air permeability inside the diapers. Timely discharge moisture and heat, effectively reduce the incidence of eczema, soft and comfortable. There is no doubt that hot air non-woven fabrics are a good choice. 

How to judge the breathability of diapers?

The breathability of diapers determines whether the baby will suffocate red ass when wearing it.

Many new parents are worried that the diapers are too thick and the breathability of the diapers is not good. In fact, The thickness of the diaper does not determine its breathability, but only determines the manufacturing cost and the comfort of the baby.

The breathability of diapers should be judged according to the bottom film, and good diapers will use breathable mulch. There are nano-breathing holes on the top, which can breathe, but not leak urine. There are too many nano-ventilation holes, and the outer layer of the diaper will be relatively damp, because after the baby urinates, too much hot and humid air will be discharged, and the non-woven surface layer on the surface will act as a barrier.

What kind of diaper absorbs more urine?

There is a certain relationship between the absorbability of diapers and the thickness of diapers. Under normal circumstances, thinner diapers can absorb urine about 3-4 times, that is, the baby urinates three or four times. After about 2-3 hours of use, you need to change the diaper. Therefore, we recommend using thinner diapers during the day and thicker diapers at night, which can reduce the frequency of changing diapers at night. At present, polymer core diapers such as Japan's Sumitomo and Sanya can expand to 60 times their own volume after absorbing urine, making the diapers thinner and absorbing urine. As the saying goes, you get what you pay for, and polymer core diapers are more expensive than regular core diapers. 

How to Select a Fit Size Diapers?

Diaper size is only a very important issue. If the diaper is too large, side leakage will occur, and if the diaper is too small, there will be streaks on the baby's thigh. The size of the diaper should be selected according to the baby's weight, waist and leg circumference. I will not explain in detail. You can read the previous article on how to choose diapers. Otherwise, pay attention to the waistline of the diaper. The elastic waistline will make the diaper closer to the baby and prevent back leakage.
