The most important newborn equipment is newborn diapers. The use of diapers must also be considered like choosing baby clothes. Because diapers will be worn by newborn babies every day, it means that the little one's sensitive skin will always be in contact with diapers. So, parents must be careful in choosing newborn diapers.
Many brands of newborn diapers are now sold in the market by offering a variety of features according to the needs of your little one. But choosing the right diaper is not an easy thing. So it is normal if not a few mothers try out various brands to find the right one for their little one. There are two types of diapers, namely disposable diapers and cloth diapers. Disposable diapers are more practical because they can be thrown away after use. While cloth diapers are more economical because they can be washed and reused. So it is highly recommended to choose diapers according to your preferences and needs.
Types and Sizes of Diapers Suitable for Newborns
In addition to the type of diaper, the thing to consider in choosing newborn diapers is the size of the diaper. Choosing baby diapers should be adjusted according to the baby's weight not age so that it is comfortable when used. Newborn weight itself is categorized into 3, namely low birth weight less than 2500 grams, normal birth weight around 2500-3999 grams and newborn weight more than 4000 grams. While the size of newborn diapers is generally NB (newborn) or S.
As long as the baby uses diapers, moms and dads should not forget to regularly change diapers every 2-3 hours or more often if needed. Make sure to clean the diaper area using soft wipes such as MAKUKU Air Tissue or a damp cloth before putting on a new diaper. Avoid leaving the baby in a wet or dirty diaper for too long, as this can cause irritation to the baby's skin.
This can also help avoid diaper rash. Some babies may develop diaper rash. To prevent this, make sure the baby's skin is kept dry and clean. Use a baby skin protection cream or ointment to help reduce friction and skin irritation from diapers. Also, let the baby lie naked or with the diaper open for a few moments each day so that the skin can "breathe".
MAKUKU Newborn, Recommended Diapers for Newborns
To reduce the risk of diaper rash, the recommended newborn diaper is MAKUKU SAP Diapers Comfort Fit. MAKUKU SAP Diapers Comfort Fit is designed using SAP (Super Absorbent Polymer) core structure technology which is super thin, super absorbent and anti-clump. Although newborn babies have not moved much, but in order to support their comfort while using diapers, thin baby diapers are needed. The frequency of newborn urination is arguably quite frequent. So it requires diapers with fast and even absorption to keep the diaper surface dry and reduce the risk of diaper rash.
Another advantage of MAKUKU newborn is its belly button u-shape feature. Belly button u-shape is a U-shaped curve on the front waist band. The function of this feature can help avoid friction between the diaper and the newborn's umbilical cord that has not been released. Please note that if the diaper rubs too often with the baby's umbilical cord, it can cause irritation and even infection in the area around the skin. The belly button u-shape feature on MAKUKU newborn can help make it easier for parents to care for the baby's umbilical cord. Of course, there is no need to bother folding or rolling the front of the baby diaper.
Using diapers may feel unfamiliar to newborns, so keep an eye out for signs of discomfort. If the baby feels more fussy, there may be something that makes him uncomfortable such as a full diaper, a lumpy diaper or a diaper rash caused by the type of diaper used. This means that moms and dads may need to try a different type of diaper or consult a pediatrician.
It is important to remember that baby care is individualized, and each baby may have different preferences or needs. Always prioritize newborn comfort, hygiene and skin health when choosing and using diapers. (Aq/MKK)
