When it comes to baby supplies, there are items which make your life easier, there are items which are nice to have and then there are some items which are absolute essentials. And diapers without a question fall into the third category.
They are something that your baby needs every single day and needs them in plenty!
While one may be familiar with lots of well known and popular diaper brands like Huggies, Pampers, Mamy Poko Pants etc. available in our country, there are many new and cool brands that have come up in the recent years who are offering some amazing products.
But before we get into the brands and the diapers that you can shop from them, let’s discuss the different types of baby diapers available in the market today. It is important to know which kind would suit your lifestyle and your baby’s needs better.
Cloth diapers are great for babies as they are more breathable and softer than disposable ones. These are eco-friendly and very cost saving in the long run as they can be reused time and again. Also most come with adjustable sizing options which means the diaper can expand to fit your growing baby upto a certain age. The only thing you’ll have to take care of is the little bit of extra laundry that comes with using cloth diapers. But it’s a small price to pay for saving the environment.
These are the most common and easy to use diapers out there. Once you know the correct size to use for your baby, you are all set as these will fit well and are pretty much leakproof. There are many kinds of disposable diapers available today - ones with fragrance, some have wetness indicators while others have pocketed waistbands etc. These are super convenient to use while travelling especially. The major disadvantages of these disposable diapers is that they are single-use products which fill up landfills and they also cost you a lot in the long run as you would need to buy a LOT of these.
If cloth diapers are too much work for you and using regular disposable diapers don’t make you feel good with the environmental damage that they do, then organic and biodegradable diapers is what you should go for. These are made with eco-friendly materials like bamboo, wood pulp etc. However, you must note that these kinds of diapers are more expensive than your regular disposable diapers. Also, no organic diaper brand is 100 percent organic. But even then, these are still a great option if you want convenience while still caring for the Earth.
Now that you have all the information you need on the different kinds of diapers, let’s talk about some awesome brands that we’ve come across lately.
Founded in 2015, Superbottoms specialize in reusable cloth diapers for babies and toddlers. They also have padded underwear, dry feel langots, swaddles, top & shorts sets, travel accessories and more. But their signature product is the Superbottoms UNO.
