Product Talk: Disposable Diapers


So how do you go about choosing the best disposable diapers for your baby? There are several things to keep in mind: 

  • Fit: check the leg gathers and elasticity. Nobody wants a leaking diaper, but also, nobody wants one that pinches or irritates.
  • Dryness: varies by brand.
  • Fastening tabs: tape or Velcro should be easy to use, and re-sealable.
  • Boy vs Girl: some diapers have specially designed diapers for each gender. The absorbent padding is strategically placed.
  • Size: diapers come in several sizes, and packages come in sizes, too.
  • Cost: this can vary greatly!
  • Color and design: not necessary, but often preferred

A disposable diaper has a soft, cloth-like, waterproof outside. Inside there is a moisture-wicking layer, and an absorbent gel inner core.

That gel inner core can sometimes cause problems. If babies don’t feel wet, they don’t fuss. Sitting too long in a wet diaper can cause diaper rashes. Sometimes a less-absorbent diaper is better!

How many diapers do you use each day? Generally speaking, newborns go through 10 to 12; infants use 8 to 10 a day; toddlers use 6 to 8 and potty-learning children can still use 4 to 6 diapers every day. That’s a lot of diaper changing! No wonder disposables are so popular; the convenience alone is significant!

At Brookshire’s our store brand diapers, TopCare, are guaranteed. You’ll get your money back if you’re not pleased with their performance!
