If the Diaper Fits, Wear It!

When you are a mum of two kids, with lots of things to buy and bills to pay, every little bit of savings count.

My precious, the loves of my life

I don't know about you but as someone who does not like to waste anything, I'd hate to have to give away diapers that are in a size that my kids can no longer wear because they have outgrown them.

So how do you know when to change from size M to L?

Well this comes with experience and keen observation. Case in point, Baby Boy is starting to outgrow his current diaper (if you see his chunky thighs, you'd understand why).

You know a diaper's too small because:
1) There are deep pressure marks on the skin, especially around the leg openings
2) There are redness around the waist and thighs
3) The diaper sits too much below the belly button (ideally, it should sit just slightly below the belly button)

It is definitely time for me to get bigger diaper pants for my boy! Oh how fast he has grown! (*groan*)

In general, the moment we notice that diaper is starting to cause pressure marks, we would buy a bigger size in our next purchase so that we don't waste money (better for your baby to wear a slightly bigger diaper than a diaper that is too small).

With a proper diaper in place, the kids are free to roll about in any way that they like and you won't have to worry =)

And if you have a toddler like me, trust me, life is so much easier when your kid knows how to put on her own diaper.

That's really easy to do (and teach) with Drypers Drypantz, as my girl demonstrates in 3 easy steps:

STEP 1: Stretch It Out
Even before putting on the diaper, ensure that your child stretches it out both at the top and at the bottom of the diaper pant to "loosen" it before putting it on.

This will ensure that the gathers of the diaper will not be folded inwards and "clip" your child's skin. You may need to remind your child repeatedly to stretch out the diaper because there is a high chance that they will not remember (hopefully over time, they will no longer need any reminders =P).

STEP 2: Front Side Up
Teach them to distinguish between the front and the back (and as an OCD mum, I'm very particular that she gets it right! *laughs*).

The back of the diaper has an animal (in this photo, a bee) is showing its backside (left)
while the front of the diaper has an animal facing front (back). It's not rocket science =)

STEP 3: Put it In & Pull it Up
Get your child to sit down when putting on the diaper as it's a lot easier. After they've inserted their legs, all they need to do is pull it up!

And viola! =)

Remember to check the fit around the thighs and waist because if the diaper is worn incorrectly, it may leak (it did a couple of times when we forgot to check).

A comfortable and stretchy waistband is also very important to ensure that the diaper fits just right without causing any discomfort which, as we know, is simply a recipe for disaster. Breathability and Softness can be achieved with the cloth-like Comfort Fit™ waistband and softer outer cover of the Drypers Drypantz that provides ultimate comfort for your child.

To illustrate this, meet Dryper's cute mascots, Airy and Softie!

Softie (right) is a fluffy little cloud, what the outer cover is made of (sort of)

Your child can now Breathe Easy with Drypers Drypantz! =)
