A recent survey revealed that eight (8) out of ten(10) nursing mothers use disposable diapers and that new fathers spend almost half their monthly income on diapers😂.
OK, let’s assume you’re an expectant mother(problem is, I’m not one😂) or even a nursing mother, with the array of diapers brands in the market and a variety of tips from your friends, what brand of diapers do you think could be OK for you precious champion? And you should be aware of the fact that the brand that worked fine for all six(6) babies of your neighbor may not just be fine with your baby. This is true because disposable diapers have this (rather annoying) way of selecting babies to work perfectly on. And so, a mother may use a particular brand on her first child without problems, but the same brand will not just work well on her other babies. I’m not saying this is the case all the time, but most times its just what happens.
There are a few problems a mother may encounter when using a brand of diapers on her baby. They could be one or more than one including:
- Constant leakage from the sides of the diaper
- Skin irritation Skin burning, rashes and skin de-colouration.
- Sizes not fitting well for a particular baby.
If any of these happens, its well advisable to change the brand of diapers you are using.
There are quite a number of diaper brands available in Nigeria(all are foreign made), but there quite a few that could be ranked as top best selling. These best selling diapers are from the follow brands: Pampers, Huggies, hope, vibelle and toujours. Let’s take a look at them.
This was my sister’s favorite for her second baby.
