Sleep is a basic necessity of every individual whether it is an infant or an adult. And if that infant is your child, then you are probably aware that how your sleep pattern is interlinked with your baby’s. It may seem like an impossible feat to get your little baby to let you get a full night’s sleep, but it can be very easy if you just look at different causes which are not allowing them to sleep properly at night.
One of the leading cause of disturbing baby’s sleep is the wrong kind of overnight diaper and finding the best one in the world filled with so many options is not an easy feat. To help you with choosing from so many options we are going to provide you with this buying guide for overnight diapers.
Cloth diaper versus disposable diaper:
There are two types of diapers available, one is an economy and environment-friendly cloth diaper which can be reused by simply washing it, and the other one is a disposable diaper which is obviously more expensive as it cannot be reused. So see what you can afford and get that one for your baby.
The material of the diaper:
The material of the diaper is very important as the wrong kind of material can cause your baby rash and itching which you obviously don’t want. It also determines its absorbent power which is very important in a nighttime diaper as a wet or a leaky diaper won’t let you or your baby sleep properly.
A cloth diaper may be made up of only one type of cloth, but a disposable one consists of three layers, which are;
Top sheet: It is the one in direct contact with your baby’s skin, and you don’t want it to be abrasive or rough as it would cause itchiness and rash.
Absorbent core: This is kind of the main part as it determines the absorbent power of the diaper, and that is what you are really looking for.
Waterproof outer shell: With a waterproof outer core it would ensure that the moisture stays in the diaper until you can change it when the baby wakes up.
You don’t want your baby to be either trapped in a too tight diaper or a too loose diaper. As the tight diaper would make your baby feel claustrophobic. This wouldn’t provide him with any comfort at all which is, again obviously, not what you are going for. And the loose diaper would be leaky causing your child to wake up more often than not to get their diaper changed.
The investment in buying these diapers may cost you a bit more than what you probably expected, but truthfully they would be really good in the long run as they wouldn’t disturb your baby’s sleep cycle and prevent him from getting any rashes or itchiness. After all, a baby’s comfort is what really matters to a parent.
