We’ve been talking to real mums about what they look for in the perfect nappy and how to save money by buying diapers from Lazada on 25 July...
Changing nappies: the parenting task that ranks pretty much at the bottom of all the little – and big – jobs mums and dads face on a daily basis. Not only is it a far from pleasant experience (wrestling a toddler out of a disgusting nappy and trying to convince them to stay still requires the kind of steely resolve usually reserved for a battlefield), but nappies are soooo expensive. Insult to injury, huh? So what if we told you that while we haven’t got the answer to wrangling a toddler into a fresh nappy just yet, we have got a way to save a shedload of cash with a great diaper deal thanks to Lazada? Yep: we’ve got the lowdown not only on how to shop ‘n’ save on all your baby essentials, but also some wise words from real mums who have tried, tested and aced the art of picking the perfect diaper for their own bubba’s peachy bottoms…
The perfect diaper
Whether you call them nappies or diapers, parents are all looking for different things when it comes to what bottom containing choice they plump for…
Mum of two, Jana: The best diapers are the ones that let my little one sleep through the night without an emergency leak situation. No leaking = a better night’s sleep for everyone!
Mum of three, Tracy: My nappy days are now over (woohoo!), but for me the most important factor was choosing a nappy that absorbed as much as possible, as my kids were prone to nappy rash. Locking away the liquid (and the unsavoury stuff) was top of my priority list, with cost effectiveness being my other main concern.
Mum of two, Kate: My baby stays really well hydrated all day long which is great until it’s bed time and then a super-absorbent nappy is key. I also look for a nappy that is comfortable for my little one to move around in as being a toddler involves a lot of running around! That’s why I make sure that the nappies I use have super strong tape to hold them in place.
Mum of one, Santi: Nappies that have a line to indicate when it’s full and needs changing are the best. I like that I can have a quick check without having to open up the nappy (because let’s face it, resealing those tapes never seems to pan out). I love those lines!
Mum of two, Yvonne: Since I have two toddler daughters, I don’t have the luxury of time as a working mum, so a diaper that is easy to put on and take off is essential. I have another baby on the way, so cost is also a big consideration… Three kids in nappies is not going to be easy on the wallet!
Mum of three: Brynie: I have three kids close in age, and having all of them in diapers at the same time meant a LOT of poop to handle! I look for something that is super absorbent and sensitive to skin. Plus night time diapers need to be able to handle 12 hours of use, so comfort is also a huge factor for me.
