Keeping the child dry at all times is one of the most important things for parents. And if earlier mothers had to wash the baby's diapers or pants almost continuously, now it is possible to use diapers or special panties. The purpose of both is the same, but each case has its own nuances.
A diaper is a product that absorbs urine and serves to prevent contamination of clothing.
Panties-diapers - underwear in the shape of a pant and serving as a diaper.
Consider in more detail the design features of these products. So, the main difference between diapers and panties is that diapers have fixing Velcro, while panties do not have them. Therefore, both are put on the child in different ways.
To fix the diaper, the baby must be placed. Such manipulations are convenient to do at a very early age of the crumbs. The advantage is that, when changing a diaper, it is not necessary to take everything off your feet (this is especially important if you have to change your baby on the road). In general, panties are not produced for newborns, but it is easier and faster to put on them on a grown-up toddler. In this case, there is no need to fiddle with Velcro, and the son or daughter can stand at this time.
During the period of potty training for a strengthened baby, it is more convenient to use panties - they can simply be lowered, while diapers must be completely removed from the baby. In addition, a baby can be taught to take off and put on panties on his own, but he is unlikely to be able to cope with diapers.
Panties are also good because they sit securely on a crawling or walking child. The diaper, on the other hand, can be lost if the Velcro is accidentally unbuttoned. Moreover, the side fasteners often cause increased interest in fidgets and an irresistible desire to unhook them.
However, despite the convenience, the panties are not suitable for all babies. For some, they cause severe skin irritation. After all, these products are tighter than diapers, adhere to the body, and such close contact often leads to unpleasant consequences. A way out of the situation can be the purchase of panties of a slightly larger size.
What is the difference between diapers and panties in relation to cost? I must say that the price for the latter is higher. If it is not too expensive to buy panties and the child does not have any undesirable reaction, then it makes sense to dwell on them when the baby is already more than a month old. And in other cases, you can do with standard diapers..
