Having a baby and becoming parents is about the most beautiful and rewarding thing in the world. With it also comes a lot of work, effort and responsibility. Being a parent will also, very often, stretch your personal limit. But it also offers a lot of room for personal growth.
Once you have welcomed your baby into the world you will adjust to a new life almost overnight as you find yourself caring for a newborn around the clock. One thing that will keep you very busy and on your toes is changing diapers. Regardless of whether you use disposables or cloth diapers, changes must be often to avoid diaper rash from ammonia reacting with baby’s skin.
Hopefully you will opt for cloth diapers and reap many of its benefits. It is admirable to use cloth diapers and will give you a sense of pride.
With cloth diapers, especially prefolds, you can do creative diapering.
What is creative diapering?
Creative diapering means you are using what you have available in any given moment to diaper your baby. With prefold diapers this works extremely well. Use two diapers like a blanket underneath baby and cover baby up while you prepare the diaper. Not only are you ensuring that baby does not pee on you, if you have a boy, or in either case, any small little mess can easily be cleaned up. Cloth diapers are so soft, they feel comforting to the touch and you are reassured that baby will be swaddled into something cozy.
Prefolds can also be used as burp cloth or, in the event that you have leaking issue, you can double up on pre-folds and very quickly your problem is resolved.
One way of making things easier for yourself and to help you work through some chaos you may be experiencing is to have a diaper service set up before baby arrives.
