The life of a young parent is made up of many choices: finding the perfect color for the baby's room, choosing the right name, and... finding the ideal diaper. The choice of the latter is not the least, since the baby will wear it for almost 900 days in total once born. All parents want the best for their little ones. The choice of diaper is therefore essential for the baby's well-being and for your peace of mind.
Disposable diapers: simplicity above all
Disposable nappies have revolutionized the daily lives of young parents. Put them on, take them off and throw them away: it couldn't be easier! With nappies equipped with an absorbent material and a waterproof outer layer, more and more manufacturers are paying attention to their production method and favoring materials that protect baby's bottom without forgetting the environment.
A healthy and baby-friendly composition
There are hundreds of baby diaper brands on the market and finding the ultimate diaper is often a headache for parents. If any of them choose a leading brand, they can quickly miss out on an essential selection criterion: its ingredients.
Substances harmful to babies
Do you want to offer the best to your little one? Even if there is no specific standard for baby diapers, the risks associated with chemical substances are genuine, and some send shivers down the spine... Among the 250 substances that can represent a risk for babies (just that), we find:
- fragrant substances, which present risks of allergy (not at all baby-friendly)
- polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, natural constituents of petroleum (not very reassuring) in which we find proven carcinogens (not reassuring at all)
- synthetic oils that release carcinogenic dioxins on contact with heat
If these substances appear on a package of so-called healthy baby diapers, move on quickly and continue your research: baby's bottom will only thank you for it!
Labels to find your way around
The labels are there to guide you:
- the OEKO-TEX label ensures that the materials used in the manufacture of the diapers are free of toxic products for babies and the environment;
- the Dermatologically tested label confirms that our nappies are gentle on baby's skin and hypoallergenic.
In your quest for the ultimate diaper, these different labels are valuable clues to finding your perfect diaper.
Size is the simplest criterion to ensure a baby's comfort
Diaper size may vary depending on the baby's weight. If its weight fluctuates between two sizes, opt for a larger size to prevent it from leaking. GEGE offers baby diapers from size 3 to 6.
- Size 3: from 4 to 9 kg
- Size 4: from 7 to 17 kg
- Size 5: from 11 to 20 kg
Baby wears the right diaper size when the diaper is neither too tight nor too loose and leakproof!
Listening to baby: the best way to find the ultimate diaper
Your little one will spend more than 900 days in diapers, and that's a long time. The ultimate diaper is a healthy, high-performance diaper, designed with respect for the baby's health and comfort. And since every child is different, it is only by observing them that you will be able to find the perfect diaper!
