Diaper Essentials

My diaper changing essentials are Pampers Swaddlers, Pampers Aqua Pure Water Wipes, and Desitin Diaper Cream.


I have not tried all of the different diaper brands, but of the few I have tried, these are my favorite. They fit well, do not leak unexpectedly (there will always be occasions where a diaper cannot contain the mess), don't have a weird smell (some diapers do), are soft and seem comfortable for baby.


Tip: For new parents, diapers come in sizes N-7, N for newborn. I would stock up on larger sizes, sizes 2-7 and have one unopened box of size N and size 1 at home before baby arrives, so, if baby is already wearing size 2 in the hospital, the box of size N and size 1 can be returned.


I like the water wipes, because they do not have additional ingredients or chemicals that could dry out or harm baby's sensitive skin. They are thicker than other wipes that I have tried, so there is more of a barrier between my hand and the mess. They are also more durable and do not tear or fall apart like some wipes do.


Desitin is my go to for diaper cream. It is white, odorless, and made with zinc. It creates a barrier between babies skin and moisture which helps prevent and heal diaper rash. It is gentle enough for baby's sensitive skin. Some other creams have strong odors that make it difficult for newborns to breath and/or are ineffective at relieving diaper rash. Desitin comes in a tub that is great for the changing table, and a tube that can be used in the diaper bag on the go.


Those are my diaper essentials. What are your favorite essential diaper products?
