Becoming a parent is a life-changing occasion and can totally shake up anyone’s life. If you are a parent for the first time, you will be thinking constantly about what to do for your baby and how to do it best. That is normal. However, there are some important decisions that have to be taken after your baby has been born and one of them happens to be the diaper. There are two styles of newborn diapers available and they are discussed below. Read and you will be able to decide for yourself which one is the right choice for your little one.

Pant-style diapers

This is the modern style of diapers and needs to be mentioned first for its sheer popularity. More and more parents are choosing this type for the simple reason that it is very convenient to use. With a small baby, life can get hectic and there are only so many hours in a day. You need as much convenience as you can afford. Here are the main benefits of this style:

  • Minimum of fuss: Babies can be fussy and they can move around a lot (even newborns). Diaper pants can be changed without much trouble because they can be pulled up and down with ease. You don’t even need a changing station to change this type of a diaper.
  • More comfort: They offer more comfort to babies and protects them from diaper rash. The soft texture of diaper pants makes them the perfect choice for newborns.
  • Highly absorbent: Since new technology has been used to perfect this style, you can expect a high level of absorption. Newborns pee a lot and you will be happy to see that your baby goes hours without the diaper leaking. If you choose a brand which offers a criss-cross absorbent sheet, then that is another plus point.

Traditional style diapers

Traditional style diapers are ones which have to be attached on both sides using adhesive and this is a style that is still popular. Here are some of the advantages this style offers:

  • Good absorbency: They are certainly more absorbent than cloth diapers which can leak every time your baby pees.
  • Comfort: Choosing them over cloth diapers is a good idea because these will keep baby dry for a long time. This is again going to ensure that your baby sleep for some time. Of course, the pant-style offer more comfort.
  • Convenience: If you are taking baby out, it can be difficult to change cloth diapers every time she pees. That is why traditional style diapers are a better option.

The right choice

The best diapers for babies are without any doubt, the pant-style ones. They offer comfort and convenience. What’s more, you can also find them at affordable prices as long as you buy them from a good retailer. Their availability online makes the process of buying an easier one for tech-savvy parents. Needless to say, traditional-style diapers are a good choice over cloth diapers but they can’t hold a candle to the modern pant-style products.
