Another option is molded diapers .
These two have different looks, as well as advantages and disadvantages, so please choose the one that suits your purpose and lifestyle.
We will also answer questions such as "How many should I buy?" and "When should I use them?" in detail later.
Number of diapers needed to prepare for childbirth
If you mainly use cloth diapers for childcareGenerally speaking, the number of times a baby needs to change their diapers decreases as they grow, starting from 10 to 13 times a day for newborns and 8 to 10 times a day for 3 months.
If you prepare the same amount of cloth diapers as the number of cloth diapers you need each day, you can manage to keep them going.
The minimum number of good cloth diapers you should have in preparation for giving birth is [20 cloth diapers + 4 covers] .
We want to create a comfortable environment for babies within reason for those caring for them, so we want them to use disposable diapers.
For example, we recommend disposable diapers when traveling or going out for long periods of time.
Carrying around dirty cloth diapers after use is not recommended for hygiene reasons.
We also want the person taking care of the baby to get a good night's rest, so we think it's best to use disposable diapers at night.
In this way, you can find a way to raise your child using cloth diapers that is convenient for you and uses cloth diapers and disposable diapers.
When using disposable diapers and cloth diapers togetherEveryone's family situation is different, such as having a job or having siblings.
It may be difficult to raise children using cloth diapers, but there may be some of you who would like to try using cloth diapers as well. Depending on the day, cloth diapers are used on different days, such as `` only on weekends ,'' ``only on days when the weather is good, '' or ``only when the person taking care of them is in good condition.'' If you use cloth diapers only when you have free time and use disposable diapers during busy times, I think even busy moms can easily continue using them.
In the case of hybrid diaper childcare as described above, if you prepare [10 cloth diapers + 2 covers] , you can use 10 diapers a day and use paper diapers the next day, cloth diapers 5 times during the day, and disposable diapers the rest. You can wash it and turn it around.
Extra edition: Number of cloth diapers to prepare for in case of disasterIn recent years, it has become essential to prepare for natural disasters such as heavy rain and earthquakes.
Diapers are a necessity for families with babies.
In the event of a disaster, regardless of how big or small the damage to the area around your home is, it becomes difficult to obtain the supplies you need due to hoarding behavior and distribution halts.
In particular, daily necessities such as diapers and sanitary products are among the first to disappear from store shelves.
Cloth diapers, which can be washed and reused as long as there is running water, are perfect for such times.
The number of cloth diapers to prepare as disaster supplies is [20 cloth diapers and 2 covers] We recommend that you prepare enough cloth diapers for two days.
However, if you have running water and can do laundry, you can wash and reuse two days' worth of cloth diapers.
If the water supply is not expected to be restored for several days, you will probably have to evacuate to an evacuation center, where you should be able to receive assistance with disposable diapers.
Depending on the disaster and the situation, evacuation may not be from the first day of the disaster, but from the second or third day.
It's a good idea to add enough diapers to your disaster prevention kit to make it through.
Additionally, in the case of Okinawa and remote islands, it is expected that it will take longer for logistics to recover, so please be fully prepared.
Number of diapers required for nursery school preparationWe often receive inquiries about how many cloth diapers we should prepare for our child's admission to nursery school.
You will probably receive a letter from the nursery school when you enroll your child, but if the number of sheets required in the letter is 10, you will need another 10 for washing (for the next day).
The covers will also need to be washed and replaced, so we recommend preparing at least twice the number specified by the nursery .
When I decided to enroll in a nursery school, it was a nursery school that required cloth diapers! It seems that there are many families who are preparing in a hurry.
If you have been using only disposable diapers until then, you may start to worry about how to use and care for them.
It's not difficult if you know about it, so please refer to the article below.
How to apply cloth diapersThere are two types of cloth diapers: molded diapers and traditional ring diapers (dobby woven diapers).
"Molded diapers" can be used in a similar way to disposable diapers, while "ring diapers" require a little more skill in folding the cloth.
In the article below, we will introduce how to apply cloth diapers with photos, so please check them out.
How to wash cloth diapersAfter all, washing cloth diapers seems to be a difficult task.
There are many things you don't know about using cloth diapers for the first time, such as whether soiled diapers can be cleaned properly, how do you wash them in the first place, and can you use a washing machine?
At Linenna, we create special detergents with the hope that raising children with cloth diapers will be more fun and happy.
Please check out the article below for detailed instructions on how to wash your clothes without having to worry about soaking them.
Features of RinennaBaby cloth diaper/diaper cover
molded diaperThis molded diaper is an innovative cloth diaper that eliminates the negative aspects of the original cloth diaper (ring diaper), such as being troublesome, difficult to apply, and difficult to wash.
I think you can understand the advantages of molded diapers by comparing them to long ring diapers, so I'd like to introduce them while comparing them.
- No tangles during washing!
Depending on the model, the machine may stop midway through dehydration and make an error sound... (and the tragedy of a baby waking up during a nap).
- No need to worry about wrinkles!
To prevent ring diapers from getting stiff, you need to take extra care to smooth out wrinkles or iron them when drying them.
- Easy to install
- Compact storage
Linenna's commitment to molded diapers
- Pursuing a leak-proof shape
- One size is OK until you graduate from diapers
Small babies can use it by folding it.
It is economical as there is no need to replace it.
- Skin-friendly material
The 3-layer microfiber structure firmly absorbs urine.
- Disperses absorbed urine
Especially for boys, urinating in the same spot over and over again can lead to leakage, but spreading it out in layers prevents leakage.
Dobby weave (ring diaper)
At Linena, we definitely recommend ``molded diapers,'' but some nursery schools also specify ``ring diapers.'' Of course, there are benefits to ``ring diapers,'' and there are also situations in which ``ring diapers'' are recommended. Masu.
Advantages of ring diapers
- dries quickly
It's nice to know that you don't have to worry about it drying out.
Ring diapers are recommended for these people.If you don't plan on using cloth diapers on a regular basis, but would like to have cloth diapers available in case of a disaster, ring diapers are definitely recommended.
We want to be fully prepared for disasters that may occur at any time, but diapers can only be used for a limited number of years.
Diapers prepared for emergencies are more likely to end their period without being used (I hope that's the case).
So, if you don't usually use cloth diapers, it's a good idea to prepare with inexpensive ring diapers.
Furthermore, as I mentioned in the merits of ring diapers, the fact that they dry quickly after washing is a great advantage in the hectic situation of a disaster.
Diaper covers are necessary for both molded diapers and ring diapers.
A diaper cover is used to prevent urine and poop from leaking.
At Linenna, we are particular about our diaper covers so that you can have a comfortable cloth diaper life.
Linenna's commitment to diaper covers
- 1 size until diaper graduation
The size can be adjusted with snap buttons around both the waist and thighs, so it can be used to fit any baby size.
- Not easy to leak
In addition, it is designed to fit snugly with Linenna's molded diapers, so using them together will more effectively prevent leakage.
- Soft and clean color range
Many colors are genderless, making them easy to choose as gifts.
Limited colors using color buttons are also available.
