If you had to choose a registry item as a new parent, it would probably be a diaper. It’s one of the essential items you just need for your baby. After all, your baby’s comfort depends on how clean and dry he/she is through the day.

In fact, once you’re on this journey expect to be a diaper-slinging pro. Many newborns even go through 10 diapers per day and that means 300 diaper changes for you. But who is counting, right?!

However, we have to admit that diaper shopping can be confusing at times. There are many so many types and brands on the market. So how do you choose the best diaper brand for your baby?

How To Choose The Best Diaper For Your New Tot

Well, as new parents, what we want in a baby diaper depends on our baby’s needs. Typically, here are the points you should note while buying this essential item for your bub.

  1. Absorbency for minimising mess

  2. Comfort for an active child’s ease of movement

  3. Easy on Sensitive Skin

  4. Cost effectiveness

Now let’s take a look at some of the brands that offer all these comforts and are just click away.

Editor’s review

After trying multiple diaper brands, we were amazed by the absorbent power Pampers Baby Dry. We love how Pampers Baby Dry kept our baby’s bottom smooth and dry despite being heavily soaked with a night of pee.

1. Absorbency

  • 3 layers of absorbency to pull liquid away and keep your baby dry.

  • Wetness indicator shows when your baby might need a change.

One is never enough, we love that Pampers offer three layers of absorbency in their baby diapers. It also helps that there is a wetness indicator that allows us as parents to ‘inspect’ at a glance.

2. Comfort

  • Breathable dryness to keep your baby comfortable.

  • Breath-ability keeps air circulating around baby’s skin through the night.

  • Soft like cotton keeps the baby comfortable for the night’s sleep.

  • All-around stretchy sides make for a comfortable fit.

Red stretch mark imprints left by diapers that are too tight are uncomfortable and painful for babies. We love that the baby diapers from Pampers are stretchable for an all around comfort fit.

Singapore’s climate is extremely humid and the breathability in Pampers allows sweat from an active baby to evaporate. This is perfect for keeping your baby comfortable while they are actively playing or trying to get a good night’s sleep.

3. Sensitive skin

  • Dermatologically tested and hypoallergenic ensures they are gentle against baby’s skin.

Safety is one of the top concerns for parents when choosing the right baby diapers. Babies have sensitive skin, and it is satisfying to know that their baby diapers are dermatologically tested and are hypoallergenic.

2. Drypers Touch

And that’s why Huggies Gold Diapers makes it to our list of the top seven best diaper brands in Singapore.

Editors Review

Established in 1983 in Japan, Merries diapers are a product of 31-years of R&D.

Merries diapers are developed for Asians along with dermatologists and pediatricians. Its focus is to make products gentle on the baby’s skin. No wonder Merries diapers is consistently the No.1 brand in Japan.

We tried Merries ourselves and found that it kept our babies bottoms effectively dry throughout the day. A definite win in our books.

1. Absorbency

  • Triple layer air through system quickly absorbs pee and prevent spreading around the diaper with its “Airy Wavy Mesh”.

  • Ultra absorbent material used in Merries Diapers can absorb up to 200 – 300 times the weight of fluid relative to its weight.

  • Colour changing wetness indicator changes to dark blue when it’s time to change the diaper.

2. Comfort

  • Air-through system leaves the baby’s bottom airy and dry though its “Airy Wavy Mesh” technology that draws heat and moisture out.

  • Breathable outer diaper sheet has micro airy channels that releases only heat and nothing else.

  • Easy Fit stretches 2.5 times resulting in a snug fit around a baby that not only prevents leakage, but also stays in place.

We love that the stretchable design also makes it extremely easy for us as parents to change the baby diapers with little fuss and mess.

3. Sensitive skin

  • Airy wavy mesh does not stick to a baby’s skin, and draws heat and moisture. This is usually the number one factor in skin irritation.

Diapers with a snug fit can retain up to 80 percent moisture, and this build up of moisture and heat can result in skin irritation. The design is built to be breathable. It also reduces build-up of moisture and heat. Therefore, resulting in dryness and all round comfort for our babies.
