Why does the number of diapers in a pack decrease as my baby moves to a larger size?

As your baby grows, the frequency of its urine and stool decreases whereas the amount increases. Your baby therefore needs fewer but a larger and more absorbent Diapy.

What are the alarming symptoms concerning my baby’s bowel movements?

Your baby is in need of medical attention incase of:

  • Diarrhea or loose stools

  • Red colored urine or blood in stools

  • Stools that are persistently hard and difficult to pass.

  • Less than 5-6 wet diapers per day (after third or fourth day).

  • Less than 2 bowel movements per day (up to 5-6 weeks of age).

What would be the difference in my baby’s stool if I bottle-feed instead of breast-feeding?

  • Breastfed infants will produce loose, watery yellow/gold stools. Bottle fed infants will produce a bulkier and more formed stool that is soft and can range in color from light yellow-brown to darker brown depending on the ingredients of the formula.

  • Brest fed babies may produce more frequent bowel movements than bottle-fed babies do.

  • The smell of a bottle fed babies stool will be pretty pungent, too, smelling more like an adult's stools. Breast fed babies have stool that may be quite sweet smell.

How can I prevent rashes?

  • To prevent rashes, you should allow air to touch your baby’s skin. Rashes occur when your baby’s skin is left damp for a long time.

  • Try to change your baby’s Diapy as soon as you know that it has been soaked.

  • It is important to clean your baby’s diaper area. Make sure that you gently use a soft cloth / cotton.

What causes diaper leakage?

A leakage may occur because your baby might have outgrown the absorbency level of a diaper and may need a larger one. Weight and age recommendations are only guidelines and you may need to move on to the next size even if your baby is not up to the recommended age and weight levels.

  • Other factors that may cause leakages are:

  • Your baby’s eating and drinking habits as the volume of urine and stool is determined by the type and level of nutrition.

  • The consistency level of your baby’s stool.

  • How mobile and active your baby is

What do I need to be careful of while changing my baby’s Diapy?

  • Make sure you choose a sturdy changing surface, preferably the floor, as it is safer.

  • Place your baby’s Diapy pack and other necessities within easy reach, so you do not have to run around.

  • While fastening the Diapy, make sure it is just the right fit not too tight or too loose.

  • If you feel or hear your baby doing potty, allow it time to finish so you may avoid a mess while changing.

How often should I change my baby’s Diapy?

In the first few months, your baby’s needs frequent Diapy changing. However, as it grows older, the frequency decreases and the volume increases. Usually, your baby needs a change:

  • Before going to sleep at night

  • When it wakes up

  • When you are taking your baby out of the house

  • Before or after you feed

How can Diapy help establish a close bond with my baby?

The best way to bond is to spend precious quality time with your baby. With a thousand ‘things to do’ on our minds, we miss out on enjoyable moments with our little ones.


Diapering gives you a chance to spend valuable time with your baby. It is a time when your entire energies are devoted towards your little one and is thus a perfect opportunity to establish a sense of trust and affection. While diapering, make sure that you:

  • Keep talking or playing with your baby to make diapering a fun time for both of you.

  • Follow good hygiene and clean-up practices. This will not only keep your baby healthy in the short run but also teach methods for keeping itself clean in the long run

  • Avoid making faces at the smell or sight of your baby’s potty and urine, as it may begin to wonder why something associated with it is so disgusting to you.

  • Involve your little one in the process so it may learn to be self-sufficient. If your baby is involved in its own diapering and self-care, it becomes easier to potty train.

  • Treat your baby respectfully and gently while diapering. This helps your baby realize that its body is precious and also helps it learn how to treat others with tenderness and care.
