In the recently concluded Best for Baby Awards done by Smart Parenting Magazine, Pampers Active Baby bagged the title Best Diaper for Baby for 2014.
Smart Parenting Magazine formed a panel of baby experts to try and test top products that could affect baby’s delicate skin and sort out which brands are the best. This quest of finding out the best disposable diaper for baby has been one of their top priorities since babies wear them 24/7 for the first three years of their lives.
Our baby’s bum is constantly exposed to pee and poo everyday, thus, making it a strong candidate to skin rashes, irritations and infections. It is very important for us parents to realize that not all disposable diapers are of the same quality.
With this in mind, Smart Parenting set a 5-point criteria to test the performance of disposable diapers: dryness, absorption speed, comfortable fit, softness, and skin protection – all of which should be part of every mom’s consideration set when choosing the best diaper to protect her baby’s delicate skin.
The number one reason why babies wake up at night is because of wetness in their diaper. Keeping baby’s skin dry is important not just to prevent baby’s discomfort, but also to prevent the skin from infections and irritations. Even after several wettings, Pampers Active Baby was able to absorb wetness and still remain drier than all other brands. Not only can Pampers help prevent skin rashes for young baby, but could also give both mom and baby better sleep at night.
2. Absorption speed
As baby’s skin is prone to developing rashes when exposed to wetness for a long time, a diaper needs to be able to absorb pee quickly. Through an absorbency test, our panel of experts has discovered that Pampers Active Baby can absorb pee faster than any other brand, ensuring baby’s bottom is exposed to as little wetness as possible.
3. Comfortable Fit
A diaper needs to have a snug fit that can stretch with baby’s every move, ensuring he is comfortable while preventing diaper leakage. In addition, the diaper’s tapes should be secure but not too tight so as not to leave red marks on baby’s skin. Because of Pampers Active Baby’s stretchy sides which can expand to the longest length of up to 40 centimeters, it has the flexibility to adapt to baby’s movements but still prevent leakages.
Baby’s sensitive bum warrants a soft diaper. Pampers Active Baby has a soft cottony cover that is visibly supple to the touch, which can help prevent skin friction and irritations.
5. Skin Protection
Test results show that Pampers Active Baby contains baby lotion on its topsheet which, according to studies, puts a protective layer between pee/poo in the diaper and baby’s skin. It’s important to shield baby from wetness in the diaper and his skin so as to prevent rashes and skin irritations from developing.
Congratulations Pampers Active Baby for being the best in the Disposable Diapers category!
So when it comes to giving the best care for our baby, it is wise to invest in a top quality brand that mom experts trust to help protect our baby’s sensitive skin — Pampers Active Baby.
