The simplest clothing for newborn babies is dresses and nappies. So, we would like to teach our first-time moms few tricks and methods to put a nappy on a baby.
Malpiece, bandage cloth, old voile saris, old cotton sarongs, cheeththa cloth etc. are the most suitable types of clothes for our little darlings’ nappies. Although, the usual size of a nappy is 18”x18”, by opting for the size 22x22, you will be able to use the nappies for a longer time as your baby grows.
The usual method is to fold the square-shaped nappy once to make a triangle and then to gather the two corners around baby’s waist with the corner that folds between baby’s legs and to pin them all together. This method is less absorbent. What we are going to teach you now are more effective methods of putting nappies on babies to make sure that everything is properly absorbed with minimum chances of leakages. Furthermore, these methods ensure that the baby will not soil the person who is carrying her or her bed.
