The growth history of 'diapers'
Dear mothers, when you were changing your baby's diapers, did you recall your childhood? At that time, few people had used diapers, and families with children were 'flags fluttering'. Look at how happy the babies are now, and the mothers and grandmas with children feel more happy and relieved! When did diapers rise, and how did they evolve into such a 'high-tech' product step by step? How many tortuous stories there are, and how many scientists have worked hard for it, let me take you into the growth history of this 'diaper':
Maybe you don't believe that at the beginning of the birth of human beings, there was the concept of using 'diapers', but the diapers at that time were completely different from the current diapers. At that time, the baby used 'diapers' made of 'pure natural materials', such as certain plant leaves, animal skins, or folded weeds and moss. Although it is impossible to verify how often the ancients changed their 'diapers' for babies, it is generally believed that it is good to change them once every three or four days. In cold places, in order to keep warm, babies are often wrapped in blankets, and these blankets are the original 'diapers'. In some tropical areas, people rarely use 'diapers'. Mothers predict when their babies will be excreted, and then take the babies outside for convenience and to avoid soiling the living quarters.
The prototype of disposable diapers appeared in Europe and North America from 1930 to 1950, fifty or sixty years ago. Like many famous inventions in the world that have greatly improved people's lives, the birth of diapers is closely related to the Second World War. In order to solve the problem of cotton shortage during World War II, the Germans invented a fiber tissue paper made of wood pulp, which is very soft and highly absorbent. Later, a company in Sweden continued to develop and cut the tissue paper into a special shape, folded one by one in gauze or mesh knitted fabric, and then put it in the baby's underwear. Soon, this new type of disposable diapers began to be sold in major hospitals and stores, but the cost was very high, and the price at that time was also very expensive!
Later, a mother in the United States thought that although this disposable diaper was very useful, it could not solve the problem of urine penetration, so she thought that a waterproof layer could be added under the diaper or disposable diaper, and applied for a patent. Achieved another revolutionary great progress. After years of evolution, diapers have become an excellent product with good water absorption, breathability and softness today, which solves the baby's peeing problem very well.
