Understanding the 'Physical Structure' of Diapers
Generally speaking, diapers are composed of three main parts: surface cover layer, absorbent core layer and base fabric.
1. Surface coating
It is close to the baby's body, and its main function is to ensure the rapid penetration of urine and effectively prevent back seepage, so as to keep the surface of the diaper dry. The diapers in the domestic market are basically non-woven fabric surface layer. The breathable non-woven fabric can improve the air permeability inside the diaper, and the water vapor can flow out of the diaper, and the moisture and heat can be discharged in time, effectively reducing the chance of diaper rash , soft and comfortable without irritating the skin.
2. Absorbent core layer
The main function of this layer is to capture and quickly absorb urine, disperse urine or spread it throughout the core layer by capillary action, and finally absorb and store urine.
At present, the absorbent core layer of diapers in the domestic market is mainly a layered structure composed of pure wood pulp (fluff pulp) and super absorbent resin (SAP).
3. Base fabric
Many foreign diapers have used non-woven fabrics that feel more comfortable and breathable, and the market price is relatively high. The bottom fabric of domestic diapers is still mainly composed of PE plastic film, and the air permeability is relatively poor.
Baby diaper use guide
Children using too tight diapers will have a certain impact on the body just like wearing tight underwear. Especially for boys, if the diapers are too small and tight, it is not good for testicular development.
The selection method of diapers is based on the tightness of the waist, and it is better to put two fingers vertically; in the groin, it is better to put an index finger flat. It is generally believed that paper diapers have gaps and good air permeability. In addition, as the baby's urine volume increases, be sure to choose diapers that absorb quickly. The most reliable principle is to go to regular shopping malls and supermarkets and other reputable retail places to buy, and at the same time remember to choose products from well-known companies. Before buying, read the instructions carefully to see if it meets the above two aspects. If it is spring and summer, be careful not to buy thicker ones suitable for autumn and winter.
Healthy skin should be dry as far as the diaper-wearing part of the skin is concerned. Wet skin can quickly become brittle and prone to diaper rash. To minimize wetness from diapers, change diapers frequently and use extra absorbent diapers. If you use conventional diapers, you should check and change them more often.
