Baby Nappy Types
Finding the right nappy for your baby could be confusing. Before we go any further to determine the right nappy for your baby, let’s take a look at the technology behind the various layers of a disposable nappy and its purpose.
Types of nappies
Location / Material
Inside layer that is in direct contact with your baby’s skin.
Designed to transfer moisture to the absorbent core and keep your baby’s skin dry.
Absorbent layer, cotton like pulp, super absorbent polymer material
Inner layer which is the most important part of a nappy.
Sand-like crystals or super absorbent polymer that absorbs water through osmosis. BabyLove state-of-the-art nappy core absorbs up to 50 times its weight in water compared to other cloth or disposable nappy. A superior absorbency core like the ones used by BabyLove ensures that your baby stays dry and healthy and is protected from unwanted rashes and infections.
Polyethylene is the resin of choice for waterproof layer. Designed to create a microscopic funnel, this thin layer of fibre have pores large enough for air to flow in but too small for water to seep out.
This gives it the breathable quality that keeps your baby dry without leakage.
Repositionable tape or Velcro that can open and close repeatedly.
BabyLove fasteners are designed to fit comfortably to your baby’s body. It is lightweight and designed according to baby’s age and growth stage to ensure your baby receives the best protection.
