The thickness of a newborn baby’s skin is only one third of adults, making it very delicate. When your newborn feeds entirely on milk the result is loose poos that tend to spread all over the babies buttock and genital area. Baby’s poos and urine are acidic and can cause irritation on a baby’s sensitive skin. A newborn also urinates frequently and the only way to keep them dry is to constantly change their nappies. In addition to having highly sensitive skin, a newborns navel area is also sensitive as their navel heals after the umbilical cord detaches. A normal nappy does not take into consideration that it is important to keep this area clean, dry and exposed.
The revolutionary BabyLove DriWave™ nappy is the only nappy specifically designed with babies’ skin and ultimate comfort in mind (esp. newborns and infant). DriWave™ technology features a unique top sheet that has a loose on top & dense at bottom structure which maximizes liquid absorption to the bottom and keep surface dry. The soft wave-like pattern on the top sheet also means less direct skin contact area, therefore, reducing the risk of skin irritation.
