Mom Speaks: How To Maintain Proper Diaper Hygiene

As a mother to a newborn, feeding and changing diapers take up most of my time. Diaper changes can be an ugly business. Even when your baby is in a good mood, a diaper change can get really messy. Yet, it’s important to do it the right way and learn how to maintain proper diaper hygiene to avoid consequences such as infections and diaper rashes. When it comes to ensuring my baby’s hygiene, I believe that there aren’t any shortcuts. Babies, especially under the age of two, are highly susceptible to infections and need special care and attention with regard to proper hygiene. That’s why I decided to do some research on steps to follow for maintaining proper diaper hygiene. And luckily, they have worked great for me.

So, what are the most important steps to follow while changing your baby’s diaper? How to maintain proper diaper hygiene? And make it as sanitary as possible limiting the spread of germs? Here are some tips!


Choosing The Right Diaper

How to choose the right diaper and maintain proper hygiene

Choosing the right diaper for your baby can be a pretty daunting task. The market is flooded with so many different options, and I have spent hours trying to make the right decision. Personally, I was on the lookout for a product that is organic, gentle on my baby’s delicate skin, and easily disposable. That’s when I came across Mamaearth’s Plant-Based Diaper Pants For Babies.

These innovative diapers are designed with all-natural ingredients such as cornstarch and aloe-vera. Additionally, these plant-based diapers have been dermatologically tested and are free of harmful chemicals like parabens, latex, and petroleum-based lotions. What more? Mamaearth’s new eco-friendly diapers are affordable and safe for the environment. It is a smart choice for a greener tomorrow.

Changing my little one’s diapers feels like a never-ending job. It took me a while to get adjusted to the changing schedule. Since babies are so unpredictable, staying alert is a must at all times. Change your baby’s diaper as soon as it gets soiled to avoid nasty nappy rashes and other irritations. Also, be mindful of where you are changing the diaper. Avoid places like the kitchen or the living room.

It’s best if you can leave your newborn without a diaper for at least an hour every day. Avoid using a diaper if you notice any redness or rashes on their bottoms.

Use Distractions And Wipe Carefully

 My baby gets really fussy during a diaper change. He is, as you may call,  ‘a changing-table squirmer.’ That’s why I always keep a couple of toys near the changing table to use as distractions. While changing the diaper, clean your baby’s delicate bottoms with a gentle baby wipe. Always use a baby wipe that is natural, safe, and easy-to-use.

However, I must say that Mamaearth’s Plant-Based diaper Pants For Babies have proven extremely beneficial. Their pant-like diapers are super-convenient to put on, and the tearable sides make for quick and easy removal of soiled pants.


Disposing Of The Diapers

Be mindful of our environment and make a switch to eco-friendly and biodegradable diapers—for instance, Mamaearth’s Plant-Based Diapers Pants For Babies, containing plant-based extracts that are biodegradable. By making this smart transition, you can avoid causing long-lasting harm to the environment and take a step towards a sustainable lifestyle.


Always follow the right steps when it comes to maintaining diaper hygiene. It will help you in raising a perfectly healthy baby. So why compromise when it comes to choosing the right diaper for your baby? Choose a diaper that is the right fit for your baby, such as Mamaearth’s Plant-Based Diaper Pants For Babies. It is designed with cotton-like softness for your baby’s delicate skin and is easy on the environment as well.
