Polypropylene (PP) fabrics are lightweight, tough, reusable, and flexible. They also have higher water absorption capacity making them ideal for baby diapers and adult incontinence, as well as female sanitary products. The inner lining of the PP baby diapers often contains aloe and vitamin E, which prevents skin irritation and rashes. These diapers have higher absorption and are more convenient to use in infants as they are more hygienic and do not require laundering.
Preemie Diapers – A Revolution:
There are plenty of premature babies born every year, of which around 2% weigh less than 2 pounds. Although regular diapers have been a boon for mothers, these early arrivers have unique needs, which make their care different from full-term infants. Kimberly-Clark has worked with Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) nurses and neonatal therapists to develop their newest addition to Huggies family —Huggies Little Snugglers Diapers.
Preemie diapers are designed specifically to protect the baby’s fragile skin. They are made of super-absorbent breathable material that has premium liners to help reduce wetness against the skin. It is designed to narrow at the crotch in order to allow optimal fit, encouraging healthy growth and development. The soft and overlapping fasteners give gentle elasticity making it comfortable and flexible for the baby’s abdomen.
The material used is hypoallergenic, fragrance & lotion free, and free from latex rubber. They also come with color-changing wetness indicators to let you know when it’s time to change the baby’s diaper. Such diapers are specially designed with an umbilical cord cut-out to protect the healing belly button. PP used in side liners, waistband, leg elastic, absorbent padding, and fastening systems provide a snug and gentle fit, while protecting from leakage. Adorable Disney graphics of Winnie the Pooh and friends provide moms with a sense of comfort in the clinical environment.
