You want to use cloth diapers, but what about diaper pins? Diaper pins were actually used as far back as the fourteenth century. This is not too much of a surprise, considering that babies have been diapered since mankind began. Frequently, new parents are unsure what is best for their baby, with all of the available choices.
Disposable diapers seemed to be just about everyone's choice, for a very long time. Today people realize that there is a better choice available. We now know that disposable diapers are not the healthiest choice for your baby. Disposable diapers also cause harm to the environment, and sit in landfills literally for years. This is why so many have chosen to go back to cloth diapers.
Many parents who choose pre-fold diapers, choose to also use diaper pins. This creates a situation, where it is less likely for a baby to slip out of the diaper, which can be quite messy, among others concerns.
Years ago, diaper pins left something to be desired. More than a few children managed to open these pins, only to become injured. The old fashioned diaper pins were even at times, able to be opened accidentally, through regular movement. No wonder so many people readily accepted disposable diapers.
Today most diaper pins come equipped with safety features. Many of these pins come with covers, or special latches which must be triggered, in order to open up the pin.
Many diaper pins these days are contoured to the shape of a baby's body. This allows the pins to sit flush against the diaper, rather than sticking out on the sides. This will make the diaper pin less noticeable, especially to the baby. As a result, the baby will not be fascinated by the diaper pin, and begin explore ways of removing it.
No one would think of having a sharp object near a child. In the case of diaper pins, this is not the case. You will indeed want these to the sharp, in order to glide more easily to the diaper. Be sure to keep your hand between the child's skin, and the pin, in order to avoid injury, and great pain to your child.
Cloth diapers are much more comfortable for your baby. There are also much safer for the environment. What better way to teach your children about caring for the planet that they live on, than by using cloth diapers? Be sure to keep enough diaper pins on hand, and know how to correctly use them. If it makes you feel more comfortable, practice using these diaper pins, before using them to diaper your baby.
If you want to make a soon to be new mother's day, why not make your gift, cloth diapers and diaper pins. This is sure to be a hit, the cloth diaper has come back to stay.
