A word about diapers in India: huggies, momy-poko-pants…

New-born makes any parent super sensitive and really choosy at times (well yeah all the times!). Same thing happened to us with the birth of our second child. We suddenly became active hunters for best baby products available in market. We were out there searching for everything from beddings, beds, prams, strollers, clothes, towels, nail cutters, nose pump, breast pump, bottles, thermometer, warmers, sterilizers, socks, shoes and the list goes on…

Oh and ofcourse the most important one of these, the one that keeps our bedrooms from turning into bathrooms, the saviour of bad smell, sights and keeper of expensive & favourite clothes – The Mighty Diaper!!!!

Unpleasant Duties

Unpleasant Duties

To our surprise big stores (we checked out HyperCITYQMart among others) were full of diapers but mostly M (medium ) and L ( large) sizes were in abundance(whats with that?). There were hardly any thing for tiny babies or newborns. My ever so online savvy side decided to order daipers from e-bay for our new baby. But I needed it today or atleast soon enough. So we thought of giving the smallest size available in stores a shot for immediate use. We tried pampers small size-2 (available in our city ) for our 3 kgs  baby boy. Huggies turned out to be too bulky  and thick , not good fit for my tiny baby. Pampers size-2  were big for my son when he was born but over a period of time it turned out to be best available daipers at our local stores. Momy-poko-pants, the brand from Japan …. I loved their wipes over diapers.

I have been using the ones bought here for about three months now. What’s the verdict?

  1. Huggies – They are ok and some folks may like them better over others. Me thinks otherwise. They were a bit too bulky for my kid
  2. Mamy-Poko – Can’t even find the right size 😦
  3. Pampers – So far the winner. Fits right, is light and works well. I haven’t had leakages ever with Pampers and the kid seems to be tolerating them better.

Tiny, Premie or Small, in India they are all NewBorn

—Richa’s Hard Earned Wisdom

My first child, my dear daughter Mira was born in US. There was amazing range of diapers for premies, tiny babies, newborns. She was born tiny so I used diapers for premies for pretty long time. I also liked earth babies brand. Pampers Swaddlers were really soft and cozy for newborns.We liked  pampers and continued it till our daughter was potty trained.


About Parenting

A creative, compassionate, empathetic mother of two amazing kids. I am interested in everything that is related to kids, be it eating, playing, creating stuff, cooking with them, most importantly understanding factors and ways to helping them grow into confident, passionate and good human beings. These mediums evolve from day to day interactions and incidents. Every day there are many things happening in a kids' life that shapes the future person he is going to be. My interest are varied and highly revolve around them. As a super proud mother of two, I have realized spending time with kids is like having a great collection of experiences captured in the book of life. I like to revisit these times again and again but time flies faster than we think it does. While penning down my thoughts, discoveries, opinion and philosophy of being mother, home maker, wife, and a great quest to find who I am enjoying myself as a photographer, writer and most importantly a thinker. You will find everything under the sun and beyond here in this blog.
