Diapers also have a shelf life
Generally speaking, diapers are composed of three main parts: surface covering layer, an absorbent core layer, and base cloth. The surface coating is close to the baby's body, which can make the urine quickly penetrate, prevent back seepage, and keep the surface of the diaper dry. At present, the breathable non-woven fabrics used in the domestic market can make babies feel soft and comfortable and can improve the degree of ventilation inside the diapers. Water vapor, humidity, and hot air can be discharged out of the diaper in time. The absorbent core layer can quickly absorb urine, disperse or diffuse urine to the entire core layer through capillary action, and finally absorb and store urine.
Nowadays, some novice parents are relatively young and are relatively unfamiliar with taking a baby, especially when they resist the baby's urine and urination. It has to be said that diapers are a great invention. It has made countless parents no longer suffer from the pain of washing diapers, freeing them from the sea of u200bu200bsuffering and making it easier for them to take care of their babies. Newborn babies’ body organs are underdeveloped and cannot effectively control their own excretory system. Therefore, the baby’s defecation has become the most troublesome problem for parents. Especially parents who don’t use diapers have to get up several times every night, and they have to support their tired body to change diapers, which also affects the sleep of the baby and parents.
But for families where children use diapers, the sleep quality of both parents and children can be greatly improved. Everyone knows that many things have a shelf life. In fact, it must be used up within a fixed time after opening, or it will expire.
So how long will baby diapers expire? What should I pay attention to when buying diapers for babies?
Pay attention to the shelf life when using diapers. The shelf life of diapers is generally 3 years, depending on the diapers used. Each pack of diapers is printed with the date of use before a certain date. It is recommended that mothers buy relatively 'fresh' diapers through formal channels, and beware of the hazards of counterfeit and inferior products to the baby's health.
In addition, it is recommended to use diapers within 2 to 3 months after opening. If it is in a humid environment, it needs to be used as soon as possible. Generally, it is used within a month. If it is used for a long time, bacteria will grow. If it is opened for a period of time, it is recommended to expose it to the sun before use, which is conducive to disinfection. It is recommended that mothers do not stock up many boxes when buying diapers. Different brands of diapers will have some differences in size.
After the mother buys a small package for the baby to wear, if she finds it is suitable for the baby to wear, she can buy diapers that are 1-2 months old. Mothers only need to choose qualified diapers produced by regular manufacturers, use them correctly, replace them in time, and clean them every time they change. Under normal circumstances, their baby's skin is fine. A large number of scientific research results have shown that diapers can keep the baby's skin dry and can effectively avoid long-term contact between the skin and urine in the diapers and cause excessive moisture.
Humidity is often an important factor in inducing skin diseases in babies because it makes the skin easier to wear and irritate, and is conducive to the growth of germs. The extraordinary water absorption of diapers can prevent moisture from contacting the skin.
