3 diapering tips for winter!

If you have a baby, you are definitely aware that anything can affect your baby’s pee pattern. A season, an illness, certain medications or sometimes, there could simply be no particular reason!

Winter, however, is a time when you can expect some obvious changes in your baby’s pee pattern. Cloth diapering in India during winters can depend on where you stay. In areas such as Mumbai and Chennai, the winters are pretty mild. However, Delhi, Bangalore, Pune and such places can definitely be much colder.

Here are 3 diapering tips for winter –

  1. Get heavy absorbency diapers: Winters can have your babies peeing often. The cold temperatures do have that effect. It is a good idea to invest in heavy absorbency diapers during winters. This, especially if you live in a place where the winters are really cold.
  2. Use coconut oil: Winters can cause dry skin. Add to it the reduced diaper-free time and it can cause irritation to the skin. It is a good idea to give the bum some diaper free time, if possible. Use coconut oil on the baby’s bum liberally between changes. This will keep your baby’s skin hydrated.
  3. Sunning and washing: During winters, especially in very cold areas, drying may take longer. It is a good idea to find at least some sun time and get your diapers out there. Also, do spin dry in washing machines to help dry quicker.

Let the winter season not deter you from cloth diapering your child. It is really pretty simple and doable if you just tweak your diapering routines and follow these simple baby diapering tips for winter.
