A diaper is another form of underwear which is used for babies who are not yet potty trained as well as adults with incontinence to absorb the waste product to prevent spoiling the outer clothes. They have to be changed as soon as they become soiled to avoid skin rash.
Types of Diapers
The materials used in the diapers are equally as important as the style of diaper you choose. The most important feature of a dipper is the absorbency layers. Diapers come in many varieties so that each family can find exactly what works for them.
Cloth Diapers - They are reusable and can be washed with hand or by machine. Diapers are usually white in color and rectangular in shape. They can be made from natural fibers like flannel, bamboo or industrial cotton with or without waterproof material inside. Most cloth diapers are fastened with hook and loop tape (Velcro) or snaps. Used mainly for babies. Buying cloth diapers for one child can cost as little as $300 over the full time a child is in diapers.
Disposable Diapers - A disposable diaper, or cloth with plastic pants is best use for babies, toddlers, children, adults and old people. They are not reusable and need a change as they get wet. They are much thinner and much more absorbent. Important features of disposable diapers include one or more pairs of either adhesive or mechanical fastening tapes to keep the diaper securely fastened. Few diapers now commonly include wetness indicators, in which a chemical included in the fabric of the diaper changes color in the presence of moisture to alert the user and care taker that the diaper is wet. Disposable diapers cost about $62.50 per month, $750 per year, over the full time a child is in diapers.
Training Pants - Training pants are similar to children’s diapers in construction but they can be put on like normal underwear. Training pants are used for children who experience bedwetting. They are mostly worn by children but are used by adults with medical conditions with urinary like bed wetting or fecal incontinence, or those who are bedridden or otherwise limited in their mobility. Toilet training pants comes with flexible sides for the user to easily put or pull them off and on like normal underwear to increase independence, make training easier, and are designed to be child-friendly.
Choose the Right Diaper
Baby diapers - Parents adore diapers because their children stay dry all the time even when they've got soiled on their own.

Look what you want carefully before buying them. There's no denying that disposable diapers are a major convenience for many parents and adults. Some disposable diapers have petroleum-based lotions in the liner, and some are scented with light fragrance. The lotion lubricates the skin and protect baby's bottom. Most disposable diapers have materials in the crotch padding that enhance absorbency. Stretch sides help the diaper to do a better job of molding to a baby's body, which can help stop leaks. The moment your child starts potty-training he can wear pull-ups, which are diapers that look and feel a bit more like regular underwear. Disposable underwear is designed to keep older children dry at night if they are wetting the bed while sleeping.
