Being a parent is a full-time job, and one that demands a lot of your time, energy and finances. But the pay-off is this – the look of love and adoration on the cutest little faces.
This look makes the sacrifices all worth it. And then some.
Zoie, my youngest, will turn 15 months soon, and the one question the grandmother asks me all the time is: “Is she walking yet?”
Well, the answer is a no. Not yet. She hasn’t made the transition from crawling to walking – and finds it a breeze to make her way around the house on all-fours. Am I concerned? Not at all – because all kids develop at their own pace. Her two brothers only started walking at 13 and 14 months, so she seems to keep pace with them. Haha! I guess I have a family of late-walkers but early-talkers!
Not being able to walk doesn’t mean Zoie isn’t active – and she is one wriggling fidgeting toddler, which means simple tasks like changing her clothes or nappy takes a whole lot of time. And time is a precious commodity when you become a parent, more so when you have more than one kid to take care of.
One way I try to shave off a few precious minutes a day from nappy-changes is by using Drypers Drypantz for Zoie. Since she turned 10 months, I have started using these pants diapers. Pants diapers are usually associated with older toddlers who are undergoing toilet training, but the fact is these pants diapers are also suitable for babies from as young as 6 months or 7kg. I love using these diapers for the very simple and pragmatic reason of ease of use. It takes one single smooth motion to get the pants diapers on my wriggly toddler – as opposed to three or more motions to get the normal diapers on securely. And when you go through as many diaper changes a day as I do, these all translate into a lot of time saved and a lot of frustration avoided.
Took this totally unglam shot of my baby’s behind – all clad in her Drypers Drypantz! (Ooops haha!)
Unglam photo aside, a baby’s bottom is a very delicate area, and a good pair of pants diapers should fit snugly, but not too tightly over the waist area so that it would not cause discomfort or worse, rashes or redness over the area. Apart from the fit, another reason for rashes around the diaper area is the material and its “breathability”.
Drypers Drypantz has its Comfort FitTM waistband to tackle these two issues head-on, by ensuring that babies enjoy maximum comfort and softness, and fits well on babies’ waist without “biting” into the skin and creating pressure marks or rashes and causing discomfort.
In fact, Drypers has introduced two new mascots. Meet Airy & Softie, which you will find near the waistband of each Drypers Drypantz. Airy is a colourful little pinwheel that embodies breathability and better air circulation. Drypers Drypantz’s extra breathable waistband helps reduce pressure formed on the skin at baby’s tummy and waist area, creating a more comfortable fit for baby. Softie is a fluffy little cloud that embodies softness and comfort, just like the unique technology which goes into making Drypers Drypantz’s waistband extra soft, gentle and comfy on baby’s skin.
