In earlier times, the child was made to wear a loincloth made of home-made cotton cloth. But today it is a trend to wear diapers. Diapers are leakproof and convenient. Once the baby wears the diaper, mothers become restless for 7 to 8 hours and do any work without worrying.
But amidst this convenience of mothers, the child becomes very upset. Diapers cause rashes to the baby. But he cannot speak his mind. In such a situation, he either gets irritable, gets upset and keeps on crying. Although it is also true that in view of today’s time, it is also necessary for the child to wear diapers. But before wearing a diaper, it is very important for mothers to know some things, so that the child does not have any kind of problem.

Usually, mothers wear diapers while taking the child out of the house or while sleeping. In such a situation, the child keeps wearing a diaper for about 7 to 8 hours. While he should not wear the diaper for more than 4 hours. Whenever you remove the diaper after 4 hours, clean its body with the help of cotton and leave it without diaper for some time.
