Most babies will use between three to 10 diapers every day, meaning new parents can go through 2,000 to 3,000 diapers per year until their little ones are potty trained. In order to ensure that you're ready for every diaper change, it's important that you stay stocked up on diapers and diapering supplies. Walgreens makes it easy to purchase everything that you need to keep your baby clean and dry. You can explore our full selection of diapering products online or visit your nearest Walgreens to pick up the essentials today.
Selecting the Right Diapers
Many parents prefer to use disposable diapers because they are easy to use and discard. When shopping for disposable diapers, it's important to choose the size that's right for your baby.
Diapers for newborns typically have a snug fit that helps little ones feel swaddled and secure.
Options for older babies are cut higher along the legs to help little ones move more freely.
Toddlers can transition to pull-up diapers and training pants that assist with potty training.
Sizing for diapers is determined by weight. You can check out the product descriptions to find out which size is right for your child. Then, you can compare extra features, the quantities of diapers available in each package and the price to find the best diapers for your needs.
Caring for Baby's Skin
Skin care is an important part of diapering. Each time that you change your baby's diaper, you should wipe the bottom clean to remove impurities. Baby wipes make it easy to cleanse the diaper area. These pre-moistened towelettes can be used once and then thrown away, making them ideal for home and on-the-go use. If your baby's skin becomes irritated, you can apply a diaper cream recommended by your pediatrician. Some diaper creams can also be used daily to reduce the risk of diaper rash.
Solutions for Diaper Disposal
Dealing with dirty diapers can be a hassle, but there are ways to make the process easier. Diaper disposal systems keep dirty and wet diapers neatly contained and help to control odors. These systems typically use disposable liners that can be purchased separately at Walgreens. Travel diaper disposal bags are also available for diapering on the go.
Diapering the Green Way
If you're concerned about the effects of disposable diaper waste, there are green alternatives available to suit your eco-friendly philosophy. Some diapers are made from recycled materials that have a lower environmental impact than conventional disposables. You can also purchase reusable cloth diapers with biodegradable inserts. These diapers limit waste while allowing for easy cleaning.
