One brilliant way to keep your active toddler comfortable and happy

It's not that easy to keep a super-active toddler comfortable in our humid tropical weather, But there is one way to do this, as you will learn in this article.

To a mother, keeping her child free from discomfort is of utmost importance even before he is born. So when she is pregnant, she gives herself only the best nourishment so that her baby benefits nutritionally too — even though she might have cravings for donuts and ice-cream.

And after her baby is born, we all know the effort a mum puts into keeping her little one comfortable, happy and safe. It doesn’t stop there though, because these efforts change according to her child’s development and ever-evolving needs.

The needs of an infant in relation to ensuring maximum comfort and happiness are quite different to those of a busy little toddler.

Take clothes, for example. An infant is most comfortable in snap-on onesies. But onesies may not be so practical for a toddler who, with his constantly developing motor skills, will be able to ‘un-snap’ himself in a flash – certainly not so comfy anymore!

Another example is diapers. The diaper needs of an active toddler greatly differ to those of a younger, calmer baby.

Toddlers are such busy, active little beings. How do you make sure they stay comfy despite all the action?

Busy-body toddlers: Why a proper diaper is so important

From the moment your toddler starts to walk, his excitement to explore his little world just can’t be contained. So, he walks, runs, jumps, skips and hops on a new adventure of discovery every single day.

This increased mobility and never-ending energy means he plays and runs around so much that he’s often covered in perspiration — from head-to-toe in our tropical heat.

The discomfort factor is further increased when he poos and pees in his diaper. A poor quality diaper will trap moisture against your toddler’s bottom, causing his skin to be prone to irritation and diaper rash. In fact, dressing a toddler in an ill-fitting uncomfortable diaper can hinder his urge to run around and explore, which in turn can have an impact on his development.

For these reasons, it’s so important that you choose your toddler’s diaper very carefully. A good diaper should have exceptional breathability and good absorbency. Both of these features reduce heat and moisture trapped, minimizing skin discomfort and irritation.

Two more important features that a diaper suitable for a toddler should have are softness and a comfortable fit. Both will allow freedom of movement without leaving red marks or abrasions on his tender skin.
