It's here subscription baby diaper revolution and this is notably the great strength of the brand Little Big Change (LBC) for short. Changes sent automatically, accompanied by a range of very gentle cleansing care products for babies.
The baby diaper subscription revolution
900 days is the average time your little one will wear diapers . Reduced to years, the figure transforms into a little less than 2 ½ years . It's long and that's a lot of diapers that you have to think about buying.
A quick calculation with an average of 5 layers per day for 900 days therefore brings us to approximately 4,500 layers with all that this dizzying figure of omissions and failures entails. However, when it is essential, you might as well have the necessary equipment always at hand.
This is where the subscription comes in! At Little Big Change, you can choose:
- The size of the diapers,
- the first delivery date,
- the frequency of delivery.
No more Sundays without diapers when the supermarket is closed, no more running out of stock when you just need plenty of diapers for a long journey... in short no more shortages . You receive, directly at home, the sufficient number of diapers of the right size and this, thanks to a 100% flexible subscription, 100% adapted to your child.
Healthy diapers for all babies
900 days is also a fantastic number of hours locked up for baby's bottom. Fortunately, brands have realized that it is high time to offer healthy and eco-responsible diapers to families.
And presto, they gave birth to changes without harmful substances designed from carefully selected materials , just like our silicone baby bottles Elhée.
The diaper, an essential support towards autonomy
Just like there is no age to be potty trained, there is also no recommended age to use diapers. They still become more interesting when baby seriously begins to squirming on his changing table . His enthusiastic kicks barely miss you. Fixing the diaper while keeping one hand on him becomes a real challenge. Half the time, the fixing system is not correctly attached or, on the contrary, much too tight. No doubt, it is time for you and especially for your child to switch to diapers.
The main difference that makes this disposable baby underwear so interesting? A wide elastic waistband soft and supple , for good support of the diaper and great comfort of movement, a easy to put on and one quick withdrawal thanks to its tearable material. More than any other, the diaper can be easily put on and taken off, put on and taken off again [you get the idea] by the baby himself when he decides to make his first attempts on the potty.
Potty training, a sometimes complicated stage
For some children, and therefore for their happy parents, the transition to potty training is not simple. Concerns about this strange tool that is the pot or in passing on the toilet, but also anxiety of a process [peeing or pooping] which, suddenly, is no longer hidden in the diaper… learning to go to the toilet alone is not easy.
Around 24 months, sometimes before, sometimes after, but in any case during weeks which may seem long, the situation can be complicated and lead to more or less systematic crying, especially when going to the nursery. saddle. What parent has never spent a moment trying to distract their little one's attention or calm him down, by telling him a story, singing him a song, putting on a puppet show or even watching with him, a little one cartoon !
Please note: Toilet training started too early can lead to retention, constipation or urinary problems. Patience and stock of diapers are ultimately the best assets!
Baby is ready to go potty: signs to spot
If there are no rules when it comes to potty training, trusting and acting naturally might be one of them. Above all, rest assured! Even if he loves his diapers, your child will not keep them for life. Be patient, it is even likely that he will get tired of it before you do. As always, you'll learn the most by observing.
- More and more often, baby you warns you when his diaper is dirty .
- He does the difference between pee and poop
- He is agitated when filling his diaper and perhaps trying to hide.
- He anticipates his needs and makes you understand that he needs to go to the toilet .
If all these conditions are met, you can start potty training with confidence. Let's go…
Give yourself time and start again
… Or not. As with all learning throughout life, there can be ups and downs, easier times and more difficult times, sometimes even going backwards. Baby peed once on the potty and doesn't want to go again? Do not panic ! Leave the object of his annoyance clearly visible and let's go for a few days or weeks of diapers before trying the experiment again. We are talking, once again, about the importance of having stock.
During this little break, to encourage him or to “challenge” him as they say, show him an example by leveraging the effect of mimicry . At home, for example, leave the door open when you go to pee. There is also a legend which says that mothers of young children can never go to the little corner alone anyway… Who knows!
