    Everyone knows that changing a soiled diaper is necessary but moms and dads often avoid changing the free size reusable cloth diaper after every pee. This is a wrong practice. It is necessary to keep the babies clean and dry all the time to avoid any sort of skin infection, rashes, or eczema. Free Size reusable diapers can absorb only one episode of pee and your baby will need the change every time he/she pees.

    Newborns pee more often than the toddlers and you must change their diaper every 2 hours. With toddlers, you can stretch it to 2-4 hours as they wet less frequently. That means that on average you will need to change your baby 7-10 times a day.

    How to know when the free size reusable cloth diaper is wet?

    Unlike disposable diapers, free size reusable cloth diapers don’t give you ‘it’s time to change’ signs. Neither they turn squishy nor they have the little color-changing line that indicates that your baby has peed. However, the following tips will help you to understand when you need to replace your baby’s free size reusable cloth diaper.

    ● The free size reusable cloth diapers come with absorbent inserts or soakers. They usually last for 2-3 hours for normal wetting little ones. But you must change the free size reusable cloth diaper before if it is wobbling or hanging low.

    ● Touch the outer surface of the free size reusable cloth diaper to check whether it is wet or not if you haven’t used the waterproof linings. If it’s wet, it’s time to change it.

    ● Free size reusable cloth diapers are made of cotton which gets stiff when wet. Squeeze the cloth and feel. You will know that it is time to change the diaper if the hemp or bamboo inserts are bunched together.

    ● Free size reusable diapers are a snug fit around the legs and they don’t give any room for the poop to escape. Rather than opening it straight or poking your finger to check whether the diaper is wet or not, it is always better to take a peek from behind.

    You may not like them but frequent diaper changes are important to prevent rashes or skin irritation. Mylo Essentials Free Size Reuseable Cloth Diapers are super-absorbent and possess antibacterial properties. They are perfect to make your baby feel comfortable while at home. They are adjustable, skin-friendly and easy to wash. What more could you ask for.
