Recommendation

It is recommended to use cloth diaper at home and buy small pack of disposable diapers for traveling or for night time. You may also use cloth diapers for nights but it requires changing at every 2-3 hours so it is advisable to use disposable diaper so that baby’s sleep is not disturbed. You may buy approx 15-20 cloth diapers for your newborn and may wash at every alternate day.
