Can you imagine how uncomfortable it must be for our kids to be in diapers 24/7? They’re hardly out of a diaper save for their daily bath and diaper changes. Diapers aren’t as thin as underwear. And they’re filled with pee and poop—not exactly the best experience.
With two-year-old twins, I see the difference a comfortable diaper can make. You can tell when they’re uncomfortable: They walk like they’re straddling a horse. They push down on the sides of their diapers. And of course they wince with every wipe when they get a diaper rash.
Thankfully, you can keep your baby comfortable in diapers with the following tips:
Change diapers regularly.
We’ve all had to remove the the heavy diaper that seems to weigh five pounds. Before it gets to that point, change your child’s diaper regularly. Change them in intervals, like every three hours. Or include diaper changes in your routine, such as before nap times. Changing diapers throughout the day ensures your child isn’t in a soiled diaper for too long.
Use the right size.
Find the right diaper size for your child to make sure he’s comfortable. A too-tight diaper often means squeezing in too much. A too-big diaper leads to leaks. Each brand is different, so rely on the weight recommendations each one suggests.
Take your time putting on a diaper.
Wrangling a wailing baby or a toddler in a tantrum isn’t easy, for sure. Sometimes you just need to get that diaper on. But in general, put your baby’s diaper on carefully. Make sure it’s centered with his body and that the straps aren’t too loose or tight. Keep it snug but comfortable around the hips.
Apply diaper cream.
The minute I see even the slightest chance of a rash, I apply diaper cream liberally. The cream prevents a rash from spreading and keeps my kiddos comfortable. And if your child already has a rash, diaper cream makes it go away much faster than without.
I had the pleasure of trying Member’s Mark Comfort Care diapers this past week and couldn’t be happier. Sold at your local Sam’s Club, Member’s Mark Comfort Care diapers are excellent for delicate skin. They’re hypoallergenic and have no perfumes or latex that could irritate your child’s skin.
They’re also breathable, perfect for avoiding sweaty or rashy skin. And you know how some newborn diapers have those lines in the front that change color when it has pee? Member’s Mark Comfort Care diapers still have that useful feature in all sizes.
The design allows your child to move without leaks, thanks to locking away wetness. And my favorite part—they’re soft throughout, both the interior and exterior. No uncomfortable paper-material here! With 12-hour overnight protection, you can use them both day and night. And they’re made with safety, sustainability, and responsible sourcing practices.

Our young kids don’t have the luxury of going straight to thin undies that you and I wear. They can’t pee or poop in the toilet just yet. In the meantime, these tips will keep your baby comfortable in diapers.
