There are plenty of diaper brands on the market that offer varying functionalities and sizes, but Huggies recently added a new and more rare type of diaper to its collection -- one that is specifically designed for premature babies.
There are many important functions of these diapers, the first being that they are small enough to fit babies that weigh two pounds or less. As the larger and more traditional diaper designs on the market tend to be irritating to the fragile skin on premature babies, these Huggies diapers were designed specifically to be gentle on skin. They are also shaped with a flexible and narrow absorbent pad so that the baby is able to move around and rest in a fetal position with ease.
Miniature diapers are rare due to the fact that premature babies at this weight are highly uncommon, but Huggies is making them accessible for those that are in this situation and require resources to maintain their health and comfort.
