A newborn baby is like a ray of sunshine in the lives of their parents and family. This is the case with Stella. She is a new addition to our family. She is a bundle of joy and we love her to bits! Of course, babies come with a lot of things – baby diapers, winter gloves, clothes, and whatnot. When Stella was born we had no idea that there were items that would prove useful for raising a baby.
Bummies for babies are the first things to make when you know that you have a baby on the way. Bummies are an essential part of baby care. They are handy for keeping the little ones comfortable and warm at all times. Bummies are lightweight, soft, and convenient. They are the perfect “first” diaper for your baby’s sensitive skin.
How To Make Bummies For Babies – Step By Step Guide
Read the following procedure step by step to make a bummy for your baby
First, cut off the tabs of the diaper to avoid choking hazards for your baby. Then cut the diaper in half lengthwise to make two square pieces. Fold both sides into one another so that you have a square, then tightly roll it up starting from one end.
Stuffing time! Take a piece of newspaper and crumple it up into a ball as small as you can get it. Remember to make sure this is double folded so that there are no sharp edges. Use your other hand to squeeze the air out of the newspaper ball, then flatten it out again (you want to make sure there are no pockets of air left in them). Take a tablespoon and fill the paper ball with sand or rice until it becomes even all around. If you think about it, a tablespoon of sand weighs more than a tablespoon of rice. Use your hands to shape the sand into a log shape, making sure they become rounded at both ends – just like the diapers!
Putting on the diaper part is pretty straightforward. Place one diaper strip side up and put two tablespoons worth of sand onto the center then fold the sides toward the center. Fold it in half, then twist both ends of the diaper toward each other. Take a diaper pin and stick one end into the center of the twisted part, then push it all the way through to create a tight seal. The other end should be sticking out already, so just stick that through as well to make it secure.
Now you can tie your bummer onto your baby! You might need someone to help you if they are wiggly or distracted by their favorite toy at this stage – you wouldn’t want to prick them with those sharp edges if it’s not properly tied on! Don’t give up hope even if it takes several tries before your child starts cooperating. Sometimes they do need to see it in action before they show you how well they can cooperate.
Wadala! Your baby is now wearing his very own bummer, just like at the hospital! Of course, there are no clips to snap together but that doesn’t mean it’s not worth keeping for special occasions like Halloween Thanksgiving, or Christmas! You can also use them when traveling or visiting friends & family who have little ones – sometimes you want to pitch in and help out while sharing stories!
A baby’s skin is thin and sensitive. And the sun can cause severe burns. It is best to avoid exposing babies under six months of age to direct sunlight. A lot of people put much effort into selecting the best sun hat for babies, clothes, and bummiesthathcovers them from direct UV rays.
Benefits And Disadvantages Of Using Bummies
Advantages of Bummies
Did you know that bummies can save you more money than diapers? Bummies are designed to hold a maximum of 12 hours of urine, making them the ideal choice for overnight use. Just like other baby diapers, Bummies come with a range of features to ensure comfort for your baby all day long: soft inner surface, fast absorption capacity, and LeakGuard protection.
Disposable diapers are a major source of waste in the United States. Environmentally friendly products are in demand among consumers, especially mothers with young children. One such way is by switching from disposables to baby clothes, also known as “reusable” or “cloth diapers” or “bummy”.
No – Rashes
A study has revealed that baby bummies don’t cause rashes. It was noted that the skin irritation was caused by disposables. The bummies are helpful for babies and will reduce the skin-rash problem.
Disadvantages of Bummies
You have to wash bummies by hand or in a machine. That’s a major drawback of it for busy parents.
