Weaknesses: Leaks easily, needs to be replaced more often, less practical, takes time because it requires washing and drying processes
Disposable diapers / diapers:

Weaknesses: Made from chemicals, so there is a risk of causing allergic reactions, requires more funds, cannot be reused, needs to be used with the right size so that it is not too tight or too big
Diapers themselves can be used at the age of newborns, the most important thing is the use of the right type, material and size of diapers which do not cause irritation and allergies to the child, often change the diaper so that it is not used too long, especially if it is full of tubs and chaps. children to be changed immediately, and get checked if signs appear such as diaper rash in the area around the diaper, the child becomes restless or easily fussy and others. If a newborn has not separated the umbilical cord, choose a diaper that has a special basin so that the umbilical cord is not covered by the diaper.
