Choosing the right size diaper is crucial to ensure your baby stays comfortable and dry. However, with so many different sizes and brands on the market, it can be challenging to make the best choice. In this blog, we provide you with handy tips and guidelines to choose the correct diaper size based on your baby’s weight. By following these tips, you can be sure that your baby is comfortable and protected from leaks and skin irritations!

Diaper size based on weight

The size of a diaper depends on the weight of the child. The heavier the child, the larger the diaper size needed. As the child grows, the amount of waste will also increase. Note that the average price per diaper of larger sizes is higher than that of smaller sizes.

Diaper sizes available

There are various diaper sizes available, and the size that fits your baby depends on your baby’s weight and length. Generally, these are the sizes and their corresponding weight classifications:

Magics FlexiDry T1 Newborn, 2 – 5 kg
Magics FlexiDry T2 Mini, 4 – 8 kg
Magics FlexiDry T3 Midi, 6 – 10 kg
Magics FlexiDry T4 Maxi, 9 – 14 kg
Magics FlexiDry T5 Junior, 11 – 16 kg
Magics FlexiDry T6 XL, 15+ kilos

How to know when a diaper fits well?

To ensure that the diaper works well, it is important to choose the right size. A diaper that is too large does not fit well, leading to leaks, while a diaper that is too small can cause discomfort, skin irritations, and fills up quickly. Therefore, it is advisable to always check the packaging to see if the size of the chosen diaper matches your child’s weight.

Diaper packaging indicates the size with a number and a name. For example, size 2 is known as mini, size 3 as midi, size 4 as maxi, and so on. The tricky part is that sizes from different brands may vary, making it confusing at times. For instance, size 3 from Pampers is recommended for children between 5 and 9 kilograms. For Magics FlexiDry diapers a size 3 is for 6 – 10 kilograms.
