What Brands/types are available for New Born Baby Diapers in India?
At the time of my first pregnancy I was living in Tokyo. Many people told me there is big difference in quality in same brand in India and Overseas. When I came to India for delivery, I brought one big packet of Pamper’s Newborn Diapers. It was 4 years back.
For my second delivery in India I had no choice but to use whatever available in India.
I used only home-made cotton nappies for nearly first 4-5 months for both my sons. But still you cannot skip diapers. You have to have a little stock of diapers even if you decide not to use them.
In my recent experience, even the diapers available in India have improved the quality a lot and now you don’t see much rash problems or discomfort, off course if used with proper care.
Strangely my second son was not comfortable with the type and brand my first son was comfortable in. So I had to try different brands and finally settled with one for my second kid.
You may not see all types and brands of diapers available in any single shop. In same brands also they have varieties.
I thought it might help new mothers to know what brands and types of diapers are available in India. So here is the list of all types of diapers available in India for a newborn. Prices may differ at different locations, below mentioned prices are to give you just idea.

Diapers are a costly affair. Once you finalise a brand and type for a certain period for your baby, your next target will be to look for some cheap source. I buy diapers online whenever some offer is going on. You may subscribe to some top online baby shops so you would receive the EMAIL/SMS for their offers and you can buy in bulk. You can save money and time in this way.
