Types of Diapers in Kenya
The following are the most popular types of baby diapers in Kenya:
a) Cloth diapers
Cloth diapers are simply washable/re-usable pampers made using pieces of cloth/fabric.
They not only cut on costs (you don’t have to keep buying) but they are also more eco-friendly (because you can re-use it).
b) Disposable diapers
Unlike cloth-made pampers, disposable diapers are not re-usable ….they are instead designed to be tossed away after just one use.
c) Organic diapers
On the other hand, organic diapers are simply diapers produced using distinct eco-friendly materials such as wood, pulp, etc.
With that short explanation out of the way, let’s now proceed to the types of pamper brands in Kenya.
