The history of the first diapers

The appearance of disposable diapers radically changed the lives of modern mothers. The stories about gauze-cotton diapers, in which they were already packed by their mothers, seem to them to be horror stories.

The story of the collapse of gauze diapers

Even 10-15 years ago, residents of the post-Soviet space in child care as diapers used gauze, folded in several layers. In order for such a diaper to hold onto the child, it was often pinned up with a pin, which threatened injury as a result of inadvertently unbuttoning this pin. Add to this the fact that the diaper had the property of getting wet, and the child had to change it every half hour. And this - and the additional cries of the crumbs because of discomfort, and the constant fatigue of the mother because of the lack of sleep at night.

The appearance on the shelves of pharmacies disposable diapers sent gauze counterparts in the dustbin of history. Comfortable, lightweight and practical diapers very quickly became popular with moms and today have become almost indispensable thing in every home,where there is a little baby.

For children with very sensitive skin, the company offers the position of Libero Everyday. This company is one of the few who created unique diapers to teach a child to the pot.

The first diapers came up with a grandfather

The first diapers were not invented by pediatricians. Their "parent" is rightfully considered to be an American chemical technologist, Victor Mills. Becoming a grandfather, he decided to help his daughter in caring for her grandchildren. Washing and stroking the diaper, the scientist puzzled over how to facilitate this painstaking process. At one of such moments a brilliant idea came to him - to create disposable diapers, which could not be washed, but thrown away after use.

Without thinking, he created a team of several employees. And all together they embarked on the realization of the idea that was born.

The prototype of a classic disposable diaper has become a folded gasket that can absorb liquid placed in plastic pants.

The first experimental were grandchildren, of course. Assessing the promise of the invention, Mills releases the first experimental batch of diapers, which, however, almost failed the author’s ingenious plan.The heat that fell at the time of testing in Dallas, and this is neither more nor less than +32 degrees Celsius, was not the most favorable period. Butts babies in new diapers covered with diaper rash and irritation. Moms made a fuss over the innovation. That was in 1956.

Fortunately, modern moms, the first failure did not break the fuse of the team, work on the improvement of diapers continued, and in 1959 a new batch of diapers was released in the amount of 37 thousand pieces. These diapers were much softer, fastened with Velcro and buttons.
