A Diaper must be highly absorbent and fit the baby in a snug and comfortable manner. Most importantly, it must suit your baby's delicate skin and not cause those painful rashes that make her irritable.
Tape diapers can start sagging and flip open on one side during an older baby's playtime. Baby diaper pants on the other hand have an elastic waistband that moves with the baby and does not cause an uncomfortable tightness around the waist.
