Sitting in soiled nappies (diapers) is not healthy and encourages infections. Bladder infections and nappy rashes (diaper rash) are painful and can be avoided by encouraging your baby out of nappy use. It is much better and healthier to encourage your baby to use the Baby Throne and no longer need nappies (diapers) as soon as possible – especially by the time they start solids at about 6 months.
