1. Use Hyper-absorbent Nappies: Let's talk about absorption, surely one of our favourite topics. The truth: More absorption speed and capacity means less nappy rash. Why? Because wet bottoms ultimately irritate skin. But don’t worry - we’ve done the work for you: Spending months finding the highest absorbent materials and marrying them with the softest feel for babies’ bottoms. Trust us, it’s a game-changer. With Peachies, your baby stays dry and happy all day long, with less changing and more sh*ts and giggles.

2. Get Rid of the Harmful Chemicals: This should be a no-brainer but we mention it anyways: Don’t allow any chemicals on baby’s skin. We've seen the other nappies on the market, and let's be real,  not all of them meet our standards. Some are packed with unnecessary additives that can irritate delicate skin. Opt for nappies made from organic, chemical-free materials. If you’d like all the details about what should not be in a nappy, see our list here.

3. Regulate Temperature Down There: Ah, the eternal struggle of keeping your baby's nappy area at just the right temperature. But fear not, fellow parents, for breathable nappies and cotton onesies are here to save the day. It's like outfitting your little one in a cozy cocoon of comfort – minus the sweaty surprises.

4. Nappy-Free Time: Let's talk about the joys of nappy-free adventures. Setting up a nappy-free zone with a soft towel or waterproof mat is like inviting your baby to embrace their freedom – one wobbly step at a time. Plus, it's a chance for some adorable naked baby giggles.
