When choosing underwear for children (or for yourself), look for natural materials, keeping away from chemicals and dyes. If this sounds familiar, it’s because diapers and underwear are in constant contact with our most sensitive areas.
Synthetic fabrics can trigger chafing and redness. Nylon, polyester and spandex can trap heat and moisture, increasing the risk of irritation and infection. Yeast thrives in heat and moisture environments, so its important to allow the area to breathe and absorb any moisture.
What’s the best material for children’s underwear? Soft, comfortable, moisture-absorbing Cotton is the best underwear fabric! This is because cotton is breathable and wicks away moisture, making it perfect for underwear, as well as diapers! If you can't find cotton underwear, look for underwear with a cotton lining or a cotton crotch.
Cotton’s high tensile strength makes it durable and less likely to rip or tear. Cotton is also able to withstand the daily wash and wear cycles that kids clothing endures.
Avoid underwear that is too tight, as it can cause irritation as well as trap moisture and air between the skin and the fabric, putting your child at risk of an infection.
As underwear sits against your most sensitive skin for such long periods of time, its recommended to use hypoallergenic washing powder or liquid is to avoid irritation, itching or allergic reactions!
