Which Diaper Brands Have a Wetness Indicator?

“Get a diaper with a wetness indicator”. This was the first advice I received when I started asking about which diaper brand I would buy for my new baby.

Why? It is a good idea to pay attention to how many wet and soiled diapers your newborn has each day. Frequent urination is a good indicator that a baby is getting enough milk or formula to thrive and grow. For this reason, many diaper brands have a wetness indicator.

How do wetness indicators work?

Overall, a wetness indicator changes when a diaper is wet. This indicates it is time for a diaper change.

Disclaimer, I’m not a scientist, I’m a Mom. I do not understand the complexities of WHY many things work, but just accept that they do.

In general, a wetness indicator reacts to moisture changing the line (or indicator) from yellow to blue. Moisture, not necessarily urine. Although, one article suggested that possibly the wetness indicator in some brands is based on the PH level changing the color on the diaper.
