Shop consultants or pharmacies will be able to help with the choice, but it's worth noting that when choosing between the first and second sizes of a diaper for a newborn,it is better to give preference to the second number.

When shopping, pay attention to the integrity of the packaging. Do not buy diapers, packaging which has a violation. Through the holes microbes and dirt get inside, and they lose their sterility. Unpacking all items in advance is undesirable because of possible contamination and loss of sterility.
Important: for babies of the first month of life, use diapers only in a package that has not been previously broken.

We take 15-20 pampers each, fold them as shown in the photo so that we have a circle. We intercept it with an elastic band, evenly distribute diapers.
We insert diaper tubes inside this circle. This is necessary for filling tiers.
We form three “cakes” of various diameters.
The place where each circle is intercepted by a rubber band should be hidden. To do this, we will use tapes.
We encircle each circle with ribbons, we sew together so as to form bows. Sew a bead on the bow.
On each "cake" we make different decor of ribbons. The edges of the ribbons should be burned so that they do not get frayed quickly, do not lose their appearance.
We wrap the cardboard rectangle with paper, fix it with adhesive tape from the bottom side. Put the cake on a cardboard tray.
We place a toy or suspension on top.
Wrap the cake in clear paper. At the edges, this wrap is fixed with pieces of scotch.
We decorate transparent paper with ribbons on top as well. Pampers cake on the newborn's discharge is ready!

We design each of the cars with blue and blue satin ribbons, we attach bows behind. Finally, we glue decorative muzzle buttons.
