There's no longer a need to put a cotton ball in your newborn's diaper. Many mothers have worried themselves sick about whether their infants were getting enough breast milk, and whether they were actually wetting their diapers. While we love that technology has allowed nappies to become more and more absorbent, it makes it very difficult to tell if they've been dampened.

Last week while attending the mommy blogger event at Pampers, 14 of us had the opportunity to test out the brand's indicator diapers ($47 for 136 diapers). A yellow indicator which stretches from the front to the back of the diaper turns green once the undergarment has been soiled. So skip the new-parent practice of tucking the square of toilet paper under your baby's bum.
