(1)- Diapers are those ever so wonderful little things that have been around forever, and that are used on the bottoms of babies. They are the "catch all" apparel of any babies wardrobe or layette. Diapers, usually white in colour, rectangular in shape, and fashioned out of either a washable, or disposable type of material or fabric, are brought up between a baby's legs and fastened at the sides (near a baby's hips), with either safety pins (diaper pins), or sticky tabs, depending on which type of diapers one is using.
