When I change diaper for my son I saw some soft crystal looking ball, what is that?

I saw that couple of times, but didn't think much of it. What are they? Is that from oiment? I used A+D or aquaphor

  • It's the absorption material from the inside of the diaper.

  • MrsMWF is right it is the diaper. Nothing to worry about. It happens when the diaper gets wet.

  • Diaper stuffing. Harmless on the skin, less so if ingested.

  • I was perplexed the first time I saw that stuff, too. For a minute there, my imagination was thinking my kid had ingested a bunch of jellyfish eggs . . . . :)

  • Try to change him more often. When diapers get over-full they explode a little.
