For a new born baby, the time for a change can come all too often, sometimes hourly during baby’s waking hours. But as tedious a chore as it can be for both baby and you, frequent changing is the best way to avoid irritation and diaper rash on baby’s sensitive bottom. If you are using disposable diaper, you won’t be able to use wetness as a guess; since they absorb so well; disposable don’t feel wet until they are seriously saturated. To ensure a change for the better whenever you change your baby’s diaper.
How To Change Baby Diaper?
- Before you begin to change a diaper, be sure everything you need is at hand, either on the changing table or if you are away from home, in your diaper bag. Otherwise, you could end up removing a messy diaper only to find out you have nothing to clean the mess with.
- Wash and dry your hands before you begin, if possible or give them a once over with a diaper wipe.
- Have baby entertainment available, live or otherwise. Live shows can be provided by the diaper changer or by siblings, parents or friends on hand.
- Spread a protective cloth diaper or a changing cloth if you are changing baby anywhere but on a changing table. Wherever you make the change, be careful not to leave the baby unattended, not even for a moment.
- Unfasten the diaper, but don’t remove it yet. First, survey the scene. If there is a bowel movement, use the diaper to wipe most of it away, keeping the diaper over the penis as you work if your baby is a boy. Now fold the diaper under the baby with unsoiled side up to act as a protective surface and clean baby’s front carefully with warm water or a wipe.
- If you are using cloth diaper, they are mostly refolded and ready to use. But you may have to fold them further until your baby is a bit bigger. The extra fabric should be in the front for boys and the back for girls.
- Dispose of diaper in sanitary fashion. When possible, drop any formed stool into the toilet. Used paper diapers can be folded over, and tied in a plastic bag for disposal in a trash can.
- Change the baby’s clothing and/or bed linen as needed. Wash your hands with soap and water, when possible, or clean them with a diaper wipe.
