1.Prepare the space
designate an area as your diaper changing station. Set up your changing table/pad if you have one. If you are not equipped with a changing table, you can set up your changing station by laying down a swaddle or blanket.
2.Place your baby
Always place your baby on their back.
3.Remove the dirty diaper
For disposable diapers, pull up the sticky tabs. For reusable cloth diapers, remove the diaper cover and snaps or Velcro from around your baby's waist.
4.Clean the area
Use the diaper to clean as much of the area as you can. Lift the legs and clean baby's front well with warm water or wipes, being sure to get into all the creases. Then lift both legs and clean baby's bottom thoroughly.Always wipe from front to back to avoid infection, especially for girls.
5.Discard the dirty diaper
We recommend getting a diaper pail because you will be going through a LOT of diapers.
6.Apply ointment or cream
If the area is red or inflamed, use any products your doctor has recommended for rashes.
7.Put on the new diaper
Pull the front of the diaper over your baby's belly and pull the tabs open and around to close the diaper.
8.Dress your baby
you may find that your baby needs a different outfit than before diaper changing .
