Changing Your Baby’s Diaper - How to Ace the Act
by Sonia Singh Hi Everyone, I am Sonia. I love to read and write
Your newborn baby needs lots of care and attention. Some
of the areas where babies need special attention include hourly change of
diapers and making sure the baby stays dry- and rash-free all the time. Let's
face it, changing diapers isn't the best parental duty you would want to
perform when you become a new parent. Sights of poop and an uncomfortable baby
can be mind-boggling at times.
Did you know that your baby could soil 10 diapers a day
and if not taken care of adequately, this can become the source of irritation
and discomfort for them? Fret not; here are some tips to
help you ace the act of changing your baby’s diaper.
1: Get the right sized diaper
Babies tend to grow in size very fast and you need to
change the diaper size accordingly. Sizes that don’t match can be uncomfortable
for the baby and may have the chance to leak.
2: Keep your hands clean
Always keep your hands clean while changing a baby’s
diaper as your baby can catch an infection
easily. It is best to wash your hands with soap, before and after a diaper
3: Lay down your baby
Always lay down your baby when you change their diaper.
This way it is more comfortable for the baby and the parents as well.
3: Slide the diaper away
Lift the baby’s bottom by gently grasping their ankle
while they are laying on their back. If the diaper is too full you will need
some wipes to clean up so that it does not spill on the bed or the surface
where the baby is laying. Baby skin can be very sensitive so make sure you use
some organic baby
wipes to protect your baby’s skin.
4: Wipe them clean
Now you should also know how to wipe a baby clean in the
correct way. When wiping a baby girl, always use the wipe front to back to
prevent any infection and wash thoroughly with water. When wiping a boy, wipe
clean around the scrotum area and wash with water.
5: Dispose of the dirty diaper
Always dispose of the dirty diaper and make sure to keep
it away from your baby to avoid a mess.
And voila! Your baby is ready for a fresh diaper!
Taking care of a baby is hard
work and requires some practice. However, it doesn’t take long before you
master it. As a final piece of advice, handle those tiny tots carefully, and
always use soft baby wipes to
prevent any rash.
