Here are some tips for changing diapers for your baby:
- Drops diaper adhesive closures and fold back on themselves to sticking them not to adhere to the skin of the baby, but still not take away the dirty diaper.
- If any poo, wipe first with the nappy, taking care to cover the penis (if a child) with a towel for hygiene reasons and to avoid the “splatter” mentioned above.
- With one hand, hold the baby by the ankles and legs slightly crank lift a little ass. Although this gesture may seem a bit odd, is a very efficient way to do it.
- Fold down the middle and let the soiled diaper under the baby’s butt, with the dirt inside the diaper.
- Use a disposable towel or a washcloth baby wet cloth to gently clean baby’s genital area. Girls should wipe from front to back (in the opposite direction to her vagina). This will decrease the possibility of rectal bacteria entering the vagina that could cause an infection.
- Raise both legs of the baby and clean her bottom.
- Change the diaper clean the dirty one. Open the diaper and put the part that has adhesive closures under the baby’s butt. Now fold the bottom of baby’s tummy, passing between his legs (it apart legs as much as possible, but without hurting). If your baby has a tendency to irritation or diaper rash, you can put a sunscreen.
- Close the diaper sticking the adhesive strips on both sides. Make sure it’s snug but not so that it pinches his skin. Check the manufacturer’s instructions diaper for other tips specific to that brand.
Avoid talcum powder because it can irritate your baby’s lungs.
