    diaper-changing routine

    Disposable-diaper-changing routine

    You’re going to do a lot of diaper changing over the next few months and years, so here’s a helpful diaper changing routine. Check it off and make every diaper change smooth like your baby’s bottom.

    • Set up a diaper changing station with everything  you need in arms reach. Diaper changing supplies might include: clean diapers; cotton balls; fragrance- and alcohol-free baby wipes; diapers creams; a diaper pail; a changing mat or clean towels.
    • If you’re using a changing table, keep your eyes on baby all the time—they can wriggle a lot even when they are small.
    • Use this time to engage with your baby. Singing or chatting to your baby can help to soothe and calm them.
    • Always keep at least one hand on your baby to prevent a fall.
    • Undo the dirty diaper. Fold it up and move it out of your baby’s reach.
    • Use warm water to clean your baby’s bottom using wet cotton balls, a single-use cloth, or a baby wipe. Wipe front to back for a girl, back to front for a boy.
    • Pat your baby’s bottom dry with the towel.
    • Gently lift your baby’s legs with one hand and put the clean diaper (with the tabs at the back) under their bottom with the other.
    • Only use diaper cream if there is redness or a rash.
    • Fold the front of the diaper up to baby’s waist and fasten the tabs on the sides.
    • Wash and moisturize your hands after every diaper change.
