LEARN CHANGE BABY DIAPERS EFFICIENLY
When the first time baby born and already bact at home, the diapers is one
of important think to change each time the baby urinate or feces. The baby will
need so much diapers, this is more for boys than for girls. That's why the parent
should know and lern how to change the diapers in efficiently, because the faster
you learn to change the diapers, the less time you will spend for doint this
Bellow is the short course to change diapers :
- Get everything you need ready before you start : fresh diaper, warm wipes,
and a new outfit (mostly for the baby but you might need one too if things
get messy enough).
- Find yourself a nice, flat place to do the job. Changing tables-- or any
other sturdy table -- are great. Some changing tables come with straps for
holding the baby secure, but don't rely on them -- make sure you keep at least
one hand on your baby at all times. Newborns are surprisingly strong -- and
clever too -- and she'll pick the precise second you chose to turn around
to propel herself over the edge. The floor is probably the safest spot since
there's no possibility of the baby falling, but it can be hard on the back.
- Undress the baby enough to slip the legs out. Be sure to take the baby's
socks, if any, off. Babies love to kick their legs around while they're being
changed and have an uncanny ability to drag their feet through their own poop.
- Lay the baby face up on the changing surface. Some babies absolutely love
having their diapers changed and are perfectly calm throughout the whole process.
Others will kick, squirm, bounce and scream. If your baby is less than thrilled
to be there, hanging a mobile right above the changing surface might provide
enough distraction for you to do what you need to do.
- Open a clean diaper and place it underneath the baby. Then, unfasten the
old one, lift the baby's bottom up by lifting her ankles, and pull the dirty
diaper out. Be sure to immediately cover the baby's genitals with a towel
or diaper. This isn't for modesty purposes; it's to keep you dry when the
sudden rush of fresh air on your baby's crotch causes him or her to spray
- Clean the bottom and genitals well, if there's a clean spot on the old
diaper, use that to make a first pass. For girls, wipe from front to back
to minimize the possibility of infection-causing bacteria getting into the
vagina. For boys, clean under the scrotum. Keep a gentle but firm grip on
your baby's ankles until you're through with step 8.
- Put on diaper rash cream, but only if you really need to. Skip the lotions
for the first few weeks (again, too harsh) and never, ever use powders. Besides
being carcinogens, they can damage the lungs if inhaled.
- Slide a clean diaper under the baby and fold down the front edge so it
doesn't rub against the cord stump. If the baby pees or poops into the new,
clean diaper, repeat steps 4, 5 and 6.
- Fasten the diaper, snug but still loose enough so it doesn't pinch the
- Wash up, your hands and the baby's feet, if necessary. I've found that
keeping a bottle of hand sanitizer is great if you aren't near running water.
- Get the baby dressed. Changing diapers is an acquired skill. In just a
few days you'll be able to do it with your eyes closed. (On second thought...)
