Nappy Changing

When it comes to baby changing times have really changed. With 5000 nappy changes between birth and potty training you need more than just a dustbin to dispose of dirty nappies.

Baby’s skin is very delicate and you will need to change your baby’s nappy frequently. You will be changing your baby approximately every 3 hours usually before or after a feed, or sooner if your baby has had a bowel movement as urine and faeces combined can make the skin very sore.

Before you start make sure you have everything ready:

  • A clean safe area
  • Clean nappy
  • Warm water and cotton wool ( you should use plain water and cotton wool to cleanse your baby’s skin for the first 4 weeks)
  • Barrier cream (if necessary)
  • Changes of clothes (if necessary)
