  • Before my baby arrived, I had a lot of questions about diapers--

  • how to change a diaper, how often and then when to change a diaper, choosing

  • the right diaper.

  • What about changing when we're out and about?

  • I was fortunate to have some experienced moms help me back then,

  • and I quickly learned that.

  • Diaper time was special-- a time to sing and talk and tell stories.

  • After all, I had a captive audience and he seemed to like my singing.

  • It was a great opportunity to bond and spend time together.

  • I thought I'd share some tips based on my experience and then advice from

  • others to help other new moms like me.

  • Changing a diaper can be tricky at first but you'll have the hang of it

  • in no time.

  • First, set up the changing space and make sure you have everything you need

  • nearby but out of the reach of your baby.

  • You'll need diapers and wipes handy.

  • Unfold the clean diaper and set it to one side.

  • Lay your baby down on the changing space.

  • Make sure you keep one hand on your little one so they are secure and keep

  • everything out of their reach to avoid accidents or messes.

  • Pull off their shoes and socks and make sure that all of their clothes

  • are pulled up and out of the way.

  • Open the dirty diaper and gently lift the baby up, holding

  • your baby by the ankles.

  • Gently clean the genital area from the front to back with a quality baby

  • wipe, making sure you clean between all folds of skin.

  • Carefully lift baby again by the ankles and place the new diaper

  • underneath.

  • Position the diaper the right way around.

  • The back has Velcro tabs and the front will typically have a

  • colorful belt on it.

  • Next, place the front of the diaper on baby's belly, peel open the Velcro

  • tabs, and place them down on the colorful belt in a straight line.

  • Make sure the diaper isn't too tight or too loose around the tummy.

  • You should be able to slide two fingers into the diaper so your little

  • one has room to breathe and move freely.

  • This diaper has stretchy sides and readjustable fasteners so that you can

  • open and close again as well as stretchy leg cuffs to help you get the

  • perfect fit.

  • Throw away the old diaper by folding it with the mess inside and use the

  • sticky tabs to seal it up.

  • Redress your little one and watch both your hands.

  • You're all done.

  • Diapers should be changed whenever baby has gone pee or poo.

  • A good rule of thumb is to change your new baby's diaper approximately every

  • two hours, which should include right before or right after every feeding,

  • before bedtime, and when your baby wakes up.

  • It can be daunting at first, but you'll be a diaper change pro and

  • sharing your own tips in no time.

  • Just remember, there are three things to look for in a quality diaper.

  • You want a diaper that keeps baby's skin dry by locking away wetness, has

  • super stretchy sides for a comfortable fit when baby moves, and are made of

  • soft cottony materials that let baby's skin breathe and wrap them in comfort

  • and security.
