Before changing disposable nappies, make sure you have everything you need within reach. This includes a fresh nappy, baby cream, baby wipes or washcloths, and some water.
Lay baby down on a changing mat. If she grizzles, sing her a song or offer her a favourite toy. If you’re using a change table, always keep your hands on baby so she doesn’t fall.
Undress baby’s bottom half and unfasten the nappy. Have a spare cloth handy in case baby wees. Use the front of the nappy to wipe off any poo, then fold the nappy tightly to stop spills.
