Before changing a nappy, make sure you have everything you need within arm’s reach of the change area. This includes a fresh nappy, baby cream (if needed), baby wipes or washcloths, and some water.
Lie baby down on the change table. If she grizzles, sing her a song or give her a favourite toy to keep her entertained.
Undress baby’s bottom half and unfasten the nappy. Cooler air on the skin might make baby wee, so be ready with a cloth. Use the front of the nappy to wipe off any poo, then fold the nappy into a tight bundle to stop spills.
