Before changing a nappy, make sure you have everything you need within reach of the change area. This includes a fresh nappy, baby cream, baby wipes or washcloths, and some water.
Lie your baby down on the change table. If she grizzles, you might like to sing her a song or give her a favourite toy to keep her entertained. Always keep your hands on your baby so she doesn't fall.
Undress your baby’s bottom half, then undo the nappy. He might do a wee when he feels the cooler air, so have a spare cloth handy. Use the front of the nappy to wipe off any poo, then fold the nappy into a tight bundle to stop spills.
