How to Change a Baby’s Diaper



Let Babies 411 show you how to change a baby’s diaper.

Babies need frequent diaper changes to keep them comfortable and prevent diaper rashes. The best time to change your baby’s diaper is right before feeding time. This is good for several reasons. First, it helps wake your baby for the feeding. Next, it helps to prevent waking your baby after the feeding (what I like to call the “milk coma”). And finally, it helps avoid causing your baby to spit up once his/her belly is full.

Little girls should be wiped from front to back to prevent urinary tract infections. If your little boy was circumcised, be sure to apply an emollient (I like Earth Mama Angel Baby’s Baby Bottom Balm ) to his penis every diaper change to help prevent it from sticking to the diaper (Ouch!). This ointment also helps to soothe mild diaper rashes.

If your baby develops a diaper rash, avoid using commercial wipes since these can be irritating to the skin. Use a damp wash cloth and try not to rub too hard. For big poopy messes, rinse your baby’s bottom off in the sink or bathtub. Be sure to dry the area well (again, don’t rub…just pat gently). If you are brave enough, try leaving your baby’s diaper off for a bit. Fresh air is good for the hiney. Use a diaper rash cream of your choice to help clear up the rash. I like Earth Mama Angel Baby’s Baby Bottom Balm, but if this doesn’t do the trick, try a zinc-oxide based cream (I like triple paste because it works great and has a good safety rating from Skin Deep).
