Baby Care: Perfecting the Art of Diaper-Changing

Moms with small babies spend a lot of time changing diapers. Check out some tips and tricks that help make changing a breeze.

Diaper-changing is one of the most fundamental baby-care techniques to master. Try these mom-tested tips to streamline and improve the diapering process.

Preparation makes perfect
Minimize the time your baby will have to be uncomfortable by keeping all the necessary changing goods (diapers, wipes, bags for dirty diapers) close at hand.

Go double duty
A great trick some moms use to catch any unexpected spillage is to place a clean diaper underneath their baby before removing the dirty one. Any ways to limit the mess are always good to consider.

Chat him up
Tell your baby what you're doing ¾ hearing your voice will keep him calm and distract him from what's happening. Changing time can actually be great bonding time too. Instead of thinking of diaper changes as an unpleasant chore, slow down, take a breath and start a conversation with your baby.

Make it fun
Entertain your baby while putting on a fresh diaper by placing something eye-catching near your changing spot. A colorful toy, or one that sparkles or sings, is a good option.

With these smart strategies in place, you'll be able to make diaper duty less of a chore and more of a bonding experience for both you and your baby.

I'd never thought of the double duty tip. Might use that sometime.

as a new parent we have tried just about every diaper brand out there & none of them compare to pampers!!

Great Advice


These are all great tips for diaper changing. One I would love help with is changing my little one at night. She always wants to roll over on her side. Changing a diaper on the side is so challenging.

When my son was a newborn I put a stand up rattle that has a motion sensor light within his grasp. So while I changed his diaper he reached for the rattle and it changed colors. He loved it! Now that he's older he wants down!
