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.

Love pampers

Absolutely swaddlers are a little more big than baby dry, although I love both my baby preferred baby dry since his skin is sensitive. Another three no I wanted to share is that I play with my bundle of joy while I change his diaper & he loves it. Whenever my mom helps me change him he tries to play with my mom it seems like he really enjoys his diaper changes lol

LOVE THEM

We love swaddlers and have tried the baby dry. I do think the baby dry fits tighter than the swaddlers so our little one will outgrow the baby dry before the swaddlers. Also distractions are what keeps her from trying to roll over every time!

Thanks
