Getting a tiny or wiggly baby all ready can be quite a juggling act! Here are some tips to make diapering an enjoyable experience for everyone.
It's important to choose a safe place to change your little one. Even belted onto the changing table, they can squirm right off, so always keep a hand on your baby. We put a stim-mobile above the changing table to keep our little one occupied during changing time.
When I change my daughter, we have a changing pad and everything I need in an area on the carpet. That way, I don't have to worry about my acrobatic daughter landing on the ground.
Before you actually change (or put on) the diaper, it's wise to have everything that you'll need handy and in a safe place (out of baby's reach).
Personally, I don't use powder (even when it's hot) since most baby powders seem to get powder everywhere (and we don't want baby to breathe that) and have cornstarch in them. The cornstarch can act as food for many types of bacteria (like the ones that cause yeast infections). Powdering is, however, up to you!
Here are my diapering tips, one step at a time.
