Diapering your baby can be crucial for new mothers; it could be difficult to hold, let alone push or pull the tiny weeny creature who looks and feels fragile. However, every mother (and even fathers) must master the art of diapering a baby – which by all means is as essential as feeding and sleeping. You also would be facing the dilemma of whether using diapers is safe for the baby – well, this is a decision of choice, and we feel diapering is a good way to go as long as the baby and you are happy with it. We hope based on your preferences and choices, you have made the decision between cloth and disposable diapers. The method for changing the diapers will be almost the same, whether you are using disposable or cloth diapers. Before we move to discuss the correct way of diapering a baby, let us discuss a few basic points which will make this job easier. Firstly make sure you maintain a good stock of diapers if you are using the disposable ones. Your baby might need 8-10 diapers per day or even more, in the initial months. Try to keep everything within reach, since it is not suggested to leave the baby unattended. For instance if your baby poops in the diaper you may need wet wipes, cotton, warm water to clean it etc. You need to regularly change the diaper of a new born after every few hours (which will depend on your baby’s peeing intervals and diaper’s capacity). Ensure that you place the baby on a safe and secure place. If you use a table do not forget to buckle the strap properly.
