Have everything you need to change diapers close at hand. So you won’t have to move or lose sight of your baby. Unhook the baby’s bodysuit and put it back on his chest.

  1. Remove the dirty layer

Once you are sure that baby has actually soiled his diaper, unclip the adhesive fasteners, lower the front part of the dirty diaper and carefully fold it over on itself. If baby pooped, remove some of it with the front of the diaper when you fold it up.

  1. Clean baby’s bottom

Do not suddenly remove the dirty diaper; Just slide it gently so that baby ends up on the changing table. Then carefully clean the baby’s bottom and apply a protective cream to prevent irritation.

  1. Unfold the clean layer

Lift baby by the ankles. Slide the clean, open, unfolded diaper under her buttocks to the level of the kidneys. The adhesive fasteners must be at the level of the navel. Center it well under the buttocks.

Spread the clean layer well. Pass the front part between baby legs and make sure it is at the same height as the rear part before closing the adhesive strips. Once closed, the layer should not wrinkle.


You and your baby will soon get into a groove, but these tips may be helpful as you find your way:

  • Follow your doctor’s instructions when caring for a healing circumcision and umbilical stump.
  • Take care not to make the diaper too tight. You want to avoid leaks, but a too-tight diaper can cause pressure on your baby’s stomach making him more likely to spit up. This is especially true after feedings.
  • If your baby has a rash that doesn’t clear up after a few days, or if he seems to be in a lot of pain and has skin that is red and raw in appearance, contact your pediatrician immediately.
  • Baby girls may also have discharge. This can be common.
  • You might also find urate crystals in the diaper. This sometimes happens from breastfeeding but can also be a sign of dehydration.
  • It can be helpful to always keep one hand on your baby when looking away or reaching for a clean diaper.
  • Never change or leave a dirty diaper where food is prepared or eaten.
