Make Nappy Changing Easy!

What do you need for nappy changing?

For nappy and baby changing, the basic items you will need are:

  • A clean nappy
  • A clean changing mat
  • Clean wipes
  • Nappy cream (if needed)
  • A nappy bin

What do you change a baby on?

A baby can be changed on any flat surface. A changing table, the floor, or a bed are all suitable places to change a baby. Some parents even change their baby in the car if they are on the go. Change mats and change pads are designed to make changing a baby easier and can be placed on any flat surface.

What are the advantages of changing tables?

A changing table is a dedicated space for changing your baby. This can be helpful as it means you always have all the items you need to hand and it can help to keep your baby safe while you are changing them. Some parents find that using a changing table makes nappy changing a more relaxing and enjoyable experience.

What are the different types of nappies?

Choosing from the different types of nappies will mostly depend on your personal preferences.

  • Disposable nappies are convenient and easy to use. Some parents find that they leak less than reusable nappies. They come in day and nighttime nappy options in different sizes. Night nappies are designed to be used overnight and are usually thicker and more absorbent than daytime nappies .
  • Reusable nappies are becoming more popular again because they are better for the environment. They can be more expensive to buy initially but will save you money in the long run.
  • Swimming nappies are designed for use when your baby is swimming. They help to prevent accidents in the pool and have a waterproof outer layer and an absorbent inner layer. They can usually be washed and reused multiple times.

Are baby wipes the same as antibacterial wipes?

No, baby wipesare not the same as antibacterial wipes. Baby wipes are designed to be gentle on a baby's skin, while antibacterial wipes are designed to kill bacteria. While antibacterial wipes may be safe to use on a baby's skin, they are not necessary and may cause irritation.

What does nappy cream do?

Nappy creams and lotions are used to protect a baby's skin from irritation. They can also help to heal existing rashes and prevent new nappy rash from forming.

Why use a nappy bin?

A nappy bin is used to store dirty nappies and wipes until they can be disposed of properly. Nappy bins usually have a sealable lid to prevent odours from escaping.

How often should you change a baby's nappy?

It is generally recommended that you change a baby's nappy every two to three hours, or as needed. However, some babies may need to be changed more frequently, especially if they are gassy or have diarrhoea. Pay attention to your baby's cues and change the nappy as needed.

Should I change my baby's nappy before or after feeding?

It is generally recommended that you change your baby's nappy before nursing and feeding, as a clean nappy will be more comfortable for them. However, if your baby often has particularly dirty nappies just after feeding, it may be best to change it after they have been fed to save having to change it twice.

Where should I store nappies?

Nappies should be stored in a cool, dry place. A cupboard or drawer is usually a suitable storage spot. Avoid storing nappies in direct sunlight or near any heat source, as this can cause the nappies to degrade.

When can babies start wearing training pants?

Most babies will be ready to start using training pants around the age of 18 months to two years. However, every child is different and some may be ready sooner, while others may not be ready until they are older. Pay attention to your child's cues and talk to your doctor or healthcare professional if you are unsure.
