Tips on Changing Diapers
One of the most tiring parts of being a parent or a nanny of a newborn child is probably cleaning up the pees and poos of the baby. Even deciding over the material to be used for the diaper is already a huge dilemma for a mom! Not only that, we will be dealing with our baby’s mess as frequent as 70 times a week.
For diapering a baby, prepare: a clean diaper, fasteners, diaper ointment for rashes (optional), a container of warm water, and clean washcloths, diaper wipes, or cotton balls. We have to make sure all of these are already ready so we don’t have to leave the baby to get the supplies we forgot.
Steps to change his diaper:
After the bowel movement, lay your baby on his or her back to take the used diaper.
The cotton balls, water, washcloth, or the wipes can now be used to clean his genitals gently. Consider his sensitive skin while doing this step. When removing a boy’s diaper, be careful not to expose him in the air too much because it will cause him to urinate. On the other hand, wiping a girl must start from front to her bottom to avoid urinary tract infection.
Apply ointment to heal rashes. We can consult our nurse or doctor for the best ointment we can use to heal them.
Lastly, thoroughly wash your hands after changing the diapers of the baby.
Warm baths, ointments, and a little timeout from diapers can free your baby from red bumpy rashes. Baby’s sensitive skin is prone to irritation when always in contact with wet or poopy diapers. To avoid rashes, try these steps:
-Change the diapers frequently to avoid irritation. Do this as soon as the bowel movement is finished or the diaper has become too wet.
– Wash the body part with a mild soap and apply a cream with zinc oxide because these kinds of cream form a barrier against moisture.
-Try to free your baby from diaper for some time. This gives a chance for the skin to heal.
-Wash cloth diapers with dye-free and fragrance-free detergents.
-If rashes stayed for more than 3 days or seems to be getting worse, it may cause fungal infection. Consider consulting your doctor when rashes persist.
