Spread out the diaper and raise the inner gathers that help to prevent leakage.
Place the new diaper directly beneath the soiled diaper before removing it. Pull the top part of the diaper up until it is slightly above your baby's navel.
Babies often pee or poo during a diaper change, so don't panic.
If baby has pooed, gently wipe without rubbing. Thoroughly remove all residual poo.
*Pee also needs to be wiped away carefully. Be careful not to pull your baby's legs by force.
Gently lift up baby's bottom to remove the soiled diaper.
Place your fingers over the inner gathers to keep them raised as you lift the new diaper over your baby's navel. For boys, ensure that the penis is pointing downwards.
Hold down the sides of the diaper and gently pull the tape over.
Ensure both sides are symmetrical before fastening.
Use your fingers to adjust the side gathers around your baby's thighs evenly so as to prevent leakages. If the edge is folded inwards, the diaper may leak.
Flush the poo from the soiled diaper down the toilet. Roll the soiled diaper up tightly and seal firmly and fasten it with the tapes before throwing it away.
