Spread out the nappy and raise the inner gathers that help to prevent leakage.
Place the new nappy directly beneath the soiled nappy before removing it. Pull the top part of the nappy up until it is slightly above your baby's navel.
Babies often pee or poo during a nappy change, so don't panic.
If baby has pooed, wipe the bottom clean, including all the creases where the poo tends to be collected.
*Pee also needs to be wiped away carefully. Be careful not to pull your baby's legs by force.
Place your fingers over the inner gathers to keep them raised as you lift the new nappy over your baby's navel. For boys, ensure that the penis is pointing downwards.
Hold down the sides of the nappy 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 nappy may leak.
Flush any poo down the toilet. Dispose of the soiled nappy by rolling it up as small as possible and using the tape to hold it closed.
