Diaper Guide

Newborns and Infants
Changing Tape Diapers

Let's do this together!

1. Prepare a new diaper


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.

2. Open up the soiled diaper


Babies often pee or poo during a diaper change, so don't panic.

3. Wipe away all poo and pee, then gently lift up baby's bottom to remove the soiled diaper


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.

5. Put on a new 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.

6. Fix the tape in place 


Hold down the sides of the diaper and gently pull the tape over.


Ensure both sides are symmetrical before fastening.

7. Arrange the gathers around the thighs


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.

How to dispose a soiled diaper

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.
