When changing a diaper, you should have it on hand

Healthy skin should be dry as far as the diaper-wearing part of the skin is concerned. Wet skin can quickly become brittle and prone to diaper rash. To minimize wetness from diapers, change diapers frequently and use extra absorbent diapers. If you use cloth diapers for your baby, you should check and change the diapers more often.

Vaseline oil, zinc oxide ointment, or diaper cream can also help protect the skin from moisture. Baby powder may feel good on your baby's skin, but it's not the best for babies. Baby powder can reduce the friction between the diaper and the child's skin for a short time, but once it is wet (the child will definitely wet it!), it is useless. Your baby could even inhale large amounts of the powder, which could be dangerous.

As the child continues to grow, the number of diaper changes will gradually decrease. At the beginning, the average is ten times a day, and it will gradually decrease to six times. Usually, diapers are changed before or after each feeding and after each bowel movement. Also, change the baby's diaper before bedtime while he/she is awake. Diapers should also be changed before you take your baby outside.

When changing diapers, you should have at hand:

A pair of clean diapers

Diaper rash ointment or petroleum jelly

A soft towel and a small basin of warm water

Be sure to have everything ready before you start, and never leave the baby alone on the changing table!

Take off the wet diaper first. If it's just wet, just replace it without cleaning the genital area. If the diaper is still stained with stool, the child's bottom should be cleaned with a washcloth and warm water. There is no need to use soap unless the child has diarrhea and washing with water alone is not enough. When necessary, mild soap can be used (even mild soap will remove important natural oils from your child's skin). Then, apply ointment or petroleum jelly, and put on clean diapers.
