Your baby’s diaper needs to be changed up to 7 or 8 times a day. An infant’s very delicate little bottom can easily become irritated from dampness, contact with urine and stools, or friction from diapers. As a result, special care is needed each time you change your baby’s diaper. Get our tips for effectively cleaning your baby’s bottom!
• Wash your hands to avoid transmitting germs to your baby.
• Get everything ready (products, towel, diaper, cream if necessary) so that you don’t have to leave your baby for a second!
• Put a towel on the changing table in case of any little accidents that might happen while you are changing your baby.
• Clean your baby’s bottom with water and a special baby cleansing gel (soap-free) or with a cotton pad soaked in no-rinse cleansing fluid.
• You can also use wipes, once your baby’s skin is more mature
• Dry completely, patting (not rubbing) with a clean towel or paper tissues, not forgetting to dry the skin folds to avoid any chafing.
• When possible, leave your baby’s buttocks open to the air for a few minutes
4. Prevention (diaper redness)
• Apply a diaper cream, ideally every time you change your baby’s diaper, or at least before bed, to prevent redness.
• If your baby has severe diaper redness, ask advice from your pediatrician.
5. A clean diaper
• You can now put a clean diaper on your baby!
• Holding your baby’s ankles, slide a clean, open diaper underneath the buttocks, adjusting it around the abdomen without tightening it, then fasten the tabs. For little boys, make sure you point the penis do downward!
