Up to the point a baby does not need diapers anymore, three years can pass. Some toddlers do even need them longer. Therefore it is worth getting a useful changing table before the birth of your child, with the right height of course. The daily care will provide more pleasure when everything runs smooth and without any complications. If you change your baby’s diapers in a body-protecting position, you will prevent unnecessary hardenings. When using a changing table, you will always have a fresh diaper and care products at hand. Your child will lie soft and safe. More information >
Generally midwives and pediatricians recommend changing a baby’s nappy before every meal. Only at night, when your baby is asleep, you can relinquish on changing it too often. Especially when the diaper is still dry and there is no diaper dermatitis (inflamed skin areas on the bum). Changing diapers before a meal is better than after it. Your child feels better wearing a fresh diaper. It will also be prevented that he pukes during changing due to the stress. Teething children often suffer from diarrhea symptoms during a boost of teething. The usage of diapers is noticeably increased during this time.
As long as there have been disposable diapers, mothers discuss which kind of diaper is the best for their child. Are disposable diapers better than molleton diapers? This question can be answered clearly. Every child has other requirements. Children, who often suffer from dermatitis, are likely to experience relief when using cotton diapers. The more you change a cotton diaper, the better the skin care is. Cotton diapers are more breathable than disposable ones. They do not contain impermeable fleece. Cotton diapers are more expensive though when buying them in the first place. However, in a long-term they are cheaper than the easier to use disposable diapers. Also think of that cotton diapers need to be washed daily after they were changed. If you are not fast enough changing your baby’s diaper, the clothing can also get dirty. As there are advantages and disadvantages for every method, a lot of parents try both before deciding finally. One thing is for sure: when you are on the go or on a journey, disposable diapers are the one method which is really comfortable and hygienic. Cotton diapers are not suitable for older toddlers. They are not supposed to absorb this amount of urine which is then produced by children of this age. Molleton cloths are too small for bigger children.
In order that changing is as easy as possible, the spot for it should be perfectly constructed:
The changing spot in a child’s room or the bathroom is equally important as the cot. Your child should not only feel well while getting his diapers changed, but also lie hygienically. If you want to distract your little one with a toy while doing the hygienic part, washable toys are recommended. Cuddly toys can get very unhygienic in this area.
Place everything in a way to have it within reach, like all necessary care products, washing glove, water and diapers. While you change your baby’s nappies, always hold it with one hand, so that he won’t fall over or get hurt. All utensils for changing should thus be sorted well. Do not change the order of all the utensils if you got used to it. It will facilitate the whole process and give your child more rest and safety.
In order that your baby’s skin is cleaned in a skin-friendly way, you can use disposable baby wipes for the primary cleaning. Wash the dirty areas with a soft washing glove and warm water. The washing glove which is used for baby care needs to be changed at least once a day. Soapy products for washing can attack the protective acid mantle of a baby’s skin. That is why you should try use as few care products as possible. You should preferably use clean water and oil which does not contain mineral oil. When you are on the go, changing diapers is easy. Use packed wet wipes for the cleaning. You can throw the used wipes away along with the diaper. A comfortable diaper bag will facilitate this process while travelling as well.
