Always check your baby’s nappy, and change a dirty nappy straight away. Before you change a nappy, make sure you have everything close and ready. This includes a clean nappy, baby wipes or a wash cloth and some water.
Lie the baby down, ready to change. Talk, sing and give the baby a toy to keep him calm.
Undo the nappy. Use the front of the nappy to wipe off any poo. Fold the nappy into a tight ball.
