Check your baby’s nappy often, 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.
Lay your baby down. Make eye contact, talk, sing or give your baby a toy. This helps baby feel calm and happy.
Undo the nappy. Use the front of the nappy to wipe off any poo. Fold the nappy into a tight ball.
