Changing diapers is just part of being a parent, but this task is probably one of the least enjoyable experiences you’ll share with baby. Nevertheless, stinky diapers are pretty much a fact of life, and you’ll need to find the best ways of handling them without too much of a fuss. Following some easy, simple tips can help make the whole diaper changing process much easier. From making sure you have the right products, such as baby wash and baby powder, to designating a specific space for diaper changes, there’s a lot you can do to make the task go a lot smoother and keep baby’s stinky bottom under wraps.
Always Be Prepared
One of the best ways to ensure that your diaper changes go smoothly is to make sure that you always have what you need on hand before you start. As soon as your little one’s bottom starts to smell, you’ll want to get that droopy diaper off, but rushing without having the right baby products at your side won’t do you much good. Always make sure that you have the following items ready to go before you attempt to change baby’s stinky diaper:
- Baby wipes
- Fresh diapers
- Diaper rash medication
- Baby wash
- Soft cloths
- Baby oil
- Baby powder
You may not need all of these items every time, but it’s nice to have them on hand if you do. If, for example, your little one has a painful rash, you’ll want to have some diaper rash medication on hand to soothe the pain. It’s always better to have these items rather than have to rush around and find them.
Find the Right Location
Changing a smelly diaper can be a difficult task if you haven’t set out an appropriate space to do it in. When you’re out of the house, you may have to improvise, but that can easily be done by relying on ultra-portable products, such as no-rinse baby wash and compact baby powder. However, when you’re at home, you shouldn’t have to improvise. Instead, you should have all of the right items laid out in an appropriate area. A specific diaper changing area is a great idea because it won’t get in the way of anything else, and it will help you to minimize the spread of germs. Changing diapers will also be less of a hassle when you’ve got a good space to work in.
Say Goodbye to Stinky
One of the best tips for having better diaper changes is to make sure that you always have baby wash on hand. Sometimes baby wipes will be enough to get your little one fresh and clean, but other times your little stinker is going to need some extra help. Baby Magic’s no-rinse wash can help you out when you’re in a stinky situation like this, and you can look forward to a fresh-smelling baby bottom in no time.
