As all parents know, dirty diapers come with the job of being a parent. What some parents don’t expect, though, is for that poopy diaper smell to hang around even after baby’s diaper has been changed. Unfortunately, that happens all too often, but the good news is that you don’t have to live out the rest of baby’s diaper days with the smell. There are a few simple tips and tricks that you can follow to make sure that your little stinker’s stinky diaper smell doesn’t linger. From keeping an eye on your diaper pail to rinsing baby off with baby wash after a diaper change, you can control the smell and breathe easy from now on!
Checking Out Your Diaper Pail
If you’ve had one too many whiffs of that dirty diaper smell even after you’ve changed your baby, the first thing you should do is consider your diaper pail. It may be the reason that you keep on smelling that stinky odor long after you’ve changed your baby’s diaper. For starters, make sure that you have a good-quality diaper pail that’s designed to minimize odors. There are a lot of options out there, just like there are for baby lotion and other new baby products, and some are better than others, so doing your research can help you find the best option for your needs. If you do think you’ve chosen the right pail, make sure that you’re wrapping baby’s old diapers up well before disposing of them. If dirty diapers aren’t handled properly before being disposed of, they can make your nursery and your whole house stink to high heaven!
Give Baby a Rinse
Sometimes, after a diaper change, it’s your baby will be the culprit who continues to smell like a poopy diaper. Fortunately, it’s pretty easy to do something about this, if you have a few extra minutes to spare. Instead of just using baby wipes to clean up your little one’s bottom after a diaper change, try giving your baby a quick bath with baby wash. In most cases, it can really help to alleviate that poopy smell and have your baby smelling fresh and sweet in no time. If you simply don’t have time to give baby a proper bath, you should consider using Baby’s Magic no-rinse baby wash. It’s perfect for diaper changes on the go, and it can go a long way in ensuring that you’re not left crinkling your nose after a diaper change. If you keep a bottle in your diaper bag, you’ll always have an easy way of keeping baby smelling sweet.
