Slideshow: A step-by-step guide to changing your baby’s diaper
The more diapers you change, the easier it will be – you might just figure out some tricks of your own! Our partners at Pampers have provided us with their classic diaper changing method, a favorite of moms everywhere.

Lay baby down on their back and remove their clothes. Place a clean diaper or towel under them to keep the changing table from getting dirty.
Unfasten the soiled diaper and pull down the front. Place a cloth over baby to prevent accidents from spraying in anyone’s face.

Gently lift baby up a little, holding onto their ankles. Fold the diaper over, using the front part to clean up any poop and create a barrier between the clean diaper and your baby’s bottom.
Use a few wet wipes to clean up, always wiping from front to back. We’re fans of Pampers Sensitive Wipes, which are hypoallergenic, fragrance and alcohol free, and specially designed for a newborn’s sensitive skin. Make sure to use your wipes to thoroughly clean the folds of skin where bacteria likes to grow.

Remove the dirty diaper and let your baby’s skin air dry for a bit, or gently pat it dry.
Fold up the front of the new diaper to your baby’s waist. With a boy, point his penis down to prevent him peeing over the diaper. For a newborn, make sure not to cover the umbilical cord. Pampers Swaddlers have an umbilical cord notch to protect your baby’s delicate belly with a perfectly contoured fit.

Make sure the diaper isn’t bunched. Fasten the tabs, being careful not to stick them to baby’s skin. The diaper should be snug, but not too tight – you should be able to slide two fingers down the top of the diaper.
Dispose of any solid waste (poop) by dumping it in the toilet. Solid waste isn’t supposed to go in the trash can. Wrap up the soiled diaper and toss it into your diaper bin or waste basket.

All done! Now you’ve got a clean, dry, happy baby.
