The other day, I heard my friend Tucao make complaints about her baby’s wet pants every night. Changing diapers for your baby is the first lesson for every novice parent. It seems simple, but it is not easy to operate. If you don’t pay attention to some problems, it will not only affect the use effect of diapers, but also may affect the development of your baby.
Four wrong ways to change diapers
1. Lift your baby’s feet up
When some mothers change diapers for their babies, they are used to lifting the baby’s feet high, making half of the baby’s body empty, and then putting the diapers under the baby’s buttocks. Baby to change several times a day diapers, often repeat this action, it is easy to cause the baby’s spine injury. The right way is to hold the baby’s feet up a little, or gently hold up the baby’s buttocks. (pay attention to wechat subscription number: parent child time of Duoma, talk about parenting)
2. Change diapers after the baby drinks milk
When changing diapers, the baby likes to move around and refuses to cooperate well. Only when he has enough milk can he be quiet. But don’t change diapers for your baby at this time, because when changing diapers, your baby needs to lie flat, and lying flat can easily lead to the baby who has just finished drinking milk spitting. It is suggested that mothers change their babies before feeding.
3. To keep warm, wear thick diapers in winter
Some mothers feel cold in winter, diapers should also wear thick, good water absorption and warmth, but also adhere to a relatively long time to change, so that the baby does not have to often take off the pants, causing him to freeze. Do you know why the baby has a red butt? It’s because it’s stuffy out of the diapers for a long time. The air permeability of thick diapers is relatively poor, and it contains more cotton and fluffy pulp. It is easy to agglomerate after absorbing urine, which will not only make the baby uncomfortable, but also affect the baby’s action.
4. Wipe the baby’s red buttocks with a wet towel
Red buttocks are diaper rashes. Babies get diaper rash. Do not use paper towels or wipes to wipe the baby’s butt. The essence or moisturizer in wet tissue will stimulate baby’s skin and increase eczema. After the baby pulls the stool, should use the clear water to clean, then uses the clean towel or the cotton cloth to wipe baby’s buttock gently. In order to keep the baby’s buttocks clean and dry, mothers can also let the baby lie in the sun when the weather is good.

Therefore, when buying diapers, mothers should not only judge the size according to the weight and age of the baby, but also observe the effect of the baby after wearing them.

2. Short front and long back to prevent back leakage
When the baby lies sleeping, urine is easy to leak from the back. When mothers wear diapers for the baby, they should pay attention to putting the back slightly higher than the abdomen, so as to better prevent urine from leaking out from the back of the buttocks. When buying diapers, you can also choose high waist design.
3. The leakproof side is erect

4. Both sides of the Velcro should be aligned

If they find that the diaper becomes thicker and heavier, they should replace it in time. But don’t wait until the baby’s urine is full to change diapers. There are a lot of bacteria in the diapers that suck up enough urine, which will cause irritation to the baby’s skin and cause red buttocks.
