In the past 2 months or so, Vivian (14 months) has really started to be on the go. She is full on walking and sometimes running. We will look away for a second and she is already climbing up the stairs or across the house getting herself into some type of mess. She is such a busy body at all times but will occasionally stop and tell me she wants her diaper changed (in her own little way). She will either say the words in Chinese to me or go over to the diaper stash and grab one and hand it to me. It kind of amazes me that she is already smart enough to do this. However, other times, she doesn’t tell us she needs changing and we’ll catch a whiff and we all know what that means. Sometimes diaper changes are pleasant and sometimes they are a challenge, but with my experience with a boy and girl in diapers, I wanted to share 5 tips for a successful diaper change.
1. Pick your products (diapers, wipes, diaper cream, etc.).
Currently we are using the Everyday Happy Diaper Care Kit (to see the full review, check out my post here). I like these diapers because they are free of any harsh chemicals, lightweight and soft. This kit also comes with bamboo wipes that are absorbent and soft as well. Basically using gentle diapers and wipes is important because you want your baby to feel comfortable every step of the way.
