How to change baby’s diaper.

Most of the items we use are disposable, such as diapers and wipes.

We felt that all brands of diapers did a good job keeping in leaks. When a diaper did leak, it was most likely due to us not putting it on properly. I would suggest getting the least expensive diaper and change frequently, like once every 2 or 3 hours.

Costco diapers are a great bargain at 14 cents per diaper. If you have coupons, I found that Target sold diapers at a good price too. Target diapers came out to be roughly 18 cents per diaper.

We use a contour changing pad. On it, we would always have a diaper liner. Above the liner would be a sheet of paper tower. This is just in case I didn’t keep our son’s but raised high enough and it smudges the cloth, I rather it smudges on the tower than the liner. This way, I wouldn’t have to keep changing the liner. I change the power tower at every diaper change and change the diaper liner once a day.

I would always keep a kleenex over our son’s penis. This contains the open air accidents to a small area and the diaper liner does a good job absorbing his pee.

If you have any suggestions or comments, please feel free to post it in the comments below.

I see like you like to waste your money on disposables just so you feel
‘clean’ and as well as wasting paper resources for your own kid.

@jbhatersaremyfriends Thank you for the compliment!

AwkwardHamster says:

We considered using cloth diapers but the cleaning cost was too high. And
if I hire a cleaning service, their prices are even higher and the lowest
price one meant they take away the diaper once a week.

First, congratulations. The hospital gave my wife a spray bottle for
herself. We kept the bottle after leaving the hospital. After my baby
pooped & there were two of us home. One would hold the child over the sink,
the other will use that spray bottle to rinse the poop away. Afterward, we
use a soft facial tissue to dry the area. Marcus’s skin was sensitive in
the early months. We felt wiping would irritate it more. I don’t know any
parents who did this. This went on for 3 months or so.
