Changing your baby’s diaper may not be yours or their favorite task of the day, but for new mums knowing when or how to change is a whole new ball game. Newborns can need changing up to 12 times a day, so it is important you know what you’re using and doing to keep that diaper rash away.
Some babies need frequent diaper changes whilst others don’t, it depends on how sensitive their skin is. Babies with sensitive skin need changing as soon as they wet themselves whilst little ones with normal skin can wait to be changed after each feed. It is important to note that all babies need changing as soon as possible after they have done a poo.
