How to Diaper a Baby

How to diaper
  1. Place the rear end of the diaper beneath the baby's bottom.
  2. Bring the right panel towards the front and fasten the tab.
  3. Do the same with the left panel and tab.
  4. Check to make sure the diaper is in place and that there's no room for leakage.

Age-by-age Diaper Guidelines

Diapering needs change as your baby grows. You can try different fits and styles to find out what works best.

  • Newborns:
    i) Newborns usually need diapers with extra stretch that will accommodate their rapid growth.
    ii) Newborn diapers are less absorbent and need frequent change.
    iii) These diapers usually come with a U-shaped hole cut out.
  • 5 to 8 months:
    i) At this stage, your baby needs diapers with a good fit. Choose diapers that can handle bigger messes as your baby will start eating and excreting solid foods.
    ii) They should be extra absorbent and last longer.
  • 9 to 24 months:
    i) Now your toddler needs diapers that are more stretchable with stronger tabs.
    ii) They need to be changed frequently to avoid skin rashes.
  • 24 months and above:
    Your baby requires training pants at this stage, though diapers can be used while training your little ones for potty time.

Tips for Diapering a Baby



  • When buying diapers, purchase them in bulk once you are sure what size and fit is comfortable for your little one.
  • Baby wipes are your saviour for cleaning.
  • When you see a rash, don't hesitate to switch to another diaper brand with less chemicals.
  • Avoid using wipes when your baby has rashes. Use cotton balls or a washcloth dipped in warm water.
  • Set up multiple changing stations around your house to avoid rushing to your room every time there is a blow-out.
