How to Change a Nappy
1Finding a suitable place
Find a clean, flat surface to change the nappy on – the floor, a table or changing table would work. Place your baby on a soft, washable changing pad, blanket or towel.
2Removing the old nappy
Gently undress your little one, open the nappy, use wipes to clean up the mess and place them in the nappy before carefully rolling it up and securely seal it using the sticky tabs.
3Cleaning your baby’s bottom
It’s vital to make sure that you thoroughly wipe your baby’s bottom all over, including any creases and rolls of skin. NIVEA Baby Soft & Cream Wipes are great for this and provide soothing relief to the area while cleaning.
4Protecting the sensitive area
Wet nappies can cause friction, chafing and irritation. After cleaning, smooth on some NIVEA Baby Pure & Sensitive SOS Cream. Gently formulated with zinc oxide, it soothes the skin and protects it from irritation.
5Putting on a fresh nappy
Slide a clean nappy underneath your baby with the sticky tabs facing upwards, before pulling up the front and fastening it securely using the sticky tabs – you’re all done!
