How do I change my baby boy's diaper?

How do I change my baby boy's diaper?

It's OK if it works!: I'm assuming you're asking about a cloth diaper? If so, fold the diaper so you place extra padding over the penis to catch the urine. Fasten it at the baby's hips with tape - or with diaper pins if you're brave. Disposables are probably easier to use, especially if you are new at this! Remember, it only matters that it works - not how it looks! Good luck. ...Read more

How many hours is the maximum to leave my baby during night in the diaper? I don't change coz im afraid he might wake up

Until they wake: Today's super absorbent diapers are designed to pull moisture away from the skin into material in the fabric. It's the moisture that over hydrates the skin & sets them up for diaper rashes. Most kids can sleep 6-9 hours in a diaper & not have problems. Those using cloth diapers & heavy diaper covers will trap moisture & have more problems with rashes if left overnight. ...Read more
