How do I change my baby boy's diaper?

How do I change my baby boy's diaper?

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

Baby is eating good & growing. But doesn't have more than 3-4 wet diapers a day.
