In brief: With love!
Changing diapers is simple, but remember to be careful.
Turning your back on an infant of any age who is on a high counter or changing table is dangerous. Lay them down, open the diaper, hold their feet/legs up with one hand while cleaning their bottoms with your other hand (and a wipe or cloth!) then, place a new diaper under them, add some barrier cream, if desired, and seal them up!

You take off the dirty diaper, wipe off (clean) the skin in the diaper area then put on the clean diaper.
