How to Change your Baby's Diaper in 8 Simple Steps:
- Have your diaper supplies near and within reach.
- Lay your baby gently on a dry and flat surface. Ensure that surface is not cold. It is best to place a waterproof changing pad on the surface. Stand at the edge with your baby's toes pointing to your body.
- Open the clean diaper, remove baby's clothing and position clean diaper beneath your baby.
- Unfasten the soiled diaper. Be sure to wrap it up before throwing it into the trash can to contain the mess.
Clean baby's diaper area: Simply soak a cotton pad with Mustela's Physio No-Rinse Cleansing Water to gently clean your baby's bottom to immediately give your baby a sense of well-being. PhysiObebe, with its soothing aloe vera extract, leaves your baby's skin clean, soft and delicately scented. The no-rinse formula makes it easy and convenient to apply. Be sure to wipe front to back and clean inside all the creases.
If you are on the go, and for more mature babies, use Mustela's Dermo Soothing Cleansing Wipes to clean your baby's bottom.
- Leave your baby's bottom to dry and follow up with the Mustela Vitamin Barrier Change Cream 123 to prevent diaper rash and redness! It is ideal to apply everytime you change baby's diaper.

How to choose the right diaper for baby
Here are 5 points that you must know when choosing your baby's diaper...
1. Soft & Breathable - Soft diapers result in happier babies. Lesser abrasion and more ventilation will reduce diaper rash problems too.
2. Good Absorbency - You wouldn't want your baby's bum to always be soaking wet! Finding diapers that can soak and lock up urine is key to a happy baby.
3. Hypoallergenic - Don't risk baby's bum to chemicals as you will be welcoming diaper rash problems.
4. Good Fit - It's key to pick out the right sizing for your baby. If the diaper is too loose, you will risk having spills. Too tight a diaper will result in an uncomfortable baby.
5. Affordability - Consider buying in bulk to save cost. Alternatively, have you considered cloth diapering? It can lead to huge savings in the long run!
