How to change your baby’s nappy

Babies need frequent nappy changes, but how often they need changing depends on how sensitive their skin is. 

Some babies have very delicate skin and need changing as soon as they wet themselves, otherwise their skin becomes sore and red. Other babies can wait to be changed until before or after every feed.

All babies need changing as soon as possible when they’ve done a poo (stool) to prevent nappy rash. Find out more on our page Changing Nappies here.
