8 Great Ways To Transform Nappy Change Time Into A Special And Enjoyable Experience For Both Parents And Babies

WAY # 1 Set up a cosy and comfortable environment.
This as your designated area ensures that the area is warm, comfortable and welcoming. Using soft blankets or cushioned changing matt for a comfortable surface for your baby. Use some music or calming sounds to build a soothing atmosphere.

WAY # 2 Sing and talk to your baby.
Use this time as an opportunity to communicate and bond. Nursery rhymes, lullabies or even your own made-up special song can be sung during this time. Talk to your baby in a gentle and reassuring tone and describe what you are doing this helps with language development.

WAY # 3 Maintain Eye Contact and Smile.
During nappy change time, make sure to maintain eye contact with your baby and remember to always smile. This is very simple but can strengthen the connection and bond between you and your little one. Making gentle loving interactions, such as making funny faces or even imitating your baby’s expressions creates a positive enjoyable experience.

WAY # 4 Use Sensory Stimulation.
To make nappy change time more engaging incorporate sensory elements such as soft toys, textured fabrics etc. Allow your baby to explore touch and feel different textures fostering their sensory development. You can also hang a mirror near the changing area so your baby can see and provide visual stimulation.

WAY # 5 Incorporate Playfulness.
Use silly voices, gentle tickles, or a game of peek-a-boo are all examples of a possible playful environment you can introduce into this time. You can even introduce a special toy, blanket, or puppet that is only used during this time to create a sense of excitement for your baby during this time.

WAY # 6 Read Books or Use Picture Cards.
Make an opportunity for shared reading. Keep a stack of board books or picture cards close and chose a few to show and read to your baby during a nappy change to help develop their early literacy skills and encourage a love for books and reading.

WAY # 7 Practise Gentle Massage.
Take a few moments during a nappy change to give your baby a gentle massage. Use a baby safe-moisturiser or oil and massage their legs, arms and tummy. With a soothing touch, you can help your baby relax and create a positive association with nappy change times.

WAY # 8 Celebrate Milestones.
Celebrate any milestones and achievements during nappy change time. Cheer and praise your baby for any accomplishments if it’s rolling over, sitting up, or reaching for objects. Any achievement little or small make sure you celebrate by making your baby feel special and motivating your baby to continue exploring and learning.

We understand every baby is different and unique so chose the ideas to suit your child and what will help in their development.
