“Baby Diapers”

You can choose disposable diapers, washable diapers, or a mix of both.

Disposable diapers are more absorbent, will keep your baby drier longer, and are more convenient. But they are more expensive in the long term than cloth diapers. They need to be disposed of properly, and they generate a significant amount of trash.

Cloth diapers require some investment upfront, but because they are reusable, they will save you money over time. However, they must be thoroughly and Washed and dried. You can get a diaper that includes a waterproof outer layer or buys separate liners to contain wetness. If you use cloth diapers, it’s a good idea to wash them before putting them on your baby for the first time. If you wash them yourself, skip the fabric softener which can make diaper less absorbent. Instead, add 1/2 cup of with vinegar to the final rinse.

“Which is greener?”

It isn’t clear which is truly greener, but eco-conscious parents at least have a growing number of options to consider. Flushable diapers offer the convenience of disposables with less waste going into the trash. Biodegradable diapers are somewhat misleading—- nothing fully biodegrades in a landfill. You can also buy compostable diapers, but you need to consider what to do with them after they’re used. 

Similar environmental arguments are made for and against commercial baby wipes. Wipes are convenient and easy to use and reactions to chemicals in wipe are rare. You can buy alcohol – and fragrance–free wipes, or you can simply use a washcloth to clean your baby. 

“Changing a girl’s diaper”

If you’re changing a girl’s diaper, you need to be careful to wipe front to back. With your baby lying on her back, start cleaning from the lowest part of the abdomen over the genital area and proceed back toward her anus to minimize the risk of spreading fecal bacteria to the vaginal area. Once a cloth or wipe has feces on it or has been near the anus, it shouldn’t be used to clean near the vagina. In older girls, improper wiping technique has been shown to increase the risk of urinary tract infections, which are usually caused by germs originating in feces. 

The front-to-back technique isn’t as necessary for boys. They have different anatomy and there’s more distance between the anus and the urethral opening. But still, be careful:  When your baby boy’s diaper is removed, the exposure to the air may prompt him to urinate — and you could get squirted. Hold a clean area of the diaper over his penis for a few moments or drop a clean washcloth over it to catch any urine.

“Baby Massage”

Gentle massage is a great way to bond with your baby. You can do this with your baby laid over your knees or when she’s lying flat on a soft, warm towel or mat in a warm, quiet location. You can start off with her fully dressed if she seems ill at ease. Gently stroke your baby over her back and up and down the length of her spine and limbs. When she’s about 2 months old, you can try a full-body routine with an appropriate oil. Don’t massage her, however, if she’s tired, hungry, or has just been fed.

“Back, arms, and legs”

Lie down on your left side, with your baby lying on her right side and facing you. Stroke your baby with your right hand, from the back of her neck to the base of her spine— in the same way, you would stroke a kitten or a puppy. Continue for about a minute.

Baby Massage

Using a circular movement, gently massage around your baby’s upper back and then down the length of her back to the base of her spine. Continue for about a minute.

Next, slowly stroke one of her arms; keep your touch gentle and relaxed as you take the stroke from her shoulder to her hand. Continue for about a minute. Repeat with her other arm. Move your hand to the top of one of your baby’s legs and stroke down from her hip to her foot with your palm. You can give her leg a very gentle little shake to loosen up and help her to relax. Continue for about a minute. Repeat with her other leg.
