6 Diaper Changing Tips For Our Fam of New Generation Parents

If we know any two things, it’s diapers and art. They’re actually… kind of sort of… all we know—but that’s OK! We make it work. Our diapers aren’t to be trifled with. They’re works of art that, as art, embody the nature of living from life’s wildest fervors to its simplest lulls, and yes, even its deepest melancholies. And for many parents changing a diaper, as a complete and utter nightmare, falls into the last category. But like diapers, the art of diaper changing, is something we’ve totally mastered. Our diaper changing tips help your little stay amused–and help you keep your Super Mom or Super Dad status. Whether you’re on your first or hundredth change, we’ve got some diaper changing techniques, tips, and tricks up our sleeves that will help keep your little’s bum covered (as well as your own). So, let’s turn those diaper changing blues around!

diaper changing tips and tricks

Make it a time to bond and relax

A diaper change is a bonding experience between you and your little. You get up together, eat together, and play together. So, why not make the most of the situation? The need for a fresh diaper is bound to happen at one point or another. After all, this is a baby we’re talking about here! Find a location where your baby feels the most comfortable, a designated spot that’s clean and close to everything you’ll need. That way, you two can giggle without pesky interruptions like having to run from room to room to gather diapers and wipes. Slow down and enjoy time with your babe. We love to add to the experience with organic creams or lotions. Your little deserves the full pampering treatment, just like you do from time to time. OK, maybe all the time. Shhh… we won’t tell if you don’t tell 😉 This is also the perfect time for your little to wear something they love and feel comfortable in. When your baby recognizes that changing time means relaxing, quality time with Mom and Dad as well as a soft new diaper, they’ll be more eager to let you do your thing. That means less frustration for you and more happiness for them. Cue all the laughs and giggles. Speaking of a soft new diaper, you and your baby will want something that’s inspiring, stimulating, and innovative. A Parasol diaper is an all-around expressive work of art, and that’s exactly what we set out to be. And just when you thought it couldn’t get any better, our diapers can be worn both day and night. Right when your little wakes and right when they turn in for bed, they can look forward to their favorite diapers. Plus, why not add to the excitement with whimsical, hand-painted diapers you two can feel good about?

Give your undivided attention

What we don’t get is how a diaper change is treated as just “maintenance.” What’s up with that? While you might want to rush, give your little love time to respond and interact with you. Your relationship will only continue to grow, and this is a perfect time for connections and lots of tummy kisses and tickles. As you’re reaching for a clean diaper, encourage them to be still by keeping them occupied as they lie down. Gently help them change positions. Reward them with a special game or toy. If you’ve noticed that they’re still antsy, stay in tune with what they DO enjoy. If your little prefers quiet distractions that put them in a tranquil state of mind, stay attentive and keep them calm. Low key, we totally have a thing for YouTube playlists. Or maybe your baby loves binge-watching Netflix as much as you do! We won’t judge you, no matter how many shows and movies you two get through. use gentle diapers for changing

Go for gentle

The thing is, being gentle builds trust between you and your little. This is especially important when it comes to mastering diaper changing techniques. Trust us, with a gentle touch AND a gentle diaper, they’re sure to doze off in seconds. Parasol diapers and wipes use kind ingredients that keep the world and your baby safe. Each diaper uses fluff pulp from sustainably managed forests, so your baby can play and dream in maximum comfort. Our diapers and wipes also won’t irritate your baby’s bum, keeping fussiness at an all-time low. No allergens, parabens, fragrances, or phthalate here! The best part is the soothing snuggle that comes along with our eco-friendly diapers. Luxuriously soft and free of latex, your little one will want that new diaper on right away. This is the softness they need and love. This is definitely one diaper changing tip you won’t want to forget about.

Check the fit

Here’s the biggest not-so-secret secret: when it comes to a smooth diaper change, it’s all in—well—the diaper. With full back coverage and a high waist, Parasol diapers provide the right fit for your babe. Our diapers also offer a cozy topsheet layer, a breathable backsheet, and hygiene-grade elastic that perfectly hugs your little. There’s no fussing with that—before, during, or after a change! Make sure you watch out for tight, uncomfortable diapers. And what’s the deal with itchy, loose diapers? We’re definitely not a fan. We make your baby’s comfort a priority. Parasol provide diapers in six sizes, so finding the perfect fit is super easy—even as your little continues to grow. No matter the size you order, Parasol diapers are sure to fit your babe’s bum perfectly.

Have fun with it

You’re a dreamer and a trendsetter, and you’re living life on your own terms. So are we! We get it. That’s why you should never stop having fun—but we probably don’t have to tell you that. Parenting is a fun journey, and as any seasoned parent will tell you, its best moments happen when you least expect it. But don’t just “go with the flow”—embrace it. Being a parent comes with accepting that, along with trying to be perfect, you just have to be real. Anything can happen during a diaper change—and that’s what makes them fun! There’s so much opportunity for spontaneity and no room for judgement, making it the perfect time to just let loose. Seriously, don’t be afraid to sing, dance, and play. Diaper changes don’t have to be a chore. But wriggling around is inevitable. It’s going to happen. Your baby is a bundle of never-ending energy, so why not just roll with it? Embrace your baby for who they are. We promise we’ll do the same. And don’t forget Mr. Bear! He needs a new diaper too! how to make diaper changing fun

Not all baby wipes are created equal.

Baby wipes aren’t all priced the same...because they’re not made the same. Our new plant-based Clear+Pure™ baby wipes are dermatologist-certified and formulated with only the purest ingredients. They’re stronger to prevent tearing, more effective at getting baby really clean with fewer wipes...and they dispense one wipe at a time. At the end of a long day of changing diapers (and at the bottom of your baby’s bum), that is all clearly the best value we know.
