Lesson 5: Dirty nappies

Cleaning nappies is an skill on itself, a very advanced skill that most mums are not able to master until late and by then the babies are no longer using nappies. (only joking, you will get the handle of it in a couple of fail attempts)

A dry nappy means a happy baby!

It may look like I am exaggerating but how many mums have looked at a very messy nappy and almost started crying?
Here are some of my tricks based on my and other people's stories and experiences:

  • You can rate how messy is a nappy by the number of wet towels needed to clean it. The more, the messier!
  • Always, always, always remember to take out the floppy part of the leg cuffs. It is one of the little tricks to avoid any spills.
  • Use the bath for extreme situations: Ive had to do it 3-4 times in 11 months and don't regret it.
  • Bin those vests that are too dirty. How much is a new vest? Is it worth the handwash?
  • If the vest is beyond salvation and you can't be bother cleaning the whole baby (e.g. During the night or on a busy moment) cut the baby's vest and avoid spreading the mess.
 Any other tips or tricks?

For those of your that are completely newbies on this faboulous skill, here is a video of how to do it:
