Diaper changing can offer a host of challenges, especially when you’re on the go. That’s why always being prepared is important. While parents may quickly become pros at packing their trusty diaper bags, oftentimes they miss one essential item to ensure their baby’s safety and well-being, as well as their own: disinfectant. We've got a couple of simple diaper changing tips that should help you to get diaper changing areas clean and healthy for your baby:
- Prep your space: When you’re changing diapers at home, you know the last time you cleaned your changing table. (Hopefully, right after the last time you used it.) However, when you’re on the go, typically the only way to know whether or not the changing table you’re about to place your child on is safe and sanitary is by cleaning it yourself. This is where Dettol® Multi-Use Wipes can come in handy. Always carry wipes with you and give the space a good wipe-down before you place your baby on it.
- Go about your diaper changing business. When you’re finished, show some respect for your fellow moms and dads: clean up the space for them, just like you would at home. Everybody deserves a happy, healthy baby!
- Wipe down anything you’ve touched, as well, like any rash cream containers, for instance.
- Wash your hands when you’re done! Despite your disinfecting, you’ve still been around some nasty stuff afterwards. Don’t share dangerous germs with your child by washing up after you’re done with the process.
Use our tips to get through your own baby's diaper changing stage safely, and keep in mind that this phase won't last forever!
