Thank you to Huggies for sponsoring today’s post and inspiring me to try Huggies Little Movers Diapers! #MyLittleMover
My little mover is always on the go these days. He still enjoys a good cuddle with mommy, but for the most part he wants to play! I can’t believe that we are already at the 6 month mark and almost 7 now. He’s not yet crawling, but he really knows how to get around by scooting and rolling. One of the challenges that comes with having a mobile baby is one that you might not think about right away and that is the challenge of diaper changes. My little one will no longer just sit there during a diaper change and he wants to move all around! It’s something that has happened with all of my kids once they start getting more active. I’ve learned a few tips along the way and thought I would share them here.
Tip 1: Invest in a diaper changing mat or kids mat that you can place on the floor for changes. Long gone are the days of using the diaper changing pad for us! His little legs are strong and quick… too quick for comfort on a changing table.
Tip 2: Have something near that your little mover can look at. Today it was this box of Huggies Little Movers Diapers! This distracts him so that he stays in one place long enough to change him.
Tip 3: Keep a toy nearby that he/ she can hold onto while you are changing the diaper. This usually works well when he is being extra active. Sometimes my little one tightens his legs up and refuses to be changed if he feels I am interrupting his play time. I make sure to make the diaper change quick but fun for him.
Tip 4: Be thorough but quick! Make sure that everything you need is handy before starting… wipes etc. so that you can go as quickly as possible. It also helps to have a quality diaper like Huggies Little Movers to ensure that there are no tab breaks or leaks while changing. The Huggies Little Movers has a unique contoured shape with a comfortable fit that is really easy to put on.
Tip 5: Have fun! Make sure your little one associates diaper changes with good times. I just make sure that my little mover goes right from the diaper change to playing with his toys again and this helps to prevent him getting upset over having to be changed.
