Changing a Nappy Routine

Changing a nappy:
When you change a child’s nappy you must make sure you have all the equipment around you so you don’t have to leave the child unattended while changing them for example you need a clean nappy, baby wipes, changing mat, sealable plastic bag to put the dirty nappy and wipes in, clean change of clothes if needed and any creams that has been supplied by the parents. The best idea to change a baby is on the floor on their changing mat because that way it is less risk of the baby hurting there self-falling off the mat. You must make sure it isn’t to cold for the baby in the area that you are changing them in because if you are un changing the baby taking their clothes off the baby will get to cold, by changing the child in a reasonable heated room it will help the baby to feel comfortable and cosy making them more relaxed while changing their nappy. You must also never leave the baby unattended. To start with place the child carefully on to the mat, undressing the bottom half of the child’s clothes, get a clean nappy and open it up making sure it is the right way round, then unstrap the child’s dirty nappy, unfolding the front of the nappy, then gently grab the child’s ankles lifting their legs slightly up in to the air so the baby’s bottom is a couple of inches from the floor. Then using the baby wipes to wipe the child’s bottom but to avoid the child getting genital infections wipe from back to front. Once the child is clean put any creams that the child needs but only if it has been supplied by the parents. Then once the child is all clean replace the child with a clean nappy making sure it is the right way round and making sure you haven’t fastened the nappy to tight or to loose. Then put the child’s clothes back on then making sure you have left the area clean and washing your hands after.

    Cloth vs Diapers

    • 1176 Words
    • 5 Pages

    Diapers have been used by humans throughout history. But, the word diaper did not originally refer to its use. Instead, the term originally referred to a type of cloth with a pattern of small repeated geometric shapes. The first diapers were made of a special type of soft cloth cut in geometric shapes. The method of creating geometric shapes in cloth was called diapering, but it eventually gave the name of the cloth used in making diapers back in 1590s in England. Diaper is used on children who are not yet toilet trained to prevent bed-wetting and to keep babies’ skin clean and dry. While it was originally made of cloth material, several variations and improvements were made on the diaper resulting in the creation of disposable diaper. Unlike cloth diapers which can be washed and reused multiple times, disposable diapers are thrown away after use (Leverich). The boom of the disposable diaper industry suggests that it is more preferred by parents that its cloth counterpart. Parents choose what they think is best for their baby. Hence, while the use of disposable diaper has become a trend, it actually has a number of disadvantages that may want parents to reconsider using cloth diapers.…

    I think the practitioner should change the child regularly and immediately after the child has soiled their nappy to avoid the child getting nappy rash. The practitioner should let the child collect the nappy and wipes to make the child feel involved in the routine and for the child to learn that the nappy and wipes are the items that are needed when it comes to changing their nappy. Any cream that the child needs for any skin infections should be with the items at the changing mat. It is important that the practitioner wipes the child thoroughly to prevent the child developing a nappy rash which is a bright red rash but often starts as a spotty rash. If the nappy rash is left untreated it could turn into sores. Nappy rashes are very painful for the child and practitioner must do everything to prevent children developing it. Changing nappy frequently helps to prevent nappy rash especially for children who are teething as they are more likely to develop nappy rash. For children that have nappy rash, having parent’s consent to use cream is needed. The practitioner should keep the child’s skin clean and dry as much as possible to give their nappy rash time to heal. The practitioner should wash their hands before and after the routine to prevent any cross contamination if that practitioner handles food or toys at the early years setting. Interaction between the…

    Being Read To At Night

    Being read to at night can be one of the best ways to go to sleep. I remember when I was a child when my mom would read me to sleep. It was one of the only ways I was able to sleep. My mom’s voice was so soothing and relaxing. I could hear her voice all day and night with no problem at all. What I liked about her reading to me was that she really engaged me with the story. Either by doing sound effects or saying something very loud or quiet. There were also nights where my dad would get involved. I loved it when they both read to me. It felt like a good family bond. All this happened in the house that I lived in my whole childhood. As I got older I got less interested in my parents reading to me at night. I would prefer watching television…

Secondly, the pediatrics published a story saying that listening to a story instead of having it read to them still however, it can still activate brain activity but nowhere near where it can be.

    b. Why you may ask? It has Talc in it. Talc is closely related to the potent carcinogen asbestos. Talc particles have been shown to cause tumors in the ovaries and lungs of cancer victims. For the last 30 years, scientists have closely scrutinized talc particles and found dangerous similarities to asbestos. Responding to this evidence in 1973, the FDA drafted a resolution that would limit the amount of asbestos-like fibers in cosmetic grade talc. However, no ruling has ever been made and today, cosmetic grade talc remains non-regulated by the federal government. Talc is used on babies because it…
