My 9-year-old cousin reminds me so much of myself. She loves lending a helping hand with the little ones and she’s such a natural already! I mean, how can you not be when you grow up surrounded by 22 cousins!
I decided to put my little helper to work this time since she is getting old enough and taught her how to change her first diaper! She was a little scared at first because she didn’t want to hurt little man but I assured her that everything would be okay!
Before we started I was chatting with her about how it is important to change them or at least check them regularly because you never want a baby sitting in a dirty diaper for too long.
We talked about the importance of never leaving a baby unattended, especially while changing them. I also told her that if she notices red marks on the baby’s thighs or around the diaper area, that she may have put it on too tight and to make a note for the next diaper change.
There are probably 15 different ways people change diapers nowadays but we kept it simple and mess free!
