Nappy area care
- When your baby is a baby you have a lot of things you need to do for him, including taking care of the nappy area so it's important to change your baby's diapers frequently and wipe his skin with baby wipes gently but thoroughly each time.
- Next, apply KiddiSoft Nappy Cream to your baby's bottom or gently dab it with warm water from a spray bottle before gently drying it off.

Tips when changing a diaper
Before changing a diaper for your child, there are a number of instructions that must be taken into account to make it easy and simple as follows:
- Gently wash the skin with warm water where you can also put warm water on your child's bottom using a squeeze bottle.
- If you use soap, make sure it is gentle and unscented.
- Gently dry the skin with a small cloth.
- Apply Vaseline paste or ointment to the skin.
- Use disposable nappies instead of cloth nappies because they are more effective at absorbing moisture from the skin.
- Allow your baby's bottom to breathe occasionally without a diaper. Your baby can be laid on the floor on a large towel or waterproof sheet.
- Use dry baby wipes only.
- Avoid rubbing the skin.
- When your child simply urinates into the diaper, avoid wiping all the paste or ointment with each change of diaper and wash with warm water only.
