Everyday Tips From Everyday Mums

We asked for your top nappy changing tips and have chosen the best ones to share with you.

‘My daughter has what I call 'teething poops' and when she does I have to act quickly. I don't know why they are so different but they make her extremely sore as soon as she's pooped yet are relatively odour free! I always use a nappy rash prevention barrier cream but when she's teething I'm extra vigilant. If a teething poop has appeared, I change her straight away and apply Metanium nappy rash treatment at every nappy change. It usually clears within a day! Teething poops are the worst.’

Amanda, mum to Esme aged 7 months

‘Expect the unexpected with nappy changes and remember that whatever poo-mageddon disasters you are currently experiencing, it will end up as a fantastic story to share with your fellow parents and friends!’

Kate, mum to Elsie and Paddy

‘When changing a nappy, slide a clean one under the dirty one so that if your baby decides to have a wee mid-change,you can catch it easily. Also, always have 2 lots of Metanium handy - one for your changing table at home and one for the changing bag!’

Jayne, mum to Barney and Cobie-Lily

'Always make sure you have everything to hand before changing the nappy, like nappy sacks, cream, nappies and wipes. Have everything open and ready to use.

It’s much easier than trying to hold your baby with one hand and reaching for a clean nappy with the other!'

Amy, mum to Emily and Katie

'My little man has a magic trick of pooping EVERY time we go in the car - even if I'm just dashing to the shop. I've learned to keep an emergency kit handy for those times when I've run out of the house without the changing bag.

I pop a clean nappy into a nappy bag and keep a travel size pack of wipes in the glove box plus a small tube of Metanium Everyday - that way I'm never caught out!'

Jodie, mum to Nathan and Owen

‘Have a colourful mobile hanging above the changing area at home. It keeps them happy and distracts them from rolling around!’

Jennifer, mum to Toby and Seren
