When you begin to diaper boys, it is important to remember that there are important, key differences in diapering a boy verses a girl. Diapering a boy can be challenging due to differences in anatomy. Being a parent means that you will have plenty of opportunities to learn how to change diapers so that they fit properly and will provide the maximum amount of dryness for your little one. Changing a diaper on a baby boy is quite easy. First, lay the baby down on a changing table or other suitable location. You will want to use baby wipes to clean the lower extremities of the infant. Allow the baby to briefly air dry before placing the diaper on. When using baby wipes, it is important that the skin is dry before you put the clean diaper on. The trick to a squirt-free experience is making sure that genitals do not come into contact with cold air. Placing a soft cloth such as a towel, extra soaker, burp cloth, or diaper over the genitals will usually help prevent this unpleasant experience. Many parents will also keep a small towel or extra liner handy during changes in case of accidents involving projected urine. Next, slide the diaper under the baby and fasten the snaps around the waist. When you diaper boys, it is very important that the diaper fits properly. The diaper should fit snugly across the waistline so that there is no pinching, but it should be tight enough that urine and poo does not escape. The top line of the diaper should be even with the belly button. In many ways, the process of sandwiching a diaper onto the newborn is similar to folding a burrito shell.
