Well it’s time to change your mind! Did you know diaper changes are actually the perfect time to bond with your baby?
Just think about it. When else do you have your baby’s strict attention? They’re there gazing in your eyes just waiting for some fun interaction. There’s really no better time to bond with them through some fun games!
5 Fun Ways to Turn Dreaded Diaper Changes into Delight
Whether it’s a quick and easy #1 or a truly potent #2, these games will make diaper changes fun for both you and baby.
Get those little legs going with some kicking and counting! This is a game that I played with my little one right from the start. I just gently bicycle his legs as I count, “One, and two, and three…” all the way up to ten and finish with a big, “Yay Michael!” It’s amazing how fast they learn and start doing their “exercises” all by themselves when you count 🙂
“I’m gonna get that ____”
For us this one started out as “I’m gonna get that tongue,” when my little guy first started sticking his tongue out. But now that he’s bigger I just change it to whatever works that day. Sometimes I get that nose, that belly, or simply that baby. Whatever I’m “getting” he loves and I always get a chuckle.
This Little Piggie
I’m sure we all know this one! “This little piggie went to market, this little piggie stayed home…” I just started playing this one with my munchkin a few weeks ago and he totally gets ready for the big finish full of tickles and kisses when the last little piggie is “wee weeing all the way home!” 🙂
Just recently my cutie pie found his reflection. And boy does he LOVE it! We have a fun mirror toy that I hold above his head and he just talks and talks and talks to himself. It’s the cutest thing!!
1, 2…Poopy in the Pants!
Now this one is just too funny. I’m not even sure how it originally started, but all three of my kids loved it when they were babies. My older two even think it’s the best thing ever now when I’m changing their little brother. They ask me to please do the “One, two game” when I’m changing him! Are you ready for this one? It’s pretty complicated…
All I do is excitedly count as I’m unfastening each diaper tab and then say what’s inside as I open it up. For example, “One…two…poopy in the pants!”
Rocket science…I know! Haha! But they all got a kick out of it 🙂
It’s no fun if you aren’t using the right diaper!
No matter how hard you try, or how many games you play, diaper changes won’t be any fun if you aren’t using the right diaper! You need a diaper you can not only trust, but one that will help keep your newborn’s perfect skin clean, healthy, and cozy.
That’s where Huggies Little Snugglers comes in! They are designed with a pocketed-back waistband to help keep the mess inside where it belongs and a color-changing wetness indicator to let you know when your baby’s diaper is ready to be changed. With a breathable outer cover your baby will be comfortable and, to protect your baby’s naturally perfect skin, they are fragrance and lotion free.
Don’t forget about the wipes either…Huggies Natural Care Wipes have always been my favorite since I had my first child eight years ago and the wipes I always recommend to new moms. With a gentle clean for your baby’s naturally perfect skin, they are thick enough to handle any mess, with a texture that’s soft against your baby’s skin.
So here’s the deal…
Now that you know how to make diaper changes fun and you’ve found the perfect diaper for your little one, the only thing that could make things better would be a deal. And guess what? I’ve got just the deal for you!!
