Frequently asked nappy questions

If your baby's nappy is leaking this could be an indication that they're wearing the wrong size. Use the tool below to find a good fit for your baby, and take note of our size-up graphic at the bottom of this page so you know when they're ready to move up again.
Babies need their nappies changing A LOT! In the first year, you could make somewhere in the region of 3,000 nappy changes!
The truth is, there's nothing you can do to prevent 'surprises' while you're changing your baby's nappy. The best thing you can do is make sure you're using a mat and have a muslin or spare nappy ready to go (or act as a shield!)
Firstly, you should never leave your baby alone while changing them. Babies have a habit of wriggling around while you're trying to get the job done, so it's often better to change them on the floor for safety. You can also try distraction techniques to get them to stay still, such as giving them a toy to play with or singing their favourite song.
Babies should be changed as soon as possible after doing a poo to help prevent nappy rash. If they have very delicate and sensitive skin then they should be changed as soon as they wet themselves, too.
You should prepare by washing your hands and getting everything in one place ready for the change. You'll need a changing mat or towel, baby wipes, a nappy bag, barrier cream, a clean nappy and clean clothes.
Babies poo around four poos a day in the early days, reducing to around two per day by the end of the first year. If you're breastfeeding, then they might poo at every feed to start with, but then could go a few days without one after the six-week mark.
