Distasteful as diaper changes may seem, you’ll soon be an old pro. In the first weeks, baby will go through about 10 to 12 every day—meaning you’ll be spending lots of time at the changing table. Use this checklist to make it comfortable.
• Changing table or cushioned changing pad for low dresser or bureau, with safety strap or railing
• Changing table pad
• Diaper cream
• Unscented baby wipes (causes less irritation)
• Soft washcloths
• 6 to 10 dozen cloth diapers and 6-8 diaper covers, or 2-3 large boxes of disposable newborn-size diapers
• Changing table pad cover
• Diaper pail liners
• Tissues (for you)
