As Nic has gotten older, stronger and squirmier, sometimes it’s just impossible to lay him down to change his diaper. Plus, when we’re out and about, there’s often not an available spot for traditional diaper changing. In light of this, we’ve turned to what I call, “The Stand Up Diaper Change.”
- Stand the toddler up
- Pull pants to the ankles
- Take off diaper
- Quick wipe
- Put clean diaper through legs and fasten
- Pull pants back up
- Ta da! Clean pants, no screaming and you didn’t have to lay him on the asphalt in the parking lot!
I do have one MAJOR caveat for the stand up change—it’s VERY risky with poop. It’s not impossible, but the probability that you’ll have to change his clothes, yours and rub hand sanitizer all over both of your bodies is relatively high.
