Description
Technique: Cover your lap with a small towel and place the child on it. Pull down the child’s pants as far as possible. Place the child on its stomach across your lap. Hold the child with one hand under its arm, open the diaper from behind with the other hand and clean the child’s bottom. Remove the diaper, seat the child on your lap and clean from the front. Take a new diaper, open it and place the child on it. Fasten the diaper. Pull on the pants.
