Use this time to bond
This is a golden opportunity to get to know your baby several times throughout the day.
As you are learning over your baby, be sure to maintain eye contact and speak with him/her. It helps to think of this time as a moment where you can just talk to your baby, and keep them engaged.
Get to know your baby
Diaper changes are the perfect way to create and develop trust with your baby. Right now they see you as being their “safe space” and someone they can depend on. Reinforce that by giving loving and reassuring touches (such as hugs, kisses, etc;) to show her that she is loved.
Remember your baby is just a baby
This is still a brand new learning experience for both of you. He is still learning what his body feels like without clothing. Likewise, he is still experimenting with the movements that his body can make.
Fun, short, range of motion activities are a great way to keep your baby happy, and also allows you both to be engaged during this time.
5. Understand what your baby thinks and feels
Many active babies could not care less if their diapers are clean. They’re too busy to concern themselves with such trivial issues. It may be important to you, but it’s not a priority for your child.
Diaper rash or uncomfortable diapers (wrong size or bad fit) can make him dread diaper changes, so check these first. Once you’re sure all the practical issues are covered, make a few adjustments in this unavoidable process to make it more enjoyable.
When it’s all over make cleanup a breeze.
Now that you have used this time to bond with your baby, who wants to waste it on grabbing a trash bag and hauling stinky diapers to another room or outside?
The Diaper Genie® Complete Assembled Pail is the easiest pail to use and is the perfect nursery accessory for all parents who want a quick and convenient way to get rid of dirty diapers without doing a ton of extra work.

Dirty diaper can be a pain. Especially if you are only throwing them in a traditional trash can. The Diaper Genie Complete comes with ultimate odor lock. This is a built-in protection with odor-controlling antimicrobials, as well as double airtight clamps.
Even though this is my fifth child, I think I have only ever owned one Diaper Genie (it seriously lasted us through three kids!). So I can attest to the great quality!
Also, what I love is that it doesn’t matter if you use cloth diapers or disposable diapers, The Diaper Genie Complete is great at storing all of your dirty diapers!
