Hack To Restrain Your Baby During Diaper Changes

Found this great hack shared on a FB group (the poster didn’t cite their source unfortunately so please please comment if it is yours).

I’m sure I’m not the first one to think this would be useful, but the idea is to button up your baby’s onesie above his shoulder to keep him from reaching into his poop during diaper changes.

Mind blown!!! 🤯, what a great hack! 🙌

Our kiddo is a little older and she likes to unzip her clothes to take her diaper off. My genius husband figured out to use a “binder clip” (black metal triangle with the silver loops that fold back) to clamp over the top of the zipper.

Hopefully that makes sense and will help some other parents out there

My guy will reach for poop but, I’ve been handing him books to look at. Sometimes a toy but, he tends to toss them now. Lift flap books keep him even more interested in book over diaper contents.

Mine is almost 3 months. He hasn’t done it yet. Is this something that happens later? Or would he have done it already if he’s going to

I do this with my 1yo while we do stand up nappy changes. Keeps his shirt and vest from hanging down over his butt.

I do this often with my daughter. Helps a TON. She’s recently learned how to wriggle her arms out of it, though

My son used to have a colostomy bag when he was a baby and we had to change his bag all the time so we did this and it made it a million times easier!!

Yep. Been doing that since 5 months old. He’s now 17 months and I still snap the buttons to wash in bathtub after pooping😁

Mine is only 14 months, but has outgrown sizes that come in onesies, so this is a huge problem. The second his diaper comes off, poop hands

It’s helpful to keep the onesie from dangling when potty training too. You just pull it up under their arms instead of over.

Right now my challenge is preventing/discouraging the 9 month old from rolling onto her stomach as soon as I try to change the poopy diaper. 🤦🏻‍♀️

I use cloth wipes and used to throw a (clean) one on my kids face just before opening up the diaper. They’d reach for the cloth, I open up the diaper and clean up the poop, and no poop is grabbed. It works most of the time, anyway :). Now that the baby is a toddler, I hand her a board book or a hair brush or something before opening up the diaper to keep her hands out.

It’s really handy to button up onesies over the shoulder during toilet training so the tails don’t get peed on!

With 3 kids under 5, you just made me realize how lucky I am to have never experienced a kid grabbing their own poop. Is this a thing?

Oh my god. Literally the second my sons diaper comes off it’s off to the races for him to grab his balls – poop be damned. It’s not so bad when my husband is around so I can get him to grab his hands and distract him but if it’s only me my baby’s getting a handful of ball poop.

Someone shared this in a breastfeeding group and I kinda wish I had known this like 10 months ago 😐 now it makes sense why my baby likes the hold his bottle against him instead of upright.
