Understatement of the year: diaper changing can be pretty gross. As the mom of two toddlers, I dream about potty training simply for the joy of not having to deal with diapers anymore. But, like a lot of aspects of parenting, diapers are just one of the necessary evils of raising children. No matter the kind of diapers you use or your child's unique "bowel movement habits," there are some especially gross things that happen when you don't change your baby's diaper enough — emphasizing the importance of biting the bullet and changing your kiddo's diaper as often as necessary.
Granted, these things are all pretty intuitive. You don't need to read a manual on reasons why you need to change your baby's diaper, but having a gentle reminder of all the gloriously nasty consequences that can happen as a result of not doing it enough is enough to make even the staunchest of diaper-haters rush to change every baby in the vicinity.
Whether your baby is 2 weeks old, 2 years old, or somewhere in between, knowing proper diapering "techniques" (a glamorous phrase for what it actually is like,) and the reasons why it's so important to keep your baby's booty clean, will help you not put off the inevitable diaper changes as gross as they may be.
