Nappy Changes 👶🏽

Nappy changes are an important part of having a child. But not necessarily a part that anyone particularly likes, right? Well, what happens if we shift that focus and allow nappy change time to become a positive, fun, and exciting experience for all involved 🥰 • Nappy change time can provide so many opportunities for learning if we just step back, slow down and allow the experience to flow. How often do you get quality, one on one time with your child? Nappy changes provide the perfect environment for that to occur 🌈 • Shifting nappy changes to a positive and relaxed experience allows you to build a respectful, trusting relationship with your little one 👩‍👧 • Creating an open flow of communication, using language role modelling, and introducing new words helps not only build your relationship but also the child’s receptive and expressive language skills as well as stimulating their brain 🧠 • Consistent, positive nappy change experiences can go a long way to develop strong body positivity, self-esteem, and resilience in our children 💪🏻 • Try allowing your child to be a part of the process. Let them get their new nappy out, pass you the wipes, explain to them the process you are using. This will give them a sense of achievement and even create space for a much smoother transition to toileting later on 🚽 • Nappy changes create opportunities for early maths learning. Count the steps you are taking, count the wipes, count their toes. All of these are creating brain pathways to extend their future thinking skills 🔢 • Next time you are changing your child’s nappy, slow down and allow the opportunities in. Create that beautiful space for your child to thrive 🤍
