2. Wet or Dirty Diaper

A wet or dirty diaper can cause discomfort and lead to episodes of crying. It's worth doing a quick check to see if their diaper is clean and dry if the baby seems distressed.

Regular diaper changes are important for maintaining good hygiene and protecting the baby's delicate skin. Newborns are expected to wet or soil around ten diapers per day. Sometimes, a baby's skin can become sore, or a rash can develop due to irritation caused by their bowel movements. By applying a thin layer of barrier cream to the area you can prevent the skin coming into direct contact with any pee or poo.
