Nappy changing routine


 Share

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

This may sound like a really strange question but in terms of nappy changing what does everyone do. we currently have set times in the day where all children are changed, but then we do additional changes as and when necessary. But my question is what is a reasonable amount of time between nappy changes?

 

our first change is also at 10am but the children do not arrive until 8.15 so it seems pretty quick

We change nappies as and when needed - if they aren't wet etc then they're not changed..... Those children who are in from 9-3 used to get changed before lunch no matter what but we have a few at the moment who just don't wee or anything during the day so they're not changed - this was decided with parents who said it was pointless changing if not needed.

 

Those children who are in just for a 3 hour session also don't get changed if they don't 'need' it

 

p.s the parents of the children who don't seem to wee throughout the day have been spoken to regarding it being unusual :)

We change as needed if obviously wet or soiled. During a 3 hour morning session, all children are changed before they go home.

If a child is completely dry, we don't change. All noted in a nappy log..ie time changed, wet, soiled, sat on potty, did a wee or did nothing! Ah...the joys of paperwork.

As and when needed , those staying for morning only are changed if needed before going home , those whose nappies are dry we speak to parents regarding toilet training , we have a rota so that one person is responsible but others change if necessary .

Thanks for your opinions guys. I was just curious, children are only with us for 3 4/5 hours per day (8- 12) and 12.10- 3.55. I was unsure as to whether for a session of this length children should be changed unless they need to be ?

 

We do have some children stay all day so they would definatly need a scheduled change around lunchtime.
