6 Let The Baby Be Diaper-Free

When your little one is first born, their body has to take the time to adjust. As anyone can imagine, living inside a fluid filled womb for nine months can be a stark difference to the outside world.

Allowing your baby to go diaper free can help your baby’s skin breathe and lower the likelihood of them getting a rash or irritation on their bottoms. Before you snatch off your little one’s diaper, you want to make sure that the room or home is the right temperature and that your baby is between feedings so they aren’t likely to go to the bathroom outside of their diaper.
