WALL-MOUNTED BABY CHANGING TABLE

Wall-mounted hinged baby changing table suitable for wheelchair users.

DESCRIPTION

The hinged baby changing table is attached to the bathroom wall.

TIPSTER’S COMMENTS

The baby changing table is mounted at the right height for a walking person, but it also works well for the user, since he comes under it with his knees and is therefore close enough.

DIAPER CHANGE WITH BABY ON LAP

Technique for changing diapers that works for wheelchair users.

DESCRIPTION

Technique: Place a small towel on your lap and put the child on it. Pull down the baby’s pants as much as possible. Lay the baby on his/her stomach across your lap. Hold the baby with one hand under his/her arm, open the diaper from behind with your other hand and clean the baby’s bottom. Remove the diaper, sit the baby up and clean from the front. Take a new diaper, open it and place the baby on it. Attach the diaper. Put on the pants.

BABY CLOTHES

A crossover one piece outfit that has been modified.

DESCRIPTION

Crossover one piece outfits are convenient for dressing a small baby after a diaper change. Try to choose styles that do not have too many buttons.

TIPSTER’S COMMENTS

While the buttons can be tricky to snap, it’s easier than pulling a one-piece outfit over the baby’s head. And if you have weak fingers you can replace the buttons with Velcro.
