Technique for changing diapers that works for wheelchair users.
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.

A crossover one piece outfit that has been modified.
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.
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.
