Changing your baby's nappy may only take a couple of minutes, but given that each of your children may go through upwards of 4,000 nappies, that's somewhere in the region of a whole week, non-stop, changing nappies...for each child! If you're going to spend so long at the task, you may as well try and make it a slightly more enjoyable experience!

For toddlers, use the time to play colour games, recite the alphabet or practice counting.  Sing lullabies and nursery rhymes, and just talk with younger babies.  The more spoken or sung language that children are exposed to, the more quickly they will become familiar with it and the quicker they will learn both to understand language and later, to speak it.

You can also give babies sensory objects to handle during a nappy change.  Sensory toys are designed to stimulate baby's, giving them interesting textures and feels.  Sensory toys will give your baby something engaging to play with while you do the dirty work, changing their nappy!
