Every Change Matters™: A Guide to Developmental Diapering Care
Every Change Matters™: A Guide to Developmental Diapering Care was developed by the Huggies® Nursing Advisory Council (HNAC), which is made up of experts in neonatal and perinatal nursing, therapy, and education, as well as an NICU parent advocate working collaboratively to deliver the best outcomes for babies.
How Every Change Matters™ was developed
Based on a review of more than 500 articles focused on developmental care, the HNAC discovered an opportunity for nurses to integrate, model and educate parents and other caregivers about the importance of developmental care, in addition to skin care, within the act of diapering.
Why Every Change Matters™
This is the first review to consider diapering within the context of developmental care — including skin care, physical development, sensory elements and bonding. Every Change Matters™ operationalizes developmental diapering care through five areas of focus referred to as the “Alliterative Cs”
- Calm & Clean
- Change & Check
- Champion Sleep
- Confidence & Closeness
Every Change Matters™ resources provide more information to learn, apply and share this new approach.
