    Default nappy change and aprons

    Do you wear an disposable apron when changing nappies?

    I never do and have never been told to.Unlike a nursery we aren't changing nappy after nappy after nappy.Wear disaposable gloves though at times.

    Time Out.. The perfect time for thinking about what you're going to destroy next.

    I was given some aprons once, so thought I'd try them, but to be honest, they were more of a hindrance than a help.

    I do wear gloves though. Once I started using them, I've never gone back to changing nappies without them.

    nope, I change nappies on a mat on the floor and an apron would get in the way.

    I have gloves always to hand, but only use for messy nappies or if a child is taking antibiotics etc

    Yes I do. Only because I am in Scotland and we have too. They are a total pain. I have to change nappies on a mat on the floor in my bathroom. I have a tiny bathroom. Storing them is also a pain as the only ones I could find to buy were online and came in a pack of 100. I have a tiny bathroom so storing them, nappies, sudocream, gloves, wipes becomes a pain.

    I've then also got to dispose of the apron after each nappy change. Don't have alot of bin space.

    I was told by my registration inspector that I had to use them as spores get on my clothes from changing a nappy and I could be carrying these spores anywhere.

    I don't plan too, as they were such a pain at pre-school. I have however bought lots of gloves for all those lovely poo nappies! x
