***UPDATE Great review on www.drmomma.org; includes some good additional information for moms with smaller hands, special instructions for intact boys, and suggestions for changing surfaces. www.drmomma.org/2012/04/diaper-change-roll-technique-to-reduce.html***
Almost every parent changes their newborn with the double leg-lift technique, which looks convenient but might not be right for your baby. The roll technique, especially with newborns until they start crawling, may be a better option. Dr. John Edwards from Mama's Chiropractic Clinic demonstrates the technique and explains why. Filmed at the Great Cloth Diaper Change in Estero, FL. Mama's Chiropractic is a family practice with a special focus on the needs of expecting moms and children. Dr. Edwards is a member of the International Chiropractic Pediatrics Association.
