Toddler Diaper Change

During changing time, see if there’s something safe and mirror-like to give your child. Point to their nose in the mirror and say, “There’s your nose. Can you find your mouth? Your eyes” Have a conversation about what they’re finding.

Even the most routine tasks, like diaper changing, provide opportunities for your child to explore and learn about the world. Finding parts of their face in the mirror and naming them builds concepts and vocabulary, and it’s fun too!
