    Can I suggest two simple steps? 1. Before you even start, unfold the new nappy under the baby's bottom. That way when you slide the old one off they are immediately sat on something disposable not the floor or change mat should they let rip anew. 2. If you have a boy baby, a tissue folded in half and dropped on top of the water cannon will stop you from getting hosed down in the inevitable event of them wetting while the nappy is off.
