Nappies is another term that is used in many other countries to describe diapers. Nappies just like diapers, come in both disposable and cloth versions, and are used the exact same way as diapers are used here in Canada and the United States.

The action of physically taking a child be it a baby, or a toddler, and paddling the child on the bottom with the inside flat of ones open hand. Spanking is done either on a clothed bottom, or a bare bottom, depending on the severity of ones child's actions, and the strictness of the parent administering the spanking.

Spanking: The actions of a parent, a babysitter, or a caregiver, repetitively striking or paddling a child, baby, or toddler, on the bottom with their open hand.

Traditionally, a container, holder, unit, receptacle, or other, specifically designed to contain used cloth diapers, until such a time that the diapers can be dealt with. Traditional diaper pails are usually cylindrical in shape, white in colour, have a removable lid, and are made out of plastic. By design, diaper pails much resemble that of a standard kitchen garbage pail, and are an absolute must have item in any household where there are babies wearing cloth diapers.
The diaper pail in the baby's bedroom contained several days worth of wet and dirty cloth diapers, rubber pants, and baby wash cloths.

After changing the baby, I opened the lid of the plastic diaper pail, and tossed the soiled diaper and rubber pants inside.

After coming inside from doing some gardening, I washed my hands, and went into the baby's room to do a diaper check on the toddler.

I did a diaper check on the babies by gently pulling back the front of their rubbber pants.

My favourite method in which to do a diaper check is by inserting my index finger inside the elastic leg opening of a baby's rubber pants.

A soft paper like, or fabric sheet used to line the inside of a baby's diaper with. Diaper liners are mainly used with cloth diapers, but can be used with disposable diapers as well. Diaper liners help prevent excessive soiling of diapers, particularly cloth diapers, eliminating the need for thorough rinsing and soaking after changing, while at the same time helping to provide a protective barrier between babies tender skin and the wet or soiled diapers, reducing the incidence of diaper rash.
Before putting the clean cloth diaper on my son, I placed a diaper liner inside the cloth diaper.

All of the babies in the dayhome wore cloth diapers with diaper liners and rubber pants.

My friend uses diaper liners on her children.
