Changing child's nappies in front of relatives

My daughter is two and a half years old. Am I allowed to change her diaper in front of her uncles or grandparents? What part of her body must be covered in public?

If she is in nappies, then there is no harm if you change her diaper in the presence of her mahram family members unless you fear that some trials will occur because of it or you fear that someone will be offended.

This is a matter of practical necessity. However, her private area should remain covered at all times when there is no need to expose it.
