Los Angeles - Charlize Theron "loves" changing nappies since becoming a mother to son Jackson.

The Snow White and the Huntsman actress became a mother to the baby two months ago when she adopted him at just nine days old.

She told The Today Show: "I love it! I've got to tell you, I'm available for other babies' diapers to be changed. I can do it in my sleep now. I am so good."

The 36-year-old star admitted that she has even gotten practice in dressing her child in international styles of nappies after taking him on the press tour for her film.

She said: "I now know how to change a Japanese diaper, a Spanish diaper, an English diaper, a German diaper. I'm like the diaper pro now."

Charlize puts her parenting skills down to her mother Gerda's teachings.

She explained: "The one thing I'm grateful beyond anything else is that she raised me to always encourage me to be my own person... and that teaches great independence and confidence.

"And I would hope to have my son feel the same way about himself. And kind of go and discover the world in his own skin."
