    I'll change him (= I will take his place doing sth)

    I've got a problem.
    I would like to express the following thing:
    My friend is going to look after my baby for 4 hours. But when I'm back I will change him.
    Is this correct?
    Can I express it in a different way?
    Maybe:
    "I will take turn"
    "I will take over from him"

    I'd be grateful for your help.

    Is this correct? No. That sounds like you're going to change the baby's nappy.
    Can I express it in a different way?
    Maybe:
    "I will take turn"
    "I will take over from him".

    Also "I will relieve him".
