  • poop I do about three or four depending on the severity lol and one to two for PP ones. Sometimes my DS gets BAD diapers where I go through like ten lol hardly ever though...when those times come I through him in the bath.

  • It depends on how bad the poo is. Pee, well unless it's pretty saturated I don't use them. Urine is the same PH as the babies skin and wiping after every pee diaper can actually increase the risk of diaper rash because the skin needs to sort of reset the PH balance making the skin more sensitive.

    I am very observant with my DD's diapers so unless had gotten too wet, smelled like ammonia, she didn't need a wipe (for pee) and she has only had a couple diaper rashes from diarrhea.

  • We used washcloths and warm water, sometimes a little olive oil for extra cleaning and moisturizing.

  • For peeing, we use 2. I use one to put over the cannon so I don't get peed on. Poop, probably about ten. But I put one over the cannon and one under his butt so I don't get anything on the changing pad cover. We go through way too many.

  • Anywhere from 2-4, depending on how bad the mess is.
    I also like to use a warm washcloth for an extra cleansing, let her air dry a bit, and pat her crevices (the groin area where her chubby legs are) with a towel so they aren't moist..
    I also give her a bath daily - every other day at the very least.

  • We use cloth wipes and we have different wipes for different kinds of messes. Flannel on flannel, flannel on bamboo, flannel on terry, and knit on terry. For toddler poops its usually 4. For EBF poops its usually ..... well.... a lot because she only poops every other day and it just keeps coming when you wipe lol.
