Haha how exciting it is to be a mom...topic: # of diaper changes?

I was just wondering while changing my son's diaper before he gets too tired for bed, that I really only use 3-4 diapers per day.

9AM-Change (dirty) diaper
2 or 3PM-Change (wet) diaper before bath and nap
7:30ishPM-Change (wet) diaper before bed

He's never had problems with a rash or anything, and I use a wipe for even wet diapers. Tell me, is this weird? How many do you guys usually use? My son's 9 months old by the way.

Please have fun with this! No bashing!

  • Nah that sounds pretty good. My DS went through about that many at that age and DD a little more. Basically I was the type of mom where I woudl change them in the morning and if it didn't look wet and uncomfortable or dirty I wouldn't worry about it until nap and then bed. When they got a bit older they could let me know if they needed a change.

  • Well I go through a ton. My daughter has really sensitive skin (just like mama) and if I do not change often, she gets a bad bad rash. We go through about 10 diapers in a day and she is almost 6.5 months.

  • My son is 14 months now and he goes through about 8 diapers a day. I change as soon as I noticed he has peed or ppoped.
