I am always checking my son, if he has the smallest bit in his diaper I change him that very minute. And as for #2 I change them the moment I know he is done for sure.
But my best friend, whom I love dearly has a son and she lets him wear his diapers for so long, I mean long enough that they sag down and leak through his clothes, he even soaked my whole couch the last time they came over. And I have seen her let him wear #2 for at least 45 minutes before. I mean I just don't understand. He keeps horrible diaper rash and she acts like she doesn't know why he has it.
Other than this she is an overall really good mom to him, he is very well fed, lives in a nice home, has really good things, she pays so much attention to him, plays with him, and loves him. But to me the diaper issue is a BIG problem but I know it isn't really my place to say anything about it....What would you do? Would you say something? Or "Mind your own."?

when i can feel that the diaper has gotten mushy but not leaky for one and as soon as i noticed hes pooped which is usually right away because he comes and tells me... potty training please hurry up!!! lol (thats for my 2 year old) and as for my 8 month old I do the same and Ive never had any rash problems with either of them. as for u telling her- I cant really think of a way without u offending her- but maybe next time she is over and complaining about her childs rash say something like- well how many times do u change him? because when I had that problem I noticed that when i started changing him as soon as he went the rash would go away! and if she still doesn't get it- embarrass her the next time it leaks on ur couch- say u know, u really should start changing him before it gets that bad! and maybe shell be more conscious of it
