My 20 month old pooped while napping. I decided to wait until he awoke before changing him. My friend thought I should have woken him, changed him and hoped he fell asleep again. What would you have done?

  • I would have changed the baby when they woke up...unless it was leaking out of the diaper!

  • I would have woke up my daughter. She gets sore easily. BUT, it was ok you did that.

  • I would have changed him to avoid chance of irritating the diaper area. Probably I would have changed him right in the bed so that I disturbed him as little as possible.
