  • I chsnge my son when he wakes, and then before & after each nap. Unless he poops otherwise I change him immediately. He couldnt care less- hed sit in a dirty diaper ALL day. My little man has no shame, however Id prefer to not deal with rashes & yeast infections. Id say I go through about 8 a day.

  • The younger the child, the more frequently I check and change them. It helps prevent diaper rash.
    With a newborn I check upon waking, before a nap, before and after a feeding.
    As they get a bit older they seem not to go quite as often and so I relax a bit. I check at the same occasions, but as the child gets older those naps and feedings are more spaced out too.
    I've never kept track of diapers. My youngest is 2 1/2 now and tells me when he needs changed. He's just on the verge of being ready to potty train.

  • I change my son when he wakes up in the morning, before nap time, then in the afternoon, and then at bed time. And any poops are changed as soon as he's done.

    Also if he wants to pee on the potty I see how full his diaper is and if it seems wet I'll change him.

  • I change my bay immediately. We use cloth. But even if we used disposables I would still change her right away. I wouldn't want to sit in a depends after I went.
