  • Depends if you want them to have a very sore bottom. The feces are acidic and can cause some serious sores. Wake them up and change them. They will go back to sleep.

  • Change them right away! That's why babies get rashes. And I'm sure it's uncomfortable as well. JMO

  • Yeah I change them as soon as it happens. Now if she is asleep and I don't know about it till the next morning, but knowing about it is another thing. I wont let it sit b/c that just has to be uncomfortable. That and the rashes.

  • Change them right away!!! Be gentle and try your best not to wake sleeping baby.

  • Give it 5 minutes and change them. If they fall asleep hard enough, they wont wake up during a diaper change. And if they happen to wake up, itll be easy for them to fall back out!
