wake baby to change poopy diaper?

It is a struggle to get my LO to take a nap. She finally went down for a nap and I noticed the poopy smell. She pooped. Should I wake her to change the diaper or not? If I wake her she will not go back to sleep. But I feel guilty for letting her soak in her poo.

  • She could end up with a diaper rash if left alone. I'd be torn too, but I'd probably end up changing it. I'd try not to wake her though! Good luck!

  • Definitely change the diaper.  Knowingly leaving a baby in a poopy diaper is a no no.

  • lo stands for little one. i would change the diaper. she could get a rash. just try to change her quietly and while she is still in bed. so you don't have to move her. maybe you should start putting her in a fresh diaper at nap time.
