  • Put 4 tablespoons on water in a new diaper. That is what a "wet" diaper feels like.

  • Any moisture.

    Having said that, the new disposable diapers are made so that you can't feel it on the inside to see if it is wet. it helps to squish it from the outside...with an "Aussie Grab". Try putting her in a cloth diaper for a day or two and you can really tell if she is wetting enough.

  • Does she drink enough? Some moms let them wet their daiper a few times before changing, others change it as soon as they wet their daiper. But, i think you'd know if it was too full. It will usualy hang low & is heavy. If she is not peeing enough, then she is not taking in enough fluids. Give her a big drink, let her sit in her daiper for for like 1.5 - 2 hours & see how much pee is in there. If it's still pretty dry, i'd ask her Dr. what's up. She may be holding too much water in her system.

  • Well when my daughter was a newborn I wouldnt change every time she peed because we would be going through 200 diapers a week that way. I stick my finger inside and if it felt wet to the touch on the inside I would change it. sounds gross I know but we werent exactly "well off" when she was born as daddy had lost his job so we just strecthed things out where we could.

  • I always used the poke test. If it stayed in when poked in the front,it was time for a change

  • I agree with SuperrMommyy. Any moisture makes it wet.
