Changing diaper after one pee?

Posted by   + Show Post
My SO and his mom say they change a baby's diaper every time they pee. I never heard of that. I always waited until the diaper was peed in a decent amount. Otherwise, that's a lot of diapers and lots of changes.

I never even heard of that before. I mean, if it was wet, I'd change it. But "sitting in their own pee" is all they know, so it probably isn't bothersome unless it is left for a long time. I just changed DD every 2-3 hours when she was in diapers.

I cloth diapered, so as soon as the diaper felt wet to me, I changed it. 
I would check constantly.
I hated the idea of my daughter sitting in her urine.

I change as soon as I notice its wet. Whether that's one pee or three.

so you let your kid sit in a wet diaper , where they can get diaper rash. Good luck when CPS is at your door

When they are old enough to tell me they pee, yes, if they only peed once I change them. When they were younger, it was whenever I knew they peed (either I'd check or the diaper would look "saggy" rather than normal). I wouldn't purposefully leave them in a wet diaper. 1) They all got yeast rashes and 2) It's nasty.
