How often do you change a little one?

Before I start, I hope I do not seem accusatory and I apologize if I do, I was just utterly shocked when I heard this.


I was at a mommy meet-up and I was talking to another mom there (I met her today). She has a little one who is 8 months (I believe that is what she said).

I have been using modern cloth diapers for 9 months now and she asked about them. I mentioned how much we have saved and she said something along the lines of "diapers aren't that expensive since you only have to use like 2 a day."

My jaw dropped. She said she used the pampers 12 hour diapers so that she only needed 2 a day unless her LO pooped.


I hate to judge another mom but I was and I am shocked. I tried to nicely say that just because they say that it's for like night-time wear and she said I knew nothing of how great disposable diapers are at absorbing because we don't use them.

I don't think it has anything to do with desposaible or cloth but that a wet diaper need to be changed.


Sorry but I just had to ask, do other moms think this way or consider 2 changes per day "normal"??

I change my daughters diaper as soon as I notice that its wet. Some say it ridiculous to change after every pee, but I wouldn't want to sit in my own pee and I won't make her. I did the same with my son.

Not unless you are going for a really nice diaper rash or yeast infection on your LO's bum. What a jerk. Poor baby.

I change the diaper when it needs to be changed.  Times vary. I do have a friend that used to buy her daughter diapers a size to big because they absorbed more and didnt change them till they were super full. I thought it was weird but her daughter never had an issue. ::shrug:: to each their own I guess.

I change my 9 month old maybe 10 times a day, which includes 2 or 3 poops. If she's only changing her baby twice a day s/he either isn't peeing enough or is sitting in a VERY full diaper.

Way more than twice a day. Talk about taking labels literally.
