Well I have been noticing my baby girl is not wetting her diapers much anymore. I went on a diet trying to lose some baby weight and I think I decreased my milk supply. Well I went off the diet and she still isn't wetting much so I need to try other things, but I don't know what. She is 11 months and she is lucky is she wets twice during the day. She wakes up almost dry every morning....help :(

Hydrate yourself and nurse her often. Also at this age she can be drinking water with solids. I believe you only need 4 wet diapers a day at this age. And that's counting a dirty/wet diaper as two.

How wet are the diapers? Is she eating solids yet?

My 10 mo old has started waking up dry.  I seriously think she's trying not to because I'll take her diaper off, she crawls down the hall into the bathroom, stands up next to the toilet, and pees.  One of these days, I'll remember to start taking her diapers off IN the bathroom and having her pee sitting on the baby seat.  :-)

How often does she nurse?  Mine pretty much reverse cycles at this point (we co sleep) because her big brother and sister are just so much fun she doesn't want to stop and nurse during the day.

She nurses very frequently. I changed her 4 hours ago and she still hasn't wet yet :(

Omg I wonder if that's the problem. We keep the heat on 80. We are a bunch of big babies and hate the cold. I thought for sure going on a diet did something but maybe its just too warm?

They start peeing less frequently as they get older. Our bodies are not designed to use diapers. As they start moving themselves around they go less frequently because that's when they are physically ready to start potty training.

One wet so far today. She eats solids 3 times a day. She nurses a lot but she like to sip water too.

It might help to turn it down and just keep fluids going :) dry heat can pull moisture out of them so if you can turn it down for a while and keep liquids going you should see an increase in diapers.
