How often do you change?

I'm still new to CDing and was wondering how often you change a wet diaper? I realize that sounds stupid as I reread that ... I'm still used to sposies and we change them right away, but my BG don't feel wet when the soaker is. Obviously a poopy diaper should be changed right away, but just wondering how long you go before changing?

As soon as we notice- every 1-2 hours at home, usually 3-4 hours when out.

every 2 hours or so, if i notice she is wet before that than i change before. but even then sometimes we get to 2 hours (or go over if we get busy) and she'll be dry, like totally dry. but we generally stick to the 2 hour rule.

I change both babies at least every 2 hours or right away if they poop.

It really is harder to tell with cloth. My daughter was even less fussy on cloth and would get annoyed if I checked every hour- how often I checked with sposies. So, we ended up sticking to the 2 hr rule unless absorbency was an issue.
