Every pee and poop here too as long as we're at home. I check often. This is how I would want it if it was me wearing the diaper

Re: How often do you change?

As soon as I realize the diaper is wet. Like other mamas, I would check every so often to see if that's the case. I know some people care about how many pees a diaper can hold, and urine is "sterile" and all that . . . but I feel more comfortable changing after the first pee, if I can. I can't get past the ick-factor of a baby sitting in a wet diaper just because the diaper can "hold more" still :P

Agree with my girl and boy.

Re: How often do you change?

We change pretty much every waking hour since the rash monster came to town a few months ago. It's a lot easier to know when babe is wet since we are mostly PUL coverless at the moment. It keeps the rash away, and gives us an excuse to buy more diapers

very frequently... There's no time limit for me. If I let her go diaper less for a while, put a diaper on her, and find that she pees two minutes later, then I change her again.

Re: How often do you change?

I change every 2 hrs usually, the dipes I use can last 3-4 hrs though in a pinch, but DS2 tends to get a rash if I go that long. IMO they tend to potty train sooner for me if I don't leave them wet for long.

This. And both my littles were sensitive about wetness so I have to change as soon as they wet anyway. We EC some though so sometimes DD may go awhile I the same diaper w/o wetting it.

I generally change with every feeding so roughly every 2-3 hours. Even if her diaper isn't soaked I still change it because with my daughter it wont take her long to soak it to the point of leaking.
