How many times a day on average do you change your newborns diaper?

  1. What about your 2,3,4,5 month old?

    I have a friend who thought I was nuts to use up to 10 diapers in a day (usually 6-10). She said disposable diapers are each good for 12 hours unless it is a poo and then you should change it!

    She goes through one package of diapers a MONTH! while I go through one package a week. My baby is 4 weeks, hers is 3 1/2 months. She has never used more than 3 diapers in a day, she usually only uses 2!
    Am I wrong or is she a complete nutter?

    3 in a day?! Yes desposable dipers are good for 8-12 hours a day but would you realy want to have someting that was soaked in pee against your skin for 12 hours?
    When i worked in child care we changed nappys every 4 hours, even if they were not that wet, sometimes sooner if we knew they had a rash.

    Shes a complete nutter!

    same with me , i mean my baby,lol
    he hated dirty bum so 8-12 within 24hrs. 2-3 a day for her baby is crazy, it';s not nice for baby to have wet or dirty nappies against their bum n penis ,they just can;t tell you
    i used to change his bum 3-5 times a night when newborn, one time we had 15 wet n dirty nappies in the bin,lol
    now he's 8 months old and i use about 3-4 within 24hrs

    Newborns tend to need changed 8-12 times a day.

    I feel incredibly sorry for you friends child. Being left to lie in it's own urine like that. There is only so much a nappy can wick away before it just lies against the baby's skin. So much bacteria....does it have a lot of nappy rash? :(

    Ick! Three a day?!! Jasper was a real pooper...I went through alot of diapers with him. He would probably poop at least 10 times a day...never mind the pees! Makena was a every couple days pooper. So, I probably did about 8-10 diapers a day.

    eww 3 a day! thats really bad. I hate the thought of Erin being uncomfortable so I change her loads. Plus she poo's all the time (always in a clean nappy) so I go through quite a few.
