I do it every morning before I've got him dressed and every evening before I get him ready for bed. I just lay him on his changing mat on the floor with a bambino mio prefold under his bum to catch any pee :) which doesn't always work, but hey ho... it's just a bit of wee :giggle:

We don't do it as a totally regular routine type thing, but probably a couple of times a week before his bath at night for anywhere between 10 minutes to an hour (basically, if a nappy needs changing with only 45 mins to bath time I don't bother putting a new one on). He runs around the house or sometimes the garden if the weather's good enough. As for avoiding wee everywhere, erm.... pretty impossible unless I was to follow him round with a prefold ready to throw under him. Luckily the entire downstairs of the house is wood/tile floored so it doesn't matter really, and out in the garden it matters even less :giggle:

After Iris has had breakfast, I have a shower. I've got into the habit of bringing her in with me for the last 5 minutes, rather than top and tail her in a morning. So after we've had a shower, I'll let her run around naked for 15 minutes while I get dressed. And then I do the same of an evening - Iris has a bath and gets to be naked for a while either just beforehand or just after. Any accidents just get mopped up; it's impossible to get a toddler to stay still. :giggle:

Ben has had a sore bum recently so I have been giving him 1/2 hour or 45 mins of nappy free time in the evening - Mark thinks I am crazy but we haven't had an accident yet, I don't know if he realises he has no nappy on or if we have just been very lucky as he poos all day long and they are horrid. Sorry tmi!
