I would expect between 3-4 hours, most of mine do last this long, although some last longer than other's!

Up to 4 hours unless we have cotton or minki pockets so we might last in them only 2-3 hours.

LOL - we're the samewith fitted and pocket days - it's so I can get it all washed,dried and made up as I hate having to search for inserts when trying to clean up explosive poop!!

We usually change every 2.5 - max 4 hrs. Lo is a very heavy wetter, so constantly changing and checking!

As I said on my other thread, I certainly expect them to last more than 2 hours. I prefer 3-4 hours. I could live with every 3 hours.

Saying that, sometimes it is every 2 hours, like when she's teething badly and her wee is acidic and burns her bum :(

In the morning, every 1.5-2 hours. In the afternoon every 2-3 hours. But if I am at home and notice she's wet, I change her pretty much straight away. Probably DD doesn't mind being wet, it just looks uncomfortable to me!
I just ordered some nappies in the next size up, I hope we can make it 3 hours now when out, without worrying about leaking.
Lately I have been checking every hour when at home, and if dry sitting her on the potty.
