how often do you change baby how many nappies a day?

Postby babyjjbaby » Wed Apr 15, 2009 2:40 pm

after somthing i have read on another site thought i'd ask a simular question so how many hours do you leave a nappy on in the day if not pooed, do you boost or use quite absorbent napppies, (haven't a clue how absorbent mothercare terry sqaures are which used alot and if i use weenotions or simular i use either bbos insert or 1 bamboo and 1 micro fibre insert or 1 cotton and 1 bamboo booster ),not sure if that is absorbent enought but hey ho ,and do you find that disposibles need changing less how do you tell when it changing b4 leaks :lol:

I would be disappointed if a nappy didn't last 4 hours, although I tend to change every 3.

I think it is tempting for people to leave disposables longer

I change Evie every 3 hours during the day assuming the nappy's just wet. I'm not boosting her nappies atm but she's still little and not a particularly heavy wetter I don't think.

About every 3hrs here too, though it has been more often today due to teething.

I changed disposables about 3hrly too, as I prefered to change them before they were sodden.

I used to change every 3 hours but sometimes it would be around 4 hours if we were out and about. Never really used sposies much so can't comment on how often :-?

Average about 2 to 3 hours during the day, night nappies are 12 hours.

between 2-4 hours depending on how much they've drunk and whether we're being overly busy! I don't tend to boost unless it's night time or a long car journey.

2-3 hours here too although occasionally Katie goes 4 hours between changes. So about 5 nappies a day excluding her night nappy.
