We do changes every 2-3 hrs. Sooner if we get s dirty one.
At night the nappy is on about 10-11 hrs. But her bottom is dry so that's fine with us.

When mine were in cloth they would get changed every 3-4 hours and once at night if they were waking for a feed. I super boosted all my nappies to rule out 2 hourly changes.

We change the day nappies (mainly pockets) about every 3 hours, sooner if she poops or we're off out. Night nappy will be on about 12 hours.
We had a long journey yesterday with no chance to change her for 5 hours so I put her in a night nappy and that worked great.

3 hrly changes for Emily and her night nappy is on 12-13 hours. Her first nappy after her morning bath though will normally need changing after 1.5-2 hrs.

Same here. Every nappy is super boosted to avoid unnecessary changes. He's changed as soon as I now he's dirty.

2-3 hours as a rule, maybe longer if it isn't that wet. Overnight it is about 10 hours.

About every 3 hours ish during the day but not at all during the night- he wears WNNN or a disposable overnight and it's usually on for about 12 hours.

I'm not sure i could cope with changing every 90 minutes- he hates lying still for a change and atm (at 35 weeks pregnant) it can be quite a tricky exercise! I change him immediately if he's pooed of course, even if it's only been 10 minutes since i put the nappy on :roll: but taking poo out of the equation- every 1.5 hrs seems a lot! :shock:

This was the same for James. But, on average, it would be every two to three hours. I would never leave him longer than three hours though even if it didn't look/feel wet.
Overnight we used night nappies so that tended to be 12 hours or sometimes less if he woke up in the night, no more than one change though.
