With our newborn, we change her right when she wakes up to eat. By changing her then, she goes back to sleep when she is finished eating. With my son, we changed him in the middle of feedings (never side nursed in bed with him) until he started sleeping through the night. We used a stay dry liner with a super soaking fitted and wool so we didn't change at all at night. I agree that good sleep is the most important thing for us. I guess it is all about what you feel comfortable doing. We have a "don't wake a sleeping dragon...I mean baby" rule in our house. I would never wake a baby at night just for a diaper change. Now, I have woken a baby to avoid pumping...once, but that was a different story.
