It might also depend on the brand of diapers. I know with cloth diaper (esp prefolds) they do need changing every two hours or so. Disposables don't need to be changed as often, but I find that cheaper brands of disposables need to be changed more often than the more expensive ones - like Huggies Supreme.
Also some people lose more fluid through sweat than others. I barely ever sweat - even when it's really, really hot out so I'm drinking water and using the bathroom all the time. My dh sweats a LOT and doesn't need to go as often - in the summer heat - he seems to lose much of his fluid through sweat.
Some people also have more bladder capacity and go longer between urinating. My ds Michael would be dry for hours - but then just soak a diaper all at once where the girls both peed little amounts every couple hours (but still insisted on being changed after every time).
