I would like to know how often you change your DC's diaper. I am assuming everyone here uses CD's.<br><br>
I am currently changing my DS's diaper 7 to 12 times during a 12 hour period. I put his night time diaper on at 9PM and I change it anytime after 7AM. (He could be in it 12 to 13 hours <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/bag.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Bag">: )<br><br>
Also, how old is your DC.

I change ds every 1-2 hours...depending on whether we are at home or out and about...and also sometimes depending on what dipe he has on and it's absorbancy. If he poops, I always change it immediately.

DD is 9 months old. She goes through approx. 20 diapers in a day - sometimes as many as 28 or 30. Never less than 18.

OMGoddess you mamas are ON the bum changes! I change my daughter every 2-3 hours on average. As often as every 30-60 mins sometimes (if she is at home coverless), or as seldom as once in 4-5 hours (if we are out and/or I forget).<br><br>
Overnight I don't change her at all - we're looking at 8-10 hours.<br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/bag.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Bag">: But I'm not doing it any more often, coz I would go crazy.

My ds is 11 months old. We don't change him at night b/c we all need our sleep. :LOL I just stuff a Schnoogly to its limit & put a wool cover or soaker on over it. During the day, I change him about every 30-45 minutes if he's wearing a flat, and every 60-90 minutes if he's wearing a fitted. Of course, I also change him immediately when he poops.

I think we average 12 diapers a day, sometimes more. She sleeps about 8-10 hours at night so I guess every 1 1/2 hours or so. It sure seems like I do it more often than that, so maybe we go through more than that.

I love being at home with my DS coverless, I can look at the diaper across the room and tell its wet sometimes. It makes me feel bad when my DF and I are one the road (we are mystery shoppers) and I don't get to change my DS's diaper oftern enough, 2 hours is my limit for the awake hours.

I change the diaper every time it gets wet/soiled. I think I go through about 12-17 every 24 hours. My baby pees A LOT! :LOL

Gunner is 4 months old and we go through about 15-18 dipes a day. I couldnt say how many per hour since sometiems I change 3 in 45 minutes then when I go to change him an hour later he is dry and still dry an hour again.<br>
He is actually pretty good at letting me know when he needs to be changed - that and being hungry are the only time he fusses.

My dd is 21m and I change her whenever I notice she's wet or poopy. Easily 10-12 changes a day, even more. When we are out, especially if we are out all day, she wears fb and I try to change her every 60-90m. Right away if she's pooped, of course. She goes 11-12 hrs in her overnight diaper and I don't change her, though I do as soon as she wakes up for the day. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

I go through 10 a day for two 11 month olds in diapers. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/bag.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Bag">: I mainly use pocket diapers and I rarely have a leak and I can't remember the last time either one of them had diaper rash. I feel like I don't change them enough reading this.<br><br>
I change when they get up, the again around noon, late afternoon, after dinner, and right before they go to bed. Both of mine poop first thing in the morning so that gets changed with the first diaper of the day. I don't change at night so that is 12 hours in the same diaper. During the day it's about every 3 hours.

Liam is 22 months old.. Honestly.. He's nekkid alot.. When He's in a diaper I change him when I notice he's wet.. He's either nekkid or in a prefold or 2 flats without a cover most of the time.. I change him about 5-6 times a day and he wears a sposie overnight.. He's not usually wet 1st thing in the morning.. So I change him sometime after breakfast when our oldest goes to school..<br><br>

during the day, i change as soon as he pees or poops! i know i wouldn't want to sit in wet or poopy underwear!<br><br>
but at night, he sleeps 12+ hours and i don't change him. he pees ~10 oz a night! we're trying to figure out a non-stinky, non rash nighttime system...<br><br>
ds is 13 months old.

Zach is 10 mos today. He's in his nighttime diaper 11-12 hours, but during the day he's changed about every 1 1/2-2 hours, or when he poos.

It's hard to say. I change my baby much more often than my toddler because he doesn't pee/poop as often.<br><br>
My toddler gets changed every couple of hours, although he is starting to use the potty a lot at home. My baby gets changed sporadically- like another poster said- he might go an hour and still be totally dry but then the next hour he might poop 3 times! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1"><br><br>
I'm going to guess that I go through about 14-16 dipes per day with my baby....about 6-8 per day with my toddler (unless he is using the potty at home or running around naked).

Orion gets changed every 2 hours usually. Sometimes longer as he has been holding it for a bit.<br><br>
Lourdes can go anywhere from 20 min to 2 hours max. During the morning, she is a very heavy wetter.

My dd will be 2 in a couple weeks, and wears fb with prefolds.<br><br>
She is not much of a drinker (ok that just sounds wrong!), so I'll change her about every 2-3 hours. She's has a lot of naked time too, which makes a difference.<br><br>
She sleeps through the night so we might go 12 or 13 hours in the night time diaper.

I change dd, 13 months old, as soon as she is wet or pooped. She is usually coverless at home so it is easy to tell and when she does wear a cover I am always reaching in to see if she is wet. At this point I don't think I even think about it anymore. :LOL Lately though she lets me know when she is about to go. We don't change her overnight but a bonus is that she has started staying dry for naps and overnight. I hope this can keep up so I can put a lighter diaper on her when it starts getting really hot.
