night time diaper change poll

I just read through the bed sharing post and it got me wondering... How often do you change LO's diaper at night? We do it every time we feed her and she's FF. I saw that with the bed sharers many do it out of convenience so they can stay in bed to nurse so I'm assuming diapers aren't changed? Do you have leaks? Just wondering if I could get DD to sleep a little longer if she's not so roused from the changes...

Re: night time diaper change poll

  • We CD and I put DD in a fitted with a fleece liner + doubler in a bummi or flip cover.  I change her between 11pm-midnight and then whenever she wakes up next, usually 6-7am.  So far we're leak free.  On the nights I remember to get up arou

  • I don't bed share, but I do change DDs diaper when she gets up to eat. She is in a bassinet next to the bed, but I get up and go out to the living room to feed her because DH doesn't like to be woken up. 

    I find that she sleeps longer after

  • Our little guy sleeps in 4 hour stretches so every time he wakes up to feed, I change him too.

  • I keep diapers, wipes, coconut oil, hand sanitizer, a wetbag and extra sleepers on my bedside table so there is no need for my feet to touch the floor in the night.  I don't get out of bed at all (unless I need to use the washroom).  However, he

  • My LO is eating about every 2-3 hours day and night, but I'll get up to change him every 2 feedings or so during the night... so, roughly every 4 hours.

  • I only change if there is an obvious leak or poop, or if LO is having a difficult time settling back into sleep. In the past few weeks, this has only happened a couple of times.

  • I get up and change it once around 2:00 when he wakes up, and before I go to bed around 10:00.  He's good until he wakes up for the day around 5:00 or 6:00.  My 2 year old is up.for.the.day. around 5:00 or 6:00, so the rest of us are too

  • he gets his last diaper change when we go to bed at midnight and he doesn't need changed again until we all wake up at 8 am. he's a magical baby, i think.

  • I only change DSs diaper if he has pooped in it. But usually he poops during his feeding so we end up with a change during every night feeding. This morning at his 6 am feeding he didn't poop in his diaper so I left him in it. His usual day starts around

  • DD wiggles and grunts if her diaper is wet or dirty. It wakes me up and I have to change it. I usually remember to keep diapers, wipes and maybe some coconut oil bedside to change her without getting out of bed. Sometimes she wakes up to eat a little, but

  • I don't anymore. I stopped because DS was basically STTN from 10p to 430a. I figured, what's another couple hours? Now he usually sleep until 6. Also, he's never been a night pooper.

  • Unless she poops or leaks, we don't change her at night (we also FF). We did the first 8 weeks or so, but once she was consistently sleeping the whole night (of course waking to drink but then falling right back asleep) and we moved up to size 2 diaper

  • We do bedshare and like DC I have everything right beside me to change E, but he is starting to sleep longer and longer at night. Its only a matter of time before he consistently STTN.

  • We roomshare and little boy often pees through his diaper multiple times a night, so he has to be fully changed clothes, diaper, swaddle, sheet at almost every feeding 23 times per night. I've tried everything I can think of, but it's just what it is. Eve
