STTN and diaper changes

My DD is a great sleeper, averaging about 10 hours all the way through 45nights a week. Is it bad that I am letting her sit for that long in a seriously pee filled diaper?? She doesn't have a rash and is bathed daily, but am I taking advantage of her great sleep habits and making a mistake by not changing her?

  • No, don't change her.  They're fine in a wet diaper all night.  You have many years of STTN before LO is trained, you do not have to wake them!

  • Yeah, I only change his diaper in the middle of the night if he is wide awake and I know it won't make a difference. If he's sleeping or even half-wakes up to eat, I let it be.

  • We sleep 10:30 to 6:30 lately. I just make sure she has a really good coating of diaper cream on at the last changing at night.

    I agree with this exactly!  My LO does not STTN and I still do not change him because instead of staying drowsy it really wakes him up.  We have had no issues doing this (I did the same with DS1 as well).

    DS typically goes from 7:30pm to 6am without a diaper change. I do put a bunch of butt cream on him at his bedtime diaper change.

  • They usually pee a less if they STTN because they aren't waking to be fed multiple times so your diaper should be able to manage all night. DD still wakes up a couple times and last night I changed her at 4 AM [first change since 7 PM] and it was a huge mistake. Her diaper wasn't even all that wet & she woke up wide eyed and wouldn't go back to sleep for like 1.5 hours.

    Enjoy your sleep. You don't want to wake up in the middle of the night, every night for the next 2 years do you?

    Do not change them! I posted this EXACT question with the same title about a month ago and the consensus was to not change them and enjoy my sleep. I believe someone also posted that it is just pee so not that a big of a deal. It has never soaked through her pjs. Now poop is a whole different story.

    Enjoy it. R has STTN 5 nights in a row now and never once did I stop to think about changing her.
  • DD sleeps 12 hours most nights and stays in her diaper. I wouldn't dare wake her up just for a diaper change. I try to put a layer of desitin on for her last diaper of the night, and she hasn't had a rash yet. I wouldnt worry about it.

    I don't change her and she hasn't leaked. She doesn't poop at night.

  • I never wake for a diaper change. And even towards the end of the nighttime feedings I stopped changing because DS would be nice and drowsy. Honestly, I don't even change for poop at night! Unless there is a major leakage issue going on, I leave DS in his diaper until morning. Now he STTN so it's definitely not happening!

  • I only change if I am going to feed. I only feed if I know that patting her stomach or rocking her to sleep wont work.

  • DD STTN for 12-13 hours and we never wake her up to change her diaper, it's fine

  • I don't do a diaper change either, I enjoy the sleep. But I put lots of Desitin on her during her last diaper change before bed.
