Ammount of wet diapers?

I never knew the correct ammount, but there were plenty so I didn't bother to question it. Recently DD has seemed to be peeing less. She's eating the same, so I'm not sure what it is. We do have super absorbant diapers so sometimes it feels like there's a little pee in there, but it's still flat and relatively empty...

I don't know if what I'm saying even makes sense here, but how do I know exactly how many times she's peed in a day if maybe one diaper could hold 2 or even 3 pees without me knowing?

Re: Ammount of wet diapers?

  • Why are you still keeping track?  I change DD everytime I feed her (every 2.5-3 hours during the day unless she has a dirty diaper) and she's wet.  Sometimes more than others.  I wouldn't be concerned with the amount of wet diapers unless she didn't have any in a 24 hour period.

  • My mom weighed diapers back in the day. She found that during growth spurts the diapers were lighter because baby is using more and wasting less.

    I've never kept track, I had just noticed that it seemed to be a sudden drop. Like 4 diaper changes yesterday. Just seemed a little weird and I wasn't sure what having less diapers would mean.

    Interesting! She is around 3 months and should be going through a growth spurt. Didn't even think of that.
