Hey everyone, my husband and I are expecting our first child in a few weeks and we're trying to make sure we have all of the necessary information before our little one arrives. I keep hearing that babies need their diapers changed frequently, but I'm not quite sure what that means. How often should we be changing our baby's diaper? Is it every time they pee, poop, or something else entirely? Any advice from experienced parents would be greatly appreciated!
Hi there! I'm a new parent myself, but I'm happy to share my experience so far. I find that changing my baby's diaper every two hours during the day helps to keep them clean and comfortable. I also make sure to change their dirty diaper as soon as possible because leaving them in a soiled diaper can lead to diaper rash, which can be quite uncomfortable for the baby. At night, I tend to stretch it to about four hours if they're sleeping. But it's still important to check their diaper periodically throughout the night, especially if they're having trouble sleeping or seem fussy. It's all about finding a routine that works for you and your baby. Congrats on your little one and wishing you all the best!
