Nappies I mean.
Not poo as those would be changed immediately but what about wet nappies?
How often do you change baby's newborn nappy?

We changed A every time we fed him (and dirty nappies when they happened) so roughly every 2/3 hours at the start.

Well Henry was in hospital so I follows the nurses lead- before every feed (3hourly) ten bed often fill. it whilst feeding so after too. Only changed before cos he wouldn't eat with a full nappy!

Similar here, I tend to change before a feed unless she's woken up ravenous in which case I'd wait till after. Wondered if others changed more or less.

We now change less at 8 weeks - probably every second feed. WE're using cloth now too so they last longer we find.

When it feels squishy or she loos. Way less than we changed I and not in a pattern.

What VE said, when it felt squishy or when they'd poo'd. E got changed more often that S. i used to wait until after a feed too, unless they had poo'd because you could be sure that as soon as they'd had their milk there would be a poo. So the clean nappy would only remain clean for the duration of the feed.
