When do you change your nappy?
Because the diaper needs to be changed every time the baby gets dirty, the number of changes to be made during the day (and sometimes during the night!) varies depending on the individual case. Normally, in fact, a baby discharges more or less ad every feed, therefore about every 2/3 hours, however the urge to urinate (pee in short) is not as predictable.
To this is added the fact that with the passing of the months the habits of the child also change, consequently also the moments of poop and pee undergo strong variations.Read also: How to take off the diaper at night
How many diapers do you need per day?
In light of what has been said in the introduction, it can be said that to keep your child fresh and clean they are needed about 10-12 diapers a day for the first two months, after which the number of necessary changes will always decrease. However, the total number of daily diapers also varies according to the type of product purchased: if you choose brands that guarantee greater absorption capacity, then it is likely that the baby will feel dry for a longer time and therefore parents will be called to change less frequently.
The discourse on the number of changes naturally also applies to washable nappies, which, even if they are not thrown away but reused, must still be alternated regularly.Read also: Diaper dermatitis (or erythema): what it is and what it depends on
