    Default Would you wake her?

    DD is 3 months old and she poops in her sleep in the mid of the night without waking up. I don't know if I should change her nappy meaning waking her up or leave it until she wake up next?
    She does a lot of pooy farts, I wonder if its anything I ate? I BF.

    Thanks

    If I were in your situation I would, with my son he'd get a sore bottom if I left him sitting in it.

    Sorry I can't help with the bf/fart part though

    Yes i would most definately change nappy. I wouldnt want to sit in a dirty nappy so i am pretty positive babies wouldnt either. If you dont have to wake her while changing her, dont wake her if she is a baby who can sleep while being moved.

    i would be inclined to lather a very thick layer of nappy cream on her and change her when she wakes for her next feed.

    id do the same. my dd is and has always been a horrible sleeper so if i woke her id be up for the rest of the night. Do What you need to do, if you feel its a bad move changing her, then dont all the best. Dont feel bad for leaving it for a little bit, just change it when she wakes to feed.

    It would depend on how long it would be until the next feed.

    Oh I faced this same dilemma! If its a decent dirty nappy I would change her - otherwise I would feel too guilty knowing she was lying in a dirty nappy. If it only sounded like a tiny bit I would leave her.

    My DS is almost 11 weeks and has just in the last few days regulated everything so that he is pooing less, and mostly during the day!!

    This is what I do. Bf poos are just digested milk, I don't think they cause much of a rash. If my 3 week old DD does a poo as she falls asleep I just wait till the next feed - its only 2 hours.

    If she were FF or on solids I would change right away.

    I'd change her, personally. I wouldn't sleep in poo, so I won't let my baby iykwim.
