    Question Should I wake to change his nappy??!

    Okay so this question has probably been asked heaps. Just went to check on bubs during his nap and I was graced with the lovely sweet, rotten yoghurt smell.

    should I wake him to change his nappy ? It's a day 5 poo so I imagine it is profuse. Ugh. Is breastfed babies' poo less likely to cause nappy rash??

    I didn't. If my babies were sleeping through it it clearly wasn't bothering them. And when they were young they never slept for super long periods.


    No issues with nappy rash here.

    I wouldn't wake to change at that age. He'll be awake soon enough.

    Always changed a dirty nappy....The thought of leaving DD in one was/is revolting to me. Would never intentionally do it.

    My DS was a rotten sleeper and never woke to change poo when he was young. I never hada problem then. It's his toddler poo's I need to be on top of now.. Or we end up with a very red bum.

    No never, we would coat bum in sudocream before any sleep just in case, but once past the early stages it was very rare for them to poo while in their cots... It's such a hard one isn't it!!

    Default Should I wake to change his nappy??!

    If he's sleeping I'd leave it.

    DS typically won't sleep through a poo, but he'll usually sleep with a nappy full of pee. Like that thing is ready to pop some mornings. At times he'll get up and 4am and won't resettle we'll get up and change him. It's usually a poo, but everyone now and then a lot of pee and he's over it.

    I say follow the babies lead. And slather that thing with cream.
