    Default Would you wake her?

    If she wouldn't wake up, then yes. but for a bf baby, probably not.

    I was in hospital just before Christmas with my newborn and the second night, she was a bit unsettled. After a few hours, finally got her to sleep and she did a poo. The midwife was there. As I was about to change her, she said let her sleep. Another midwife that came to my house checked my daughter and noticed her bum was a bit red. I said what the midwife told me. She said bf poo wouldn't cause a reaction on her bum, that the wipes would be making her go a little bit red.

    if i can smell a poo while dd is asleep i change her straight away. i have made the mistake of leaving it and she woke in the morning with a nappy rash so bad she couldnt walk. She was in agony. So i never let her sleep in a pooey nappy - how uncomfortable and gross. i always put heaps of napy rash cream on her at night before bed.

    How old? I think it would be very different to a 3 month old bf baby

    It depends how long she would be asleep for. I'd leave her if it was going to be less than 3 hours but change her if it'd be more.

    It depends how hard she is to settle back to sleep. If you do it, use a warm facewasher to clean her to avoid waking her more with a cold baby wipe lol! I have changed DD's nappy on the bed where she slept without waking her a few times. I like the idea of lots of nappy cream if its a regular occurrence and she is hard to settle back to sleep.

    I wouldn't change her. If she got bad nappy rash from it the first time I left it I would change her in future. But I'm guessing at 3mo she won't sleep for that long anyway and as others have said its just breast milk.

    Yes I had to change my DD who is 6 weeks at 3:30 this morning. She pooed after I fed her and she had gone back to sleep. Luckily she continued to sleep

    Any moisture in a nappy can cause nappy rash, bf or not.
