    Default Should I wake her for a change?

    My 4 week old little girl is sleeping peacefully (thank God! ) however I've just heard the tell tale noise of a poop...

    Should I change her - which would wake her up - or just leave her to sleep and change her when she wakes up?

    She has some nasty little bumps on her bottom, which I don't want to get any worse...

    I would change her, I'm always the first to say never wake a sleeping baby but I couldn't leave them in a dirty nappy

    I agree- change her. You never know- of she is in deep enough sleep she may not wake?

    I would change her...Im all for not waking a sleeping baby especially when they look so beautifully peaceful lol but I couldnt knowingly leave them in a pooey nappy.

    I know how you feel though, DS has done that a few times without us knowing (middle of the night) and woken up crying anyway.

    How long has she been asleep for and is she a good sleeper? I would probably wait a while and see if she wakes up if not I would wake after 20mins or so?

    No she's not a good sleeper - she was 6 weeks premie, so usually wakes for a feed at least every 2 hours...

    I'll change her. Thanks.

    I would have left her. I assume at that age it's just breast milk she's on which makes fairly innocuous poo.
