I never wake my 7 week old to change her and never have. She has never had nappy rash. If she did have a rash though I probably would wake her. I have just always figured that she would wake if she were uncomfortable.

I would change her if its a big one or if she has a rash. When I was in hospital the midwives said to change them when they wake up. But I can't imagine a dirty nappy would be comfortable to sleep in
When my DD was a few weeks old I asked exactly the same question, she was pooing several times during her sleep and I didn't want to wake her. But I did in the end. Every single time she pooed I changed her, sometimes 5 times a night! Up to 3 times in an hour! But it all got better! Phew~~

I would have left it till she woke on her own, unless she had nappy rash, then I would have woken her.

With a new born i probably would have let her sleep if she is not a good sleeper, especially if she had been asleep for a while.
My 5 month old pooed at 4 this morning and she never poos during the night (so I'm blaming teething). I cringed when I heard her lol. It was dark and cold but I got her up and changed her because I knew she would have been in it for at least another 3 hours, she is teething so wasn't sleeping well and it would have eventually leaked.
