    No doubt resolved by now but here's my 2c - tiny baby that my resettle quickly, yep.

    Overnight, yep I would, especially if they were going to sleep through.

    Nap or if they still wake regularly overnight, I'd leave

    Okay so I was umming and ahhing about waking him and he woke up 10 mins later and didnt go back to sleep after changing him. Thankfully the poo was still contained in the nappy though! Thanks for the replies. Now I'll know for next time lol.

    One night my boy did a massive poo about 5 mins into a sleep I had been coaxing him into for almost an hour. I was exhausted, but I knew it was too big to leave, so I changed him, moving as gentle as I could and did it without waking him! I fist pumped the air I was so excited about my ninja changing skills, the next time was not so awesome.... I still change him and do my best not to wake him, but I always do, never to repeat that one awesome nappy change. Sigh.

    I don't think my boys ever slept through poos. I think I would change it, but then if it had taken me 3 hours to get them to sleep I would very much be tempted to leave it. It's gross but it's not going to hurt them.

    Bubs is in a hip brace so gentle changing is impossible, unfortunately. I also like to wash their bottoms in warm water after a poo. I always feel there is otherwise a lingering odour!

    Oh if I'd known that then no way. My 4th wore a hip brace for 12 months and sleep was a nightmare. No way I'd wake her to do anything except save her from death once she was asleep!

    I've been really blessed in that sleep isn't so bad. We have the occasional hourly wake from 10pm onward, but given he's so distracted during the day, I figure he's waking to make up for those lost feeds. I take advantage of the cat napping in that I can get more done outside the house and he'll happily sleep for hours in his woven wrap. I love having a 4th, everything just seems like so much less of an issue. I remember feeling so down when my first would have a one sleep cycle nap. Now, I feel so much more relaxed about it. It could just be I don't have the energy to worry, though. Lol
