    Yeah, 2-3 hours or so. But he goes 10 hours at night. So we use 7 a day, I'd guess.

    about every 2 hours here, in FuzziBunz. But my guy pees like a firehose, literally ... just saves up and lets loose, so pretty much I change as soon as he pees.

    ETA that he goes overnight in one 'sposie ... but I don't put it on 'till I go to bed (ie, I don't put it on him when *he* goes down for the night)

    every 1-3 hours, depends how much he is peeing. we often go coverless in the house so I know as soon as he pees and he gets changed right away.

    we use cloth and are home a LOT, I let her go coverless at home and change her when she feels wet.

    every 3 hours or so depends on naps/errands, etc.

    poop is immediately of course as it clears the room

    I have 2 in diapers, so the times vary. Seth (almost 17 months) is usually changed every 1-2 hours, but Gage (3) usually goes 3-4 without needing to be changed. Oh, and we use cloth.

    Depends on what kind of diaper I'm using, if it's a fitted or AIO every 2 hours or so (maybe less if I notice baby is wet) If it's a prefold and doubler with soaker, every 3- 4 hours (esp if I'm running errands or something) I don't change diapers in the middle of the night unless the baby has a BM.

    lol, I have no idea why I'm posting on diaper threads today...as my child has been potty trained for over a year and a half ;)

    anyway, I'd just change every time she peed. We were always coverless at home, so it was easy to tell. If we were out and about I'd check her constantly (I'm obsessive about stuff like that LOL). I'd guess it was every hour or two, but really it varied a lot!

    My almost 3 yo son is in pull-ups right now (hoping he'll be potty learned at anytime). He's dry usually all day, but wakes with a wet one at night. So maybe 1-3 per day.

    I have no idea. ??? Whenever he needs it, but I don't keep track. Too much for my simple mind ;) ACtually, I did know all of those details with Erik. But something had to go. So I freed up some mental powers and stopped thinking about it. Now I can obsess about what food we're eating, and possible food reactions (since Anders has multiple food allergies). LOL! If I were to guess, I'd say average eveyr 3 hours?

    I hope that means he's using the potty the other times, b/c only peeing 1-3 times a day probably means that he's not getting enough water.
