Change the freaking diaper! Dry Max, to me, is a sad commentary on our society's priorities.
No, I told dh that was a dumb move on their part. BUT, he quickly reminded me that people who buy/use sposies want the diapers to hold a lot so they don't have to change frequently. I change Anna and Will every time they pee never going more than 2 hours and they could easily wear a Pampers for 8 or 10 hours. Well, they do at night. It is crazy, but when we switched to cloth all of my friends were flabbergasted of how frequently I had to change them. They asked me why I wanted to change diapers that often.

She wouldn't even bring diapers with him to church nursery so we wouldn't change him and "waste" a diaper. I started sending him back to mom when he was pee soaked and she started bringing at least one extra diaper. Poor kid, he was overall neglected.
When I worked in a daycare we had a mom that would only let us change the kids diaper 4 times a day. She would only bring in 4 diapers a day and he was there from 7am until 5pm.
