Smile Re: Heavy wetters: on an avg how often are you changing them?

It averages about every two hours. But it also depends on the diaper. So it can be after an hour or 15 minutes after I changed him. Today he was in his Blueberry minky with two Thristie hemp doublers for about three hours without a leak. But seriously needed be changed when I did.

I don't consider my son a heavy wetter, but I change him (or at least check him) every hour or two during the day. Now that he is getting a little older (six months), sometimes his diaper is dry when I check it because he is holding it for a little longer. When he was younger it seemed like he constantly had a wet diaper. If we are out, sometimes he goes more like three hours with a prefold and doubler, but that's the very longest I let him go during the day. At night he is in a VBSN with a wool soaker for about 12 hours.

DS is a super-duper heavy wetter. We found a combination that works for him, though, and we change probably every 3 to four hours on average (HH stuffed with Mother Ever hemp/micro insert, thirsties micro insert) He will be 3 in September. To give you an idea, he would wet through a thick hemp fitted in one pee.

Re: Heavy wetters: on an avg how often are you changing them?

Maybe my DD isn't as heavy a wetter as your children? I change about every 2.5 hours except first thing in the morning, where we usually go through 2-3 diapers in an hour or hour and a half after I take off the nighttime diaper. She can go about 3 hours w/o leaking usually. We do pockets with micro and a hemp babies doubler. If we're going out for a long time I put two hemp babies doublers in. Lately she's holding and flooding, so we're changing a little less frequently. Yesterday she went 4+ hours w/o peeing!!!
