6 hours?!?!

I was watching my stepdaughter's baby while she went to the store yesterday. Amy woke up from her nap a little after 2pm, so I changed her diaper and of course I use cloth. (My stepdaughter is still using sposies even though I've given her a bunch of Sean's old AIOs to use.) I put her in a Very Baby AIO and I added a fleece topped microfiber doubler since I know that she doesn't change her as often as I change Sean. (she was "complaining" to Amy the other day that she had to change her 5 times that day!)

Anyway, we went on with our day blah, blah, blah...8pm rolls around and she says, "oh, no wonder you're cranky your diaper is leaking out the back. She goes to change her and I notice that she's wearing the same diaper that I had put on her 6 hours earlier!

I've tried to casually mention that one should change a babies diaper at least every 2 hours, if not more often. She told me that she used to change her after every pee but they ended up going through too many diapers that way, yet she won't use the cloth diapers that I've given her. And she wonders why the kid has a constant diaper rash that won't go away!

Thanks for letting me vent.

Re: 6 hours?!?!

That is awful! I can't even imagine what a diaper on that long would feel like. It must be like a disposiable diaper when it is taken to the pool!

I don't think I would be able to restrain myself if I saw that. I would want to say something right then and there on how wrong that is! (Silly me always likes to put my foot in my mouth. LOL)

I hope she stops that habit.

Re: 6 hours?!?!

how old is your stepdaughter? is she just too young to "get it"? id have a serious talk with her cause thats very unhealthy and disgusting to leave diapers on for that long. i didnt even leave sposies on my kids that long for overnight. i got good at changing them without waking them poor baby

I just read your other post and really have to wonder why she had a baby if she didn't want to take care of it?!?!?!
