How many times do I have to change the diaper of the baby at night?

This question really creates an outlandish confusion, isn’t it?

But trust me, this question holds significance as it is going to affect your baby’s skin, especially your baby girl as it can result in a serious issue like a bladder infection.

So, to prevent all the complications, I’m going to answer your question, “how often should you change a baby’s diaper at night?”

Let’s see, what you gotta do!

How often should I change baby diaper at night?

So, the answer to your question is that the duration and number of diapers you need at night depend on the type of diaper you are using. For instance, cloth diaper is safe but not a good absorbent as a disposable diaper. However, a disposable diaper is not that safe.

To be precise, you should change the baby’s diaper in every 2-3 hours at the night. 

Hence, change the diaper of the baby when you find the diaper completely wet or if the baby has pooped. That simply means, a diaper that is a little bit wet, does not need to change.

To be noted, at the night, you can use a super-absorbent diaper rather than an ordinary one. This will enable you and your baby to sleep peacefully.
