: Hi everyone. I have an 18-month-old son and he never makes a sound when his diaper needs to be changed. If I don't check him or smell anything, I really think he would stay in a dirty diaper all day and never make a fuss. I also babysit my neighbor's 16-month-old son once or twice a week. He is the exact opposite. Once he goes, he will start fussing and whimpering. He doesn't have to go that much for him to start. My question is how often should I be changing my son's diaper? Obviously I am going to change the neighbor's boy because he isn't comfortable, but my son never has a problem with it. Do I need to continuously check my son's diaper or is it ok to let it go for a while, as long as he's not complaining? Thanks.

My 13 month old son sounds like yours. He would sit in a poop filled diaper all day if I left him. He throws an absolute fit when we change him. I change him about every 4 hours during the day. I think if I let him go longer he could get diaper rash. Once I catch a whiff he has pooped, I change him right away. Luckily he usually goes like clockwork every morning. You could try chaging him standing up. It's easier than wrestling with him sometimes.
