When should I go up a diaper size?

If your baby has red marks along their thighs, that’s a telltale sign that the diapers are too snug. The elastic around the leg should have some stretch, but if the diaper is too small, it won’t fit properly and will create these red marks. This is definitely a time to move up a size in diapers.

Why is my baby peeing so much at night?

Your child’s kidneys may make too much urine overnight, leading to an overfull bladder. If your child doesn’t wake up in time, a wet bed is likely. Often this excess urine at night is due to low levels of a natural substance called antidiuretic hormone (ADH). ADH tells the kidneys to release less water at night.

Should you wake baby up to change diaper?

Luckily, the American Pregnancy Association noted that changing a baby’s wet diaper immediately is not a concern, and that a dirty diaper should be changed as soon as the baby wakes, as to avoid diaper rash.
