Avoid Diaper Changes in the Middle of the Night
It’s natural to want to change your little one’s diaper after they have eaten. After all, what goes in must come out, right? While this may be fine during the day sometimes, it is really not a good idea at night when you and your baby wake up for feedings.
Diaper changes require too much movement. You need to take off clothes and diaper, which will make your baby cold – at least colder than they were when they were asleep. This plus the movement required to take the old diaper off and put a new one on is enough to have your baby fully awake and ready to go in the middle of the night.
Save diaper changes for right after your baby wakes up. They are not very likely to poop in their sleep – it requires too much concentration and their signature poop face – so a bit of pee between sleeping and waking is fine.
