Having a bit of a dilemma! My 12 week old little girl has had a bit of a poorly belly the past couple of days, docs said it's probably just a bug, but her nappies have been more poopy than usual.

I put her to sleep about an hour ago, after taking a while to get her down, and after checking on her I can smell that she's soiled her nappy. She's sound asleep, and seems quite content, and I don't want to wake her, but at the same time I don't want to leave her laying in her poop!

What would you guys do?!

Yeah you have to change. It's a pain but she will get sore lying in poo.

Never leave them lying in poo!

Definitely change, or risk evil nappy rash. If you're lucky, she'll sleep through it. smile

Yep sorry. I'm pretty lax as a parent but I'd always change poo. Do it quickly, she won't even notice!

keep the lights low and change the nappy gently and quickly - you can't leave her in poo. If she wakes up, c'est la vie!

Yes, you have to change her.

Keep the lights dim, make sure you have a nappy ready. Dummy ready to pop in if she has one. Warm the wipes in your hand or on the radiator first so they aren't cold on her bottom. If she's really sleepy and you're very gentle she might even go back to sleep straight away.

I stuff the wipes in my bra for. Red mins to warm up then they don't notice being changed so much.

Warm the wipes first. Be gentle but quick and hopefully she'll sleep through it.

Yes you must change her. She'll end up with a very sore bum if left. It's likely to get uncomfortable and she'll wake anyway. Keep room as dim as possible and have everything ready to go.

Another one here who used to stuff the wipes down my bra to warm them up while I got the rest of the nappy changing stuff out blush even if I did wake DD she wouldn't be fully alert IYSWIM and would go back to sleep pretty quickly

Ooh I like the stuffing wipes in bra action to warm them up !

Of course you have to change! My mum used to insist on warming wipes on the radiator when helping with DTs. Never went for it myself!

Yes, you have to change her.
