Doctor insights on:
It's OK if it works!: I'm assuming you're asking about a cloth diaper? If so, fold the diaper so you place extra padding over the penis to catch the urine. Fasten it at the baby's hips with tape - or with diaper pins if you're brave. Disposables are probably easier to use, especially if you are new at this! Remember, it only matters that it works - not how it looks! Good luck. ...Read more
Diaper change: Lay diaper open on surface. Roll child to one side and tuck the diaper in as far as you can on that side. Then roll child to other side and pull remainder of diaper through.

How many hours is the maximum to leave my baby during night in the diaper? I don't change coz im afraid he might wake up
Until they wake: Today's super absorbent diapers are designed to pull moisture away from the skin into material in the fabric. It's the moisture that over hydrates the skin & sets them up for diaper rashes. Most kids can sleep 6-9 hours in a diaper & not have problems. Those using cloth diapers & heavy diaper covers will trap moisture & have more problems with rashes if left overnight. ...Read more

Not if eating well: Babies start to urinate less often as they get older; initially, they wet with every feeding, but later, they sleep more deeply and may wet less often.
