Number Of Diapers For Newborn
"CHANGES" daily: On the first day of life, the baby may pee only 1-2 times and poop only 1-2 times. As the days go by, this increases on a daily basis. Day 2 pees 3-5 times, maybe a couple of poops. Also depends on whether you breast or formula feed. By the end of the first week, they are usually peeing or pooping every couple of hours, so you usually go through about 10-12 diapers daily by that time. ...Read more
Is it safe to give my 20 day old newborn pedia lax liquid glycerin suppositories if she isn't making regular diapers?
Not recommended: Not without a physical assessment by her pediatrician. At 20 days of age, we don't expect babies to make "regular" diapers. A baby may have a bowel movement with every feed or they may go up to 5 days without pooping. As long as she is feeding well, urinating normally and seems comfortable, I would leave well enough alone. Never give a baby under 2 months of age medicine without discussion w doc. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

If at all ill - ER!: If a newborn without a wet diaper for 24 hours is acting at all sick or lethargic, go immediately to see a physician. Newborns can get very sick very fast and one sign can be no urine output. It is unusual for a healthy newborn not to have a wet diaper for this long if breast or bottle feeding normally. They often have a bowel movement and urine after eating as a natural reflex. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Vasaline fine: I find unscented vasaline a great barrier skin treatment for kids prone to diaper rash.It may not help heal skin that is already broken down but does prevent it from worsening while the body heals. Cornstarch is often used by those who like the drying effect, but i find it more food for germs than a treatment.Once it is moistened by sweat it feeds pleanty of skin germs.I avoid it. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
