What Color Baby Dirty Diaper
I assume: you mean by "dirty diaper" diapers containing stool. 7 or 8 stools per day may not be unusual, but if it is a big change from previously, you should take your baby to her pediatrician. If she is making fewer urine soaked diapers, it could mean she's dehydrated and needs prompt evaluation. ...Read more

Depends on rash: Many diaper rash ointments contain zinc oxide, which is an effective treatment for many irritative rashes that occur. It is harmless unless you think there is an infection along with the rash. Keep in mind if it's not improving in a week to seek further evaluation/treatment. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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.

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

Those using cloth diapers & heavy diaper covers will trap moisture & have more problems with rashes if left overnight. ...Read more
My baby is 1 month & I have change his diaper 5 hours ago but it feels like he has not wet his diaper & its night time.Should i b worried.
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. If he is eating well and seems comfortable, you can wait and see what happens. If he does not void at least 2-3 times in 24 hours, call your doctor. ...Read more
With love!: Changing diapers is simple, but remember to be careful. Turning your back on an infant of any age who is on a high counter or changing table is dangerous. Lay them down, open the diaper, hold their feet/legs up with one hand while cleaning their bottoms with your other hand (and a wipe or cloth!) then, place a new diaper under them, add some barrier cream, if desired, and seal them up! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
