PS. Oh, he's breastfed, and I use Huggies disposables, and quite a lot of Castor & Zinc cream to protect his skin.

DD wears cloth nappies with a microfleece liner to draw away the moisture. If she wakes at night (which isn't very often these days), nappy change is always first up. It's usually wet, but not dirty, but there is no way we wouldn't change her anyway. I wouldn't want to be made to go back to sleep in a wet nappy, so why should she? We are pretty good at knowing when she's likely to need to go (wee or poo) during the day, and we're not going to wake her at night just to change her...but if she wakes, we would never not change her. It's not just about preventing nappy rash, but...even with the "wonders" of modern disposable nappy technology, or microfleece with a cloth nappy, I don't see why a baby should knowingly be left to sit in their own waste. We'd be appalled if our grandparent, say, was in a home and unable to care for themselves, but was knowingly left for hours without being changed. Why should we treat our children any differently?
