l. Number of Wet Diapers


Baby's wet themselves between six to ten times a day (see bowel movement section). Changing your baby's diaper as soon as it is wet will help prevent diaper rash.

If your baby has fewer than six heavy wet diapers a day or if the urine is dark yellow and has a strong smell, it may mean that your baby needs more fluid. You should contact your health care provider if you baby does not have 6 heavy wet diapers a day.
