Know when to change diaper

For a new born infant, the frequency of peeing and pooping may be very high, so keep a close watch and change as soon as your baby has pooped. Otherwise, it can stay on for a while but don't wait until it is fully soiled or gets heavy. It may hurt the newborn's delicate skin.

An infant might have to be changed every two hours or so while toddlers develop better bladder control and go up to three or four hours without needing a diaper change. If your child has sensitive skin or is prone to urinary infections, then frequent changes may be required.

Also, if you are at home, try keeping your baby off diaper for a few hours atleast, clean the genital area of the baby and leave him in loose pants. To begin with, you may have to rush to clean more often, gradually you will get a sense of when he needs to be taken to the restroom. It is also the first step towards toilet training.

A majority of children are fully potty trained by the time they are three years of age. There can always be exceptions though and quite a few children are off diapers earlier or later than this age.
