Toddlers usually need around 4 to 5 diaper changes per day depending on their age and how much they pee or poop.

An 18 month old to 2 year old toddler may go through 5 to 6 diapers per day and need a diaper change every 3 hours or so.

Make sure to check the diaper every hour at least when possible to make sure they are not in a poop diaper or pee diaper that is too wet.

I checked my kids diapers every 1 hour just to be sure and sometimes it needed changed and other times it didn't.

A 3 year old may only need a diaper change every 3 hours and may only need 3 to 4 diapers per day.

Babies of 1 year old and under may need around 8 to 10 diapers per day.

So that would mean that you would need to change your 1 year old and under baby 8 to 10 times per day and need 8 to 10 diapers per day.

When they are a newborn you can expect to change between 10 to even 12 diapers sometimes per day and they may need a diaper change during the night as well.

Poop diapers should be changed right away but pee diapers can be changed every 1 hour to 2 hours unless it's bothering the baby.

A baby that is 13 months old or older can usually get by with a diaper change every 2 hours to 3 hours.

Babies that are 13 months old and above may only need 6 to 8 diapers per day and as the baby gets older they go through less diapers per day.

A 2 or 3 year old can usually get by with a diaper change every 3 hours and may only need 3 to 4 diapers per day depending on how much they wet.

Diapers should be changed every 2 to 3 hours depending on the age of the baby or toddler and how often they poop or wet the diaper.

Cloth diapers usually need changed sooner than disposables because the cloth diapers don't hold the pee away from the child's skin.

The disposables hold the pee away from the skin so the child doesn't feel wet unless they saturate and soak the diaper and it starts leaking.

A baby of 1 year or under may need their diaper changed every 1 to 2 hours and of course the diaper should be changed right away when they poop.

A baby or toddler of 13 months to 2 or 3 years old may only need a diaper change every 2 or 3 hours.

As a kid gets older they usually pee less often and more at once so a 3 year old or 2 year old child may only need to have his or her diaper changed every 3 hours.

You don't have to change the diaper every time they pee but change it every 3 hours at most.

Pampers and Huggies are very absorbent diapers so they can hold a lot of urine.

It depends on the toddler and how much they have to drink or eat.

But plan on between 5 to 8 diaper changes for most toddlers.

But if the toddler gets to 3 years old or older they may only need 2 or 3 diapers per day.

As long as you're changing them every 3 hours then you're doing okay.
