Re: Nappy count
You can stop coutning after 6 weeks or so, or even earlier if breastfeeding is going really well. With my first I did diaper counts for about 2 months because we were having a very hard time nursing. With my second, I stopped counting after about 5 days because the baby had massive yellow poops at every single diaper change and was clearly getting enough to eat.
Poopy diapers can be counted as 2 because the poop usually masks some pee. If you're in doubt- and it's easy to miss a little newborn pee in a suber-absorbent disposable diaper- tuck a square of tissue paper in front of the baby's genital area. When the baby pees, the paper will be visibly wet.
Scanty pees in a very young baby- i.e. being a light wetter- I think it would at least be worth a very close look at whether or not that baby is getting enough to eat.
Coolest thing my big girl said recently: "How can you tell the world is moving when you are standing on it?"
Coolest thing my little girl sang recently: "I love dat one-two pupples!"
