    Default When do you stop counting wet diapers?

    I know its really important the first few weeks, but do you still have to keep doing it? My son is 6 months old. Is there a goal for wet diapers at this age?

    Once my son started eating foods other than BM regularly I stopped counting. For us it happened after 1 year but some babies start eating fine well before that.

    I quit at around 3 months unless there's a problem like baby is sick, not feeding well, etc.

    I never kept an official count, but I kind of would estimate...enough to know if his production slowed down or sped up.

    I only count if I have a concern. For example, I recently had a day when I felt like my supply was low because she wasn't nursing much and getting mad when she did. And she had a fever and seemed sick one day. And another day she just wasn't very interested in nursing. Those days I kept a closer watch on the diapers to be sure she was still getting enough to eat. Otherwise, as long as everything seems normal, I don't worry about it.
    I love my kids. I care for them accordingly. What more can I say?
