How many wet diapers a day??? Jeni ♥ Teagan 1 child; Puyallup, Washington 1659 posts

How many wet diapers does your toddler have a day and how old are they? trying to do a comparison...I told my daughter's pedi how many she had a day because it seemed like a lot and he was like :shock: He said some kids do pee a lot more than others but that Teagan has a bit more than he is used to hearing about so he wants to run a urine test on her :( He says he's not "overly concerned' but just wants to be sure....



She has 14 wet diapers a day. everything I read about on the internet about "frequent urination" says diabetes...And she is really little too (20lbs 5oz at 18m) which I guess can be another sign of type 1 diabetes in kids...I'm so worried now.:( I know I need to stop reading the internet.:oops:

That seems like a lot, but I'm not sure how many my toddler goes through a day....seems like all I do is change diapers all day between my girls. Do you give her lots of fluids? I know my LO will pee like crazy the more I give her to drink

I don't have a toddler, but as a child and as an adult I pee ALOT. Even before I was pregnant, and I have always been up 3-4 times a night to go. They ran every test they could think of. I was/am fine. I just have a little bladder. So maybe that is what is goign on with your daughter. If I drink anything, 20-30 min I gotta go. Milk, Juice and soda make it ten times worse.

I don't think she drinks much more than the average toddler...she has a sippy of milk in the morning and night, and about 2 sippy's of water a day. Her diapers are really full too...not just a little wet.

this definitely makes me feel better. I really hope she is simply a frequent pee'er...



I'm sure it will make potty training her extra fun:wink:

It really depends on what you consider to be a "wet" diaper. Some people I know change the diaper about every 1.5 to 2 hours... some change it as soon as its wet.... some change it when the diaper is about to explode. Also take into consideration the amount of fluid your daughter is drinking. I think I change about 6-8 diapers a day. I just check it every once and a while.

for that amount of intake of fluids 14 FULL diapers is WAY too much.

Christopher is going to be 15 months here soon. In a disposable, we change him 4-5 times a day (every 2-3 hours or so).
