20The Number Of Wet Diapers
The number of wet diapers that baby has is one of the easiest ways to tell that she is hydrated. According to KellyMom, for the first week, the baby should have one wet diaper for every day of life (so three diapers on the third day). After that and once
mom's milk is in, she should have about 5 to 6 wet diapers in a 24 hour period.
It is likely that the baby may have more than the average 5 to 6. We should really only be concerned if she is having less than that in a 24 hour period. It is likely that the baby is not getting enough milk, our milk isn't coming in, or the baby is dehydrated.
