Use Diaper at night
The one thing that a new mom cannot avoid is the sleepless nights.The infant needs to be feeded at every two hours interval and on top of it the baby continues to pee. Certainly,getting yourself wet or changing nappies in the middle of the night will be the last thing on your mind.As studies show,its not preferable to keep babies in diapers throughout.The key apparently is the temperature. It significantly increases the scrotal temperature effecting fertility of boys.As grannies say,do not keep babies in diapers and I guess that's ok. You should use diapers only when they cannot be avoided and using them in night is also one of those times because a new mom also has the right to sleep peacefully and the baby gets up only when he is hungry.As the baby grows,he will get up less frequently in the middle of the night and his cycle will adjust to yours,this is when you can use diapers at night occasionally. Why I am saying occasionally because you need to teach your child that even if its night,bed is not the place where you should pee. I came across a mother who kept her baby in diapers at night for so long that baby,although now she is 4 years of age, pees in her bed in the night because she never got that habit.So restricted use of diapers can leave you much more happier and fresh when you get up in the morning.
