For the past week or so, I have noticed that Zakiah's diapers have been a little leaky in the morning when she gets up. She is currently using Pampers Swaddlers Size 1-2. Is this the beginning of bed wetting?
It is understandable that her diapers are starting to leak a little because I usually don't change her diaper at night once she is in bed. I usually give her a bath, rub on some desitin cream to protect her buns overnight, and put her in her fresh diaper for the night. She is ideally in bed around 8ish and doesn't get up for good til 8ish in the morning. According to the Baby Whisperer, I have Zakiah on a 12 hour day and 12 hour night cycle. So yes, she is in the same diaper for 12 hours. On top of that, she is still being swaddled so I don't like having to unswaddle her and change her because of the fear that she will be wide awake in the middle of the night and I have to try to put her back to sleep. Currently, she wakes anywhere between 1-5 in the morning to eat and sometimes it can be once a night or twice a night. Most times, I just feed her and she falls asleep at the breast. So I just go ahead and put her back in her bed and go about my business.
I guess it will be easier to change her when she is weaned from the swaddle hopefully by the end of next month. Her grandparents are supposed to bring her crib either this weekend or next. I think I am going to wait til she is in her crib to start weaning because the bassinet is getting a little crampy to wean her now. I tried a few times and all she would do most times was get upset because she can't stretch out her arms without touching the sides of the bassinet. But she has fallen asleep twice on her back UNSWADDLED in the bassinet ON HER OWN so I know she is capable of doing so when she gets her crib. For now, we are just going to have to make due.
Anyway, just thought I would mention the era of the leaky diapers has begun...yippee!
