|That's probably a factor, the newness. Your child's age might be another. And some kids process intake/outflow differently too. I have 4 daycare kids all boys, all between 1-2. They eat & drink vertually the same things here during the day. One boy needs changed every hour because he is so wet, and poops 3 times a day! But one of the other boys can be dry for hours at a time and poops once every 3 days.
Oddly enough, due to an ulcerated penis, my 14 month old has went coverless this whole last week. Here and out. I do have 1 pair of woolies fortunately for outings. I've been checking him every 10 minutes because the dr said he absolutely needs to stay dry to heal. He's gone through all 25 dipes that I own each and every day. His pants have stayed dry, but it's been a challenge. So going coverless with a heavy wetter(or a frequent wetter, there is a difference!) can be a challenge.
