Poops During Naps

Ok, I feel like BAD mom. For 3 days in a row, my LO is choosing to poop in the middle of her AM nap. When I check on her I notice this (lol - not hard to miss!). However, she is sleeping so deeply I don 't want to wake her to change her (when this happens at night I wake and change her asap). So she ends up sitting in it about 30 mins or so... Should I wake her to change her? That's what I want to do. There's no diaper rash or anything and she looks pretty happy in there. I feel really bad. What would you guys do?

I wouldn't just because naps are rare and far between around my house lately. My ds is 9 months old and for a few months he had a habit of pooping in the early morning (5am) every morning...I would only find out about it when I went to get him at 6:30-7am. He has never had a diaper rash in his little life so far. I think if you let your lo sit in his own poop for hrs on end when hes awake and its getting all squished into every crevice then there might be rash problems and such...but letting her sleep for that extra 30 mins is not going to hurt anything IMO. Think how hard it will be to get to na again after you've changed her.

Yep, that's why I hold back. I think she went about 25 more mins this morning and the minuete I heard noises I bolted back and took care of it. Usually I try to let her fall back asleep. I also use aquaphor so I guess there is that barrier. I have paranoid visions of going to the ped one of these days and hearing "this is the worst case of diaper rash I have ever ever seen!"

My poor ds gets diaper rash all the time, and I change him immediately when he poops. I don't really have advice for you, just I'm jealous that yours hasn't had diaper rash! I've tried everything, and he still gets diaper rash...
