Should I use Vaseline with every diaper change?

Should I change my baby before or after feeding?

Change your baby before you change sides (or halfway through the bottle). This usually wakes babies up enough to get them to take a full feeding. If that wakes your baby too much, change their diaper first, and then feed them. If you change the diaper after you feed your baby, you risk completely waking them again.

Do you wake a sleeping baby to change a poopy diaper?

If baby is sleeping, there’s no need to wake him or her for a diaper change. Unless your newborn is very wet and uncomfortable or has a poopy diaper, you don’t need to put a new one on during nighttime feedings, either, especially if it will interfere with going back to sleep.
