after a while you'll start to be able to tell when the diaper is wet. But it's a much more subtle change and hard to describe. Until you figure that out, go by a time schedule (2-3 hours) or you can feel the diaper to see if it's damp.

I check and change every 2 to 3 hours. It's hard to tell when they're wet and I have a hard time smelling when she's pooed too. With the disposables, I could always smell it! Not anymore.

I change about every 3-4 hours I'd say. Works well for us, and she's a heavy wetter at times.
