1. Should I be bullied into changing a diaper even when it's dry, to try and "prevent leakage"?

    Background: Student came in for feed, gave student said feed; diaper was DRY.

    6 minutes later aide walks in "So I think you are supposed to change student *every* time (student) comes in to be fed, because now (student) is wet and was JUST in here"

    *I explain how that isn't really necessary, but student can come back in to be changed now

    Aide "Well last week (student) leaked through pants so I think we should be changing every time, we have enough diapers to do it"

    How is one dry diaper better than the other?

    Also, this is summer school, no aides help me change the student, and the student arrives to school at 8:30 and they are requesting this diaper change for 9

    That makes no sense. What? How is changing a dry diaper going to prevent leaking?

    Why can't the aide change the diaper?
