Brief Answer:
Not concerning.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for asking on HealthcareMagic.

I have gone carefully through your query and understand your concerns. Let me assure you that this is normal and nothing to be concerned about. You need not change the diaper for each and every leak. Nevertheless, you need to ensure that the area does not remain damp for a long time.

Let me know if I could help further.
