But my issue is if milk ever comes in or not. I didn't ever have a big supply and DD never wanted to latch on so it was completely out of my control.. We're planning for some help this time if it's an issue.
I don't remember how much we used with DS and he'll be 7 this year. I do remember he used newborn size diapers for almost the first month. He was 7lbs 0oz and 20in at birth. If I remember correctly he was in size 2's a lot longer than size 1's.
We haven't bought anything yet. We registered for 2boxes of size 1's and a box of size 2. We figured we would buy a small pack of newborn size just in case we needed them but wouldn't stock up on them. I'd rather stock up on the sizes we know we will need more/a lot of. We'll see what happens after our shower, since we might receive more than just what we registered for and I am a ok with that.
I wouldn't worry too much about exchanging sizes just yet. Most stores are great about letting you do a one for one size swap so you can just wait and see on that. Also, you never know if you'll need that many newborns, or if you'll even need any. We didn't, but our friends just had a baby and they'll be using them for a while. I'm trying to remember (it was almost 5 years ago), but I feel like we went through sizes 1, 2, & 3 lightening fast. It's so hard to predict. I'm not buying any because I know I'm getting a ton from work and we only plan on using disposables part time anyway.
I think you're set for now. You never know how fast your LO will grow. I do know you don't need many of the newborn ones, you've got plenty I think.
Also, if you can keep track of sales/coupons, a good stock up price is $4 for a jumbo pack (not box) of diapers. It's better to buy them by the pack because you can use more coupons that way.
Wow Adriana, that's awesome! I'm like Alissa, I'm shopping but not for practical things yet. I'm still buying cute stuff. But I think starting next paycheck, I will also start stocking up on diapers. I feel like those are rarely bought for registries unless its a diaper party.
I haven't started buying diapers yet, but we probably should. I think when DD was little we went through about 10 diapers a day, once she got bigger it went down to 4-6 a day. I have no idea how many of each size we went through total though, but it was a lot!
