It's been 10 years since I had to even think about diapers so I'm at a COMPLETE loss!
But, am also obsessed about having enough now that everyone and their mother is having annual baby sales and they are on sale or have a free gift card attached to them. lol..
So far I have..
96 - Newborn (up to 10 lbs)
188 - Size 1 (up to 12 lbs)
672 - Size 2 (up to 18 lbs)
I'm thinking about going out to Target today since it starts their Annual Baby Sale and picking up some Size 3 diapers.. They have them as low as 21.8 cents / diaper right now.
Do I have enough of some? I think I should go exchange one box of Size 2 for Size 3.. 672 sounds like a lot to me.. ??
Yes, I know some will cloth diaper and that's wonderful but this thread is about disposable ones, please, as I try to figure out just exactly what I need. Thank you
It really depends on how big your little guy is. My DD was in each size a lot longer than my DS. I hate to say it, but I wouldn't get too crazy stocking up on diapers aside from maybe size 3 (my 18 month old has been in 3's for probably 6 months, he still fit in 2's at the time but I had leftover 3's from DD and switched him). Not to mention, you never know what brand is going to work best for you. I use Pampers Swaddlers in NB size and some size 1, then switch to Luvs. I can get them on Amazon for 15-16 cents/diaper and have never had a problem with them leaking whatsoever. I love them! HTH! I'm going to have to make a Target run this week and see if I can find any killer deals!
I would get one pack of size 1 and 2, and then a couple of size 3. I wouldn't do much more then that. Sometimes they are in the smaller sizes longer, but sometimes they go through them REALLY fast. My 3rd dd was such a chunk, that she was in size 4 diapers at 4 months old... okay, they were a bit big, but my 1 year old was in that size and they were just easier to keep in the same size. That same baby was in size 4 diapers STILL the day she potty trained at 2.5. I've never had one outgrow a size 4.
I stocked up on NB with Elora and she ended up coming home in preemie, and then outgrew nb before I ran out! lol. she has been in size 4 since she was 7 months! I doubt she will ever outgrow them. If i would stock up it would be on 4's 3's and 2's. I would get like 3 1's and maybe 2 big boxes of NB. (the boxes i get are about 132 diapers in them or so). Also im glad im having a girl because I KNOW pampers dont work with my girls, and huggies work no matter what! i do go back and forth between luvs and huggies but had some leaking problems so am just sticking with huggies little moves because she is so stinking mobile its not funny.
