    Default Diaper Duty (XP)

    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.

    This made me smile. Ok so.. the last box of Size 2's I might go exchange for a size 3... And if we need more, I'll just go buy em..
