Diaper Question for BTDT Moms

I have 80 size 1 diapers and a box of 200 size 1 diapers that i got from my registry. I also have about 100 size 2 diapers from my shower. baby is measuring 7lbs at 37 weeks. he's estimated to be 8.5lbs at birth. do you think i'll need that many size 1 diapers? should i return it for a smaller box?

Re: Diaper Question for BTDT Moms

you go through alot of diapers in the begining... i think i was changing like 12 a day at one point so i would keep them... what i ended up doing was if i had any left of a size i held them for the next baby

Re: Diaper Question for BTDT Moms

keep them! DD was measuring large on my sonos too, but they ended up being a little off... they will give you size 1 diapers in the hospital but i actually found that the NB fit her better for a little while... she was 7.12 when she was born... and grew fast and i remember going through at least 2 big boxes of NB and 2 big boxes of size 1

Keep them! DS was 8.10 and he's in size 1's - has been since the hospital. I regret even buying a package of NB ones because I have no use for them. Chat Icon

Keep them - attach the receipt to the box that way if you need to exchange for a bigger size you can do so without a problem.

My son measured 8lbs and he was only 6lb 12oz. But you will most likely go through them.

Definitely keep them! DD is 2 weeks old today and we've gone through 2/3's of a box of size 1's. She's nowhere close to needing to move up a size either. (DD was born 7 lbs 2 oz).

Re: Diaper Question for BTDT Moms

Keep them. But I will caution you that DS was measuring large in our sono too and he ended up being 7lbs. 8oz. And at 8 weeks old, he's STILL in newborn diapers. The size 1s are pretty big and even though he's almost 12lbs. now, the size 1s are too big on him still.

Re: Diaper Question for BTDT Moms

yup, definitely keep them. i had an average sized baby (7.14oz, born at 38wks) but he grew quickly. He's 90th percentile @ 8wks. We switched to size 2 diapers between weeks 7-8.

Keep the size 1s - you'll probably have to buy more, too!

1's you might use for a little while. If you have any NB, I would get rid of those. Not only do you use them in the hospital, but anything left on the bassinet - they tell you is yours so you get sent home with some as well. And the NB's dont fit very long.
