    Thinking we have enough nappies stocked for the first few months.... Just wondering if we were to keep stocking up should I move up to size 4 or keep going with few more size 2's and 3's??

    I have:

    220 x newborn (4 to 11lb)
    103 x size 2 (6 to 13lb
    50 x size 3 (9 to 15lb)
    674 x size 3 (9 to 20lb)

    I've gone with the weights rather then numbers as some brands were different.

    Wow! That's a lot of nappies. I think we have about 150 newborn and that's it! Don't think I'd know where to store them all. x

    U may need more but it also depends on how long Hallie is in that size for aswell, Some she may take longer to grow out of even with the weight estimates xx

    I've stocked up with a couple of packs of size 1 and 2 but I have cloth for when my new little man is big enough (my little boy is a cloth bum during the day). The one thing I will say about stocking up too much is that some brands suit some babies better and different babies will grow out of nappies at different times, you don't want to have too many of a set brand and it not suit your baby. When my little boy was newborn Huggies suited him best (such a shame they aren't available anymore!) then once he became more mobile pampers and tesco suited. He is also only just moving to 4+ (he's in disposables at night) whereas one of his little friends has been in 5s for months x

    It sounds like a massive amount of newborn nappies to me. My kids were out of those pretty quickly (I think) I always thought it was between 5-7 nappies each day or so? (Nt really sure because I don't use disposables). If you get a big or plump baby you will be using them a month tops.

    I was told roughly 10 nappies a day so I went with about a months worth 220/10= 22days.

    Oh well if I don't use them, I can pass them on as there are lots of people having babies round me so they won't go to waste :) xx

    We were easily going through 10 a day in the first couple of weeks. Not sure if being breastfed has anything to do with it. She was 6lb 9 and I believe in newborn nappies for 3 weeks. So you might be alright with the numbers. I would stop for now though!!! surely you don't want to have loads of nappies hanging around in the cupboards for years?!

    Supermarkets are really good in swapping for a bigger size etc. My friend did this even without receipts as long as same brand and pack size/cost.
