    Hey ladies!

    I'm thinking its about time i started stocking up, ive been a bit lazy so far, my mum has started us off by giving us a couple of packs of new born size1

    So my questions are, how many of each size are you buying? any particular brand? no idea where to start :shock:

    Thanks

    Hey hun,

    I've just bought newborn size one so far. I've got a few packs of pampers but a lot of Asda ones from when they were on £1 offer! I think they're up to 11lbs or something so hopefully will be ok!

    Hey hun I started with a mix of huggies and pampers size 1 and LO was in size 1 for ages...so didn't get any size 2 initially! Then just a case of deciding which brand you prefer?!

    LO was only in size 2 for a week or two and has now been in 3 for a few weeks with plenty of room! So I wouldn't buy loadsa size 2 as quite a few people have said that their LO was only in size 2 for a short time!

    HTH xx

    Can honestly say I used between 5-7 packs of size 1 then brought as I needed after that x I never stocked up as Didn't see point as its wasted money if you don't use them x

    I 5 packs of size 1 and 5 of size 2. The size one were pampers - cos i ordered asda's own brand online when they were £1 a pack - but they sent a substitute :) - then the size 2 are tescos own cos they were £1 a pack a week later.

    If i was you - you've still a good three months - i'd hang on to see if the offers come back on again - someone always posts them here - then get some of what evers going cheap to start, till you figure out what you and LO prefer.

    I only really stocked up cos i figured at £1 instead of £3.50 it was a major bargain - so im not worried if i dont use them all.

    With my first I bought absolutely tons of size 1s, so many you could build a fort out of them! But then they told me I was having this biiiig baby and so I paniced that I had wasted loads of money and started stocking up on 2s and 3s... as it turns out my baby was normal size and was in size 1s til he was 3 months old! But he did go from size 2 to 3 v quickly, like a few weeks. He has been in size 4s for about 6 months now and they are still fitting him fine.

    Also, I stocked up on pampers to start with then I started getting huggies. Turns out my LO wasn't suited to pampers at all as a newborn, and huggies never leaked at all, but pampers did. Now he's older he's in pampers as huggies don'[t fit as well now!

    Get couple of different brands so you can decide which one suits your lo, I ended up with pampers. You can order them on amazon quite cheapy and they deliver. You never know which size you will need, we have been in size 3 for a week now

    I got about 6 packs of the £1 asda ones when they were on offer a couple of months ago in my experience I have found these quite good, I used to work in a nursery and we used these I remember someone once telling me they were made by pampers. I have 4 of the huggies newborn starter packs, I bought one when the asda baby event was on and they got reduced to £3 and got 3 free by joining the asda parenting club in mine and DH's name and for some reason it printed 2 vouchers out when I did mine ! so if you havn't joined get joining I love a freebie !

    ive got size 1 huggies and pampers and i bought 10 washable nappies in birth to potty size with 20 inners. im planning to use those the most but to go the first few weeks on disposies til i get used to everything. saves a fortune. 40 quid for the washables so far and even if i buy 10 more at 40 again it wont add up to how much id spend on disposables over the first couple of years. plus they look so cute!

    yeah, when out or if someone else is babysitting then disposables are easier.
    omg tho the washables ones are so fuzzy and soft too. the ones i have with hearts and the cow pattern are soft on the outside and the stars ones are smooth and waterproof feeling without being that horrid plastic feel stuff....i actually could cuddle those nappies lol. long as theyre not used and waiting for a wash!

    I have bought the ones from kiddicare too because they had really good reviews and it works out cheaper to buy in bulk like that. Handy that they get delivered to u as well! I bought one box of the smallest nappies and one box of the next size up for now. I think I might need to get more of the smaller ones but I will wait until baby arrives to see how big he is before I do! :)
