    Hi ladies, I've been to Aldi and bought 350 size 2 nappies. How many of the other sizes will I need? I'm having twins will size 2 be ok? They are for 6-13lbs. Should I be buying a shed load of size 1's too? TIA XXXX

    My son was 7lbs 11 and we found the smaller size were ft better in the first few weeks and causes less leaks, Lao they usually have a dip for the cord.

    I would agree that it would be better to have size 1s to start you off. Our first was in them for weeks.

    I would definately get some smaller ones. Depending on the size of your twins you may even want to take a pack of micro (size 0) nappies. My lo was 5lb1oz and was in micros for the first 3 weeks or so.

    I'd defo say size 1. I had an 6lb 10oz baby who lost 10oz due to jaundice and size 1's kept leaking out the sides of the legs. Had to buy 2 packs of tiny baby size until he filled out abit but then was back in 1's for a while x

    My lo was 6lb 3 and in size 1 nappies for a good few weeks. I think he was then in size 2 until about 12/13 weeks xx

    Twins are generally smaller. I would buy micro and size 1. But I would imagine you will need more micro. My little girl was 4lbs 9 born and was in micro for ages. I think 4-6lb is average for twins? I could be wrong though. I assume you will have growth scans? If so I would wait until later before buying them. My daughter needed early baby (up to 5lbs) clothes. So you may need to get a few bits in just in case. Buy them later and keep the receipts so you can return them just in case they're bigger xx
