    So ive started buying nappies for when :baby: arrives. I have about 3 packets of size 1's (2 pampers + 1 huggies). I was just wondering if this is enough of size 1's coz I know there is isnt a major difference between size 1 and 2 so should I just start buying size 2's now?

    How many nappies have ppl roughly bought in advance to last them the first month or so when LO arrives?

    Thanx

    I brought 3 packs of size 1 pampers before LO arrived. I did buy a few more once he was actually here though, He didnt move to size 2 untill he was about 3months old (i think if i remember right) And he was 7lb8oz at birth. I wouldnt buy any more than you've already got, Just put the money aside now to buy once LO is actually here x

    Niamh was 8lb 12oz when she was born and was in size 1 till she was about 3 months old. She's just gone into size 3 and she's 5 months. If you see a good offer over the next few months then you could get some more but you've got plenty.

    the only i was told about size 1s is they are best used until the cord comes away as they have a slight cut out bit for it and size 2 could rub.

    all nappies have a weight overlap bit.

    General rule of thumb is that a newborn goes through an average 8 diapers a day. I found that the pampers swaddlers were the best for me. I also found that if you had to use a diaper that was a touch big you can always fold it down at the top. The size 1 were just a touch too tall at first for my son so I folded the tops down and strapped him in that way.

    I have brought the same amount as you and wont be buying anymore until I know what suits him as the say some babies suit Pampers, others Huggies so till we know I don't want to waste money. Take care :hugs: XX
