    Hiya ladies

    I know I probably drive some of you mad about bloody nappies :haha: We are saving some cash but I have vouchers to use and so am stocking up on nappies. I keep getting vouchers coming out my ears :D Okay so far I have (mixed brands)

    189 size 1's
    162 size 2's
    63 size 3's

    What should I get more of? LO will be born by c-section at approx 38-39 so maybe an okay size/weight.

    Thanks!!! :thumbup:

    Some babies don't need the size 1s or 2s for very long so I'd say stock up on the 3s. My son's always moved on nappy sizes quickly. x

    Might as well if you're saving money in the long run! I have a bit of an obsession with stocking up on nappies and wipes too. x

    i've heard from other moms (i can't back this up though), that babies stay in the sizes 2 and 3 the longest.

    Thanks ladies. Ill make a start on some more 2s and 3s. Ive stocked up on about 16 packs of wipes so far. I believe not a good idea to use them in the first few wks but after that i guess they will come in handy and if baby doesnt use them then me and hubby will as they are a regular on our shopping list. Lol. Xx

    Ohh thanks for starting this thread. I have tonnes of vouchers too, my purse is full of them - gotta love Baby Clubs! I have only newborn nappies (about 100 odd) so will definitely be getting some size 2s and 3s now after reading this.

    Hula, we have about 15 packs of wipes :lol: again, thanks to our vouchers and the fact we buy them every time we do a food shop and see them on offer. Poundland also has Johnson's Fragrance Free ones in there. Gotta love buying for poos and sickies in advance ;)

    I am a stock-up addict!

    I had bought 1500 nappies while pregnant with Anna!!

    I found Tesco babyclub the best for vouchers - sign your parents etc up too and get their vouchers!

    That 1500 nappies done Anna for around 9 months and cost under £90. It was all pampers we bought.

    Anna was born at 39+3, weighing 6 lb 15 oz.

    She went through 500 size 1, only 200 size 2 as there is a big overlap with pampers size 2 and 3, and easily 500 size 3.

    I have never had any problems with nappies not fitting etc so I will be stocking up again!:flower:

    Yes, they must be used within 12 months of opening. They have the symbol that cosmetics also have on them.

    If not opened they are fine.:flower:
