Diapers

Hi parents! Just like some opinions about my stock of diapers for my newborn coming in Oct: Pampers Newborn (180pcs) Huggies Platinum Size S (246pcs) Drypers Size S (656pcs) Total: 1082 diapers which I’ve averaged on 10 diaper changes per day could last me about 3.5 months min. I’m tempted to buy Rascal+Friends Size S, Merries Size S and Peekapoo Size S but I’m not sure how fast my baby girl would grow and perhaps I may need a Size M after 3 months? Reason why I bought Pampers Newborn is because I’ve been told they’re larger in size as compared to most brands and Huggies as backup since it’s one of the smallest in size. Drypers cause they’re so much cheaper. All in all, I’m still unsure which brand my baby will not be allergic to or which brand is the best poonami or leak-proof as I’ve yet to find out. My question is, is it really necessary to stock up on different brands (due to skin sensitivity and budget in the long run) and when do babies usually change to a size up? Please also share your experiences! Thanks in advance! 😍

Wow you really have a lot stocked up. Heh. Honestly, you may want to hold off buyinh anymore for now. Every baby grows at a different rate, so you can wait and see how yours grows before buying the next size:) Honestly, my baby was so petite that almost all the brands were too big for her, so she used Huggies Gold NB size for about 4 months and Huggies Platinum NB (bigger cutting) for another 2+ months. Lol. But I’m an anomaly. There are babies that go from NB to S size within a month or 2. My baby’s almost 11 months old and still using S size. Essentially.. I suggest you don’t stock up anymore new brands. Heh. At most, try to get free samples from all the brands (try the diaper brand clubs or online baby fairs). Anyway, there will be more baby fairs and online sales on 11.11/Black Friday/Christmas, so you can get good prices at the end of the year:)

I go around trying to get diff brand of sample as I really don't know what suit my baby.. and hospital gave Huggies platinum NB.. and tried the rest of the sample and decided to stick with Huggies as he now having diaper rash n better storage during the night.. then I move on to S in ard 3month n he overgrown the S super fast when I stock up like alot.. when he is 5+month, he already using M size.. so my advise is, stop buying for now.. just get sample of u wan..

Thats should be enough for now.. see the progress of baby growth. I only buy 180 pieces for now for my 2nd baby since delivery from redmart is quite fast. Yes average of 10 pieces per day from my experiencd for my 1st baby. Dont overstock as u dont know if your bb is allergy to whichever brand

I've stopped stocking up on diapers ever since the last time I stocked up 4 packets of S size diapers and she outgrown all those when she's just 3 months+ old. Before 4 months old my girl already in M size diapers already

Don't need to stock up. I only stock up when baby got no issue with that particular diaper. My baby just use 1 pack of nb and change s quickly. S to M in 3 months. It depends on individual baby.
