    Talk to me about diapers!

    Advertisements
    Numbers, specifically. How many diapers did you go through on an average day with your newborn? I know cloth is cheaper, but honestly, with DH leaving so soon after the birth and a few other reasons I am not up to the task. We are looking into some cloth services, though, and trying to weigh the costs. I know it's totally ball parkish but if I can get an idea of what we'll spend on diapers in a month it would help a lot!

    Oh wow. How horrible is it that I can't remember? A lot. My girls hated being in wet diapers.

    I think a box of diapers would last me about 2ish weeks. Some days she used more, others less.

    The big box of diapers size 1 (108) usually lasted me 2 weeks. On average we were going through around 10 (+ or -) diapers a day.

    Gosh I don't remember. lol It wasn't too bad. We buy a 4 pack of diapers (each pack had 40 diapers I believe) for $40 or so. It lasts us a good amount of time. DH refuses to change Leo if we do cloth so we use Seventh Generation Free and Clear diapers.

    8-10/day (less at night). The thing with my baby girl is, that she absolutely hates wet/dirty diaper. We started her with Pampers Sensitive and a month or so ago we transitioned her to Luvs UltraLeakGuard.

    as newborns about 8-12 a day.

    We cloth and I honestly found it a LOT easier when DH wasn't home, if there were sposies in the house he would use them, now that we only have cloth, he has no other choice, but I started full time cloth while he was deployed and found the transition very easy and a lot less stressful, I also don't have to worry about running out.

    Thanks for all your answers! I was thinking about ten a day when I was doing my calculations. The one and only diaper service around here is $22 a week after the initial set up fee. I guess we'll stick with sposies.
