What size diapers might a 16 month old wear?

A friend of mine's husband passed away last night and I am going to fix up a "travel" bag for their 16 month old...I'm sure they will be on the go a lot within the next few days and I thought it might be nice to have a bag packed for him that they can just grab...but I can't remember what size diapers a 16 month old might wear. He is average size...also what kinds of snacks/drinks/toys (that can be packed in a diaper bag) does your 15/16 month old like? Thanks so much...this was very sudden.

  • Size 3 or 4 - my 13 month old is just starting to wear 4's at nighttime for better protection and he is average size. The sizes overlap in weight a little bit so I would say go with the 4.

  • I would go with a size 4 for an average size kid. juice, white grape juice. Snacks...cereal (cheerios), toast, cheese chunks (soft cheddar), chunks of soft cooked fruits/veggies (steamed carrots, apple, pear, etc.) , crackers. Toys...maybe a fancy cell phone toy, little cars/trucks, a ball that bounces?

  • My girls were all in a size 3 moving into a size 4. I think. My son was also in a size 6 at that age. He was over 9lbs at birth and was in a size 3 at like 4 months old, lol (he never even fit into newborn diapers). My youngest is almost 3 and would still fit into a size 4...but she's been potty trained for awhile now.
