  • my son goes through a small pack of diapers a week (it's better to just get the box, it lasts longer) lol

  • a newborn usually poops and/or pee's every feeding, so you change them about every 2-3 hrs. As a few weeks go by, it will be less often. And dont buy too many packs of NB size b/c your baby may out grow them too! I would get 3 packs of NB and one size 1. Just incase the baby is big.

  • yeah my baby was big, he could only wear the nb size for a week (he was 8lbs 6oz at birth) now he's in a size 2 (he's 5 weeks old lol)

  • I changed at every feed, so every 2-3 hours, 4 at night. She was always wet or poopy then. Sometimes more. We went through a box in about 1.5 - 2 weeks.
