  • My oldest, the smallest was 7lbs 10 oz. I never bought newborn diapers and he was out of size 1 in 3 weeks. He was in size 0-3 for about 3 weeks.

  • My first was in newborn clothes a couple of weeks, never newborn diapers. They put her in size 1-2 pampers in the hospital and that's what I stuck with but she was big and grew quickly.

    DD#2 was in newborn clothes nearly 4 months and diapers just about as long.

    Funny thing is DD#2 was bigger than DD#1 at birth lol!

  • Not sure. My daughter was 6 lbs 8 oz. She lost a bit of weight and struggled to regain. I know we went through 3 boxes of newborn diapers maybe 4. So about 1 box per 2 weeks so 1-2 months. I didn't have any newborn sizes. Just 0-3 and she was in those for a while. She's 2 1/2 now and still wears 18 month sizes.

  • My dd was born @ 35 wks, weighed 5lbs 2 oz and has stayed small ever since. She turning 1 next wk and still fits her 6-9 mth clothes. She was behind developmentally for the first 6 mths then she suddenly learned everything really really quickly. She spoke her first word @ 7-8 mths and has added since then. Its amazing how different babies can be!

  • My son was 9 lbs 20 inches when born, so never had a chance at having him in newborn diapers or clothes. He's 3 months now, 11.5lbs 23 inches and wears 3-6 months clothes. He's slowing growing out of them as well. :(
    I agree with the other ladies ... they grow SO fast!!
