  • I think we went through about 210 or 220. It should be about 4-7 diapers per day

  • i think we went through 8-10 a day with our son, he hated a wet diaper, even slightly wet, so about 300 in the first month

  • Newbies use a WHOLE lot of diapers. Especially breastfeeding ones... It's like the second they eat they're leaving you a present.

    This usually slows down after the first month.

    At Costco they sell HUGE boxes of diapers for almost 50$ you can get a box of almost 300 diapers.

    AFTER your first month, my now 6 month old goes through one of the 20$ boxes every 3 weeks. Which as 96 diapers or so in it.

  • We used cloth, so we used about 10-12 a day on average. We had 3 dozen prefolds.

  • I think we had about thirty
