  • Because the older they get the less you need to change them.

  • Ok, how about this theory...the manufacturers go by weight of the diapers in the cases/size of packaging for cost effectiveness (on their end - not ours!) and as the diapers get bigger in size, the weight then goes up so they need to decrease the number of diapers to remain at a closer consistancy across the board. LOL! I have no clue, but it sounded good in my head! LOL

  • isn't it the sizes, and you get basically the same amount of diaper material in the bags.

  • Scrapbook-awesome answer! I get diapers for 6.99 at the Safeway here and the Walmart here, but they are the smaller bags. I want to know why for the same size different brands have different amounts? Explain that? Like the Luvs small size 3 has 40 diapers, the Huggies small size 3 has 33 I think.
