  • A LOT. My DD didn't go thru too much the first few months, but now at 6 months, I buy a box of diapers about twice a month. The boxes come with about 80-100, depending on regular or Snugglers (I get Huggies).

  • It really depends on your child (when you have your baby) but I would start stalking up now.

  • It changes as they get older, you'll change a newborn a lot. Have you considered cloth diapering? It saves loads of money.

  • Newborn uses up 8-10 diapers a day (about every 3 hours or so), plus the accidential poop during the changing, that'll waste about 1-2 diapers easy.

  • i would say 8-10 diapers a day! even at a year i change my dd every 3 hours! we cloth diaper so sometimes its hard to tell when she is wet unless u change her! cloth diapers save a ton of money! i spent $100 and its lasted me a year im just now buying bigger covers! u would easily spend that in 2 months doing disposable diapers!

  • I'm not too fond of the cloth diapers... Don't like the way of cleaning them...
