6-8 diapers a day in a 24 hr. period!?

My son is 2 mos old. He is exclusivly breastfed. He goes thru way more diapers than that in a 24 hr. period. I'd say 12-15 pretty FULL diapers...Anyone else's baby like this?? or was??

  • Thats good! That means he is getting more than enough nutrients! Congrats mama!

  • Breast fed baby's DO go through more diapers than a bottle fed baby. I think thats normal for your son to use that many.

  • My son was like that too. It was costly because diapers aren't cheap! lol But he was my first so I asked his doctor and she said that it is nothing to worry about as long as he is going. So at least you know he is eating well and getting enough!

  • DD was exclusively breastfed, and she went through more than 6-8 diapers as well. It's normal for breastfed babies :)
