  • We went through 8-10/day.

  • If you're breastfeeding the minimum is one per day of life for the first week, 6-8 per day thereafter. Ten a day is a good rule of thumb.

  • Oh, about a 100.

    Lol, no really, but that's what it seemed like. I think my son went through about 8-10 a day, but I can't remember exactly. It was a quite a bit, though. I think it also depends on the baby. My son was breastfed as a newborn and would poop like 3 times a day. My friends son would only poop once a week. When I have another child, I'd almost consider cloth for when they're newborns. The poop isn't too bad, and the pee is in small amounts, so it wouldn't be as much of a chore as when they start eating solids.

  • I would say about 8. I ordered a bulk pack of newborn diapers...124 in the box, and I count on that lasting at least 2 weeks.

  • I use cloth and until she was about 6 weeks old it was definitely 8-10 a day. I bought extras about a month is because I wanted to at least go 3 days between loads.

  • My first three were 8-10 a day for the first week my 4th is like a potty machine. He easily uses 10 a day, up to about 14 on a normal day. To be fair he never ever wants to stop eating though. My others were not like that.
