  • 10-12 is pretty standard. On January 8, 2009 my daughter Carly went through 16( 6 different " changers" helped with diaper duty that day.)

  • Depends how often they poop, and if you change them after 1 little pee or wait til the diaper is fairly wet.

  • If you change a diaper after every little drop of pee or poo, you could easily change every hour!

    A newborn eats every 1.5-3 hours, so you'll AT LEAST change them that often...

  • They say that they should have AT LEAST 6-8 wet diapers a day, not including poopy diapers, so I would say an average somewhere around 10
