How many diapers will my baby need each day?

Hey ladies, 

I'm trying to make a budget and I'm wondering how many diapers a day a baby needs. I'm talking newborn-1 year old. 

how many wipes would you say you use per month?

Well depends on how often you change them

Newborns use 6-12 daipers a day (possibly as high as 15). And gradually it goes down, but you should expect up to ten until age one.

I would change them everytime their diaper is soiled.

6-10 diapers a day. I went through one Costco size box per kid every month(sonetimes it lasteda a bit longer)and I bought the Costco size box of wipes and those lasted two months for two kids.

I'd say on average ten a day between 0-6 months, but the do go les often as they get older, for my kids it was between 5-10 after 6 months, usually closer the middle, but it just depended on the day.....

At least eight a day for newborns, possibly double that some days. At least one pack of wipes every week to week and a half.

It does go down. My daughter is ten months and goes through five to ten diapers a day. I use one pack of wipes about every two weeks. One big box of diapers usually lasts at least two weeks, sometimes more.

You really can't plan on how many diapers, at least not exactly.

I would say 8-12 diapers per day. I also think about a package of wipes per week.

I was going to say 12-16 diapers for a new born. But its been 6 yrs since I had a newborn. I'll be learning all about this again in another 4 months :)At least 1-2 boxes of wipes a week
