Diaper Buying Guide for Newborn and Infant

It is confusing enough to become a parent for the first time; but you shouldn't have to worry about interpreting a diaper size chart to determine which ones to stock up on. New parents will be a diaper master by the time they’re done because babies go through thousands of diaper changes before potty training.  Though it seems complicated to know where to begin with so many brands and variations on the market, reading through this article will guide you on diaper buying. In the end, you already know how many diapers you need, approximately how much diapers cost, and learn about diaper size chart for your baby according to weight. 


Your baby poops and pees constantly for the first several months and for new parents, having a lot of dirty diapers can be intimidating—not to mention expensive. Long-term savings can be achieved by stocking up, but if you are a first-time parent, you may have some concerns. Here are some reasons that might be challenging to define the correct solutions:

  1. You will have to learn as you go how to predict how much your newborn will require to change a diaper. On an average basis, newborns need eight to twelve diapers each  day, but each newborn is different and this will depend on your baby liquid intake.
  2. Each baby develops at a different rate, which is why diapers are determined by weight rather than age. It is impossible to estimate the sizes they will require at 3 months, 15 months, and so on.
  3. As newborns grow up, their diaper sizing needs to change. During the newborn period, your baby will require the most number of diapers. When they reach the potty training stage, babies may only require four to five diapers each day.

Thus, if parents want to estimate how many diapers they will use, it is better to arrange everything by diaper size chart.

How many diapers do you need?

Parents who use disposable diapers quickly realize how fast a baby may go through a massive amount of diapers in their first year. For first-time parents, the sheer quantity of options is intimidating, whereas seasoned parents may already be loyal to one brand. Family and friends will sometimes opt to give newborn diapers as a present during baby showers, even though most infants acquire around 3 pounds in the first month, babies born with a higher birth weight tend to miss this diaper size entirely.



How Much Diapers Usually Cost?

When it comes to selecting the best baby diapers, affordability is crucial. Considering diapers are being used on a daily basis for at least the first two years of your baby's life, you should be fully informed about the costs of various baby diaper brands. If you like two different brands equally, choose the one that is more affordable but high in quality. 


The table below can be used as a guide for stocking up on disposable diapers. Keep in mind that every baby is unique, and these numbers are merely estimates provided for planning purposes.
