Default How long was your baby in newborn diapers? – 12-20-2008, 08:01 PM

I’ve been using the newborn diapers for 2 1/2 weeks now. It says on the package that it’s up to 10 lbs and then the size 1 diapers says 8 – 15 lbs. When can I start using the size 1 diapers? It’s just that I’ve got a lot of size 1 diapers and was just wondering how many more newborn diapers I’ll need to buy. My baby is probably about 7lbs 5 oz now.

Mine always started using the next size up prior to hitting the minimum weight. I wouldn’t bother to buy anymore newborn diapers…your size 1s are probably fine.***If she still has her umbilical stump, just tuck the top of the size 1s under so that it doesn’t rub.

I mostly depended on fitting. If the diaper seemed small, I’d get new ones the following day and put away the others (you never know when you’ll need them again some day).

For a while actually. My daughter is very tiny. She’s almost 2 and is only the size of a typical one year old but there’s nothing wrong with her at all. The doctor’s actually like that she’s so small. Her bone structure just isn’t very big. She only gained a pound a month until she turned one and she was 7 pounds 3 ozs when she was born.

I only used newborn until his umbilical stump fell off. After that it doesn’t matter if you cover the belly button with a sz one. I think you will be fine to switch. They outgrow those size ones really fast, especially if you are breastfeeding!

my daughter never wore NB diapers she was 8 lbs 6.6 oz at birth so we started out in size 1’s. i would give her a little while longer in NB given her size (otherwise you might have leaks.)

As soon as you feel your baby is big enough and the nappies fit well.My children grew out of their newborn nappies within a couple of weeks too.

I would start when you baby gets to 8 lbs to avoid leaks.

Go ahead try a stage 1 see if it fits alright…My guess says it will be just fine..My son started using stage 1 before he was 8 pounds..Just because the newborns were 2 small…I had alot of newborn extra…
