My DH and I were just talking about this last night actually! Smile I think we also go through about 20 or so a day. That all depends, like you all have said, on how many dirty diapers we have in a day also. With teething that has been up to 4 a day sometimes...thankfully not lately!

I can't believe you all have the time to count. Well, i guess I could check my notes. But i am not sure i write every diaper change down. It seems like a gabillion x 2 lol

I would have to guess on average about 10. It all depends on how many poops they have a day.

Someone mentioned not having to buy diapers yet. At 8 1/2 months we have not bought baby wipes and still have two BOXES (not containers) under DD's crib. I bet we'll go a whole year without purchasing any. YIPPIE!

Its interesting, my babies seem to go at once if that makes sense. One minute the diaper is bone dry and literally the next its sopping wet. We go through about 10 diapers a day for both. They get changed right before bed as we have "overnight" diapers for them regardless of how wet or dry the diaper is.

a zillion I think! lol! hehe j/k ok it's more like 15-20, but I also have a toddler in diapers.

I'm very lucky though. we got TONS of newborn and premie diapers as shower gifts, so we've just now moved the twins up to size 1 diapers, and never bought a single newborn diaper. I dread the day that we run out of gift diapers. I'm afraid it's comming very soon tough. Smile but anyway that's our total.

Probably about 8-10. We change in the a.m., before next two feedings and before bed. Add to that a couple of poopy ones, and there's my count! I estimated in the first couple of months it was 14-18 per day. YIKES!

I changed them at every feeding, so every 2-3 hours I changed them... unless of course they had diahrreah or something and I changed them more frequently.

Just curious how many diapers you all go through in a day. I am sure it depends on the baby.

I go through an average of 18-20 day. I cheat a little though, my toddler is still in diapers. Wink

We go through between 8-10 diapers a day for both. Thankfully I bought a lot of diapers on sale when they were newborns I havn't had to buy any yet. But I only have a box and a half left so I need to buy some soon.
