How many diapers and wipes do I need per month!?
We hear this soooo often! So that’s why we wrote this blog for you. So go grab a cup of coffee/tea, relax and find out!
Becoming a new parent can be overwhelming. From wearing your heart on your sleeve to having a new life to keep safe and happy – it’s a whirlwind of emotions. When expecting a child, you’re walked through feeding patterns and milestones to expect. A topic that isn’t as common as it should be is diapers. Yalla Baby Box, a monthly baby essentials subscription box, is here to guide you through everything you need to know about diapers and wipes.
DAY ONE TO DAY THREE
Depending on where you are in your pregnancy, you may or may not have heard about meconium. It’s a dark green, odorless substance that your newborn will be dropping in their diapers on their first days in the world.
Meconium is your baby’s first milestone: their first-ever bowel movement.
Given the nature of meconium, it’s recommended to use disposable diapers as it may not be as easy to wash out of cloth diapers. Day one – done.
Most babies are born weighing between 2 to 4 kgs. Yalla Baby Box’s specialists recommend 300 diapers and 600 wipes for their first month.
HOW MANY SIZE ONE / NEWBORN DIAPERS DO YOU NEED?
Your baby will need more diapers than ever, in the first month. Their bowel movements will be quite active before solids are introduced into their diet. During this month, our specialists recommend 260 diapers and 520 wipes. Size one diapers are a perfect fit for babies weighing between 3 to 6 kgs.
A GUIDE TO DIAPERS AFTER SIZE ONE
Diaper sizes vary depending on your child’s weight and bowel movements, as they grow older. But the good news is – you will be changing less diapers as the months pass. Here is a guide to diapers and wipes after size one:
Size 2: 200 diapers | 400 wipes (for babies 5 to 8 kgs)
Size 3: 160 diapers | 320 wipes (for babies 7 to 13 kgs)
Size 4: 140 Diapers | 140 wipes (for babies 9 to 17 kgs)
Size 5: 140 Diapers | 140 Wipes (for toddlers) Size 6: 110 Diapers | 110 Wipes (for toddlers)
