Anaïs: How many diapers are used per day for a baby? It’s a silly question but it’s my first …
Chloe: It depends on whether you’re breastfeeding or not A breastfed baby practically poop at each feeding, about every 3 hours. I think a bottle-fed baby does it less often. For pee, this may be a little more space, especially as modern diapers absorb really well and keep the skin dry.
Agnès: For breastfed children, it depends on My daughter, when she was 100% breastfed, had only one bowel movement a day (sometimes not for several days, without any pain); according to the pediatrician, some breastfed children use everything and therefore have little or no waste.
Coralie: At the maternity ward, I was recommended … To change my baby 6 to 8 times a day. I changed it before each bottle. My baby is now 4 months and a half and I change it 6 to 7 times a day (before his 4 bottles and when he had a bowel movement) and no problems with irritated buttocks to date.
Anais: And I’m planning how many packages for the return of motherhood? Louise: 2 packets of diapers, it’s a good start. Then concerning the size, you can take 2/5 kg. You have to go to the supermarkets who regularly make specials, to have good prices: type, 2 packages bought, the 3rd offered, or 1 jumbo bought (big box) the 2nd half price.
Solène: A tip: I will first look at whether your baby supports the diapers you bought
Personally, before buying x packets, I would look if the baby supports them (we never know). Then, depending on your tastes, and the way this or that layer goes to the baby, you can always take advantage of specials: there are regularly in supermarkets, whatever the brands.
Anaïs: Who has ideas for buying cheaper diapers? Emma: Amount of coupons
Do not worry too much: as soon as you look at it, you’ll have lots of coupons on all sorts of baby products, especially for diapers. You can register on the websites of the main brands of diapers, they will send you quickly and frequently. Super and hypermarkets also often make specials, even on the internet.
Laurence: About the specials:
If you find them in specials, take in advance: a package size 2-5 kgs and another kind 3-6 kgs; then you will have the opportunity to go get some or else take full size 3-6 kgs, look at what the midwife or gynecologist tells you (for me, she had calculated the weight and to the nearest gram she had just fallen); if it is already over three kilos, it is not worth taking a lot of packages 2-5 kgs.
