During the first two years of your baby’s life, you’ll feel you spend a lot of your time changing diapers. However, the good news is that with practice it only takes a little time to change them. Also remember that the number of wet and dirty diapers you change are a good indication of your baby’s health. That is, if you don’t change enough wet diapers, it might mean that your little one needs more hydration, and if you don’t change dirty diapers he might be constipated.
How many diapers a day should I change?
After the first few months have passed, your baby will probably wet and soil around 8 diapers a day, which adds up to 240 diapers per month. So many diapers! So it is recommended to calculate costs, look for coupons and buy them when you have the opportunity to save as much as possible. On the other hand, if you use cloth diapers, make sure to have more than 8 clean diapers ready every day to meet with your child’s needs. Remember it’s important to change a diaper as soon as you notice it’s wet or dirty. It’s often hard to notice a wet diaper when it’s disposable because it usually won’t bother your baby, so it’s important to check the diaper frequently.
