Are newborn diapers and size 1 the same?
Baby’s first diaper will likely be a newborn size (up to 10 pounds) or size 1 (up to 14 pounds), but there are also preemie diapers for the tiniest babies (up to 6 pounds). You may want to stock up on a few packs of different sizes before baby arrives just to be prepared.
How do I know if a diaper is too small?
Examine a diaper in the current diaper size to see how it fits your baby. If you notice red marks around your baby’s upper legs and tummy from the elastic in the diaper, the diaper is likely too small. Additionally, if you notice that the diaper looks or feels too snug on your baby, it is likely too small.
When should I switch to pull ups?
A lot of pull ups come in a size 3, meaning they can be worn by children between 7 and 12 months old with a weight of around 7 – 13kg. So as soon as a baby or toddler reaches this age and weight, then you can start considering them for pull ups.
How do I know what weight diapers to use?
Place a dry, new diaper on the scale, zero the scale again, remove the diaper and use it. The scale is now ready to measure a wet diaper. To measure the wet diaper, place it on the scale that has been zeroed with that diaper, and measure the grams. Grams translate to milliliters (1 gram = 1 ml) for your I & O chart.
