Even before your baby is born, you are faced with an immense number
of decisions regarding the products and services you will use to care
for your baby. If you delivered your baby in a hospital, you were most
likely given starter diapers. As a first time parent, you may not know
which diaper brand you want to use. And, like many people, you probably
assumed that the diapers you received were a good fit for your
family. After all, if the hospital is giving them to you, they have to
be good, right?While no hospital will provide supplies that will
be detrimental to any patient, most hospitals do not have preferred
diaper suppliers. Generally, manufacturers provide supplies of diapers
to hospitals as a marketing tool to get parents hooked as early as
possible. It is a very effective strategy in that, if you can secure the
payment of $30 a week for three years, the cost of the initial diaper
supply has more than paid for itself.But, as a parent, you need
to figure out which diapers are right for your child. You have already
marveled over the individual fingers and individual toes. Now, it is
time to determine which diaper will cover your child's individual
tush. Part of figuring out which diaper will work is gaining an
understanding how diaper sizing works. Logically, diapers are sized
based on weight. The amount of diapers per package also decreases as the
size of the diapers increase. This means that you will get fewer
diapers per pack as your child grows.Here's A Simple
Example Of Different Diapers SizesTo get a better
familiarity with diaper sizing, this article will explore one brand of
disposable diapers and their sizing metrics. As most babies are
born under ten pounds, the standard newborn diapers will be
appropriate. They are categorized for up to ten pounds. Some parents
forego the newborn diapers and opt for size 1-2. This is realistic by
weight, but does not take into account diaper accommodations for the
umbilical cord stump. Newborn diapers are specially designed to leave
room for the cord stump to heal and eventually fall off, which typically
occurs a few weeks after birth.Once your child begins to grow,
you will use weight as a measuring tool to determine when you need to
purchase the next size up. You may want to determine whether your child
has output capacity for the next size up. For example, normally if your
child reaches 16 lbs, you are ready to purchase size 3. However, if your
child is slow to gain weight or is in a lower weight percentile, your
child still may have the output capacity of size 3 diapers. Disposable
diapers range in size from Newborn to Size 6, which accommodates over
35 lbs. The normal size weight ranges are:-Up
to ten pounds: newborn-8 to 15 pounds: Size 1-2-16 to 28
pounds: Size 3-22 to 37 pounds: Size 4-27 plus
pounds: Size 5-Over 35 pounds: Size 6Once your baby has
graduated from diapers, you can stick with the diaper products and
switch to training pants. Also, if you like to spend time swimming or at
the wading pool in the summer, you might want to pick up a package of
swim pants to make sure your baby is a welcome visitor at any aquatic
attractions you visit.

Currently, my son is stalled out at Huggies Diapers
Size 3. Even though he moved through the other sizes fairly
quickly during his first year, his weight gain has tapered off now that
he's over one, and we've bought box after box of Huggies diapers size 3 -
it's incredible. We've been sitting with the box of size 4 diapers in
his bedroom for ages thinking he was "about to" to grow into them. We've
had that box for months now.So, keep an eye on your child's
weight and if he's starting to have problems with leaks or over-filling
the diapers, it might be time to move up in diaper size.If you
want, feel free to visit my website to find out where to get the best
prices on Huggies diapers of all sizes... especially my favorite - Huggies
Diapers Size 3.
