Iris averages about 7 a day. Some days it might be less; those days are the ones with more nappy-free time.

He has cut down the amount we change him, I think we have used 5 or 6 today. I well remember the days where it was 12 every day, but sometimes he is still dry when I go to change him, so it just gets put back on.

A general day is change into day nappy, clean nappy after breakfast while getting dressed (sometimes dry), 11.30, after lunch about 1.30, after nap about 4 ish then at 7 it's bath time then night nappy. Sometimes another will be fitted in in the morning or afternoon due to a poo.

I think my DH heard my jaw drop from the other room :shock:

At the moment she has used 9 for the day and she's still up. If she has a poo for England day it's like 15 in total. And she wee'd right through a few of these today too! (and on me and the chair, leg up + nursing = leaks for us)

At night either we have to change, or she holds it then does a big one in the AM and wets the bed (and me, lovely!)

I just ordered more nappies as we're washing the same ones all the time, I need a stash pic, you guys will laugh I bet

Wow thats alot!! you'll certainly save money compared to using sposies! DD uses 3 per day usually, although sometimes she doesnt get changed a third time and she just has 2 on :oops: then one at night, which is a WNNN without the extra hemp insert and the nappy is only half wet in the morning!
