Benjamin used to use the full 11 or 12 per 24 hours. He was alarm clock fed every 3 hours (yes we set the alarm every 3 hours to stave off a return to hospital and stripped him to nappy to wake / feed everytime) so he was always changed then and then a few inbetween. As he got a little older it went both up and down, so he was changed every 2 hours if awake.

Evie went through 10 a day easily - she was changed at every feed and I would also change if she did a wee or a poo in between times too, and then overnight. We used prefolds with her for the first 6 months so really they washed and dried so quickly it didnt really matter how many she went through.

If Jake is a good sleeper though you will be changing less than a baby who is very active and wide awake :D

Charlotte wanted feeding at least every 3 hours in the beginning and she pooped after every one so we definately went through 8-10 nappies a day when she was a newborn.

Ben was different, he tended not to poo every feed and I couldn't change him before a feed as he was so upset and couldn't change him after as lying him down made him sick so I tended to avoid changing his nappy if I could possibly get away with it.

All babies are different but it can't hurt to have a few spares for days like today :wink: :giggle:

That's totally understandable, it's to make up for all those new Daddy's who put the new nappy on just as the baby poos :giggle:
