I am looking for information on how long mums tend to use size 1 nappies. In the UK this is the newborn size (4-11 ilbs). The next size (2 in the UK) starts at 6 lbs.

My baby was 8lb14 at birth, she barely wore newborn nappies. I think she was in size 2 within a month.

Not long. Maybe a month or so if that?
I wouldn't stack up on that size. They generally whip through the sizes pretty quick.

My DS’s were both big babies, so went straight into the next size nappies and 0-3 mth clothing. My advice would be not to buy too many newborn size nappies.

No more than 6wks. She was 8lb 4 at birth

My 8lb baby was in then for about 3 days, size 2 for 4 weeks and size 3 from then until now, he’s 4 months

DS1 - couple of weeks
DS2 - too big for them at birth.

About 8 weeks. 6.6lbs at birth

Just over a week but only to use them up! 9lb+ baby.

Fairylea Mon 29-Jan-18 07:53:24

About two weeks I think.

Two weeks

DS was 9lb2oz and he was in them about a week and a half. Luckily my sister's friend had a baby girl about 3 weeks after I did so was able to pass them on without any waste. Definitely don't stock up on nappies for a new born. Just a weeks worth to start you off.

5 days for my first, but in retrospect he should have been straight into size 2. A fortnight for my second.

Thanks to everyone who replied to my question about nappy sizes. I won't stock up on the newborn size. babies don't seem to stay in that size very long. :-)

About a month.

My DS is still in them at 7 weeks 11lb, but he is very slim with a long body.

Couple of weeks, then size 2 for a couple more months.

DD was in them until 3 months, then size 2 until 6 months and still in size 3 at 10 months but she is a very slender baby.

My mum friends and I all found that we had to try different brands to find a good fit for our babies so that's another reason not to buy loads. Also there are other things like I can't stand the smell of Pampers brand so I'm glad I hadn't been bulk bought them!
