So I have stocked up on size 1 nappies in the asda baby event but just seen that tesco have 2 jumbo packs (74 x2) nappies for 15 quid - usually 12 each. I don't know whether to get size 2 or 3 or how long the average baby is in each size....help!!
I only used size one for a couple of weeks, perhaps three weeks with DD as she was smaller and had skinny little legs at first. I would get size 2, you will probably use that size for at least six weeks. Nappies have offers on them very often, I wouldn't amass a huge stockpile before your baby is born. Size 4 is the size you are likely to use for the longest period of time.
Also be aware different brands suit different babies - so I wouldn't stock up on one brand in any size, just small packs of a few brands and see how they are on your baby. Last thing you want is mountains of nappies that don't suit your LO and leak every time.
I think you've got enough for now. Just no need to stockpile. You really do need to test them out before buying loads.
I think I got a few packs in of size 1 and despite ds2 being quite large at birth we were in that size for maybe 4 weeks or more. The size up just leaked for being huge.
I suggest trying Aldi ones as well as they're very cheap and good. I find that newborn nappies are always going to leak as they do such liquid poo.
Ds1 got pampers all the time. Ds2 got a mix of Aldi and tesco own brand with some pampers for nighttime. I also took back a few packs to Aldi and changed them for the size up because I'd bought them fairly recently.
I agree with another poster that different brands suit different shaped babies, I went a bit ott and stocked up with Morrisons only to find they leaked around her legs and the Aldi ones fitted better so I ended up giving them to a friend.
This time I have one pack of Tesco newborn ones and am waiting to see if they fit before I buy any more.
I've always been pleased with Pampers too as they're much softer that other brands but also twice the price so I only get them if they're on offer.
