thanks everyone, i've got 3 trial packs and then a full pack of a brand that doesn't do trial packs! They're all newborn size and the baby is measuring averagely so hopefully i'll be ok. This is expensive! On to the cloth nappies as soon as poss!
Well, I thought I was being proactive and organised. Bought all my nappies before I went on maternity leave... This picture will out me. Dont care at this point lol
My son is 13 days old and was 10lb 1oz at birth. Was 10lb 6oz 3 days ago. Happy bf bub. The sainsburys nappies I bought apparently go to 13lbs but I don't think so.... He is quite literally massive. Luckily I have friends I can divvy them off too. Soooo buy 1 thing of nappies to bring with you to the hospital and go from there!!!
Don't overorder. DS was so tall (not too heavy for newborn size but too tall) that he only wore that size for a couple of weeks before they didn't come far enough up his back to work properly. Weight isn't the only factor.
Trian I ended up with leftover newborn nappies and gave them to the NICU at the hospital I gave birth in - they'll never be wasted if you do that and it doesn't feel like such a waste of money if you have an enormous baby who is straight into size 2 nappies!
Don't buy too many nappies. Some babies skin don't get on with certain brands, best have enough to get you through the first few days. It also gives you an excuse to get out of you feel up to it. Or to send someone our for supplies (make them get cake too)
