I had wanted to stockpile diapers when I was pregnant with Asher. I did not because everyone was telling me not to, that they grow out of diapers so fast, and that it is a waste of money. Well from experience, having to send your husband to the store at 11pm because you are out of diapers is not ideal when your exhausted. Each child is different and grows at a different rate. I don't plan to over do it with the stockpile, but I want a good cushion. I don't want to be running all the time for diapers!
What I am doing right now is when I need diapers for Asher, I pick up a bag for the baby as well. A great tip my bestie just told me last is that Wal-Mart accepts name brand diapers for returns, even if the diapers are not bought there. Well how great is that! She got a lot of diapers at her baby shower and had an over abundance of size 1 diapers. Once her little one was in size 2, she took any unopened boxes/ bags of size 1 diapers to Wal-Mart and exchanged them for size 2. Great tip to know!
Asher did not last long in size 2 or size 4. I based my list off my experience with Asher. Like I said it is not a huge stockpile but I know it will help!
A diaper raffle is great for baby showers!
Diaper Stockpile List:
Newborn: 1 box (Asher was out of these quickly!)
Size 1: 3 Boxes (Asher was in 1's for awhile!)
