How Long Are Babies in Size 1 Diapers?


There are so many things for you to prepare before your newborn arrives, crib, diapers, clothes, nursing bottle, etc.

Which is most commonly used in quantity? There is no doubt that a newborn baby uses many diapers in a single day.

But do you know how many diapers your baby will use and how many of each size to buy? When it comes to diapers, intended parents usually ask the two questions. As not all babies start from the newborn diapers, you can learn from the size 1 diaper.

In Lionpapa’s last blog, we have discussed how many diapers your baby will use.

And in this blog, Lionpapa will introduce how long will your baby be in size 1 diapers and how to prepare for it.


What size diaper should my child wear?

If you have observed the diaper packages in the baby store, you would have noticed that there is a ‘size by weight’ note. To put it simply, the diaper sizes of your baby depend on your baby’s weight.

For instance, if your newborn weighs 7 pounds, you should buy the newborn diapers. And if your baby’s weight is between the size and the next size, try the next size-up diapers. For instance, if your baby is 13 pounds, you can begin to wear the size 2 diapers for your baby.


How long are babies in size 1 diapers?

Many new moms have a tendency to buy diapers in advance. You may also want to stockpile diapers before your baby arrives. Before deciding the amount of size 1 diapers, you may want to know how long your baby will be in size 1 diapers.

Babies grow at different rates and they also are born at different weights.

Generally speaking, babies gain 2 pounds every month in the first six months. In the United States, the average birth weight is approximately 7.5 pounds. 

Size 1 diapers are designed for babies in weight 8 to 14 lbs. It means most babies stay in size 1 diapers for 2 to 3 months. 

But it differs from baby to baby. If your baby is born in more than 8 pounds, then your baby can start from size 1 diapers and wear this size for about two months. 

There are babies born in under 6 lbs. If your baby is so, she or he can stay in size 1 diapers for over 3 months. 


How do I know if my baby has diaper rash?

Diaper rash is another top concern of new mothers. Although it is very common in newborns, it can make your baby pain and even lead to pustules and edema. 

The most efficient way to prevent diaper rash is to change diapers in time. Baby garbage contains irritant ingredients. If your baby wears the soiled diapers for a long time, you will put your baby in danger of diaper rash.

If you find pinkness, papules, or peeling on your baby’s ass, your baby is experiencing a diaper rash.

Changing diapers in time means there will be plenty of soiled diapers. A baby uses about 3000 diapers in the first year. Where to store the smelly diapers can be a big challenge.
