    Default Coupling MCN and disposables

    Just interested also to know how many disposables of each size you would buy- I am planning on going cloth but using disposables for outings & more difficult times. Not sure whether to buy bulk on the newborn disposables, or just have a smaller pack to use?

    I know you would get more value for your money with a bulk box but you may run the risk of bub growing out of them before you finish the box IYKWIM.
    I was given 3/4 of a box of newborn huggies from a friend due to this reason. But that was many years ago and now there is ebay which seems to have a good market for sposies. You could sell off what you don't use.

    Maybe instead of stocking up you could just buy them as you need them.

    i think you could safely get by with one box of NB disposables, then maybe a box of each size? i'm not sure.....

    Its hard with the NB size - you don't know how big your baby's going to be - s/he might outgrow them really quickly (?) Having said that, I used sposies pretty much full time for ages (even though I had intended to use cloth... I got lazy ) and goodness me, you go through them!

    I only used sposies in hospital, so got through quite a lot in 10 days! I slowly switched to full time cloth over a month... I used maybe 100 nappies. I didn't get newborn ones, I got the next size up, which can be used on newborns, and I still have about 20 left in case of emergency (ie DS poos his way through more than 20 nappies in 3 hours and I don't have any clean cloths left!). TBH, I find cloth easier than disposable - no sticky things to stick to DS if I forget to fold them over, no dashing to the shops becauseI forgot to buy the nappies in and you can tell exactly how much waste your child produces.

    I did the same thing, only used disposables when we were out and I didn't buy them in bulk, I had some I was given at my baby shower and then I just brought them as I needed them.
