My Isabella is now 2 years old! How time flies. I originally wrote this post before she was born. I am happy to say that I had ONE extra size 1 package and 2 extra size 2 packages. I am also lucky that I was able to “hand them down” to my sister who was expecting twins! Now my other sister is expecting her THIRD son – so I’ve updated this post and am happy to say she’s already done stocking up sizes 1 and 2 at 5 months along! She’s been rocking the deals!

With my oldest, I was able to stock up on diapers as low as 99¢ a jumbo pack when Eckerds went out of business and was being turned into a different store. All of their store brand products went as low as 90% off. I had all of my family members visit every Eckerd in their area to buy me diapers! I didn’t buy any diapers for about 3 years! Then we started potty training so I really did well with stocking up on diapers with her. Then we had twins and while I stocked up, we still found ourselves having to buy more diapers of certain sizes.
Disclaimer: This stock up guide is a best guess estimate. It’s a starting point. It is based on average weights, changes, etc. You might have a big baby or a small baby or a wet baby or a super dry one. Your baby might potty train at 18 months and never need sizes 4 or 5. So take this for what it is – a little getting started guide.
I am lucky that my stock pile is large enough of diapers that I haven’t HAD to buy diapers and Isabella is 2 and we’re about to potty train! I’ve just been picking them up as deals come along. So I did research (and buying diapers of course!) This is what my research has turned up:
