From your experience, about how long (by age) were your children in the following sized diapers:

Preemie
Newborn
Size 1
Size 2
Size 3


Just curious! Thanks in advance!

From your experience, about how long (by age) were your children in the following sized diapers:

Preemie - I never bought preemie diapers
Newborn - probably 1 month
Size 1 - probably 2 or 3 months....I know costco sells a big box of huggies that is a combo 1 and 2
Size 2 - probably until after the first year
Size 3 - until they were potty trained at 3

My twins were and still are small so sizes are kinda funky. I will say that my singleton (regular sized baby) is still in size 3 huggies at almost 3 yrs of age.

We didn't use preemie diapers. They were in newborn for about a month, size 1 for about two months, size 2 for another 2 months and now we are in size 3. They are 6 months old.

Maya is still in preemie diapers. Her birth weight was 4 lbs 8 oz and she is now over 5 lbs.
Sofia is now in newborn size diapers, she was 6 lbs 1 oz at birth and used preemie diapers for about a month.

I would have some on hand just in case!

Mine were in newborn for about 3 weeks
size 1 about a month
size 2 about a month
size 3 about a month
size 4 several months (4-5)
size 5 around 6 months
size 6 they are still in.

My boys grew really fast and are pretty big although they have slowed down a lot. They were born 4 weeks early and were 6lbs and 6lbs 11oz. They were down to 5lbs 3oz and 5lbs 13oz on day 4 but then they just shot up quickly from there. By 4 months they were around 20 and 21lbs. Even though size 3 was up to 28lbs they didn't fit into them when they were 20lbs because they were so chubby. I dont think you can really plan ahead what sizes they will be in, my DD was much slower and never got past a size 4 when she was potty trained at age 3.
