We used preemie diapers for the first month. The cheapest place to buy them around here is walmart. They actually have the cheapest and best selection of preemie clothes. There was 20 in pack and used almost the whole pack each day (changing 8-10 times per day). We used about 126 diapers a week at first.

We wore preemie diapers for about 2wks, my boys were 5lbs 5oz and 5lbs 13oz. I think we bought a couple of packages and got several from the hospital. We budgeted 16-20 diapers a day.

We got a ton of diapers from the hospital We only used package or two of the premie sized and then moved to newborn. Mine we 5 12 and 5 5 when they were born. They were long though so the premie didn't cover their little but cracks very well. I have no idea how many we went through in a day. It's all a blur.

I would caution you on buying too many early on. You never know which brand will fit or if they'll have a reaction. We had a bunch of the green diapers and my kids reacted and got horrible rashes from a couple of the brands. Pampers fit them well and first and then we had to move onto huggies for a while and then to Target brand, then back to pampers etc. I'm glad we didn't have too much of a stockpile or we would have had a lot of useless diapers.

I used the preemie they sent me home with from the hospital, but preferred the NB because they held more. For the first few months while they were BF'd we went through about 20 a day. Now at 6 months we are down to 10 a day and have been fow awhile. I agree about buying too many diapers because you never know which brands will work. I took the chance and bought all my diapers beforehand and they were fine in Pampers. I used swaddlers NB and sz 1 and then moved to baby dry. I buy mine through Amazon and am a member of Amazon Mom and get 30% off my diapers and there are tons of coupons in mags that you can stack to get another 20% off so that makes it 50% off. Also with Amazon there is 365 day free returns so if you order too many of a size or don't like the brand you can return for a full refund and they pay to ship back.

We used newborn diapers for about the first 3 months, then size 1 for about 2 months, then size 2 for about 4 months and we are now in size 3's at 15months of age.

My girls were born @ 31weeks.

consider cloth -- we c/d the twins here and its so easy! spend about $400 once for enough to last from nb size to potty trained. they do use sposie once in a while but about 90+ % of the time they are in cloth.

ETA: we bought about 24 bum genius 3.0 one size and they are still using them now at 20+ pounds each and 14 months old.
