Subscribers often ask us how many days should be set between nappies or diapers carton orders. The answer does depend a lot on your baby as some ‘go’ more frequently than others! You might find it useful to know what the typical number of nappies or diapers used per day in each size range is, and thus we can work out how many days is typical between orders, as a benchmark.
The younger the baby, the more times they will need to go, so even within each size there is variance depending on if they are at the lower end or the higher end of the weight range.
Also keep in mind some babies have unique shapes (eg bigger or smaller waist, legs and bums) and so the weight range indicated for each size is only ever a guide.
Size 1 Newborn < 3kg or < 6 lbs – 8 to 12 per day
Size 2 Infant 2-6 kg or 4-13 lbs – 8 to 10 per day
Size 3 Crawler 6-11 kg or 13-24 lbs – 6 to 7 per day
Size 4 Toddler 10-15 kg or 22-33 lbs – 5 to 7 per day
Size 5 Walker 14-18 kg or 31-40 lbs – 4 to 6 per day
Size 6 Junior > 17 kg or > 37 lbs – 4 to 6 per day
Later this year we hope to have a full size range, but for now we offer Size 3, 4 and 5. The typical number of days between orders for these 3 sizes can be calculated as follows:
Size 3 Crawler – 168 units per carton / 6-7 per day = 24 – 28 days between orders
Size 4 Toddler – 150 units per carton / 5-7 per day = 21 – 30 days between orders
Size 5 Walker – 138 units per carton / 4-6 per day = 23 – 34 days between orders
Our default settings are pretty conservative overall at 30 days so we recommend starting with that and adjusting if need be as you work out what your baby requires. Our fully flexible subscription allows you to amend the settings after logging in and heading to the My Store page.
We hope the above guide is useful for you as the last thing a busy parent needs is to be pulling out a calculator and researching this!
