Your question: When do you change diaper sizes?

Will size 1 diapers fit a newborn?

Although diapers are sized by weight, there is some overlap. For instance, size 1 is for infants up to 14 pounds, while size 2 is for those between 12 and 18 pounds. If your baby is 13 pounds and still fitting securely into size 1, it’s safe to stay there a little longer.

How do you know what size diaper to buy?

Diapers are sized as per the child’s weight, hence every parent needs to take the baby’s size into account first to find a perfect fit diaper for their baby.

Select the Diaper Size as per the Baby Weight.

Type of diaper Baby weight (in lbs) Baby weight(in kgs)
Large 22-36 lbs 10-16 kgs
XL 34 lbs or more 15kgs or more

At what age does a baby wear size 1 diapers?

Note:

DIAPER SIZE WEIGHT AGE RANGE
Size 1 8–14 lbs. birth–4 months
Size 2 12–18 lbs. 3–8 months
Size 3 16–28 lbs. 5–24 months
Size 4 22–37 lbs. 18–36 months

Do blowouts mean the diaper is too small?

Avoid the Dreaded Blowout

It’s every mom’s worst fear — poop all over your new baby’s body, clothes, hair, and maybe on you. Blowouts tend to happen at the back of the diaper where it is hard to create a seal. In many cases blowouts happen because of the wrong size diaper or diapers that aren’t fully snug on the baby.

Do I need to change a poopy diaper right away?

If you do hear—or smell—a poop, you’ll want to change them soon, but not necessarily immediately. A breastfed baby’s poop isn’t very irritating to the skin, so if they are sleeping soundly and you think they’re going to be up soon anyway, you can safely put it off for a little while, says Mochoruk.
