About how many diapers does a newborn use either weekly or all together? For example, the label on Huggies for newborn says for 7-10 pounds.. how long and how many until they arent 10 pounds and need to upper the diapers to 11-16 pounds?

You can find a lot of baby stuff used- clothes, cribs, strollers, swings, etc. Check out churches in your area, some often have free items for families, tag/yard sales, friends and family members that have had children recently, and craigslist and consignment shops.

The things that will cost money are-

a car seat. Buy this new.

diapers- cloth or disposable, it's going to be an expense

food- if you are breastfeeding, you need to be sure you are eating well, if not, formula will take a good chunk of change, and when they start eating solids, that will be something to save for too.

health care and/or child care (babysitting)

You'll probably go through at LEAST 8-10 diapers a day for the first several weeks/few months. Buy in bulk. The weight on the package is a range- you can still fit a 10lb baby in a newborn diaper for a while. My first child was 9.9 and we used up our newborn diapers and then started using size one when we were done. He gained weight fast (never lost any) so by his two week checkup, he was over 10lbs, but we used up the newborn diapers and just didn't buy more in that size.

It depends on the child too. My boys were both over 24 lbs by their first birthday, but I know several two and three year olds that weigh about 24 lbs.

Thanks :) I bought 76 of them the other day on sale at walmart, and i was thinking about having a baby shower but if I don't I wanted to at least get an idea of how many I was going to use a day and the time period to see if i should buy some more or not in that size. Im only 15 and my boyrfriends 16 without a job so we're a little tight on money, should i worry about the diapers a little later and get some other stuff or?
