I would like to point at what so many mommas forget!!!! Newborns have 1 wet diaper at 1 day, 2 dipes and 2 days and then it begins to pick up between days 3 to 5. You could probley take 5 diaper to the hospital and be FINE!!!
This didn't apply to us in the least bit - just goes to show you each baby is different, eh? :LOL Let's see, I took a dozen all fleece fbs (won off ebay and saved from my 2nd child) - they were wee little newborns size . . . much smaller than the current smalls.
ANYWAY . . . I did change often. For one, I wanted the meconium off Kenny's bum as soon as he did it. Then, he was wet - did pee . . . and would pee on me as soon as he penis was exposed to cool air too.
Of course, he nursed non-stop as well.
We did cloth all the way. The nurses loved seeing what diaper color he'd have on next - we had lime green, purple, blue, white - too cute.
Just thought I'd throw another perspective on the minimal diaper usage. My mother actually took our waterproof tote home and washed them for us to bring back the next day with fresh diapers stuffed in them.
A very good momma she is!
