h__lo all!! once you open the pack of diapers, how long can they keep once opened and just sitting on the change table or in the diaper bag? I havnt had my LO yet but I want to pack the diaper bag and not have to take the whole thing with me.. but im not due until february so I dont want to open them and have them go bad or something, which they probably dont lol im maybe just to concerened! thanks

As far as I know diapers don't go "bad"...if you're due in Feb right now is a good time to get the hospital or diaper bag packed. I keep diapers in my ds's hanging diaper storage bag for sometimes more than 2 months just because I pack it full.

Yes i agree with DDT, i don't think there is a time limit but for most hospitals you will not need any diapers, in fact you will probably be bringing some home with you.

hey thanks for the replies so quickly! Unfortunately my hospital doesnt supply diapers.. which I think is crazy but I guess there cutting back!

also, say I'm there for the 2 days, any idea how many I should bring?

That sucks that your hospital doesn't provide diapers. The one where I had my DD had diapers and everything we needed. They gave everything too that was in DD's ba__sinet. If I were you I would just bring the entire pack. They go through a lot of diaper change a day, maybe like 12 or so. Just bring the whole pack and make sure to bring wipes too.

yeah,diapers shouldn't go bad,i'd be more worried about the wipes but those should be good a few months or so,so you're good there to. I'd bring the pack of diapers to. But newborns don't go through that many diaper changes a day, i think around day 4 or 5 ( i forget) they start having regular wet diapers(6 + a day). Unless you say that they go through 12 a day because you formula fed the first days,i b___stfed every 2 hrs and she didn't have a lot of wet diapers at first.

they didn't provide diapers for us either! But they gave us TONS of other stuff,even ready to feed bottles because they made me supplement a little ( i miss them,but their real expensive here!) and free sample packs of info,coupons etc. with diapers in them.i think i had about a billion huggies coupons but it was a shame couldn't use them because sensitive skin runs in the family and huggies irritated her!!

This may not be normal... but my daughter went through 10-12 diapers her first 2 days of life... i guess she jus wanted to get everything out of her asap... because she had 10 poopy diapers each day the first 2 days then it slowed down... So i hope that helps a little

Bring LOTS of diapers. My dd went through so many a day!!! I'd just bring the whole pack.

I thought all hospitals provided diapers. My hospital gave us tons of nb size swaddlers. Anyway, I would pack a small pack of nb diapers and no diapers don't go bad. Good luck to you February is just around the corner.

They go through 10-12 diapers the first few wks of life.
