To keep your baby's bottom happy and healthy, the general rule is to check that diaper every two hours. No need for a stopwatch, just keep it in mind. And, of course, change it ASAP when it's wet or poopy.
The dreaded diaper blowout! Avoid this messy situation by making sure you're using the right-sized diaper. Too small or too big, and you might as well start planning for a clean-up. Consider getting a diaper with a pocketed waistband; it's like a secret weapon against diaper blowouts. And for the little guys, point their man parts downward to dodge leaks from the top. Crisis averted!
Diaper use varies. Newborns? Keeping them clean takes about 8 diapers a day. As they get bigger, it dwindles to about 4-5 diapers, depending on their size. Go to our Huggies® Diaper Calculator for a more personalized diaper estimate.
The monthly diaper tally – it's like keeping score in the diaper Olympics! In their first month, babies go through about 192 diapers, but some pros say it can be as high as 320 for overachievers. After that, the numbers drop as they grow. Go to our Huggies® Diaper Calculator, the MVP of diaper math, for a more exact count.
