A New Parent's Guide to Estimating How Many Diapers You Need and What They'll Cost

Throughout their first few years of life, your baby will poop and pee pretty much all day long. The sheer amount of soiled diapers can be overwhelming to new parents—and cost several hundred dollars annually. Stocking up can save you money in the long run, but if you're new to parenthood, you're probably wondering a few things.

First being, "Um, how many diapers does a baby go through in a day?" Second, "how many diapers should I buy at once?" The exact answers are hard to pinpoint for three reasons:

  1. On average, newborns go through about eight-12 diapers per day. But each infant is different so you'll have to learn as you go how predict how much your newborn will need changing.
  2. Diaper sizes are based on weight instead of age. Each baby grows at a different rate, so it's nearly impossible to predict which sizes they'll need at 3 months old, 18 months old, etc.
  3. Diaper demands adjust as babies grow up. Your child will need the most diapers during the newborn stage. By the time they reach potty training age, they may only need four or five daily diapers.

That said, if parents want to estimate how many diapers they need, it's best to break everything down by size.  Most manufacturers create diapers in "Newborn" size (10 pounds and under) to size 6 (35 pounds and over). Some brands, like Huggies and Pampers, also make "Preemie" diapers for babies less than 6 pounds, while others offer size 7 diapers for toddlers 41 pounds and over. 

As with most things, you can save money by buying diapers in bulk. "Boxes" contain more diapers than "packs"—for example, a size 1 pack usually has 40 diapers, while a size 1 box contains about 164 diapers. Boxes usually have a lower price per diaper, but do your research and budget accordingly.

Diaper Size Buying Guide

Here's a size guide to estimate how many diapers you'll need—but remember to take it with a grain of salt, since every baby is different. Also note that as diaper sizes increase, you'll generally get fewer diapers per box. For example, you can expect to get 164 diapers in a size 1 box, but only 136 diapers in a size 3 box. 

Premie (6 pounds and under): Generally, only babies born prematurely need this diaper size. There's no way to predict whether your baby will be born early—and what size they will be—so plan to purchase these diapers as needed.

Newborn (10 pounds and under): Young babies grow fast, so they'll graduate from newborn diapers after a few weeks. Plan to go through about eight-12 diapers per day, which equates to about one or two boxes (assuming each box contains 140 diapers). Note that many parents receive newborn diapers from the hospital too.

Size 1 (8 -14 pounds): Most babies need size 1 diapers until 4 months of age, and they'll soil about 8-10 diapers each day. Therefore parents can plan to buy around three to four boxes, based on 164 diapers per box.

Size 2 (12-18 pounds): These are commonly used by babies 3 to 8 months old, who produce eight or nine dirty diapers each day. Expect to buy anywhere from three to five boxes, with 142 diapers in each one.

Size 3 (16-28 pounds): Now's the time when stockpiling starts to come in handy. A wide range of babies need size 3 diapers—in fact, they're commonly used by infants from 5 months to 24 months old. At this age, babies go through six or seven diapers each day, so you'll need about seven or eight boxes, assuming there's 136 diapers per box.

Size 4 (22-37 pounds): Size 4 diapers usually cater to babies between 18 months and 36 months, who soil about five to seven diapers each day. Because many babies don't need size 4 diapers until they're almost 2, many parents choose not to stock up in the early days. Expect to use anywhere from two to five boxes of these.

Size 5 (27-35 pounds): Size 5 diapers fit toddlers 27 pounds and over; kids generally reach this weight around 3 years old. Plan to buy and use these diapers as needed.

Size 6 (35 pounds and over): As the biggest size many brands make, size 6 diapers are usually reserved for those older than 4. Plan to buy and use these diapers as needed.

Size 7 (41 pounds and over): Some brands, such as Pampers, also make size 7 diapers for older toddlers. Once your child reaches 41 pounds, gauge the situation and buy these diapers accordingly. 

Here are some important things to keep in mind when estimating how many diapers you'll need:

  • Most parents have a preferred diaper brand, and figuring it out takes some trial and error. You might want to hold off on stockpiling until you test a few different options.
  • Some diapers brands run smaller than others. If you're worried about fit, read product reviews or ask other parents about their experience.
  • Some baby weights overlap between different diaper sizes. If you don't know which size to buy, consider your little one's body structure. A chubbier baby may need the bigger option, while a longer, skinnier baby might fit best in the smaller one. Also note that smaller sizes are generally cheaper.

How Much Do Diapers Cost?

Disposable diapers aren't cheap. And while the cost depends on many factors, including brand and package size, parents can expect to shell out a sizable sum over the years. 

Here's a general breakdown: The average diaper costs anywhere from $0.20 to $0.30. Assuming your baby uses 2,500–3,000 diapers in their first year of life, you can expect to spend about $500-$900 on an annual supply. This doesn't count the cost of other diapering supplies, such as wipes and a changing table. Buying eco-friendly products also raises the price by a few hundred dollars.

Of course, there are plenty of ways to save money on diapers. Try using coupons, finding discounts online, buying in bulk, stockpiling whenever you see diapers at a low price, and testing out lower price options. Some parents also believe that cloth diapers save money, but it's more work to wash the diapers after each use (or use a diapering service). You can learn more about cloth diapers here.


Diapers are a huge expense for any new parent. That’s why we tested the top two brands – Huggies and Pampers – to help you get the most bang for your buck. After our thorough testing, we found that Pampers Baby Dry were the best daytime diapers, while Huggies OverNites were the best night time diapers.

There you are, a brand new parent with a newborn on your hip, staring at a towering wall of endless diaper options. Do you go with the more expensive and reputable brand, or get more bang for your buck with a store brand? Which one best protects against diaper blow outs (because sooner or later, it WILL happen)? Will this brand last all night without leaking? Do I really need the wetness indicator?

Whether you are a first time parent, an experienced parent of many, or somewhere in between, you know how intimidating it can be to choose the diaper that you and your baby will be satisfied with. What works for one child may not be the best choice for another. Your diaper preference may even change as your child changes. It can be easy to get lost in the craziness, but lucky for you, we are here to make this process a little easier. We put two of the top diaper brands to the test and are here to report our results. Which diaper will rise to challenge?

Why Huggies and Pampers?

Pampers and Huggies are the two best diaper brands that parents are buying these days. With each, you are sure to find the right fit for your baby through their newborn, infant, and toddler years.

To test which was best, we chose two lines of diapers from each brand to compare. In our first match, we rivaled Huggies Little Movers against Pampers Baby-Dry. In the heavyweight division, Huggies OverNites went head to head with Pampers Swaddlers Overnights.

Why did we choose these two brands? They are by far the most popular and recognizable diaper brands today. If you watch television at all, odds are you have seen countless commercials for both of these brands. Pampers boasts that they are the number one brand of diapers used by hospitals while Huggies declares they are the fastest growing brand being used in hospitals. It is easy to see that Huggies and Pampers are currently dominating the diaper industry.

First Impressions

Diaper Box

Our first impressions of these two diaper brands came in the store as we were walking down the diaper aisle. A lot of factors go into the first impression of a diaper brand: the color, the font, the image used on the box, as well as the price of the diapers, all contributed to our overall impression of the diaper and likelihood of us buying that brand.

Pampers diapers come in boxes that are soft yellow and green and feature cute, cuddly babies on the sides. In stark contrast, Huggies boxes are a vibrant red color with pictures of babies and toddlers being active. If you’re undecided on diaper brands, it is easy to see how parents of newborns would be drawn to Pampers’ soft, calming boxes.

Huggies little movers vs Pampers baby dry


Which is more expensive Pampers or Huggies?

Another important quality to consider is the price of the diapers. A package of sixteen Huggies Little Movers diapers cost $8.96, meaning that each diaper cost 56 cents each. Pampers Baby-Dry cost $8.97 for a package of seventeen, which puts each diaper at 53 cents each. However, as you get into the bigger boxes, Huggies becomes the more cost efficient buy (but just barely).

When comparing the price of overnight diapers, Huggies rose above Pampers in the competition. A 48 count of Huggies OverNites cost $24.27 (51 cents each), while Pampers Swaddlers Overnights cost $24.94 for 42 diapers (60 cents each). For both brands, there is only one option for how many diapers you get in a box. We also noticed that as the diaper size went up, you get less diapers in the box (for the same price).

Appearance and Material Quality


Both lines of Pampers diapers were made of a very soft material that you would not think twice about putting on your baby’s skin. Its high back and wide legs also provided more physical coverage. The side tabs used to hold the diaper together were extremely stretchy but also ripped fairly easy.


The material of the Huggies brand of diapers was not as soft as the Pampers, but still felt like it was a good quality. Overall, the diaper felt thick and sturdy, like it could withstand anything a baby could put it through. The waistband and legs provided a fit that was snugger as they were more stretchy and contoured to the baby.

Huggies overnights vs pampers swaddlers

Both diaper brands have comparable features. Wetness indicators, those yellow lines in the middle of the diaper that turn blue when your baby has peed, seem to be standard on most diapers. Huggies and Pampers are no exception.

Huggies and Pampers both boast blanket-like softness, hours of protection, and comfort.

Pampers Baby-Dry and Pampers Overnights

The coverage on both of these diapers is probably their best feature. The front and back of this diaper comes up farther than its competitor. Its generous coverage will keep your baby dry and leak free all night.

Huggies Little Movers

One small feature that we found particularly charming is that Huggies labels every single one of their diapers so that there is no confusion as to what size and type of diaper you are using. This may not seem like a big deal, but when you have multiple brands, or even different types of the same brand, it is nice to be able to easily identify exactly what diaper it is.

We absolutely love the contoured legs, double grip strips, wetness indicator, and stretchy waistband of Huggies Little Movers. If you have a baby on the move, these are the diapers for you! Your baby can move all around and nothing is going to escape this diaper. The double grip strips keep the diaper securely fastened so you don’t have to stress. And the best part? With the wetness indicator, you don’t have to stop their fun to check for a wet diaper!

Huggies OverNites

Huggies OverNites come with all the great features of Little Movers but with added absorbency. The same features that keep your baby secure during the day also gets the job done through even the longest and wettest nights.

How We Tested

As any parent knows, the true quality of a diaper lies in its absorbency. A diaper can look nice and have cute designs on it, but if it doesn’t hold up to what your baby puts it through, it’s not worth it.

We pushed these diapers absorbency to their limits using various tests to see which one would come out on top. A blot test was used to determine how quickly each diaper absorbed wetness. We also tested how much liquid each diaper could hold before leaking, as well as how the diaper held up to the strenuous activity of a very active toddler.

The Blot Test

The blot test was performed on the Pampers Baby-Dry and Huggies Little Movers to see how quickly each diaper absorbed the liquid that was poured into it. To perform this test, we placed the diapers flat on a table and poured a specific amount of water into each diaper. After sixty seconds we blotted each diaper with a single paper towel and measured how much water was transferred to the paper towel. We did this in three stages: in the first stage we poured 5ml of water, then 10ml, and finally 20ml of water.

As expected, there was no water transfer after the first stage with 5ml poured. In stage two, each diaper had a slight transfer. Pampers Baby-Dry and Huggies Little Movers both transferred about a half-dollar sized amount of water onto the paper towel. The final stage of the blot test, however, showed the most distinction between diapers. When we poured 20ml of water into each diaper, the Huggies diaper transferred an adult palm-sized amount of water while the Pampers diaper transferred about half of that amount.

WINNER: Pampers

The Absorbency Test

Which diaper is the most absorbent?

Once your little one (finally) starts sleeping through the night, the last thing you want to do is have to get up and change their diaper in the middle of the night because they’ve leaked through. We tested the Pampers Swaddlers Overnights and the Huggies OverNites by pouring water into them until they reach the point they leak.

We placed each diaper flat on the counter and began pouring water into the diaper one cup at a time. The diapers stayed neck-and-neck through the first two cups of water poured. When the third cup of water was poured into both, however, the Pampers Swaddlers Overnights diaper became very soggy and looked like it was going to leak (but it didn’t!). The Huggies OverNites were still holding strong after three cups of water.

As soon as we poured the next cup of water into the Pampers Swaddlers Overnights diaper, we knew it was over. About halfway through pouring the fourth cup, the water began to puddle along the edges of the diaper and eventually spilled over the edge onto the table. Though extremely soggy, the Huggies OverNites diaper held its ground and did not leak even after four cups of water had been poured into it. It made it through another half cup of water before it finally gave in to leakage. Pretty impressive!

WINNER: Huggies OverNites

  • Most absorbent HUGGIES diapers, with Double Leak Guard for up to 12 hours of protection
  • SnugFit waistband and Double Grip Strips for a secure fit, plus a wetness indicator stripe that changes color when diaper is wet


While not as scientific, we also factored in our observations into our evaluation. We wanted to see how each diaper would hold up against the ultimate test: a toddler’s full night time bladder.

The diaper was placed on the toddler no more than five minutes before bedtime (usually around 8:00 p.m.) and was not removed until the family was officially up for the day (around 5:00 a.m.). Each diaper was tested and observed for five nights in a row.

Every morning the diaper was checked for fullness and leaks. Pampers Swaddlers Overnights leaked three out of five nights, while the Huggies OverNites never leaked. Furthermore, Pampers Swaddlers Overnights seemed to be more prone to leaking if the diaper was compressed in any way. For example, after being picked up out of bed and carried on a hip, Pampers Swaddlers Overnights completely soaked through our shirt.

WINNER: Huggies OverNites

The Best Diaper Brand

The Best Day Time Diaper

Which diaper is best for daytime?

This one was a close match. While they both showed great effort, the Pampers Baby-Dry came out on top. It had more physical coverage and proved that it keeps babies drier longer than its Huggies competitor. For an active baby during the daytime, the Pampers Baby-Dry were the best!

Which diaper is best for overnight?

Although the Pampers Overnights had more physical coverage, the Huggies OverNites proved to be the better overnight diaper. Its absorbency and lack of leakage places it far above the Pampers Swaddlers Overnights. We contribute the lack of leaks to the contoured legs and snug fit of the waistband.

Tips for Your Diapering Adventures

Try Out Different Brands

Register for a lot of different types of diapers! There is no way to know what diaper you or your baby will prefer. Ask for different brands so you can try them all (and build up your diaper stash!)

Diaper Positioning is Important

For those of you with a little boy, point his boy-parts down before closing his diaper. This will prevent him from peeing out of the top of his diaper and needing (yet another) wardrobe change.

Size Up for Overnight

If you don’t want to spend money for diapers made specifically for overnight, just use a size bigger of your regular diaper for night time. The extra room in the diaper will absorb the extra pee and keep your baby drier.

A Change of Clothes is Necessary

Always (always) carry multiple changes of clothes. No diaper is 100% blowout proof and you would hate to be out to dinner without something to change your baby into (people tend to look at you weird if your baby isn’t clothed in public)

Keep Plastic Bags with You

Plastic bags are your friend! Keep some stashed in your diaper bag, home, and car for those times when your little one goes #2 (nobody wants to smell that) or for when their clothes get wet or dirty in public. The uses for plastic bags are endless!

Keep Your Diaper Bag Fully Stocked

Make it a habit to restock diapers, wipes, and at least one change of clothes when you return home. That way, you don’t have to think about it when you’re walking out the door to leave. Trust us, there is nothing worse than being out in public and realizing you are out of diapers (not that we’ve ever done that….)

Final Thoughts

While finding the right diaper is an important decision to make, it should not be the most stressful part of raising a baby. There is a plethora of research and reviews out there to help you in making this decision.

There is a reason that these two brands are the top two diaper brands. As we have shown in our research, each diaper has its own strengths and weaknesses. The only way to truly know which diaper works best for you and your baby’s individual needs it to try them and see!

Best Diapers for Babies Under 2

What to Expect selects products based on independent research and suggestions from our community of millions of parents; learn more about our review process. We may earn commissions from shopping links.

There are many items on a baby registry that are in the “nice to have” or “make your life easier” category, but diapers … diapers fall on the “absolutely essential” list.

Not only do you use them several times a day — newborns can go through 12 (!) in a single day — but you’ll also need to keep diapers in stock for years to come.

With so many different diaper brands out there, choosing the best diapers for your little one can be difficult. Here's how to find the best diaper for your family, plus parent-approved diaper brands we love.

Types of baby diapers

Before you shop for diapers, the first factor to consider is what type best suits your lifestyle.

Cloth diapers

While cloth diapers can be more work — both to get on baby and in extra loads of laundry — they can save you thousands of dollars over the course of the diapering years. (And if you’re planning on using them for more than one baby, those savings can double or triple.)

Eco-minded parents will appreciate that cloth diapers are reusable. When you consider that 20 billion disposable diapers are added to landfills each year, that’s a big incentive.

Disposable diapers

Disposable diapers are the definition of convenience. Not only do they go on easily, but as long as you’re using the right size, they’re pretty much guaranteed to fit, which means fewer leaks. Today’s diapers are so absorbent that babies can often sleep through the night even when they’re wet without feeling discomfort. They’re also easy to use when traveling since you just toss them when you’re done.

That leads us to one of the biggest cons, the aforementioned space disposable diapers take up in landfills. They also cost more over time than cloth diapers.

Organic diapers

An “organic” label can make new parents feel reassured, especially with something you put on baby’s bum. But when it comes to disposable diapers, there’s no brand that is 100 percent organic. What you will find is that certain brands use eco-friendly materials, such as wood pulp derived from sustainable trees, and production methods that are better for the earth.

Most diapers, whether they're labeled eco-friendly or not, no longer use latex or chlorine to bleach the wood pulp, a process that was phased out in the '90s.

Choosing the best diaper for your baby

As with many baby items, you may want to buy a few different diaper brands at first to see which works best for your cutie. Once you know your favorite, consider signing up for a subscription delivery service to take advantage of the substantial discounts they offer.

Here are a few additional factors to consider when shopping for baby diapers:

  • Reusable and adjustable tabs: These are great when you're trying to quickly peek to see if baby is wet. They can also help you get the best fit.
  • Wetness indicator: These are lines that change colors when baby is wet. They’re handy to have, especially in those first few weeks when you’re still learning baby’s cues.
  • Pocketed waistband: These pockets on the back panel of the diaper help keep poop contained. If you routinely have issues with blowouts, they can be a lifesaver.
  • Impact on the environment: Eco-minded parents may choose a diaper made in the most earth-friendly way possible.
  • Diaper size: Correct diaper fit is important for baby’s comfort — too tight, and the elasticized leg openings can irritate her skin, but one that’s too large can lead to leaks. Diaper packaging will make recommendations based on your baby’s weight, but feel free to size up or down as needed until you get a fit that is comfortable for your baby and minimizes leaks.

How we made our picks for the best diapers for babies under 2

When creating this list, we factored in a combination of our editor’s personal experiences with the various diaper brands as well as feedback from members of the What to Expect community.

If you lie awake in bed at night worrying about the toll that disposable diapers are taking on the planet, you’ll feel better about ordering these diapers for your babe. These diapers are eco-friendly, all-natural and made from bamboo — no harsh chemicals like chlorine, fragrance, latex and ink used whatsoever. But what makes them so unique is that they are compostable. Their Redyper program offers you bags, boxes, and even prepaid shipping labels at an added charge. The only thing left for parents to do is pack up those dirty diapers up and send them back to be professionally composted. Also, Dyper purchases carbon offsets with every single order on behalf of the customer — which is a huge plus.

Softest Diaper


Best Diapers - Coterie
Buying Options:

Pros:Eco-friendly, sophisticated design, super absorbent, subscription options

Why We Love It

One of the first things parents notice about the Coterie disposable diapers is how incredibly soft they are — they almost feel like fabric! But there’s more to them than just that — they’re nontoxic and claim to absorb 25 times their weight. For those parents who can look past their rather eye-popping price tag, they are about as high-end as a diaper can get, which is important considering these things spend a lot of time wrapped around your baby’s precious bottom. The diapers, which are made from sustainable ingredients and contain no fragrances or dyes — have a very simple white design free from characters or illustrations.
