Hoping you can help as I'm soooo confused. There are three sizes of Pampers new born nappies but the sizes don't seem to be that different. How do you know when to move from size 1 to 2 to 3? Or is it obvious when you need to move onto the next size? Sorry this is a really stupid question but we've bought a few packs of sizes 1 and 2 and I'm not really sure what we need.

You will probably use size 1 to start with, for how long will depend on how big your baby is. Orla is 14 weeks and I now know that we need to move out of the size 2 nappies as we have had 3 poo leakages in the last 2 days ... that's normally a fairly good indicator. That or they start to feel a bit snug on baby.

Same as JB here. Generally if they are leaking they aren't right. We used 1s for a few weeks, 2s for a few months. I would probably stick with a few in each size as you say and shop as and when needed. We also knew that we needed to moved when the belly straps no longer met and were getting closer to hips than middle of the nappy.

What JB said. Chances are you will need size one to start. If you start to get leaks or feel the nappy is a but tight then time to move up a size.
I wouldn't buy too many pack before the baby is here though. You might find a certain brand doesn't suit your baby and need to buy different ones.

Thanks for the advice ladies, that's really helpful. I think we are going to stick with what we've got now. Poo leakages sound lovely :) x

It's not a stupid question, they confused the hell out of me...

Aha thanks Mrs B. Realy quite glad I'm not the only one.

Poo leakages are great - pick yourself up a tub of Vanish!! Nappies also have weight guidelines which kind of help too although i always find i have to go up a size before the maximum weight. Maybe my kids have big bottoms
