Yea I heard one of the other mums say that there is very little difference. We are still using size 1 - babs is 9 weeks aprox 11lbs, (we bought loads of size 1 when offers were on) moving onto size 2 tomorrow, I think then size 3 is very little difference again. You go through aprox 8 nappies a day, one large pack a week so stock up when you see offers. :o0

We bought two packs of size 1 and two of size 2 (as we had no idea about sizes and weights). We used the two packs of size 1 and then went straight to size 2 as there was very little difference in size. Ignore the weights and go with your instinct - you'll know when it's time to move onto the next size....

I bought lots of newborn nappies on special offer before I had my little one. He was a big baby and never got to wear some of them, so maybe just buy a few packs as you don't know how long your baby will be wearing each stage.

Nappies are on offer at the minute in Tesco. I must stock up this weekend.

Girls I registered on, and they sent out nappy vouchers, if you're stocking up Baby4me - I'm glad you asked this question, as I was wondering the same thing too!
