How Many Diapers Does a Baby Use in a Year and what impact does it have?
Updated: Aug 23, 2021
On today post, we are going to discuss an interesting topic!
Do you know how many diapers your baby uses in his first year of life?
If you are taking your first steps into parenthood, you may be surprised at the amount of baby diapers your child will go through. During the first few days of your baby's life, you may feel like you are all thumbs as you try to diaper their tiny bottom. Don't worry! Soon you'll be able to diaper like a pro. Diapering can be a little tricky at first, though, and you may also be undecided on what type of diapers to buy.
There's no denying that new parents will change a lot of diapers in a year, but the exact number depends on the weight and age of the baby and whether the family is using cloth or disposable diapers. If you're planning for your baby's future needs or hoping to stockpile some diapers on sale, it helps to look into the statistics.
First Year: Around 2,500 Disposable Diapers
The number and size of diapers used can depend on the baby's weight. Larger babies need larger diapers and may go through them at a different rate. The average birth weight in the United States is between 5.5 and 8.8 pounds. According to research, a baby in this weight range will go through approximately 2,500 diapers in their first year of life.
So, why is this number important to our discussion? You will see once we compare the number of disposable diapers used by an infant wearing Nateen vs. an infant who wears the generic brand.
Nateen diapers are made with a highly absorbable fabric that lasts longer and therefore, prevents frequent diaper changes. Switching to Nateen can save an average of two diaper changes per day. Two may not seem like much, but let’s do the math. Two less diaper changes per day = approximately 700 diapers saved in one year! Not only is this more cost effective, but if you are a parent on a busy schedule, you can have plenty more time engaging in other activities with your little one rather than changing their diaper.
Most people think that their baby is not sleeping well because they are agitated or hungry, but it could just be that their diaper is not dry and comfortable. Nateen’s formula ensures a comfortable night’s sleep for both you and your little one. It brings only benefits for everyone!
The benefits of switching to Nateen are not only to the consumer. Nateen, as you know stands for NATURAL GREEN. Nateen has a great respect and concern for the world that we live in. We are proud to say that Nateen has up to 80% biodegradable products, and we are one of the first companies to have 100% biodegradable wet wipes in the market!
One of our top goals is to be the #1 fully biodegradable diaper company- and we are not far off from reaching this standard. We already have eco-friendly products, hypoallergenic products and almost 100% biodegradability in all our products!
We are here to make your life better!
