diapers

how closely do you follow the weight range on the box?

wolverine is just under 20lbs and is wearing 3s  (16-28lbs, Pampers)

i'm wondering for stock up purposes if it would be worthwhile to get any 4s, or just get, say 2 more boxes of 3s, figuring she'll need them for at least the next 3-4 months.

    I get the smallest size possible that they won't leak out of.  Their weight gain slows down significantly around this time.  I say stick with the 2s for a few more boxes.

    DefConn's just over 20lbs and wearing 4's because 3's started to look like thongs on him. And that's weird because he has no butt.   Besides having no butt, he's a solid kid.

    ETA: And he was leaking out a lot at night and if he had a big poo.

    huggies seem to run smaller than pampers overall.

    We were uppping sizes constantly but I grabbed 4's when there was a kickass sale but we're in 3's indefinately...
    I tink if you have a 'small' kid, they follow well.  Can't speak for 'big' kids

    DD was a chunk and still is.  We were always in a size up from the recommended weight on the box.

    This. We had to stop using Huggies fairly early on because of this.

    A is about 25lbs and wears Pampers Cruisers size 4's.

    My ILs got us a shitton of 3s but M isn't even 16lbs yet. But they seem to work. When I buy I still get 2s but have the 3s on hand (they go to daycare). When she was born she was in newborn size for a long time but we could make 1s work if we had to.

    I also agree that huggies seem to run smaller than pampers, but I've had better experiences with huggies over the last 2.5 years.  I do like Pampers Cruisers for DD1 since she's gotten into size 5s but otherwise I buy huggies.

    ETA:  I don't ever pay attention to the weight on the boxes.  I just buy the next size when it's clear we're ready for them.
