While I was reading through my book last week, I got to the section on diapers. It showed a formula to figure out how many diapers you'll need for baby for the first 6 weeks, since they tend to go a lot more during that time and you should be stocked up before the baby arrives. Well, the formula came out to 600 for one baby for the first 6 weeks, so of course, in my situation, I need to double that number to get my diaper amount so that equals 1,200 diapers for two babies for the first 6 weeks! I immediately ran into David and told him that we needed to go to the store right then and start buying diapers! Thank goodness we didn't do that because I spent the next day online trying to find the best deal for diapers and I'm pretty proud of what I found.
I purchased a box of 240 Pampers Swaddlers for newborns from Amazon.com for $47.50 and free shipping. That comes out to about $.19 per diaper. I thought that was a pretty amazing deal!
