Babies come in all different shapes and sizes and they all eat and drink different quantities. You may find that although your baby is still within the recommended weight range for the size, the next size up is more absorbent, which is especially important at night.
There is an overlap in sizes in the larger nappies to take into account that as babies grow, there can be a much bigger discrepancy in ages and shapes, which may mean that one 13kg baby is fine in the maxi size, but another 13kg baby needs the junior.
Years of using nappies on our own children, and of talking to our lovely customers about nappies mean that we can pretty much fit a nappy by sight! We find that the optimum weight ranges are:
|Nappy:||Size:||Optimum weight range:|
|Premature (0+)||1-3 kgs||premature birth to around 2.5 kgs|
|Newborn (1)||2-4 kgs||birth to around 3.5 kgs|
|Mini (2)||3-6 kgs||around 3.5 kgs to around 5 kgs|
|Midi (3)||5-10 kgs||from 5 kgs to just under 9 kgs|
|Maxi (4)||8-18 kgs||around 8.5 kgs to around 13 kgs|
|Junior (5)||12-22 kgs||from around 13 kgs|
|XL (6)||15-25 kgs||from around 15 kgs|
|Training Pants Junior (5)||12-20 kgs||from around 14kgs|
|Training Pants XL (6)||18 kgs +||from around 18 kgs, but depends on how chunky your little one is!|
If you’re not sure about how many newborn nappies to buy, we recommend buying a newborn deal. This has 3 packs of newborn nappies and 3 packs of mini nappies. If your newborn grows really quickly, it means that you’re not left with a heap of nappies that are too small!
We also have sample packs if you want to try a size before committing to a whole pack.
