The hospital we were at sent us home with 5 packages of NB diapers and a package of size 1. Baby was in NB for about a month and we never needed to buy any :)

I think NB diapers are the cheapest size (swaddlers).

We have one small (probably in the range of 30) package of newborn, the hospital for some reason only put size 1 in our baby's bassinet cabinet thing. We can probably get away with switching to size 1 whenever we finish the newborn package, but another ~30 pack or 2 would probably be fine too.

If you are still in the hospital, empty the bassinet drawer after every shift and the new nurse will see that the diapers have run out and restock.  You cna also tell them that the size 1 are too big, they will give you NB sign instead.

When your leaving ask them if they can send you home with some extra diapers and formula samples..

Yes, the nurses might catch on and they are happy to help out. Pampers gives the hospital free diapers to encourage patients to buy their brand..

I posted well after we left, and yes, we cleared out the bassinet drawers a few times (not our first rodeo). However, according to my wife at least, they don't stock size N at this hospital, only preemie and 1. Not sure why this would be and idn't think to confirm, but she said she asked.

I think we should all post the price per diaper. I buy Luvs in Shoprite, when they're on sale for 16.99 for the big box (every few weeks). Currently I'm buying size 6, 66 per box, =,
0.257 per diaper
-10% (baby bucks) =
0.231 PD.
I believe size 4 has 80 per box =
0.191 PD!!
Anybody beat that?

Also, there is a $1 coupon to clip for Pampers diapers.

Total was $16.75. $.087 a diaper! Thanks.

Gotta love it when you get excited about buying diapers!

So what do they expect you to put on your kid? Couldn't you tell them to refil the diapers?

most people don't choose the hostipal based on the amount of free diapers they get.  ;)

No, but a better hospital may have a more attentive staff who take care of every detail down to the diapers
