Newborn diapers? Household 6 2 kids; Columbus, Georgia 17761 posts

Does anyone remember how many packs of newborn diapers you went through before your baby finished passing meconium? We should be fine with just the pack from the hospital right? We're cloth diapering, but I have zero desire to try to clean tar shit out of my prefolds.

Meconium only lasts for the first few poops.

I think it was over before we left the hospital. I don't think you would need any more than the ones form the hospital.

He was preemie, but....I think it lasted no more than 5 days for him. You should be fine with the pack from the hospital.

I think DS lasted a day or two after the hospital before it was really normal poop

A few days for us. The pack should last. :)

My ds had high biliruben so he had meconium for a while because it didn't come out right away. But I've read that it comes right out of cloth if you just do an extra rinse before you wash.

Yeah, the diapers the hospital supplies should be plenty enough.

She'd gone seedy, mustardy breastfed poop before we even left the hospital. We were there 3 days.
