There is no way a pack of 180 sposies would last me a month if I were full-time diapering with them. My son poops at least 3 times a day, too...but I have not been concerned because they are ploppable and not like diarrhea (sorry if this is TMI).

As it is now, I use sposies only when he has a rash, or if we are out of the house all day and I'd have to carry a poopy in my bag for 6+ hours....and 1 box has lasted me three months already and still half is left. But DS swamps those .....

How many diapers is normal for 9 months?

I thought the SAME thing when I read that. No way would that work for my baby. Just another reason I love cloth. Maybe when they are older... of course by then you are getting less sposies per box but the price is staying the same so I don't think it would be cheaper for us.

We sometimes change every hour on the hour. Especially during teething rash time. I would say the minmum is 8 diapers a day. Have gone through as much as 12. Yes for my 9 month old.
