Is my math wrong, or FuzziBunz math wrong?
 
Is my math wrong, or FuzziBunz math wrong?

12 diapers, and only washing every 3 days = only 4 diapers per day?

This is HORRIBLY misleading, or am I missing something here...

It says washing 4 days a week. Unless I'm not seeing what you mean. But that's washing every other day.

12 diapers for a year?:giggle: No way, you will go through 12 diapers in 1.5-2 days with a younger baby and in 3 days with an older toddler.

Guess I read it wrong, but yeah 12 diaper no matter how to put it will not last more than about 3 days, that's a lot of washing. I wash a few times a week and I don't have to due to an over supply of diapers..lol

Yeah I had a small stash of FB and washed every other night when we first started to cd.

Doesn't it say washing 4/week? That's every other day or more. We only use 5-7 diapers per day with DS.... I *guess* it's possible. Stretching it, though. Definitely not happening with a younger baby.

I agree I have a 2.5 year old she wears an overnight diaper for at least 12 hours.. She goes on average 2 hours during the day but naps or longer outting can sometimes push this into the 3rd hour..

Up untill about a week ago I was working with exactly 12 diapers washing every 2-3 days.. I sposied at night... I very often had to use a few extra sposies to get through..

I now have 18 and washing every 3rd day most of the time it is JUST enough but not always like today..it is 6pm I JUST changed her into her last clean diaper. I am planning on using a sposie tonight since I'm washing but she will need more than one.. and I pushed her diaper before this a bit longer than I'd ideally like just cause I knew we only had one more.. I'm actually thinking of getting a few more so I'm not so strained on wash day
Even her caculations on how many sposies comes out closer to 8 a day
2912/365= 7.97 so this is advocating changing more often with sposies than with cloth :headscratch:

The owner mentioned this on Shark Tank and I thought it was misleading then. Granted, we have gobs more diapers than we need but I would always recommend more than 12 if someone is serious about CD'ing.

I've not started yet, but most stuff I read says at least 24 with a newborn, more like 36 for comfort.
