# of diapers for a newborn it is not as if I've never cloth diapered a newborn...I did cloth for my dd since she was a week or two that number 2 is on the way, I've started to buy my dipes and I'm wondering how many is too many??

I was thinking I'd like to do laundry about every other day. I'll have only 1 diaper pail, so both my older DD's diapers and Baby#2's diapers would go in it. So..I'm guessing it would be full, at least every other day if not more frequently...

I have 6 used Kissluv 0's from my DD
2 pockets
1 XS Motherease Sandy's (new)
24 Brand New, never washed Kissluv 0's from the outlet
at least a dozen preemie prefolds, though, I don't plan on using them unless I was desperate...I really preferred the fitteds.
12 KL boosters plus 3 used inserts about the same size

I'd like to but more XS Motherease Sandy's because I think the new baby will get more wear out of them than the KL0's... I sell a dozen of my new KL0's and just buy another dozen XS Sandys? Or keep the KL0's and also buy another dozen sandys??

Any advice? This pregnant mama can't make a decision at the moment! :lostit:

I have about 22-24 pockets and wash every other day with a baby that is 2 weeks old today. I also have a bunch of prefolds, but the covers I have don't quite fit. I also have a 22month old in diapers as well so I have to do laundry every other night because the pail gets full. We also have 11 fitteds but they are too bulky for us and the covers don't fit well so we don't really use them.

Oh a snappied premie prefold is an awesome fit for my DD2 but I just don't have covers that fit her well right now or I would probably use those more and she is probably around 9 lbs right now.

I had 24 for Ben and would have really liked 30. I think anything much over 30 would be overkill since you're going to be washing regularly.
