I recommend a minimum of 18 diapers- enough to get through with a smaller baby (and washing more often) and then getting into a reasonable wash routine with an older baby.
I could totally cd full time with 18 day diapers and 4 overnight diapers (especially if I could have a dozen prefolds and a couple one size covers as back up) and could probably still wash every third night.
my dipes are still in great condition. i dont plan on buying more size small diapers. i feel what we had is plenty. we just rinsed the diapers out by hand and washed them with our normal laundry that we did daily anyway so it really wasnt any more environmentally unfriendly since we werent just washing a small load of dipes.
