I do diaper laundry just about every 3 days here. Basically I do it whenever the diaper pail is full. With a newborn it may be every couple days, but usually still every 3 - they go through more diapers, but the diapers are smaller!

I'm sure it's like riding a bike, but I still have irrational fears that I'll forget it all!

I remember feeling this same way when we were pregnant with Levi - I'd had the first 3 within 3.5yrs, but Isaac was 4 when Levi was born.
It is the same all over again... and yet, it's different too, because now you have the older kids to still deal with (not in a bad way, but school stuff and activities and whatnot) while dealing with the newbie at the same time. But you get used to it. And it's wonderful!
