Re: Mamma's who work outside the home....
I wash every three days or so. I pack up 5 diapers a day into a wetbag for him. I use a combo of AIOs and pockets. I stuff pockets/fold AIO's at night after he goes to bed a couple times a week.
My wash routine is a warm soak, a hot wash and an additional cold rince. I hang dry the shells and toss the rest in the dryer. I leave them in there until ready to fold.
