Re: How many prefolds/flats do I need?

I'd pretty much do this.

3 dozen for newborn and 2 dozen for toddler= prefolds


1 dozen small flats
1 dozen large flats

*** if you love flats, I'd reverse the numbers for prefolds vs flats***

I haven't diapered 2 at the same time... but think I'd have to do every other day washing just based on my FL. I'd use the flats when I felt like it and to boost todder night and nap diapers. I also use smaller prefolds to beef up my toddler diapers... now I'm moving to flats for that (and have always used doublers)
