How many prefolds?

OK, I know it's been asked before, LOL. But let's see what ya'll think about this. How many prefolds would I need for TWO babies in order to wash every second or third day? I have a whole bunch of preemie prefolds in a basket that I haven't counted - I will in a few minutes so I know how many I have. I'm thinking I'll need to order another dozen at least. We do have at least 20 fitteds sitting in a drawer for them also, so we are using something other than prefolds. We also have 4 AIOs and a couple pockets.
My next question is: should I still get more preemies? We're guessing they'll both be close to 7 lbs if they're born soon, bigger if it'll be awhile. I do figure they'll lose weight in the beginning with bfing, but should I just skip buying more preemies and go straight to infant to save myself the money in the long run? I do have about 5-10 infant ones in the closet as well.
OK, thanks for reading all that, LOL - and any input.

I think infants are fine, maybe just get 1 dozen preemie and then get more if you need them? I'd have gosh, as least 4 dozen to wash every other day they go a lot when they are tiny. Get them from they have amazing pf prices.

Re: How many prefolds?

I'd plan on each babe going through 18 dipes a day. So I'd say try and get 6 dozen. I'd go with infants. If they're too big in the beginning you can fold the excess down. I second too.
