I wash every other day and find 18 or so are about good for me. I like to have a few extras so 2 dozen isn't way off.

You might be able to cut it down to 18 doing laundry every other day for a while and then every third day depending on how old your baby is. My dd is 7 months and I only have 10 right now, but I do laundry a little more often than I want to and I am new to the cloth diapering thing.

Re: How many Medium Diapers to get?

We had 19 smalls & about the same number of larges when we switched at 4 mos... I now really regret getting the larges, like medium better! & find that we only need maybe 12 to wash every three days because I change ds a lot less now! He's almost 2, but have been changing him a lot less since about 15 mos when he stopped having more then one bm a day... but you for sure don't want to be short either! I'd figure how many you need a day & multiply that by 2.5 or 3 then you'll be able to go 2.5 to 3 days! Happy diaper shopping!!

Re: How many Medium Diapers to get?

I get by on less than most people I think. I originally started with 12 mediums. I think I now have 16 pocket diapers--that's been a pretty good number for us. I do laundry usually every other day, and I haven't run out yet!

Of course, my baby is older, so I don't change him as often. He's 15 months, and just barely moved into mediums. So...

I don't think 24 is too far off. But, you could get away with less for awhile, and continue to build on your stash. That's what I'm doing!

Have fun diaper shopping!

Re: How many Medium Diapers to get?

Yikes, I have way too many diapers. Right now I have a load sitting in one of my dryers and I'm just too lazy to take them out and fold them, but I just finished washing a load and will need the dryer for those (so, that's about 32-36 diapers in the washing process) plus I have a few in the dirties and enough for my daughter to wear all day today. lol

But, for minimums, you need 3 night diapers (one to wear, two in the wash). Then for day if you wash every other day, you need 20-24 - enough to change 8+ times a day and still have enough for baby to wear while you're doing wash and for those days when you just need more. Plus, that will allow you to have a few in a diaper bag that are designated for that.

Re: How many Medium Diapers to get?

Lol I keep looking around the house seeing what I can sell on Ebay to buy more diapers. DH got tired of me sending packages with him to ship from work (he's a shipping manager) and told me if I'm going to keep Ebaying I am going to have to do the shipping thing myself. And I am.

Re: How many Medium Diapers to get?

I don't have enough yet. I have 7 bumGenius, 3 FBs, 2 fitteds and one cover - its so not enough. I can't get through two full days. I have two happy Hempies coming and three fitteds I bought off of here, and I am waiting for 4 wool soakers. I will see where I am after that. I wouldn't mind doing laundry every other day, but pretty much I have to do it daily right now to have enough to CD 24/7. If I really like using wool, I'll go w/ more of those. If I don't, I'll get more pockets.
