# of Prefolds and Covers Needed

If you are primarily using prefolds and covers how many do you need (to wash about every other day) for a toddler? I just started cding again and I have a 20 month old. I decided for simplicity I would use prefolds and covers, but reading the threads on here are making me want to purchase some MEOS too . Anyway I have 17 prefolds and 3 covers for now. If I could just sell the 3 monkey doodlez I have I would buy a few MEOS to try . Thanks in advance

Agreed. My baby is a little younger, but that's about what we use: 2 dozen pfs and 6 covers.

You might find that you're fine with the number of prefolds (although picking up a few extra wouldn't hurt), but I'd get another cover or two.

We have 2 dozen pf and 4 med covers + 2 large covers (that we use for the doubled pf overnight). We do laundry every other day.

We also have 13 bgos oc aio's for daycare, so we actually could wash every 3 days instead, but we choose not to....We like the pfs.

Are you doing mostly prefolds right now? How are you managing with 17? Do you find that you run out or do you have enough?
