How many cloth nursing pads?

I used disposable nursing pads with my DS, but I am going to use cloth this time around. I have 4 pairs, but have no idea how many I am going to need. If you use cloth, how many do you have?

Depends on how often you do laundry. In the very beginning, when milk is coming in, you will go through more than normal. I plan on at least 2 pairs per day.

I used LanaCare wool pads and only need 2 pairs. That way I could use 1 pair while the other dried. They only need to be washed every 3-4wks.

I have had four pairs from the start, and it was always more than enough! I think you should be fine.

I had maybe 8-10 pairs, I guess that's more than most people? I'm kind of slow with the laundry though
