What is the bare minimum of flats for a newborn? I will be doing sposies at night and when running errands.

How many covers? Just want to make sure ill have what I need, I wasn't going to cloth at all this time and changed my mind last minute.... Like usual with me lol

Thanks

Re: How many for newborn?

I would say at least 24 and 6 covers, but that might be a lot of washing.

If I was doing flats and covers, I would probably get a stash of 36 flats and 12 covers, just to be comfortable and not pushing the limits of my stash

I'd get 30-36 flats and maybe 6-8 covers. My daughter went through a lot of diaper changes when she was a newborn, 15-18 per day.
