LOL ... of course, part of the guilt is that I don't think I will be fully satisfied until I finally score some Baybee fitteds this week

Re: How many diapers is too many?

that's nothing......don't feel guilty.

I've got about 150 diapers (fitteds, ai2s, and pockets) not counting covers and wool....for one dd, in the process of potty learning....

I don't feel one bit guilty.....

Re: How many diapers is too many?

I don't like having tons. I want to be able to use them all up before wash day (well, have a couple to wear through the washing), then wash and start over. I don't like diapers laying around not getting used. And I don't like not having storage space for them.

That said, I have (including on the way) about 35 diapers. And that's more than enough for me to CD 1 full time (my son) and 1 part time (my friend's son here from 9-6 every day). And I wash every 2-3 days, depends on how many poops we've had.

We don't vaccinate, we kept our sons intact, we use cloth diapers, we co-sleep, we extended RF, we breastfeed, but we watch too much tv and I totally dig plastic! Everyone has their issues, lol.

Re: How many diapers is too many?

I don't think theres such a thing as too much fluff! But, I do know I have more than we need. I wash every 2 days and I have enough for about every 5 days. I keep changing my favorite type of dipe, so I just keep a little of everything. I mostly use pockets and I have over 30, which is more than I need. But, I too figure a larger rotation, means less wear and tear on the dipes. I like knowing I can get by longer than I have to. If I were to get sick, I wouldn't have to get up just to wash dipes. (I don't trust dh to do it, even if I 'babysat' him while he washed them)

I don't think you're even close to too many. At last count I had over 100, and I know I've bought more since then.

Re: How many diapers is too many?

WOW, this is a great post! I have so few compared to the mammas here, it gives me grounds for my argument that I want to buy more

I have 12 PFs, 6 Kissaluvs contours (they're my nightime diaps), 6 FB that are almost outgrown, 1 bG and 2 more on the way. I *just* bought a BP today and I'm gonna be FREAKING OUT until it arrives!

We've got way more then that. Lets put it like this. I wash every 4 days sometimes,then it's three more days until I stuff pockets and I still have enough ready to use diapers that they don't all fit under the changing table
