The only dipes I don't use regularly are the prefolds. I use everything else regularly. With the number of dipes we have, she probably wears each fitted about twice a week, pockets once a week and AIOs 1-2 times.

Re: # of diapers you have compared to # you use.

With my first...

I didn't start CDing until she was about 6 months old and well into mediums. I have lots of onesized (cuddlebuns) that were used maybe once but can't seem to part with. And have WAY WAY too many Larges. I think I could go 2wks without washing. I bought and bought when deals came up and traded sewing for diapers etc....got a bit out of control. When I went on the wagon, so to speak, I used about 75% of what I had and boxed the rest up for baby #2 (who better be a girl bc it's all pink and flowers and fairy's...hahahha) I don't think my SO would like a boy dresses in pink diapers. HA!

Re: # of diapers you have compared to # you use.

umm I have somewhere in the range of 40 pockets/AIO/AI2s... and 2 dozen prefolds and wool... I *use* probably 8 in one day. I wash every other. I have so many because DH likes some of them and I just like variety. LOL. Some are for my twins, too (nighttime), so that's another 2 per day.

Re: # of diapers you have compared to # you use.

I eventually use all mine I rotate them I could actually have about 1/3 of what I do now and be fine. I have no problem with washing everyday, I just got out of control with buying. Honestly, I love my pf's more than anything. It's just hard to get rid of things when it all works for you, but you know you don't really need it.

We have 42 here right now, and I think over 20 something on the way...
I think right now we're only using about 15 of those

I use about 3/4 of them, but I know dh puts different ones on than I do, so ds ends up wearing almost all of them. The ones he doesn't wear I'm going to sell though.

I have way more medium fitteds and infant prefolds for my 10mo than I have for my two. I would say I use all fitteds regularly but my prefolds don't get as much use.

Re: # of diapers you have compared to # you use.

I have 40 UBIPF but we’re only using 24 of them because the other 16 are set aside to be dyed and embellished.
We have 9 fitteds and 1 AIO with 8 more fitteds and a AI2 on the way.
So by the end of next week I’ll have

59 diapers and unless I get on it 16 will not be in rotation.

I’m still working on building my fitteds so I’ll be getting more of those and I want a few more AI1/AI2/pockets for the babysitters and diaper bag. Summer is on its way which means we’ll be camping and visiting family. I’ll need a stash that’ll last 3-5 days without washing, DS uses 12-20 a day. My kids get 3 weeks for spring break and we’ll be visiting family then. While they’re all fine with me washing diaps I don’t want to spend all my time doing it or get stuck at one persons house because I’m still washing diaps or I’m afraid they’ll help me with them.
I also want to be able to hang dry them all summer with out fear of running out.

What’s funny is that I used to make 8-15 pockets work by washing at least once a day sometimes 2xs! Now I don’t know how I did that!!
