Newborn diapers?

How many newborn diapers are recommended? I would like to wash every other day possibly every 2 days.

I had 24 Swaddlebees fitted through the newborn rental Sweetbottoms offered and that was enough to wash every other day

DD averaged 15 diapers/day for the first 2 months. We needed 36 diapers to wash every other day and still have diapers left to use while laundry was going.

Re: Newborn diapers?

I know I'm the crazy odd man out, but I only had 14 newborn diapers+3 covers, and that was enough to wash every day and a half. So I think all you REALLY need is 20 for the newborn stage. Call it an even 2 dozen and you should be good.

We have 40 prefolds and 8covers. With our daughter we went through about 10 to 15 diaper changes a day for the first 2 weeks so I figured this would give us a couple days worth.

Ditto to the 15 changes a day in the beginning. I still wash daily out of habit.
