I only had flannel receiving blankets for my July baby last year and he never seemed hot/overheated. A few receiving blankets might be an inexpensive way to fill in when swaddling blankets are being washed.

Love the aden and anais ones. I used about 12 for my Feb baby and my friend used about 8 for her May baby....so I think you may have enough.

I just bought one set of those from Target. They are so soft! I wish they made those in adult sizes.

I have 6 and that is plenty for us, but my LO didn't spit up so we get a lot of uses out of them w/o needing washing.

We had about 4 for our Feb baby and that was plenty, but she didn't spit up much and we only swaddled when she was sleeping past a few weeks.

I have a pack of 4, stole the one from the hospital and actually used 1 swaddleme to actually swaddle her.

the pack of 4 and the hospital blanket only got used as like carseat blankets and such. but, my kiddo has only spit up maybe 10 times in her whole 8 months of life. I guess that's why people have a lot of them?

We actually used disposibles the first month (DD was small and the CDs didn't fit) so we had TONS of poop blow outs. Besides this, we probably would have only used a/b 4 a wash period.
