Too many diapers in a wash?

Right now I wash every other day but have just added some more BGs to my stash so I'm able to go another day without washing. My only concern is that if I wait that long I'll have too many diapers in the wash and they won't come clean. It would probably be 2 doz nb/infant pfs, 8 or 9 BGs and their mf inserts. In general, how many diapers should I wash at once?

i find that if i wait longer than 2 days between washes, there's just too many.

Do you have a top or front loader? I would think that matters since front loaders can generally hold more.

Front loader! I should have mentioned that.

I can safely wash around 20-25 diapers plus wipes (wet bag ect) which at my DD age is around 3 days worth. Younger and it was 2 days as a newbie we washed daily.

Hmm. I wash about 24 prefolds and 4 BG 4.0 shells (no inserts) all at once, every two days or so, now. I wonder if that's too much...
