Re: Do you think 8 covers are enough for a newborn?

We had 6 and that was good. Fewer fit in the very beginning and toward time to switch to OS.

We had 10 covers and 24 prefolds. We washed every other day. I thought the 10 covers was good for us... my DD was a poop *machine*!

It depends on if you are fastening the diaper or not. If the diaper is fastened, then yes. If you are trifolding/padfolding, then I'd say 2 more.
