If you could only buy 12 dipes...

Another thread on dipe q & a got me thinking. Fuzzibunz claims you only need 12 diapers to diaper from birth to potty. I have way more than that, but could probably do 12 if I washed everyday. If I had to buy only 12 I would buy all bge. What would you buy???

How about 5 softbum shells and 12 inserts? Equal to 12 dipes


Even though that'd be craziness!

Ignore typos...probably nursing, typing with one finger on my left hand while wrangling two toddlers. yeah, I'm that good.

Flats but in reality- I think at 165 I won't buy any more ever again honestly for me that's the max anyone needs with that number someone could handle 2 in diapers if they needed to, and have a newborn stash and have a stash of travel flats and wash every 36 hours however I will likely register for 5 nb diapers next time around would be nice to get them at that point after buying the 6 in my iso I'd have 30 which is good for Nbs, but flats are great and if I were really smart and had just 12 diapers and washed daily either disana gmd or hemp babies those are the best 3 unless you love bamboo in which case orange diaper and sweet bobbins both make actual flats with bamboo fleece and it'd be easy to fold down with Nbs and could be handwashed and air dried would fit forever and toddlers can't really undo pins

I had bought 13 originals & yes I had to do everyday but hoped they would be dry next day since I line dried & not dryer dried them...... Yes they were fbos but 10 snap with overlap snaps. I love & if I had to I would buy only those not even the 8 snaps.

I would do flats as well, but I would have been washing multiple times a day with just 12. As a newborn, my daughter could go through 3 times that amount!

I think having just 12 could cost you more money in the long run. You'd have to wash every day so your diapers would wear out quicker and you'd be spending more on detergent/energy (esp. if you use the dryer). Since the diapers would wear out quicker you'd be less likely to use them on multiple children or to be able to get good resale value out of them when you're done cding. Thats jmo, though. I'm a diaper addict, so I might not be the best one to ask. Lol

That said, if I could only have 12 I think I'd do 6 bg 4.0s, 4 bge, and 2 blueberry deluxe. Those are my favorites (right now. Lol).

Rainshine Designs AIO.

But I could never have less than 36. To much work, wear and tear, and zero resale value when your done with them. I like our diapes to stay looking new
