Offer to let him wash every night... He might change his mind quickly if he's the one washing every single night... Just a thought

Lol i might do that!!! We have 2 in diapers but my 3 year old is almost potty trained so i dont count him in the diaper count lol he only goes through one or two a day that i put over top of his big boy underwear incase of an accident. But our other one is a month old and i got criticized for buying one 7dollar diaper that is the next size up.. Ugh

Show him this:


It is a crappy cell pic but that was my NEWBORN stash. Now that he's bigger those are gone but I have well into the triple digits. He is probably thinking about how long people let their kids sit in sposies or maybe he is thinking of a toddler than can go all day with just 5 or 6 diapers. Not a newborn! Honestly, I'm not sure you can go a day with that stash. My baby went through 16 to 18 diapers in a day as a newby and you need something to put on the baby while you are washing/drying too. Maybe look into a local co-op group or something to add to your stash?

Re: enough diapers??

its realistic once past the NB stage to assume 6-8 DAYTIME diapers a day and between 1-3 nightime diapers depending on their sleep and night time poo schedule. That is a fair but still consertive estimate. You'll at the VERY least want to double that amount.

Re: enough diapers??

8? Diapers. My son went through at least 20 sposies a day the 8 days we had him in sposies. You would need to wash 3 times daily to keep up. If he won't allow more diapers than that can you try for 2-3 covers and use receiving blankets as flats? Our first cloth diapers were receiving blankets. They worked great. I still sometimes use them on our youngest because of the cute prints.
