With sposies as a backup, I'd say 7 or 8. We'd have to wash daily, and would use disposables at night. My guess though, is that they would wear out fast, so not sure how long those 7 or 8 would last.

Apparently, 11 + 2 night time diapers.

Well we use disposables at night so with washing every other day I could get away with like 16. I managed to diaper a newborn with 12 diapers. I washed multiple times a day. Not good for one's sanity!

18 is the lowest I have gone with my oldest and when DD was a newborn. It was fine but not ideal. I'm trying to streamline now for DS2 to 36. DD has 6 night diapers.

Re: Soo...whats the LEAST number of dipes you could get away with?

I once had 12 pockets for a stretch while I was figuring some things out and saving funds.

It was awful!!!! I had to wash every day and I hated it. I could certainly do it again if I had to, but honestly, I think I would switch to sposies first. It made me hate cloth diapering.

This time, I built a stash of 36 b/c I realized I am the happiest when I wash every 3rd day. Cloth just doesn't bother me at all then.

For my nearly 18mo, I could get away with 18 prefolds and 3 covers if I had to, washing every other day. I have more prefolds and a few more covers though .

YDD is in one diaper for 12 hours at night, so during the day, she is changed every 2.5 hours or so. So absolutely least? Probably 7-8 diapers. But you'd have to wash at night and dry at night, so they would be ready in the morning. And they would wear out super fast.

I think 12 would be an absolute minimum for us at this point, but I wouldn't want to do that. Too much washing for me and for the diapers... I feel like having so few would cost as much/more as having a good sized stash in the long run because they'd wear out so much more quickly.
