Re: How big was your newborn stash?

W/ DS I had about 4doz & felt it was more than enough. I wouldn't want fewer than 3 doz for a nb b/c they go through soooo many diapers. I think 1 day I counted 18 w/ DS b/c he was a pooping machine

-2 doz green mtn diapers nb workhorse fitteds
----going to sew obv topped doublers for these
-18 xs bg aios
-6 WAHM fitteds
-3 TH duos size 1
- a bunch of wool

Re: How big was your newborn stash?

With my last baby I had 29 and felt like I could haves used a few more. So next time I am aiming for 36.

Re: How big was your newborn stash?

For the first 3 weeks we had 22 AIO's- wish we had at least 10 more
now we have 15 pockets, luckily more are on the way (26 more)

I am finding with only 22 or 15, I am having to wash every night or we dont have diapers. Luckily I have some flip covers and pf's for emergencies.

Re: How big was your newborn stash?

With DD I had 36 and that was perfect for washing every other day. I'll have 42 this time since I added in 6 grovia newborn to what I saved from DD. I think anything less than 36 and you are pushing it if you want to be able to only wash every other day. My DD went through a lot of diapers in a day, at least 12, sometimes more!

Re: How big was your newborn stash?

I have done 24 and I have done 36...both worked fine because we wash so often. I am not sure how many we will end up with this time around, I have not counted yet.

Re: How big was your newborn stash?

14 fitteds, 12 prefolds. Tons of covers. Didn't have enough diapers so I bought 10 more fitteds.
36 is perfect.

Re: How big was your newborn stash?

We had 36 prefolds and 4 covers.

We washed nightly but baby went through 20+ diapers a day. Since our washer only held 24 prefolds comfortably waiting longer would have meant doing 2 loads of diapers in a day.

Re: How big was your newborn stash?

We're on the high end of the spectrum... with about 30 changes we were barely making it by doing laundry every day. For the first 3 months she went through 20-26 dipes daily, no matter the type/brand (even sposies). She cried for every dirty diaper. But I think that's probably worst case scenario. I wouldn't even consider having fewer than 3 dozen changes for the next baby, although I'm happily using this an excuse to be NB stash crazy!
