cloth product supply question

Since we're switching over to cloth diapers I decided to change some other things too. I made my own momma pads, with 10 regulars and 4 overnight/heavy duty. I made 56 wipes for cd'ing, and 3 sets of nursing pads with 3 more to come. I made 1 unpaper towel and plan on making a total of 24. And I'm going to cut up old shirts to make rags/cleaning wipes. I feel so accomplished, but does this sound like a good supply of everything?

Re: cloth product supply question

Whether it will be enough depends on the frequency that you will be washing and how fast things dry. Thing is, by making your own, if you find that you need more, you can just make more :-)

Re: cloth product supply question

I'm so impressed by all these crafty mamas. I wish you lived on my street so that I could watch and learn. I am just terrible at sewing and do not own a machine.

Re: menstrual cloth. It sounds like you either have a very short flow or are planning to wash once mid period, using an electric dryer. For that gameplan, it sounds like a good stash.

Re: cloth product supply question

great job! I was thinking about what else I use to add to it:
I use dish covers instead of plastic wrap.
We use cloth sandwich and snack bags
we have flannel tissues in a box in the bathroom
And we have a large basket of cloth napkins next to our kitchen table

Other then that you've got it all!
oh..and if you needed the patterns for the dish covers and sandwich bags, their on my website.

Deb I do plan on washing mid cycle or every other day.

I also figured the larger wipes I have can double for tissues.

Re: cloth product supply question

I feel like you can never have enough wipes. I have about 50 and have been meaning to make more bc I use them for everything! We use them as tissues when we get sick, I use them to wipe up spit up, wipe down toys, surfaces when we're out and about and so much else.

And I have 10 sets of nursing pads bc I wash them weekly with our laundry so by the time I do laundry I only have a couple pairs left and sometimes it takes a couple days to put the laundry away :/
In the beginning I could've used more, but I subbed with disposibles bc I had a wicked over-supply at night and would leak constantly! If I did it over again I would've wanted closer to 30 sets to start with.
