How many diapers to bring to the hospital?

Title pretty much says it! I am packing for the new one's birth and want to do cloth in the hospital. I have a ton of covers, but how many pre folds or fitteds should I bring?

We took cloth to the hospital. My daughter nursed well from the start but did not have a lot of wet or dirty diapers. I think we used 5 in the 30 hours we were there. I took probably 24 cause you just never know Once we were home, she started peeing more frequently and we used 10-12 a day.

I took about 24, but only used maybe 12-15 for 1.5 days in the hospital

I think we took 12 last time and were there for just over 24 hrs. I think we still had a few that weren't used, but I think I'm going to take 18 this time to be on the safe side.

We were in the hospital for 24 hours, DD nursed well but like pp, few dirty diapers during that first day. I'd bring 12, I think we only needed 4-5.
