How many in your working stash?

How many do you rotate through? How often do you do a load? Do you wash/dry AI1's separately than pockets? I have about 8 BG 4.0's and 10 prefolds and have to do laundry every day (my DD does not tolerate a wet diaper at all!) Need to build up my stash!

Re: How many in your working stash?

I have maybe 16 or 18 BG pockets and just added 6 prefolds. I wash every 2-2.5 days. I wash them all together!! I finally feel like I have the right number of dipes.

Re: How many in your working stash?

I have 1 in cloth. She uses 2 diapers a day during the week (she is with a sitter for most of the day and uses disposables there). And we do cloth full time anytime we are home or out and about as a family. I wash every 2 days just because I do not care for them to sit but I wash weekly night-time diapers with our towels.

We have in our rotation (we have others but do not use them)
1 dozen brown edge workhorses
2 dozen green edge workhorses
1 dozen large GMD prefolds
9 Sbish Large Flats/Prefolds (I hope to get a dozen but hate duplicate colors)
1 dozen Large DR Bamboo Prefolds
1 dozen DR Flats
4 Sbish OBFs for nights
5 Soft Sophia's Hybrid Fitteds (for hubby to use because he hates the diaper pins/snappi)

She is sensitive to PUL/TPU so we only use wool but in the past when I used a wide variety on my boys I always washed/dried everything together every 2nd night.

Between flats and fitteds I have 124 that I rotate through. I wash every 2-3 days.

Re: How many in your working stash?

We work like this:
We go through our 3 Sweet Iris Snug Bug flats first (and just added two more seconds to our collection today )
Then our 3 Tencel flats
our 6 GMDs

Then our RealNappies pre-folds - we've got 18 we rotate through.

Then I use one of our Grovia Ai2s or AIOs, one or two of 6 random FSOT fitteds that fits like a contour - maybe it's a Caboose something or other--at any rate it's good as an extra layer to hold on pad folded flats. Maybe a tie-on nappy once a week or so.

So at any rate I actually rotate through about 40 different diapers. I've got a dozen or two more that I use rarely, not including things she's outgrown (mostly tons of refolds). We're going about 3 days between washings at the moment.

In my working stash:
6 simplex OS
6 Grovia snap-in inserts
12 Grovia bamboo prefolds
6 Grovia shells
2 BG Freetimes
4 BG 4.0s stuffed with Thirsties hemp for nights

I was every 2 days. I would like 4-6 more Grovia stay-dry snap-ins since I always reach for those first.

Currently we are still in newborn/small and rotate through:
36 prefolds
8 fitteds
11 pul covers
6 aio
So 50 changes and I was every 2-3 days, but I rarely get them washed, dried and folded in one day so having enough changes for 3-4 days is what works for us.
Once I go to os I will have:
24 prefolds
24 pockets
6 fitteds
So 54 changes, and my washing habits will be the same.

My iDevices are out to get me. Please excuse mistakes.
