I have no idea, but when I had a toddler and nb in dipes I was washing every other day. I would say you would wash daily, or every other day.

I only have two in diapers, but I do wash every other day, mostly becasue I prefer smaller more frequent loads then huge ones.

Yikes I don't even want to know. HAHA
I can't imagine even cding twins.
Think of all those diapers in the first few weeks...at least 24 a day. WOW!
Seriously I did cd 3 at one point but one was just at night, 1 almost 2 and baby.
I don't remember it being "that" overwhelming. It was about 3 years ago now though so my brain has probably blocked it out.

BTDT. It's not as bad as it sounds.

Everyother day. 4-5 dozen diapers. And about 20 covers Oh and 2LARGE diaper pails

My washer can only hold 2 days of 3 in diapers. on the highest water level, lol!

I actually owned the least # of diapers when I had all 3 in diapers, lol. I guess I was too busy changing them to shop for more

Re: anyone have 3 in dipes?

When I first started I had three in dipes, but my 3yo is finally potty trained! I had to wash every single evening, so I didn't have to have a very large stash, maybe 12 dipes for the two older ones, a few more for the baby.

Re: anyone have 3 in dipes?

I have three in diapers but I am lucky that they are all the same size. I have 4 dozen pfs and 15 or 16 covers and a few pockets that I use for backup cover. I wash every 2nd day. We did make through 4 days once (on a trip) but we were super careful with our covers so that they would last.

Re: anyone have 3 in dipes?

I have 22 month old twins and an almost 8 month old... we use pockets and prefolds and wash every day, basically. Sometimes every other day, depending. My twins are naked a lot since they are potty training *ahem naughty and like to take off dipes!!!*... it's a lot of washing but really isn't that bad.

ETA, I use 1 dozen prefolds and covers for my youngest, along with some FB and Swaddlebees.. for the twins I have about 12 diapers for each girl... magicalls, HHs, FBs, bG, SB, and some misc. AIO's. The twins are the heavy wetters and dirty the most dipes in one day. I usually just wash when the pail(s) get full, we have 2 pails total.
