How many snappi's do I need?

I am mostly doing pockets/fitted but and buying 1 doz premie and 11 doz infant IPF's. I plan on mostly using them as back up and as inserts. Do you think I can get away with just one snappi?
TIA

i would get at least 2/3 total in case one breaks. i keep one on him, one in the diaper bag, and one in his diaper stash. i even just bought 3 more, i figure the more the better

I only have one right now, I have 6cpfs. I will probably pick at least one or two more though.

Re: How many snappi's do I need?

I think 2 or 3 would be best. I seem to always have one MIA. But maybe you could just use one if you're not using prefolds much?

Re: How many snappi's do I need?

I have 6 of them...lol
But then again I have 2 in diapers, and I always try to keep 1-2 extra around in case I lose one.

I started out with 12...then I realized that was overkill! LOL
So, I gave some away to mama's who needed them and now I'm down to 4.

I'd say 3-4-- we always loose one (okay, forget loose, my son wanders off with them). Always have a prefold and wrap with snappi in the diaper bag, one on each child, and a back up.

We have one and I haven't lost it yet, but we're getting more.
