How many diapers for going out??

We are going to get some AIO/AI2 for going out to have in the diaper bag, thinking of a Magic-All and possibly 2 Daisy Doodles, just wondering how many do you think is a good number to have.

We really don't go out that often, definately not everyday or anything, so I was thinking that we oculd get by with 3 at first and see how that goes.


WDYT??

Re: How many diapers for going out??

that sounds about right. It all depends on how long you are out when you are out and how often you change your DC? We don't go out much either but when we are I always change DC within 2 hours. This weekend we ended up doing some day trips and were out for some long stretches.....
Order three and see how that goes. YOu can always bring some bulkier diapers along in the car and keep them their in case of an emergency or you are out longer than expected. I try not to leave the house with less than three diapers in the bag. Even if we just run to the store. We are still at the unpredictable explosive poo stage though...

Probably 3 minimum, more if you go out every day and tend to use the diapers in the bag a lot.
We like to keep 2-3 diapers in the bag, depending on how long I think we'll be out. Since I don't wash every day, I have more than that total, however (and of course, I'm an addict, LOL!).

4-6 is my safe number I always like 2 diapers in the diaperbag, but I tend to leave 1-2 diapers in the car at all times for just incase we are out longer then expected.

When DH is off, he tends to be off for about 6 days and likes to go shopping. So sometimes we go out 2 days in a row or more. So I need enough AIOs since I don't do laundry everyday

Think I'll start with 3 then since that seems to be a good number and I will put 3 or 4 PF's with a cover in the car for emergencies.

Then if I find I definately need more AIO/AI2's then I will just get some more.

I don't leave my back packed, so I don't know about leaving them, but I usually figure one per every 2-3 hours we'll be out and at least one extra in case of poopy blowout!

Re: How many diapers for going out??

Generally I'd keep 3-4 in the car and/or bag. We don't usually go out that long, but it's nice to have that many. If I'm planning on the whole day out we bring more- probably closer to 7. I hate being unprepared, lol!
