Re: # of cloth wipes you need?

At least four dozen flannel/terry wipes to use as diaper wipes.

Then we have 60++ single-ply flannel wipes I keep folded in tissue boxes to use as tissues, washcloth, etc.

Re: # of cloth wipes you need?

I had 2 dozen for the longest time, and found that to be enough, then I started using them for wiping DD's face in the morning (gotta get the eye boogers!), and her hands and face when she eats. I just ordered 2 more dozen so I'll have a total of 48, and I'm pretty sure that'll be plenty for us.

Re: # of cloth wipes you need?

I have around 30-36 and there are days when I have plenty and days when it seems like there is never enough. Ideally, I would like 50 because we use them for so many things from diaper changes to me blowing my nose. I just need to remember to get more or make more!

Re: # of cloth wipes you need?

way too many :S lol. a dozen each for nose, face (mealtimes), bathtime, and 4 dozen-ish for bum wipes (which is more than I need, but lets me leave a stack for him at daycare for them to use).
I would say, if you are just using them for bum wipes, get about 2 /diaper x however many diapers you use per wash cycle. Add an extra dozen for any other use you have in mind (noses, face, bath time, etc.)

Re: # of cloth wipes you need?

Thank you everyone! You've been super helpful! I want to use them for noses, and hands too like most of you have said, because I'm trying not to use papertowels around the house...thanks a bunch, I'm going to get to sewing some more tonight, and want to get some flannel this weekend

I have 2 dozen for baby bums and then another 3 or 4 dozen for family cloth, kleenex, paper towel etc. They are great!!!

Re: # of cloth wipes you need?

I have 70 I bought them from a wahm on here and love them for everything-baby bums, faces/hands/noses, wiping down the bathroom counters, bath time, etc. They do everything around my house sara
