I guess it depends on how often you will do a wash? At least 2 dozen is good. Those cheap little baby washcloths work really well as wipes too!

Re: How many cloth wipes do I need?

I have 18 its plenty. I don't though use a wipe with every change just with eaither poo diapers of saturated wet (after naps morning ect) I also use sposie wipes when out.. but my wipe container fits 15 of my wipes perfectly and i go through those by wash day.

Re: How many cloth wipes do I need?

to keep life pretty simple, in the sense that I never have to worry -ever- if there are clean wipes, I have 3 dozen.... but we air dry everything and use a wipe with water at every change...

my sister has as many wipes as diapers, and she she stuffs her pockets she lays in the inside of each diaper a liner and a cloth wipe- since all she uses is pockets, that works really well for her...

i would start with 18-24 but it's not like they're outrageously expensive if you end up with a lot! i love my indulgence of 36

Re: How many cloth wipes do I need?

For a newborn I would say that more is better. If you have to change her diaper 12 times each day X 2 wipes per change (lots of newborn poo)=24 wipes per day. To be safe I would have at least 3 dozen (4 would be even better for a newborn), unless you are planning on washing everyday anyway.

I know that it might sound like overkill, but I really think you will appreciate the overabundance at times. And you will find so many other uses for them when the need for changes becomes less frequent.

(I have a 2 1/2 year old and probably only go through 10 or so per day)

I have 24 and wish I had another dozen to use only for hands and faces.
