One of the most common questions I hear about cloth diapering is "How many diapers do I need?"
Well, the answer to that can range from 12-36 or even more if you're like me and are somewhat of a cloth diapering enthusiast.
For Newborns: 24-36 for full time cloth diapering because they require more diaper changes.
Toddlers: 12-24 for full time cloth diapering because their diaper needs to be changed less frequently.
I think 12 is a good number of cloth diapers to have if you're only going to use them part time (as in, you use disposables at night, with your sitter, or when you leave the house, etc.)
More than one in Diapers: I feel you'd need at least 36 diapers if you want to cloth diaper two babies at once full time. 48 is a more generous number because you'll get a laundry break!
If you have sized diapers, you'll need to repeat the number of diapers needed for each size. That would be 12-36 XS diapers, 12-36 S diapers, etc. If you buy One Size diapers, you'll only need to buy your stash once. There are positives and negatives to doing both.
What do you think? Do you agree with these numbers? Did I leave anything out? How often do you cloth diaper? How many babies do you have in diapers and how old are they? How many diapers do you have/need in your stash and why? I'm not the only cloth diapering "expert" (ha!) out there, so I'd love to get your expert advice as well.
