    Cloth diapers - how many?

    Advertisements
    I really want to give cloth diapers a try..My question is, how many do I need? Keep in mind I'm preggo with twins.

    I know I'm buying several different ones to find out whats best for us but I have no clue exactly how many I should be looking into?

    Any suggestions? Thanks!

    Yeah, I'd get at least 25. Plan on doing laundry at least once a day! We're doing cloth at home, organic disposables when we're out. I'm nervous, too!

    Thumbs Up Been there Cloth can rock... if you are prepared.

    the average kid "eliminates" every 2 hours soooo are you gonna commercial diaper at night? you will want to have 30 on hand per kid for around the clock....or 20 to make it through the day light hour. Less as time marches on. (it is easier to potty train a kid in cloth)
    Have a tub with water and oxy clean next to the washer soak the diapers till you have a decent load and remember NO FABRIC SOFTNER( prevents adequate absorption and causes rashes. Good luck

    That's what I want to do, but Tony REALLY doesn't want to cloth diaper At least he's on board for the organic disposables, that's what we have ready in the nursery

    I think 25 is a good number to go for. I had a lot of them when I have two in cloth. I did laundry everyday just to avoid the smell.
