With Aidan I had about six, I can't remember how often we washed then. We used ME Airflow for him. They dry really really quick, we still have them 7 years later :shock: . We're moving back to fitted with Callum too. So on the look out for a couple more prettier wraps.

Oh just though I'd add that when Callum was a newborn we had around 10 wraps and always had plenty, like I said previously they dry really quick :yahoo:

I would say absolute minimum 4 for a newborn for three reasons (1) if bf'ing, you do have to change wraps slightly more frequently (2) with a newborn around you may not be so quick on the ball for washing and (3) using the same wraps all the time is boring! :giggle: x

We've got 8 but I would say 5-6 is enough

Last wash I was using fitteds full time and there were 4 wraps in the wash for about 2 days. But that doesn't include nights where I use wool / fleece. So I would say at least 6 for day time use, more if you're using them at night too.

I wash on every third day in the morning (Hi, I'm Lazy.) So I have 8 wraps. I want more ideally I'd have 10. But like I said I don't wash every other day. I think 8 would be plenty for that :)

PS Blueberry Coveralls are the best wraps I've ever used! Especially if LO has chubby legs :giggle:
