How many wraps will I need for newborn?

Postby rachyrach » Mon Mar 21, 2011 10:02 pm

Hi

Always used pockets for Hannah as we started cloth later, but this time am planning on cloth from birth. Have been hoovering up fitteds for newborn stash, but wondered how many wraps will I need?

I just bought 24 terries and 3 wraps when I had ds2, washed every other day as they dried within an hour or so over the airer, and they lasted us for the first year until someone introduced me to here :giggle: The "nice nappies" followed... :lookround: :lookround:

I started off with 4 but quickly realised I needed 6 for those early newborn poopy days

Yep i have 6...its enough and i rarely run out although we are using wool too :)

I like to wash the covers pretty regularly and if the binding gets even slightly damp then it goes in the wetbag!

We had/have 6, The Zsa would at times ruin not only her nappy but the wrap too :puke:

Definitely at least 4. I would go for 6 like the others say to be on the safe side. It is quite common for newborns to dirty the wrap as well as the nappy so you may well go through a few a day. I am only going to be using wool and have about 16 soakers at last count plus skirties, shorties and longies :oops: :lol. Some of them are smalls so will be too big to start with though.
