I had 35 and I washed every other day. I'm not sure I could have stretched it to every 3 days but I never tried! It was enough for us wiith drying time as I don't have a dryer.

I went with 30 on the basis I didnt want to wash more than 15 at a time, so while 15 are drying I have 15 to use. I prob washed every other day for the first 6wks or so untill it calmed down abit! I now wash every 3 days :thumbsup:

If you're washing every 3 days then you'll need at least 40 I would think. We used 10-12 a day in the early weeks. Better to have 25-30 and wash every other day IMO.

I'm thinking 15 to use, 15 to dry too and washing alternate days. I have the following:

7 nb bimbles
19 size 1 fitteds (little lamb, tots bots, bambinex)
A million prefolds

4 size 1 thirsties / duo wraps and 4 bambino mio wraps.

We also have O's bumgenius pockets for when LO gets a bit bigger.

That should last us a while, I think.

I think I did this all wrong! I have 3 xs OWW, 3 teenyfit, 2 small bambooty, and 5 diddy diapers, plus a couple of tiny bimbles/bumbles?? I can't get the hang of the diddy diapers they are huge on him and the bimbles I bought pre loved and they are a bit hard and rough. I didn't think Oscar would be that small so I've got about 25-30 smalls, 20 odd mediums and then about 10 easifits and bg's. I wish I'd bought a few more NB size but I was worried it would be money wasted.

I'm using disposables at night :(

I do really like the size 1 thirsties wraps, they probably won't last that long but they fit really well on newborns!
