Exactly what Louise said - you would need a lot to wash every 3 days and that costs more money. Better to have a smaller stash and wash every other day... you'll need enough as it is lol.

I would go for 25+ too for every other day.

I found 25 and washing every 2 days was enough. For cheap newborn nappies I used muslins with a small wrap.

i have bought 54 newborn nappies!!! and that's having destashed a load. i decided not to use muslins/prefolds as i was so sleep deprived with the last babba i'm not sure i could manage lol!
btw i'm selling some newborn nappies on ebay, a cheap and cheerful package but good for boosting:
