How many nappies/wraps?

Postby sttb1997 » Thu Apr 29, 2010 4:11 pm

I'm trying to get my stash ready for my new baby and as I used BG's last time with ds2 I dont' know how many nappies/wraps I need for a newborn. I have so far got about 9 fitteds, and 2 wraps plus wool. The trouble is the wraps I have got (WN's!) only go up to about 10lb so I don't want to overdo it, but I want to have enough. I am planning on knitting up some soakers and longies/shorties, but I want to make sure I have enough.

How many is enough and how many is too many?!

I'm also having some BG Organic's and ds2's old BG's and BB's on standby just in case so I definitely won't run out, but I want to use mostly fitteds if poss.

:pregnant:

With pul wraps you can normally use 2 a day and alternate them unless they poop in them lol , so use one , air one , use one air one - doesnt that make sense?? I would say you'd want around 6 though just to be sure , you can pick up plain white motherease ones on classifieds quite easily i think.

We didnt use cloth until 5 months and i dont think they wet as much as a newborn by this age , but even them i was recommended to have 20 nappies. I think i had 14 to start with but they were all fuzzi's so dried overnight whereas fitteds wont.

If it were me i think i would get a couple more cheapy wraps and about another dozen fitteds , again nothing fancy just tots , little lambs etc..

not sure if that helped at all hun :-? :oops:
