Night nappies - how many?

Postby Bluebell » Fri Nov 12, 2010 1:49 pm

How many do we need for one in cloth? I assume they take a while to dry (we hang them over the bath) but the wraps/fleece will dry pretty quickly? So we'll need more nappies than wraps/fleece? At the moment we have 5 sets of night time inserts for our pockets, so I'm guessing we'll need 5+? I have bought 4 in classifieds already, just waiting to try them out to see which work best for us.

Yes, thanks, it does! We wash about every other day too... I was hoping the answer was going to be at least 4 more or something heehee :giggle:

What I didn't say is we did end up with 9, not because we needed them but just because :giggle:

We have 9 or 10 (can't remember :oops: ) which is partly to cut down on washing and partly because I can't resist a pretty night nappy..... :giggle:

I would say 5 is a minimum. You might like to have more for unexpected poos etc. I have way more than I need so never run out.

I started with 3 and could actually work fine on 3 always had one clean but would say at least 5 especially in winter when your waiting for them to dry!! I now have 6 because i couldn't resist. What have you bought? :hug: :hug:
