How many night nappies?

Postby pinkydinkydoo » Wed Jun 11, 2008 8:58 am

dd's first ever propper night nappy landed on the mat this morning :D It's a night notions and just looking at it i know it's just what we needed and i also know it will fit perfectly because it's the same cut as the pockets :D It's all hemp and bamboo so wont dry fast, how many do you think we will need? ( i do'nt tumble dry if i can help it either).

I don't have a tumble drier so have to line dry. At the moment we have 4 night notions and it's not really enough for the two of them as I have to wash the night nappies every day and if I can't dry them outside the bamboo inserts take over a day to dry. So I would say you need at least 3 for one child if you are washing every other day.

We have 4 night nappies - 2 minkis and 2 night notions. This is just the right number for the moment for us.

currently we have 4 night nappies for each girl ( 2 minkis each and 2 baby bufters each) and most of the time this is enough, however I could do with 1 more each for those times when you get a little behind!

DH does the wash every other day (and uses the tumble dryer :oops:) and we had 3 night nappies. Bella is going to visit the grandparents for a week soon (soooo not looking forward to it) and they do not have a tumble dryer, so we have just bought 2 more night nappies to ensure there are enough. MIL doesn't like having washing hanging around during the day and our nappies won't dry completely overnight.

Well we have 7 night nappies :oops: because when its wet here they are really hard to dry and take forever. It also means that if Evie needs a change in the middle of the night then Im in no major rush to try and get nappies dry. We have a night notions, 5 Bumhuggers and one made by Allie of Scrunchkins too - all great but do take a couple of days to dry on the airer.

For night I have 2 night notions, one minky, one bamboozle and one motherease so that's 5 night nappies although I have been known to use other ones (well boosted ) too.

I would say four per baby is a good number to have but we now have five with a few pockets that can be used for days or nights...

I have:
Two night notions
1 Puddlepants Weedies
1 standard Minki
1 Jimmy Riddles

Backups:
Fitteds that can be well boosted
1 Slinki minki, bit bulky for days but quite slim for nights...
