I'm the same, I wash at the end of the second day so that its ready to use again in the morning (use the tumble dryer :oops: ) but that is the amount that fits into my bucket... so i'm guessing between 10-12 nappies but we have a really stupidly small washer so couldnt wait another day either and i tend to add cloth bibs :roll:

Maybe it will change, but I fit in 2 nappy buckets worth (the white size you get with little lambs) and can then squeeze more into. I wait for the third day if just Ben, or the 2nd day depending on how many nappies have been used by other kids.

the 2 toddlers are, so that is quite a lot of nappies, but 1 is nearly pt, so I am keeping her in disps most of the time as its only 1 wet and poo nappy between 9 and 5 at the moment, but then I change my mind and change them more often anyway, so its 4 to 6 extra nappies somedays!

2 lots of nappies washed every other evening. So I guess about 24 ish plus assorted wipes, bibs, muslins....... It's a 7kg washer and it's always full but I guess that does include 4 night nappies. I have more than enough nappies to last at least another day but I wouldn't get them all in the machine. :-D

Well I did the nappy wash tonight so I counted!! :lol: I washed 17 nappies including prefolds and night nappies, then added teatowels, wipes, cloth bibs and her PJs that she'd poo'd on (emergency night nappy, used a blueberry!)
