A friend of mine just gave me a ton of prefolds, about 40 (they look pretty small, like a newborn/smal size) and about 50 kushie flats. (they're 27x27-flannellette sort of material). I think I can use these like a prefold in some covers...would that work?
I also bought some used motherease "sandies" on kijiji (12 for $45-which sounded like a pretty good deal) she threw in some covers too.
So now, (well, for now anyway) I think I only need some covers?
If you were using flats and prefolds, how many do you think you'd need for a 2-3 day rotation? I'm thinking 12 a day might do...and have some disposables on hand for night time/backup.
