I used regular pads for both of my boys postpartum and I could not stand the plastic/gel filled texture of them. (That's just me, though, I don't mean to talk bad about something that other women use ) So this time I am sewing some mama cloths for myself, I have 9 so far. Really heavy duty stuff, strictly for postpartum, no cutesy prints or anything like that. How many do you think I would need? If I do a wash every single day (because I will have two babies in cloth diapers at that point, so I could just throw them in with the CD laundry) would it be like CDing a newborn - changing a pad every one to two hours? Because that makes me feel like I would need a lot. And then about how many "regular" mama cloths would I need for the next month or two?
Anyone have any experience with this?
