We use wool around the house and either wool or pull on nylon covers for outings. I was thinking 4 wool covers would be enough, but man it would be SO hard to narrow it down to my 4 favorites as I really like them all. I'll probably keep all my featherlites too since they dont' sell for much and pack up really small for the diaper bag. Off to think about what, if any, wool I can part with. :LOL
Thanks again! It's good to know I'm on the right track.

I was buying lots when C was going through 18+/day. But now he's slowed down a lot (10+/day)-- so I...have...too...no, I can't say it. I just can't say it. But w/ a family of 6 and a disorganized household, it might take a couple days for laundry to get through the system, so I actually HAVE to be prepared for 5 days. Honest. A more organized house (read: more organized SAHDh) might allow me to simplify...but I can't under current conditions.
Good luck to you though.
We're currently using 6 prefolds, 4 AIOs, about 10 fitteds, 2 wool covers and 4 PUL covers. I have more items that fit now (or are too large) that are not used in our rotation. My daughter is 2. In a normal day I'll use 6-8 diapers. I wash every day so I have more than enough. In fact, I've never run out. Even if I washed every other day, I'd be fine. Heck, I could wash every three days and I'd be fine!
I think 2 dozen dipes and 4-6 covers is plenty!

Oh! Good rationalizing! I have been feeling so guilty about my oversized stash, but if I don't count the longies or the Little Lambs, beacause they are only for outfits, or the fleece covers that are too bulky under anything and so are shorts, well then I ONLY have a dozen fitteds and a dozen FB for daycare! And I won't count the 20 PFs because they are stuffers and in case of emergency.
Whew, I've got a small stash, LOL!
In the house we wear fitteds without covers and since we hardly ever get out of the house, I only own 1 wool soaker and I'm about to start a pair of wool shorts for him. We use his soaker mostly just for overnight.
I like him just running around in fitteds He has sensitive skin and I change him faster when he just wears fitteds. It's easier to tell as soon as they are wet. faster changes = no rash
So anyway, I think you only need 18. But I am aiming for 36.
