I have a 2 month old. How many would you start with? I was thinking 18-24.
What do you think? Thanks!

im assuming you mean pfs? 2 doz should be ok, but the more the better since you have to change a lot at that age. with 2 dozen i would guess that you would have to wash every 2 you can base it on how often you want to do laundry. at that age i think i had more like 3 doz and washed twice a week. it was a good number for us. if you are using pockets, 18-24 should be plenty, especially if you get some absorbant inserts.

I had 3 dozen and that was ideal. We washed every 2-3 days.

It depends on how often you want to wash, really. If you're okay with every day or every other day, then 2 dozen should be okay. But for a 2 month old, you're still looking at more frequent diaper changes, so be prepared to launder often if you're only having 18 or so on hand.
