Jennyanydots Thanks, skycheattraffic smile.gif that sounds about right. I was thinking of bringing my supply up to around a dozen or so AIOs (I could go with pockets- I guess I'll need just compare some brands/prices) and maybe a dozen prefolds as backup, etc. we have so many good covers, I'd hate for them to be useless now. Just wasn't sure what other moms do. I do "diaper laundry" every 3 days or so, to wash covers, wipes, and the AIOs we've got now. Every two wouldn't kill me, I don't think.

skycheattraffic I use a lot of pockets instead of AIOs but I thought I'd reply. We have about 16 pockets and that lets me wash every other day. I do have some fitteds for night use but DD wakes 2 to 4 times a night and I always change her. I also have a few flats and a couple of covers and use those when I'm low. I ordered 4 more diapers recently to help me keep laundry to every other day. My DD is 17 months old, a big drinker (nursing and water) and a very heavy wetter. I'd start with a dozen AIOs and see how long they last you. If you're ok with washing every day then they might be enough. HTH

Jennyanydots DS is 14 months and we've been using a wonderful diaper service since he was born. I've always kept a couple of AIOs in the diaper bag for quick changes, but we've never had more than three. I am thinking of getting some more and stopping the service, and I was wondering how many you typically have in your stash if you only use AIOs. Thanks in advance!
