yep seriously one cloth diaper buy a day will keep the need for sposies away LOL. Ok anyway seriously How many diapers do you need in a day to diaper a new born? How many would you need to get through two days with out washing? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/bag.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Bag">:

a diaper a day . . . that's a lot of diapers, lol!<br><br>
When my ds was a newborn, I had 13 cpf's and 13 kissaluvs, and I was doing laundry every other day. So I guess you'd have to double that to go 2 days inbetween washes.

28 a day! wow! you will definetly not run out! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love"> I think we had about 10 per day but I also let her be naked lots. We sort of used receiving blankets and chucks pads! She was a lotus baby, so for the first few days while her placenta was still attached we didnt leave the bed and she was naked most of the time.

I would say around 30 fitteds and a ton of covers. We were changing Hadley, ok still are, at the very least every 1-2 hours and every one was a poop. Sometimes the poop escapes and gets on the covers so you have to change those, too.

I donated the sposies so none would ever be used around me or this house (or my parents)

I think I go through 18-20 a day, but I'm a freak. :LOL I have a super soaker and change him every 30 min or so because he's sopping wet so quickly.

C is 2.5mo and somedays we still go through 15+/day. Thats esp true if I change him a couple times at night (and I've gotten in the habit of changing him mid-night too when I go to bed). I'd say the fewest we've gone through in a day might've been 12? He pees/poops pretty often still and if I feel his diaper and its at all wet I change it. So I'd say we need at least 30 still to get through 2 days. But if they get caught in a laundry cycle...what do I do? So really I'd say up to 36, which is what the PFs help with and some of those used "works but not great" kind of diapers.<br><br>
We only have problems with poop on covers every couple of days-- so that hasn't been an issue. But I'm loaded for bear on covers anyway. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love"> (and yet still bear hunting <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1"> )

MamaLotus: What is a lotus baby? I am unfamiliar with this term and now you have me very curious. I tried looking it up on Yahoo but nothing came up. Would you mind explaining it? I hope that this isn't the dumbest question in the world. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/bag.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Bag">:<br><br>
Thanks!
