I have a VERY frequent piddler, and I have been changing him every 15 minutes! :LOL I have gone through 12 dipes in the time that he's been awake today... (He was sleeping in a FB)...and it's only 4 PM, we've got 4 more awake hours! How many dipes do you use in a day?

Yep. I cannot believe how many diapers I go through coverless. About 3 an hour! Sometimes only 1 per 2 hours but then she catches up with a vengence!

Wow, I didn't know they peed so much
Right now Ariana is in sposies
: until her covers come. All I have from the stash I ordered on Thursday/Friday is two hemp HH's and 4 Stuffin's with liners...

I want to use them!

That is why I use mostly pfs and wash every 2 days :LOL. Otherwise I couldn't afford to co coverless all the time. In the morning and late afternoon 3 an hour, mid morning she naps and really doesn't pee much. I've even put her in a fitted coverless for a nap and most of the time it's barely damp when she wakes up, only to pee on me 3 seconds after waking up
.

Sometimes I still use covers because it's quicker to trifold in a bummis wrap than to deal with the snappi and she at least doesn't catch herself on the rug then :LOL.

So on average I guess 16 or so?? She naps in the afternoon for 3 hours and is up the rest of the time but after dinner she isn't going as much so the bulk of our changes are in the morning so 3x 4 hours is 12 and then one dipe for nap, and a few more changes before bed and then no changes until morning.

Give or take a dozen. If we don't go to town for some reason, it's more than that because I use super duty diapers that I don't have to change as often. You can tell how much time we spend in town by how big our diaper load is.

For us, it depends on if we are inside or outside. If we're inside, we can go through dipes really quickly - sometimes changing twice in 10 minutes! If we're outside, there is so muck to do/look at, so Holden doesn't nurse as much so he doesn't pee as much. When we're outside, he can sometimes stay in the same fitted with no cover for almost 2 hours!! Then of course, he nurses incessantly for w bit and soaks 2-3 really quickly!

How many dipes is that total? What do you use-diaper and/or liner--and does he realy soak it through?
