I've decided on going with prefolds. What's a good # of diapers to have on hand?(We do have a washer/dryer in the house but I don't want to have to do diapers every day... maybe every other or every 2 days) I also think I'll order the infant sized no newborn sized since he most likely will be around 9lbs if not more... is this a good idea or will I find the infant ones too big? Wraps? (I'm thinking of going with the Bummi's super whisper- a few in newborn sized but mostly small sized) What about cloth wipes? I'ld prefer to make them myself instead of buying if I can find what I need for cheaper (which I'm sure I could) what's a good material for this? Anything you think I'm forgetting?

I think most people will tell say you need 3 dozen diapers and 6 covers for a newborn. We had 2 dozen diapers and 4 covers and never ran out. I did laundry every other night. I also had and felt like I needed one wipe for each diaper. Most every diaper was poopy in the begining. Sometimes we needed more then one wipe too.

I have about 3 dozen diapers. A few more than 2 dozen infant prefolds and a dozen kissaluv contours and 6 nb proraps and a nb Bummis. The infant size with nb covers has been working fine for my little one who was only a little over 6 lbs at birth. I have 6 small covers too, but I haven't gotten to them yet...oh, and the wipes; I have 4 dozen wash cloths for my two in dipes that I just use tap water to moisten.
