I think I'm crazy, but I plan to sew up teeny-tiny NB covers - not covers that are small that will be too huge on a NB but they will grow into them, but ones that will only fit for a month they're so small. I just don't want to use my small pattern that I know will be so big at first. So, I'm wondering if someone can refresh my memory - how many times per day does a NB poop? I figure I'll for sure need a new cover for every poop, but hope to reuse them if it's just pee. So how many if I plan to do laundry every other day? It's been a LONG time since DS was a NB - I forgot


Thanks!

Well I used sposies then but we easily went through 15-20 diapers a day and at least 12 or more were poppy ones she was a popping machine.

: My oldest was a poop machine too. It seemed like every other diaper was poopy. I think the 15-20 is a good estimate for a NB. It's probably also safe to estimate 1 out of three or 1 out of 4 will be poopy. Unless you have a poopy kid

We went through 18-20 dipes a day with about half poopy. BUT, I we only went through 2-3 covers a day. Why do you think you will need a new cover with each poop?

We started using cloth at around 3 months she still had very watey poo and even with fitted we needed a new cover with each pooy diaper cause while the cover prevented leaks something always got onto the cover.

Even though we used 'sposies with dd at this age, she still went through at least 18 diapers a day. I imagine with cloth though, it will be double, since I'll be using fitteds and dont like the idea of sitting in a wet dipe. I change for every pee. I'll never understand those who only go through 12 cd's a day!!!

we are going through 12-14 diapers a day with my almost 2 week old.

She sleeps well at night though, with a 3 hour and a 4 hour stretch. At night I change her only when she gets up to nurse and first thing in the morning. I just can not see waking myself and her up in the middle of the night to change diapers. It would be crazy. I use a microfiber cloth as a doubler during those times and she does fine. We change as needed during the day.

Well, I figure if it's just a little spot of poop I won't, but otherwise, I am using contour diapers so anything significant is going to get on the cover.
