would you need for an average hospital stay? I want my babe in cloth from the first moment she's diapered, but don't know how many I'll need at the hospital?<br><br>
Anyone have any ideas?

Some babies can take a little while to get going with the peeing, but to be safe I would assume that your newborn may need up to 12 diapers a day, and I'd probably pack a couple dozen, and a few covers. You will probably (almost certainly) not use them all, but an extra dozen diapers doesn't take up that much space.<br><br>
If the idea of stains on your brand-new diapers bothers you, I'd use inserts (either disposable or fleece/cloth that you won't mind getting stained) for the first few days, until all the meconium has passed.
