So, after going through our diapers, and stashing everything that is VERY holey, too big, too small, or otherwise unwearable, this is what I have left :<br><br>
12 GMAR prefitteds<br>
3 home-made prefitteds<br>
8 home-made Cuddle-buns<br>
2 Jenn-In-Seatle fitteds<br>
1 Mother-Ease One-size<br>
1 Mother-Ease Sandy, large<br>
3 Swaddlebees<br>
1 Knickernappie Toddler Pocket<br>
4 Wonderoos<br>
1 Valor-Kid AIO<br><br>
Of those, I keep the pockets and the VK AIO almost exclusively for the diaper-bag.<br><br>
Which leaves me with a grand total of :<br>
27 diapers for home<br>
9 diapers for away<br><br>
And DD goes through about 16-20 diapers a day (min).<br><br>

Yep, I'd use my diaper bag dipes at home AND I'd do a bit of shopping! Hooray for shopping! I wash every day or VERY early the next morning too so don't feel bad!<br><br>

I save the pockets for our diaper bag because DD gets a nasty heat rash from the PUL, so we can't use them often.

About the amount of diapers - this morning is a good example of how this works.<br><br>
We got up about 6:30, it's not 8:25, and she is on her 6th diaper of the day already.

She pees every 20 minutes or so? Wow, that's a lot of diapers to go through every day. About buying more- unless you have more than one washer, it might not be worth it. You can only fit so many diapers in one cycle. I have 24 diapers and I don't think I'd want to try putting any more than that in there.

She pees about every 20-30 minutes for a few hours in the morning, then slows down gradually the rest of the day. We go through the bulk of our diaper use by 10 am most days (usually about 8-10 diapers by then).<br><br>
Yes, I change her after every pee, even if it's just enough to dampen her diaper. She goes coverless, so it's fairly easy to tell when she's wet, and change her accordingly.
