OK, so I got my first *pretty* fluffy mail today. 3 custom made pocket dipes from dreamboat diapers. They are soooo nice and soft. I washed/dried and diapered my baby immediately!!!! So now how can I go back to prefolds? Prefolds leave lines and red marks all over my baby. I want all pockets, but GEEZ they are pricey! And I only paid $8.75 per dipe! What to do now? I talked to DH and he said when it is time to "size up" we can buy pocket dipes. I told him they cost more (but didn't give him any *prices* <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"> ) But I am thinking having 50+ pocket dipes is gonna be EXPENSIVE!!! I sure hope my DH gets a job before we need new dipes!!!!!<br><br>
edited to say: OK maybe I could have 40 pockets and a dozen prefolds for while I am doing laundry <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/rolleyes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="rolleyes">:

Wow - how often do you do laundry? Fifty pocket dipes is a LOT!! Back when I was using mainly pocket dipes with DS I only had 12, along with a dozen CPF and a few covers! I did laundry every other day.

I was just going to say, that is a ton of dipes!!! How many do you go through a day?<br><br>
I like pockets, too, especially for my dh. Virtually foolproof. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

I agree 50 is way too many. I only use 12 pockets. Then I also have some fitteds, AIO, and CPF that I use. I do wash every other day.

I do laundry every 2 days. This little bum is going thru about 20+ diapers a day <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/jaw.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="dropjaw"> And it seems everytime I put her into a dipe, she poops or pees 5 minutes later. However I didn't think about the fact that they slow down. So maybe by then I could get away with 30 pocket dipes? I dunno. Right now 4 dozen prefolds is gone in 2 days.....
