The next question that typically comes up after learning about the types of diapers and figuring out which type of diaper you think would work best for your family is trying to figure out how many cloth diapers you need. Let’s take a closer look at that!
How many cloth diapers do I need?
How many cloth diapers
you need really depends on how often you want to do laundry
. If you want to do laundry
every other day you would typically need about 2.5 times the number of diaper changes you have in a day in order to have diapers to use while you are doing laundry
. For example, if you change your baby 10 times in one day you would need approximately 10 x 2.5 = 25 cloth diapers
to do laundry
every other day. When diapering our children we used between 10 – 15 diapers a day for newborns and between 6 and 10 per day as a toddler to give you an idea of how many diaper changes you might be doing if you are just getting started or are pregnant with your first child.
