How many diapers do I need to start?

  • Your cloth diapering system can be all one type of diaper or a combination of pocket diapers, covers, prefolds, and inserts.
  • We recommend that you start with at least 2–3 dozen diapers. To make sure you have enough clean diapers to change your baby after each wetting, you’ll need at least 20 clean diapers available while the others are in the laundry.
  • Frequent washing of a small number of diapers will cause your supply to wear out quicker. A large supply will allow your system to last until your baby is potty trained.
