The answer depends on how often you want to do laundry and how often you will change the diaper. It is also important at what age your baby is.
In the first three months of life a diaper may be changed up to 15 times a day. During this period you will need more inserts or you will need to wash the diaper every day. From around 4 months of age the diaper will be changed around 10 times a day and this number will reduce around the baby's first birthday.
So, assuming you wash the nappy every other day, you will need:
In the newborn period - about 45 absorbent inserts (a supply for 2 days is 30 inserts + a third set in the wash). Remember that the diapers must also have time to dry. For this you need about 5 woolen covers, which are the leak-proof layer of the diaper.
If you start using cloth diapers after the 3rd month, you can safely buy 30 absorbent inserts. Additionally, you will need 3-5 covers.
However, if you don't mind washing every day, the numbers will be correspondingly smaller.
