One of the first questions of parents who are just about to try cloth diapers is how many diapers do they need.
The answer depends on how often you want to do the laundry and how often you change the diaper. In the first three months of life, the infant wets the diaper very often, so it has to be changed up to 12 times a day. During this period you will need a bit more absorbent inserts or you will need to wash them daily.
From about 4 months of age, the diaper will be changed about 8-10 times a day and this number will be reduced around the first birthday of the child.
So, assuming you wash every other day you will need:In the neonatal period
- about 36 inserts (a reserve for 2 days is 24 inserts + a third set in the wash). Remember that diapers must also have time to dry.
If you start using cloth diapers and your baby is older than 3 months
, you can easily buy 30 inserts.
Regardless of the age of the child, 4-5 wool covers will be needed.
However, if you do not mind daily washing, the numbers will be smaller.
To facilitate the task of completing your first diaper stash, we have prepared in our store starter kits, which contain a set of covers and inserts, which can be used as a base for later expansion.
We are also happy to prepare an individual proposal tailored perfectly to your child's needs. All you need to do is to write to us giving basic information about your child: gender, age, weight and a brief description of how often you put on the laundry. Do you plan to use cloth diapers exclusively or to mix it up with disposable ones? What is your budget for the entire set? Contact details you can find below, in the footer.
