xixstar Posted March 6, 2017 Share Posted March 6, 2017 I have made 100s of cloth diapers - mostly Pocket Diapers which are my favorite. They clean well, easy to make and you can customize the absorbency. I ran a business for a while - not that we used that many personally. Lol. I Cloth diapered 3 kids (still going). Even having made so many diapers, for my youngest child I bought diapers because it was cheaper than my time to make more. I got Alvababy pocket diapers, you can find them on Amazon. I paid a few dollars per diaper (check for lowest price on camelcamelcamel). And I have a few used diapers from friends too. But those are the majority of my stash. I have about 25 diapers. They're one size and I've used them from 2 months until now at 17 months. Before that, I used infant prefolds and newborn covers until baby is big enough to fit into the one-size diapers. For people doing full time cloth diapers from birth, I suggest 3 dozen infant prefolds and 4-5 covers. Otherwise, if you do a mix of disposables, 2 dozen prefolds is fine. I also have a dozen toddler prefolds that we use for nighttime diapers (past newborn stage) with a cover and a microfiber insert too. I have 3 covers for nighttime as as backups when all the diapers are dirty. Bonus about those prefolds from the beginning - you can stuff them in the pocket diapers. :) I sometimes feel sad I didn't make anymore diapers for my youngest, I even have all the supplies still, but maybe the hundreds I made were enough. 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
