    Default How many MCNs will I likely need?

    Simple question - Im planning on using MCNs, namely Peapod bran. But Im wondering how many I should get? Im also going to have a few flat terry cloth nappies around just as extras, but I plan on using the Peapods most of the time.

    I have 2 in cloth but for just 1 if you are going to wash every 2nd day I'd go 24-30. Look at a few diff brands though some people love peapods but they were never great for us.

    I have ds in cloth all day and disposables overnight. I only have about 12 and I wash everyday. He is 14 months though so doesn't need changing as much as a little baby.

    I had about 20 to start, all peapods. Like ppl said they suit some but not others. Maybe try One or two b4 u buy lots. I found I got sm and couldn't use till my DD was 3 months old as she was so little. But they lasted till toilet training
    Btw I love peapods

    I've got about 25 or so. By the time you've got 3 or 4 in the nappy bag, plus 10-ish in the bucket or in the wash, plus a few in the cupboard or waiting to be folded, etc...... They all add up, otherwise I spend every 2nd day washing/drying/folding.

    I agree maybe start with 5-6 and see if you like them, and if they work for bub. Not all brands work on my boy, I just bought 5-6 different brands and now use mainly Hippybottomus. Now he's 19 months and quite chunky, and they're getting really tight on him cause they're snaps, not velcro. I'm glad we bought them but now I'm getting more into disposables, he's just growing out of the cloth ones.

    Oh and I used terry flats twice - he peed through them instantly. I only used them to spew cloths, which wasn't very often. They sit in the cupboard doing nothing now.
