    Default How many nappies in stash for one- year- old

    Hi ladies
    I wasn't able to use MCNs when DS was born last year but now in a position laundry-wise to make the switch from disposables!
    The boy turns one next month, if I'm washing every other day how many nappies would you want to have in your stash.
    I've bought six - a couple of different styles - to try.

    TIA

    Depends on where you live for drying times coming up to winter.

    Perhaps start with what you've got but you'll need to wash daily.

    I put two inserts into each nappy and if no poo would go through 4 nappies a day probably, that includes an overnight nappy. But DS poos a few times a day usually so I change more often and it's 4-5 nappies.

    DS is nearly 14 months

    Thanks so much Shani. I'll see how we go. Just put one on him now to try the fit and he immediately done a poo! So it begins. Do you ever put yours in the dryer? I guess it varies by brand? Thanks again!

    I don't put the shels in the dryer but occasionally will put the microfibre inserts in there. I tend to at least give them some time in the sun/fresh air tho as I find they are a bit musty if they go straight from the wash to dryer

    Depends on a few factors.

    DD (18 months) goes through about 5 on a typical day. We wash every second day, but the ones we use most (BBH fitted + covers) can take quite a while to dry. During the worst of winter, we'll probably need 25-30 to make sure we get through the long drying times with nappies to spare (don't have a dryer).

    Putting them straight in the dryer isn't ideal, but it means you don't need to have so many just in case they're taking ages to dry.

    Sorry, not a firm number at all, but so many variables.

    My ds2 is 14 months.
    We use 2 inserts as pp.
    I have 12 covers and so many inserts. I wash every second day.
    I always dry in the window on my cloths rack. They get direct sun from 1pm till 3pm and are dry by then. But I have not had winter yet so may have to try the hot water cupboard if the window isn't enough.

    I have 23 and used them from when DD was 6 months till now. From 1, daily usage was about 6-8 + 2 overnight while she was still waking for feeds. She is 2 now and She typically uses about 5, but I change fairly regularly as she is prone to nappy rash. I wash about every 3 days now although i was washing every 2nd day before, so that I didn't find myself out of nappies before the others dried.

    Between 12 and 18 I think would be good for washing every second day and to have a few spares on hand.

    It depends on need and 'need'. I use 4-5 during the day and sposies at night and wash every 2-3 days. However I have about 40 in my stash as I am slightly obsessed by all the different colours and patterns.
