I'm doing the twins' laundry ever 3rd day, they're 11 weeks right now. I use 2-3 outfits a day per twinx3 days=10 outfits in each size range. They just moved into 6 months clothes at 11 weeks. I use approx 2 receiving blankets per twin a day right now, and about 3 bibs per day per twin. Guess it depends on how often you want to do laundry, lol!
I'm using every 3 days:
6 receiving blankets
They were in 0-3 month clothes for less than amonth, and 3-6 month clothes for another 4 weeks. I suspect they'll sit in 6 month clothes for awhile now.
I just put the twins in Gro-Bags for the first time tonight, I only have two in this size, but I'm looking at buying two more used ones to accomodate for midnight pee-outs... I LOVED my sleepbags with my first son-and always made sure I had one spare each night.
I have 100+ Prefold diapers that I use as burp clothes (both have reflux and we've dealt with lots of spew) and I will tell you the more you have the better! Ive not run out but come close.
I only use my recieving blankets the first 3 or 4 weeks. I havent used one since. I am holding on to them just in case I need them in the winter tho.
We live in AZ so we dont typically put clothes on the babies. We dress them in cute onsies. I have tons and tons of them. Too many (I bought lots of large lots of baby clothes on Craigslist) and some never even got worn. But it was nice to have them becuase we went thru alot of them. Not so many now, but in the begining it was constant changing of clothes.
I have PJ's that are kind of like a dress with elastic at the bottom, is that the same thing as what your talking about?
I put Brianne in Halo sleep sacks. She has been wearing them since birth. The hospital I work for now uses Halo sleep sacks instead of blankets. You even get one to take home. I guess that would mean I get 2. I don't want to get too many b/c they are not cheap.
In the beginning I used my recieving blankets to swaddle the twins but now I use the Swaddlemes. As for burp cloths I think you can never have too many. We go through about 10 a day. Now that its warm the babies don't wear sleepers but for the couple of weeks thats all they wore. Now they're in onesies most of the time and Gracyn is still in NB size and Nathan is in 0-3.
I always use the prefold diapers as burp clothes to, Nessy!I love those things.
I had always used the gerber cheapies until I got 5 dozen DSQ prefolds on CL and I now only use the gerbers when I am out of the DSQ's. I sewed ribbon on the edges of the prefolds to dress then up a bit.
