Are you planning on cloth diapering from the beginning?

I would say 24-36 dipes for newborn stage and 24 OS dipes for 3+ months. You will be washing about every two days, maybe three if you have a baby that doesn't go that often.

For newborn, I have all kinds of dipes. If you want to do it cheaply, you can do prefolds and covers. has inexpensive prefolds and Baby Monkeys has custom newborn covers that are supposed to be great (just ordered two) and they are only $5 a cover!!

If you want to do all-in-ones cheaply for newborns, THX looks like it would be great. You can get 20 for $100-$150 on eBay. Don't buy imagine all in ones as those got holes when I prepped them.

For non-newborn dipes, I have 26 one-size all in ones. I have bumgenius elementals and chelory. I also have 9 small ragababes.

My advice, do a bunch of research and order a bunch of different dipes from one store and look them over and try them on a doll or stuffed animal when they arrive. Figure out what you like best and send the rest back.

Good luck and have fun!!!
