Thanks to Cathy for this Frugal Baby Tip!

I can't help wondering if this number (3-5 dozen cloth diapers) came from the days when we were using just flats and prefolds. When I was using Snugabye flat squares and Curity Stretch Gauze diapers on my older two, I almost always had to double diaper and even triple diaper at
night. So I would need a bare minimum of 3 dozen diapers to get through just a couple of days.

With good absorbent diapers, you need a minimum of 1 dozen. Newborn tend to go through 10-12 diapers a day. Two dozen diapers means you won't have to wash every day, and three dozen diapers is wonderful if you or the baby get sick and/or there just isn't time to do the laundry!
