How many Nappies will I need?
To get idea of how many nappies you may need, consider how many times a day do you change your baby’s nappy, and how often you want to wash? To give you an idea, it is recommended that a newborn needs changing every 2 to 3 hours, that’s between 10-12 times a day. An older baby will need changing up to 6 times a day*. Most people like to wash their nappies approximately every 2 days (we would recommend no more than 3 days). Based on this, you may need around 24-30 nappies for a newborn and 15 to 20 nappies for infants and toddlers.
If you are using prefolds or fitted nappies, we would recommend 4 to 7 covers. The covers don’t need to be washed at every change. Nappy covers can be simply wiped over with a damp cloth and left to dry.
