Ready to go with cloth diapers? 

How many cloth diapers do you need for your entire diapering period?

Take into account the age of your baby or toddler.
  •  Newborns and infants will need 10 to 12 changes a day.
  • Toddler however, will need 8 to 10 changes a day.

You need to determine how often you will be doing your laundry.
Take into consideration that cloth diapers must be changes after they are soiled, wet or roughly every two – three hours during the day.

If you willing to do your laundry daily,
 you’ll need as least as many diapers as the number of diaper changes you do in one day.
 Example, you change diapers every 2 hours, so, 24 hours divided into 2 hours, you’ll require 1 dozen diapers.

For doing laundry every two days, you’ll have to multiply the amount to 2, which means, 1 dozen times 2. You’ll need 2 dozens and so on.

Here are some reasonable estimates of how many diapers will be needed:

Newborn (3 – 5 kg) : 2-3 dozens
Infant ( 6 – 12 kg) : 1.5 to 2 dozen
Toddler (13 – 17 kg) : 1 dozen
