  • Three to four dozen. Every two to three days. What you need also is a big closed bucket. For a water bleach soap mix to soak them in after rinsing them out in the toilet. When the bucket is almost full. Pour the whole bucket in your washing machine and set it to spin. After that just wash as you would their baby clothes but in Hot water.

  • You need all kinds!! lol' You will also need to get some rubber pants to go over the cloth D'...I did those with my first born. 2nd child was to hard with her having hip displacia. I washed them everyday. I would throw them in a seperate container then in the washer at the end of the day. If there were poops I flushed tht down the potty and then it went in the seperate container till I did the laundry...
    Good luck...

  • Make sure to use the extra rinse cycle when you wash the diapers,,this way no detergent will irriatate baby's bottom!
