I think we had about 4-6. As long as you keep up with them & don't lose them then you're good. But it never hurts to have back up!

3 should be plenty. I keep one in the diaper bag then 2 at the changing table in case one gets poopy it can be rinsed and use the other.
Size 2 is "toddler" size. You probably wont need that until closer to 1 depending on how big your baby is. Mine is tiny I can still use size 1 lol

Yeah I was holding off on 2's till I know what kind of cover we will use. Plus yeah idk not sure how by then we will be using cloths. I figured we didn't need any period but wasn't sure.

I heard you don't need snappis for newbors but that never worked for us. I always used ours.

I was thinking so. For some reason I can see these being taken by the big bros! We have gond over the new rules and things of everything but kids are kids. I think I will ask MIL to get some. We have 6 covers she asked if we needed more so I said yes it would be nice I also said a pack of snappis. I am worried how the sprayer on the toilet is gonna go. Husband hooked it up last night, and we sat the kids down ages 9 6 and 5 and told them it ISN'T a toy no spraying it at each other because LOL it is toilet water! They don't know it is clean water right from the water hookup. We just figured it would keep them away, since toilet water is gross! Hopefully that keeps them away. Doubt it! But maybe for a few weeks.

HMMM, I think I will use them. We got a box of newborn diapers. It is already open so we need to use it. But that was also before I decided to try cloth. I am so EXCITED about cloth. Yeah I am a dork, but omg covers are SO CUTE. Anyways I have so many telling me you don't have to use them, don't need this and that. I guess until he comes I won't know what works for him and us.

That's exactly it. Its trial and error and you have to find what works for you and your family :)

Yeah it is overwhelming all the ways you can do this! When I was researching it I was so lost. LOL I just kept asking thousands of questions till I narrowed it all down and got to cloth diapers using snappis with covers. We got the covers that are newborn to toddler, one size. Not pockets not all in ones lol. It is a LOT!

Yes it is at first. Btw if you have small or average babies the OS covers may not work. You might need a couple smaller covers to hold you over until baby is a bit bigger.
