Quoting LoveMyBubbaBoy:" 1 yard is more than enough! And I got mine at Joann's with a 40% off coupon. I haven't checked Walmart ... [snip!] ... always stick them in because it keeps his skin so nice and dry. I wash every other day and have more than enough to do that."

oh cool, so I could use the extra to make cloth wipes!!! :) I am currently using the disposable wipes we bought a big box of them a couple of weeks ago, but I hate that I can't just roll them up into the diaper anymore, so I have to hold the poopy ones just right and toss them into the trash......gross!! lol Sooo cloth wipes seems to be the next logical step, I can roll those up into the diaper and toss them into the wetbag. How many liners and wipes can you get out of a yard, do you think? If you do 8x8 wipes? I read you would need about 50 wipes for a day....

50 wipes a day?! I use one per diaper change most changes. Sometimes two. I'd say the most i use in a day is 15 wipes.

I actually use baby wash cloths. lol. Like the super cheap ones. They seem to be scrubbier than fleece would be. :) And I only use 1 per change (even poop) so I go through about 6-8 a day. But for fleece I guess if I were you I'd just start with a yard and see what I could get out of it. lol.

Same here. I was pretty darn lucky when I started buying, for like 3 months BumGenius had a promotion if you spent $10 you got a free sized AIO. So, that's how I started.

yeah I think some of these sites waaay overestimate. One said for one kid in diapers you need at least 2-3 DOZEN!! I think 2 dozen would be more than enough for every other day washing. 3 dozen just seems excessive, not necessary.

I made my own. I just couldn't justify paying $1 a piece for wipes, so I bought some flannel and a pack of cheap wash cloths and used that. For the washcloths I cut them in half and folded them over and sewed a straight stitch down the side. They're a bit frayed and probably won't last forever, but they wound up being like $3 for what made 20 wipes and they work great! For the flannel ones you can find tons of youtube videos to show you how to make them. If you don't sew you could just cut up an old t-shirt or something to use for now. :)
