What Will I Need?

Using Real Nappies- What will I need to use Real Nappies

As a general guide, you will need somewhere between 15-25 real nappies (depending on how often you intend to wash) and if you are opting for a 2-part system (nappy and waterproof cover) you will need only about 4-5 of the covers/wraps, as these only need to be washed every few uses or when soiled.

If you opt for a quick drying type of nappy, then you can get away with less nappies in total as your rotation will be quicker.

So what will you need?
