@UK Bride:  Have you looked into a diaper service so at least you wouldn’t have to do the washing? It might really help! Most of them have discounts for multiples 🙂

I’m not a mum yet, but I’m a twin. My mum cloth diapered us with the old-school fold-up cloth diapers and she was happy with it. She did it pretty much until we were potty trained from what she’s told me.

@UK Bride:  I would totally CD twins! I cloth diaper my DD and LOVE CLOTH!

I think a diaper service for the newborn stage would be FANTASTIC if you have that option! Then like @babybuzz said you wouldn’t have to worry about washing and you could get into the swing of having 2 bubs! Seeing how your twins will be smaller than most term singletons it’ll be awhile before they would fit into fb or bg anyways so this would also mean you wouldn’t need to get a whole separate newborn stash (even though newborn stashes are super cute).

P was 6lb 1oz at birth and much leaner than most babies…. she was over 3 months before she fit in her OS diapers. During the newborn stage we had a small newborn stash that consisted of 15 prefolds w/ covers, 2 fb perfect size xsm, 2 CB OS (didn’t fit well), and 2 bg nb.  P was a POO machine & we had to wash everyday so that should give you an idea of stash size needs for twins.

We decided on Sunbaby diapers instead of some of the more name brand brands though and have been REALLY happy with them. They are much more economical in cost & work great. 12 dipes are around 60 bucks so building a large stash (which you’ll most certainly need).

IF you’re wanting an OS stash that would also work for newborns I’ve heard from other moms that Rumparooz diapers fit as little as 6 lbs! They’re on the pricier side BUT since they’re OS they should fit all the way through diaperhood!

Anyhoo here are a couple blogs of moms of twins that cloth diaper!

@UK Bride:  That is so awesome about the dipe service! With that kind of incentive I would most definitely CD!

You can get a good diaper pail bag in a med/large trash can (we picked one up with a “click” lid) and you’ll hardly notice the dirty dipes…. Especially if you breastfeed… bf baby poo doesn’t smell at all!

Are you wanting to cloth diaper to save money or because its safer for the babies? If the second choice is why I would say go with disposables like free and clear.

Also, have you looked into a cloth diapering co op? I am in one on facebook and you can seriously buy new CD for 3-5$ a piece.
