Tagging to follow.  I currently have 3 fitted crib sheets with two liners for each crib (twins) and I’m about to sew some changing pad covers and I’d like to know how many to make.

That is definitely enough. I would advise you just use disposable chucks pads on the changing table.

I found that 3 crib sheets and 2 changing pad covers were the perfect amount for me.

<br />Have fun filling out the rest of your registry 🙂

2 changing pad covers have been enough for me.  I have 3 sheets but I really only need 2.  I have 2 waterproof crib pads (underneath the sheets) that have been enough as well.

It depends how much laundry you want to do. i think your fine on crib sheets, but for me, we have a TON of changing pad covers – DD likes to pee when we take off her diaper, so the changing cover gets wet (we even have a cloth diaper that we put on top of the cover and she soaks that too). So we go through 2-3 covers a week. I don’t want to do laundry constantly, so we bought more 🙂

DZMeadowz:  I have 3 changing pad covers and 3 liners, and 3 crib sheets. Crib sheets stay pretty clean and nice. I have a boy, though, so liners and changing pad covers were a necessity, lol. I find that three was enough. I would wash one time a week, and that seems to work.

DZMeadowz:  I hve 4 sets of sheets but two is sufficient. I have 3 changing pad covers, two is sufficient there as well. I have 6 liners. You’ll be doing laundry often, so you don’t need tons!

I have 2 sheets and 2 changing pad covers….BUT if you plan on breastfeeding we found that the 6 waterproof liners on top of the changing pad covers were 100% necessary for the first 2 months when explosive and unprepared poops would happen at almost every diaper change.  Inevitably she would occasionally pee too when naked.  

Once she started pooping less we stopped using the liners.

We have four crib sheets and two would have been enough. We have two changing pad covers abd ended up using receiving blankets to cover the pad because DD would pee anytime we changed her diaper, even if she had just gone. Now that she is older 2 is enough.

As someone who just moved their child to the crib, we have two.  our child isn’t a very  messy baby though.  She slept in a pack n play for 6 months and then moved to the crib when she started pulling herself up and just getting too large for the pack n play.  As for changing covers, we rarely use the changing table, so we just have two for that as well.

I have two crib sheets right now for my 6.5 month old but I’d like to pick up at least one more. He spits up a lot so I like to change his sheets fairly often or else they smell bad. We have 3 change pad covers but we really only need two.
