The recommendation is between 24-30 dipes, I believe. My good friend CDs and she has 26, which she is selling me this week. We’ll have 32 pockets.

I would say you could do it with 20, but I am much more comfortable having 30ish in the regular rotation at our house.

Maybe some of the BTDT CDing moms can correct me here, but the research I’ve been doing suggests that when using AI2s you can get away with less covers than inserts.  One website suggested 1 cover for every 3-4 inserts, basically as many covers as soiled diapers in a day times the number of days between washings (does that make sense?). 

I’m also looking at AI2s when the time comes, so I’m curious as to others’ experiences.
