    Every other day, on occasion every 3rd day. Reason? When I get down to about 4 diapers, it's time to wash.

    Every 2-3 days, depending on what else I've got to wash that day, if we're planning on going somewhere and how many dipes and covers we have left.

    I have enough to go longer, but I usually wash every other day leaning to every 3rd day. I just get all weirded out that Noah's dipes will be DISGUSTING if I go too long.

    How do people do it who wash once/week? Do you use a wet pail? I use a dry pail and I always worry about mold (hasn't happened yet).

    every day. I have a very small stash. but even if I didnt I would probably still wash every day. maybe every other. my baby only poops about once a day (well yesterday it was like three times, and today she still hasnt) so I try to wash right after that. I hate stains. I have done it twice in one day before too. good thing I dont pay for water I guess...........

    Every day and rarely every other day, but mostly because I have a really young baby who poops! A LOT! :D I was washing every two-three days when it was just my oldest in diapers, and now that she's potty learned and we have the two month old, it's back to every day. My pail just can't hold much more than a day's worth of premium prefolds!

    I didn't vote because I've been washing about every 4-6 days: more than once a week but less than 2-3 times a week.
    When Louisa was in dipes I usually washed every other day, but with Morganna we are doing EC, so there aren't as many diapers to wash and there are hardly ever any poopy ones. If we have a lot of misses I might wash sooner so I don't run out, but I have about 2 dozen and we generally go through 1-5 in a day.

    I have two in dipes, so I wash somewhere between everyother day and 3 times a week, just depending on who's pooping where and how often.

    I actually LIKE to wash my diapers -- especially when there's a new one in the wash! :D
    I have enough prefolds that I could go a week probably... but I always wash when the PUL pockets are gone! LOL
