I'd bring enough that you can wash every 3 days at your daughters.

Flats are going to be the easiest to wash in a front loader. If you can afford it, maybe get more flour sack flats, or if you have time, grab some from nickisdiapers.com and get a free cover.

Take your favorite covers, at least 6. Stuff pockets w/ flats.

Take the largest wet bag you have and 2 smaller ones (if you have them). Use the smaller ones during the day while you are out and about and dump them all in the large one at night. Keep it zipped up so it doesn't stink.

Flushable liners are you friend. It helps minimize the amount of poo you have to scrape/swish.

I'm kind of fuzzy from being sick, but LMK if you have any specific questions. We've done a lot of travel w/ cloth and it's not a big deal.

HE washers aren't scary. Is the detergent you use on your diapers HE compatible? I would bring it, if so, less changing factors while traveling.

Everywasher is different but I like to use the soak feature on mine for the prerinse (on warm) it uses the most water and sloshes everything around good. Then I do a long/heavy hot wash with extra rinse. Consider using less detergent -- probably what the HE rec is (vrs less) to get ensure CLEAN. Maybe make the extra rinse a warm/hot one to help ensure the detergent washes out.

I generally use sposies inserts when traveling but I generally don't travel where I know I can use a washer. If you think you might have long days out of the house might be nice to have around as an option.

I would agree (i didn't read you diaper list, too long), stuffing pockets or using covers with prefolds or flats is a good idea for ease. Then bring enough that you are comfortable for at least 2 days (unless there is a longer stretch you need to plan for).
