How Many Newborn Bodysuits Do I Need For A Baby?

"It depends" is always a good answer but I'm sure this is not what you are expecting. 

For a baby you typically need 4 to 6 bodysuits.

Q: How Many Newborn Bodysuits Do I Need For A Baby?
A: 4 to 6 bodysuits

You need to also take in consideration how much often do you wash the baby clothes and slightly adjust the amount based on that.

It's a good idea to have a mix of short-sleeved and long-sleeved bodysuits and that's something you need to adjust based on the weather conditions and temperature in your house, as well as how do you plan to dress your baby on top of the bodysuits.

How Many Newborn Overalls Do I Need For A Baby?

Very often the newborn will wear an overall above the bodysuit and just as frequently, the diaper will leek, the baby will vomit or will get wet, so you will have to change both pieces, bodysuit and overall. That's why is also a good idea to have the same number of overalls available for the baby.

For a newborn baby, you also need 4 to 6 overalls.

Having a lot of bodysuits and a lot of overalls it's not a good idea because the baby will soon grow to a bigger size and the bodysuits and overalls will not fit anymore. 

Even if you don't have too much time to wash baby's clothes, it's still not a good idea to buy a lot of bodysuits and overalls, as the dirty ones will continue to pile up and eventually you will have to wash them.

Keep in mind that your friends and family will love to buy clothes for the baby and you will probably get a lot more bodysuits and overalls than you really need, so it's not worth it buying more than 4-6 bodysuits and 4-6 overalls.
