I personally prefer the Sandy's to the One-Size.... But's that a personal preferance really. I would order one intro package of each to see which you prefer (you can call to get a Sandy's and/or Toddle-Ease intro package).
If you only had the one child I wouldn't bother with the One-Size as he's outgrown the usefullness of it (only having to buy one set of diapers) but with another coming soon that's a different story.
I would actually advice that you consider the Toddle-Ease. They're not that much bigger than the Sandy's (they're actually the same size at the waist, just longer in the rise) and they fit my son well enough before he reached 30lbs. They'd definetly fit longer that way....
How many diapers depends on how often you want to wash. I'd say a toddler in daycare probably wouldn't really 'need' more than about 12-15 diapers. But then if you buy the One-Size you could get more so you'd have them for when the next one comes along.
And yes, it's perfectly alright to 'share' diapers. My children do it all the time and so do many people I know (I don't know anyone who has more than one child who would bother using seperate diapers and doing seperate washings....). They'll be constantly exposed to each other's germs anyway, so whatever one is in contact with, the other will be soon enough!
