Tell me what you think of my simple flat/fitted/wool stash!
 
I'm just about done building my stash for baby #3 due in May (this is my first time CD'ing)

I love simplicity and my goal is to ultimately have a very simple stash of all flats, fitted, and mostly wool covers with a few pul covers for padfolding. I'm trying to keep my spending under $600...I think I'm at around $525 with everything listed below (not including the cost of the handknit and upcycled soakers - I already have a lot of the yarn and supplies for those...)

I'm using prefolds in my NB stash, because I wanted them for soaker pads/doublers anyway... Also I was getting nervous about figuring out flats during the NB daze!

Here's my list (red highlights are things I still need to buy, everything else is here or OTW)


Pul Covers:
6 NB (Imse Vimse, prowrap, thirsties, rumparooz)
7 Small (Imse Vimse, prowrap, bummies, thirsties)
2 OS (Econobum)
(?) 2 more OS Covers for Padfolding flats (thinking Grovia shells)

Wool Covers:
2 Wool Wraps (NB and Med Imse Vimse)
OS wool wrap - not sure which one
2-4 handknit soakers each in small, medium, and large
2-4 handknit longies in small, medium, and large

A few upcycled Katrina soakers

Fitted
6 NB GMD workhorse w/snaps
6 Small GMD workhorse closurless
18 OS Very Baby Closureless fitted made by me (supposed to fit 12 - 35 lbs)

Prefolds/Flats
24 preemie prefolds (probably just for doublers)
24 XS Imagine prefolds (will use as doublers when outgrown)
2 GMD prefolds each in S,M,Wide, and Lg (to try before buying...in case I hate flats!)
12 Small Diaper Rite Flats
12 Small GMD flats
6-12 Swaddlebees flats (trying to decide if I should order 1 or 2 packs)
12 Large GMD flats

Accessories:
4 snappis
8 Diaper pins
wool wash/wool cure
2 diaper pail liners
fleece liners
48 - 60 reusable wipes (in the process of making these now)

What do you think? Do I have way too many covers (I feel like I do)? Anything else I should add?

My 2cents is to consider Flips over the Grovia Shells. I love Flips!

48-60 wipes is a lot. I don't think you need that many unless you really love sewing.

I would add a diaper sprayer. And a medium wetbag for the diaperbag.

I'm going back and forth about the flips vs grovia... I really want a plane print grovia (daddy is a pilot and I love orange!) but maybe I'll get a flip for the 2nd OS cover :thumbsup:

I am going to try fleece/disposable liners before I invest in a diaper sprayer... I EBF so I don't need to worry about it for the first 6 months...

and I didn't even think about a wet bag for my diaper bag (umm, I don't have a diaper bag either... I'm so out of practice)

Thanks!

the fit of grovia must really deepens on the baby then, we LOVE the fit of ours. I don't have any of the grovia soaker pads though, we just use them a covers. so if you're in love with the airplane print, I'd say go for it!

Great to hear! I'll be using it just as a cover too. Now I just need to decide on aplix or snap :headscratch:
