Ideal newborn stash (#)
OK so not meaning brands... just wanting to know what would be your ideal newborn stash....
how many covers, fitteds, prefolds, aio's etc would you want to have for a healthy stash for a newborn.
Hope what I am asking makes sense :lostit: I cant remember how many dipes and what my stash consisted of for DC5

My first stash included 12 diapers and three covers. It was totally adequate while I was getting used to how they worked, laundering, etc. Once I "got on my feet" with CDing he was outgrowing the diapers and I felt confident to try new things.

Good luck! Best wishes on your new baby!

Right now, I have 32 Newborn fitteds, 9 covers (small and newborn), 12 IPF, 2-3 small pockets (maybe more, planning on making a few) and 1-2 AIO's. I think it sounds pretty ideal, letting me skip a day of laundry (I hope!)

I have 14 fitteds, 2 AIOs and 8 covers (3 wool, 5 thirsties) and I can go all day and a night...I still use some sposies, so I guess about 10 more fitteds?

But I like to wash every or every other day

18 preemie prefolds
18 GMD newborn prefolds
18 NB fitteds
18 NB AIO's
9 covers (wool & pul)

I'd like 2 dozen prefolds, 6 wool wraps, and 4 AIOs for the diaper bag.

In a perfect world?

Prefolds: 36
Fitteds: 12
PUL covers: 2
Wool wraps: 3
Wool longies/shorties: 4
Pockets: 6

My newborn could go through 24 dipes in a day... sometimes more. So I believe the more you have, the better off you are with a teeny one. I used pockets at night for the stay-dry factor, but in my "perfect world" list you could substitute 6 stay dry liners for pockets.
