Re: How many AIOs for the newborn phase?
I didn't know what we would prefer so I started with 6 BG AIO's, 6 Kissaluvs AIO, 6 Kissaluvs fitted, 8 prefold. I only used a prefold once and didn't care for it. After a week the fitted starting leaking on us, so for the next two weeks I survived on 12 NB AIO's and a few OS AIO's, washing every day. After three weeks I preferred the OS AIO's because my boy was leaking through the NB size, and he was 7 lb 14 oz at birth. So at about 9 pounds I switched over completey. I would start with 24-30 and then be ready to buy more if you find yourself running low and having to wash everyday or your baby is small and you expect to use them longer.
