What's in your NB stash...

Ok, so I am SURE this has been talked about over and over again. Frankly though, I just don't have the time to go looking through all of the old threads as I am to be studying for my IBCLC exam that is on Monday!

So, what do you all have in your NB/little stage stashes. My older 2 boys never reached 12lbs probably until like 4-6 months so they were small and still are. So I am looking for things that will fit smaller babies. I have some items, but need to get more and I just can't decide on what to get. THis is what I have so far...

Tot Bot Tiny Fits (aplix, etc. for daycare use)
Blueberry Mini OS
NB Muttaquin Baby's fitteds
-think that is pretty much it

I am contemplating on if I should get some of the following...

prefolds in premie/NB (have some GMD in yellow and red edge for bigger sizes)
possibly some more Blueberry mini's
Best Bottoms in the size smalls

What do you all think? I am just so scattered brained right now. I SHOULD be studying for my test on Monday and not be on here...So I am just looking for some more advice! Thanks!

Re: What's in your NB stash...

I don't have any advice because this will be my first time cd'ing a newborn but so far I have....

33 rearz better than organic prefolds (need to be prepped)
6 bg xs aio's for night times
2 knit wool soakers
5 Green line covers that I've heard that you can get down to nb size (but havent tried it yet)

Thats about it, I think we'll try to stay pretty simple and see how things go.

Oh and 3 packs of 7th gen sposies (for hubby and to use until meconium is gone)

Re: What's in your NB stash...

I'm waiting on a baby to show up any day now and my newborn stash is all ready to go. Its a super simple stash but that is my favorite kind, it keeps me from feeling overwhelmed postpartum.

36 NB Imagine prefolds
24 small Imagine prefolds
8 NB Bummis Superbrite covers
6 Thirsties duos size 1 covers
8 S Bummis Superbrite covers
5 BG 4.0 aplix pockets stuffed w/ size 1 Thirsties prefolds (for nights after the first few weeks)

I'm planning on mostly trifolding unless I have a baby that poops more than my others did. I tend to have babies that poop a tiny bit each change (plus a big explosion once a day lol), which means we need tons of diapers but we shouldn't need a new cover each change. I don't mind using a snappi if needed but I'd prefer not if we can get away with it.

Re: What's in your NB stash...

We had mostly Lil joeys and XS BGs. I liked them both, but really liked the Lil Joeys for the beginning. My dd was born at 7lb 10oz and at 8 wks is almost 12lbs. A little chunker lol She is almost too small for the lil joeys now though. I say that if you tend to have babies on the smaller side then they will be perfect.
My whole nb stash was
12 XS bgs
12 Lil Joeys
6 Nb Grovia
2 Doodle dypes
and that was always plenty of diapers for us.

Re: What's in your NB stash...

All I have right now is 2doz gmd orange, 2doz gmd yellow, 4 S BSWW covers, and about 6 wonderwraps. I was going to stick w/ that until we were done w/ the constant pooping stage but now I am feeling like I should get some fitteds or pockets or something for nighttime. I have 2 FBOS my ds outgrew but now sure they'll fit a newborn? My last baby was 9.5lbs.
