Can we talk diapers again.....puleasssee,I need help *progress report post 37*

My life is becoming over run again I need to get back on the badwagon, I have cleared out a lot but hit a plateu. Diapers.

Is someone willing to hold my hand and help me work through this and make decisions. I am having a hard time and feeling really down about it. I can post a list of what I have, whats coming, yes I ordered more shame shame shame, and what I think I still need that last parts itty bitty.

It would mean a lot to me inserts bashy eyelashes here.

My issue is overpreparing for 2 kids, I know my son, I am terrified of 2 in cloth and being under prepaired.

************************************************** **********************************
About us:
DS is going to turn 2 in december not showing any signs of being ready to potty learn he gets about 6 wet diapers a day, but he has gut issues and days where he may poop up to 5 times, normally that overlaps with the wets some but requires extra on hand.

Newbie due end of the month. I am not so worried about newborn diapers, but rather when they overlap in os.

The beast that is to be concured with notes:Pocket diapers:
OS: 23 On order: 13 For a combined OS 36
Mediums: 10
larges: 11

Notes on pockets: the larges can go on my son but are big, he is currently 22 pounds they start to fit at 25, so it would overlap for 5 pounds with os, but do I need them? Now his mediums which fit him perfect and all my OS will fit to 30 pounds. He is a petite little man he just started wearing size 18 months, its pretty unlikely he will ever need a diaper bigger then one size right? Lets say I get rid of larges I have 10 just for him plus 36 that fit both boys. Total 46 diapers for 2 kids in pockets.

Covers and prefolds my safety net.I keep these for if I run out of diapers and I never do. ...
Covers:
5 os
1 medium (its cute geny has skulls I really like it want it to stay)
1 duo size 2 (again owls I want him to stay)

Prefolds:
26 regular- my logic 2 overlapping in the same size...irrational, one dozen is tie dye I like those most

Related: I use fitteds at night. I am happy with the numbers 6 os, 2 size 2, and 6 daytime only worthy for rash times for 2 kids, but I need to consider covers for those. So 8 night time for 2 kids and 6 day time for ds with skin issues.

notes:
My thoughts- Get rid of one dozen regular prefolds as well? I am thinking 5 os with the 2 sizes for 7 total is ok for 2 kids. Seems less but rarelly used and I want to limit bringing in more, if its strongly felt I should have more Ihave a duo in my for sale pile I could pull back and have 8 for 2 kids.

For reference if anyone wants to comment on the newbie diapers I have:
18 alva newborn pockets
5 fitteds
12 preemie prefolds
12 newborn
12 infant
2 xs, 2 sm and 2 duo 1 covers.

should I keep all that for the newbie phase?

Re: Can we talk diapers again.....puleasssee,I need help

I have one in cloth, my last baby, and I have toooo many diapers. I bought one system (Flips and prefolds.) Then when DD was tiny, I bought a whole new system (Best Bottom) but sadly I don't love them on my chubby gal and I sunk too much money into them. I feel diaper regret. And I know I'm going to lose money on them.

I also have all the things she's outgrown, ready to sell but not quite mentally ready to let go of my tiny newborn fluff, knowing I won't use it again. *sad*

I really need to get my butt in gear and just sell it already. I'll help you if you'll help me!

ETA -

I have:
12 Flips
4 assorted covers (BSWW mediums, two WAHM)
about 40 infant prefolds (I trifold to stuff the covers, but they don't fit around)
about 40 premium prefolds (fit around an can be snappied, but don't fit to stuff the covers)

I put her in trifolded stuffed covers 99% of the time. She's in disposables overnight (nothing else seems to work without her getting a rash from being wet too long.)

I could easily get by with just the infant prefolds stuffed into the covers, probably until she potty trains, but I am nervous to let go of the ones that fit around - even though I hardly ever actually put them on her!

I also have 12 Best Bottoms covers, and will sell this whole system once I group it all together (there might be a few more floating around.)
28 medium inserts (now outgrown)
5 medium overnights
24 large hemp inserts (give DD a rash )
4 large overnights

All the newborn and small stuff that's outgrown - TONS! AIOs, pockets, covers, fitteds, things I had for DD4 and never used for baby, so.much.stuff. I don't even need to list it, I just need the gumption to sell it.

I felt the same, but felt better when I decided to keep a few for DD to use on her dolls and sold the rest.

Why not start with selling all but a dozen of the premiums, then you still have enough to use for a day if need arises You can try that an reasses if you want to keep those.

The thing is, I got these for next to nothing, and I couldn't replace them as cheaply as I bought them. :/ I might put all but a dozen in the top of their closet and see how I do for a while.

I pulled out the all the newborn and small stuff and am running it through the wash before listing here. I didn't realize just how much I had. The money will sure come in handy!

Okay, I've listed a ton!! I'm hopeful that they'll go quickly and free up some space in here.

Re: Can we talk diapers again.....puleasssee,I need help

Would you mind me asking how do you know what to list your diapers for? I have decided that I need to let go of my diapers.

I have all Me-made (but good quality) very baby newborns in fitteds and AIO's, small's and medium's fitteds and AIO's. Plus I have MEOS in varying qualities.

Re: Can we talk diapers again.....puleasssee,I need help

I'm struggling with what to keep too, but it's so much easier to help someone else decide what to do with their stash so here is what I would do...

Get rid of the large pockets now.

Keep the medium pockets until older DS is out of diapers... 36 pockets will be fine once you only have one in diapers

Get rid of all but one dozen regular Prefolds (keep the tie-dye ones you love!)

Keep all the preemie/nb/infant prefolds until your lo is too big for them.

Keep all the fitted dipes - I have 9 for coverless time for one baby and I wouldn't want less! (we don't even use them at night)

Keep all the little covers until your baby fits the os then get rid of everything but OS and the two that you love - I really don't think you need the extra duo 2...

I would also get two more NB covers (sorry... I know you are trying to get rid of things!)
