Re: How many diapers for a NB?

I may be the opposite opinion, but I just never used in fitteds I think you 'll love the Snap Ez, I also liked Mutts, KHW, Sugar Plum Babies, and the small PW's are really more like NB size(at least they were for me)....never liked the Kissaluv 0's much, my guy was too heavy a wetter....

Re: How many diapers for a NB?

I know that I will NOT use prefolds, I just know that they will annoy me, and I don't need stress with a nb. I just made up a bunch of fitted contours that I don't even have to think about, just lay in a cover and boom done. I have a total of 26 nb dipes, I was told on another board that unless I want to do laundrey daily, I should probobly have about 36. So there you go. I don't mind doing laundry every day and a half, so I should be about set.

2 skb fitteds
2 Miniroos
2 very baby fitteds
1 Mutt
1 sellin threads fitteds
1 fmbg AIO
1 nb fitted
6 nb fitted contours

I am also going to add 2 Little M's AIO's.

ETA: I forgot, I also have 2 preemie cuddlebuns.

I only have 4 covers, 2 Prowraps, a velcro tab gerber, and a wool, I am going to be making a few more fleece covers to use with my contours and fitteds.

Re: How many diapers for a NB?

For your stash I think I would add some fitteds, a few pieces of wool and some covers for those fitteds and prefolds.

I just went over my stash yesterday (getting baby crazy here) and this is what I have in NB size (my small stash is a tad different):

16 KL0's
1 NB Mutt
10 NB/Sm dri line fitteds
1 XS VB pocket
24 preemie prefolds
6 NB contours
10 covers (various types, BSWW, WWWB, WAHM, Prowrap, Gerber EZ, ect)
2 wool soakers + 2 more on the way

I hope that is enough because I have banned myself from buying anymore NB or Sm sizes. I am thinking this baby will be about 8 1/2lbs (maybe coser to 9).
