Critique My Stash, Please? FTM

I "think" we've finished our stash, but I am really hoping for some opinions since I am completely new at this! Please let me know if you think I have everything I need, or if there is something I've forgotten.

Newborn Stash: 26 Diapers + 6 Covers
12 fitteds (diaper drive thru. xs)
6 thirsties duo diapers (size 1)
2 BG newborn
6 Indian Pre-folds (infant size)
6 thirsties covers

Beyond Newborn Stash: 18 Diapers (I plan to get 6 more diapers. Not sure what kind yet)
12 BumGenius Freetime
6 Fuzzibunz Elite

Accessories:
2 Kissaluvs Antibacterial Pail liners
1 Kissaluvs Zippered wet bag
20 Thirsties Fab Cloth Wipes
Kissaluvs Diaper Lotion Potion

Looks great, but I'd personally add some more diapers to the newborn stash, maybe a dozen xs prefolds? With 26 diapers you'll be washing probably every 1 1/2 days
I'd get more wipes too, at least 40 is a good number

Re: Critique My Stash, Please? FTM

I agree with the pp in regards to a dozen xs prefolds being a good bet. They're totally multi-functional. Diapers, burp cloths, doublers, pocket stuffers, etc. Plus they'll give you some breathing room on the laundry. Or you could end up with one of the newbies that you change hourly, in which case they won't give you that extra time on laundry, but you'll definitely be glad you got them! A snappi, pair of pins or boingos would also be a good idea with your prefolds. Good luck and congrats!

That's what I was thinking too. A dozen more prefolds and twice the wipes.

Looks good! Like others said maybe add a few more newbie prefolds, but you could probably make due with what you have.

Re: Critique My Stash, Please? FTM

Thanks for all of the advice!

I know it would probably be best to have more prefolds, but to be honest..I just don't feel like paying the money to order more. Hopefully I can get by on them.

As far as wipes go...are there any you can buy in regular stores that are decent? Or a way to easily make your own? I can't sew to save my life.

You can just use wash cloths. I get the 18 packs at Walmart that are like $4.

Yes, what they all said. I would get 2 dozen imagine xs smart fit prefolds from nickis, and 2 dozen more wipes.

Do you use any type of solution to store your wipes in? I have a CD wipe warmer, and am wondering if I need anything else.
