Planning diaper stashes yet

Is anyone else planning out their diaper stashes yet? I have like 30 NB bamboo pockets on the way that I got a great price on. Also thinking about having some prefolds I have turned into extended tab prefolds. And also looking into getting some GMD workhorse diapers.

How many diapers should I have? I never CD my older ones til they hit about 3-4 months and fit into the OS.

Re: Planning diaper stashes yet

I *loved* the GMD newborn prefolds and Thirsties covers for DS...we used that until he was about 7 months and then moved to pockets (I <3 Sunbabies). You need 25-30 diapers to do laundry every other day (which you shouldn't wait longer than that no matter how many dipes you have unless you do a rinse cycle on non-wash days).

I am set for diapers, but I will be getting a few extra covers from here when it gets closer to time. I am stalking the FSOT boards now to try and spot deals.

Eh, I think that is a personal preference. I've been cloth diapering for 6 years (just never the NB stage) and have always washed every 3-4 days with no pre rinsing the diapers and have never had a problem.

I have prefolds left over from DD. I will get some covers too. I really like pockets though. I ordered some small drybees on clearance and I will get some xs fuzzi bunz seconds I think. I am gonna try to sew up some fitteds or ET my mom to. I might get a couple of happy heiny mini they have some fabulously cute prints. It is hard not to go crazy ith the nb dopes since I already have enough bg and medium drybees that I will convert to os (already converted them to snaps). I cant really justify buying more one size but I can the nb fluff. I love nb fluff.

I sold most all of my nb fluff from joslyn(6 months old) but really i think i am just gonna stick with the small bottombumpers we are still using. They fit fine early on and i have a bunch. The rest of the nb dipes were grown out of way too fast to justify buying again.

Re: Planning diaper stashes yet

I've started... I only have 5 Isme Visme covers and a pair of boingos is on its way. I need to get some flats, prefolds and wipes. I'm also thinking about getting some softbums. I'll probably also buy some kawaii bamboos, snappis and more covers.

ah ha ... have you used them before? They look cute and sound absorbent. I don't want to do a lot of pockets but I can't resist these for nighttime at least.

Re: Planning diaper stashes yet

I am a cover kind of mama so I think I am going to do Thirsties Duo size 1 with prefolds. I just have to figure out what kind of prefolds I want to get. I have a whole stash of flips that the newbie will share with DD2 (if we don't get her PL'd before he/she arrives) once he/she is big enough for the os.
