Re: Newborn stash planning anyone?

I am still debating newborn PF's. The only thing is that they say "Up to around 10lb." My last newborn was over 10lb.

Re: Newborn stash planning anyone?

I can't believe some of you are already done! I will not be done for a few more months I fear. And I am giving birth before many of you (July 4-18)! Glad I am not alone though. I do have the older stash more or less done, but the newborn stage, not even cut out yet!

2 wool overnight soakers
1 (or 2) thin wool day covers
5 PUL type covers

I live in a small non-corporate complex with 4 other units and two sets of washer dryers that are included in the rent, right under me, as easy washing in my own house. The washer and dryers are almost always unused. So I plan to wash every night. I *hate* things that smell. I take the trash out sometimes twice a day. I was considering keeping the diaper pail outside on the little patio off the babies room.

Any suggestions on the plan?
Hey it's the mama with the ninja baby! Welcome to August previously I used a trash can with a lid and never had stink issues. I would not keep them outside, however. If you are washing daily you should be good

Amber I'd go with infant then, I've read the *can* work on a newborn but are a little bulky. I have 6-7lb kids and these newborn prefolds are TINy! I have dobts they'll fit mine hah. You can always get some shipped 2 day mail from amazon if the babe pops out smaller.

I am only "done" with diapers because I saved all of our GN stuff from DS. I have PFs from infant through premium (maybe toddler?) and I raided my grandma's tea towel drawer before we sold her house and came out with 28-36 nice flat diapers LOL

And done is relative. I still plan on adding wool (of course ) and maybe a few BGE's when baby is older. I am also thinking about making some pre-flats for nb.

We only used the infant on DS and yes, they were bulky, even at 10lb. But he grew out of them in about 1-2 months, if I remember correctly, but he was HUGE =D

I didn't start with DS until a month before he was born. We went looking at houses at the 24 week mark and that took up all of my time. Then 2 weeks before we were going to close, DH got laid off. He got a job 2 weeks later and everything was fine, but I didn't even really get started till he was working again. BOY was that fun to get everything at once!

Oh I never use flats. I have about 22 green edge infant prefolds that I could use in a pinch, but nothing really for newbie stage. I then have all of DS stash which is a lot. Though I think I could use even more of a few of those too. I like a 3 day wash routine.

Re: Newborn stash planning anyone?

Has anyone used the Sbish Mini Snapless?

I am in retail therapy mode and am thinking about buying a 20 pack and a few preflats I read somewhere that a few people have used them for up to 4 months. We have a partial stash of the sbish snapless fitteds and I have a love-hate relationship with them. They have fit my 3yo awesomely since we bought them at about 18m, but poop gets stuck in the serging (one thing I hate the most about fitted dipes rofl), but with a EBF newbie, I could just toss them in the wash.

I think they may kick me off of the thrifty forum pretty soon
