I would suggest a few more nb covers. You need enough for about 36 changes. Your OS don't count towards that number because they really won't fit for a while.

How many newborn sized prefolds do you have?

Re: Stash Advice Needed :)

Assuming you are going to use prefolds for the newborn stage how many do you have? You will need at least 30-36 and I would add at least 3-4 more NB sized covers (could also use thirsties duo size 1).

Re: Stash Advice Needed :)

I agree count up your smallest prefolds (ones 11x11 to 12x13) and see how many you have. Then make sure + the 8 diapers you have that you have at least 30 changes. Also check your inserts which ones fit in the nb covers and that allowed to touch baby skin (eg not all Microfiber). You can add that to your number of changes (if you want).

Now to determine the number of covers you need. If you are going to snappi on you could divide the number of prefolds by about 4 and see how many covers you need. If you are tri-folding (or using inserts) you might want to make it 2-3 changes for each cover.

As for which covers, I like covers that will last awhile so Thirsties duo and maybe the RAR nb cover (if you want it to fit even smaller).

Thank you ladies!! I have been looking around and I did order a couple Thirsties Duo covers and Im probably going with a couple more rumparoo covers.

I also bought 4 Lil'Joey Rumparoo AIO's. Very tiny so hopefully they have a perfect NB fit.
