Diaper Covers & Prefolds question?

So, I'm not new to using cloth diapers but I'm new to using them on a newborn. I started using cloth pocket diapers when my youngest was 4 months.

I'm expecting again and trying build up a newborn stash. I currently have 16 AIO newborn fits 4lb to 13 lb. 32 prefolds and 4 covers.........

I intend on washing Every other day...... Do I need more diapers or should this be good until the new baby gets into the OS pockets?

I'm also building a newborn stash and I think that sounds like plenty!! I have a similar amount (maybe 40 changes?) and that should be enough to hold us through wash day also. Congrats to you!!

If you are washing every other day it should be fine. The only thing I would say is keep in mind the drying time of your aio's. When they are little they can go through 12-16 diapers a day without batting an eyelash . So if your aio's take awhile to dry or if you hang to dry ,you may not have them available every other day while they are drying. I planned on only using aio's with one of my littles and they were still damp after two cycles so I would have to hang them to finish so I was always out of diapers. I got some prefolds to fill the gap an ended up just using those all the time because it was easier.
