What Am I Missing?

I have been lurking in the shadows for quite some time now. I have been reading everything I could to figure out what I wanted to buy. Long story short, dh and I are starting fertility treatments this month so we don't have any kiddos yet. I like to be prepared so I have started on a gender neutral stash.

So far I have:
4 RARs premie/newborn covers
4 Thirsties duo size 1 covers
36 Diaper Rite small flats
1 Kawaii one size pocket diaper
2 Doopsy one size pocket diapers
3 Bg one size pocket diapers
20 FB one size pocket diapers
15 flannel wipes
2 sets of Diaper Rite pins

I know I need:
~30 wipes
2 pail liners
2 wet bags

Now the question I have for all you experienced mommas is what am I missing?

I would get a snappi (or two or three).

I'm glad you reminded me! I will add that to my list of things to add. I am trying to keep things simple for my dh.

Maybe some fleece liners and wool. Good luck!

I think you're basically set! Sometimes NB fitteds or AIOs are nice for blurry nighttime changes though

I was thinking that I could make some fleece liners to save some money. What is the advantage with fleece liners? Wool is definitely out of the question due to price. We are doing cloth to save money and dh would have my head if he knew I bought wool.

Re: What Am I Missing?

Fleece gives your lo a stay dry feeling & is often easier to spray off poo than when it's directly on the diaper. Stay dry is nice for some babies esp at night or naps to help them nap longer. Your pocket dipes are all stay dry though.

I'd second the snappi, and maybe get a few prefolds or fitteds to make things a little bit easier than the flats if you find yourself tired and not feeling like folding the flats.

I hope the fertility treatments are successful and you're preggo quickly! It took over 2 yrs trying for us to get ds, and we went through all kinds of IF treatment. We lucked out though & got pregnant with him just after scheduling our IVF (but before we spent the money on it!).

I would double up on the amount of wipes that you have for sure. If not triple!

Thanks for the info on the fleece! I was thinking of getting some newborn prefolds until the pocket diapers start fitting.

Dh has only 1% normal sperm morphology so hopefully they can pick some good swimmers!! All my testing came back normal so our fingers are crossed that it happens quickly with a little medical intervention!
