Don't know why I am asking but...nb diapering ?

I don't know why I am asking this as it will be at least a few years before we have another baby in the house, but I have been wondering. Diapering ds2 from birth was a challenge. I had only used sposies on a nb and cloth from age 2 so I totally wasn't prepared. I had a bunch of nb fitteds that he was way too big for from birth and he hated being naked so much and changes were such drama that fitteds were out for the first few months anyway. He didn't get into cloth full time until we got a decent stash of small fb's when he was 4 weeks old. So I was initially planning to plan ahead and buy a small stash of pockets for babe #3 but then I was thinking. I have something like 3 dozen soakers (snap in and lay in) doublers and inserts. Couldn't I just buy a couple dozen wrap covers and lay the soakers in them and use them like AIO's? That would be cheaper than a stash of pockets since small covers can be purchased used for about $3-$4 each if I shop around ahead of time. I could get 3dozen fairly cheaply. Has anyone done this? Does it work? I would only need to do it for a couple of months, till the baby gets past the squirty phase and doesn't need changed so often or so quickly. I have plenty of OS fitteds for about 3months and up. What do you think? Or should I go with my original pocket idea?

ETA: and should I plan on having nb covers as well or since my babies are 8.5lbs at birth would the smalls be fine.

Re: Don't know why I am asking but...nb diapering ?

I would think if you do this, you'd still need some NB covers because the soakers would in theory be trimmer and take up less space in the cover than a prefold or fitted would. I would get a couple of covers for cheap, and see how the soakers fit into them. This seems like a very workable option to me. Although in my experience, if the cover doesn't get poopy during a change, you could easily get by with just 1 dozen of them and air out between changes until they get pooped on or start smelling like pee.
