Re: wow i hope i have it all do i ??

what sizes are those 30 chinese prefolds? You'll probably need 2 or 3 dozen newborn ones if your babies are smallish. And then a couple dozen infant size too. Looks like you are gonna do pockets mostly (??) for the medium size but if not you will also need some premium size prefolds and you need more covers too. May need more newborn and small covers as well. Are you gonna do any fitteds? Do you have some snappis or pins?

what do you plan to use the gerber prefolds for? I've never tried them but alot of mamas here say they are not very absorbant.

Good luck with your new baby!

wow, you have a lot more than me. I didn't cd until earlier this year, so I'm no help w/a newborn. But gerber prefolds suck, I think that disposable diaper companies cut a deal with gerber to make those so people won't like cloth. Anyways, I cut mine to make wipes and burp rags. Good luck!

My first baby was 8lbs 3oz so the 30 prefolds are infant sizes they gerber prefolds were the first ones i bought before i found this board and befor i found out they were no good (
I would like to do mostly pockets and i was going wait and see how she grows to see if i need large ones or not the meds go from 15/25lbs and my first daughter when i potty trained her she was about 25 or so lbs.
What i was thinking of doing is doing the covers and prefolds when she is first born, when she hits 15lbs i will switch to pockets for her what was my idea hope it works LOL and then see how she grow to see when i need large or traning pants.
No snappes or pins i was just going to do tri fold and lay in the pro wrap

Gerbers work for burp cloths then you won't need your cpf for that. Pins or Snappis and you look good. If you end up using pf a lot you might need another cover or two- depends on how much they leak on the cover. Your pockets probably won't fit for at least a couple weeks.

Re: wow i hope i have it all do i ??

our dd is a little over a week old and this is what I have found:
First off I thought I had enough diapers boy was I wrong
She was 7lbs 5 oz and infant prefolds are WAY to big Im not sure what size prefolds you have but the preemie ones fit perfect but there not very absorbant so I double up so you need alot of them. The pockets and aio's I have do not hold BF poo at All I was bummed cuz I love the ease of them.
our fitteds have also worked very well I made some nb Very baby fitteds
I also have 4 nb proraps they work well no leaks so far with them

Re: wow i hope i have it all do i ??

I'd say you definately need some snappi's and some preemie prefolds. There are alot of good sites with picture instructions on how to fold and snappi or pin CPF's. You may want to practice on a doll before your baby gets here so that you aren't overwhelmed. Trifolding in a wrap doesn't keep BF poo in at all.

Good luck with your new little love

Re: wow i hope i have it all do i ??

I never used snappi or pins so I don't think they are a requirement. But you might want some on hand just in case. I do think you need at least 3 more covers in the small size. You can make the gerber prefolds work by trifolding a microfiber towel in them. Make sure the towel doesn't touch the baby though. They will double or triple your absorbancy without adding much bulk.
The rest looks good to me! Good luck!
