This a big enough stash to start?

First child coming in three weeks. We have 20 pockets, and dozen flats.

Re: This a big enough stash to start?

Depending on the brand, most pockets don't fit an average to small newborn well. My newborns, born at 6+ lbs., wore newborn diapers for 6- 12 weeks, depending on the brand. Very few one size fit them at 6 weeks.

My kids are quite small, though.

Do you have covers for the flats, or are you using them to stuff the pockets?

I would just get 8 more flats, to stuff the pockets, and start with that.

Are they OS pockets? If so, you may want two dozen nB prefolds and 4 covers. I think those, plus the 20 pockets would be great.

I recommend Thirsties duo size 1. They say you need one cover for every 2-4 changes.

I say it depends on your OS diapers, as most will not fit a newbie. You could try this if your pockets have cross over snaps

also depends on how frequently you plan to launder?
