Re: For those that have cd a nb

I didn't cloth diaper my first son till he was over a month. But he was a tiny boy so when we did start his one size were really bulky.

This time I'm making sure to have a diverse newborn stash since I bet this baby will be maybe 7 pounds when born, but likely 6 something. My husband refuses to use pins or snappi's and I'm not a huge prefold fan so I have a stash of various fitteds, BG XS, and Grovia Newborn.

I've always heard that the ideal stash has around 36 for a newborn since they need to be changed a lot. I also don't want to have to dig into the dryer right away on laundry day because I didn't have enough so I ended up getting about 36.

ddc

Im currently ing my 2nd newborn & figured I'd chime in...

Vincent is 5 lbs 8 oz in these pictures!

Our favorites:

Lil Joey's--buy used (got mine during the big FB sale for $9 each & that's a great price)







Newborn Nanipoos--these are HTF since they are no longer made. (fitted) I use wool as a cover & I had specially sized preemie wool made.





Preemie GMD Unbleached prefolds (dyed):





Luke (my firstborn) 6 lbs 3 oz:

Preemie Prefold



XS Thirsties cover-not sure what's under there, either a prefold or a Nani:



Newborn Mutt: (the fit of these on Vincent I'm not crazy about--he's too skinny)

Oh my gosh Steph, he is too precious! I love that doggone cute shirt, where did you get it??

I think I might have to get some Lil Joeys. I CDed my youngest from birth with prefolds and covers, and now he's in OS pockets. I planned to do the same with the newb, but I'm loving the Lil joeys!

No problem! I love showing off my kiddos!

As far as the shirt...they were from Carter's, came in a 3 pack and are no longer made. I love them too. So much that I buy them up at every thrift store I find them in!! We have several of the same shirt! I will probably list them FSOT when I'm done with this little fellow...because trying for another just isn't in our future.
