Want to buy organic workhorses but unsure about what color and how many ...

I am not afraid of a big stash however I am trying to be reasonable so I need some advice. I am diapering 2 babies and will be saving our entire stash for future babies (hoping for atleast 2 more). I want to buy some of the new organics but I am not sure what size to buy (I can buy 2 dozen total).

Here is my stash for a 2.5 year old & 2 week old :

20 GMD Orange Workhorses (already outgrown 14 snaps, 6 snapless)
29 GMD Yellow Workhorses (8 snapless , 21 snaps)
12 GMD Red Workhorses (12 snaps)
12 GMD Brown Workhorses (12 snaps)
12 GMD Green Workhorses (12 snaps)

My 2.5 year old wears Brown & Green
My 2 week old wears Yellow

I am hoping to place 1 order and round out a workhorse stash that could do birth-potty training washing every 2 days.

If it were me, I think I would get
6 brown
6 green

and then either 12 more red or 6 red and 6 orange. Depending on how the 20 orange worked out with this baby.

She wore 3 of them by day 3 she had outgrown the absorbancy on them and they didn't fit under her cord so I sized up and just folded those down

I think she said the babe outgrew oranges absorbancy super fast in another thread...so I wouldn't get those.

It seems like if you were havign two in dipes, the ones to stock up on would be the sizes that may overlap both babes/toddlers in dipes at the same time...so I wouldn't get more oranges or yellows...I'd work on the med-med-lg sizes...aside from that, not sure on specifics. Sounds like an awesome stash, though!

Oh my! In that case I agree, no more oranges.

I got some doublers in the mail today and she is back in oranges but I think I am going to go with the suggestion of buying more reds/browns

I think red pf, so brown wh last the longest size wise so I'd get more of those.

Just curious, what cover do you use with these?
