Is this enough for a newborn? Your opinion of infant PFs on a newborn?

DD2 is arriving in January. I have:

12 newborn size prefolds
14 infant size prefolds
2 xs Thirsties covers
5 Thirsties Duo Wraps (sz 1)
2 Flip covers

I also have about 30 one-size pocket diapers, which I plan to use with DD1 (who will be almost 2 when the new baby arrives).

My hope is to use prefolds and covers with the DD2 (starting as soon as we return home from the hospital), because I just don't think I can keep up with stuffing pockets for two babies during the early months!

Is this enough to get me through two days? I don't want to have to wash every day.

Also, has anyone else used infant prefolds on a newborn? Does it work ok? I figure I will trifold them the opposite way, to make them short enough to fit in the cover. DD1 was 7lbs 7 oz at birth, and I expect DD2 will be a similar size.

Thanks!!

I would get at least 12 more infant prefolds. NB prefold never fit my kids and were not absorbent enough. I used infant right from the start with DS who was 6lbs.

I agree with pp; get another dozen prefolds. I can't say how infant prefolds work on newbies, as I had small Imagines. Good luck!
