Re: What's in your newborn stash?

We are going simple, too. I bought my first diapers last week. I also had several prefolds in my hope drawer that I have had for several years.

I have told DH that I will buy a little bit at a time so the expense is spread out.

I have:
1 gmd workhorse orange w/snaps
1 gmd workhorse yellow w/snaps
6 bleached gmd orange prefolds
6 unbleached gmd green (old sizing) prefolds
6 tiny tush unbleached infant prefolds
1 thirsties size 1 duo wrap

Need to buy:
15 gmd workhorse orange w/snaps
23 gmd workhorse yellow w/snaps
12 gmd unbleached orange prefolds
24 gmd unbleached yellow prefolds
11 thirsties size 1 duo wraps

It looks like our to buy list is very similar. I really think that 2 dozen prefolds will keep us good while we are so busy the first few weeks in addition to what we have. I hope to keep baby in prefolds since they were my favorite with my daughter.
I'm so intimidated with cover buying. I haven't even looked into them yet.

Re: What's in your newborn stash?

I am almost done with my newborn stash. But I've been working on it for 2 years! I hated the nb diapers I had last time, so my dh said I could build my ideal stash for "next time". And now it is "next time".

I have:
22 nb Nana's bottoms aios
19 nb simplex
19 various nb fitteds (dreameze, snicklefritz, clovers)
5 nb PUL covers (thirsties and RaR)
3 xs wool covers
1 grovia nb aio
A bunch of prefolds (I don't think I'll use them much, but I have a ton of them from last time incase I decide to).

Still want for nb size: a few more fitteds and 2 xs rainbow waters covers

For smalls, I have:
12 small Nana's Bottoms aios
10 small BG aios
12 dreameze fitteds
14 GMD yellow workhorses
7 simplex meduims (should start fitting at 12 lbs. which is like 2 weeks old for my babies)
A bunch of prefolds
2 wool covers
2 OS RaR covers

Still want: 2 small rainbow waters covers, 8 more simplex, maybe another PUL cover of some sort.

I know!! DH thinks I need to scale back...if he only knew how simple this stash is. I am going to try to have my small stash ready when this baby is born so I don't have to diaper shop right after he/she is born.

I decided on thirsties duo because 1) they have double gussets and 2) they fit more than one size and 3) they are not as expensive as BG and simplex. Hopefully they will work well and fit right.

Re: What's in your newborn stash?

I have soooo many prefolds, and quite a few white small covers, but I want to get a few gender specific covers once we know who is in there. And I'll knit up a few shorties for him (or just use the ones I already have for her.)

Re: What's in your newborn stash?

I don't really know what is in my stash right now- I sold a bunch of pockets and things after DD stopped needing diapers during the day.
Some of my stuff is 'girly' but even if it turns out I'm having a boy I'll likely use it because I'm not too concerned about my son wearing purple or pink diapers!

For newborn stuff we have:
1 dozen orange edged GMD clotheez prefolds
1 dozen orange edged seconds from the cyber Monday sale!
6 orange edge GMD workhorse organics
1 bummis SWW cover newborn (pink flowers, applix)
2 Thirsties Duo Covers size 1 with applix (picked up the second one on Cyber Monday)
1 newborn Bummis super snap cover, white
1 newborn Bummis original cover applix, white
1 Thirsties Small cover, periwinkle with applix

2 dozen yellow edged clotheez prefolds
6 original snapping workhorses (GMD Cyber Monday sale)

Depending on how big this baby is we all have:
We also have 8-12 (I cannot remember how many) OS BG Elementals
3 OS BG pockets (not the newest version)
3 OS Smartipants pockets
1 Medium? Swaddlebees simplex 2.0
3 Grovia OS AIOs, pretty worn but probably functional
6 Large Clotheez organic flats
12+ flats that are actually flour sack cloth towels
some random OS covers (GroVia, knickernappies, Bummis that need new applix)

I'm sure there is more random pocket diapers I got free with purchases and I am forgetting about. I sold all our fuzzibunz, GroVia snap in soakers and some covers. This time we are doing more natural fibers, covers, and AIOs for outings.

DD fit into some OS diapers right away, and others we didn't get a good leg fit until 10-12ish pounds. She was 8lbs, we'll see how big this babe is.
