AIOS or Flats?

I keep going back and forth.

I LOVED flats with dd as a nb. I only had 12 but they were amazingly trim and easy. I had other diapers but I actually started not liking prefolds after I used flats.

With NB on the way I am getting 18 nb simplex have the old flats and covers and yellow edge gmds (I know it will be big but I will fold down)

I was thinking with 2 in cloth DD1 who is 17 month old and NB due in April that after the NB phase I would just buy a whole stash of simplexes--like 18 which will give me 24 simplexes. I have 4 bge, 6 4.0s and 4 flips, plus the flats.

My question--Is it crazy to get that many simplexes or should I just get half that and some more covers and flats. Money will not be an option but who doesn't like saving money right?

I am thinking bg 4.0 at night, simplexes for out and about. I will have 4 children and 2 in cloth I just want simple and I no longer want to buy sposies for back up. That is the goal for 2013.

Re: AIOS or Flats?

I had an all-Simplex stash for two in diapers, so that's my vote!

We also used 4.0s at night for the last 4 or so months, I loved everything about it that stash. Still do, but I only have 1 in diapers now.

if money isnt an issue why not get both and return/sell of whatever you dont reach for? Or just add as you go. I havent had 2 in dipes but for the nb i would have double as many as the toddler has. Also you might not like the simplexes for your nb so it would be expensive if they didnt work out, might want to consider that, every child fits every diaper different.

Re: AIOS or Flats?

I use a mix of simplex, ragababe and flats. I use to crave a one diaper stash. It's never going to happen.

So if I do all simplexes for 2--thinking when baby is 4 months and dd1 is around 22-23 months, how many would you have?

If you incorporated flats and covers--probably flips (unless there is another cover that is better) How many simplexes, flats, and covers?

I would do a mix of both. I can't say how many you would need though; I've never diapered more than one kiddo at a time.

About 15 mediums and 20 larges, I think. I had to wash every day so that was more than enough, and by the time the baby was 5 months old both kids fit in either size so definitely more than we *needed*.
