She was totally open to buying a whole big stash of nice stuff, and while it was tempting for brief moment - I went with simple. 24 GMD workhorse fitteds, 5 soft wool soakers, a stack of wipes and a hanging wetbag. Minimalist but functional.

It is amazing that his new stash will fit in a small basket and fit until PLing vs storing box after box of disposables. :-)
That's great!
