Just my thought, but I would use a piece of fleece or something to cover the white of the diaper because that merconium (sp) poop stains. Like I said, just my thought.

I think it washed out just fine without the liner. I can't remember how many diapers I packed last time. I only stayed 24 hours so probably at least a dozen. I don't know if I'll stay one or two days this time, it hasn't been discussed. Packing the bag for the baby this weekend.

I'm just going to use the sposies the hospital provides I'm planning on leaving asap so just keeps things simpler.

I thought about it, but decided not to use the sposies.

I think I took a dozen NB and at least 6 smalls, as well as three covers. I packed just the other night!

I took 18 for Levi - he was born Monday morning, we came home Tuesday afternoon. Definitely didn't need all those diapers, but it was nice to have them all just in case, kwim?

Baby is expected to have wet and dirty diapers equal to # of days old, until day 5, so likely there's only going to be a few wet or dirty diapers to deal with overall. A dozen is likely plenty.
But, again, having more than enough makes for one less thing to worry about.

No, it doesn't. At all.
I've never used liners with our diapers, never had mec stain even a little bit. Now, breastmilk poo - that stains like heck!
