How you use your stash?

So my addiction has made my stash grow to beyond what I need, but I love it and am happy! However, I am trying to decide when to use what and how to rotate them. Should I change the style every diaper change? Every day? I have 15 small ai2s, 7 one size pockets, 10 prefolds, 6 fitteds, and then of course covers (pul, wool, and fleece). What's a good rotation?

I usually rotate type by day. So I'll use prefolds one day and pockets the next day.

My iDevices are out to get me. Please excuse mistakes.

I totally can't handle the idea of different kinds of diapers. I have mostly FBs and I really can't bring myself to use anything else I have because it is different. I should really just sell everything else. I can't even imagine rotating type each diaper change. That would drive me nuts.

I use various styles throughout the day. For the first diaper of the day, I usually snappi on a prefold under a PUL cover because it's easy to spray poop off, and he is usually a morning pooper (although lately he's switching it up on me!) The rest of the day is either a snappid flat under a PUL cover, or a pad folded flat in the same cover, or an AIO or pocket if I need something to just grab and toss on. I may only use one or two AIO/pockets per day, or on a crazy day I might use nothing but them. Really it just depends on what I have going on, everyone's moods, etc.

Mine just depends on my mood. Nap time and out and about are always BG 4.0s. My favorite combo is a flip and flat underneath but my 9 month old is doing the alligator roll so it's kinda hard to snappi on a flat now a days.

We use AI2s (inserts or flats with covers) and pockets. I always use a pocket for nighttime, naps and if poo is imminent as they are much easier to spray out. I prefer AI2s the rest of the time though. And we use AIOs for the diaper bag b/c they are the easiest for changing while on the run.
