That looks great! My mom bought most of my stash for me, too! I'm still using it and we're on baby #3! I would advise holding off on buying any mediums until she's had a chance to try out the nbs and smalls, though.

Re: How does this look for a newborn stash?

I think swadlebees newborn simplex would be a good overnight diaper for a newborn bc the option to stuff or just use the attached insert. It also would fit to small size not just newborn. Your list looks awesome! I saw where a mom used a cheap spray bottle with stream jet setting on it to spray off diapers just alternative idea to your sprayer. I am thinking of returning my sprayer to try that. I'm due in July. Hope this helps.

1 dozen fitteds from Baby Coon Designs on Etsy
2 dozen NB workhorse
half dozen nb bamboo flats
few nb covers (not sure which ones)
2 wool soakers
2 wool longies
2-3 wool shorties

For smalls we will have:

18-24 small workhorse
1 dozen yellow-edge prefolds
half dozen bamboo flats (may add more if dd really likes them)
6-12 hemp flats
few covers if Flips don't fit yet
2 wool longies
2 wool soakers

Beyond that we are thinking:

18 or so medium workhorse
1 dozen medium pfs
the bamboo flats
the hemp flats
Flips covers
Flip overnight inserts
6-12 BG 4.0s to stuff for diaper bag and/or nighttime
wool
Ok, so I see 3.5 dozen newborn diapers, and about 4 dozen small diapers. FWIW, my baby was 8 lbs and the Flips (aplix) fit right away. I also really liked the Nikky newborn and small covers, though they fit small, IMO. My favorite PUL newborn cover was the Fancy Pansy, but she's on babymoon right now.

Personally, I'd go for newborn wool wraps rather than soakers, but that's a personal preference. I like soakers for Small sizes and up, though.

Don't forget she'll need detergent and wool wash/lanolin.

I really like newborn Nikky covers as well. I have several wool and a few cotton. They feature a dip down for the cord stump.

greengranny I read all you posts about stashing for your grandkids. You are such an awesome mother/grandmother to do that for them! I think the stash you have planned sounds great!
