Re: opinions on my newborn stash please

I agree 3 more covers and don't be afraid of wool... it's not hard at all and you can get it for a reasonable price

Definitely more covers (and fewer snappies, but hey, whatever you're comfortable with!)

Also, don't forget wipes.

Wool - there are easy-care options, and the best thing about it is that you can reuse the cover lots of times without washing it, unlike PUL. You just need to wash it when poop or dirt gets on it, so it helps if you use fitteds underneath, or if you are super adept at jellyrolling those prefolds.

There are machine-washable woolies, mostly wool wraps made from wool flannel (Baby Beehinds, Imse Vimse), wool interlock, pre-felted recycled wool, and some knits (on the sturdier yarns). You'd wash the wool with other clothes, rather than with diapers, though.

I also think giving wool a try is great. I started out with wool wraps (sugars peas, stacinator, loveybums make them). You don't need a lot of wool covers becuase you only wash them when they or soiled or start to smell (about every 2 weeks). You can get by with 3 wool covers in each size but 4-6 is more comfortable. Good luck, relax and enjoy your baby!
