Great post! Do you wash them on hot? I see on their website they recommend washing on warm. I like to run one load on hot. I just think these are so cute!

Re: How much $$ for a NB stash?

I'm planned on cutting myself off at $200, lol, prob more like $250. So far we've got:
25 THX NB AIO's-$124
6 Bumgenius XS AIO's-$40
2 Bummis SWW NB-$10
=$174
And planning on getting 6-12 NB Indian prefolds from CottonBabies. A few more covers & then move to infant prefolds & small covers until dd#'s OS diapers fit.

2 sets of Boingos or Snappis: ~$10

So, about $205.
Remember, you have to pay shipping for Swaddlebees so your Simplex would cost just a little more :-)

I could do without 12 PFs and that snappi,
Which would bring me to $156.25. They are the only things I haven't ordered yet. It's a strong possibility that I won't get them.

Re: How much $$ for a NB stash?

I have already spent about $250 on my NB stash, but I bought more covers than needed for variety (plus some adorable prints I couldn't resist). Most of my covers are one-size though so they'll get a lot of use. The four that aren't one-size are for 10lbs and up - so practically one-size. The $250 includes:

36 NB Indian prefolds ($1.50ea)
4 one-size Econobum covers
6 one-size Flip covers
4 Coveralls covers (these are 10lbs+)

Before I splurged on the Coveralls I was around $173. And if I had just gone with the prefolds and Econobums (which cost $8.95ea) I would have kept it under $100. Keep in mind, though, that none of those totals include cloth wipes, snappis/pins, or wet bags/pail liners.

So, it's really about the amount of each item you want/need and which brand you go with (or if it's used or brand new). And make sure to shop around. I found IPFs for a variety of prices, but the cheapest (that I found, anyway) was $1.50ea.

Re: How much $$ for a NB stash?

If cost is really an issue, don't forget this option: http://www.diaperswappers.com/forum/...d.php?t=327943

But many used XS/newborn diapers are very low wear due to the short timeframe they're in use, and can be used and resold for pretty much what you bought them for, so it may help to think of it is a loan (short term if you're going to turn them over after 1 kid, longer if you plan to hold onto them).

I would deduct the wipes and boingo from the NB price since they will be used throughout

So really about 158 for NB. That's pretty good
