Help! Newbie- need advice on stash
I have bought some things to get me going here, but I've never CD'd before. I live in Mexico, and have yet to find a local source of cloth diapers. Plus, you can't ship down used clothing w/out a permit. However, from time to time, I am able to pick some up/send some down as I and my friends travel to and from the States. My baby will be arriving in October, and I'd like to have stuff to try in the smalls, and some diapers in the mediums/ transition time, in case I'm unable to ship for a while once my baby hits medium.
So, I have a stash now I bought used here, and an opportunity to pick up stuff in a couple of weeks.
But CD'ing is totally greek to me, and I really would love help from the experts to find out-
A. Can I do night-time diapering with this stash?
B. If I were to supplement w/ prefolds for newborn through medium, how many should I buy, and of what type and size?
C. what more would it be a good idea to buy?
I am looking to wash every 2 days, although since we line dry, it would be nice to have a day's leeway in case it's raining for a few days and I need to dry indoors.
So this is my stash (coming in the near future).
1 wool that has shrunk to newborn size
8 gerber prefold birdseye diapers
10 Kissaluv contours small/newborn
6 Kushies AIO's small
1 Bumkinks AIO small
6 WAHM pockets that are listed as medium/fit like small
1 Annie Marie Padory (no idea what type)
3 KL fitted 1's
1 black fitted
6 fitted w/ snap on soakers
Not specified: 1 WAHM fitted
1 wool that has shrunk
1 hemp trifold
So I'm totally confused on what more I need. Is anyone willing to look at this and help me out?

I have no experience CDing a newborn, but I am sure some mamas will be able to help you out.
