I got a little behind on laundry and decided to make the best of it and show you what 3 days worth of diaper laundry looks like. Baby is 5 months old and 14lbs 8oz and fairly tall.

11 AIOs
12 pockets w/ inserts
5 fitteds
37 wipes
1 prefold & cover
3 pail liners
3 wetbags
6 fleece liners

Bum Genius 4.0 pockets stuffed with Flip organic cotton inserts are our go-to night diaper. LOVE these, and never a leak. We put a wool soaker over it so just in case there's a minor leak the sheets are dry in the morning. We usually do 1 middle of the night diaper change, but since he's rarely poopy in the night we might be cutting out that night change soon. This is the exact same night combo for DD (plus 2 doublers) that held her at 2 years old overnight and was on her up to 14 hours while she drank water all night. Impressive I must say. The secret is to use a wool soaker over it, and since it's not used much it lasts forever before it needs lanolin.

I love my Eli's wipes - just beautiful and affordable all around. All have flannel prints on one side and sherpa or bamboo/cotton velour on the other. Love them all. 4 dozen of them works perfectly, and they ended up being about a dollar each with me picking out the colors and she had a fast turn around time.

I've always kept a set of 6 preemie prefolds and 2 size 1 thirsties covers in the diaper bag as an emergency back up but have never actually used them. Usually I just take however many diapers with us we will need. I happened to use them this day to make sure they still fit. Luckily they do but I ended up taking them out of the car. Now that his OS dipes fit well I'm putting 6 custom WAHM pockets in the car because they are super cute to show off and since they are different than everything else they will always just go back in the car. That way I know there's always clean dipes waiting.

These also always go back in the car - a set of 6 sherpa wipes and 3 wetbags. These wipes are different than my others so I always know to put them back and always know I have wipes in the car.

Our primary stash is oBGE AIOs and Grovia AIOs. I want to try a few other AIOs when I get a chance because my ideal front snapping sized quick drying absorbent AIO seems to be mythical. I also have some WAHM and GMD fitteds. I rarely use them, but did use them recently coverless to treat a rash.

These Happy Heinys new & improved OS pockets with Babykicks Hemparoo inserts made their first debut since DD. DS tried out his first butternut squash and that just caused upset tummy and rashy poo. So to deal with his first real rash I used these pockets with stay dry, the AIOs with fleece liners, and the coverless fitteds. Frequent changes and grovia magic stick cleared it right up. DDs entire stash was pockets - HH BB and BG. Absolutely loved them because she couldn't handle natural fibers without getting rashy. This baby rocks natural fibers, so I'm happy to get a totally different cloth experience this time

All nicely tucked away in the changing table.
The bolded is brilliant and i am so stealing that idea! I always forget wipes or wet bag!!

Nice diaper stash!

After a year and a half of use, there is some fading and pilling. I think that goes with the nature of the fabric. I'm pretty good about putting the clean ones on the bottom of the pile so everything is getting used about the same. But some fabrics are definitely more worn than others.
