Re: Ideal newborn stash (#)

I think

12 fitteds
12 prefitteds
12 aios -- if i could find one that didn't leak or a combo or 12 more of fitteds/prefitteds if i couldn't find a leakproof aio.
6 covers

would be perfect.

Re: Ideal newborn stash (#)

This is what I have for our bean arriving soon:

Newborn stash:
12 newborn fitteds
12 newborn pockets
24 preemie prefolds
4 wool longies
10 PUL covers

This baby is due in July so I'm thinking the little one will end up being coverless most of the time and either in a T and diaper or a gown and diaper. I don't like any PUL covers I've tried so far so I don't have any.

Small stash for in between sizes or if we run out of newborn dipes:
6 AIOs
6 pockets
24 infant prefolds
16 (I think?) longies

I also can use flannel receiving blankets as backup "flats" if need be. I think I'm pretty set and super excited to meet this little one...just waiting now.

Well I'll find out in about 6 weeks if what I got will cut it or not.

I have...

2 dozen preemie prefolds (a few extra actually)
2 dozen infant prefolds
6 newborn proraps
7 small proraps

I wash for DD#1 every 1.5-2 days anyhow so I only really need enough for 2 days.

Re: Ideal newborn stash (#)

My DS went through 25 diapers a day as a newborn and we were in sposies. So what I have may seem like a lot for some people.

For DS2 (due in Sept), I have:

30 Kissaluv 0s
24 infant prefolds
2 covers (hoping to get a few more before the baby comes)

Ideally, I will be making my pockets in size small before he is born so that they are ready when he outgrows the newborn stash. DS was 12 lbs by 1 month old.

You have almost exactly described my stash!
