How many diapers for a NB?

Here's what I have:

4 Harleyz PUL pockets
5 Snap EZ PUL pockets
4 Kissaluvs 0
1 dz preemie and infant prefolds--but mainly want to use these as backups and inserts for pockets
1 Little Bean PUL AIO
And I'll make a few fleece AIOs

I know I need more, but what and how much? I'm thinking I need more fitteds and some wool and a few Bummis/Pro raps covers. I'm expecting this baby to be about 8- 8 1/2 lbs.

Re: How many diapers for a NB?

That's a great little stash I'd grab a couple wool soakers & 4-6 fitteds. I personally wouldn't buy any newborn wraps, I'd get smalls for that size baby, only my 6-7 lbers could wear newborns.

Re: How many diapers for a NB?

We have 10 xsmalls that fit her great...I find myself washing those once a day or so so that those are the ones she mostly wears. She's a month old, probably close to ten pounds (if not over ten pounds) and is still on the tighter snaps.

Looks like you could get by just fine with that stash!

I think 36 fitteds is a good number and 6-8 covers. With that stash, I'd probably hold off until your baby is born and then decide what you like and buy more of that

I can't imagine you really need more. That's a good start. Plus you will hate a few, and love a few. You'll want to order more after the baby comes.

Re: How many diapers for a NB?

okay, thanks andrea i kinda freaked out for a sec there lol. the ones i have so far are: gerber e-z covers, bummis (one snap and one velcro), sweet dreams, one by bluemoon, litewrap i think that's it for the PUL. the wool one is CYA and the others are wahms. i think that gives me a good variety...most are gerbers though.

I have to second both of these suggestions! I had way too much in my stash BEFORE dd was born and ended up hating a lot of what I had. I wish I had bought less and just used prefolds with covers until I found what I really liked, but I was just too intimidated with the folding and snappi-ing when I knew I'd be sleep deprived! Now I'm just holding off until she outgrows her newborn stuff to buy what I like in the small size, no sense investing money in more newborn stuff when she'll be out of it soon.
