Question Newbie stash worries

I’m new at this, since my dude isn’t due for another month, so please bear with me. Over the last few months I’ve built up what I thought would be a good stash to start with, however the pregnancy hormones/worries are starting to get to me and I’m now panicking that I don’t have enough tini-tiny diapers for when he first comes. A lot of my fitted start at 8 lbs, and I’m thinking he’s going to be on the wee side, especially since I’ve been dealing with PTL issues and he could very likely come early…

Anyway, here’s what I have so far – I know it looks like a lot, but is there enough in the itty bitty size? Should I add some newborn fitted, or maybe more CPFs, do you think? TIA!

24 Newborn CPFs (up to 8 lbs) (2.6.2)
18 Infant CPFs (4.8.4)
1 NB Liamz Bunz AIO
2 Wonderoos Pocket (grows with)
3 small Magic Alls AIO (8-15 lbs)
4 Small MJ’s fitted (8-13 lbs)
7 Small WAHM fitted
3 Small SwaddleBees pocket
1 SM Liamz Bunz AIO
3 Sz 1 Kissaluvs (10-25 lbs)
1 Bella Bottom fitted (8-40lbs)
1 Bug n Boo fitted, small
1 Zoom Baby fitted, Size 1 (12-22lbs)
1 Liamz Bunz Medium
1 Cat n tails fitted, Medium
4 Medium MJ’s (13-23 lbs) fitted
2 Medium Swaddlebees pocket
1 Beaker Buns fitted (Large?)
1 Zoom baby fitted, Size 2 (22-35lbs)

5 Newborn Bummis wraps (7-10 lbs)
2 Newborn Proraps (6-10)
6 Small Bummis wraps (8.5-15 lbs)
1 Small Bumkin wrap (9-16lbs)
1 Medium Bumkin Wrap (15-23 lbs)
2 Medium Bummis wraps (15-30 lbs)

12 Small Hemp insert/doublers
4 Small WAHM inserts
2 Wonderoo inserts
2 Medium Swaddlebees hemp
9 stay-dry doublers
2 Snappis
12 wipes
1 MOE bag

Re: Newbie stash worries

I'm thinking you'll be fine with what you have You can probably use the infant prefolds on your newborn if you run out of newborn ones and the number of wraps you have should be OK too.

ditto the prefolds alone would be enough if you realy needed too... babys grow quickly ds was born at 7 lbs lost wieght to 6.8 and was 10lbs by 4 wks.
BTW I am jealous of your stash ... wtg momma to be!

Re: Newbie stash worries

if you're really concerned about having some fitteds in the nb size i would say get about 8 to 12 (depending on how often you'll use them). otherwise you're good to go!!!

i agree to get some wipes too. IMO fl/fl are best for when they're really tiny b/c the others are a bit too bulky to get into those tiny folds easily and well. missmindi's are great and cheap!!!

you have plenty of pf's!!!

I'll "third" that on the wipes.....I started out with 24 and that lasted 2 days at the most. i just added 24 more MissMindis and that should be perfect.

It looks good! If you do want some nb fitteds, Kissaluvs 0 are great and you can often find them FSOT.

Re: Newbie stash worries

Man you are making me doubt my stash. LOL I think you will be fine. But I agree about the wipes. I have a 14 mo in Cd and 12 wipes won't last long. I have 2 dz already and plan to make at least 2 dz more. When are you due BTW, I am due Oct 3rd. Cant get here soon enough, except that I have too many projects to finish first, like those wipes, and a pouch. LOL

Re: Newbie stash worries

I bought a bunch of mutts and kissaluvs at the last minute becauase I had the same fear but ended up having a nine lber who gained weight steadily...so I only used the nb dipes for about 4 weeks...I am still learning to edit ........but you can always resell em and I did not do prefolds so it was crucial to keep me on cloth that I had small sizzes

I think you are fine. You can always use the premie CPF if you need to. You can make it work for sure with all that you have. They grow out of them sooooo fast.
