Way too many newborn dipes

Why is preparing to cd so fun? The newbie is coming in June. My toddler is PL. here's my NB stash so far (not counting what I have for after the NB stage..):
12 tiny G covers (had from DS)
24 preemie PFs
2 PUL covers size 1
12 orange (NB) PFs (had from DS)
12 KL0
1 tiny upcycled wool cover (had from DS)

So 48 NB dipes. With enough covers to possibly diaper twins :/ what the heck is wrong with me?!!

Re: Way too many newborn dipes

I love your stash! Lol I just went through alllllll the nb diapers I purchased and sold some off, I had too many and too many different varieties which was stressing me out!! I'm doing Nana's bottoms aios and flats and thirsties covers. I've changed my mind 675467 times but this is ultimately my favorite stash. I had a few different brands of fitteds (like the KLOs!) That I was excited about using this time around but my washing situation is fickle and those are hard to keep clean compared to flats so I had to sell them off which made me sad! I'm going to look at exactly what I have so I can share

I ran into the problem with my last pregnancy of having my stash done early and then wanting to sell things and change it. My stash is currently loaned to my sister. My mom is bringing it back when she visits in a week for ds1 bday. So we will see if I have the same churning urges with this pregnancy too.
It's funny because I was tempted to get more nb fitteds because of your stash.

Its so hard!!! I was going to do all fitteds and covers and be done with it then I started thinking (over thinking lol) and for what I sold my fitteds for I was able to buy more diapers than i originally had in my nb stash because flats are so cheap. I am very stash content with my nb stash and diapers I'm using on my 18m old. It always ends up being flats and covers and now I like having the convienience of having some aios but I can't have an entire stash of aios due to my washing situation! I need to focus on adding new covers or something when I get the urge to try something new because I never end up sticking with it and go back to flats and covers...I get so annoyed with myself lol!

Re: Way too many newborn dipes

I'm so glad I'm not the only one! I'm due in April and just kept finding deals...also have never done cloth with a newborn so not sure what I will like (that's the excuse I give hubby, anyway...).
This is what I have:

24 GMD newborn prefolds
6 GMD flats
10 GMD newborn workhorses
3 Thirsties XS covers
5 Thirsties Duo sz 1 covers

So that sounds good, right?! But wait, there's more:

6 Kawaii newborn pockets
6 Sweet Pea newborn pockets
4 Blueberry Basix newborn AIOs
6 Tots Bots Teenyfits
6 THX newborn AIOs

What the heck am I going to do with all of these diapers?!
I know I will get rid of some AIOs once I figure out what works and what doesn't...

And this doesn't count what I have for OS.

I don't think that's too many. That's 48 changes IF everything fits at once and works for absorbency, but based on my last two experiences CDing a newborn (and still currently CDing a newborn) not everything will fit/work at once.
