Wool Lovers ~ What is your ideal NEWBORN stash?

Will probably TTC soon and we didn't CD our DS until he was 3-mos old.

We will use mostly PF's with a newborn although I'll probably have a few KL0's as well.

If you've done the NB wool thing . . . what do you recommend? I'm not necessarily looking for brands but what types of items and how many of each should I have on-hand?

Soakers, wraps, longies, sleep sacks, wool blankets?

mine was a dozen longies (mix of interlock and knit), half a dozen interlock soakers, and 2 sleep gowns like this (seriously..first time you see your sweet baby cuddled up in this...i fell in love all over again. ):

we slipped it on Kellen at about 24 hours old.....he instantly relaxed and cuddled up and went to sleep. he was so warm and happy. if he had been able to wear it more (he can't handle wool. )..i would have so kept it for a keepsake.

I didn't do a sleep sack because K was born in August in Phoenix...lol. I didn't even pull out the regular sleep sacks. We lived in our Luxe soakers and a onesie. I love Luxe. I need more!!

Beautiful sleep sack. Do you mind me asking where you got it? I'm due in less than 7 weeks, and would love something like this. I've been stalking FSOT, but don't think I've seen anything like this.
