I'd say from our experience it is definitely doable. It's probably easier with prefolds and covers but we've always done pockets so on the middle shelf of the changing table we always had bins each labeled with the child's name to show whose diapers were whose. Our kiddos have all always been in cloth too (except for occasional vacation trips). How exciting that you get to try all of the new diapering things that are out now!

We have always bought our gifts at the dollar store and they are ALWAYS the most hilarious and best remembered gifts that show up!

Does anyone have experience with this happening and what did you do next? Does anyone's insurance cover the cost of diapers?
Well...I've tried other things but I NEED some XXL Fuzzi bunz so I'm bumping up because I'm still looking

Plus I like to have some extras for the diaper bag....
I'm curious is this is a stash amount that you'd recommend to a friend or a newbie. Really? 36-60 diapers? I guess that just seems like a HUGE amount to me so I was just wanting to make sure I understood you correctly. And could I ask why you would say 6-12 covers? I've never used pf's on a newborn so do you go through quite a few covers in a day? and could I ask how often do you wash when you have this many? I love reading others experiences
Is there a way that you could post pictures of what you have? The inside and outside? We used HH's in the medium size and loved them
What about getting the colored MEOS diapers? They are not colored on the interior so you could tell which side goes on the outside. The colors are beautiful too. And of course you know that great ME value holds up for superb resale. Just a thought! Congratulations on your new arrival. Hadn't gotten a chance to say that yet
