I am 15 weeks, but overeager to make some "progress" on baby prep. I'm starting to look at our diaper stash. I've heard suggestions both ways... not to buy too much at the start, because you never know what is going to work for you, or alternatively, to buy everything you could possibly want, so you're not stuck trying to buy more with a baby in the mix.
This is what we have so far. Neither DH or I have any desire to use prefolds. I've tried to convince myself, but I'm just not interested in them. I want to use pretty much solely pockets.
3 newborn fitted diapers- need cover - 4-10lbs
4 newborn kushies AIO - 4-10lbs
7 small Fuzzibunz with microfibre inserts - 7-18lbs
7 small AMP AI2 diapers- 1 insert - 6-18lbs
6 AMP One Size DUO- 7-35lbs
1 Medium Minkee Preston's Pants with Babkicks Hemparoo Insert - 13-30lbs
3 Medium Fuzzibunz with Micofibre inserts - 15-30lbs
1 hemo booster
5 homemade inserts
And I just bought 2 dozen microfibre towels to use as inserts as well. They are a bit long though- can I just cut them down to size, or will the edge start to unravel?
I'm ok using sposies for the first few weeks as we catch our breath getting used to the new baby. But I would like to start CD'ing sooner rather than later. By about "8lbs", which I've heard is usually closer to 10lbs, we should have 20 diapers or so. I also have the 7 for the newborn stage, though I need to buy/create a cover for the 3 fitteds. I don't feel the need to buy any other newborn size though, we'll just wait until the small/OS start fitting.
So advice then I guess. We've got the 20... would you buy a few more OS dipes, or wait until the baby is here and see what fits best? I love the look/feel etc of the AMP dipes, and I do want to use them as they are made in my city-- but obviously only if they work as well as I expect them to. And when I do get settled on a final stash-- how many would you aim for (in pockets) if I want to do laundry every 3 days maybe? 30?
I can pick up two AMP OS pockets (seconds) right now in green and lime for $14, so I'm tempted to order those. But I'm also not crazy about the colors (silly I know!). I should probably wait until the next time they put the seconds on sale.
