What's your Dream Stash 2012

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I saw this thread: www.mothering.com/community/t/1230763/whats-your-newborn-dream-stash/ and am now wondering what your favorites are 2 years later! I'm working on registering, so I'd love any advice on what to register for!

Right now I'm thinking:

Newborn: Mix of fitteds and prefolds, and newborn size covers; What are your favorite brands of fitteds, prefolds, and covers?

After newborn: Switching to a one size cover with inserts or prefolds. What are your favorite brands for a babe over 15 lbs?

Or any other advice would be appreciated. Thank you!

I ordered a few different ones online to see them in person, but it's tough to know how they'll do without trying them on a babe!

Well, both my girls were pretty small when born (5.5 and 6.5 lbs), so they didn't fit into their newborn diapers till they hit about 12lbs (around 2-3 months), so I just used disposables...for me, it just didn't make sense to buy preemie diapers,so we used disposables. Once they hit Bout 12lbs, though, I started using my Bum Genius one-size pockets (which I love, btw), and infant-size prefolds. At around 18 lbs (6 or 7 months, in our case) I start using my Fuzzi-bunz medium-size pockets. I recently acquired some second-hand AIOs, which I like for daycare, but I like the fact that you can change the insert in pocket diapers without going to the expense of buying a whole new diaper. Since all my diapers are second-hand, I've slowly replaced my worn out microfibre inserts with bamboo inserts by AMP (love their pocket diapers too).

I have som one-size bamboo fitteds for nighttime, I think they are by Kiwie Pie, but to be honest, we mostly use disposables at night. I find that the prolonged contact of urine to skin gives my babies rashes, and they wake up more often with cloth than disposables...but I have pretty highly-strung kids too...

Bumping for recommendations... I am wondering if one size diapers really work after the newborn size, i was reading Green Mountain Diaper website saying its not really true and maybe reasons for leaking..they thought wool was better for that.

We started my son in bungenious pockets 4.0 at about 1.5 or 2 weeks.  He would have been roughly 8 pounds.  They seemed to fit well.  The BG all in ones didn't work until he was closer to 9 pounds, the leg holes didn't get tight enough.  He's very thin though.

I'm mostly a pocket gal and love rumparooz. I used sposies until about 12 months though (silly me.. I was too intimidated to try earlier) so I can't help much with newborn stuff. I'm expecting #2 in July and that kiddo will be CD all the way. I have a dozen flats (which I looove) and will probably use those until kiddo fits into my OS pockets. I also have one applecheeks diap and some best bottoms AI2; both of which I love. I'm so happy that really all I'll have to spend on diapering kiddo #2 is maybe $30-40 to get three or so good newborn covers.
