This stash will take us through til potty training, and includes back-up prefolds through about the first year, if this one is as chunky as my first!

I would consider not buying the whole stash at once. You may want to try some different options out before committing. What works well for one mamma/babe may not work for another (ex: skinny babes vs chubby babes, babes that pee a bit often vs those that take huge pees, those that poop a couple times a day vs. those who take a giant one every 3 or 4 or 5 days etc.)
